It is another beautiful day here in Halifax, the sun is shining and there is a bit of a cool breeze. I am busy getting my chores done and then plan to relax for the afternoon. I have spent some time in my craft room this weekend making a few cards for my stash. This one is a pretty Anniversary card made with loads of beautiful die cuts.
The making of this card cost me dearly… My beloved Bigshot died in the making of this card! *sniff* Oh well, I have contacted sizzix to arrange to get replacement parts AGAIN! I have had to repair my Bigshot three years in a row. I am starting to wonder if mine is somehow defective because most people find theirs very reliable. I am going to have to made a decision on what machine to buy to replace this one. I am hesitant on getting another Bigshot because mine has broken so many times. It is a pain to have to keep waiting for parts to be shipped. Oh well, I am sure I will figure it out!
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
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.
I 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.
I 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!
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.
I 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.
Well 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!
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.
I 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.
It 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!
Good Morning and Happy Sunday to you all!
I haven’t posted in a while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy crafting. The sun is finally out and spring has arrived here thank goodness! I made some spring inspired cards with the Hero Arts Large Blossom stamp that I picked up from The Cutting Garden. Have a look…
I really think these turned out so pretty!
I am off to head outside and enjoy this beautiful sunny day and hopefully get some of my garden beds cleaned up!
Thanks for peeking in and I hope you have a fantastic day!
I hope you all are having a great week! I have been busy at work and haven’t been in my craft room all week but I thought I would share a card that I made last weekend with you.
I love all the colors in this background paper that I made using my distress inks. It is such a cheerful looking card. I of course reached for one of my favorite stamps, Dragonfly Vine. I have used this stamp SO many times!
Thanks for peeking in!
