Rose and Pearls
by Olga

The project I am sharing today is an almost one layer and nearly one color card. Although the design is quite simple I have jazzed it up with some fun techniques. 

The large circle border layer I used is actually meant to work with another border die that serves as a bottom layer for it. But instead I decided to attach some pearls to the inside of the card so that each circle becomes a little window for a pearl.  

I have also used a punch tool to create more tiny circle windows - I scattered them around the card front and attached more pearls behind them.

A New Arrival
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5271-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could join us today! Today I am sharing a card I created that features this pair of sweet Little Rabbits! This could be a great Easter card idea, but it was actually created to welcome a brand new baby boy into our extended family! He's not here yet, but everyone is awaiting his arrival soon!

IMG_5267-wm

This card was so easy to make! I started by cutting out the Little Rabbits in teal, then cut the squares from the Double Stitch Square Frames in shades of blue and white. Can you imagine how cute this would look in pink or yellow too? Everything from the DoubleStitch Square Frames fits together so perfectly too!

IMG_5269-wm

These Little Rabbits would look great with our April challenge too, Spring Fever! A new arrival is on the way!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Seaside Birthday Greetings
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_2959

Hi there! Marybeth here today with this detailed: Seaside Dock and Wooden Rowboat dies from Poppystamps !

IMG_2963

I cut my dies out of colored cardstock then lightly shaded them with soft brushes to highlight the detail even more. The brushes help me keep it light, even and smoother than a sponge.

Each one( boat and dock) is layered twice then adhered with foam tape. The background was made by  shading and  kinda guessing where the water and land would be.

IMG_2961

 The brushes wash out very easily and dry fast. I also used watercolor cardstock for the base of my card.

 I added a little piece of twine to the dock and boat, for a little more 3d look of the card.

 Thanks so much for the visit and congratulations to all the Blog Blitz winners!

Coordinate Stamped Backgrounds with Ink Blended Images
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps easter card1

 The best part of creating your own stamped background is that you can create it in whatever colors of inks you own! NO matter what the occasion, if you have even just a handful of ink colors, you can perfectly coordinate your background to match the theme. But why stop there?

Use those same ink colors and an ink blending technique to color stamped die cut images or create coordinating tags too!

Rebecca keppel poppystamps easter card coordinating colors (2 of 2)

Check out this video to see how I created my easter egg background and then used ink blending to color my tag and stamped and die cut images:

 

I love how everything perfectly coordinates! I will definitely be using these two techniques together on future cards! Thanks for stopping by!

For my post today I am featuring the Big Circle Border Layer die; I think it adds a nice touch to my panel and allows the background color to show.

Mar 29 CU1 With

My bouquet was created using Peony Stems and Blossom, stamps and dies. The images were stamped with Memento Desert Sand onto watercolor paper and simply colored.

The following video will show you all the steps to make this card!
