Darkroom Door Border Stamps

Hi Crafty Friends! Today I’ve got some amazing extra long Border Stamps from Darkroom Door! Each stamp is 11.8″x2.2″ and they are perfect for making scrapbook page borders, cards and even planners!

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

There are 7 stamps to chose from, but remember they are extra long so don’t forget to buy the coordinating Stamping Block.

My daughter LOVES books so the Bookshelf Stamp was a must-have for me.

I used 2 colors of ink (Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide Ink and Jet Black StazOn® Ink) and stamped the border along the bottom edge of 12″x12″ white cardstock.

I made flowers using Shapeabilities Succulent and Mum Flower Cutting Dies, Dotted Duos #2 Paper Pack, Kraft Cardstock and Coral Coast Sparkletz for the gold flower centers.

I used white and bronze ink pads, from Basics Ink Pad Set, on the flowers and wreath, leaves and butterflies from Happy Moments White Chipboard. Loops of natural Jute Twine was the finishing touch to my flower groupings.

Debbie made this beautiful card featuring Butterfly Garden Border Stamp (stamped on the left side) and Leaves Border Stamp (stamped along the bottom and top right). The barn wood paper from Country Chic and Beautiful Butterfly Dazzles™ Stickers were the perfect pairings for this card.

Notice how Debbie cut a butterfly image from the Butterfly Garden Border, and layered it with a Dazzles™ Butterfly.

The Art Studio Border Stamp is just right for this custom Creative Planner. Debbie colored her pages with Cosmic Shimmer Colours Shimmer Shakers and a mist of water.

And Yes! We have Elizabeth Craft Planners, dies and stamps! See them on Paper Wishes and May 1st Webisode!

Paper Discovery Card Builder Cutting Dies

Hello crafty friends! Today I have some Card Builder Cutting Dies, from Paper Discovery, that make putting together cards quick and easy.

Debbie used the NEW Country Chic Paper Pack (from Hot Off The Press) and elements from the Card Builder AND Layered Florals Cutting Dies for this card.

I love the stamped details (from Encouraging Words Stamp Set) and the sparkle from the Sea Level Sparkletz!

The Card Builder Cutting Dies is a handy tool that contains background and intricate frame cutting dies that make it easy to create amazing cards!

For this card Debbie used the Paper Discovery Card Building Panels Cutting Dies along with the same Card Making Magic Layered Floral Cutting Die Set that she used on the first card. I love how different they are!

The Just Believe Stamp (from Penny Black) was the perfect greeting!

This first card uses a cute Sloth Dazzles™Sticker that Debbie has placed on a Label Swing Die-Cut Card.

These Llama Dazzles™Stickers are sure to bring a smile to a friend’s face! Who doesn’t want to know that they’re “a whole llama fun?” Debbie used colorful Fresh Cut Blossom Paper Pack and Christmas Design Tool Kit #9 for the background. She colored her llamas with Le Plume Markers and added Starry Sky Sparkletz too.

The large and small Beautiful Butterfly Dazzles™Stickers on this card were backed with lavender Pastel Cardstock. So Beautiful!

Hello friends! Today I have some sweet card treats for you! Stampingbella is one of my favorite stamp companies because they have adorable artwork.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

Isn’t this card the sweetest? Debbie used Joy Ride Paper Pack, Pink Jewel Border Dazzles™ Stickers, Butterfly Girl Brianna Stamp and Words Sweet Stamp Set for the greeting.

Debbie used Spectrum Noir Pens to color her Butterfly Girl and even added Coral Coast Sparkletz to the wings.

Debbie also used a Stylus to shape the Pastel Cardstock flowers made with Shapeabilities Flower Cutting Dies. She added a little ink to the edge of each petal before gluing the blossoms together.

For this card I used Lemonade Paper Pack and Up, Up & Away Stamps.

I cut the Varied Hearts Border from black cardstock and again from red daisy paper. I filled in the black border with hearts from the red daisy border as shown.

After coloring with Spectrum Noir Pens I used Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff on the unicorn mane to add dimension.

For a final touch of sparkle I glued Red Hearts Sparkletz among the stamped hearts.

