Rolled Roses Thank You Card


Hello everyone! I was inspired by May Park’s rolled felt flowers using our Flower Circles Die to make my card for today. I used patterned paper instead of felt and thought I should share a few tricks I’ve learned for conditioning paper to make it easier to roll. 1. Choose a few patterned paper you like. Diecut with the biggest scalloped circle die from Flower Circles Die. 2. Slice the scalloped circle diecut open and use the end of a paint brush to shape it into a spiral shape. We call this “conditioning the paper”. 3. Wrap the conditioned paper on your finger tip… Read More »

3D Suspension Tree Card – Simon Says Stamp Holiday Release


Hello everyone! Popped in to share another card I made with Suspension Tree Die from Simon Says Stamp New Holiday Release. I made a 3D suspension tree from it. Here is a closeup.

RIC #26 – Sending Christmas Joy


Hello everyone! It is time for another Runway Inspired challenge! The floral dress pattern reminded me of origami flowers! So I turned the TV on and took my time in making a  poinsettia for my card! I could not make the flower center following the tutorial, so I cut the center off and flattened it out! LOVE the result! The perforated chevron border was another unintended cool effect: the paper was too thin for the embossing folder so I turn it over and used it this way! Yay! Happy with how this card turned out! Only a week till Christmas! I hope… Read More »

Tuesday Trigger: Happy Happy Joy Joy


I am in a mood for leaves and repeated patterns! Checkout this week’s Tuesday Trigger! And here is my take: I saw Terri sanded her embossed Bazzill Basics swiss dot paper here and could not wait to try it:) My dots are not as raised as hers because I ran my paper through my die cut machine first. Spring Flowers die by Lifestyle Crafts. We have been on shorts for a couple of weeks here in Arizona:) Hope that you have a sunny day too! Snails are from a free template I get from Calendar of the Month Club by Scout Creative… Read More »
