Another Sympathy card….

6 Jul

Happy Sunday Morning!

I spent all day yesterday in my craft room riding out tropical storm Arthur.  I was very happy that we didn’t lose power and I was able to relax and make some cards for my stash.

sympathy 001I have been on a roll with Sympathy cards lately.  I don’t like making them very much but it is necessary.  I really love the all white cards, they look so elegant and having a calming feel to them.  The butterfly die is by Memory Box and the flourish is by Cheery Lynn.

I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi again Blog Friends!

I thought I would pop in and post a quick little card I made using the Flourishes Year In Flowers stamp set.

FlourishesI love the colors on this card, I don’t use yellow often but found these blank cards on discount at Michaels and picked up a few packages.  Now that I made this, I wish I had bought more!  I used my Inktense pencils to color the flowers and added a bit of stickles to give it some shimmer.

I am off to bed soon as I am up at 5 am to get ready for work.

I hope you all are having a great week!

Good Morning!

I haven’t posted in over a month!  I haven’t been in my craft room much because I have been out enjoying my garden and the nice weather we have been having.  Now that I have everything all planted I can sit back and watch all my lovely veggies grow.  I have made a few new things to share with you and I will get back to posting more regularly.

This has been a sad month for my family, I have lost a dear uncle a couple of weeks ago.  My mother asked me to make a card and I felt that something elegant would be appropriate.

Sympathy 001I used a lovely die from Maryanne Design and also the Prim Poppy die from Memory Box.  For the sentiment I used a Martha Stewart punch.

Sympathy 002Well I am off to get ready to teach class at The Cutting Garden this afternoon.  I have a busy day ahead of me, we are getting new furniture delivered today so I need to scrub my living room floors before I go!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!


Gathering Together….

20 May

Hello!  It has been ages since I made a blog post and I have some major catching up to do!  I have been busy crafting away but have been neglecting my blog.  I have loads of stuff to share with you and I thought I was start with a new stamp that I picked up at The Cutting Garden.  This stamp is by Penny Black and it is called Gathering Together.

Gathering Together 001I pulled out my Distress Inks and inked up the background and flicked some water at it to give it some interest.  I stamped it a second time so that I could color and pop up the butterflies and used my white gel pen to give the swirls some dimension.

Gathering Together 002It is difficult to see in the photo but I used my clear Wink of Stella over the butterflies to give them a pretty shimmery effect.  I am totally pleased with how this card turned out!

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for peeking in to see what I have been up to!
