Altenew | Succulents Thank You

Cards, Thank You Cards

Hi crafty friends! I’m popping in to share a thank you card that I created using stamps from Altenew, as well as some Distress Inks.

Of course there’s a how-to video to share. You can watch it below, or over on the Zed Squared Crafts YouTube channel.

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet. I’m in the middle of a big move so I’m still getting settled into my new house. I will be back again soon with lots more card making how-to videos. In the meantime, thank you so much for all your support!

Simon Says Stamp | You are Pawesome Valentine

Cards, Love note

Hi everyone. I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend! Thanks so much for dropping by today.

I’m sharing a whimsical valentine’s day card using stamps from Simon Says Stamp. As always, there is a how to video so you can follow along. You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I wanted to create a special love note that didn’t necessarily require a new stamp set. I love using my stamps all through the year, so this was a perfect excuse to pull out the adorable You are Pawesome stamp set.

That’s it for today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Until next time,

Lawn Fawn | Non-Traditional Valentine’s Card

Cards, Love note, Masculine Card

Happy Thursday! I hope your week is coming to a beautiful close. Where I live we’ve been getting snow all week. It’s a true winter wonderland and I love it!

For today’s card, love is in the air. I used stamps from Lawn Fawn and a blue colour scheme to create a non-traditional valentine’s day card. I think this one would be great for any guys in your life.

You can watch the how-to video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I thought the blue went perfectly with the stamp set. I even incorporated some sparkly paper for some extra razzle dazzle. I tend to steer away from anything sparkly when I make more masculine cards, but I think you can get away with a little extra pizzazz on valentine’s day cards.

Colour Me! Challenge – Be Joyful

Cards, Christmas Card, Holiday Card

Welcome! Today is a sad day because it’s the Colour Me Challenge’s final challenge. This week marks challenge #100, so it’s time to wrap up. This week is a monochromatic challenge using sky blue.

CMCC100

I of course have a how-to video to share with you, but before I get to that I’d like to just tell you how the Colour Me challenge brightened my life.

If you’re a regular follower of my blog, or YouTube channel, you’ll know that I’m fairly new to the crafting game. About two years ago, I had been experimenting with cardmaking and wanted to start playing along with the CMCC. The CMCC has always been a place of positivity and support and it gave me enough confidence to spread my wings and participate in other areas of the online cardmaking community. It was also the first ever design team that I contributed to. My experience with the CMCC has inevitably coloured the way I have continued on my cardmaking journey,  and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have participated in such a positive voice.

Now, onto my card for this week. As with most monochromatic cards, I like to use the colour sparingly so that it doesn’t overpower the card. You can see how I created my card below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for dropping by this week. I hope to see you playing with us over at the Challenge.

Winter Shaker Scene

Cards, Christmas Card

Hi Everyone! Today I’m sharing a winter shaker scene card using stamps from Penny Black.

Of course I have a how-to video to share with you. As well, by popular demand, I’m also going to share a short video showing you how I set up my Silhouette studio file to cut the front panel and frame on my Silhouette Portrait. You can watch both videos below, or over on my YouTube channel.

My Silhouette video is very quick so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments or by sending me an e-mail.

That’s it for today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
