Posted by Julissa Padilla on

Say hello to this cute, toothy whale from the new Ahoy Matey Stamp set.  This stamp set is filled with adorable characters and matching sentiments that are sure to inspire a wave of cards!  One of the cards I made was this interactive slider card.  The background was made by ink blotting distress oxides and water onto a card piece.  I die cut a border using a Gina Marie Designs - Big & Little Chain Rectangle die set and used the Lawn Fawn - Slide on Over die to make the channel for the while to slide through.  Next I stamped the...

Color Me Monday #12

Posted by Amy Purdie on

I really love a stamp that has the ability to go with any color scheme, any sentiment, and any theme. I think this anchor stamp does just that. It could be all pinks, greys, greens, or red, white, and blue as shown here. Sending a card reminding someone that they are your anchor could be a thank you, a birthday, or a just because card.This week I wanted to use red, white, and shades of blues for my card.I used Spectrum Noir markers to color my anchor and I colored around the edge creating my light blue bordering using TB3...

Make Your Day Crabby! 🦀 (... in a good way)

Posted by Julissa Padilla on

It's Wednesday, but don't be crabby! Here's another preview of one of the new stamp sets sailing its way into the new release on June 1st!  "Ahoy Matey" is a super cute stamp set with so many great stamps to enjoy.  I used the adorable crab and made a fun patterned background. Although it would be totally cute to color each of these crabs in, I kept them plain and distressed the edges with a little Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke.  I matted the stamped background on a grey layer of card stock and adhered that to a red card base.   Next,...
