Masculine Cards…

28 Feb

Good Morning!  I am busy getting ready for work but I thought I would take a minute or two to pop in and post a masculine card that I made this week.  I love making masculine cards, I find them such a challenge and when I finish one that I actually like, I really feel like I have accomplished something!  Have a look….

Post 4

The stamp I used for the front is by Impression Obsession, Inc – H13022 Sail Collage and the inside stamp (A seagull sitting on a wooden post, you can just see part of it, sorry I didn’t snap a picture of the inside) is by Inkadinkado # 99205.  I used a layout that I found on pintrest and put this card together quickly and easily.

I am off to work again today, we are in for some dirty weather today, rain and freezing rain and then we are getting a dumping so snow tomorrow if the predictions are right.  Ugh!

Oh well, we must make the best of it right?  I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!



Another Easter card (I think)

27 Feb

Good Morning!  I am here with another attempt at making Easter cards with no Easter stamps!  Oh well…  Pretty colored paper and butterflies are just going to have to do! LOL!!

Easter 3I used my pretty Cheery Lynn butterfly die and an embossing folder from the Sizzix Floral Vine set that I picked up at The Cutting Garden.  I hope this passes as an Easter card…. I feel like I am scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one! LOL!

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!   It’s off to work for me!

Good Morning Blog Friends!

I have discovered it’s really hard to make Easter cards when you don’t have any Easter stamps!  Go figure huh?  Oh well… I made do with what I had!  I had some acetate kicking around my craft room for ages now and I decided to use some of it up.  The ladies from work have been asking me to make some Easter cards for them.

Easter 1I used Stazon Opaque Cotton White and just randomly stamped a flourish along the outside of the acetate and then decorated the front using the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Punch around the page punch set.  The sentiment stamp is just a simple $1.50 stamp I picked up at Michaels and the Retro Flower punch and Martha Stewart butterfly punch came from The Cutting Garden.  All in all I think this turned out really quite nice!  In real life the card looks very dainty and soft.  I love it!!

Here’s a peek at the whole card…

Easter 2I hope you have a fantastic Tuesday and thanks so much for stopping by!


You Can Do it Challenge….

24 Feb

Good Evening!  This week I am hosting the You Can Do It challenge over on SplitCoast Stampers.   There are tons of people at work dropping like flies with this nasty cold bug that is going around so I decided to make some teabag holders to hopefully cheer up my sickie friends.  I decided to kill two birds with one stone and challenge everyone to make some cute little tea bag holders and send them to a friend that is feeling a little under the weather.  Here’s a look at what I created…

Challenge 1Challenge 2Hopefully this challenge wont be too basic for them!

I hope you are enjoying your evening and thanks so much for stopping by!


Mixed Media….

24 Feb

Hey there blog friends!  I am having a great weekend!  I spent yesterday home with a few of my crafty friends creating up a storm. We made a few pretty cards and I will post them a little later.  I have been in my craft room today making another mixed media project.  I love the fact that there are no rules with this form of crafting, you can just do what ever you want!  I think it’s the randomness that really appeals to me.  Okay so here is what I created….

MM2MM3MM4MM5MM1The sentiment stamp is by Dylusions…  and the image is by Prima, Julie Nutting Mixed Media doll stamp.  These stamps are perfect for mixed media projects.  I stamped her twice, first on cream card stock and then again on some design paper and paper pieced her dress.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!


New Toys!

22 Feb

Prima…..  How I love everything Prima!  Check out these beautiful Prima stamps I scored at The Cutting Garden today….

Prima StampsAmazing huh?  I picked up these three but Kim brought in 6 or 7 different stamps and they arrived today!  I had to  reign myself in because she also brought in some new Martha Stewart punches that I just couldn’t resist.  I can’t wait to start playing with these!

Have a great evening!

Wild Flowers….

22 Feb

Good Morning!  Happy Friday!!!  I pulled out one of my favorite Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set of punches to make this pretty spring themed card….

Wild FlowersI am totally addicted to these punch sets, I feel that I NEED to own them all!  I have been wanting to ask Tony to help me develop a new storage solution for all my punches but I am afraid to actually let him see how many I actually own!!! LOL!!!  Oh well… I will have to figure out a way to ease him into it 😉  This is just a quick and easy all occasion card I made this past weekend while I was avoiding tidying my craft room.

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