For you

Hello!

I’m sending everyone flowers to brighten their day! I love purple flowers, but sadly they are hard to find in some varieties. The great thing about sending handmade cards is you can color the flowers any color you wish.

This gorgeous die from Crafty Meraki called Avery Mini Slimline Die is perfect to get creative with.

The flower portion of my card is from a die cut. The die was cut using X-Press It Blending Card and was colored with the following markers and colored pencils.

~Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils~

Flowers: BV02, BV000, BV0000, RV63, RV00, RV000, RV0000 then Prismacolor 996, 994, 956, 929, 938
Flower Centers: YR23, Y15, Y11, Y00
Greens: YG63, YG61, YG13, YG01, G21, G20
Border: C4, C2, C0

My card base is 1/8″ larger than the die cut to give it the look of being layered. I added a patterned paper behind the flowers to add a little bit of visual interest. The sentiment was stamped from the Thanks Bunches Clear Stamp Set.

Fangs for being my friend

Hi friends!

I am scared to death of live bats, but this little paper version sure is cute!

This little cutie is from Crafty Meraki and is included in the stamp set called Ghoul Friends. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Ghostly Greetings.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with the following markers.

~Copics~
Bat: C6, C5, C3, C2, C1, C0, RV11, R000

I started with a 5″ square top folding card base. To that I added a black layer 4-3/4″ square, a print layer 4-1/2″ square and a striped layer 3-1/2″ square. Out of black cardstock I die cut the largest die from the My Favorite Things Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Flags Die Set. The white square measures 2-3/4″.

The black fishtail flag and the bat were attached with double sided foam tape. I added the white dots with a white gel pen.

Thank you

Hello and welcome!

What better way to say thank you than with flowers. I LOVE flowers, and do my best to grow them. Unfortunately the deer love them as well and seem to eat them just when the blooms are about to open.

This gorgeous die called Jewel Bloom Mini Slimline Die is from the October release at Crafty Meraki. The sentiment is from the beautiful Thanks Bunches stamp set. SO many fabulous products to create with again this month!

We are having an Instagram Hop and would love to have you join us. Details below.

I cut the die on plain white card stock and colored it with the following colored pencils.

~Prismacolor Pencils~
Blues: 1027, 105, 905, 992, 289, 938
Yellows: 941, 1034, 942, 916, 915, 1011, 938
Pinks: 994, 993, 1014, 938
Greens: 911, 912, 913, 989, 938

My card base is 6-1/2″ x 3-3/4″. To that I added a layer of white measuring 6-3/8″ x 3-5/8″. The multi-colored notebook paper is from my stash. I carefully cut it out on the diagonal so the lines would be on a slant.

The sentiment was stamped, layered with bright blue cardstock and adhered to the card with liquid glue. I added a few rhinestones in matching colors to finish my card.

Grateful

Hey Friends!

Being grateful for what you have, especially people you love is what makes life amazing!! I am ever so thankful for those I love!!

It’s new release day at Crafty Meraki! There is a lot of inspiration to be found as always!

My card today features a few products from the Craftober new release. This card was easy to put together, and for once…NO coloring!! Sometimes the hardest part is figuring out what paper to use.

I used the Pagoni Mania Mini Slimline Die, the Jewel Bloom Mini Slimline Die, and the sentiment from the Thanks Bunches Clear Stamp Set.

I used the dies included with the Jewel Bloom Mini Slimline Die to create the 3D flowers on my card. I pulled together some coordinating printed cardstock and cut out enough flowers for layering.

My card base is 6-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ with a white layer of 6-3/8″ x 3-5/8″. To this added the Pagoni Mania Mini Slimline die cut panel which was cut out of print cardstock. I added a panel of pink print paper layered with white. The bottom scalloped border was cut using the Waffle Flower Stamps – A2 Lacy Layers Die.

The beautiful flowers and leaves are from the Jewel Bloom Mini Slimline die. I used a flower shaping tool to give the flowers dimension, and added flower stamens to the center of the flowers.

Today I am sharing a beautiful card made with gorgeous products from the Crafty Meraki store. The beautiful flower dies are from Crafty Meraki and are called Chloe Meraki Flora Para-Dies. They were super easy to color and make such a statement on this card!

Sometimes it’s the totally unexpected creation that just grabs your attention. This card is one of them for me.

~Copics~
Greens: G94, YG03, YG11, YG21
Pinks: R22, RV42, R11, R00, R000
