DT Day: Sarah

Hi IHP fans! Sarah here today with a card unusual for me - it's pretty much one layer! When I saw this print in the Everyday Collection by Avery Elle, I just knew I had to let those rays be the star of the show!


The Finished Frames dies have not left my desk since they came out, I love them! The stamped sentiments from So Happy paired perfectly with the Simply Said: Happy die - cut from turquoise cardstock then covered with a Gold Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle. Avery Elle ink in Kraft was used for the sentiments and I finished with some enamel hearts


Thanks for stopping by, wishing you a happy day!

DT Day: Lindsay

Lindsay with you today, with a colorful card using Wplus9's Dream Believer set and dies.  There are plenty of elements in this set to create a wide variety of designs with.  I used it in a more traditional way for my card here.  
I die cut the dream catcher and stamped it in brown ink, popping it up onto my card base.  I then die cut five feathers, stamping those with the coordinating stamp, and adhering them straight to card base.
I finished it off by stamping the cluster of dots in the same colors of ink in a triangle design on the card.  The Wink of Stella Glitter brush pen in clear, was added to the feathers for a bit of shimmer. Thank you for joining me here today!  I hope you are inspired to grab your stamps and dies and make a card!

DT Day: Tracy

Hi everyone! It's Tracy here sharing a fun wintery card I created. I used this cute snowman from Avery Elle and made a shaker card. I just stamped the snowman on a piece of white cardstock, colored him in with Copics, and then put a piece of acetate over him.


I die-cut the snowman shape out of decorative paper from Chickaniddy Crafts and laid it on top of my image using dimensionals. To finish my card off, I added my sentiment from Winnie & Walter stamped on vellum. I cut a wavy snow-drift kind of shape into it. Then added a snowflake wood veener from Lawn Fawn that I dragged through my new canvas ink pad, and a tiny bow of off-white twine.

Guest DT: Kim O'Connell


It's the first of the month and that means a new IHP Guest DT!  This month we welcome Kim O'Connell!

Here's what she has to say about herself and her first creation for us!

"I am a Dementia Program Director at a skilled nursing facility by day and a mad crafter by night.  I have been married for the past 14 years to my husband who tolerates my crafting addiction.  I have an 12 year daughter and 10 year old son and both have inherited the crafty gene.   I also have a  6 year old English yellow lab named Calvin who can often be found right at my feet as I craft.   I have been stamping since 2009 since I innocently went to the craft store and bought a couple of clear stamp sets in the clearance bin to make Easter cards with my kids. Those 2 stamp sets have multiplied like bunnies over the past several years. I would describe my style as clean but not so simple.   I would save my family, my dog, and my copics in a fire.  You can find me at Paper Perfect Designs or my  Paper Perfect Designs Facebook page."
