Background Stamping with Yarn

 Have been enjoying the cooler temperatures that we have been having lately, Love going outside when it's nice. But sadly It's getting hot again. So I will be spending more time indoors. Hopefully get some crafting done. Oh and maybe a little Housework to.

I'm glad you could stop by. Two of my favorite Hobbies are Paper Crafting and Crochet. Well I figured out a way to combine the two.

 For the background I took my biggest clear block and wrapped it in yarn and inked it up and stamped on the white cardstock.

Thought it gave it a different fun effect. Wasn't for sure how it would look used on a card. But I think the end result Is cute. 

Well the grand kids will be here in a few minutes so I had better end this post. Hope you enjoyed seeing my card and maybe you can think of some fun ways to make you some background paper to. 

Enjoy your day, hope you can stop by again soon.

Thank You Card for Gina

Recently I won a give away on youtube that Gina was having for National Scrapbook Day. I was so excited to be the winner.

So I thought I would send Gina a card to Thank her for the sending me the fun goodies.

Wanted to share with you the card that I made her.

Supplies used to make the card-
Stamp- Stampin Up Sincere Salutations
Cardstock- Black and White
Papers from Maggie Holmes (Bloom) 12x12 pack
Yellow Ribbon

This card came together quickly because of that nice paper pack from Gina.

Fishing Father's Day Card

 Today Is Saturday, Hope your having a nice weekend. I started the day with going out side and weed eating and racking up piles of brush. I have to say I didn't enjoy that not one little bit. My Grandkids helped me so that was good

So I decided to make some egg salad for lunch. The grandkids love It. So while that was cooking I went to my craft room to work on a card while the eggs cooked.

Can you tell where this story is going? Well lets just say no one got any egg salad. Never go to play in your craft room with anything cooking.

Anyway I have a another Father's Day Cards to share with you.

This card could also be used for a birthday to. Used the Stamp Set called Angler from Stampin Up.

Here Is a list of supplies used-

Stamps- Angler, Background Stamp (Weathered) and Short Order Alphabet
Cardstock- Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Black and Whisper White
Inks- Brocade Blue, Old Olive,Close to Cocoa and Summer Sun

Love when a card comes together quickly and guy cards are usually harder for me. 

That's all I have to share with you today. If you need more Ideas for men cards I will be posting another In a few days. 

Have a nice weekend!

Golf Card for Poppa

 Today Is Thursday,Busy making supper, but thought I would make a quick post.

I was asked If I could make a fathers day card with golfing on It and they wanted Poppa on It. So I decided on making basically the same card that I made my son for his last birthday.But It's a little different.

So thought I would do a quick post to share It. 

Wasn't for sure If that was the correct way to spell Poppa, but that's how she wanted It. I had the Happy and Day stamp but had to get letters from other stamps to make Poppa. That was a little tricky but I finally got It straight.  Hope she likes It.

Here are supplies-

Stamps- S.U. Background Stamp Print Pattern
Holiday Occasions Stamp Set from Joys Life
Cardstock- Whisper White,Red and Black
S.U. Oval Punch
Hole Punches
Corner Tag Punch
Flag- free hand 

That's my quick post. Thanks for stopping by
Will be posting some more Fathers Day Cards soon. Hope you can come back. Happy Day to You!

Card for the Hoppy Couple

  The sun Is shining this morning, Suppose to be Sunny and warm here today. We have had so much rain and flooding. That seeing a day full of sunshine and no rain Is so nice to see.
If you seen my last post, You have seen the Wedding Card that I made for my niece McKinley and her new husband Michael.

Today I want to share with you a Card that I helped my Grand Daughter make to give to my niece and her new husband. 

We thought a frog Card would be cute because while they were dating they would catch frogs. They even had two frogs on top of their wedding cake.  ( I would also like to add that I think catching frogs Is totally gross). Blah! 

So here Is the card we made for them.

This Card was pretty fun to make. Besides cutting out those frogs. That was a little tricky. I don't like cutting things out. 

Used the stamp set Unfrogettable  from Stampin Up.

Here is a list of the other things I used.
Spellbinders Die Beaded Circles- For the Card Base
Circle and wavy Stitched Dies
Cardstock- Soft Sky, Crumb Cake (Kraft), Whisper White, Old Olive and Real Red
Green and White polka dot paper from my stash and a white Signo Pen for eyes.

Thought I would go ahead and share a picture of their wedding cake to show you the two little frogs on top of the cake.  

         Click on the picture to enlarge, If you can't see the frogs

  When we made the card, we had no Idea they were going to have frogs on their cake. Thought it was so cute and Michaels Grandfather cut the tree for the base of the cake. Thought that was sweet.

So that Is all I have to share with you today. Thanks to all who stop by. Would love for you to leave a comment. If you do, please leave your Blog name so I can visit you. 

Hope you all enjoy your day! God Bless
