Do you like free stuff? I do! Especially when it’s something related to crafting.

Links to the free files are at the end of the post. This file is called Floral Sampler. Just type “digital” into the search box and you can see all the digital bundles that are available
I am totally addicted to Lawn Fawn’s Flippin’ Awesome Dies. I had to make a considerable effort a couple of days ago to stop making waterfall cards and do something else. Years ago, I made several of these cards without the dies. You can find many videos on YouTube showing you how to make them. They are not that hard to make but this die set is a game changer for me. I used the Critter Concert stamp set for the first card and then decided to use pattern paper (of which I have tons) to make the process go even faster.
Hello! After a major creative crisis and a few vinyl projects for friends, I am back with two mermaid scale cards using glitter adhesive vinyl. Previously, I had only used vinyl to decorate glasses or metal mugs but one day I thought that vinyl would be a great material to use on cards when watercoloring. The adhesive on the vinyl is super strong and it can be cut with a Silhouette Cameo or other die cutting machine (it cuts like butter so well!) or you could also cut it with dies and even punches.
Hello! Today’s card uses a die set that was released with Valentine’s Day in mind, paired with a balloon stamp and die set to make a tall birthday card that fits into a standard #10 business envelope. All stamps and dies are from Concord & 9th.
I have been on a bit of a roll with Pretty Pink Posh products lately. I originally made some Valentine’s Day treat bags with the Floral Hearts stamps and dies. I didn’t get the pictures up before Valentine’s so I didn’t create a post for them. I’m sharing a picture below. My mom’s birthday is coming up and Mother’s Day will be here in a hurry so this idea of the three hearts had been floating around in my head.
Have you ever used colored pencils and gamsol? Using them really is an easy way to color in images and get a nice smooth result. Today I used Prismacolor pencils (you could use any brand of quality pencils) and gamsol to color the images from Pretty Pink Posh’s Crocus Flowers stamp set. I used the Crocus Flowers dies to cut out all the images for these two very similar cards. I diecut the sentiments with the Happy Birthday Script die, also from Pretty Pink Posh.
Last month I fell in love with Pretty Pink Posh’s January 2019 Release. I had to have it, so I bought the entire release (*happy dance*). For today’s card and video I used the Pinata Party stamps and coordinating dies.
Today I am sharing two cards for Valentine’s Day. One is very simple to make and the other one is a little stepped up. Both are gorgeous with the help of some gold embossed paper.
Here is my first Valentine’s Day card of 2019. I used Concord and 9th‘s Little Love Tags BUNDLE. It is primarily a tag set but you can definitely use it to make cards. I used the XO heart stamp to create a circle, alternating ink colors for interest. I stamped the lines stamp twice using my Mini MISTI onto vellum using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment, which I trimmed with my paper trimmer, and the heart with lines through it, which I colored with three Copic markers to create an ombre effect. I die cut the heart using the dies from the bundle.
In my previous post I used this same Ruffled Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle from Altenew without the dies. For today’s card, I used the dies for the flower clusters on the front of the card and to create a pop-up on the inside of the card.
