Versatile Cardmaking using one Product
- Featuring Fancy Pants Designs -

I believe all of us have bought products that we aren't able to use throughout the year. Maybe they're seasonal or maybe they only fit a certain style. What if I told you there are products out there that are so versatile, you can stretch them and use them in many ways, for different styles of cards and seasons? Well, today I'm sharing with you two totally different cards using the same product. This is the first post on a series that I think could help you achieve a much more versatile and enjoyable cardmaking process, saving you time and money along the way. Today I am featuring a kind of product everyone should have in their stash, a kit.

Splashes of Color + Winner
Spray Inks & Digital Stamps

Thanks to all who joined our second stamp release last week! We always love reading your comments and learning which new digital stamp sets are your favorite! Our giveaway winner has been picked... The lucky commenter who won a new stamp set of her choice is: Pamellia. Congratulations! Please use the contact form to claim your prize.

All these cards were made using new stamp sets from our March release: Dear Friend, Dream , and Patience . All three sets include gorgeous floral images that can be customized, so I resized them and printed them at around 10 cm. wide on white cardstock and cut each image to fit an A2 card. Next I sprayed each piece with ink sprays, layering at least two different colors. Tip : I used a regular inkjet printer for these cards so I used a heat gun to dry t

We have a blog hop and giveaway today so we hope you can join the celebration for a chance to win a new digital stamp set of your choice! I made three monochromatic cards for your inspiration, using several images from our new release... On my first card I used the set  You are the Sweetest . I printed and fussy cut this sweet kitty, wrapped ribbon around it and added a big bow. I also printed one of the sentiments and cut a banner. (This image is so detailed and pretty.) I created the foiled lace background using a die cut and a hot melt adhesive sheet, which I ran through my Minc machine. I also foiled the edges of my card base
