Bootiful Tulips Crafting Dies

For my first card I started with a white card base and added a stencilled panel on top that I inked with wild honey distress oxide ink as well as a sentiment heat embossed on it.

On top of this I added a scalloped frame die cut that I attached with foam tape.

I finished the card with the bootiful tulip stamp that I attached with liquid glue.

For my second card I started with a white card base. I die cut 3 smaller pierced rectangle panels. For two of the panels I used seedless preserves to ink the panels. One I inked the entire panel, the other I used a polka dot stencil.

The last panel I left white and stamped the sentiment that came with the bootiful tulips set.

I finished the card with bootiful tulip propped up on foam tape.

Anemone Stamp Set

TECHNIQUE TUESDAY

For both cards I used stencilled backgrounds.

For the hearts I masked off a strip of the card panel and stencilled inside that section. I added some white paint splatters and perfect pearls in a shimmery gold tone over top of the stencilled section. I pulled out a jar of prills in a yellow colour and added to the center of the flower.

The blue card I glued on heart embellishments following the stencil pattern, added a circle die cut to the center of the card for an area to place the sentiment.

Both cards I coloured the anemones and leaves with Copics and attached with foam tape.

The miss you card was created on a stencilled panel added on top of a white card base. A simple white strip was added down the side with the crocus placed on top with foam tape. The Miss you sentiment was cut from Kraft Card Stock.

The other card was made with a large scalloped rectangle with a smaller stencilled one placed on top and added to a white card base. Another scalloped rectangle was added on a diagonal with the crocus placed inside. I die cut the Thank you after blending some soft pink ink and glued off to the side.

Technique Tuesday February Animal House Release


This month Technique Tuesdays animal house release is full of Koala cuteness. I have two cards I’m sharing today using these Australian cuties.

Both cards were started with stencilled leafy patterns on white card stock. I kept the colour palette the same for both in soft organic greens using bundled sage oxide inks. One was placed on a green panel, a sentiment trimmed down to fit the card and mom and baby placed off to the side of a leafy wreath.

The other card was made very similar with a wreath centre. I used the new wrapped bouquet and trimmed off the bottom portion and kept the foliage. I tucked the single Koala behind and placed some falling leaves around the card. I added a fussy cut sentiment off to the side to complete my card.

Hummingbirds

I’m so excited about this months anima house release from Technique Tuesday. There is 2 gorgeous hummingbirds and a beautiful flower along with some lovely sentiments in this set! I was so excited to get the chance to play with them.

I have two cards I’m sharing today.

The hummingbirds were coloured in copics and die cut using the matching die.

I did some simple layering using some background die cuts keeping both cards with subtle backgrounds to focus on the pretty hummingbirds! (My favourite is the one with the pretty tail)

The green card was blended in oxide inks in the colours mowed lawn and twisted Citron and once dry I stamped the pretty flower around the panel and heat embossed in white. A small scalloped Rectangle was added to the center with a stencil pattern in clear glitter on it (hard to see in photos)

I finished the card with a heart die cut with the sentiment stamped in the center and attached it with foam tape as well as the hummingbirds.

The other card I did some stamping on a stitched rectangle panel with the flower stamp in the set and used pencil crayons to colour the flowers in. I die cut a heart from the centre and backed it with a lattice type panel. A sentiment was stamped on top and everything was attached to a white card base and pink panel.

I hope you enjoyed my cards today!
