Spring has finally arrived and soon the air will be filled with the wonderful fragrance of lilacs. We can create realistic lilacs for our cards and other projects using Susan’s Garden Notes Lilac die set. Using the A Way With Words 4-Seasons die set we can complete a perfect Spring card. Here is how this card was created.
Hello Crafty Friends. This is Selma Stevenson today and I have designed a card using Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s CountryScapes die sets. I don’t think any of us are quite ready for snow, but it I’m sure it won’t be long. Here is how I created this card.
Hello!! It’s Wanda here. I love the colors of Fall and the not so hot days. It’s a beautiful time of the year. Today’s card celebrates Autumn, its wonderful colors, and friendship.
Decorating wreaths is a great tradition. Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson today with a Wintertime Wreath. This type of wreath is probably most popular in the South, but is so easy to create a beautiful card by using Susan’s Garden Notes Southern Magnolia and Garden Notes Evergreen Wreath die sets. Here is how the card was created.
Shimmer Sheetz Summer Seashells
By Judi Kauffman
Hello, everyone. I’m glad to be back as today’s guest designer.
If it weren’t for seashells and how the sun looks over water at dawn and dusk, I’d probably never set foot on a beach! There. I’ve said it. I don’t venture onto the sand unless it’s my preferred time of day or a season other than summer. During the hours that others are baking themselves and cavorting in the water I’m happily indoors, listening to a book on tape and making cards.
A big summer hello! It’s Suzanne here today with a card that is quickly becoming my “go to” card for its ease of assembly and its ability to look completely different depending on the words you choose and how you coordinate your patterned papers. In addition to Summer Friends, shown above, there are more samples right after the supply list, so be sure to take a peek!
For today’s card, I chose to combine Summer and Friends in light summery cottage colours, but it would be simple to convert this into a birthday or anniversary card. The addition of the flourish from Calligraphic Elements is perfect underneath a word (like Friends or Thanks) where the die has no “built in” flourish under the word.
Here is how I made this cheery baby!
Happy Saturday! We meet again. It’s Suzanne back again today with another conversation with her craft supplies… Some of these supplies have been calling to me for a long time, others I had to coerce to come out to play. I promised them grand things!
Here is a birthday card for the people in your life who were born in the spring. They’re going to love the Magnolia flower placed on a rustic wooden surface and displayed on an easel card.
Here is how you make this card —
Hello!! I’ts Wanda here today. Have you had a chance to check out the new Spring Release? If you missed the blog post regarding the new dies you can find it HERE. My card uses the Winter die from the new A Way With Words 4 Seasons set. I’m quite glad that it is not winter outside!!! But I did have fun making a card using the die.
Hello!! It’s Wanda Hentges here. I am super excited to be sharing a project using two of the brand new, Spring Release 2016, A Way With Words dies. I’ve made a card but this project could easily be expanded upon and made into a scrapbook page or even a home decor piece. I’ve combined the new words with an altered piece of Through The Lens Patterned Cardstock (Wood) , Susan’s Lilac die and Els’ Small Butterfly.
