Autumn by Anna Wight

Anna Wight shares a beautiful Autumn card today!

Anna used the  DIE143-R Feather die set, DIE215-E Pine Pair die set, and CL541 Autumn Leaves.


To make my card, I used the Feather die set, along with the Pine Pair die set, and a sentiment from the Autumn Leaves clear stamp set. I die cut pretty designer papers in various brown tones as well as a beautiful copper colored glitter paper for a bit of sparkle and shine.


Have a great day!

Candy Corn Halloween Card by Jenny Gropp

Jenny Gropp uses Clear Set #CL488 Have Broom will Travel and Clear Set #CL554 Creepy forher fun Halloween card!

 I stamped the candy corns and masked them with Eclipse Tape. After masking, I stamped the verse multiple times over the candy. I airbrushed the background with YR15 and Y17.
Candy corns are pretty quick and easy to color with a few Copics! I stacked up my oval die cuts a little wonky, using foam tape in between layers for dimension.
I used a Wink of Stella Clear Brush to add a little sugary sparkle to the candy corns.

On the inside, I added a few leftovers to finish the card. The card size is an A2.


Have a great day!

Sweet Autumn by Jenny Gropp

Jenny Gropp shares a gorgeous project today!

Jenny used Spooky Trees #H7759, Square Shaker Frame Die #DIE002-Z, Border Duo 1 #DIE017-V, Circle Cut Out Border #DIE171-K, All Seasons #C3534 for her project.

When I saw the new Spooky Trees image I knew I'd be airbrushing! Love doing silhouette scenes like this! I used the Border Duo 1 Die to cut the edges of the card base to make it a little more interesting than a plain square card.
I used a circle punch to make a mask for the moon.  An unusual color combo for sure!
I used a square nestie to cut out the scene and added the piercing around the inside edge of the die. I added the Square Shaker Frame die as an additional layer.
On the inside, I added a the Autumn Quote and the Circle Cut Out Border on the ivory liner.
 other supplies:

Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Natural White, Pink
Other: Seam Binding Ribbon, Spellbinder's Square Nesties, Bow Easy, Enamel Adhesive Embellsihments, Foam Tape, Sizzix Embossing Folder, Piercing Tool, Perfect Layer Rulers

Wedding Card by Jenny Gropp

We have a gorgeous wedding card to share today from Jenny Gropp.

Jenny used #CL316 A Good Marriage, #CL491 Life Stuff Sentiments, Tiny Flowers #DIE-140-D, Large Bow Die #DIE063-I, Banners and Tails #DIE123-P and  Flags #DIE015-F



Wedding season will be here soon, so I made a card to be ready! I used the new Tiny Flowers Die to create my open flower background. You can see in the below picture I used the Sizzix Magnetic Plate to line up the die to get multiple cuts and create a background of cut out flowers. I cut a few blue flowers to pop back in the cut outs. I added a black little flag in the corner with some pearl embellishments.


This was my first time using the magnetic platform for something like this. It works wonderfully. No tape or anything... just put your paper and die in place and the magnetic platform holds it perfectly. I used small plates . The small flowers just seemed to make it quick and easy! One tip----you need to use a pretty flat plate on the bottom, meaning not warped.



On the inside I created a little gift card pocket and topped it with the Large Bow Die to make it a little more "gift" looking. I added a sweet sentiment from the clear set A Good Marriage.


I stamped the sentiment from the clear set Life Stuff Sentiments and framed it with
the Banners and Tails Dies.
Have a great day!





Fly by Jenny Gropp

Oh my! Check out this gorgeous card from Jenny Gropp!

Jenny uses Clear Set #CL476 You can Fly, Large Bird on Branch #DIE161-N, Alphabet Typewriter Lowercase #DIE159-M, Feather Die Set #DIE143-R



 Hope you are enjoying the great die ideas the team is sharing as much as I am! For today's card I chose to make the new Large Bird on Branch Die the focus. I used the Square Shaker Frame to frame the bird. I cut it twice, once in ivory and once in blue. I used a square die to cut away more of the inside on the blue frame to get a layered look. 




 Here's the base of the card. I used a square die to cut out a window in the card base and the front layer panel. I wanted the opening to go all the way through since I was going to use vellum. The vellum would allow some light to come through. I lightly distressed the edges with a Creamy Brown Chalk cats eye ink pad. 




 Here you can see my card coming together. The bird and branches are tucked in between the ivory and blue frame. I used foam tape in between the two frames as well to give it more dimension. 




 I backed the frame with vellum before adhering it to the front panel. You can see it is a thick vellum... my fingers are just shadows behind the vellum. But when the card opens it lets the light come through nicely. I added "fly" using the new Typewriter Alphabet Die.




 Here's the inside... I used the clear set You can Fly for the sentiment. This set is full of great sentiments to go along with our Feather Dies or any of the Bird Dies.




When the card is closed, the vellum is thick enough not to show the inside of the card. The finished card is 5" square and opens at the bottom tent style. 


Have a great day!

Happy Birthday by Daniela Dobson

Here is a sweet Birthday card from Daniela Dobson. Daniela used C14196 Cupcake & CL445 Banners & Greetings for her card.

Happy birthday by Daniela Dobson

 For the stamps I used the cupcake from Cupcake stamp set and a sentiment from Banner Greetings stamp set. I used a paper straw on another project recently so I thought I would add one to this card, as well.

 I colored the cupcake with watercolor crayons and added some glitter to the top.

Happy Haunting Card Tutorial by Jenny Gropp

Jenny Gropp shares a tutorial today for a gorgeous Halloween card.

Jenny uses Banners and Tails Die Set, CL490 Tangled Web Clear Set and  Border Duo 2 Die.


I've been cutting up my Graphic 45 papers again! I used papers from the Happy Haunting Collection and with the little spiders dangling... I thought it was a great match to use the Itsy Bitsy Spider stamp! The stamp on the inside along with the Itsy Bitsy Spider are both in the Tangles Web clear set! 

 On the inside I added a few more layers using the Border Duo 2 Die to add the mini scalloped edge along the right side. 

The Itsy Bitsy Spider was cut out with the Banners and Tails Die Set. I curved the paper a bit and tucked it under the bow, adding a little dimensional silicone to keep the banner in the bent shape. 
Have a great day!

Halloween Card Tutorial by Jenny Gropp

We have an adorable Halloween card tutorial to share today from Jenny Gropp using Impression Obsession's CL490 Tangled Web Clear Set,  DIE002-Z Square Frame Square Die, DIE115-J Spider Web and DIE094-U Pumpkin Die.


 Of course I'm leading with Halloween! My most favorite kind of card to make!!! 
I created a little open window using acetate and the new fun spider web die!

 I took a picture for you of the two elements before I glued them. The spider webs are glued to the edge of the orange frame, that way there are no glue marks on the acetate to be seen from the other side.

 Here's the up close of the front only. The spider webs are on top and acetate is under them. That way you see a little texture too. the center panel is popped up with foam tape.

Here's the card opened up... You can sort of see the acetate. I added another orange frame and took the opportunity to add the pumpkin which covered up the glue that you could see through the acetate. A fun Boo sentiment and a spider to finish it off! I used Spellbinder's Grand Labels One to create the card base.
