It’s A Boy Banner Handmade Card

Here’s a simple card idea for a new baby. You can easily change the colors to match for a girl, or even to match the desired nursery colors! All you need is a 1″ circle punch, some twine, a baby stamp, and another baby themed sticker or stamp that you can cut out for an embellishment on the banner.

Scalloped Corner Notecard

How often have you wanted to put a card in the mail, and then you realize that you have 1/2 hour at the most to make the card, write inside, and address the envelope? Ok, so maybe that never happens to you, but it seems to happen to me several times a year :). Sometimes the rush helps me make a very fast card, and this one is very fast!

I used plain cardstock, then found a matching piece of glitter cardstock. For the corner, I punched it with a scallop punch, stamped a greeting, and placed mini adhesive pearls in the scallops. That was it! You can see the details below in the video:

St. Patrick’s Day Simplicity Card

Here’s an easy St. Patrick’s Day card that is fast to make! It uses heart shapes with a hand cut stem. These would be so cute to hand to your hostess or guests, or simply made a tiny bit smaller and used for place cards at your table!

My mother was from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and even though she’s no longer here on earth, the cut out shape of the shamrock in the background reminds me of a pin she made me when I was very young. We were supposed to wear something green to school for St. Patrick’s Day, and I didn’t have anything green to wear. So she took a white pipe cleaner, and fashioned a shamrock for me, mixed food coloring to dye it green, and placed a small safety pin in the back so I would have my “something green” to wear to school :). Happy memories…

Embossed Banner Thank You Card

This is a very easy card that I make backwards — just because I find a piece of ribbon first, and then find matching paper. The ribbon I used on this card was an end piece that I just wanted to use up, and thankfully I found a perfect gingham paper to match it. For the base, I used Kraft paper, and then I made the banners in cream paper and dry embossed it with an embossing folder.  You can see all the details in the video below. Thanks for stopping by :).

Stamped Cluster Handmade Thank You Card

This is a fun way to use those stamp sets that have similar images in different sizes! It’s much easier than it looks because instead of stamping each image one by one, we’re going to make the design on the acrylic block before we ever start. I’ve been trying to use up my tons of scrap papers, so I did a little wrinkling on a paper that already had some issues :). Join me below for all of the instructions.
