Merry Christmas, Deer!

December 8, 2021

One of our favorite paper crafting techniques is die cutting. We simply find the process of cutting and gluing small pieces of paper together to create something beautiful so relaxing and enjoyable.  Our card project today was created mostly with die cuts – there was very little stamping involved. We are pleased with how it turned out and hope you think so too! Focal Point: The deer was…

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. Focal Point: Using the solid maple leaf die, cut one leaf from a Yupo…

Diecut Inlay Leaves

October 25, 2021

Hello Friends! Have you ever tried the diecut inlay technique? It’s really just a fancy name for paper piecing, but we find it relaxing and enjoyable – somewhat like putting a jigsaw puzzle together. 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…

Puppy Angel

October 2, 2021

There is no doubt that sympathy cards are the hardest types of cards to make. Unless, of course, you need to make a pet sympathy card. Those are absolutely THE WORST!  A dear friend recently lost their 15-year old furry family member. We envisioned a puppy angel for this card so we started hunting through our stash and found the perfect puppy image and a set of wings…

Celebrate with Plants!

September 26, 2021

We have a plant-loving family member who celebrated a big milestone birthday this month. We felt this was the perfect opportunity to break out the die sets we have recently acquired that create adorable house plants. It was so much fun to build these adorable pots of greenery. Focal Point: Various plants and pots were diecut using various green, brown and tan scraps of cardstock. We enhanced the…

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.…

That’s how we felt about the Capturing Summer Collection from The Greetery and today we are sharing a card we made using many of the products from this collection. Is there any better setting for a welcome home card than a rocking…

Happy BEERthday

January 19, 2021

Hello and welcome!  We are so grateful for your visit. Today we are sharing a masculine birthday card.  Masculine cards always seem to be more challenging for us to create, but we knew that the recipient of this card is a beer-lover, so we used that information as the starting point for our design.  We searched through our stash to see if we had anything that we could…
