Two New Club Cards

Here are two of the cards we will be making for my March 14th Stampin’ Club–it’s not to late to sign up and join us!! ๐Ÿ™‚


This is a nice and simple card–lots of layers make it look difficult! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I case’d it off of Michele Force’s blog and just changed the colors up a bit to reflect spring!


Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes

Ink: Rose Red

Paper/Cardstock: Raspberry Tart DSP, Pretty In Pink, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White

Other: Word Window Punch, Pretty In Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Adhesive




It’s been a LONG while since I’ve attempted a Shaker Card and I found this one on Splitcoast Stampers and decided to give it a try!


Stamps: God’s Beauty (Hostess Level 1 Set)

Ink: Kiwi Kiss

Paper/Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White

Other: Square Scallop Punch, Mini Marbles, Thick Adhesive Tape, Transparency Sheet, Kiwi Kiss Grosgrain Ribbon, Adhesive

Thanks for looking–I’m off to make 2-3 more cards for my club! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I woke up today to discover Valentine’s from my son:


and my hubby who was trying so hard to be crafty–I LOVE this card! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I think he used Real Red, Pixie Pink, the new Heart to Heart Punch and several retired Valentine’s Day sets and some American Crafts Ribbon for his card–he came out of my crafting room complaining that I needed more variety in my Valentine’s Day stamp sets! ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL!


So, I thought that I’d better get on with making him a card:



Sorry the pictures are so dark–we hung up a blanket on the window to help keep out the cold air and it made the room very dark, not much I can do about that until Spring! ๐Ÿ™‚ I added glitter to the wheels, head and tail lights, front window and around the edge of the hearts for some sparkle and to tie in with the silver cording.ย  Inside I wrote 1st Corinthians 13–we had it read at our wedding and I just love that verse! ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies: (all SU!)

Stamps: Loads of Love

Cardstock: Brilliant Blue, Ski Slope DSP, Whisper White

Ink: Staz-On Jet Black, Brilliant Blue, Summer Sun, Regal Rose, Real Red, Basic Black

Other: Silver Cord, Sampin’ Dimensionals, Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, Sakura Gelly Roller Pen in Silver Glitter (not SU!)

Hope you enjoy your Valentine’s Day!ย  I got to get my hair cut! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  We just finished making my hubby a big plate of frosted brownies–of course we had to try some! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cards for a Friend…

I love when my friend Tammy asks me to make her some more thank you cards!ย  She usually says make them pink and brown, but other than that, no boundries to work in! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  I saw this paper from K&Company that I got in the summer and it just seemed Tammy-like to me! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Here are the cards I made–hope you like them Tammy!ย  (Sorry the some of the photos are a little dark–my flash was giving me problems–they are perfect IRL!)
