Garden Shed

Totally love this shed/stamp set. The base is Espresso with a Soft Suede mat and the images are stamped on Very Vanilla.


Simple but stunning. The Very Vanilla was distressed just slightly around the edges. The inside has a stamped image and greeting. To finish it off, I stamped the envelope. All images are contained in this one set.

Great card for retirement, birthday, get well, just a note card, thank you and in general, any occasion you chose.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Any Occasion Card

Very Vanilla CardStock is the base for this lovely copper enhanced card. The 1st mat is embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing folder. The next layer is the Copper Card Stock (retired from long ago) with a Very Vanilla image layer.


The image is from Country Home Stamp Set - stamped in Copper Ink. The speciality Copper bow is for accent and pulling the whole card together.

It can be used for Birthday (even masculine); Get Well, Sympathy, Note Card or a card for any occasion.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Buckle Card

This card was cut from Whisper White with Balmy Blue mats and Feels Like Frost Designer Paper. There is plenty of room inside to write a message.



The slot for the buckle was punched by the label punch. Such a cute design.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Tiny Ornaments

Stampin Up had these tiny embroidery hoops in the last year's catalog and I had them left over. I found a cardinal pattern small enough to fit. I glued the hoop on the front of the design and cut close around the hoop and added a hanger string. Makes a neat ornament!



I have a few more of these so I think I will try another design. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Until next time have a blessed day!

D.A.R.E. School Program

This is Jake's graduation from the D.A.R.E. program at school. (Temple Christian)  It is good to teach the kids at a young age. Jake is in the 4th grade which gives them an insight as to what will happen with drugs and alcohol.



Sheriff E.W. Viar presented a great program followed by the School Security Officer. He then handed out the diplomas. Great example!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Masculine Card

This 5 x 7 card is great for any masculine occasion. I used a piece of chipboard for the base and covered both sides with the same paper the envelope is made of. I also love the stamp set, Rustic Retreat.


All images are from the same set. I used a piece of vellum (retired) as well as the black DSP I used for the mats. I stamped the envelope to match the theme of the card.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Blue Jay Conversion

The Christmas Cardinal is now a Spring or Summer Blue Jay. Would make a great note card or masculine card. The mat is Whisper White embossed with the Poplar Tree embossing folder.

This is a 'salvage' card. The trees are embossed backward because the front got messed up and I couldn't use it. (Always recycle when you can)


He is regal looking bird! I saw this on another blog and couldn't wait to try it out.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Three Deer

This white on white card is striking. Three deer cut with a framelit and added using Dimensionals. I added a gold thread leash and a sprig of holly set the tone.


The mat was run thru the Big Shot using the Falling Snow Embossing folder. And of course, Rudolph has the big red nose!

Thinking of You

This card can be used for a masculine card, birthday, sympathy, note card or illness. The mat was embossed with the plank embossing folder. The main images are from the Crafting Forever stamp set stamped with Pacific Point. Two acrylic dots add accent.


I stamped the front of the envelope as well.  The sentiment is from Good Morning Magnolia but you can add any one that suits your card needs.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Gift Card Holder

Sorry it has taken so long to post but have been cutting and prepping for the Stamp A Stack class on Saturday. Lots of cutting to do.

This is a cute little gift card holder. The base is Poppy Parade (or you can use Real Red). Any Christmas themed Designer Paper will do for the inside and out.

The snowman is punched using the Snowman builder punch and the acrylic embellishents are in the Occasions Mini.


The front snowman is used as the closure for the holder. Cute and simple and I'm sure anyone would love receiving their gift card in it.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Strips of paper

This card turned out nothing like I pictured in my mind! But decided to finish it anyway. The background is made of 1/2" strips weaved and glued to a base. The card base is Pear Pizzaz and the printed from the Garden Lane Designer Paper.


The sentiment is from the set Rustic Retreat and the deer image is from Nature's Beauty. I double punched the mat that has the sentiment to make it smaller. Enjoy

Joy, Joy, Joy

The card base is Shaded Spruce with a Cherry Cobbler mat and the top layer is from the Plaid 6x6 paper stack. I cut out the image and added it with Dimensionals.


There was enough left to add to the outside flap of the envelope. A cut-out dollie accents the image. Christmas is getting closer and closer but don't forget that all-important lost holiday - Thanksgiving!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Snowmen

Snowman Season highlights this card. It is quick & easy to make and can be a masculine card, birthday card, even a Christmas Card.


There is a verse inside and a few paper snowflakes. The blues believe it or not, are the same color but the scan makes it look different. The snowmen are stamped randomly with a touch of color on the scarf, hat and carrot nose!

The sentiment is punched out with the Large Oval and then two 'Dolly Parton' hearts to help it stand out. Card base is Seaside Spray matted with Night of Navy.

I have been MIA lately but I had a super, great visit with an old friend from VAB. Hadn't seen her in over 20 years so lots of catching up.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Feels Like Frost

Another Feels Like Frost Christmas card. I love that paper. I used Seaside Spray as the base with an added 3" strip from the 6 x 6 paper stack. The image is for the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set that is a FREE hostess gift!


The greeting is stamped on a die cut from the Beautiful Boughs and is mounted on a die cut from Frosted Frames. I added a few snow flakes for accent. There was enough Feels like Frost paper to add a strip to the flap of the envelope.

Have a wonderful day and STAMP!!!

Feels Like Frost

This was an easy, peasey & quick card. The silver foil adds such a great accent as the mat and the frosty paper is from the 6x6 Stack Feels Like Frost. I scattered some silver sequins to show off the silver foil.


The scan looks black but it is silver! I even made a matching envelope with the left over Frost paper.
Great Christmas card for a man! The stamp set is Greatest Part of Christmas FREE as a hostess gift.

The snow is torn water color paper with the two rabbits for the set, Wildly Happy.I used a light gray marker to highlight the rabbit.
