Snowflake Flurry

Thought this would be a different kind of card. The base is Whisper White and I used the Big Shot to cut the Flurry die. I used a piece of acetate to line up behind the cut out snowflakes. I'll admit it was an afterthought so I had to add the strips to hold it in but next time I will glue in with the inside strips.



I finally got to use the NEW scalloped linen ribbon around the bottom accented with a sprig of holly. Inside is a piece of 6 x y Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. Give it a try it was quite fun to make.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Mermaids

I made this card for my granddaughter, Josie! First grade has been an adjustment for her and I thought it might cheer her up.


She loves mermaids!

REVISED from Vicky's Suggestion! Much improved!




Window Card

I have had this premade card base for years and finally decided to do something with it. I used a piece of Stampin Up Vellum 6x6 pad for the window and put some NEW Feels like Frost 6x6 Designer Paper.


Outside


Inside

I love the new papers but I think the front is a bit bare. I stamped from the Toile Christmas stamp in silver ink and cut with the matching Framelit.

Any ideas?

Until next time! have a blessed day!

Baby Boy

I made this pyramide Baby Boy album for a friend who just had her baby. I hope she likes it. It a bit bigger than a brag book but lots of room for pictures and journaling.

It was fun to make but lots of cutting!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Magnolia Suite

This simple card can be used for many occasions. I used the Magnolia Lane Cardstock and Envelope. I think free-hand cut a magnolia and placed it on a shimmery doily.


I stamped a magnolia from the stamp set on the envelope. So...Enjoy Today!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Snowman Bundle

I had recently made this background and it was a mistake but today thought I'd dress it up and use it. I punched the snowman and then used the hat, scarf, and coal buttons from the embellishment kit.


The card base is Whisper White and the mat is Bermuda Bay and embossed using the Poplar Tree Embossing Folder. The greeting is from the Snowman stamp set. I even stamped on the envelope!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Happy Halloween

Halloween is not my favorite time of the year BUT decided to make a card. The stamp set and paper is from several years ago but still works.

Inside

Outside

It fits into a regular envelope and you can add a greeting inside! I wanted to try it since it was a different size cut. Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Garden Shed

The base of this card is Old Olive and the mat is Smokey Slate. I love this Garden Shed set. I decorated the envelope and the inside as well.



I did one of these in grays but I love the colors and all the images are from the same set (I like that too). I hope you enjoy this card and please leave me some comments; much appreciated.

Until next time have a blessed day!

This card base was sent to me when I was on a design team and I never made a card from it. It had the oval cut; folded using white cardstock.


The background was Stampin Up Retired Designer Paper. I cut the new oval Heirloom Frame and embossed it. The sentiment is from the Christmas Toile Stamp Set as well as the framelit. The swirl is with the Heirloom Frame set. I had a few snowflakes laying around so I used them as well.

The inside has a layer of snow at the bottom because the ink I used on my ID Stamp on the back bleed thru!

The cabin in from the Still Scenes Stamp Set (Pg. 43; Holiday mini) It's adhered using a pop dot with two layers of  'snow' in front. A sprig of holly is for accent!

Until next time have a blessed day.!

Copics

This is one of the first cards I made totally using Copics a LONG time ago. The image was a digi download.


I found the card front while going thru some old pictures and thought I'd go ahead and make a greeting card. This would be great for a note card.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Peaceful Boughs

I used Mint Macaron on Shimmery White Cardstock with the Make-up brushes to shade
 the words and bough & pine cones.
First I embossed the words with White embossing powder.



The cuts and sayings are all in the Peaceful Bough Stamp Set in the new Occasions Mini. Quick and easy Christmas Card.

Please excuse the scans… I need to clean my scanner bed!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Another Masculine Card

This would make a great masculine card or fall card for a note or birthday. I used the Woodland Embossing folder by putting ink on the reverse side (Coastal Cabana). The base is Bermuda Bay cardstock. The mat is Coastal Cabana.


I added the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Sayings stamp set. The pumpkin is Pumpkin Pie and was adhered with Dimensionals as well as the greeting.

Until next time a blessed day!

Woodlands

This makes a great masculine card or fall card for sympathy, birthday, etc. Winter Woods was the image used and cut from a stitched oval framelit.


The base is Soft Suede with Early Espresso for the mat embossed with the quilt pattern embossing folder. I used linen ribbon to add a bit of bling. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Capture the Good

Capture the Good is this stamp set from the new Occasions Catalog that became active September 4. This was a quick, easy card and can be used for a Masculine card, Birthday or Note card.


The base is Granny Apple Green with a Whisper White mat stamped with one of the Capture the Good set. The camera and sentiment was stamped on So Saffron and the upper section was wrapped with the Mossy Meadow twine.

Not sure about the colors together but it's ok! Have a great day.

Just an added note: Today would have been his 41st birthday had he lived. It's a sad day for our family but I wish him a Happy Birthday in heaven!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Happy Anniversary

Quick, simple and stunning anniversary card. Any colors will do. I used Very Vanilla and Rich Razzleberry.


I found I am using more and more anniversary cards so it fits the bill! I saw it on Pinterest a long time ago and can't remember who to give credit to but thank you.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Happy Fall

We will be making this set of scrapbook pages Friday at Scrapbook Club 101. I am trying to use some of my older designer paper and this just fit the theme!

Yummy Christmas

Pet Sympathy Card

Most of you know that our furry friends are just like family and when one passes away, there is a tremendous loss!


The dark brown is the mat in my scanner. The card is actually just white. I also did one for you cat-lovers out there. To the grieving family this card would be very thoughtful.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Luray Caverns, Virginia

Mom, Dad & Miss Josie went to Luray Caverns a few weeks ago. I am surprised Josie liked it so much being underground. I got claustrophobia so I only went there once for just a few minutes!


There are a lot of activities there too. There is a toy town museum, a car & caravan museum, Luray Valley museum and of course, the caverns! Great family outing.

Until next time have a blessed day!
