Butterfly Thank You Card

A happy hello to you! Over the last few days we have received some much needed rain and I'm very grateful. Our yard was starting to turn brown and my plants were definitely suffering. It's been a dreadfully hot July, so I'm happy to see this month end. 

This Butterfly Thank You Card is simple and easy. The big butterfly makes a wonderful focal impact. It's from the retired Beautiful Day stamp set by Stampin' Up!. It was colored with Copic markers and then fussy-cut. The papers are also retired by Stampin' Up! from the Garden Impressions dsp. Lastly, the Thank You sentiment was stamped and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. That's it and thanks for stopping by!🦋

Card for Veterinarian

Hello! Last year we rescued an 11 year cat from the shelter and he ended up being pretty sick. Our veterinarians were key to his recovery. We took him yesterday for his one year check up and he is in great health. I made this card for our veterinarians to thank them for saving his life. I also gave them a candy jar full of Life Savers, it seemed appropriate. 😊 

The image is called Elsie and Butterflies from Wild Rose Studio and was colored with Copic markers. Three different patterned papers were used. The butterfly paper is from the Paige Evans Go the Scenic Route paper pad from American Crafts and the polka dot papers were from my scrap bin. A sentiment from the Adopt Don't Shop stamp set from Whimsy Stamps was added and that's it. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Card with Flowers

Good day! One of my friends asked me to make her a few Thank You Cards, so that's what I've been working on. Here is a Thanks Card with Flowers that I made using Pretty Pink Posh Spring Flowers stamp set and a Thanks Scallop Border die from Simon Says Stamp. Copic markers were used to color the flowers and then they were die cut with the coordinating dies. Some black and white polka dot paper provides a good contrast and everything was adhered flat. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day! 🌸

Life Stinks Card

Well... life doesn't stink all the time, but we all have those days. The new card kit by Stampin' Up! called The Best Remedy Kit is perfect for last minute feel better/encouragement type cards. I don't buy a lot of kits because I like creating my own designs. But, it's nice to have a few on hand for unexpected occasions. For this Life Stinks Card I altered the layout given in the directions. The only thing stamped on this card is the sentiment. The image came colored, so all I really had to do is adhere everything together. Simple and quick. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Ewe Christmas Card

Good day and thanks for stopping by my blog. My parents raised sheep for nearly 30 years. So, when I find cute sheep stamps I tend to add them to my stash. Today I'm sharing this Ewe Christmas Card featuring the Fleece Navidad stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. It's designed by Crissy Armstrong, she creates the cutest stamps. This stamp has been in my stash for many years, but this was the first time I inked it up. Copic markers were used to color the image and then it was adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock by Stampin' Up!. All the patterned papers are from the Christmas Magic paper pad by Echo Park (2021). That's it! The design is simple and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. Thanks again for stopping by!🎄

Christmas Treeline Card

Hello! Today I'm sharing this simple Christmas Treeline Card I made using the Merry Christmas Treeline stamp from Unity Stamps. It was free with purchase sometime last year and this is the first time I've inked it up. It was paired with Christmas papers from the Christmas Magic paper pad by Echo Park (2021). The image is super easy to color, so this card came together fairly quickly. Three punched snowflakes were added for detail and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day. 🎄

Challenges entered: ABC Christmas (N is for New, O if for Old) stamp and papers used are New., Crafty Gals Corner (Christmas in July), Craftyhazelnut's Christmas (Anything Goes/Use Some Red) and Sweet Stampers (Christmas in July). 🎅

The patterned papers are from the Happy Christmas paper pad by Carta Bella (2021). Everything was adhered flat with a few snowflakes and sentiment for detail. Thanks for stopping by!

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!
