Trying out new things!

I needed a special wedding card for my neighbor and friend, and I finally decided to break out my new Nestibillities Rectangle and scallop die cuts. I am in love and desperately need more! The are easy to use in your Cuttlebug and make your card look so fun! I also used the D'vine Swirls Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug. The heart is embossed with white ink and is from the SU! set "Always." For accents, I used silver cord and brads. I think I am going to make this card in some other colors to have on hand for some upcoming weddings. Enjoy!

A "Guy" Card...

My Little Brother had a birthday yesterday and this is the card that I made for him. I used the "Artifacts" set that retired many moons ago, but I will NEVER part with it. It is a great masculine set. I used Kraft, Creamy Caramel, and Baroque Burgundy inks and cs. I also used the "Sanded" background stamp. It is a great one to have, especially when making masculine cards. For accents, I used the Photo Corners punch, distressing tool, and paper piercer.

Summer Picnic DSP! WOW!

I can't get enough of this paper! Here is another example of a simple card using Summer Picnic DSP and Die-Cut Blooms. I hope my SIL likes it! I'ts for her B-day. I love these vibrant colors and patterns. This card would be great at a beginner workshop. More fun to come! I am so glad that I have had time to be creative lately.

Get Em' Before They Are Gone!

When making this card, I used some cute and EASY goodies from the Occasions Mini-Catalog which is done at the end of June. I used Summer Picnic dsp and Die-cut Blooms to make this simple and "summery" card. I also used the Photo Corner punch, 1/8 hole-punch, and a button w/ hemp twine to accent the focal point. I think I need to order more of this paper and more die-cut blooms! AHHHH! I am addicted....

Big Ole' Flower!

I love flowers! I can't have enough of them. I also love to make simple cards with a central focal point. Here is a fun card using Bali Breeze dsp (my all-time favorite) and some felt flowers from Flower Fusion. I love Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, and Rose Red together. I also added a gold brad, some white gel pen dots, and some white ribbon to make the center flower POP! Enjoy!

Sorry I've been absent...

Hi Fellow Stampers! Those of you that are busy Mom's know how I feel right now. I have been very busy, as I also do craft shows and sell my hand-stamped creations. I spent a lot of time getting my inventory up, so I have not had much time to make some new and fun cards to post. This week I will make some time to get some new cards up. Thanks for your patience!
