Heidi’s love of papercrafting began over 10 years ago creating scrapbooks for birthdays and fun events. Then, one day, she picked up a cardmaking magazine and fell in love with all the creative options stamps and dies had to offer. She finds inspiration for her cards in all kinds of interesting places.

Sometimes you just want to say “hi” and tell someone they make you happy. Today’s card is bright and cheerful with a hint of summer thrown in. All with the help of Fiskars’ Life is Sweet stamp set and some Summer Splash paper from Carta Bella.
I love to find different ways to color floral stamps on my cards. Alcohol inks are my top pick because of the ability to blend and create shadows as well as the control factor. I do love the freeform look of watercolor, but controlling the color can sometimes be difficult. Tim Holtz Distress Crayons can be a great option to get that watercolor look with a little more control on your project.
