Faux Quilting

I knew I wanted the Stitched Quilt Thin Cut Shapes the moment I saw them in the new book. Evidently, so did everyone else as they sold out and may not be available until the end of March! However, my ladies will get the chance to still play with these dies and make a few cute cards that are quilted with love!

Here is a close-up of the dies and a couple of cards I made. You can see that there are a few shapes that you get on one magnetic sheet. The possiblities are vast, not only for cardmaking, but for your scrapbook pages too! I will be back soon to show a layout I created using the die cuts.

Please check back on my website late March for the availability of these dies. You will want these in your stash!

Feels Like Home Cardmaking

Hello! Have you seen the Feels Like Home collection in the newest Idea Book? It is really a gorgeous, versatile paper collection with soft colors and a black and white base. Here is a collection of cards that I made with this paper, some of the cut-apart pieces, compliments and the super cool watercolor flowers.

You will see that I also chose to use several sentiments from the January Stamp of the Month which unfortunately is no longer available. You can find many other sentiments and quotes throughout the idea book though!

Shop these products online!

These water color dies can be colored with the watercolor palette and brush or you can simply use the water brushes with any of our ink pad colors by simply swiping the lid and applying color to the die cut.

Heart Happy Cards

I have been inspired by some of the artwork on the internet using the Heart Happy papers in the current monthly special. I posted about the promotion earlier and would like to remind you to log onto my website to see all the purchasing options available to you. The papers are the cutest collection of bold colors and great coordinating patterns. Here are a few cards that were inspired by other artists.

I used pieces from the cut-apart paper on each of the cards. These are images that need to be fussy cut and can be placed on anything from cards to scrapbook pages. I also used a variety of stamp sets and some thin cuts, including the newest quilting thin cuts. Lots of faux sewing!

You can get an entire kit with everything you need to make the downloadable workshop found online! Be sure to check it out!
