Still Life Stems Round Card

Hello Crafters, Hope your having nice weekend. Today I want to share a card with you.

The card base for this card was created using the a spellbinders die.

The flower stamp is from a retired Stampin Up set called Still Life Stems. Used alcohol markers to color it in.

 For the sentiment I used a retired stamp from S.U. called Sincere Salutations and the tiny speckles is from a set called Itty Bitty Backgrounds.

Cardstock used are pumpkin pie, black and very vanilla. 

Really miss my brother so I used his favorite colors orange and purple.

Wanted to post that the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop will be coming up soon. There is still plenty of time to create a project if you would like to play along.

Here is link for all of the information. Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Elephant Birthday Card

  Hello glad you could stop by. For today I wanted to share a birthday card with you.

The cute elephant image is from bugaboo. Sadly they are no longer in business.


This was my first time using my new colored pencils by Arrtx. Even though I have never used colored pencils, I think it turned out ok. 

I used gamsol and a blending pen by Tim Holtz. The blending pen was very easy to use. Used wink of stella for a little sparkle and also added some baker's twine.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my card. Have a happy day and come back again.

Ice Cream Card

  Hello Crafty friends, I haven't had a post in a few weeks. How's your summer going? The grandkids are back in school. Our first football game of the season is tonight.

 My grandaughter Scarlett is a cheerleader this year. She's so excited to be cheering tonight. She looks so cute in her outfit and her pom poms. Hope our team wins. Go Rams!

  I love Ice Cream on a hot day. Too bad I don't have any of the real stuff in the freezer. So I guess an Ice cream card will have to do.

For the Ice cream cone I used a stamp from Close to my Heart called Ice Cream Dream. I fussy cut the ice cream out, not the bottom cone. I don't like to fussy cut but this one wasn't that bad. 

The sentiment is from a Cardz TV set called "Ticket Talk". The paper was from my stash. Used alcohol markers, Rounded corner stitch die and a white gel pen.


Thanks for stopping by,  Happy day to you all!

Stay Safe & Stay Crafty!!!

 Hello, Hope you are doing well on this Monday. I totally forgot to get this card posted yesterday. So I'm a day late. Can't believe that I forgot. Today's card is for Father's day and was created with the set High Tide from Stampin Up. 

I have only used this set one or two times before. I think the last time that I used it was for a card for my Dad. He is now passed on. When making this it brought back memories of him.

This Card would be nice for a Birthday, Father's Day or a just thinking of you. 

Here Is the list of products used to make this card-

Stamp Sets- S.U. High Tide and Well Scripted

Cardstock- Not Quite Navy, Whisper White

Ink- Cherry Cobbler, Buckaroo Blue, Soft Sky, Summer Sun, Always Artichoke and Memento Black

 Since it's Father's day,well the day after. I thought I would share a recipe that my husband enjoys. It's Corned Beef Patties, My grandson really likes them too. I personally haven't tried them because I'm a vegetarian. 

Corned Beef Patties

Ingredients needed-

1 can of Corned Beef

2 large peeled and cooked potatoes (2 cups)

1 lg. egg

1 tsp. pepper

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1 tbs.onion powder. (can also use real diced onion)

For coating patties- 1/4 flour and 1/2 tsp pepper

After the potatoes are done, cut them into small cubes and place in measuring cup to get at least 2 cups.

In bowl add corned Beef and cut up using a fork. Then add other ingredients and mix.

Heat 1/3 cup of oil in skillet on medium heat

In shallow bowl mix 1/4 cup of flour and 1/2 tsp pepper together.

Dust hands with flour and shape into ball.Roll ball in flour and then flatten into a 3 inch patty.

Floral/Butterfly napkin card

 Hello, Haven't had a card share for awhile. So I finally got a card made to share with you all.  I needed a thank you card and decided to make another napkin card. 

 Have you ever made a napkin card? Love how quick they are to make. The only thing I added to this one is a yellow ribbon.

With the words already on the napkin, I decided to not add a sentiment to the front. 

Thanks for stopping by, Hope you can make it back. I will be sharing a Father's Day card soon. 

Have a wonderful day, Stay crafty my friends!
