Use your favorite embossing folder and then use a brayer or gently slide your ink pad over the surface. You can use color or multiple colors. Stamp a focal image, color and then fussy cut. Embellish with some ribbon and a sentiment.
I dedicate this card to all of those with genetic illnesses awaiting a medical break through to ease their daily struggles. This week we lost someone to Cystic Fibrosis. She was a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend and teacher. Words can never be enough to fill the void left by someone you love.
Hug those you love every day and be thankful you have the day with them!
I like to have some generic masculine cards on hand. It’s easy to add a quick sentiment for whatever the occasion.
I simply embossed my paper and then gently ran different ink pad over the surface. Try with any of your embossing folders to create some beautiful and fun backgrounds.
This one takes a little more time but is still a quick card. I used an embossing folder that had 2 designs on it, stamp and embossed my wreath, colored the wreath and attached the die cut bow. Embellish with some small pearls.
Our focal image today will be an uncolored outline sticker.
- 5 x 6 1/2″ white base card
- Silver mirror board pieces: 6 ½ x5, 5 5/8 x4 1/8, 3 3/8×3 3/8, 2 3/8 x 2 3/8″, a strip measuring 1 x 6 for your band

For assembly, I cut all of my pieces first. I embossed all of my white card stock and then mounted them onto my mirror board. The smallest square I did not emboss to showcase my outline sticker.
Great card for an outdoor wedding, shower, birthday or friendship.
Just another quick sample of outline stickers on patterned paper. I used the shimmer pen to highlight different parts of the teapot. Accent with some diamond border stickers and you have a quick card to share.
Have a great Saturday!
Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dads.
This floral notecard is easily done with any embossing folder. I gently ran the ink pad over the raised portion of the embossed paper. I embellished with die cuts and a flower.
Have a great rest of the week.
This colorful card screams Spring! The best part of Spring is all of the beautiful colors and flowers.
I started my card with a 5 1/2 x 7 1/2″ turquoise base. My green layer measures 5 3/8 x 7 3/8″. My polka dot paper layer measures 5 1/4 x 7 1/4″ and is wrapped with a pink ribbon. I die cut a large oval in a darker turquoise card stock and embossed it with the Darice folder called Polka Dot. I die cut a smaller oval in white card stock using the Decorative Ovals by Spellbinders.
I stamped the bunny, sentiment and butterfly from the Happy Spring stamp set by Rubber Cafe and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. I used GB8,GB10,PP1,DG3,DG4,OR1,LV1,PL2.
For my flowers, I stamped the Large Classic Petunia smaller flowers with black Staz On ink. I inked the edges of my Petunia petals Victorian Velvet and the centers with Dusty Concord and Barn Door by Ranger. I shaped the base of the petals with my bone folder and the tips of the petals with my Flowers Shaping Tool kit by Heartfelt Creations. I centered the flowers with white prills.
To assemble the card, I used craft foam to layer the focal image. I glued the flowers and leaves to the left of the oval. I accented the flowers with a white Stickles and the oval with pink pearls.
This card, or any of your creations, will surely brighten someone’s day. Share your sunshine and creativity with those who need a little “pick me up”.
Spring is in the air and Easter is around the corner. This card is vibrant and delicate in appearance. The bright colors in combination with the parchment paper are a great pair.
Start with a white card base of 5 1/2 x 7 1/2. Layer a piece of mint card stock that measures 5 3/8 x 7 3/8. I used a 5 x 7 piece of kaleidoscope paper that is part of the Razzle Dazzle Paper Pack from Michaels. I embossed the paper with Swiss Dots by Cricut. I attached a piece of pink ribbon to the center and attached to the back. Layer the kaleidoscope paper onto the mint card stock.
For the center of the card, I used the Labels 49 die by Spellbinders. I cut the largest die in yellow card stock, the second largest die in white and a frame with the same 2 dies in mint card stock. Stamp Happy Easter with black Staz On the white label. The Happy Easter sentiment is from the Happy Spring stamp set by Rubber Cafe.
For the flowers, I stamped the Flowering Dogwood flowers by Heartfelt Creations onto parchment paper using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink by Ranger. I stamped two sets of leaves. One is on regular white card stock with Forest Moss Distress Ink and the other with Cracked Pistacio Distress Ink on parchment paper. The stamens are die cut out of parchment paper and moss card stock.
To shape the flowers, I used a bone folder to curl the petals and then used the Flower Shaping Tool by Heartfelt Creations to push down the center of the flower. I added two stamens to the center of each flower. I combined 1 moss card stock stamen with 1 parchment stamen.
To assemble the card, layer the white label onto the yellow label. Use pop dots to layer the frame on top of the yellow label. I used craft foam on the back of the label to give dimension to the center of the card.
To decorate the label, I attached 2 of the Dogwood Flowers to the left corner and 1 to the top right corner. I embellished with both types of the leaves, Arianna Lace pieces, a pink bow and pink pearls.
During this season, I hope you are generous with your talents.
This card features the Celebrate The Journey Collection by Heartfelt Creations. I made this card to inspire those going through a tough time in their life. If you think of everything as a new adventure, your positive outlook will get you through.
This card starts off with a blue base that is 5 1/2 x 7 1/2. I used a white panel that measures 5 3/8 x 7 3/8 embossed with “Clouds” by Embossalicious. I accented the panel with Broken China Distress Ink by Ranger.
The panel is from the Celebrate The Journey Paper Collection. I cut out the middle panel next to the balloon to allow the clouds to be seen. I used pop dots to lift the panel. To accent the balloon, I cut out a Fleur Border Basics from the turquoise paper in the pack and cut down the arches.
I used the tags and border papers to finish off the card.
If you know someone going through a rough period, do a little something to encourage them. It’s easier to stay positive in life when you feel supported. Sharing your cards will give them something positive to look at every day.
