Maker's Movement - Hello Spring Slimline Card

 Hello, my friends!


I'm back today to share a fun new card for Maker's Movement
I'm excited to share some fabulous dies from the most recent release!

I used my wonderful Crossover II Machine for all my die-cutting on this project.

I've also used:



and Hello Spring Stamp and Die Set.
(this one is on sale now)

I've got to tell you that this Slimline Essentials Die Set is fantastic!
It includes a total of  17 pieces, which makes for a multitude of creative possibilities.

I know that Spring officially arrived some time ago
but we had snow again this week. 

Here's my card:


Since I was making a Spring themed card,
I just had to include the adorable little bird stamp/die,
along with a flower, from the Hello Spring set.
I thought it was funny that I had cut and arranged the "Hello Spring" on my card
before I realized the bird came from a set of the same name. ;o)


Here's a closer look at the new Alphabet Die Set.
Each letter is two pieces, and so much fun to play with!


I kept this card nice and flat for easy mailing.
The dies make it so easy to cut a variety of layers,
 and add fun texture and interest.

Scrappy Tails Crafts - Daisy Card

Happy Wednesday, my friends!

It's time for a new project share for Scrappy Tails Crafts!  

This was so much fun to put together!
It's also a great reminder that soon our garden will be full of the real thing! 

For my project today I have combined some new release products,
along with some older dies from the shop.

I've used:

Whimsical Layering Daisies Metal Dies,

Oopsy Daisy Stamp Set,

and Slimline Shadow Box Die.

Here's my card:


This Daisy die set is fabulous!
I love to make my own flowers,
and this set is full of so many wonderful daisy shapes and sizes.
I die-cut a whole pile of flowers, 
and then just had fun layering and shaping them. 
 

 The card base, the green background, and the gold bracket shape,
were all cut using layers from the Slimline Shadow Box Die.


Then I stamped this great sentiment from the Oopsy Daisy Stamp Set,
punched it out and adhered it in place with foam tape.

There is so much lovely dimension on this card!
This combination of stamps and dies make it easy to put together!

Maker's Movement - Bookmark Card

 Hello, my friends!


I'm back today to share a fun project for Maker's Movement
I've made a bookmark card!
It's a card with a removeable bookmark.
I'm actually going to laminate the bookmark,
but I decided to wait until after taking the photos.
It's easier without the glare! ;o)

I used my wonderful Crossover II Machine for all my die-cutting on this project.

I've also used:



Here's my card:


Isn't this little mushroom fella adorable reading his book?
...I think it's a fella...lol
The Not Mush to Say Stamp and Die Set has two cute mushrooms,
some great sentiments, and some extras.
As soon as I decided on this image and sentiment,
I knew I had to make a bookmark.


I pulled this book paper out of my stash,
and cut my bookmark base from a matching paper.
The largest of the Nested Round Tags Die Set makes a great bookmark.
I created my A2 card, and added a fussy cut band to hold the bookmark.
I say fussy cut because I cut it out to match the paper under it.
To finish it off, I added a ribbon to the top of the bookmark,
and then I added the heart to the band.

Here's a closer look:


This is a really fun stamp set to play with!
Some great creative possibilities for a variety of occasions!

Scrappy Tails Crafts - Easter Greetings!

 Happy Wednesday, my friends!

I'm back with a new project share for Scrappy Tails Crafts

Today I am featuring:

 Easter Lilies Stamp Set

and a Slimline Everyday Borders Die.

Here's my Easter card:


This Easter Lilies Stamp Set is so lovely!
I began with stamping/colouring the flower bouquet.
Then I fussy cut it out...because I love to do that. 
for those that don't like fussy cutting as much as I do.



I created an A2 tent-fold card base from white cardstock.
I added the striped background paper. 
To add some interest to the next layer, 
I used the curvy border die from the Slimline Everyday Borders Die.
Then I added an oval frame with dies from my stash.
The floral image was adhered in place with foam tape.


Finally, I added some glitter glue to the flowers for some sparkle.
To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment and some flowers inside the card!
