Snowy Day

We’ve had snow showers in and off all day. Thankfully it’s not sticking to the ground but it’s definitely a reminder that winter is just around the corner.

The card I’m going to share today fits in with the snow theme.

I got the semi circle stitched dies from Sunny Studio Stamos and I love it…I’m sure you will see lots of cards using this die in the future! I combined it with the Snow Buddies stamp set from MFT Stamps.

I used the die to cut some white paper. For the middle piece of the die I used distress oxide inks and then splattered it with some water and then some perfect pearls to give it some texture and a little bit of shimmer.

I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers. I then cut them with my scan n cut.

For the front of the card, I stamped some snowflakes with versamark ink Alan’s heat embossed it with clear embossing powder for a subtle effect. It’s hard to see in the pictures.

I added some foam tape to the back of the white panel and added it to some navy card-stock. I then adhered it to a white card base. I inserted the blue background and used some liquid glue to secure it and then used the same liquid glue to add the images. I then stamped the sentiment on navy card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I love this stamp set and and I love this die, so I’m thrilled with how the card came out.

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!

St. Patrick’s Day card

It won’t be long until St. Patrick’s Day is here. It’s not a huge card giving day but since so many of us aren’t out and about visiting people like we used to, sending a card is a great way to keep in touch.

Lots going on…

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written here, sorry about that. There’s been so much going on I our lives that I just didn’t have the motivation. I will try to do better.
