Concord & 9th | One Layer Card

Any occasion, Cards

Hi friends! I hope spring has sprung where you live, because where I live, right on Georgian Bay, most of our snow has melted and we had quite a few days above zero this week. It’s hard not to have a huge smile on my face while the sun is shinning and I’m out with my pups, Zip and Zoë (a.k.a. Zed²).

For today’s card share, I created a simple one-layer card. I’ve been dying to use my new Tree Ring Background stamp from Concord and 9th, so I just had to make a card that truly showcased how lovely it is.

I have a how-to video to share. You can watch it below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I kept this card very simple, to let the detail of the background stamp shine. Of course I had to add little razzle dazzle, so I did that with a few Sparkling Clear sequins (the “little things”), and some clear Wink of Stella for good measure.

Simon Says Stamp | Have a Lovely Day

Any occasion, Cards

Hi Friends! Spring is in the air on the Zed Squared Crafts blog today. I’m ready to move into springtime, so I created this card to get me in the mood. I used stamps and inks that I got from a recent haul from Simon Says Stamp that I just couldn’t wait to break in.

As usual, I have a how-to video to share. You can watch it below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I’m so happy with how this card turned out. It did exactly as I hoped, and was a breath of fresh spring air.

To the Happy Couple | Neutral Wedding Card

Cards, Love note, Masculine Card

Hi Friends! Great news–this week my YouTube channel reached 1000(!) subscribers. I still can’t believe it myself! I am so encouraged by everyone’s support and kind words. Thank you so much to all my readers and viewers.

In case you missed my birthday haul video a couple weeks ago, I mentioned that my life is very busy at the moment, so hopefully you can forgive me for fewer posts and videos. Once everything is back to normal, I hope to get back into a more regular posting routine.

In the meantime, today I have a neutral wedding card to share with you. I used supplied from Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn to create this card. You can watch the how-to video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

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,
