I’m still here!!

Its been a crazy time lately. Lots of changes have been happening, including sending my youngest daughter off to California for 18 months. My oldest daughter is now renting our basement apartment so we have been helping her set that up. We are also beginning to remodel the main floor of our home so chaos is the best way to describe things! So I haven’t had a lot of energy left over to post on my blog but I’m hoping to change that. I’ve still been making cards and listing them in my Etsy shop, but just haven’t posted any.

Here’s a couple of cute new baby cards I made yesterday.

For a baby girl
For a baby boy

The pictures aren’t great due to the gloominess of the weather outside! Its actually snowing outside today! Ahh…springtime in Utah!

The cards were very simple to make. I chose some patterned paper to use for the stroller and also for the background.

I embossed some white cardstock with dots to give some texture to the cards. I love embossing folders, they add so much interest to a card.

I added a bow to the stroller and also some enamel dots to the wheels. For the sentiment I stamped a simple “Congratulations” and finished it off with an enamel heart.

You can find these cards and more at my etsy shop here: http://jasmineblossomcrafts.etsy.com

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will be posting much more regularly, I promise!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Hello all! I hope that all of the mothers out there are having a good day. We are having a quiet day. The girls and my husband gave me some cards and bought me some flowers for the front porch and the deck. One of my daughters is making dinner and we will have a relaxing evening watching a movie together.

Here are the flowers we chose. I think they are so pretty.

Here are our baby birds…they are growing! Its so fun to go out on the deck and to hear them chirping everytime their mom comes to feed them.

So, since it is Mother’s Day, you may expect me to post a Mother’s Day card! Well, you would be wrong! I made a Father’s Day card the other day and thats the one I will share today. It’ll be here before we know it.

I find it hard to make more masculine cards but this one came together quite easily for me. In the Scrapping For Less kit a few months ago, it was all masculine papers and stamps and thats what helped this happen so easily.

So, the paper that I used came from Scrapping For Less. I love their paper as it is a good quality cardstock and it has a sheen to it that I really like. I used a window die and chose some tool themed paper to fill in the spaces. I used the Sunny Studio “tool time” stamp set that came in the kit.

I colored the saw image with copic markers and added some enamel dots to finish it off.

See you soon!
