Thank You Friend

Hello, everyone! Rachel here again with another clean and simple card.


I started this card by creating the card base. I knew that I wanted to color my rose in yellow, so I chose a yellow card stock and then used my Geometric embossing folder to give it some fun texture. I set that aside and cut out a Stitched Hexagon from some white cardstock. I used my MISTI to help me stamp my floral image on top of the hexagon and then used my Copics to color it in.

Yellows - Y08, Y04, Y00, and Y000
Greens - YG17, YG13, and YG01
Gray Halo - C3, C1, and C00
Orange/Brown centers - YR27, YR24, YR21

I used foam tape to adhere my hexagon to the embossed base. (Just a note, it can be difficult to adhere anything to an embossed piece, but I find that foam tape and double-sided tape are wonderful for this!) Then I turned to my sentiment. I cut a banner from a piece of black cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I used foam tape on the sides that do not overlap my hexagon and used multi-medium matte adhesive to adhere the flaps and the portion that overlaps my hexagon. (That was to keep the banner flat since the hexagon is already popped up with its own foam tape.)

That's it! I hope you enjoyed my card today and thanks for stopping by!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…

Happy Owl-idays!

Hello, everyone! Rachel here with you today!

I'm loving the cute little critters that are going to be coming up in a new release and I think you're going to love them, too. I have a clean and simple creation using a new owl image for you today.


I started my card by masking off a small strip on the right hand side of the card and then blending purple and pink inks into the strip to create an ombre effect. After it had dried, I used a stencil and some texture paste to create my falling snow. I carefully removed my masking paper and then let the texture paste dry.

While I waited, I colored my little owl image and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut him out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I hate fussy cutting?) When I was sure the card was dry, I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment and stamped it in a bold, black ink. I used some foam tape to adhere my little own beside my sentiment and my card was done!

Thanks for joining me today!
