Uniquely Creative – Rose Gold Foil Hello

Card Size : 4 1/8” x 5 7/8” Kraft Top Folding

Steps –

  1. Die cut with the cross-stitched circle die with white cardstock. This will cut the inner part of the circle and the outer cross stitched outline piece.
  2. Ink blend with Distress Inks Victoria Velvet, Tattered Rose & Seedless Preserves in Oxide Inks with a mini round ink blending tool. Start from lightest colour to darkest and work your way back. TIP : Use a post it not to protect your fingers and not leave any finger marks on your blended panel. Set aside to dry.
  3. Stamp the wreath with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then die cut with the coordinating dies.
  4. With the toner sheets die cut the hello die. I have used WOW! Fab Foils in the Rose Gold and run that through my mini minc machine.
  5. I start adhering all the pieces down with a liquid pen and foam adhesives.
  6. I finished the card off with Rose Gold sequins from Hand made by Brittney lee.

Hi All, I am very excited to be part of this very speacial Catherine Pooler release. I hope you enjoy not only this hop but ALL the fabulous new products.

For today’s card creations I have created two cards with the one ink blended panel.

I first heat embossed the backgrounds stamp with white embossing powder on white Catherine Pooler cardstock. I have ink blended with Mardi Gras, Suede Shoes, Grape Crush, Juniper Mist ink with Ranger mini ink blending tool.

Each panel has been foam mounted on either a white & black top folding card bases.

With the Juniper Mist ink & Grape Crush I have stamped the sentiments with the Seasonal Sentiment & Borders Stampset.

Both cards are very simple but with these inked panels it adds so much vibrancy to the card.

Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Easter Cards



Hi All and welcome to today’s blog post for the Craftie Cafe online store.  As you can see by my card creations I am focusing on Easter. Today I have used mainly Lawn Fawn  products as well as Distress Oxide Inks. I have done a very light water colouring on the bunnies but nothing complicated as I made these in bulk.

The most tedious part of the whole card process was the Lawn Fawn Quilted backdrop where I poke all the wholes out to reveal the colour cardstock I used as a card base.

I then heavily foam mounted little rectangles behind each quilted die as you will see in my You Tube video tutorial. I did not hold back with my foam mount adhesive through out these cards lol



Just how sweet are the Heart stack-able dies both the Lacey and stitched?  I love how these Lawn Fawn dies are well co-ordinated to nest within each other.

I colour coordinated the ink and the cardstock as I wanted to keep these simple yet sweet and able to make these in bulk. To do this I used the Ranger Distress Oxide Inks and ranger cardstock.

I plan to send these out to the in-laws for Easter as I wont’ be seeing them during this Easter time.

Do you send Easter Cards out? I would love to know what type of cards you make for Easter? I have lately to gravitated towards cute and sweet cards especially in the past couple of years where as before hand I use to make lots of florals or religious base Easter Cards.


Thanks a million for stopping by.

Happy Paper Crafting
