Saturday Showcase | Simply Sweet: Blessed

By | General, Saturday Showcase | 2 Comments

Happy Saturday! Thanksgiving is right around the corner. We are setting the mood with Simply Sweet: Blessed.

 

 

 

“Simply Sweet:  Blessed is my favorite set in this series…I adore the tiny sunflower images.  Mixing and combining different shades of yellows and earth tones is a delight with this set and adding in a few florals from other stamp sets is a fun way to add more character to this set as well.”

 

 

 


Rebecca’s Tips | Create Your Own Wreath

By | Design Team Tips, General | 2 Comments

Join Rebecca Luminarias today as she shares ways to create your own wreath.

“I’ve been using a lot of wreath images this year for my holiday cards and tags.  In the last releases, Ink to Paper has put out some beautiful stamps with which to create them.  I thought it might be fun to try and make my own version, too, and after picking through all of the sets I have, I decided on a leafy branch die from Framing Florals was just perfect for the task!  In today’s DT Tips, I’ll share how I’ve assembled the die cuts to create 3-dimensional wreaths for tags, cards, and gift toppers.  I hope you’ll join me on my blog for this fun DIY project!
