Happy llama handmade card.

Today, I am sharing a cute framed llama all occasion handmade card.


Sentiment:  You make me smile.

For this card, I used a scored kraft color card base and a die-cut image panel to feature the framed llama image.  I think this card is great for most occasions or just because.


Supplies:  Artist Tierra You Make Me Smile digital stamp, Neenah cardstock, My Creative Time dies, Copic markers, foam tape, Sizzix Big Shot machine and Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Thanks for stopping by.

Watercolor poppy flowers and tutorial.

Today, I am sharing a watercolor card with poppy flowers, stems and buds.


Sentiment:  Hello friend.

These pretty flower stamped images were brought to life with watercolor pencils.  I like that it is perfectly imperfect.  The sentiment was heat embossed onto a vellum panel.
I incorporated two of the newest kits from Unity.  The flowers pieces were all separate images.  I decided to make a poppy plant with them.

Here is a quick video tutorial for these poppies.


And here it is a little closer:

A love themed floral card with dreamy accents.


Sentiment:  You make my heart sing.

This was stamped with the newest Unity releases.  I made a wreath frame from flowers and branches and then added the sentiment.  To soften the look, I added a dreamy trim with white blending.
This is great for a loved one, anniversary or Valentine's Day.

Here is a video tutorial for this floral card.

This was stamped with a holiday kit, but it can totally work for birthdays.  I used the stars, added a birthday die-cut sentiment and mixed media watercolor to get this masculine look.

Hello, it's Gaylynn here with a project for the blog hop with CardMaker Magazine and Spellbinders.

I am featuring the lovely Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for September 2017.


Sentiment:  Happy YOU day.

For this design, I used patterned paper for the background.  I wanted a soft look, so the intricate die-cut details are in white and in turquoise.  I trimmed this beautiful die-cut to fit my A2 size card.

The full list will be available on the CardMaker blog in case anyone gets lost.
