Designer Jess here with another quick Wetlands 1 Card to share with you! I just love this set – can’t you tell? 🙂
(you can click on each product to find it in the shop!)
Onto the card! This was a quick, easy but gorgeous design! First I started by stamping the background image (water and trees) using a BLUE Craft Ink. I quickly sprinkled on the Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set, creating the gorgeous blue background. This is a super easy technique and a great way to have limitless colors of embossing options – simply by using the inks you have on hand! I love Clear Detail Embossing Powder. It is a MUST HAVE in your collection.
I stamped the Crane using Versamark and used Black Detail Embossing Powder to make him stand out against the water. I grabbed my Nuance Turquoise Watercolor Powder and a water color brush to create some water. I did use my Heat Tool to dry the paper quickly, but you could easily set it aside to dry for a bit.
To make the “frame”, I took the leaf stamps and randomly stamped them around the background using Versamark Ink. I sprinkled on Moss Star Embossing Powder and heat set, creating the beautiful frame of leaves. Finally, to finish off, I stamped (with Versamark Ink) a few of the ducks flying overhead and used Black Detail Embossing Powder. I used the same technique to add the sentiment. All of my card layers were adhered using 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape and VOILA! 🙂
As you can see, this set is SUPER versatile and I just love how quickly a card can come together. I hope you enjoy it too!
Until next time,
To start this card, I stamped the background image using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder.
I used both the leaf stamps along with some craft ink in a light green, then sprinkled on Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set! I added a second layer of leaves using a darker green craft ink and repeated the same process of adding Clear Detail Embossing Powder & heat setting! I love that you can use any color craft ink and Clear Detail Embossing Powder!!! Such a great trick. I also stamped on the crane with Versamark and used Pebbled Copper Embossing Powder.
Next, I grabbed my Nuance Turquoise Watercolor Powder and my aqua painter to add some pretty blue water to the lake. I also stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and heat set using Pebbled Copper Embossing Powder.
Lastly, I mounted the entire panel onto some green cardstock using 1/4″ Tearific Tape.
I hope you enjoy this card and head over to the shop to grab some of the great supplies!
Until next time,
E. Marie here with one more masculine card idea, perfect for Father’s Day. This one features the Gone Fishin digital stamp set.
I started with some lovely designer cardstock and layered this on the white card base. Strips of 1/4” and 1/8” Tear-iffic tape was added to the next layer of black cs and Autumn Spice Velvet Glitter was added.
Rectangular windows, with black frames, were die cut from another piece of the designer cs. This was popped up over the printed image and sentiment, using dimensional tape, and added to the card front.
Thanks for stopping by.
I used digi version (DIGI778) from Gone Fishing stamp set. Image with two fisherman and sentiment are merged and printed out. I die cut it with largest die from Spellbinders Floral Ovals set. After I inked the background with Broken China Distress Ink I covered it with Versamark ink and Super Thick Clear Embossing Powder. Then powder was melted with heating tool I added another coat EP and melted it again. I used the scissors to cut off all the fancy edge to leave only the pierced oval. Fun thing about Super Thick Clear EP is that you can crack it. I did it with mine focal image. Then I rubbed Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the cracks.
To make the card background I used a kraft paper. I spritzed it with water and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Crushed Shells). Then I crinkled it. After the paper was dry I inked the crinkles with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Paper was die cutted it with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangle die. Then I placed it in to the Sizzix embossing folder (Lattice) and run it through the die cutting machine. I used more Vintage Photo Distress Ink to bring out the raised parts of the embossing.
I added a narrow strip of white cardstock and a bit wider cardstock strip which was heat embossed with Blackened Bronze EP to add some more interest to the card background..

Hi, Diane with you today and it looks like a good day to ‘go fishin’..lol!
The new May release brought us this super fun ‘Gone Fishin’ stamp set
that is just perfect for the guy in your life,
either for Father’s Day or a birthday!
I first stared with a Memory Box stencil Texture Shine.
Reminded me of a nice sunny morning to fish on the lake.
