Season's Greetings

Today's project was inspired by a card seen on YouTube by Linda Bauwin.  I love the idea of not always making a standard card and this fit the bill. The card base is Lost Lagoon and there was only one stamp set and one DSP paper pack used.  This was a pretty simple card to put together and I hope you enjoy.

Cut a piece of Lost Lagoon to 4 ¼” x 8 ½” and score at 3”
Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3”x 8” and score at 4”
Take a piece of DSP from All is Calm , cut at 2 ¾” x 3 ¾” and adhere to Whisper White piece.
Using Letterpress Winter stamp set, stamp Season’s Greetings in Lost Lagoon ink onto the DSP.
Cut a different piece of DSP from the same paper pack to 2 ¾” x 4” and adhere to right Lost Lagoon panel.
Stamp small snowflake from Letterpress Winter onto Lost Lagoon card stock using Lost Lagoon ink.  Next stamp medium snowflake on inside panel on the right side.
I punched a tree out using the Tree punch and popped it up with dimensional to be used as the closure for the card.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and please check back often for inspiration.

Occasions Card

Just in the mood to use up a scrap made from the Apothecary Accents and Vellum.  I made this one as a sympathy card but it can probably be used for any occasion.
Take a look at the project below and I even included the instructions for how to make it.

Other Supplies Used:
Vellum- Paper Studio, ATG tape runner, Heat Tool, Embossing Bag


1    Cut a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock in half to create an A2 size card (4 ¼”x 5 ½”).
2     Cut a piece of Moonlight DSP to 4”x5 ¼” and also a piece of Vellum to the same size.  Rub embossing bag over the Vellum, stamp image from Gifts of Kindness in VersaMark and sprinkle White embossing powder over the image.  Heat to melt the powder.
3   Adhere Vellum and DSP together using ATG then adhere to the card front leaving a ¼” strip of card base showing on the left side.
4.   Using a scrap of Lost Lagoon cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Lost Lagoon ink and pop up on dimensional and center onto card front.
5.   For the inside cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼” and a ¼” x 4”strip of DSP (same as card front).  Adhere DSP to bottom of Whisper White card stock.  You can stamp a sentiment inside but I chose to leave it blank.

True Friend card

So, it's amazing to have such good friends and then to find the right stamp to send them a card of thanks.  I enjoyed making this card for a friend who's been helping me out when I have to take care of my husband, who is still fighting the fight against cancer.  Thank goodness I have such good friends.  Take a look at the card I created.

Happy Mother's Day
