Koalaty Friend

Hello Crafty Friends!

Just stopping in to share a quick and super easy, yet totally cute koala card!!


Koalaty Friend

Koalaty Friend Dies

Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies

Stitched Circle Dies

Stitched Greeting Dies

Be Brave 6×6 Paper Pad

I started by stamping my image with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto 140 lb Mixed Media Paper.

I colored my images using Tim Holtz Distress markers and blended out the color with a water brush. I sped up drying time with a heat tool and added additional shading by going back over it with more coloring.

Then die cut my image out with the matching Koalaty Friend Dies.

I made my card front by die cutting paper from the Be Brave 6×6 Paper Pad with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies.

Then die cut a window from the card front with a circle the Stitched Circle Dies.

On the backside, I used my Mega Runner to apply adhesive around the window and then attached a sheet of light blue tulle to the back.

I attached  my koala to the front of the tulle window, then attached foam tape to the backside.

I cut an oval label using the Stitched Greetings Dies from white cardstock. Then stamped my sentiment using more black ink. Then used more foam tape behind the label to pop it up off the card front.

I attached blue rhinestones onto the tulle and label for a little bling.

Then attached the card front to a A2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) card base made from light blue cardstock.

And here is my finished card…

I hope you enjoyed my card for the day!

Happy card making Everyone!!!



Hello and Happy day cards


today I have for you two cards with super cute stamps from Plane sweet stamp set (+ Plane sweet dies). For background I used Take flight paper pad, white paper is decorated with Distress oxide inks and stencil with clouds. Images are stamped with Versa fine onyx black ink and coloured with Distress markers. These cards are little big smaller because I used for them Stitched Rounded Square Dies (really my favourite dies! MUST HAVES! ). Cards are simply and you can try them too!

Have a nice day

Spring Birds

Good Morning Dear Pink and Main Fans!

It has been gorgeous weather here in South Carolina!  The humidity hasn’t set in yet so we are really enjoying our walks with our big lab Cookie!  There are just dozens of different types of birds here. And as a matter of fact we have a huge Bald Eagle’s nest in our neighbors tree.  Plus another extremely large nest with a Blue Crane.  The Crane has 3 babies and I don’t know how it is staying in the tree it is so gigantic. All of the birds have inspired me to do a card using our set with sweet little birds called Airmail.

Designer Steps:

  1. Use a white A2 card base and cut a slightly smaller piece of light gray card stock.  I scored the gray card stock every 1/2 inch to make it look like siding.
  2. Use a die to cut out the white window and dark gray shutters
  3. Place a piece of designer card stock (Pink and Main Shades of Spring Paper Pad) behind the window and mount to card as shown
  4. Cut out green grass and glue to the bottom of the gray card stock
  5. Stamp the sentiment (Pink and Main Airmail) in black in as shown
  6. Using a punch and the same designer paper you used in the window. Punch out 5 flowers and glue to card front add pearls to the center
  7. Stamp images (Pink and Main Airmail) and color with copic: C0, 1, 3 – YG23, 25 – RV02, 13 – BG70, 72 – Y06
  8. Use coordinating dies (Pink and Main Airmail) and cut out images then glue to card as shown

As Always Thanks for stopping by!




Watercolor Wishes

Hi Everyone!

DT Kimberly here today to share a card using the new Wishes stamp set from the April 2017 release.

 These big, bold sentiments are just amazing and so fun to work with. I enjoy making them the center of the card. For my card today, I used the new Wishes stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on watercolor card stock, stamped again in versamark ink, then shifted the sentiment slightly and stamped again with versamark ink and set it with clear embossing powder. Then I stamped the “On Your Special Day” sentiment also from the set in with versamark and heat embossed it with white powder. Then I added distress ink blended over it in teal to green. Next, I splattered it with shimmer mist to add some sparkle, the I die the panel with the Stitched Rounded Rectangles Die, I also die cut a frame with the same size and the next size up from the Rectangle dies. I inlaid the panel in the frame and added this to the white A2 card base. I finished the card with some star sequins in silver, clear and teal. Then I added some silver crystal Nuvo drops to accent.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
