I'm Baaaack!

Ok, Stampers and Fellow Crafters, let's try this again! If you're just tuning in, my last post would not let me continue down the page for some reason (I'm sure I'm somehow responsible but just couldn't figure it out!), so this page is a continuation...

Next card I wanted to share is a very simple card I made for my Hubby's Aunt Betty.  Simple but very sweet.  I love it.  I first made this for a beginner class I was offering at my local community college.


I used the Mixed bunch stamp in a variety of colors, love the way it turned out. 

Next card up is for my Brother In Law, Johnny.  For this card I used a retired stamp set "Party Hearty", very cute in primary colors.  You might also notice that I used versamark to give a watermark with a stamp from the Bring on the Cake stamp set.  My pics are kinda dark, and I apologize for that, I didn't take the time to go to my dining room for better lighting. 

Ok, folks, gotta run, until next time...Happy Stampin'!

Sympathy Card for Sharon

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

I've been busy, busy this past month making all my Craft Fair Goodies, I won't share just yet but soon I promise!

For right now though I wanted to share a few cards I made this month for a few Birthday's and unfortunately for a dear friend who lost a love one.

First up is the sympathy card I may for my friend Sharon who lost her Brother a couple weeks back. I used two stamps sets in basic black, Thoughts & Prayers (my go to sympathy stamp) and Papillion Potpourri.  I stamped the smallest butterflies on to Daffodil Delight cardstock, I thought it was quite lovely with the black and white.  Here I also used the new Honeycomb embossing folder and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch.  Very pleased on how this turned out, just wish it was for another occasion.  :O(

Now, I have two more cards to show you but for some reason this blog entry will not let me add anything below my Sympathy card, I am going to end this post and just start another.  Be right back...

Papillon Potpourri Birthday Card

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

Today I want to share a card I made for my dear friend Lisa for her Birthday.  I really enjoyed making this card so much, I think it's very Elegant (hence the Elegant Butterfly Punch used)!  Unfortunately I took this picture while in my craft room so it's a bit dark but if you click on the pic it should enlarge enough to get a good idea on how the colors I chose go so well together.  (see card recipe below for details)

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb cake
  • Stamp Sets: Papillion Potpourri, Bring On the Cake
  • Inks: Craft White, Cherry Cobbler
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Tulip Embossing Folder, Elegant & Bitty Butterfly Punches, XL Oval Punch
  • Embellishments: Half Back Pearls (I think 3mm)

Ok, thanks for stopping by, gotta run, until next time folks...Happy Stampin!
