Happy Easter Card
by Candice Crawford


Happy Wednesday crafty friends! Hope you are doing well and staying safe. 

Easter is this Sunday and there is still time to make your handmade Easter cards. If you a bit of inspiration, the new Woven Basket Pop Up Easel set is perfect for making your 2021 Easter cards. 

This set comes with the basket shaped cardbase, a layering piece for the basket along with the basket, grass, and bow. You can make the card as a Pop-up easel card or simply layer the basket image onto an A2 size card like I did here. 


This card came together quickly and easily.

First, I die cut the basket image from some cream colored cardstock and and inked the raised portions of the image with my Gathered Twigs distress oxide ink. 

Next, I die cut the layering piece of the basket from some white cardstock and inked the center of the panel with some Tumbled Glass distress ink. Then I die cut the grass image from some green cardstock. 

I adhered the grass image to detailed basket image. then adhered both pieces to the white basket layer panel. 


Next I die cut the easter eggs from the new Farm Fresh Eggs die from white cardstock and colored the eggs with my Kitch Flamingo, Cracked Pistachio and Mustard Seed distress ink. I also die cut the easter bunny for the basket from some chocolate brown cardstock using the Spring Bunnies die. Lastly I die cut the bow and sentiment from some gold colored cardstock. 


I adhered the grass, eggs, bunny and bow to the basket using some liquid adhesive. Then I attached the completed basket to the white basket layering piece. I popped up the entire basket image onto a pink A2 size cardbase using some 3M foam adhesive. Lastly I added the Happy Easter die cut sentiment to the card.  This card is so adorable and I was amazed at how quickly it came together. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time...Happy Crafting!

Quick Cards
by Candice Crawford


Hello crafty friends, Happy Friday! 

Are you needing to replenish your card stash? Do you need to make a few cards, but are pressed for time?  Then do I have a treat for you.  Simply run to your washi tape collection and roll out that washi onto some white card stock.  


For these cards today I am using a larger roll of washi tape from Poppystamps. Unfortunately this washi tape has now retired, but any large size washi tape will work for this project. 

After rolling your washi tape onto some card stock, trim the card stock panels to any size you desire to fit your A2 size card base.


For the first two cards, I cut my washi tape panels into two separate pieces. One piece measured 2.75 x 5.5 and adhered the panel onto my A2 card base horizontally with a thin strip of gold card stock to cover the seam.

The second card I used the full 4.25 x 5.5 washi tape panel and adhered it to my card base with some liquid adhesive.  I then took the scraps of the panel and fussy cut a few flower images from the washi tape design to use as my focal image on my 3.5 x 4.75 card front panel. 

I then stamped the sentiments from the Peony Garden Corner stamp set in Versa Fine Onyx black ink. 


For this next card, the washi tape panel was cut to 1.5 x 5.5 and adhered to the card base that included the Lattice Plate background. I added another thin strip of gold card stock to cover the seam between the washi tape and the lattice background. 

For the focal image, I layered together a large and medium size heart die cut onto the card with some foam tape.  The larger heart was cut from vellum and the medium size heart was cut with some pink card stock from my stash. Then lastly stamped with a sentiment from the Peony Garden stamp set. 


And there you have 3 quick and easy cards that can be massed produced to replenish your stash.  I hope you've enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time... Happy Crafting!

Peony Garden Corner
by Candice Crawford


Hi there crafty friends, Candice here! 

Today I am back on the blog to share another spring themed card using the Peony Garden Corner stamp and die set from Memory Box. This large 6x8 stamp set comes with a large flower image that fits perfectly in the corner of an A2 size card. 


To make this card, I die cut the background images with the Lattice Plate with some cream colored card stock. Then I die cut the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame from some gold card stock. I adhered the frame and the lattice background panel to an A2 cream colored card base. 


Next I stamped the Peony Corner stamp with Versamark ink and heat set it with some gold embossing powder. Then used the coordinating die from the set to cut out the flowers. 


Next I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in 2 shades of pink and 2 shades of green to color in the image. I also used my water brush pen to distribute the color in various areas of the petals and leaves to create depth and dimension for the watercolor look. I adhered the flowers to the left corner of the card with some foam tape. 


Lastly I stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday onto a strip of black card stock in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with some white detailed embossing powder. I then cut the sentiment into two strips and adhered it to my card with foam tape. 

