A Heartwarming Friendship Card by Mimi!

Hi and welcome back! Today we have another inspiration by Mimi to share with you!

I just love the idea of this floral decorated chalk board like frame to set the stage for the heartwarming sentiment!

She stamped out the floral image from the So Blessed stamp set 4 times, colored with Copic markers and die cut them using the Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

The frame was die cut using woodgrain type paper and ink blended with Gathered Twig Distress Oxide, splattered with Distress ink Walnut Stain.

Her sentiment was white heat embossed with a little splatter of white ink for the extra detail!

Thank you so much Mimi for sharing this stunning friendship card with us!

A Colorful Mini Slimline Card With Guest Designer Michelle!

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by! Our Guest Designer Michelle Short is sharing a delightful rainbow hue mini slimline card over at her blog today!

Her card features the We Are Right For Each Other stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

She stamped out some adorable images from this set and Copic Colored them before die cutting them out with the coordinating dies.

She also picked out some words to form this lovely sentiment. I love how these words stamp to fit perfectly onto the puzzle pieces!

For the background, She blended Distress Inks in rainbow hues on to a panel of white cardstock and spritzed water on top for the extra texture.

Once dried, it was adhered to the mini slimline card base with foam tape and then the images added on top with more foam tape.

I love the wide contrasting black border which I think really brings out the rainbow colors!

Thank you so much Michelle, your card is super adorable! We are thrilled to have you Guest Design for us for the past few weeks!

Adorable Mini Slimline and Tags with Guest Designer Michelle!

Happy Wednesday crafty friends! We are super excited as Michelle Short will be Guest Designing for us in the coming few weeks!

For today, Michelle made an adorable mini slimline and tags featuring the new Inseparable stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I personally love clean and simple design and I love what she’s created here!

For her mini slimline, she die cut a heart to set the scene and ink blended it with Distress Inks. The family of cuddly bears are from the Inseparable stamp set.

The sentiment ‘Special Delivery’ was white heat embossed on black cardstock and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. She simply finished it off with some clear gems.

For her tag, she Copic coloured the images and added Crystal Glaze to the purple hearts on the mini envelopes. The sentiment ‘sending warm hugs’, from Unity and Friendship Quotes, is also white heat embossed on black cardstock.

If you look closely, I really like how the coordinating die-cut for this sentiment cuts close to the texts. She then finished off the tag with some iridescent bubbles and twine.

I just love the nice clean looks of these projects!

Thank you Michelle for your beautiful inspirations!

An Adorable Shadow Box Card by Mimi!

Hello everyone! Mimi is back today with a super adorable shadow box inspiration!

She custom made her own shadow box measuring about 5 3/4 long to set the scene. She also made a couple of one inch wide tabs to fit into her box.

She then adhered her beautifully colored critters from the Inseparable stamp set on the different tabs to create the three dimensional look!

She added a bunch of accessory images such as the muffin, coffees from Rabbit Cafe. I also love the scattered flowers and how she used the dance floor image from Fun Night Out as the picnic blanket – so clever!

The sentiment on the front of the box is from Unity and Friendship Quotes. The hanging banner flags on the tree (also from Inseparable) gives her card the perfect finishing touch!

Thank you Mimi for your charming shadow box card! It is super sweet!
