Love & Friendship Cards

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!

NEW Penny Black Valentine Stamps

Happy New Year crafty friends! The Paper Wishes staff is excited to bring you some sweet Valentine cards, made with Penny Black stamps!

Debbie used Back Porch Paper Pack, Hearts Around Cutting Dies, Flower Flourish Cutting Dies and Happy Hugs Clear Stamps to create this adorable “Happy Hugs” card.

I love how she added a pop of color with dark pink ink from Pigment Ink Pad Bonanza! And for sparkle, Red Jewel Border Dazzles™Stickers and Red Heart Jewel Dazzles™Stickers. She even added a tie of brown Jute Twine which adds another rustic touch.

This sweet Valentine uses Buttercup Paper Pack, Red Hearts Holographic Paper, All My Loves Stamp Set, Words Sweet Stamps, Love & Miss You Cutting Dies and Peppermint Jazz Sparklets Embellishments.

To get this look, stamp the image 3 times. Once on Red Hearts Holographic Paper and twice on white cardstock. Cut out the “LOVE” image as shown.

Cut paws and rose only from one cardstock image and color with Spectrum Noir Pens. Color the entire bear on the remaining cardstock image, using Spectrum Noir Pens. Glue the holographic LOVE image to the full bear image.

Die cut the “you,” from Love & Miss You Cutting Dies, from Red Herts Holographic Paper and glue Peppermint Jazz Sparkletz Embellishments around the stamped image.

For more Valentine inspiration using Penny Black Stamps and Cutting Dies, checknout our Weekly Webisode, Tomorrow January 2nd. Thanks for joining me today and from all of us at Paper Wishes, Happy New Year!

Friendship & Flowers

Hello friends and happy holidays to you all! I hope you’ve had the opportunity to share the season with friends this week. Speaking of friends, we have made some lovely friendship inspired cards and can’t wait to share them with you!

The Flower Flourish Cutting Dies make a beautiful flower vine! I used green Pastel Cardstock, Flowers, Flourishes & Feathers Paper Pack and Stitched Stackers Cutting Die for the card background, vine and flowers.

I sponged green ink, from Pigment Ink Pad Bonanza, on the edges of the green vines, leaves and flowers.

I die cut large and small flowers from both lavender and purple Flowers, Flourishes & Feathers Paper Pack and used a paintbrush handle (an excellent substitution if you don’t own a stylus) and foam mouse pad to curve each petal. I also inked the petal edges with either lavender or burgundy ink.

And for the finishing touches I added half pearls from Jelly Fish Sparkletz Embellishments, Pink Flowers, Flourishes & Feathers Ribbons and a greeting from Smile Today! Stamp Set.

Debbie made this beautiful card using Vase Garden Cling Rubber Stamp, Ribbon Stackers Cutting Dies, Black/White & Colors Too Paper Pack and the Choose Happy Stamp Set.

After coloring her image with Le Plume Pens, Debbie cut out the image and added Crystal Lacquer (coming soon to Paper Wishes) to the vase portion.

When the Crystal Lacquer dries the glossy finish looks like water in the vase.

Debbie also added Peppermint Jazz Embellishments to the poppy centers and black buttons to the card front.

Thanks for joining me today! And from all of us at Paper Wishes, Happy New Year!

Valentine’s Sneak Peek

Hi everyone! Today I’m happy to bring you a sneak peek at our collection of Penny Black Valentine’s Day Stamps.

This card features the Love In Bloom Stamp Set, Curved Stitch Cutting Die borders and Black/White & Colors Too! Paper Pack and Ribbon Set.

I used the Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide Ink for the the “grass” and stamped the tree with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. To add a little sparkle I placed Red Heart Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers over some of the stamped hearts.

After coloring the remaining stamped hearts with a Pink Spectrum Noir Pen (Skintone/Pale Hues) I stamped a greeting from Words Sweet Stamp Set.

Both stamp sets are adorable and so versatile too!

Take a look at what Debbie did with the heart, dove and bow stamps.

Debbie used Le Plume Water Color Markers in Pine Green, Brown and Persimmon along with a watercolor paintbrush and water to soften the colors.

For a different look Debbie used a masking technique and Yellow, Pine Green, Violet and Steel Blue Le Plume Watercolor Markers.

Thanks for joining me today. Next week I’ll have a special Paper Wishes Christmas Blog for you. Merry Christmas and happy crafting!
