Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad

Hello everyone,

Today I have a very special card to share with you. I made this card for my Parent's Anniversary which is tomorrow. The will be married 42 years tomorrow. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad I love you so much!

Now on to the card. The base is basic black from Stampin Up. I embossed the silver American Crafts foil paper with the Cuttlebug folder D'vine Swirl. I cut the flower bouquet with my Sweethearts cartridge in the blackout feature. The paper I used is from Martha Stewart. I found the paper stack at Walmart on clearance. I then used paper roses I bought on Ebay (say goodbye to expensive Prima's) I love these flowers. They look just like Prima roses and they are made in Thailand just like Prima's. ;o) You can also find them at The size I purchased and used on the card is 1/2 inch. I used my Bow Easy to make the pink bow with satin ribbon from the Dollar Tree. I printed the sentiment on my computer and punch it out with the heart punch from Stampin Up. I distressed the edges with Sweet Blush ink from Paper Trey Ink.

So that's it...I hope you like my post. Please feel free to comment or add yourself as one of my followers.

Hang in There

Hello everyone!

So, do you remember how I teased you in my last post that I had a card in mind that I just had to make? Well, it took until Thursday at 9:00pm to get the time to make it. Also, another added bonus is the design team over at MPS issued a challenge to make a Animal type card. Don't you just love how everything comes together? This card is for a friend that needed a pick me up. She has been sick for a while so I thought I would make her a "Hang in There" type card. So, what could be better than a cute monkey just hanging around! ;o)

Now, to the card...The base is cardstock by Paper Trey Ink. The other colors are just random cardstock I had in my scraps bin. All of the cuts are from my favorite cartridge Create a Critter. I use it so much that I just keep it laying out on my desk. The trees were cut at 2 3/4 I also used the flip feature for the other side, the branch was cut at 3 1/2 and the monkey was cut at 3. The grass was cut free hand and the sentiment I just printed on my computer. I then punched it out with a new punch I got today at AC Moore. I highly recommend it because you can punch three different sizes of a tag at once.

So, I think that about covers it. Thanks for stopping by!

With Sympathy

Hi everyone!

Looks like it's going to be another busy weekend, but I didn't want to leave you without a little something. This is a card I made for a friend whom wife passed away. As you can tell it was very simple.

The base is Close to Cocoa by Stampin Up. The other colors used are Mellow Moss, Almost Amethyst and White by Stampin Up. The stamp is from Michael's look for it in their wooden stamp section. I love this stamp! I colored the image with Mellow Moss and Almost Amethyst markers. The sentiment stamp is from Paper Trey Ink called Mega Mixed Messages. I have used that stamp set many time and highly recommend it to any card maker.

I hope to have time this weekend to make another card that has been on my mind for days now. I can't wait to make it because in my head it is super cute. I just hope it turns out to be! Look for that card next week...

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You...

Hello Everyone,

Here is a quick card I made using Prima flowers. I love how the card turned out. It started out all different and I didn't like it. So I changed everything up and this is the result.

I used Prima flowers I found on clearance at Michael's. The base is from Paper Trey Ink. The background paper is from Stampin Up. I used a new stamp set I got from Rubbernecker Stamps for the circles, I love how it turned out. I also punched the bottom with my new Fiskers boarder punch. The Sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink as well. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Thanks for stopping by!

Get Well Soon!

Hello everyone,

Sorry this has taken me so long to post. I made this card for a friend that was sick a few weeks ago. I would have posted this sooner, but I have been so busy. Now that it has been so long ago I made it I can't remember the size of the bear of the color of the base. So from now own I will make a list of what I use as I go. I know I used Create a Critter Cartridge for the bear. I know the ribbon is from The Dollar Store. The stamp set I used for the Get Well Soon is from Hobby Lobby. I love this set it has a ton of single words that you can stamp together for a sentiment. I also think the patten paper is from K&Company.

Thanks for stopping by!!
