Mix and Match Stamp Sets w/Joni ft. Modern Anemones

Hello Everyone, Joni here sharing another take for the Valentines Day card ideas. For this project I used the oldie but goodie Modern Anemones stamp and dies, then combined it using the sentiment from the Biggest Fan stamp set.

To begin, I distressed the white cardstock panel using Distress Oxide Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans. I then splattered the panel with water and gold watercolor paint to create a little texture. Next, I die-cut the center using the decorative die from the Oh My Gostrich! Die. I stamped the card base that shows through the die cut window with the large "love you" sentiment from Biggest Fan.

For the florals, I stamped the anemones and leaves from Modern Anemones on white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating Modern Anemones Die to die cut all of the images.

I adhered the florals at the top and bottom of the card, framing the sentiment, with foam tape for a little more dimension. I also used a few Pretty Pink Posh Ivory Jewels for added interest.

For my next, card I used the same products, but added the Milk and Cookies stamps and dies to the mix. These sets are not something that one might think to used together at first glance.

But, I think they look pretty awesome together! How about you?

I started by distressing white cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks in Abandoned Coral and Worn Lipstick. Again, I splattered the panel with water and watercolor gold paint.

For this card I stamped the large "love you" again from the Biggest Fan then stamped the "we're just better together" sentiment from Milk and Cookies over the middle of it. I adhered the florals from Modern Anemones behind the milk and cookie images. And like the last card, I again used the Pretty Pink Posh Ivory Jewels to finish the card.

I hope you guys enjoyed my take on mixing and matching your sets and gives you some ideas to incorporate into your own work. Make sure to shop your stash and experiment pairing different things together. It can really breathe new life into those older products. And, you may even find something that would look great with a new product that you've had your eye on!

Thanks for joining me today and I hope you have a wonderful week!

Holiday Thank You Cards w/Kara ft. HOLIDAY PRESENTS DIE

Hi Guys! It's that time of year again. The holidays have wrapped up and I always like to take an opportunity to send an extra special "thank you" to a few people. Particularly those family and friends who live far away and took the time to send me a gift in the mail.

These took a little more time to mass produce, but the were still super simple to put together. I just put on a podcast and started cranking my die cut machine. I die cut the Holiday Presents Die from white cardstock six times, from black cardstock six times, and from red, from blue and from green. To save colored cardstock I used small pieces placed only under the present I needed in that color.

I adhered the white gift 'frames' to the white circles cut with the large circle die from the Love Mom Layers Die. That is such a staple die set. Once the 'frame' is in place all of the colored cardstock can be quickly inset in the perfect position.

I adhered the black 'frame' on top, but slightly off set so that some white peeks through. I gave everything a coat of shimmer with a clear Wink Of Stella pen.

The rest of the card comes together really quickly. A little bit of stamping on the card panel before adhering my circles. I chose the Hand Lettered Thanks stamp set to create a custom sentiment on the front as well as add a secondary sentiment to the inside of the card.

On the back of the cards I added the small presents stamp from All The Cheer to my personalized stamp. The image perfectly coordinates with the die and brings the whole design throughout the card. This is a great way to further customize those personal stamps for occasions and holidays. I'm sure you have several small images in your stash that would work.

Now it's time to get these in the mail! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and your new year is off to a great start!

Friendship Valentines w/Joni ft. MODERN PEONIES

Hello Everyone, Joni here sharing a mix products for Valentines Day cards. The products I used are Modern Peonies , Modern Peonies Die, Knit Patterns, and the Flower Doodle Dies.

While I had the supplies out and since I was already in the groove, I went ahead and did another version as well. I don't know about you, but often when making a card, I struggle with "this or that?", "here or there?"...so why not create another version while I'm at it.

To begin I first stamped one of the images from Knit Patterns on to white cardstock. I then added a little ink blending around the edges of the card panel using Distress Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral.

I stamped the flower and leaves from Modern Peonies in Coconut Husk Dye Ink, colored them with Copic markers and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. For the sentiment I used the oldie but goodie Flower Doodle Die.

To give the sentiments a little more weight, I used the ol' stacking trick. I die-cut the sentiments "smile" and "love" from gold cardstock. I cut them a couple of more times from white cardstock and adhered them one on top of the other. You can used as many layers as you'd liked, depending on how thick you want them to be. I then adhered the gold die cut on top of each.

I hope you enjoyed today's cards! Thanks for dropping in!

Copics & Colored Pencils w/Kelly ft. SYMPATHY LILIES

Hello Crafters! I don't know about you but I need a break from all the cold, snow cards. I typically lose my mojo in the winter months and I've found one of the ways to combat that is to break out of my routine.

In order to get out of my funk I went with a brightly colored floral card today. AND I'm really happy about it :)

I used several sets out side of their original themes today and I would encourage you to do the same. Lilies aren't just for sympathy cards and a Christmas banner can be used anytime of the year.

I pulled out several sets and just started playing around. The card didn't end up the way I originally intended but I think it looks better than my first plan, so I'm winning, right?


Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

While I'm not typically one who usually adds colored pencil to my projects, in this case I think it really does bring the colors together like I explained in the video above. It also gives a great texture to the leaves and flowers which I really like.

Even though I didn't originally think about trimming the flowers out of the bouquet, I'm glad I tried it. I never would have stamped the background leaves in green if I hadn't disliked the original background so much. Talk about happy accidents!

I hope you enjoyed today's project. As always, thank you so much for joining me! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
