**VIDEO** Magnolia Tag Thank You Card

20140804_110441

Happy Monday! If you are looking for a super simple yet elegant card, today’s card should give you an inspiration. I got to use a brand-new stamp set from Altenew called “Magnolias for Her” – it is an outlined flower stamp set with awesome font sentiments and all sorts of images. Just fell in love with it when I saw it!


I was going to do a super subtle background for the card, but decided to add a bit more depth to it by doing a “double-layer stamping.” I got the idea from pillow cases I saw from a magazine a while ago – i think this is a great way to highlight the outlined images on a card.

After stamping the background, I added a tag to highlight an image that flows with the background nicely. Colored the image with Copic markers and added a sentiment – the card is done! Check out the video above to see how I put this card together.

Today’s post is short and quick. I am in the middle of packing and cleaning up our home – we will be moving this Saturday and it will take few days for me to unpack everything and start creating in my brand-new studio. I will make sure to post my unpacking and setting up progress here next week so you can follow. Thanks for stopping by!!

Another Hello Card, Another Copic Gradation

Hey guys! Just popping in quickly to share another hello card using the technique I did yesterday. Lots of people loved the card so I thought I would share another version to give you more inspiration. This is a simple one-layer card featuring couple of dies from Top Dog Dies. And I am sharing a sneak peak for the upcoming new release! Woot woot! Check out the beautiful border die cut used on the bottom of the card. Don’t you just love it? This one is called the Laurel Lace Border Die (available May 9th) and it is really delicate and beautiful. I used couple of Copic markers to add a mint, blue, and dark green color to the card. Copic numbers used on this border die is BG32, BG45, and BG49. I think the BG49 might’ve been too dark, so if you have something lighter than this one, I would say give it a try and see if it would blend well. (see, sometimes I make mistakes too!)

For this lovely sentiment, I used the Vintage Alphabet Die from Top Dog Dies and cut out “hello” greeting. I used B97 Copic marker to add colors to the cut out letters. I wanted something deep and soft to go along with the gradation technique I did on the bottom of the card. It adds a nice soft but dark sentiment that pops out nicely. I didn’t even use a stamp set in this card! You can create an amazing looking card just with the dies you have on hand and with a few markers. Make sure to mark your calendar for May 9th, so you won’t miss Top Dog Dies’ May Release!! Thanks for stopping by! Have a beautiful day~!
