Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Sitting Next to You Card

When I designed the new Cover Plate: In the Woods die I knew one of my first projects would be a clear card.  Pairing that technique up with Erin's new Love Notes set, complete with the two Adirondack chairs, was a match made in heaven!


I die-cut the cover plate from Classic Kraft cardstock.


The leaves were watercolored with Ripe Avocado ink to help add a splash of color.


Pure Poppy cardstock was die-cut with the Love Notes die and then stamped with the coordinating chair images in Scarlet Jewel so there wasn't too much of a contrast.


A block of Ocean TIdes cardstock was adhered to the inside and heat embossed with the *perfect* sentiment from Love Notes, using White Filigree Embossing Powder.


The cover plate frame was adhered to the cover of the clear card base using scor-tape just around the edge, with the Adirondack chairs at the bottom.  This will be a wonderful anniversary card to give to David, it conveys how I feel perfectly!

Simply Amazing Card


My next card uses Melissa Bickford's new Hello There stamp set.  I love this set so much becuase it really offers up a *one stop shop* convenience since it has such a variety of images and sentiments all in one place.


I decided to start with this sweet cupcake.  The bottom was stamped in Limeade Ice, thene hte top in Summer Sunrise.  A cherry and some sprinkles top off the cupcake.


I created this easy little garland for the top of the card with the Star Gazer dies.  After cutting the stars in a variety of colors, I just threaded them onto some string.  It's simple to do since the holes are already cut in star because of the die design.  The star garland was tied to either end of the card front.


I added a sentiment under the cupcake with True Black ink along with some Aqua Mist accents.

Hello Handsome Card

Using Hello There once again, I opted to create a masculine card.  I loved this sentiment because it's how I greet David when he arrives home from work!  The stripes were stamped first, then adding the sentiment.


The tie was die-cut fromt he white card front, then die-cut again from Summer Sunrise and stamped so that it could be embedded back into the card front.


Everything was adhered to a Smokey Shadow card base.

Uncorked Card

When I saw Lizzie's Drips & Dribbles set I knew it would be awesome paired up with Uncorked!


I decided to go in the direction of red wine and stamped the Drips & Dribbles in Scarlet Jewel.  It looks so realistic, doesn't it?  The wine bottle from Uncorked was added in Ripe Avocado and Tropical Teal, as well as the wine glass in Soft Stone.  The sentiment finishes it off in True Black.


The stamped card front is attached to a Soft Stone card base.

Lovely Marriage Card

I decided to play around with the Drips & Dribbles set to try to create some modern looking roses and I think the experiment was a success!


I stamped the circular drink rings repeatedly in Berry Sorbet to create each rose.  Then a few of the larger *drips* were used for the flower centers and leaves.  I used a black pen to add a bit of detail to the centers and help accent the black of the sentiment.


The sentiment, from Love Notes, is a beautiful testiment to a beaituful marriage.  Perfect when creating an anniversary card for a loved one.  I stamped it in True Black onto a separate strip of white cardstock.


A little white crochet thread tied around the card a few times helps to add a little texture.

January Birthday Card

Dawn created a lovely set to celebrate January birthdays, and this particular sentiment is my absolute favorite.  Soft blues and purples seemed to be the perfect thing to pair with it.


I embossed the sentiment with White Filigree Embossing Powder and then watercolored over it with Blueberry Sky ink refill.  After that dried, I stamped the gorgeous snowflakes, included in Birthday Classics: January, in shades of Spring Rain and Winter Wisteria.


A glittered frame using 1/8" Scor-tape and Prisma Glitter was the perfect thing to help add focus to the sentiment (Dawn did a wonderful tutorial on these glittered frames in the Make It Monday video HERE).  I also added a few rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes.

Splendid Adventure Card

My last card uses the new Text Block: Love die, which is SO detailed and gorgeous, you will want to use it for every wedding and anniversary card you need to send out!  Not to mention how quick and easy it would be to make tags out of it as well.  

Text block

I started my card by die-cutting the block from white cardstock and backing it with vellum.


Underneath, I stamped the heart from Hello There in a rainbow of colors.

I love how the vellum allows the colors to show through, but still makes the Text Block center stage.
