The images are realistic and simple to use. Create two-toned looks using dye-based markers or Sponge Daubers as I have here. Either way achieve two different colors (or more!) on a single image.

The mushroom and gnome images were die cut from the designer paper! Talk about quick and easy! The 16-piece set of dies includes accessories as well as pieces to assemble a gnome without stamped images. Quick and versatile!

Opt for changing out a few designer paper panels for cardstock to provide extra room for stamped or die cut images or added space for sentiments and hand written messages.

Z Fold Fun Fold Card | Speedy Recovery

The moment I saw this stamp set I fell in love with the artwork and the font! Not only is it unique, it’s easy to use. These shaded images mean you can use colored ink pads without the time needed for coloring them in.

There’s one outline image in this stamp set, perfect for those of us that love to color, and I used it to create the background on the belly band above. It’s a great way to add texture to your cardstock.

Blessings of Home

Simple and elegant. This card would be perfect for weddings and sympathy cards as well. The Abigail Rose designer paper includes a soft color palette that pairs well with any floral images.


Detailed images like this require no coloring when you have beautiful designer paper and embellishments. I love how Gina added gold gems (retired) to this card versus silver! The contrast brings added emphasis to the image.
