Creative Corners Cutting Die

Hi everyone! I have crafted up some cards using the NEW Creative Corners Cutting Die from Hot Off The Press. The die set comes with 3 pieces that are perfect for both masculine and feminine cards.

This card features small corners cut from Brown Crocodile Specialty Paper, which I think gives it a masculine flair, although I love a good reptile print myself! I love the touch of metallic from the Gold Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™ Stickers

This next card has a delicate feminine feel. I used the large corner dies to cut Silver Holographic Ripple Paper and pink swirl from Rooted In Love Paper Pack. So quick to make too!

This is a special week at Paper Wishes! Our owners, Paulette and Mike, are celebrating their 53 Wedding Anniversary! 

We have some “Little known facts” about Paulette and Mike. Click here to check them out.

Beautiful Basics: Pink & Red Set

Hi Everyone! I’m excited to bring you another new collection from Hot Off The Press: Beautiful Basics: Pink & Red Set!

The coordinating Foiled Flowers Washi Tapes feature beautiful metallic gold designs that add just the right amount of sparkle to your projects. 

The delicate Laser-Cut Wood Flowers are easily transformed with glitter, paint or white ink, like I did for this card. I covered the surface of the flower using the surface of the ink pad. Quick and easy! 

After the ink was dry and glued the flower to the card and then embellished it with Sparkle & Shine Enamel Dots. I love the colors and dimension that these little self-adhesive dots add to projects!

Come celebrate Paulette’s Birthday with us with 50% OFF at Paper Wishes! Enjoy this offer through August 11!

That’s all for today. Enjoy the rest of this beautiful summer and come back next week for more Paper Wishes ideas.

NEW Stamp A Garden

Hi everyone! Today I’m bringing you a beautiful set of stamps that are so versatile you will use them again and again. Stamp A Garden stamp set has everything you need to make beautiful bouquets and fields of flowers.

For this card I cut out some blossoms and foam taped them to give a 3-D look to the card.

For this 5″ square card I die cut a circle on the center of the Joy Ride paper overlay.

First I stamped the colorful images directly onto the white card front.

Then I added Gold Glitter Glue to the flower centers. 

This really was a quick and easy card to make.
