Thank You Card Set
by Nancy Penir

February brings the hope of Spring, and I'm here today with some ideas for easy, fun stamping.

I love doing cards in multiples, especially for giving gifts. A set of thank you cards (A1 size) is the perfect appreciation to give a friend. Or a neighbor who fed the cats while you were away?

I selected one of my favorite Poppy stamp sets, Little Kindnesses, and a Poppy tag die, marking off the die, lightly with a pencil. Here's where the fun starts. Using my Misti, each card is placed and stamped one after another, in an assembly line.

Here's a look at all the elements before the card is assembled. Each tag is inked a different color, 6 total.

I placed my tag in the Misti for placement of the bee trail as well.

The large die cut flower is copic colored, coordinated with the tag, and adhered to the tag. If you look closely, you can see I glued only the center of the flower so I could curl up the petals slightly. Finishing touches include the script die cut and some Nuvo drops.

Don't forget the envelopes! So easy to decorate them with the Misti too!

Packaged together with a ribbon, a sweet way to say, 'thank you'. And great therapy for a cold winter's afternoon. How nice to have several of these sets on hand, ready to go.

I hope this post today brought you a bit of Spring sunshine. And I hope you're feeling crafty, no matter the temp outside!

I Otter Love Ya
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5994-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so glad you could join us today! These sweet little otters are swimming by to wish us all a very Happy Valentine's Day! I think this Whittle Otter  is my very favorite from our entire new release! I started out with a blended ink background made from distressed oxide inks, then splattered with water to create these swirling droplets of color. You can either imagine the otters floating by on their backs, or swimming to to the surface with goodies in their paws. If you are a fan the sea otters of the West Coast, or the sleek River Otters that we have here in Florida, then you are going to love these cuties!

One otter is holding the small Whittle Heart, and one otter is holding the tops from the Dandelion Stem, which look like tiny, artsy sea urchins! Perhaps it is a gift for his sweet Valentine?

Thank you all so much for dropping by today!

Valentine Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0071

Hello, Poppy Peeps! Didn't you just love all the new Valentine Stamps and dies showcased these past two weeks? I have a Valentine card for you using some of the new release. Come along and take a look.

DSC_0068_wm

Hearts are the image of love and Valentines. And Poppy has a new die called Wavy Heart I'm lovin'!

You'll be happy to know Wavy Heart fits perfectly inside the new Pinpoint Hearts dies.

DSC_0001

Like I said, a perfect fit!

DSC_0070

I gave my background some glam with the heart stencil that comes with Sidekick frame. Not too much, just some subtle heart texture. And sponge inked the wavy heart with Oxide pinks, keeping all the die cut pieces in place.

My die cut sentiment, from Doodle Happy Valentines Day is cut twice, once from silver and then backed with black. Love to back my die cut sentiments, really makes them stand out.

DSC_0007

Hope you're inspired today, and hope I got some creative juices flowing! Happy Crafting, all!

Northern Holiday
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_5861-wm

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could drop by for a visit! Snowy December is certainly here, so today I am sharing a snowy winter scene! Take a look at this Northern Holiday!

IMG_5859-wm

I started by creating a background of blended distress oxide inks spritzed with water for a soft, fuzzy look. I have fallen in love with our collection of whittle animals, so I used this adorable Whittle Fox against the soft white of thicker watercolor paper. I think he really stands out. Add a few stars from the All Star Collage and you have a sweet winter scene.

Thanks so much for joining us today!
