Simple Saturday….Paisleys and Posies

Hello! This week went so fast for me.  Despite some minor hiccups (not literally), it was a great week. I wanted to share a card design I made using the Paisleys and Posies stamp set that will be available to purchase from the new Holiday Catalog beginning September 1st.  This is a one-layer card.  They seem to be my favorites.  Here’s the card: The colors I used were Watermelon Wonder...

Ghoulish Grunge

Hello! The weather has been a little cooler here the last couple of days which turns my thoughts to all things Autumn.  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I tend to go for more of the creepy vibe when it comes to Halloween so when I got a peek of the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set that will be available for purchase from the Holiday Catalog starting September 1st, I...

Stitched with Cheer

Hello! I’m back today with another Christmas card.  I know, I know.  Let’s have Halloween and Thanksgiving first, right?  I’m right there with ya.  But I couldn’t resist making a cute card with the Stitched with Cheer stamp set that will be available to purchase starting September 1st.  Here’s the card: I added a candy cane stripe down the side with a scrap from the Brights DSP Stack in Real Red...

Simple Saturday….Not Inspired by Pinterest

Hello! Superman and I usually go to our local parade of homes each year.  We’re not really looking to move right now but looking at different floor plans and home decor styles and cool home technology is one of our passions.  We visit model homes all the time much to the bewilderment of our 17-year-old. This year we had decided not to spend money on parade tickets.  A few days before...

Umbrella Weather

Hello! I finally pulled out my Weather Together (#141543) stamp set and dies to play.  I kept having an image of all gray and then a bright red umbrella so I pulled out my Aqua painter (#103954), some Shimmery White card stock (#101910) and went to town.  Here’s my card:   I backed up my banner sentiment with a couple of banners I cut from vellum card stock (#101856).  Then to make...

Thoughtful Branches and a lesson Learned

Hello! Happy Monday!  I’m back today with another Thoughtful Branches (#144328) project.  I LOVE how this card came out…with one exception which I’ll talk about in a bit.  With school starting this week, I think my mind is turning to Autumn and there’s nothing more compatible than tree images in an Autumn color palette.  Here’s my card: My color combo is Delightful Dijon (#138338), Cherry Cobbler (#126966), Tangerine Tango (#126946),...

Simple Saturday….Thoughtful Branches

Hello! I sure am glad it’s Saturday!  What about you? I pulled out my Thoughtful Branches stamp set and made a simple, but beautiful card to share: I love one-layer cards so much.  This clean and simple card uses several different colors of ink; Wild Wasabi (#126959), Garden Green (#126973), Tempting Turquoise (#126952), Pacific Point (#126951), Elegant Eggplant (#126969), Rich Razzleberry (#126950), and Melon Mambo (#126948).  All I did was...

Stitched with Cheer

Hello! As promised, I’m back today with another Christmas card.  This one comes from the Stitched with Cheer card kit.  I LOVE kits.  Sometimes I don’t have the time to come up with a design and assemble all the elements….especially at Christmas time.  But I still want to send a handmade card to loved ones.  Kits make that possible.  There’s also a coordinating stamp set called Stitched with cheer. I...

Thoughtful Branches Christmas Card

Hello! I’m so sorry for my absence last week.  Life.  Ya know? Anyway, because I’m so tired of sweating this summer, I decided to jump seasons and share a Christmas card today using the Thoughtful Branches bundle (#144328) that is AVAILABLE TO ORDER DURING AUGUST ONLY.  Sorry.  I didn’t mean to shout.  I just don’t want you to miss out on this fabulous bundle!  Because really, it’s while supplies last...

July Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Hello! I’ve been getting to know the July Paper Pumpkin kit the last few days and have come up with some alternative projects.  I’ve heard from some of my customers that they aren’t always keen on the 3D Paper Pumpkin projects so I decided to come up with some cards and a tag as another way to use your kit supplies.  Here’s how the kit was intended: I haven’t made any...
