More fun creations with the September HSN products from Diamond Press

Saturday, September 19, 2020

 Hello friends! Tonight I'm posting some of my designs with Diamond Press's Autumn Window Foliage die set and the Rustic Wreath Shaker card set.

The Glitter paper really makes the pumpkin pop on this card.

These cards were fun and easy to create with. This die could be used for everyday occasion thank you cards.

These leaves would also be really pretty done with the inlay technique by using all the scraps.

You don't have to create shaker cards with this set. It makes great cards by cutting the wreath image and adhering to the base of the card with foam squares.

These shaker cards were fun and easy to create thanks to the contents included in the kit.

Unfortunately the Autumn Window Foliage dies set has sold out on HSN but the Wreath Shaker set is still available if you are interested.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Haunted House dies from Diamond Press

Monday, August 17, 2020

 Hello friends! Just popping in to share some fun designs that I created with the new Diamond Press Haunted House dies. These dies are simply amazing! It's a shame they sold out so quickly on HSN but here's some looks for those who were able to snag them!


For my first card, I decided to use the stamps and dies to create a fun 3D background collage with my sentiment as the focal point.

Next for this house, I inked up a starry sky background and added the tree and fence die cut from the Halloween Pop Up set.

For the next card, I used some patterned paper as a fun background and created this card around the colors of the papers.

For my final card, I just love purple and lime green together so I thought it would make a fun card!

I can't wait to see what others are creating with this fun set! I'll definitely be having a friend over to craft some of these before Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by!

Anna Griffin Tea Cup Pop up cards

Thursday, August 6, 2020

Hello friends! I know it's been a while. I hope you're all doing well through this difficult time. I've tried to keep myself busy with as many craft projects as possible which is why I haven't been sharing on my blog as much.

Today I wanted to share some cards I made using the Tea Cup Card kit from Anna Griffin. This kit is so beautiful!

For this card, I thought it would be a great technique to emboss the card base with an embossing folder. I love the way the design looks!

For the inside, I wanted to add a butterfly so I cut this cute die twice and layered it with a foam dot. So pretty! If you want to learn to make this card, Anna did a Charm school video on her blog featuring similar pieces from the kit here. She walks you through each step to create your own pop-up card. She also shows other advance cards using the kit that are just stunning.

For this card I used a die behind the sentiment and flowers to make the front of the card stand out.

and filled my tea cup inside with a variety of blooms.

Another fab front with a die from Anna's library of designs. There are so many now you can really mix and match!

and I added another sweet butterfly to the flowers

I kept it fairly simple for this card.

But filled the tea-cup to the brim with flowers.

I had some flocked cardstock tucked away and I thought it would be perfect for the tea cup dies.

I love how the cup turned out with the embossing and flock. So delicate and pretty.

My last card features a little inking of the teacup on the inside.

It looks so delicate and fun right?

Thanks for visiting today. I promise to have more action here going forward. Aren't we all just trying to figure out our new lifestyles? 

I'll have some fun news coming soon too!

2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Friday, May 22, 2020

Hello! I'm so glad to be linking up for today's 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  I love all the coffee/tea inspired inspiration this hop brings.  

I'm going fancy with today's card that I created using all Anna Griffin products.  My favorite part of the design is the napkin die. I doubled it up in 2 colors and create a little tea time scene. 

Anna's Teacup cardstock is the perfect spring palette to pair the die and the favorite tea embellishments. 

If you haven't done the hop yet, the link is at the top of this post. Grab a cuppa and enjoy!

Have a creative day!


Soft Hues Metallic Layers II

Tuesday, April 21, 2020

Hello friend! I am back today sharing a few of my designs with Anna Griffin's new Soft Hues Metallic Layers II cardstock. I looooove this cardstock for my dies. It helps make some beautiful cards. 
Here's a look at some of the designs I made with this set.

I love the soft colors in this cardstock collect and they look beautiful as die cuts. Also, look at the embossing detail on the blue.

Anna's Castle cardstock and Card Making Compendium dies are a great way to build layers on your cards.

Anna's flocked cardstock also looks really pretty behind the soft hue colors.

I've linked back these products to Anna's webpage if you're interested in purchasing.

Thank you for spending some time here today!

Springtime Collage Toppers

Saturday, April 18, 2020

I know that Easter has passed but I did not want to forget to share these lovely Springtime collage toppers from Anna Griffin. The layering and details make it easy to create cards quickly that look like you've spent alot of time making them. Here's a look at what I created with them.

For this card, I started with a flocked cardstock base. That cardstock is my all-time fave and I seriously hoard it. Next, I used Anna's gold Foil Flourishes 2 corner stickers and mounted them using Therm-O-Web's 3D foam squares which are excellent for layering on the flock.

Next, I added the collage topper and a few more flourishes, Mini favorite flower stickers and finished with a bow.

Layering 2 different dies (Mini Frame Dies & Reticulated Border Frame Dies) cut with 2 different cardstock colors can add color and interest behind your collage topper.

I like to use a lot of layers when I create my cards. There are 5 on this card.

Cutting out the center of a card base and adding a contrasting pattern of cardstock with 3D foam squares can really add dimension to your design. I also cut the center of this Mini Frame die out to create a window.

I've linked many of the products I used to create these cards back to Anna's webpage if you are interested in purchasing.

Thank you so much for spending your time here today!


Anna Griffin Trimmings Cut and Emboss folders

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Hello friends! Today I am sharing some of my designs with Anna griffin's Trimmings cut and Emboss folders featured again on HSN yesterday. 

I love that you can layer these folders for a fun look. For this card, I used two of them and a floral border sticker.

This one has 3 layers of the same folder.

For this card I turned the layer vertically and added another floral border stip and sentiment.  

Here's another vertical card. The border really adds to the design of the card.

I love using the color purple in my designs. I love how this one turned out.

If you'd like to pick these up, you can order them from Anna Griffin's website here
