Star Dies Used as Stencils

 I wanted to incorporate my large selection of dies in a new way. I decided to trace them as you would stencils. Then I added a few dots of color in acrylic paints using none other than a q tip. The q-tip has become one of my favorite painting devices lately. Then it just to a fine liner pen to add in a few more details. The sentiment came from a pack I bought from Alliexpress that is great for the everyday kind of cards. Hope you get a chance to get creative today.

Father's Day Watercolor Card


Thank you for the idea @ from Tik Tok for the idea of watercoloring fish. I was stumped on what to do this year for Father's day. If Andrea says you can draw and/or paint it I believe her. Now is this a work of art? Maybe not, but it turned out super cute. Hoping the hubby likes it. Get out your watercolor paints and give this a try if you too need something quick for a Father's Day Card.

Design Team Project: My First Ever Impossible Card

 There are so many fun folds I still haven't tried...but now I can check off trying the "impossible card" which turns out to be pretty possible. I focused on the technique of making the card on this one. The decorations were totally simple. But the colors, the card design, and the cute dollar tree finds, made this such a super cute card. This does take a little math and I will leave down below the measurements for you that I hope along with the video will help.

This card is for Craftyhazelnut's June Patterned Paper Challenge. You can go check it out here.

You can also see the video for this over on my YouTube channel...found here. To make the card start with 110lb or more piece of cardstock that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Find the midpoint on the 4/14 side at 2 1/8 and draw a pencil line down it. On one side of the 5 1/2 side find the midpoint @ 2 3/4 inches and draw a line up to the midpoint on the 4 1/4 side. Turn the card and on the other side measure in 1 inch on each side and draw a line up to the 1/2 point again on the 4 1/4 side. You are going to cut up all these lines. Then you are going to score on the 4 1/4 inch side between the two cut marks that are 1 inch from each end. Then rotate the right-hand side of the card folding the score lines (see the video for this part). To make the patterned paper layer cut two pieces that are 2 1/4 x 4. On the 2 1/4 side at 3/4 inch in cut up to 2 1/8 or sink the blade at 2 1/8 and cut down. Do this to the other piece as well. Be sure to note which way to cut so the pattern you want to show will face up on the card.

Use Your Stash: Make this Card With the Supplies You Have

 I wanted to explore again how you can make a card design using different products but still end up with a super cute card. Here is another Happy Birthday that is super simple. Great for beginners or veterans of card making like myself. I used watercolor paints, washi, and on the last one strips of patterned paper. So get your supplies out today to give this a try.

This would be a great one to mass produce to have plenty on hand.
