Hi everyone, I've created another video post for Expressions Craft. I used the Flora stamp set, one of my favorite stamp sets because it has 5 different floral images and 4 sentiments.
Using the small floral stamp, I repeatedly stamped it on white cardstock, then colored them with Copic Markers. Then I added some flowers on top to create a 3 dimensional appearance. Please check out my process video. I'm still a little nervous creating videos, but hope I am getting better!!
Using left over scraps from the above die cuts, I added Gold foiled circles to the center of each medallion.
To create the banner pieces, I die cut black cardstock, then die cut pink and blue papers to fit. Once assembled, I used molding paste through a stencil for dimension. Next, I punched strips of Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to fit the top of each banner.
Adhere tulle to each banner, then add the medallions on top, alternating the colors. Then I placed the baby buggies on top.
Assemble the banner with brads and add tulle to use as a hanger.
As graduations near, it's time to create a card for the special graduates in in your life.
I've used the Graduation Cap stamp, inking it with both Memento London Fog and Tuxedo Black Inks. Once stamped, I fussy cut the cap, matted it on black cardstock and fussy cut it again. The sentiment is from the Enjoy Your Retirement stamp set, which I thought was perfect for a graduation card.
The background is the Geometric 20 Foilables Pattern Pack Toner Sheets onto which I fused Silver Bullet Heat Transfer Foil. Look at the different colors embedded in the foil!! I placed the foiled sheet on a black card and then added a black die cut sign for the center onto which I popped the graduation cap. Then I inserted the sentiment slightly under the graduation cap.

Hi everyone, I'm thrilled to be showcasing my first card as a member of the Creative Vision Stamps Design Team. I've created a retirement card using stamps from Creative Vision Stamps.
I began by creating a background using a stencil from Expressionscrafts along with Fireworks! spray inks from Imagine. I die cut a hole in the lower corner and stamped the phrase from the Enjoy Your Retirement clear stamp set on the bottom layer. This stamp set 5 stamps and I've used 3 of them on this card.
After matting the panel with green and black cardstock, I realized I had a huge smudge on my background! No worries, though, as I would be covering this spot with my stamped image.
I stamped the image and colored it with Copic Markers. For more depth, I fussy cut it and matted it with kraft cardstock. Then, I restamped and recolored the lizard only as I wanted some dimension to him. I cut him out again, inked around him and placed him atop the main image which slightly overlapped the sentiment in the circle.

Die cut Lavender/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to create a lattice basket using Spellbinders dies. Die cut Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and adhere the layers together to create the basket.
Die cut 2 sets of flowers from Jade/Gold, Blush/Gold, Ruby/Gold, and Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Papers. Cut the stems from the Jade/Gold die cuts and adhere to the flowers. Add a second flower on top for additional dimension. Die cut leaves from Jade/Gold.
White wash a wood sign and allow to dry. Use Beacon Adhesive to adhere the flowers and leaves to the sign.
Adhere the lattice basket over the flowers, gluing the sides and bottom. Form the flowers and leaves to fit the sign.
Hi everyone, I'm on the Just For Fun Blog today using some great stamps from the store to create my card.
I know Christmas was 4 months ago, however, I discovered this Christmas Lantern stamp and wanted to use it.
I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then fussy cut it. Next, I used Memento Markers to color the image.
Die cutting 2 layers of red cardstock, I placed them atop another panel of red which was added to a card. The Lantern was then popped onto the card. "tis the season from the Sentiment 1 stamp set was stamped, matted and added below the Lantern.
I had this amazing Poppy Stamps background die which is a perfect size for creating cards. Using the die, I die cut Fuscia/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. It die cut the foil amazingly well. Look at all those details!!
I matted the die cut panel on the reverse side so the gold foil would show.
Taking the die cut script hello, I placed it on white card, then added a label around it.
My next card uses Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and the same die; however, this time, I used the die to emboss rather than die cut the panel. I then added a die cut flourish from Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, adding it to the left corner.
After matting the panel with white cardstock, I wrapped it with ribbon. The panel was added to the card with foam adhesives. HELLO was then die cut separately from Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and added to die cut ovals.
Hi everyone, I've used etchallⓇ dip 'n etch to etch a vase that will be used as a party centerpiece/ decoration.
I began by using etchallⓇ dip 'n etch liquid, submerging the vase completely in the dip 'n etch. Then I simply waited 15 minutes for the etching and removed the vase. Since dip 'n etch is reusable, just pour it back to the container. Rinse the vase and pat dry.
Adhere a strip of ribbon around the top of the vase. The vase sits nicely in a metal basket.
For fun, create pinwheels from Rinea Foils. Using flowers and brads, adhere the foiled pinwheels to straws. Create as many as necessary to fill the vase.
I think these would look lovely for birthday parties and more.
To create the envelopes, use the large Pour Handmold, assemble with the Envelope Template. Place the Pour Handmold in water. Add torn strips of paper into a blender with 2 cups of water and blend.
Pour the slurry into the Pour Handmold and swirl the slurry in the mold. You want to be sure the slurry covers the entire template.
Remove the mold from the water, unstrap mold, remove the envelope template and place the cover screen (it looks like window screen) on top of the molded paper. Use a sponge to remove the water from the paper.
Once most of the water has been absorbed, remove the cover screen and template and place a Couch Sheet on top. The Couch Sheet will absorb more water. Flip the screen/paper/couch sheet sandwich over to remove additional water from the back.
And this is the result. Fun shaped envelopes.
Decorate the envelopes as desired. I added flowers and leaves and a sweet sentiment to each.
Just remember to be a little gentle when using a pokey tool to create a hole for the brad as I found the paper a little delicate.
I think these envelopes make the perfect gift, don't you? The envelopes are big enough for a handmade card, or perhaps simply add a gift card inside.
