What A Beautiful Day designed by Anna-Karin

Have you ever created a card using acetate? I fell in love with the whimsical feel that the circle die layered over the clear acetate created. And combined with the soft neutral color scheme, this card is sure to bring a smile to anyone.


Anna-Karin shares some great tips and tricks, so click here and I will take you over to her blog Layers Of Ink so you can take notes. It’s time to break out your favorite dies and stamps and create one of your own handmade treasures!

You Are card designed by Betty Wright

Would you believe that this adorable card was designed using no patterned paper whatsoever? This one is all about the stamps! I love how Betty stamped the front of the base with berrylicious ink using a striped background stamp on white paper and then stamped the berrylicious tag with a Swiss Dot background stamp on berrylicious cardstock and Sweet Tooth pigment ink.

You Are Fabulous

Now that you, too, have fallen in love with this beautiful card, just click here and I will take you over to visit Betty where she shares step-by-step instructions. Keep up the good work spreading those smiles one card at a time!
