Wild for Pure Innocence

The incredibly talented Karin Åkesdotter is with us today sharing two beautiful cards featuring Pure Innocence characters and some extraordinary coloring.

The Roarin’ Good Day character is perfectly framed within the charming scalloped hole Karin created with the Peek-a-Boo Circle Window Die-namics. The window puts the focus right on the beautifully colored, sweet-not-scary tiger…right where it belongs.

This darling Wild for You girl is ready for safari. Once again, Karin wows with her coloring and perfect framing. A simply stamped sentiment and a bit of added dimension make both of these Pure Innocence beauties interesting to look at and simple to assemble.

You Have My Heart

Print

Barbara has been working overtime creating beautiful love-themed cards with our January Release. She’s sharing one of them with us today. Don’t forget, the entire release is available now!

The new Damask Background is a gorgeous choice for adding elegance to your cards – the scale makes it the perfect accent pattern. After stamping, Barbara ran the panel through her die-cutting machine with the Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up Die-namics to create amazing texture, and then highlighted each individual heart with a die cut created with the Heart Puzzle Die-namics. The final, most important piece, is the beautiful sentiment stamped and embossed using the Smitten with You stamp set – a fabulously versatile collection of mix-and-match sentiments for everything from Valentine’s Day to every day.
