Hello, hello! Samantha here with a super quick idea to share with you all. If you're anything like me then you hate throwing away those beautiful scraps of paper we all end up with when working on a project.

In my last tutorial we were left with a center portion from a cardstock panel.
For this card you'll take that center portion and adhere it to a piece of white cardstock cut to 2" x 4.25". Place dimensional foam adhesive on the back.
Pink background paper of your choice - Can be store bought or water-colored.
Thin cardboard. (I used a cardboard insert that came with some processed photos)
Clear Packing tape
Black pigment ink pad
Peacock feathers oxide ink.
Gold acrylic paint and a stipple brush or other dry paint brush.
Cut your card board to a standard postcard size. About 5.8 x 4.1 inches.
Cut your background paper to a little smaller than the postcard.
From the Petals and Flowers stamp set, ink and stamp your choice of a leaf all around as a border.
Next, ink and stamp any medallion as much or as little as you want.
Add a touch of gold here and there.
Then distress the edges with the black ink pad.
Overlap strips of the clear packing tape and lay across the top of your card, sticky side up.
Using your black pigment ink, stamp directly onto the sticky tape. Don't rock the stamp or the image will smear. It helps to stand up while doing this part so you have better control in your stamping process.
When you are done, flip the tape over and apply carefully the tape to the front of your card.
(Think of how you would apply a window decal.)
Press the tape firmly all over the card and trim off any excess.
So cool right?
The packing tape technique not only looks great,
but it helps protect the postcard from 'elements' as it travels to its destination!

Hello, hello! Samantha here and I'm so happy to be on the BPM inspiration team for another term. Speaking of inspiration my inspiration for today's card came from my colored pencils. I know that that may sound silly but looking at all those rich, vibrant colors filled me with ideas. (Don't forget to use code BPMDtSamantha2019 to save 15% off of your order!)
Inking up with sticky embossing ink stamp the Whimsical Daisy stamp all across the white cardstock panel and once onto the black cardstock. Heat set using white embossing powder. Fussy cut the flower from the black cardstock panel and set aside.
Using your inks blend across the white panel. I decided to go with a vibrant rainbow look.
Flip the panel over and make marks at about 2" and 3.5".
With your border die cut the panel at your pencil marks. For this card we're only going to use the top and bottom portions but don't throw the center portion away; I'm going to show you how to turn it into a card in my next blog post.
With your inks do some ink blending on the front of your card base.
Temporarily adhere the top and bottom portions to the card base to use as a guide for the placement of the 'Make a Wish'
sentiment. Stamp and heat set with white embossing powder
Place dimensional foam adhesive on the backs of the top and bottom portions. Line up with the top and bottom of the card base and attach.
Add your black flower that you'd fussy cut earlier.
That's all! I really love the way that this card tuned out, don't you? What things inspire you? Make sure you bookmark this page and don't forget to share what you were inspired to create!
Hello! Today, I am sharing snail mail postcards that are fun to make and fun to receive in the mail. I just love getting colorful stamped mail, don't you? All the red rubber stamps used are from Blank Page Muse.
To create the Poppy card, using Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry and blending tools, apply the ink to the card front. Then lay the stencil over dried ink and apply DO Carved Pumpkin to create the background. Finally, using the Poppy stamp and sentiment, ink with Versamark ink and heat emboss in black.
The second card was created the same way but use Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron with the Classic Car Front and Let the Adventure Begin Sentiment.
The third card used Background Roses stamp and sentiment with DO inks in Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry blended over the background then the stamp was inked with the same three colors and stamped onto the card. the sentiment was heat embossed in white.
Here are the finished cards, hope you enjoy creating your postcards!
