Koala Friends | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Crafty Friends.

Today I have a Valentine’s Day card to share, but before I share my card, I want to share some exciting news.  I’m officially part of the Pretty Pink Posh design team. Yay!! Be sure to stay tuned for more card inspiration from me using Pretty Pink Posh products.

For my card, I used the Koala Friends stamp set and Heart Vines background die. I love all of the stitching detail in the die. There is stitching around the entire frame, the vines, and the heart. I die cut the die from pink cardstock and green cardstock and paper pieced the two together.

Ombre Background on Cards
Background Dies, Scrapbook.com, Stencil

Quick and Easy Cards with Scrapbook.com

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing some quick and easy cards using some products from Scrapbook.com. I’ll be using a stencil, paper pads, dies, and ephemera to make quick cards. I will also show you how to make an ombre background for a card using the the Scrapbook.com Roses paper pad. This paper pad is full of beautiful pinks, reds, and corals.

Check out my YouTube video to see how I made my cards.

For this card, I used the Scrapbook.com Metallic Rose Gold ink on the Scrapbook.com Rose Bloom stencil. The ink pad matches perfectly with the Scrapbook.com Roses cardstock which I used for my card layer. I added Scrapbook.com Silver Pops of Color to the center of the roses. Finally, I added the Scrapbook.com Love word die to finish the card.

For my next set of cards, I used the Waffle Flower Angled Stripe Panel Die to create ombre backgrounds for my cards. The Roses cardstock from Scrapbook.com was perfect to create an ombre of pinks and reds. Just by adding a word die and/or ephemera, you can make a quick card.

Pink and Main Butterfly Cards - Dearest Friend
Background Dies, butterfly, Pink and Main, Slimline Card

Butterfly Cards – Pink and Main

Hello! Today on my blog I’m sharing a four butterfly cards that I created using some products from Pink and Main. I used the Dearest Friend stamp set, Bold Butterfly Cover Dies, and the Plaid Cover Dies. I love the large size of the beautiful butterfly in the stamp set and the cover die set. I’ll show you more about these products and how I made each of these cards in my YouTube video.

Pink and Main Butterfly Cards - Dearest Friend

To see how I made these cards, watch my tutorial here:

For my first card, I created a dimensional card by coloring the butterfly twice. The first time, I colored it on a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ inch panel cut with Bristol Smooth Cardstock. The second time, I colored it, I fussy cut it out, and then layered it on top of the card panel to create a beautiful dimensional look.

For my next card, I colored the butterfly image and fussy cut it out and then layered it on the Plaid Cover Die Panels. These cover dies come in two panels – A and B. The panel die can be used separately or used together to create a layered look.

My next card is a slimline card.  I created a watercolor background and then stamped the butterfly image onto the background using Versamark ink. I sprinkled white embossing power over the top and heat set it.

For my final card, I used the Bold Butterfly Cover Dies — Panels A, B, and C — to create a layered look for my butterfly. You can achieve a beautiful colorful butterfly without any coloring just by using these panel dies as well as different color cardstock.

Friendship Card

Friendship Card

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a friendship card that I made using the Friends background die from The Stamps of Life. I love this background die because it’s the centerpiece of the card. You don’t even need to include a stamp or diecut image on the card front, but I did use one here. I used the FingerPrints2Stamp die set and included a dog and cat diecut in the bottom corner of the card. I chose these diecuts because they were small enough and didn’t take away from the beautiful background.

  1. Friends Background Die
