Dragonfly Vine….

31 Jul

Good Morning!  I have another pretty card to share with you this morning using the Dragonfly Vine stamp that Kim has ordered in at The Cutting Garden.  I love this pretty stamp and when you add some shimmery stickles to it, it is just beautiful!  This time I used some pretty purple paper…..

Dragonfly Vine 1I am looking forward to spending some time in my craft room this weekend and as a bonus, Monday is a holiday so I have an extra day!  Over the last few weeks I have snagged myself a few new punches that I am just itching to play with.  I scored two new deep edge Martha Stewart punch around the page sets at The Cutting Garden that I am excited to use.  Also I have 2 of the Martha Stewart Doily Punches to craft with so it should be a fun weekend for me!

I am off to get ready for work!  Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Good Morning Blog Friends!

I have a sweet card to share with you that I made from one of the $1.50 mini stamps that Kim stocks at The Cutting Garden….

Tea-rrific 1How pretty is that?  I am hooked on blues at the moment for some reason and I have been playing with this 5.5 x 5.5 size card because there is more room to add pretty embellishments and explore new card designs.  The paper I used is from the very first paper pad I bought when I first started card making.  It has been on a shelf in my craft room for ages and now I keep reaching for it.  I love it that it is not being wasted.

Tea-rrific 2Well I am off to work again today!  I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Good Morning!  Happy Friday to you all 🙂

I stopped into The Cutting Garden on my way home from work last night and I was so excited that the stamp I asked Kim to order for me came in!  It is called Adornment by Penny Black….

Adornment 001This stamp is absolutely beautiful heat embossed!  I can’t wait to try it in some different colors.  This is going to be one of my main Christmas card designs this year.

Adornment 002Kim ordered some extra stamps in if anyone else wants one!

Hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning!

Fred She Said Blue 1No this image is not a stamp and I did not color it! LOL!  This is a digi image I bought ages and ages ago from Fred She Said.  I love pretty floral cards and I decided to print a few off to make some cards last Monday in between doing some house work.

Fred She Said Blue 2I used the lovely Memory Box wreath die I picked up a while back from The Cutting Garden and some of the pretty ribbon Kim keeps in stock.  The white sheer ribbon is my favorite.

Its another work day for me so I am off to get ready!  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Memory Box….

Good Morning!  I am back to work today after a long weekend.  I am happy to get back into my regular routine with posting to my blog!  Here is what I have to share with you this morning….

Memory Box 1This lovely stamp is by Memory Box.  I pulled out a paper pad and decided I wanted to do it in blue.  Actually most of the cards I made this past weekend is in blue.  For some reason I am stuck on blue at the moment.  Oh well… I might as well roll with it.

Well I am off to work!  I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning!

Another quick post for me this morning as I am busy getting ready for work.  Today is Friday for me, I have a FUN weekend planned!  All my crafty friends are coming here this weekend to craft with me.  Shelly is coming all the way from Glace Bay to stay for the weekend so this should be a blast!

I made this card a week or so ago and I am just getting around to posting it now.  I am trying to use more color these days….

Hydrangea 1The stamp I used for this one is called Hydrangea by Flourishes.  Kim stocks loads of wonderful Flourishes stamps at The Cutting Garden, they are beautiful!

Good Morning!

I hit 200 followers yesterday!  So tonight after work I will do the draw for my blog candy!  I am excited to see who wins!

I have a pretty card to share with you this morning.  I used a different technique for this one.  I cut the image into 4, inked around the edges and then used my VersaMark watermark stamp pad and coated each piece and heat embossed it using glossy embossing powder.  Kinda gave it a tiled look, but the picture doesn’t show it very well unfortunately.

Butterflies 1I colored the butterflies in with copics and added some glitter to give them some sparkle.

Butterflies 2I have had this recollections stamp on my shelf for months but haven’t used it.  I felt it was the perfect stamp to try this new technique out and I am very pleased with the results!

I hope you have a great day…. it’s stinkin hot again here today!  Thank goodness for the AC!

Thanks for stopping by!!


Be Happy!

Good Afternoon Blog Friends!

It’s back to work for us tomorrow so of course, I am busy getting all the things I have been procrastinating about all week done.  *roll eyes*  I am terrible for doing that! LOL!  I guess you could say I work better under pressure?  Nope… I just suck! Plain and Simple!  LOL!

Okay, I am taking a break from domestic chores to share another card I made with you….

Be Happy 1This is my favorite Bee stamp by Pink Paislee.  The paper is crazy busy… it’s from a paper pad I bought when I first started card making and I HATE to waste paper so I am determined to somehow use it up!

I am hoping to draw for me blog candy within the next day or so… I am at 199 followers… SO CLOSE!!!!  I just need one more 🙂

Be Happy 3Okay… that’s enough of a break for me… I am back to my chores.  I hope you are all having a great day!!
