Here is the card I made...
  
I  made a really cute missing you card! I love the really soft pastel colors in the inspiration photo and just new I wanted to do some ink blending for my focal image background using some distress inks and that is exactly what I did. 
 
 
 
I cut the design paper using the new Fancy Frames dies for the pink scalloped layer and the polka dotted layer as well as the top layer. 
 
I stamped the panda from the Panda Pals Stamp set on watercolor paper using versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I colored in the panda with Tombow watercolor markers. For the smallest inked piece I used Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio distress inks for soft background piece.  I stamped both of the greetings from the same stamp set as well. I wrapped the pink and white bakers twine before tying a bow at the top and sprinkled some pastel dots to pull it all together. 
 
 
 
Here are the CDD products I used:

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…

Happy Owl-idays!

Hello, everyone! Rachel here with you today!

I'm loving the cute little critters that are going to be coming up in a new release and I think you're going to love them, too. I have a clean and simple creation using a new owl image for you today.


I started my card by masking off a small strip on the right hand side of the card and then blending purple and pink inks into the strip to create an ombre effect. After it had dried, I used a stencil and some texture paste to create my falling snow. I carefully removed my masking paper and then let the texture paste dry.

While I waited, I colored my little owl image and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut him out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I hate fussy cutting?) When I was sure the card was dry, I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment and stamped it in a bold, black ink. I used some foam tape to adhere my little own beside my sentiment and my card was done!

Thanks for joining me today!