I applied Dreamweaver’s White embossing paste with a
I sprinkled a pretty Lemonade glitter on that,
then set it aside to dry.
Once dry I trimmed around the edges and
using Double Sided Tear-ific TApe 1/4“, I adhered it to a navy blue card stock.
Next, I stamped the image with Versamark, then sprinkled
Cerulean embossing powder on and heat set with my heat tool.
I did the same with the sentiment using the same embossing powder.
I punched an anchor with a MS punch,
added Versamark to it, then coated it with
Super Thick Silver Enamel Embossing powder.
I love the way it made it look like a real anchor.
A tip is to let it set up a few minutes before touching it
as, because it is thick it takes a little longer to dry then
normal embossing powder.
I finished by tying the anchor to a piece of twine, liking the ‘pop of red’.
Thank you for visiting with me today!
I started out by cutting a circle and drawing where the hair line should be and then colored it in with Copic markers. After stamping the large mustache, I fussy cut it out and then colored it with the same colors as his hair. The monocle was then heat embossed with Blackened Bronze embossing powder and colored with Copics. As a final step, the mustache is pop dotted for more dimension.
All of the patterned papers came from my scraps. The tabs are dies from Taylored Expressions (Simple Tabs). I masked the sentiment so it could be stamped onto the two tabs, stamped each part with VersaMark, and then heat embossed with Forest Green embossing powder. Memento Ink (New Sprout) adds a touch of added color to the tabs.
Heavy twine was added to the bottom of the card with 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape. Once the twine was placed where I wanted it, Lavender Iris glitter was sprinkled over the rest of the tape to cover the remaining exposed adhesive. It give the card a subtle touch of sparkle without being over the top. And who says you can’t add glitter to a guy card? Not me :-).
To start off, stamp the car image several times and fussy cut out each one of them. Alternately, you could create masks and stamp the trio on a single piece of cardstock and fussy cut out the silhouettes. I have to admit that I tried this method first. The “sample” one I created to find out if I liked the placement of the cars looked perfect. The next four tries, however, always looked a little off. So I salvaged cars from my masking attempts and cut them out individually. In the end, this worked out better as I had started out with 4 cars instead of 3. Color the images with Copic markers, or your favorite type of marker. Glossy Accents was added to the windshields, headlights, and turn signals for added sheen. Also, some Clear embossing powder was heat set onto a couple of the car grills as well. The racing numbers on the doors are cut from Die-Versions A Little Mint font.
The racing scene started off as a piece of light colored fabric. I drew in my road with a Sharpie and then began coloring the sections with Pan Pastels. The cars were then adhered to the fabric using Tear-ific tape.
The sentiment was created using Sticker paper and die cut from the Fishtail Flags die by MFT. The sentiment and the border are covered with Blue Silver embossing powder and heat set. The banner at the bottom, part of the MFT die set, was also cut from Sticker paper and heat set with Blue Silver embossing powder.

The Sparkle Team
St. Patrick’s Day has passed but thought I would still share a little “green” with you today.
This is a great little masculine card with lots of sparkle and a fun surprise. The image and sentiments are from Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Golf set.
I colored the image with copics, die cut it, and layered it on die cut sticker paper. This leaves a nice border of adhesive, which I covered with Pine Grove Glitter Tinsel to create the “green” for this golfer.
Did you know that you can heat emboss on SNS glitter? The word “GOLF” is heat embossed in white on top of white cardstock that is layered with Tear-ific Tape and covered with Meadow Spark Glitter. I cut this out and layered it in the bottom corner of the card front.
Now for the little surprise. Using Spellbinders’ circle die and an embossing folder, I created a little golf ball that flips over to reveal the sentiment.
Masculine cards can sometimes be tough to create but this Golf set is perfect for them (but a female golfer image is also included for the ladies). Full details of this card can be found in the SNS gallery here.
Hi everyone, Shona here to share a card in-keeping with the frigid temperatures we’ve been experiencing lately here in New Jersey. We had freezing rain and ice yesterday, so this seemed like an appropriate card to show today:
