I recently sent this card out to a long-time friend of mine who is soon marrying the love of her life. The floral background is made from a deco|foil ‘Clear Designer Toner Sheet’, foiled with silver foil using a Minc machine. It is mounted on an off-white pearlized card stock, which is used throughout the… Continue reading For a Special Couple
This card came together quickly using Altenew ‘Layered Blossom’ cover die set. This is a two piece set that can be used alone or together to make an A2 sized card. In this case, I used both cover die A and B. On a white card base I used a little bit of diluted ink… Continue reading Anniversary Rose
I’m not sure if this will become a regular thing or not, but I’m going to call today a ‘KISS’ – Keep It Simple Sunday. No crazy layering, no coloring – just some pretty paper, a little stamping and a few die cuts. Here is this week’s KISS card. On the front I used an… Continue reading Keep It Simple Sunday
This butterfly card was made using a combination of Stampin’ Up! Lawn Fawn and Stampendous products. Ink used was Stampin’ Up! in ‘Bermuda Bay’ and paper was also SU (Very Vanilla, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant).
In the last few months, members of my friends and family have welcomed 5 new babies into their lives. There are now three more little boys and two more little girls making the world a little cuter. Here are the cards I made for 4 of them (I forgot to take a photo of one).
This fall birthday card was quick and simple to make. The stamps featured are all by Rubbernecker stamps, namely, ‘Azalea Sunrise’ and ‘Happy Birthday Frame’. Okay so the stamped flowers were supposed to be azaleas (according to the manufacturer), but I think they work just fine as tiger lillies. This stamp is a two part… Continue reading Happy Birthday Lillies
Sometimes I just want to be creative with no goal in mind – I want to craft but I am out of birthdays or holidays that need cards, or I am simply inspired by an idea that I want to try. That is how this card came to exist: I wanted to try Ken Oliver… Continue reading Beautiful Day
I made this quick sympathy card to have on hand, just in case (I hope to not need to anytime soon). This stunning and large orchid stamp is called “Quiet Whisper”. It is by Penny Black. I’ll be honest – it is a tricky stamp to use and I’ve only had this single success with… Continue reading Love & Sympathy
Quick moose card I made for my dad. The moose stamp is from Stampin’ Up and the birds are Dark Room Door. The border die is Lawn Fawn (of course!) and the trees I cut using the Brother Scan N Cut. I stenciled the clouds using cloud stencils I made myself.
I wish my photography skills were good enough to show how stunning these flowers are in real life! This card was quick! I simply used a few colors of Ken Olive Color Burst powders as a water color medium – painteds directly onto the stamp, and then stamped onto paper. I accidentally dripped some black… Continue reading Color Burst Love
