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!

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!

Old Buzzard 70th Birthday Card

Hello! It's been busy at my house and crafting has taken a backseat to other priorities. However, my dad turns 70 in a few days and I needed to make his birthday card. The Old Buzzard stamp set from Whimsy Stamps was perfect for this occasion. Copic markers were used to color the images and then they were die cut with the coordinating dies. The Connected Tile die from Whimsy Stamps was used to give the buzzards a place to perch. The background paper is from the It's a Party paper pad by Pink & Main (it's been in my stash for awhile). To finish off the card the number 70 was stamped using an Echo Park classic numbers stamp set. Then it was punched with a 1" circle and layered with a green scalloped circle. That pretty much sums it up. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you have a lovely day!
