Simply Stamps | With Sympathy

Hi there, today I have a simple card made with Simply Stamps wood rubber stamps. I love how easy it is to design and upload a design and get it made if you can't find what you want. Anyways, I found what I needed for a wreath and with some simple coloring give it a wow factor.

First I start with kraft cardstock. I stamped the wreath in brown and the sentiment in white craft stamp. With a white pen I colored the roses, leaves and a few dots around the wreath. To give the card some sparkle, I added clear confetti sequins. 

I created a video when I made this card. Hope you enjoy!

Simply Stamps | Pineapple Congrats

Hi friends, today I have a card made with one of the Simply Stamps wood block craft stamps. I absolutely love the pineapple as it is very much versatile and can be paired with any sentiment.

First I began with a kraft cardstock cut to 4.25 in by 5.50 in. Next, and I trimmed 3 pieces of patterned paper to equal lengths.  The pineapple is stamped in brown, once the ink had dried I adhered patterned paper to each other to create a ribbon of sorts. To add some detail I added white twine on the patterned paper before adhering.

The sentiment is die cut from an orange piece of card stock, adhered to the base and then added glossy accents.

Once it all dried, I adhered the whole card to base.

The pineapple is super fun and it seemed perfect for this summer. I made a video of the process of this card.

Simply Stamps| With Sympathy

Hi friends, Crystal here with a sympathy card. For me, sympathy cards are not the most enjoyable kind of card to make, however making them ahead of time can be easier.

I got my inspiration from the beautiful outdoors. The stamps are on the Simply Stamps website under craft stamps.

 To make this card, I began by die cutting a piece of white card stock with a scalloped edge die. The sentiment was stamped in our darkest color used on this card. Next, using a silver ink color, stamp the leaves on the die cut card stock, to get the shadow effect continue stamping without re-inking. Set aside to dry.

Next we will stamp the card base. Start with the darkest color and continue stamping without re-inking. I stamped in a random pattern. Using a lighter green, I did the same step as before. Glitter washi tape was added to the top die cut and using adhered to base with foam adhesive.

To finish, I used a light blue marker and marked around the edges.

Below is a video of how I made this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hero Arts| Peacock Fun

Hello there! I am so excited to be back blogging and card making after taking a few weeks off. We have officially moved into our house after 10 months living in the camper. Then we welcomed our 4th child on April 5th. So between moving, unpacking and caring for a baby there was little time left to make anything. However, I am honored to be part of the new Butterfly Reflection design team and just had to make some time aside to join this group of talented ladies. So, head on over to the BR blog (Click Here) and check out this very colorful card!

Thanks for stopping by!
