Thankful for you
by Tina Wilstrup


Hello everyone! I hope you are all safe and well. Here in Denmark we have now re-opened pretty much everything, which is a bit worrying. I'm glad schools only have a few weeks left before summer break, although the weather is more autumn like than summer. With my card today I'm trying to rectify that and bring you summer vibes.

I started by ink blending Antique linen distress ink through the Romantic Blooms stencil.

I then colored in the areas of flower petals with light yellow, light and dark pink Arteza markers and blended them with a waterbrush. I did the same with the leaves using 2 dusty green markers.

When I was done with my watercoloring I wanted to frame the image. This is when I realized my card stock was larger than an A2 panel. But this actually worked out great with this frame set. I cut the frame and the Friend word from glitter cardstock.

I added sparkle with a spectrum noir sparkle pen.

I adhered the frame and friend word, and stamped a sentiment.

I hope this cheared you up! Thanks for stopping by. I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment. Happy crafting!

Thinking of You
by Marybeth Lopez



Hello crafty friends! Marybeth here today with a : Thinking of you card , almost anyone would love a thinking of you card during these difficult and crazy times.


I used memoryBox : Birthday Rose Corner stamp and die set  for my card. I placed the large stamp as shown above . After I stamped my image I placed  the die on the image as shown below.  This was going to be the top of my card and last minute I placed it on the lower portion of my card.




I cut two layers one of the image above and one of craft foam to give the rose dimension.


I used  Zig brush pens to color in the image but didn't want to use water so I first colored little sections at a time with the shimmer pen then blended the color on top, love how it turned out and I didn't use watercolor cardstock.


The base panel  is patterned paper from memory Box , I used the striped paper. The sentiment is from Poppystamps called : Friendship and Kindness.


Thank you for the visit today. Hope you find some time to craft this weekend.

 I just have to say thank you to PATRICIA HOWARTH for always leaving such kind and thoughtful comments on ... my /our...  Poppystamps post. Your kindness is heartwarming. ( maybe its your job :) thank you and all who take the time to comment. ( I know I am the worst at leaving comments on blogs, but a bit better on Instagram

God bless and take care.




Long time, no see
by Tina Wilstrup


Hello everyone! Hope you are all well. Today I wanted to play with a few pun sentiments and a rainbow.


I die cut the giraffe 5 times from white cardstock, and cut 5 strips of patterned paper.


I adhered the strips to my A2 sized card base and colored the 5 giraffes with Copics in darker, coordinating colors.


From the same patterned paper I then cut 5 labels to fit my sentiements.


I used the same darkest marker to color the edge of the labels to make them stand out. For this label I even snipped the stamp in 2. I find it easier than to mask the stamp. That way I always end up with ink in wrong places. And I can easily place them together if I want to stamp them as intended later.


I then adhered the giraffes and popped up the labels. And then I thought it was kind of missing something, yet I didn't want to add more dimension or glitter. I know, weird right? Corona isolation must have gotten the better of me, LOL. Anyway, I added a fine black line all around the base, repeating 3 times. I also added a few "stars". I guess I had to have some "sparkle", after all.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great crafty day!

Washi Frame
by Sue McRae


Hello crafty friends, Sue here with a very quick and simple card idea. If you need a card in a hurry, this project is for you!


I took some of the Memory Box wide Washi Tape and covered an A2 sized card panel with each design of washi tape. These tapes are so pretty with the floral and greenery designs! Then all you have to do is pick a die to cut out from these washi panels. I chose the Adriana Square Frame and die cut it from each of the washi panels to see what kind of look I could get. In the end I chose the panel with the Sunset Blush Washi because I liked the random sprinkling of colours throughout and all the white space it still left on the frame. It reminded me of loose watercolouring. The good think is, I still have the other frames to quickly make another card when needed.


Since the Adriana Frame is square I decided to go for a square card. I cut a piece of blue striped patterned paper from the Springtime Bouquet Paper Pad to 4.25" square and adhered the frame ontop.


I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in the centre of the frame and mounted this piece with foam tape and attached it to a 4.5" square card base.


To finish off the card I added a few gems for some sparkle. That's it and the card is complete!


I hope this gives you some ideas on using your washi tape with your dies to make quick and easy cards. 

Have a happy and safe crafty week!

Easy Flip Flop Card by Jennifer Svare


Hello!  Today I'm excited to share a unique flip-flop card idea.  It's got a full front panel, and the front floral "flips" to reveal the sentiment when the card is pulled.  The video below shows this card in action.


The Oval Fold Frame die makes this type of card very simple to make.  Again, the video will show exact measurements and instructions, but it doesn't take long at all!  I used the inner oval nesting die that comes with the Oval Fold Frame to create the base for the front. The flowers came from the beautiful Adriana Oval Frame for a white-on-white floral background texture.

I used the label from the Adriana Pop Easel Set to create a vase for this card.  I die cut it out of watercolor paper, and then watercolored some grays to create a cement look.  The Floral Cluster pieces were also cut and watercolored, along with Garden Leaves and Berries for the greenery.  Distress Oxide inks were used to create a colorful background.

Flip Flop Sentiment

When the card is pulled, the floral vase "flips" to reveal the sentiment.  For this card, I used a sentiment from the fun Birthday Blowout clear stamp set.  


The back of the card has a little floral blossom that was left over, and I just love the patterned paper from Memory Box's Springtime Bouquet 6x6 paper pad.  I hope you give this a try - it is a really fun card to make!  Thank you for stopping by today!
