Thoroughly Thankful

This is a card I made at my upline’s class one night last year. I believe it was the first time I had actually used the watercolor crayons. If you have not used them, they are great!

Snow Swirled

This is a really quick card to make. I’m going to CASE my own card by adding four gold brads to the corners and take the one out of the center of the star. This set is on sale for 15% off until September 30th. Doesn’t this make a cute quick Christmas card?

Inspired by Nature and Flight of the Butterfly

One of my very good customers asked me to design a card for her friend who is going through a tough time right now.  This is what I came up with. It was a really fun card to make. I used the Coluzzle to make the ovals.  I stamped the grass image twice and then stamped three butterflies. I put Dazzling Diamonds on the butterflies and sponged the edges to make them stand out. The card is much prettier in person. Oh, I attached the butterflies with dimensionals and they are popped up on the card. It’s kind of hard to see that they are popped up. I decided to try to take a photo vs. scanning. Thanks for stopping by today. Come back to visit soon.

Everyone seems to be making FRANKIE cards, so I had to join in the fun. I CASED one of Dawns Frankie cards. I just loved the stamped background and the coloring of the stars. So to CASE, I changed up the background and bit by adding Halloween stamped all over the background and made a different face for FRANKIE. I also added some eyebrows! Hope you like him. Thanks for dropping by, come back soon!

Cheers to You Spiral Card

This card was also demonstrated at convention. Again, I just had to have this set. I also added something to the inside. It’s a spiral card on the inside! Bear with me on my scan, it didn’t turn out too good. At least you get the idea though. To do the spiral, punch out 1¾” circle and then cut about 1/8” lines until you get to the center. Attach using Tombo Mono Multi Liquid Glue. This set is perfect for a girl’s night out invitation or a party invitation. Want to order one? Give me a call or email me!

Under the Stars from Convention

This is a card Brent Steele demonstrated at convention. He is always hilarious. This card was soooo cute, I had get this stamp set and CASE his card. Don’t you just love this bear? You too can own this stamp set, it is on sale 15% off the retail price until September 30th. Feel free to contact me if you would like to purchase this set.

Well, this card was not as easy to CASE as the Upsy Daisy card. If you look closely at the middle bottom of the card, it has a pull tab. This is so the bear will have moveable arms. If you move the tab up and down his arms will flap. It took me at least three tries to get those cute bears at the bottom of the card. I kept forgetting to add or remove the sticky note! GOSH! I also found out when I was ready to attach the bear in the middle of the card, I wasn’t suppose to stamp the bear on my actual card! Oh well, we never make mistakes do we? It is all a part of our creativity. So my bear is flapping so fast he has four arms! Brent had hemp twine and a Designer Brad attached to his card. I decided to leave that off and add the grrreat! Thanks for visiting, come back again!
