Alcohol Inked Maple Leaf

November 9, 2021

Welcome!  Have you experimented with alcohol inks to make fun colorful backgrounds?  If so, how often do you actually put them to use in your cardmaking? Admittedly, we haven’t mastered that step yet, but we are trying!  Today’s card is the result of using one of those backgrounds and we think it worked perfectly.

Diecut Inlay Leaves

It’s definitely a great way to use up small scraps of cardstock. We have an autumn-themed birthday card to share with you today using this technique. Focal Point: We selected a rust-colored cardstock to…

Pretty Petal Congratulations

September 22, 2021

We think flowers go with any occasion, wouldn’t you agree? Seriously, do you know anyone who hates flowers?? We wanted to send a card to congratulate a fabulous couple on their recent engagement, and decided that flowers were best. We selected a floral stamp set that had a more playful feel and went with a gray monochromatic color scheme to take some of the femininity out of them.…

Big Birthday Hugs

September 13, 2021

Hello friends! What is your favorite color? Although we agree on many things and have similar tastes and styles, naming a favorite color is not one of them. Michele loves all things Teal but Maureen is fond of the warmth and happiness emitted by Yellow. Either way, we are in 100% agreement that both colors can be used to generate pretty cards.  Today we are sharing a card…