ABC & 123 Cutting Dies

Hi crafty friends! Today I’m excited to bring you some cute cards that use Alphabet Letter Die Set (with Filigree Pattern Overlay) and Number Cutting Die Set. Both are from Practical Publishing and are versatile must-have tools for any paper crafter.

For this sweet card Debbie pared The Charleston Paper Pack with Silver Sparkles Holographic Paper.

She cut the large “H” and “B” from burgundy paper, using Alphabet Letter Die Set. She topped each letter with Filigree Pattern Overlay cut from Silver Sparkles Holographic Paper. So pretty! She finished the words using silver Happy Birthday Dazzles™ Stickers.

Debbie colored the Bree Loves Buttercream stamp with La Plume Markers and added additional sparkle to the card by gluing Rainbow Sparkletz to the bow and crown.

To keep the Birthday theme going I used Dots & Stripes Paper Pack, Balloon Cutting Dies to create this fun card.

I die cut a circle from the card front using 8 Circle Double Stitched Cutting Dies. I glued Silver Ripple Holographic Paper numbers (using Number & Suffix Die Set) to the card inside back.

Die cut balloons from black and red dot papers and glue and foam tape to the card with some extending off the edges. Place Happy Birthday Dazzles™ Stickers along the bottom of the card.

It’s also a fun idea to foam tape a number to the center of a balloon!

Here’s a quick little video from Practical Publishing featuring their Card Making Magic Collection, which includes all of the cutting dies used here today.

Thanks for joining me today. Be sure to stop by next week when I feature cards from Anna Griffin’s card making kit, All About Love. Happy Crafting!

Creative Expressions Cutting Dies

Hello friends! I’ve been having the best time using Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Cutting Dies!

This white on white card was completed in just minutes! The monochromatic color scheme (which can be achieved with any color) has such an elegant look. I used white cardstock, Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Collection Butterfly Garden Cutting Dies and some white ribbon.

Tip: The Best Wishes Die Cut was actually connected and I cut the words apart to fit the card center opening.

Tip: I find it helpful to use stencil or washi tape to secure the outer die evenly spaced around the decorative die.



This pretty green and white card continues with the white die cut theme, but the fresh spring green background makes everything really pop!

I used Pastel Cardstock, Mini Expressions Get Well Soon Cutting Die, Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Collection Thistle Patch Cutting Die, Coconut Palms Sparkletz, and a Lime Green Button and bow.

This colorful card uses Cosmic Shimmer Colours Shimmer Skakers which gives the Paper Cuts Honey Bee Circle Cutting Die a pretty pearlescent shimmer.

To make this card, I die cut the Honey Bee Circle from a square of white cardstock without using the outer die cut circle.

I Sprinkled the die cut with Lime Burst and Electric Blue Cosmic Shimmer Shakers.

Lightly mist with water and blot with a paper towel and let dry.

I added the Mini Expressions “Thinking Of You” Cutting Die to the center and Ice Sparkletz to he flower centers.

Thanks for joining me today and don’t miss tomorrow’s Paper Wishes Weekly Webisodes featuring Hunkydory! Happy crafting!

Lovely Legs Stamps

Hello crafty friends today I’m bringing you the very clever Lovely Legs Stamps. As soon as the Paper Wishes Design Team saw these stamps we knew they would be fun to work with!

I chose to work with the Be A Mermaid Stamp Set because, well, I LOVE Mermaids!

I used a large white cardstock Double Sticked Oval Die Cut for the background and then colored the mermaid and beach with Spectrum Noir Pens.

I used Green Salt Paper on the Center Step Die Cut Card and placed torn strips of paper along the bottom edge of the card before stamping the greeting.

I used Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue to place individual Sea Level Sparkletz Embellishments around the card.

Debbie used Ruby Rose Paper Pack, the Be My Valentine Stamp and the Heart Pop-Out Die-Cut Card to make this adorable card.

After coloring with Le Plume Markers, Debbie embellished the images with Red Hearts Sparkletz Embellishments.

The white Fancy Border Dazzles™ Stickers were just the right touch, don’t you think?
