My lovely friend and paper artist, Lesley Retherford sent this Christmas card to me for the holiday season. I just had to post it. She used the A Muse Studio set Naughty or Nice. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the red cardstock base is stamped in red with the hat stamp and the fur on Santa’s jacket is flocked in white. I LOVE this card. Thanks, Lesley!!
I’m in the mood for love!
I’ve been making Valentine’s Day cards. I “love” this simple layered design. I mounted patterned scrapbook paper over textured cardstock and I used the retired stamp set Heart-itude from The Angel Company.
Here is a cute card if you need some inspiration for some last minute valentines. I used the stamp set Little Darlins from The Angel Company and embossed cardstock from DCWV’s Sweets Stack. I added glitter to the owls’ bellies and the hearts. Simple, cute and so easy to make.
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
My theme this Christmas season, as always, has been “simple and easy” and here is another one…
I designed this Christmas card for my grandmother’s cards this year. Every year I make cards for her to mail to family and friends. She has recently moved to Kentucky and this is my first year of not going to her house for the holiday. She’s only been moved a couple of weeks, but I miss her so much.
I stamped the reindeer and “Merry Christmas” using Burnt Umber on vanilla cardstock. Then before I mounted it to the brown cardstock I distressed the edges, dragged them in Moulin Rouge and curled up 2 opposite corners. I used red Stickles to make his nose shine.
I used the following products from The Angel Company…
Stamp Sets: Reindeer Food, Vintage Santa
Cardstock: Vanilla, Scarlet and Monochromatic Browns
Ink: Burnt Umber and Moulin Rouge Palette Ink
Accessories: Red Stickles and Pop Dots
I made this “sweet” little card using The Angel Company stamp set called Little Cupcake. I ADORE this set! It is full of my favorite images… cupcakes, cakes, and candy. Making this card was simple. It had 8 easy steps…
1. Stamp the cupcake and sentiment in black on a a piece of 2-3/4″ x 2-1/8″ white cardstock. Color in with colored pencils. Use Crystal Lacquer to highlight the cherry.
2. Round corners of white cardstock and drag edges in Iris Palette Ink. Lay aside.
3. Fold a piece of 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ pink paper in half to make the card base.
4. Use a Scallop Edge Punch to make the scallops on the 2″ x 5-1/2″ red cardstock
5. Pierce red cardstock above scallops with needle and adhere to pink cardstock base.
6. Tie brown ribbon around card (see picture).
7. Adhere white cardstock with pop dots to card.
8. Adhere red paper posie with glue dot for a final touch.
8 easy steps but once the card was assembled, it looks complicated. Try this simple sketch today.
