This suite of products is “sew” much fun.  This is another CASE of a card in our demonstrator magazine.  I love the background pattern stamp.  It brings back memories of sewing projects that I did with my mom when I was young.  The thread spool is just the tab punch with the rounded ends trimmed off […]

Digital Hybrid Cards

Here are the cards I promised earlier using the free digital downloads disk available during Sale-A-Bration.  For these 2 cards I designed the entire panel, grouped all the objects,  then copied the panels several times onto one piece of cardstock before printing so I could easily make multiple cards of the same design.  I then […]

Here’s an easy version of a quilt card using the Springtime Vintage dsp.  My tutorial from a few years ago is posted  here   For this version, the quilt panel was run with the Finial Press embossing folder through the Big Shot.  This last easy step really adds to the quilted effect.  If you haven’t invested […]

My friend Vicki says the new Glitter Paper from the Occasions minicatalog reminds her of the Ruby Slippers from Wizard of Oz.  She said I should make a shoe card – so voila – Stamp Set:  Things I love I just adhered some scraps of the glitter paper to the shoe. Inside the card I placed […]
