How to create a mixed media card with So Suzy Stamps and Finnabair

Mixed Media Card with So Suzy Stamps, Ken Oliver Color Burst and Finnabair embellishments

You might have seen that I started teaching classes in my local craft store Scrapbooking Forever and I prefer to teach techniques. I think showing how to use a product in different ways is more interesting than one project using tons of products and learning just one technique per product. While preparing one of my classes this is one of the cards I created as an example. I like mixed media, so I created a mixed media card with So Suzy Stamps, Ken Oliver Color Burst and Finnabair embellishments. All supplies used are listed at the end of the page. …

Two “Simple” Cards – Guest Designing for Emerald Creek

Two simple cards with Emerald Creek and Ken Oliver Color Bursts

I’m so excited to be guest designing for Emerald Creek today and I’m so grateful for this opportunity. I met Kim at Creativation and after talking a bit I just asked her, if I could create a card with one of her amazing stamps. You should definitely take a look at her store, she has some super unique stamps, embossing powders and little gems. Because I liked the β€œsimple” stamp from Kelly Klapstein so much, I decided to create two cards with it. I just love that font and as you might know, I’m not a “simple” card kind a …

Snarktoberfest #1 – Still Time for Halloween

snarktoberfest

Happy Snarktoberfest everyone! I just made that up, but with all the snarky stamps that I bought just recently, I thought that we need a festivity for that πŸ˜› It’s still enough time for Halloween, so I started the Snarktoberfest with a very snarky Halloween card.

I thought that this one is just hilarious πŸ™‚ I started by die-cutting a piece of water color card stock and stamping the sentiment with …

Two Yous From the Stamp of Approval Box

You SoA

A few weeks ago I bought the latest Stamp of Approval box and realized that I haven’t played a whole lot with it so far. That had to change! So I grabbed the stamps and dies and created two simple and fun cards. You One The first card is rather simple. I used the geo builder set (the reason why I wanted to have the box in the first place) and stamped the two arrow images in different blue tones. While switching the inks, I also switched the stamp. I started with Simon Says Lake Shores, switched to High Dive, …
