Tulips are a blooming
Timeless Tulips is a great set…order both for happy creating

I love this set, create beautiful cards, book marks and any paper crafter ‘s dream. I use it for get well soon cards, sympathy, birthday and just hello. The card shown is just 8-1/2 by 11 card stock, cut in half the long way, cut at 4-1/4 inches. This makes it 11 inches long by 4-1/4 inches wide. Score at 5-1/2 inches, fold in half. I next stamped the leaves on a piece of basic white…note, whisper white has a new name

I used cherry cobbler ink on whisper white and stamped Tulip heads, punched out with punch, Tulip Builder punch.

Four Greeting Cards in a Flash Part 1 of 2

Yes, the above is the beginning of a four cards. You will use this technique over and over. I took a 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock, this is mint macaron, I used the 2020-2022 in colors to stamp. In colors are inks added every year and only last 2 years, so at the end of 2022 June, you can no longer get the ink, ink refills, markers or paper in these colors. Yes, I love these colors and the 2019-2021 colors will be gone in 2021 June…eek, only a few more months.

The In colors 2020-2022 are cinnamon cider, Just Jade, Bumble Bee, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight.

This is why I love Stampin Up!, these colors come in cardstock, markers, ink and ink refills. You can match quickly and easy to make a great card. I used the Positive Thoughts stamp set to create the paper.

I used all the colors but Cinnamon Cider…looks cool doesn’t it. I cut them into 4″ x 5-1/4″ sections and you are ready to have a layer for you card fronts…. You made your own DSP = Designer Series Paper.

Card base will be 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, a standard sheet of paper cut in half. This is the base for a A2 card. Yes, A2 cards are the go to in handmade cards….not as big as the ones in the big box store but made with love and time.

Tuesday Creating Fun with Arthritis

The day begins with lining up what to do? Yikes, so many things to get done before play time. Dishes and laundry. Yes, than figuring out dinner. Does not seem like much but live with arthritis is no fun. You can not do what you want to do when you want to do it. The body just hurts and does not move on call.

Here is a card I worked on…but I have to make Birthday, Sympathy and Get Well Card.

This is a technique I love to do. You use crumb cake card stock, stamp with black memento ink. You color with white water color pencil and than blend with blenders. Blenders are so cool cause you spread the color without water. I than used pink centers. I fussy cut the little extras and put on with dimensionals. The stamp design was from last years Sale a Bration. The stamp set can be any stamp.
