Thanks | My Favorite Things Harmonious Hibiscus

Hi there, I hope you’re having a nice day and are keeping safe and healthy!

Today I have a card that almost didn’t turn into a card. Last weekend, I played with different color combinations that included the new Crackling Campfire Distress Oxide ink and I didn’t quite achieve the contrast I was hoping for at the top of this card, so I set the panel aside. But after a week of slowly forgetting what my expectations had been, I realized that I liked it much more than I did last week 🙂

Thanks | Clean and Simple Two-For-One

20200601_175451

Hi there, today I have ultra clean and simple two-for-one cards using the Framed Thanks die from Altenew.

I started with a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock that was just a bit larger than the die.  Using foam blending tools, I blended Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, and Peacock Feathers over the panel.

When the panel was dry, I die cut it with the Framed Thanks die.  This left me with a very fine ink-blended frame, and larger ink-blended fall-out pieces.  I also die cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with the die, leaving me with a white frame and white fall-out pieces.

I pieced the white fall-out pieces into the ink-blended frame and then used Scotch tape on the backside to hold the pieces together.  Then I adhered this combined piece to another piece of white cardstock that I die cut using the largest frame from the Rounded Rectangles Die set.  The largest die from that set happens to be the exact same size as the Framed Thanks die!  To finish my uber white card, I backed the frame with foam tape and adhered it to an A2 card base.

For the next card, I followed the same process, this time piecing in the colorful fall-out pieces into the white frame.

Thank you so much for coming by!

Thank You | Waffle Flower February Release

Hi there, I hope you’re having a great weekend!

I have another card today using the new Potted Lily stamp set from the Waffle Flower Crafts February release.  This time, I went for a bit of no-line watercolor which, I’ll be honest, makes me a little nervous.  But, the more I practice this technique, the better I feel about it 🙂

Hi there, I hope you’re enjoying your day!

Here’s a card I shared a few days ago over on Instagram that uses some Chroma Glaze pastes from Brutus Monroe that a crafty friend sent to me.  These pastes come in all sorts of sorbet colors and look so creamy in their little jars that they remind me of pudding.  Scroll to the bottom for a video clip of the process!
