adding texture to cards


Hi. I’m so glad you are here!   It’s Tifany here and today I wanted to share this card featuring a few of my favorite things – mason jars and twine…and (stamped) flowers.  I love using The Twinery’s twine to jazz up real mason jars, and I wanted to give the same feel to this mason jar stamp. Rather than wrapping my twine around the entire card as I often do, I just pierced holes in the card around the rim of the stamped mason jar and threaded some Solid Lilac twine through the holes. I […]

Owl Watercolor Card Set

Hello! It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD. Today I wanted to share with you a quick and easy watercolored card set: I love to create card sets because adding in a few extra cards doesn’t take much more time to create (if you are working assembly line style), but then can be given as a simple gift (card sets are great hostess gifts)…or you can just stash them away for the times when you need to grab a quick card for a special occasion. For this card set, I started by stamping that […]
