Heartfelt Roses Card

Hello! I hope you are doing well. This afternoon I decided to make a card for a couple of challenges. I combined the Inky Paws Challenge to use Polka Dots with the Spring Flowers theme at Simon Says Monday Challenge. To create this Heartfelt Roses Card I used two stamp sets from Newton's Nook: Heartfelt Roses and Monarchs. To color the images Copic markers were used. There may be no such thing as blue monarch butterflies, but I love the blue contrast with the flowers. The scalloped heart was cut using the Heart Frame Dies by Newton's Nook. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping and that pretty much sums it up. Thanks for stopping by!

Garden Mouse Note Card

Good day! It's been a long while since I have posted. Most days I am too tired to be crafty. However, I saw the color challenge at Inky Paws was to use violet, lavender, yellow, and white, so I decided to play along. My card design is based off a design by Amanda Bodine from the Garden Mice by Newton's Nook stamp set release. Her card is very clean and simple. I took a different approach and used patterned paper. The position of the mouse and sentiment were swapped, so the cards are similar, but definitely not the same. That's it! Thanks for stopping by.🌼

Autumn Blessings Card

Well, hello! It's been awhile since I've been able to make a card. One of my cats broke the tip of her front right elbow and had to have surgery. After surgery was 7 weeks of cage rest with minimal activity. Finally, we got the all clear that she can go back to normal activities. It was a long and hard 7 weeks, since she is only 9 months and still full of energy. I'm praying things will calm down now and life can get back to some kind of "normal." 

This Autumn Blessings Card was made using dies from Unity Stamps and the wreath is from the no longer in business Reverse Confetti Stamps. Copic markers were used to color the image and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Getting Ready Card

Hello! It's super hot outside, so making a Christmas card seemed like a good idea. Thankfully, the month of July is coming to an end, but I didn't want the Christmas in July challenges to disappear without participating. So, I made this Getting Ready Card featuring the Getting Ready stamp by Colorado Craft Company. Copic markers were used to color the image and then the coordinating die used to cut it out. A piece of snowflake paper from the Winter Market paper pad by Carta Bella was used for the background. Everything was adhered flat onto a piece of blue cardstock and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!🎄

Turtley Awesome Card

Good day crafty friends! It's been a few weeks since I've played in my craft room. At the end of June, I broke a lower wisdom tooth and had to have it removed. It went well, but I sure hope I don't have to do that again.

Today, I finally felt like crafting again, so I made this Turtley Awesome Card. The images and sentiment are by Gerda Steiner. To color the images Copic markers were used and a dab of glossy accents added to the turtles eyes. The floral paper is from the Lots of Love paper pad by Doodlebug Design. The background behind the turtles was made using Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. So glad you stopped by and enjoy the rest of your day!🐢

Summer Penguins Card

Whew! It's a hot one today in Oklahoma. Being a land locked state, there are no pretty beaches to visit. So, I made my own little beach using the Summer Penguins stamp set by Pink & Main. The cute little penguin image was colored with Copic markers and then die cut with the coordinating die. The palm tree paper is from an older Carta Bella paper pad called Summer Lovin' (2014) and some waves paper from the Echo Park Under Sea Adventures paper pad (2021) was also used. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.🌴🌴🌴

Card from the Rescued Cats

Hello and Happy Father's Day! My hubby and I never had kids, but we have rescued cats. So, I made my hubby a Card from the Rescued Cats. He does a lot for them and I could never do it all alone. He will tell anyone that he wasn't really a cat person before he met me, I made him love cats. Right now, he is in the recliner taking a nap with our youngest who was rescued a block from our house last October. The poor little guy had been dumped and was crying for help. He would have never made it outside. Thankfully, he ended up with us. He is one of my hubby's best buddies.🐈

This Card from the Rescued Cats features a stamped image and sentiment from the Adopt Don't Shop Cats stamp set by Whimsy Stamps. The image was colored to look like our cats using Copic markers. Black cats are hard to color, but I think it turned out okay. The sentiment was popped up using foam tape and some sequins added for sparkle. So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
