Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle #154065 $70.00

I have memories of these enormous Sunflowers towering over the edge of the garden from years ago when my kids were little. Always so pretty with their strong stems. Our new stamp set, Celebrate Sunflowers stamped and die cut in Bumblebee, captures the beauty of those flowers. The white embossed layer using our Old World Paper embossing folder is a great backdrop to show this one off!

Wedding Wishes

Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper #152492 $15.75

Anyone invited to a wedding this year? Wishing all those planning nuptials congratulations as they rework their plans for the day they will remember forever.
Today’s card layout is a simple one, ramped up with the very pretty Forever Greenery DSP and a large greeting. So simple I made a bunch in no time. Several of my co-workers at Homewood are getting hitched this year and I’m all set to wish them all the best!

Lion Punch Art Card

The Creative Inkster
Sunflower Dies #152704 $45.00

Most innovative card I’ve seen in a very long time! My thanks to Stacey Stark for sharing this one with me. First off, though, what IS punch art? It’s where you use punched shapes and/or die cuts to create a focal point on a project. This one features – of all tools – the Sunflower Dies as well as some punched circles/flower. Can you spot how many of the 9 dies in this set were used? Just a fun and out of the box thinking card. Thanks, Stacey!

Masculine Birthday Card

The Creative Inkster
World of Good Speciality Designer Series Paper #152491 $20.00

I’d say I send more cards to women than to men. So, all the more reason to have some on hand for when I need ‘em! Probably why I was really drawn to the World of Good Speciality Designer Series Paper when it came out – along with the fact my daughter does a lot of travel so this paper is perfect! A pretty simple, geometric layout: Use a 3 ½” x 3 ½” square and adhere your layered squares evenly on it. With this positioned near the top of the card (leaving a small border on 3 sides) will provide a spot for your greeting. The card also has an embossed layer using the Old World Paper 3D folder #153200 $13.50. Yep, you need it!

Get Well Card

The Creative Inkster
Birds & Branches Bundle #154107 $63.00

I’m pleased to share this unique card layout from Jackie Topa in Wainfleet, ON. Beyond the birds and the die cut circle, can we talk about how cute this card is? It’s like a little “book” with the left side tied as a binding. I just had to do a video on how to make this fun fold. Check it out here:

Hello Sunflower!

The Creative Inkster
Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle #154065 $70.00

I just love this gorgeous card made by Kristen Hancock from Victoria Harbour, ON received in a swap in May. The colours are Merry Merlot and Bumblebee with gold foil accents. That pretty background is made by stamping one of the smaller sunflowers all over in the Merry Merlot ink. This bundle has a very detailed die cut that lays over your stamped and cut sunflowers. Hope you enjoy it!

A jar of Sunflowers

The Creative Inkster
Jar of Flowers Stamp Set & Punch Bundle #154064 $49.50

Today’s card is super unique! I would never have thought of stamping the flowers and colouring them in then punching them out to layer as if they were in the jar. And…wait for it…the jar is a punch! Super simple and cute layout. My thanks to Elizabeth Green from Brampton, ON who shared this card with me in a swap!

Happy Father’s Day!

The Creative Inkster
2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper #153070 $15.75

Wishing all dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day! May you enjoy a day dedicated to appreciating all that you do for your families. My father passed away 20 years ago and I remember how special a dad he was to take us camping, fishing, and to the beach. He worked hard to provide for us during the week and enjoyed relaxing with us on the weekends especially in the summer when we would go away camping every weekend. So, fitting to have a card with the greeting, “You’re so special”. Have a wonderful day!
