This week's cards

I'm back with 2 cards I made this past week.   I made the 1st one for a friends Birthday on Friday and she loved it, thankfully.  The dress and boots are slightly popped up with foam tape.  The 2nd card was for a sweet friends 1st baby and her shower, she's due in 6 wks!  We knew it's gonna be a girl so geared the card for a little girl.  I also added her baby's initials to the drawer fronts......
Both where fun to make.  Hope you enjoyed seeing them.  And Thank you so much for coming by for a visit.


Until next time,

Red, Orange and Teal? Really....


Hello again.  I found some time today to get 2 more cards done.  1st one is for a group challenge and must be sent to one of the group members of our choosing.  We had to use Red, Orange and Teal.  I actually chose the challenge colors this time.  Why, I do not know, but i am happy to say I am thrilled with these 2 cards!   Made on Water color paper with distress inks and Stencil.  Sentiment word stamps stamped on vellum and are from Catherine Pooler.  The flowers and leaves are from Altenew and colored with water color pencils and baby oil and attached with foam tape.  added two orange bling to corners of vellum.  2nd cad done same way but no flowers attached.  I was pleasantly surprised with these and really like them......


Until next time

Masculine Card



Happy Hump Day, LOL...it has been a while since I have heard anyone say that!  So I finally got my computer photo program to cooperate and let me load this card I made for one of my DH's male friend's.  The sprocket looking dies are from Sizzix and the birthday cake is from Catherine Pooler. The sprocket is to pieces (corners) and just used stamping up fine tip glue to attach and the cake stamp is 3 separate layers and then the candle and the little black dot trim is another stamp and then I fussy cut it out and attached with glue runner.  I choose the blue, grey and black just because I thought it made for a more masculine card.  And that's all there was to it. Oh and I forgot to snap a pic but the inside has a few sprockets in the top and bottom corners and a stamped Birthday sentiment.  There you have it all done and already mailed.  Now off to make some more cards, need birthday, baby shower and challenge card, but only the shower card is needed immediately.  Wish me luck because I have no ideas at all for it......Thanks for popping in to visit and have a wonderful summery day.

Until next ime,

Get Well Card


Hello friends.... just popping in to share a card I made for my step Mom who was not doing so well.  She was in the hospital but is now home, not 100% but is on the mend.  I made this card to let her know we were thinking about her. And she really liked it........ I used a new stamp set from Catherine Pooler's new Store. It's called wild blooms and I love it.  I embossed with versa mark then added color directly on top of the versa mark then stamped and heated up.   Also embossed the sentiment the same way and added few sequins and there you have it!  I have another card made and took a picture but having trouble getting it to copy here.  I 'll keep trying, it's bound to work at some point......... Anyway that' it for today.  Happy Monday evening all.


Until next time,

Fun in the Sun

Happy Wednesday.....Here is a cute little summer vellum card that I made and am sending off to someone, not sure who yet.  I found this pattern in one of my Vellum pattern books.  My small group of card friends had a challenge to make a card or project using the colors: Orange, Green, Pink and Yellow and it had be a summer card.  It is a bit hard to see but I did use all the colors on the card, the pink and orange are hard to tell apart, but I did use them. Well I like it and hope who ever gets does too...

Thanks for popping by and hope you are having a great summer...... That's all for today.

Until next time,

Cards made this week

Hello crafty peeps.  I made a few cards with my new Altenew layering stamps.  These are from the "Beautiful Day" set.  The first is a get will for a sweet friend in one of my card groups, Nancy.  The next one is birthday card for a 99 yr young lady, Irene, whom I do not know but was asked to make a card for from a fellow card maker in a group I belong to.  She is trying to get 99 cards sent to Irene for her special day.  So that it and here they are.

Well I hope you got some inspiration from me, I am loving these stamps from Altenew......just in case anyone was thinking of getting them, they are wonderful.  And fairly easy to use .   Thanks for stopping by and have a great up coming week!

Until next time

Organizing Tips?

Hello and Happy Saturday to all the crafty peeps out in blog land.   So I have been thinking for the past few days that I really really need to some how come up with some way of organizing all my stamps (clear, cling and rubber).  Right now they live in photo boxes and plastic tubs with no organization at all... I hate it and I am wanting to do something better.  So I am asking all of you, How do you organize your stamps?  And do any of you keep them cataloged on your computer or similar?   I have been hearing about a new App called "Evernote" that some people are using but have not looked at it yet?   So tell me how you keep organized b/c I have got to come up with something or purge a good bit.... just takes to long to find what I want right now, LOL.  So folks help a crafty girl out and give me some good tips................. Any and all tips appreciated! :)

Until next time
