July 4th Jar of Love Cards

Happy Birthday America and Happy July 4th to yo all!

This card uses the Pinewood Planks dynamic embossing folder, and I just love the rustic background it creates.  I made this card to accompany a hostess gift at a July 4th celebration.


 The jars are from the Jars of Love stamp set and die cut with the coordinating Everyday Jars thinlits.  The jars were stamped in Memento Black and die cut.  The lids were embossed with copper embossing powder and also die cut.


I added a Blueberry Bushel bow to the side to soften the card a bit.

The sentiment is die cut from the Celebrate You thinlits set.  After I shot the video, I decided to go over the sentiment with Wink of Stella.

Touches of Texture Wedding Card

I just love this wedding card.  It was created with the Tufted embossing folder,  silver embossing powder, and the beautiful Touches of Texture stamp set.  The monochromatic color scheme is a simplistic, yet elegant touch.  Although the pictures look like the stamping is black, it is actually silver embossed.

The Tufted embossing folder, which is perfect for so many occasions, adds such a soft touch to this card.


The stamped image was embossed with silver embossing powder, and the flowers and leaves were colored in with clear Wink of Stella.

The inside sentiment was also embossed using silver embossing powder.  The sentiment comes from the Special Celebrations stamp set.

Colored Lovely Floral Embossing Folder Card

I love embossing, and this embossing folder takes embossing up a notch.  The raised image was gently "colored" by  lightly sponging the raised images.  The technique is super quick and easy, and it add such a soft look to the card.  Check out  the second example of this technique below.


The large flower was colored using the new Grapefruit Grove ink pad.  By gently rubbing the dauber, you can build up as much color as you want.  It's best to start out light and go add more color if you want the image darker. The smaller flowers were inked using the new Pineapple Punch.  The leaves were colored using the new Granny Apple Green.

There's a video at the end of the post with step by step instructions.

To finish the card off, I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings set using Granny Apple Green and then attached a piece of the 1/8" Grapefruit Grove grosgrain ribbon.

This second example of the technique uses the Layered Leaved embossing folder.

The leaves were sponged using Mint Macaron ink.

The sentiment is a greeting from the Beautiful Day stamp set which was masked so only the "Happy Birthday" was stamped.   It is layered using Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron.  The final touch was the addition of the three Mint Macaron  Faceted Dot.

For step by step instructions, please see the video below.  NOTE: If you are seeing this post via an email notification, the video may not appear.  In that case, you can see the video HERE.

Quick Thinking of You Card

This is another card that comes together pretty quickly and uses DSP as the background.  When you're short on time, reach for a piece of DSP to fill in your background, and your card will come together in no time at all!  Although it's a quick card, it's also a beautiful card.  No one will ever know how simple the card was to make!

The card base is Lemon Lime Twist, and it is separated from the DSP, which is Calypso Coral, by a tiny piece of Shaded Spruce.  The sharp contrast adds a nice"punch" to the card.

The sentiment is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist -- the stamp is from the Rooted in Nature set.  The sentiment and the mat are die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits.

I made a double bow from some retired 1/8" Calypso Coral organza.  I placed it at an angle for a whimsical look.

To see how the card was put together, click on the video below.  NOTE: If you are viewing this post from an email notification, the video may not appear.  In that case, you can view the video HERE.
