You Warm My Heart...

Quick post today, just for fun!

I made this little card using an image From the Heart Stamps
Love Faith's images and creating with them

The image is called Love You Mouse and I just wanted an excuse to color
I have been sick most of the week and haven't had any energy to create until today


After printing the image, I colored it with the following Copic markers: BV00, BV02, BV04, C0, C1, C3, R00, R11, V12, V15, V17, YR00, YR02, YR04

I cut the image out using one a 2.5" Spellbinders circle die.  I layered the circle on top of some patterned paper, orange with dots and purple gingham with a white card base.

To finish my card, purple glossy dots and twine.

Thanks for coming by today, enjoy your Sunday - Karen

Just Because...

Today's post I am sharing a card I made using...
Dreamin' Big Cardmaking Thin Cuts Bundle

Close to my Heart is having a 25% off all Thin Cuts for the month of March

See the badge on my right side bar, with the link  to Cut it Out! for details

Make sure to Join my March Orders Event
You can place an order and have it shipped directly to your home


This card is made using our Juniper cardstock cut 11" x 41/4", folded along the 51/2" inch mark.  I then layered with a piece of White Daisy cardstock, cut at 4" x 5.25"

I love white space on cards, so this is a card that you can make really quick, using those thin strips of paper scraps we all have in our stash. 

I trimmed the Dreamin' Big papers into 5" x 1/2" strips.  Next, tear the edges to look like Washi tape, making sure each one is slightly shorter than the last strip. Attach the strips with adhesive.

Using your favorite Die Cutting machine, select your image from the Dreamin' Big stamp set, which has several bugs with wings...Dragonfly, 2 Butterflies and a Ladybug. I chose the Dragonfly for this card, stamping the image on White Daisy cardstock using Poppy ink,  position the coordinating die over the stamped image.  I usually anchor the die down with a small piece of Washi tape to hold it in place. Run through your die cutting machine for a perfect cut, ready to embellish your card.

The stamp also has several sentiments to use on your cards.  I inked the Just Because sentiment in Slate ink, then finished the card with Poppy twine and a Gold Glitter Gem attached to the Dragonfly.


Thanks for coming by today - Karen

You Brighten my Day...


Good Morning...

Today is my sharing day as a monthly Guest Designer over at...
Create and Share Facebook Group for Missy Daisy Stamps
Make sure to join the group...
You will find inspiration, sharing and challenges

I design exclusively for Jennifer Nilsson Art and today I am using Drops of Love

This winter, in Washington state, we have had strangely cold weather
Snow again on Monday and the mid 30's
I am so ready for some SUNSHINE!

This card was made in bright, primary colors and she too is wishing for some SUN!
This image was so fun to color and I had the perfect sentiment to use




I started with an A2 white card base, layered with primary color combo, red, with yellow and blue patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs, 6 x 6 paper pad called Sunkissed.

I colored the Drops of Love image in the following Copic markers: C-0, C-2, C-3, B00, B02, B05, E00, E02, E11, E21, E33, R22, R27, R29, Y02, Y06, Y15, Y17.

To finish the card, I added iridescent gems, tied a red ribbon around the lower portion of the card, then circle punched my sentiment and attached with a safety pin.

Thanks for coming by today and make sure to check out all the Jennifer Nilsson Art images sold exclusively at Miss Daisy Stamps, where you will also find images, sentiments, card kits and digital papers from both Miss Daisy Stamps and We are 3 as well.


Have a Warm and Snowless day - Karen
