Karen here. I love googly eyes. Ok, that’s really random, but they are just the cutest! And googly eyes on the critters from Joset’s Designs are just too cute. Today, I used the adorable Panda Bear die and some googly eyes to create a card of appreciation for a boss who is moving onto his next role.
To create this card, I first cut an 8-1/2″x11″ piece of black cardstock in 1/2 and folded one part of it in half to create a card base. I then created the card front by cutting a slide from one of the papers in the Rainbow of Happiness paper collection. I turned one part over and cut the card front using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies.
I added some denim ribbon across the middle. Next I created the Panda Bear. I cut the pieces with black cardstock and with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. After I cut the pieces, I generally lay them out before I start to put them together like this:
How cute is that little guy??! To finish this card, I added a sentiment from the Bear Hugs Sentiment Set and a couple gems to highlight the sentiment. So easy and so fun! Thank you for stopping by today!
Now that the presents are all opened (but decorations are still up!) we need to get out our thank you cards before we move on too far! Today I’m sharing how I mass produce thank you cards that are all a bit different but more quickly made than one design.
Hello Friends, Piyanki here with some Black Eyed Susans from Susan’s Garden. Black Eyed Susans are from the sunflower family and at a glance they look similar. But the proportions are not the same; the layering and shaping of the petals are different, too. This was a fun card to make and I had a particularly good time creating the background. Here’s how I created and assembled this card:
Hi Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet card to remind someone special that you’re always with them, even when you’re apart.
To get the best look with your A Way With Wordsdies you want good contrast between the letters and the background. I thought it would be fun to use the ModaScrap Flower Lace 2 as a background with a different colour behind it, but that creates a far too complicated pattern and the words disappear. We need more contrast! There are a number of ways to work around this problem, but here is the one I chose.
Follow along with me to see how you can make this card!
It’s Suzanne here today with a completely unexpected gift idea! Do you know someone suffering from spring allergies? I do! Here is a little surprise for that sniffling special someone. Scour the secondhand stores for vintage cotton or linen handkerchiefs and tuck one inside the sweet envelope you’re going to make. “But Suzanne,” you’re thinking, “You don’t have a die that says ‘Bless’!” True. But I do have a die that says ‘Blessings’ and with a couple of cuts you’ve got just what you need. Here’s how…
Happy Saturday to you!!! Wanda here 🙂 It’s just 3 weeks until Christmas and I can hardly believe how quickly this year has flown by. In the hustle and bustle of life we don’t always have time or take time to send out thank yous. If I do make some, they are often something quick. Sometimes I want to send a special thank you and I think this card would qualify for that!! Continue Reading
I often find myself needing thank you cards and know they make a perfect little gift or pick me up to give to friends. My card set today is a very simple one done with just a few dies and one of my favorite layering stencils by Karen Burniston.
Hi, Annette Green here today to share a Thank You card using Susan’s Garden Notes Carnation die. Each time I create with Susan’s dies, I do a Google image search of the specific flower for visual reference, then print out several of them together on photo paper to keep in a notebook. When searching for carnation images, I came across a bi-colored yellow-red carnation that was very dramatic. Let me share how you can make your own and add it to a pretty card.
It’s Tina here and I have some wonderful news to share. Today is my first official post as one of Susan’s Designers for Susan’s Garden Club. Yeah!!! I am super excited to be joining her wonderful team.
My card for today was inspired by Spring which has finally arrived here in Canada. It took its sweet time. Everywhere I go I am seeing gardens bloom. I knew my first card would have to be a garden.
