Hello. I hope you’re enjoying the long weekend. I love Easter. It’s probably one of my favourite holidays. Easter is like a new beginning.
Today’s card is for Impression Obsession’s Outside of the Box challenge. Using stencils is so popular and new to me, so my “outside the box” is adding stencils to my card. I love how this turned out. The technique I used is from the Technique Junkie Newsletter and is called “Shaped Stencils” and is from the April 2014 issue.
I used the Love Birds Die DIE058-N. I cut the die out twice, once in green and once in red and cut the birds off and added the red birds.
Enjoy your Easter weekend.
Die: Impression Obsession; Stencil: Dreamweaver; Sentiment: Stampn’ Up!
Happy Easter. I hope you enjoy your long weekend with friends and family.
This style of card is called the Z Fold and is from the Fancy Folds & Motion Paper Crafts CD from the Technique Junkie Newsletter. You can order the CD from my blog. Simply click the drop-down menu on the upper right side of my blog.
Thank you for stopping by!
Hello folks! Have you made your Easter cards yet? I’m all caught up. Whew.
My technique uses the Scored Diamonds technique from the Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts CD from the Technique Junkie Newsletter. You can order your CD by clicking on the upper right bar on my blog. There is a drop down window for you to choose which CD you would like to purchase.
Rather than stamp a background I took the liberty of using designer paper from Doodlebug “Take Note.”
Stamps: La La Land Crafts
Hi folks! Are you having a good day? I hope you are.
I had a birthday card to make and couldn’t decide what to do that was unique, so when I saw this card from my blogging friend, Viv, I knew that was the style of card I wanted to make. As you can see, I was inspired by the way Viv added some ribbon, so I did the same.
This card is also for this week’s technique challenge at Splitcoaststampers. The challenge is to add dots and the technique is called Pointilism.
My Stamping Bella image was coloured with Copics. My designer paper is an old 6 x 6 pad from BasicGrey. I’m a designer paper junkie, are you?
I just love easel cards. Don’t you? My background uses the Scored Diamonds technique from the Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts CD from the Technique Junkie Newsletter, which you can order direct from my website. Simply click on the upper right bar.

Hello folks. I created another Clean and Simple card in two colours. My favourite is the orange. What colour is your favourite?
Coloured with Copic markers.

I’m on a roll with La La Land stamps. How can one resist their cuteness–not me. I used Copics to colour the bunnies. My card style is called the Flap Fold and is from the Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts CD from the Technique Junkie Newsletter, which can be ordered through my blog on the upper right side bar. Be patient with me as you’ll be seeing more of these bunnies over the next little while.
I haven’t been feeling well lately, and thought I’d make some cards to send to some of my friends and family.
My card is Clean and Simple, and so different for me, and I quite like the results. I hope you do too. Image is coloured with Copic markers.

Hi folks. Spring is around the corner, much to all our relief. I know I’m not the only one complaining about this winter. Boy has it been bad all over.
The April issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter is out and this is one of my cards that is in the issue. It is called Aged Text Boards, and it is a favourite technique of mine.
Stamp: Impression Obsession
