Hello Friend Card

  Hello, Thanks for stopping by. I had a birthday earlier this month and one of my sister's surprised me with the new stamp set from Stampin Up called Friendly Hello. 

Not sure how she knew this set was on the top of my list of one's to get. But so happy she picked this one. I LOVE It!

I was needing a card so of course had to use my new set. Sharing with you all the first of many cards that I will be making with it. 

Colored the bird and flowers with alcohol markers and cut it out using a stitched circle die. 

The sentiment is also from the set. The coral feathered paper I had received in some happy mail and thought it would go well with this card. 

The embossing folder that I used is called Forest Branches. You can't tell but I added some Wink of Stella to the centers of the flowers. 

Here is a picture of my birthday gift and super cute card she made me right after opening it. I was so excited I had to take a picture.

 As you can see she also got me the Designer Series paper that goes along with the stamp set. 

( Thank You Tonda)!!! 💓


Thanks for stopping by, Hope you can make it back. Have a great day my friends.

Snowy Flight Card

  Hello Crafty Friends, I hope your day is going good. So for today I wanted to share a card that I made using a stamped image called Snowy Flight from Penny Black.



I love this sweet bird image. Birds are my favorite animal. I could watch them for hours at the bird feeders.

I used alcohol markers to color it and sponged a little bashful blue ink for the sky. The sky didn't show up as well in the picture.  Decided not to add a sentiment to the front. I like the little bird being the focus. 

Well that's going to be it from me today. 

Have a wonderful day my friends.

Stay Safe & Stay Crafty!

Valentine Rose for Mom

  Hello, I have a card share for you today. Tomorrow is Valentines Day and I created a card for my Mom. 

I received the pretty rose image in some happy mail and I thought it would be perfect for my Mom's Valentine card.

 Colored the image with alcohol markers and then fussy cut it out and even though you can't see it I added some Wink of Stella in clear for some extra sparkle.

The sentiment is from a Close to My Heart set called Beloved Bouquet.

First stamped it in Momento Black Ink and then stamped it again in Versa Mark. Heat embossed it in clear powder. 

The background script stamp is from a company in the U.K. It was stamped in Marina Mist Ink from Stampin Up.

Cut out the big heart on my Cricut and the two little hearts are from a little heart die. Embossed the blue cardstock with a embossing folder.

The leaves in white glitter cardstock was made using a die that I won in a giveaway a few months ago.  

To finish the card I added some ribbon called Polka Dot Tulle from Stampin Up. 

 I really enjoyed making this card for my Mom. She is such a wonderful blessing in my life and I'm thankful for everyday that I have with her. She is my biggest fan of my cards and loves sparkle. So I always make sure to add some to here cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day. Blessing to you!

Valentine Card for my Gorjuss Girl

  Happy Monday, Hope you are doing well. It has been cold here in Indiana. This past Thursday we had an Ice storm and then it turned to snow. The lights flickered several times. Thought we were going to lose electricity. Saturday morning was really cold. I think the temperature was 0 degrees. 

This past week was also my birthday. We were planning on going out to eat with the grandkids but the weather was to bad to get out. 

Have any of you been creating any Valentine cards or crafts? 

For my card share today I have a Valentine card that I have made for my grand daughter Scarlett. 

From the very first time that I seen Gorjuss Girl stamps I have loved them. They have always reminded me of my grand daughter. So that is what I have used for this card.

The Gorjuss Girl image is 3D and already layered. So that made this card an easy one. Didn't have to color anything. My grand daughter's favorite flower is a rose. So this was perfect.

Used a white cardstock for the base. The heart paper is also from Gorjuss Girl. Layered it on some white cardstock that I distressed using a Edge Distresser that I bought years ago and hadn't used it in a long time.

 Fun to get it out and use it. It's made by Hiedi Swapp. Not sure if they are made anymore. But I'm sure there are other brands out there. 

Stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock that feels more like cloth material. The sentiment is from a set called Petal Palette from S.U. 

The HUGS letters comes from a heart die from Poppy Stamps. I had just received it the other day. I had won it over on Karen Letchwoths blog for the Christmas blog hop at Word Art Wednesday.

The little circle heart is also from the Gorjuss Girl collection and I also added some white ribbon.

Here is a picture of the heart die with the other goodies that I won. Was so excited. Will have fun using that pretty snowflake stamp set from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps on some winter and Christmas cards next season.

Thanks for stopping by, I will have another Valentine card share coming up soon. So hope you can make it back. 

Hope you have a great week. Stay safe and stay crafty my friends.