Very stunning. I hope you've enjoyed this project share and found inspiration.

Until next time....Happy Crafting!

Fern and Daisy
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends, hope you all are enjoying your day. 

Have you seen the new release from Poppystamps? Today, I am featured on the blog showcasing the new Fern and Daisy Pop-Up Easel set. This die set makes the most adorable easel card. But it also makes a wonderful card front focal image for regular A2 size cards as shown in my project today. 


To get started, you will first need to die cut the background panel from a piece of white card stock and the oval fern frame from a piece of green colored card stock. I am using a sage colored card stock from the new 6x6 Lush Green collection paper pack called Lush Green from Memory Box. 

Next with your Alcohol Markers in shades of green, add some depth and dimension shadows to the leaf images of the fern frame. For some of the fern pieces I colored them in a deeper shade of green for added interest. Then adhere the fern frame to the white background panel with some liquid adhesive.


Next, die cut an oval shape from both a piece of white card stock and gold card stock using the oval die that comes in the set. Because the oval die cut provides raised  outline trim on the edge, I used my scissors to trim about 1/8 of an inch off of the white oval piece following this outline. I then sponged on some tumble glass Distress Oxide ink to the center and stamped my sentiment in Versa fine Onyx Black ink. The sentiment comes from the new Diamond Sentiment stamp set. 


Next I die cut the white daisy flower images from scraps of white card stock from my stash. I added Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink to the flower petals along with a dollop of  Black Nuvo drops to each of the flower centers. I popped some of the flower images up on to the Fern frame with some dimensional foam tape. I also die cut 3 butterfly images and coordinating wings from the die set with  some gold card stock. Two of the butterfly images were popped up with foam tape. 


Lastly I adhered the decorated panel to a 4.0 x 5.25 piece of yellow card stock then glued the  entire card front to an A2 size white notecard.


This card is absolutely stunning. I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and tutorial.  Until next time....happy crafting.

Graceful Heart Frame
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends! Candice here, back on the blog to share another Valentine's Day card. 

Today's project uses the Graceful Heart Frame that was released last year and still available for purchase. This die is so stunning and is perfect for doing a paper piecing technique. 


To get started, you will need to first die cut the Heart Frame image 3 times using Metallic Gold, Red Glitter, and Dark Green cardstock. Next, you will remove the gold inside pieces of the image from the frame and simply adhere the frame to your white A2 card base with some liquid adhesive.

If you own Stick It adhesive, you could apply the Stick It to each of the sheets of cardstock, before die cutting the frame multiple times.  This would allow for the frame and each of the inside pieces to become a sticker and make it easier to paper piece the card together. 


Next you will adhere the coordinating red glitter heart and large leaf pieces into the gold frame outline using some liquid adhesive. Once all of the glitter pieces are adhered. You will then adhere the coordinating green cardstock pieces for the smaller leaf images into the gold frame. 


Lastly you will stamp the sentiment Happy Valentine's Day from the Valentine's Fun stamp set in Versafine Onxy Black ink and your card is done. Simple, quick and stunning! If you are intending to make several Valentines' Day cards this season, this design can be mass produced. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time....Happy Crafting!

Big Hedgehog
by Candice Crawford


Hi there crafty friends, hope you are all having a good week. Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. Have you started on your Valentine's Day cards? If  not, today's project share may be the perfect inspiration to get you in the craft room to make a card or two. 


To create this card, I began with creating my background image. I stenciled red hearts onto a piece of 5 x 7 inch white cardstock with the Memory Box Drifting Hearts Stencil and some Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink. 


Next I cut the stenciled background with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die. Then adhered both the frame and the inside piece to a 4.25 x 5.5 top folding black note card with some liquid adhesive. 


Then I die cut the Big Hedgehog Left and Big Hedgehog Right images from both a kraft and dark chocolate colored cardstock. I removed the hedgehog's main from the kraft die cut piece by fussy cutting the image with my paper snips. Then adhered the fussy cut kraft image onto the dark chocolate image with some liquid adhesive. 

Next I die cut a large heart image from some vellum cardstock, then adhered the heart and both paper pieced hedgehogs onto the stenciled heart background with some foam tape. Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock with some white embossing powder. I then attached the sentiment strip to card with some foam tape. 


And there you have it, your card is done! I hope you enjoyed today's project share and found inspiration to make your own Valentine's Day cards. Until next time, happy crafting!
