Beautiful Day Butterfly Card

A happy hello and glad you stopped by my blog. Today I'm sharing this Beautiful Day Butterfly Card  that I made for the color challenge at Inky Paws to use: Crimson Red, Cobalt Blue, Turquoise Blue and White. So, I used the shades of blue to color the butterflies from the Monarchs stamp set by Newton's Nook. To add red I used a piece of polka dot paper that was cut into a large half circle and adhered to the blue vine paper. A sentiment from the Monarchs stamp set was added and that's it. Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Sending Thoughts Card

Good day! It's time to say good-bye to June and I thought I would share another card I made for a card drive. The card drive is for women going through treatments and you can find all the details HERE. This Sending Thoughts Card features some pretty flower stamps from the Spring Flowers stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh. The images were colored with Copic markers to coordinate with the Echo Park patterned paper from the Have Faith paper pad (2018). The sentiment is retired Stampin' Up! from the Perfect Pennants stamps set. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

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:

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!
