Enjoy the Little things

Want a fast and easy card to put together? Seriously less than 5 minutes. I used a piece of Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack, wrapped string around it, mounted it on a black card stock base, added a few embellishments and stamped it with Versamark with the new Layering Love stamp set. Then I put white embossing powder on it and heat set it. DONE!!!!!

Live Laugh Love

One of my favorite sayings and such a fast easy card to put together. Every component on this card is new product. Don't you just love the new In Colors? I find them very festive. For the base I used Emerald Envy, the first layer is from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack, and the ribbon is the new, beautiful Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon all from the new catalog. The stamp set is called Layering Love. I stamped the words with Versamark and used white embossing powder set with the heat tool.

Enjoy the Little Things

A simple watercolor card I painted using one of the new stamp sets called Layering of Love, the new washi tape from the Pop of Pink suite, and the stamp set called Kinda Ecletic. Starting out, I stamped the saying in VersaMark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder then I gently covered the watercolor paper in water and then letting Daffodil Delight flow from the top and continued with Melon Mambo towards the bottom.

Watercolor Butterfly Video

Good morning everyone. Be kind...this is my first video. Let me tell you it is a work in progress and talk about time consuming and learning!!! I have soooooooooo much respect for the gals and guys out there who do this all the time. I finally got my PVC setup complete and then it was just one thing after the other. Not enough storage on my I phone so up to the Apple store I went to have them help me out with that. Came home and tried again and still wouldn't upload...not enough space. So finally found a way to get my I Pad to stay on top of my stand!! So I got the first one filmed and it was 20 minutes long. WHAT????? I can't do started filming again. Then I noticed some tiny bug walking across my paper. You've got to be kidding me!! Honestly I should have left was almost too funny!! The good thing is I got 8, yes 8 cards finished trying to do this one video!! I didn't put the dimensions of the card on the video because that is my new thing to learn but I have enclosed them in this post. Happy Thursday everyone!!

Lindee's First Communion Card and Gift Bag

My little granddaughter will receive her First Holy Communion this Sunday so I made her this pretty card and gift bag. I searched Pinterest for some ideas and came up with this combination. I changed each idea around just a little. You can find the link for the card  here. And the gift bag here

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board for the bag.

This cross is retired but is called the Trefoil cross. The Designer Series Paper is also retired but it's always been one of my favorites.

I used the circle framelits for the chalice cup and cut the ends off. It was the third one up from the smallest circle. For the host, I used the 1 3/8" punch and cut it out of white card stock and then cut 2 of the same size out of white vellum and laid it on top. For the leaves, I used some vanilla vellum and used the bird punch. The butterflies were punches and I embossed them first.

Paper wreath for my Stampin Studio

This is a paper flower wreath I made for my Stampin Studio inspired by Erica Cerwin. It was time consuming and my thumb was getting pretty sore by the time I took the bone folder to each and everyone of those petals. But the end result was pretty. I used some of the new Designer Series Paper which will be available to order on June 1st. It's called Affectionately Yours.
