Good Thoughts Card

Hello! Thanks for stopping by to check out this Good Thoughts Card. This card was made for my mother-in-law. She is a two time breast cancer survivor with her first diagnosis over 20 years ago. Recently she had some tests done and found out she has bone cancer. It's a very difficult time for her, so I just wanted to make her something pretty. 🦋

The floral oval stamp is from Newton's Nook, it was colored with Copic markers then was fussy cut and matted to a die cut scalloped oval. A yellow butterfly from the Monarch stamp set by Newton's Nook was added. The sentiment is very retired from the the Perfect Pennants stamp set by Stampin' Up!. Everything was adhered flat to a piece of striped paper and that's it. Thanks again for stopping by!

This Good Thoughts Card is entered into the following challenges:

Sending Smiles Card

Good day! I have a quick post to share this Sending Smiles Card I made using the challenge colors at Inky Paws. The challenge colors are: Crimson Red, Cobalt Blue, Turquoise Blue and White. I decided to use mainly blues with red as an accent color. The image is called Newton's Blooms by Newton's Nook and it was colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating die. A scalloped oval die by Newton's Nook was also used. The sending smiles sentiment is from the Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook. A piece of blue polka dot paper was used for the background and everything was adhered flat. So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.😊

Hope Card with Feathers

Hello and happy Sunday! It's super hot outside today, so I am staying inside and playing in my craft room. My focus is still on making cards for a card drive for women going through treatments. For this Hope Card with Feathers I used some older supplies that had never been used. Everything used is from different companies, but I was really happy with how well things coordinated. The sentiment stamp is from Stampendous!, the feathers are from the Four Feathers stamp set by Stampin' Up! and the patterned paper is from a Recollections paper pad. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. I'm entering this card into the following challenges: Crafts Galore Encore (anything goes) and We Love Stamping (anything goes with roses option). Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Card Drive

Good day! Today I'm sharing a card I made for a Card Drive for women going through chemotherapy. Click here for all the card drive details. To create this card I used a very retired stamp set by Stampin' Up! called You've Got This. The flower was colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut. Some stamped splatters were added using the retired Gorgeous Grunge stamp set by Stampin' Up! along with Pool Party ink. The layers were cut using the Scallops & Rectangles die set by Unity Stamps. A little butterfly was added for detail and that's it. If you have some spare time I would like to encourage you to make cards for this card drive. It doesn't matter how many you make, each one will be appreciated. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Seashell Thinking of You Card

A happy hello! It's still busy at my house, so not much crafting going on. I've been doing research on dishwashers. Ours went out and we need to buy a new one, but I'm not sure what brand is best. The old one lasted 18 years and was a Kenmore, but they don't make them anymore. However, I did take some time this morning to make this Seashell Thinking of You Card. It features the Newton's Seashell image and the layout is from the current Inky Paws sketch challenge. Copic markers were used to color the image and then it was die cut with the coordinating die. The papers are from a Bo Bunny paper pad called Escape To Paradise (2018). Some twine was added and everything was adhered flat. That's it, pretty simple. So glad you stopped by and enjoy your day!

Challenges entered: Crafty Catz (Anything Goes/Twist: All About Girls), Inky Paws (Sketch), Just Add Ink (Inspiration Photo) and Simon Says (Anything Goes).

Birthday Bouquet Card

Good day crafty friends! The month of May has many birthdays of family and friends, including mine. I think it's fun to make a card for myself and this Birthday Bouquet Card is this years make. The main stamp set used is called Bouquet Buddies by Hello Bluebird. This set is a good mix of stamping and coloring. The cat and dog were colored with Copic markers and the bouquet of flowers were stamped with colored ink pads. Two butterflies from the Springtime stamp set were colored with Copic markers and added for more color. The happy birthday die cut was a freebie from Simon Says Stamp back in 2017. Everything was adhered to the yellow Lawn Fawn Speckled paper layered onto the scalloped Gorgeous Grape cut using a die set by Unity Stamps. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. So glad you stopped by and enjoy the rest of your day!
