Fabulous!

18 Jan

Good Morning!  I have been spending time making some pretty cards this past weekend and I thought I would pop on and post a picture.

card 001

I picked up this beautiful paper at Michael’s on clearance – Sweet Mint by Craft Smith.  I was able to get a coordinating paper pad of solid card stock as well so I will be making quite a few cards with these papers.  They are beautiful!!  I am excited that I finally got myself a Mini Minc!  I have just started to use it and I was able to successfully create my sentiment for the front of my card using the Minc and silver foil.  Love It!!

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

2 Stepping….

10 Jan

Hi Blog Friends…

I know I have been very lazy with posting to my blog.  I really need to get better at this!  Everything just seemed to get so busy for me with getting ready for Christmas etc.  I am really going to try to do better with this!

I found some time today to play in my craft room and make a few cards.  I pulled out three of my 2 step stamping sets.

This first one is by Stampin’ Up called Stippled Blossoms.  I stamped them using Tim Holtz Distress Inks Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord.

2 Step 001

Next I used Stampin’ Up Lotus Blossoms, using Stampin’ Up Ink – Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Soft Sky….

2 Step 002

For this last card I used the Technique Tuesday, Two Steppin’ stamp set.  I used Onyx Black Versafine ink for the outline and Stampin’ Up Rose Red for the inside of the flowers…

2 Step 003

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Lazy me…

19 Aug

Hi Everyone… I have been very lazy about posting to my blog and I really need to make a point of getting back into the regular habit of posting what I have been creating.  I do post regularly to Facebook because it is just so easy to snap a picture with my phone and it is instantly posted.   Here are some things I have been making…

Botanical Wings 001

I have decided to do some classes from home and I will be teaching this on tomorrow evening 🙂  They are made with the heartfelt creations botanical wings collection of stamps and dies.  They are just lovely and the flowers are so easy to make!  Love it!!

Botanical Wings 002

Morning Lilies Peg Stamps….

24 Oct

Happy Friday!

I scored some new Rubber Stamp Tapestry Peg Stamp sets and I tucked into my craft room last night to ink them up….

Christmas Lilly 1

The stamp set is called Morning Lilies but I decided to make them Christmas Lilies!  Once I got them all finished I thought I might take them over to The Cutting Garden to see if these should be posted as a class.

Here is a closer look at them…

As you can see, I am still in Christmas card mode so I am sure you will be seeing more like this from me in the near future!

Have a great weekend!
