Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a super easy card to share with you using the Garden Notes Cosmos die set. I just love this set because the Cosmos flowers come in a wide range of colors. The splashes of color on your card is sure to brighten anyone’s day. Below are the steps to create your own Cosmos card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2 size)
Step 2 – Diecut Dotted Scallop Rectangles using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets on both sides of Fun Foam, remove the release sheets and adhere to card.
Step 3 – Add any watercolor markers onto an acrylic block. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush colors Persian Blue and Light Green. Spray with water and place it on top of watercolor paper. Hold it in place for a few seconds and you have an instant watercolor background. Trim to 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″. Adhere it to Black Cardstock trimmed to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ using 3mm Clear Double Sided Tape. Adhere the panel to the card front.
Step 4 – Diecut Cosmos using White Soft Finish Cardstock and color in using any color medium of your choice. I used Tri-Blend Markers Bright Pink and Orange. Assemble and shape the flowers using the Susan’s Garden 4pcs All Metal Tool Set. Optional – add Pollen Yellow to the center of the flowers. Adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Stamp Banner Sentiments onto Black Cardstock using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it using a heat tool.
Step 6 – Diecut Stitched Fishtail Banners using the sentiment created from Step 5. Adhere to card using foam tape.
This card can be used for many occasions by changing the colors, sentiment and background. Below is a link to all the products used.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hi everyone! It’s Elena today and this time of year always makes me want to create some cards for Thanksgiving. I don’t own many traditional Thanksgiving themed stamps or dies so I decided to try an experiment to see if I could create a card with a Thanksgiving feel using the Color My Flowers stamps and dies from this past spring, but with fall colors and some easy, fun techniques. I like the result and hope you do too. It’s always nice for me to find new ways to use stamps and dies that I may not normally think of for certain holidays! Here’s how I made the card:
Hi! It’s Elena here and today I am suffering from Spring Fever. As a result, I have created a colorful window box card full of flowers to help satisfy my craving for all things spring. I used the Garden Party Clear Stamps along with some foam tape and several different papers, die cut and layered together to create added dimension on an otherwise simple card. This card could be sent as a friendly hello or, with a change of sentiment, be a fun Mother’s Day card too. Here’s how I made it: Continue Reading

January is chilly here in Nova Scotia. After work I quickly walk my puppy, then put some comfy clothes on and spend time in the craft room. It is a wonderful time of year to be in the craft room and get the creative juices flowing. Yes, crafting is a happy thing to do on these chilly winter days.
