Having extra greetings on hand for those last minute occasions is always a good idea.  You never know when a friend or co-worker might need a little pick-me up or a happy note of congratulations.

Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project: Welcome Baby!

 

The Crafters Essentials 1 die has so many options.  The design team gals have come up with so many great ideas for this set.  I thought today, since I had this cute baby stamp, I would use some of the shapes from the set for a little “welcome baby card”.

I chose these shapes from the set along with some Watercolor Wishes paper from Lawn Fawn.IMG_0687

I cut my shapes using various colors of the paper.  I love how the stitching on these dies are farther apart.  It’s a softer look–perfect for a baby card!

I colored my stamp using various gray Copics, then cut it out with scissors.

I arranged my shapes on the front of a white notecard, using foam squares for some.  I wanted the squares to kind of mimic baby blocks.  I then added a few sequins for shimmer and texture.

CutCardstock Project: Sending Smiles

Creating a scene on the front of a card is fun and easy to do when you have die cuts to help you out.  For today’s project, featured on the CutCardstock blog, I thought there would be no better way to showcase the Pop Tone card stock than with this method.

For my scene, I used these sun ray and hillside dies along with Lemon Drop and Gumdrop Green Pop Tone card stock.  Everything was adhered with foam tape onto a note card I created using Banana Split card stock–I love those names!

For the animals, I stamped them all together with my stamp platform on to some Cougar White Super Smooth card stock.  I colored them with Copics, then cut them out using their coordinating dies.

I wanted to frame two of the animals with a heart, so I created a frame using two nesting heart dies along with some Orange Fizz Pop Tone card stock.

Lots of bright color and texture make this card a cheerful greeting to send to a friend.
