A Flowery Hello

I made today's card with two new EFs (Paper Studio Ogee and Spellbinders Butterfly Kisses) and a new Sizzix Stampin' Up Flower Frenzy Big Z L Die; the sentiment is a die from Little Yellow Bicycle. A peachy double-looped bow and pearl finishes it.  The paper is double sided from Stampin' Up, so when I ran the paper though the die, which has both the flower and the foliage, the peachy heart paper for the flower was cut, and the reverse side of the paper was green, so I didn't have to do a separate foliage cut. That was nice.  :o)

Here is the card:

Sending You Hugs and Kisses

I had so much fun making the two cards on today's post; they are for two of my granddaughters, ages 5 and 3.

The die and stamp set were on the current issue of Tattered Lace magazine; you probably know that each issue comes with a free die, but this issue had this adorable bear, PLUS stamps that go along with it. I got it At Joan's Gardens from Terri Urban, the owner. She usually charges less for dies and stamps and all sorts of crafting products, plus she only charges her cost of shipping, so I'm a very satisfied customer.

Here are the cards:

Bright and Cheerful


Today's card was made for a sick child in a hospital. I have a friend who makes cards for several charities, and children's hospitals is one of them. Would you believe that she makes 300 cards every month????? I can't match that, but love making cards to add to those she sends off to her charities. Plus, she is so much fun! It's a day of joy and laughter when we craft together.

:o)

I got another one of these folding card dies at Michael's because they had another 60% off coupon; it was normally $29.95, but I got it for $12.99, just like the other one. These cards are so much fun to make; they look a bit daunting, but in reality, they are super easy. This die is similar to the square one, but more curvy...

Here's the card:


The white circle on the inside of the card is where the sender would write a very short note:

Using Forgotten Note Papers

Today I made a card using some lovely embossed note papers that I have had for years, way back before I started making my own cards. They are lovely papers, but I had forgotten I had them.

In addition to the embossed paper, I used a Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly Punch, a "Thank You" stamp, pink ink, some ribbon and liquid pearls to accent the butterflies:  It is hard to tell, but the flowers are actually dimensional.

When God Made You...

This little card was made with a sweet sentiment from TLC Creations. Also used were Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly Punch, EK Success Flowers and Leaves Punch (which was a new punch) and a light green ribbon. It was very simple to make (once I planned it all out in my head!).

Winter Weather

Today's card was so much fun because I used a new Sizzix die called Framelits Flip-Its. It was priced at $30 but thanks to a 60% off coupon at Michael's, I got it for $12.99!

I used a Stampin' Up mitten stamp, a Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch All over the Page punch and a Darice snowflake EF; the inside blank square is left without embellishment because that's where a small note can be added.

Here is the card; the left edge looks a bit wonky, but in reality, it's not.
