Sunset Galaxy Sky

Posted by on Aug 26, 2017 in Sympathy, Techniques

This card is a near CASE from Linda Bauwin, named as Sunset Galaxy Technique.  When I saw the technique, I knew I had to learn it and share it.  This technique will be shared at my next Technique class coming up next week.  I will add more details on my calendar on the week-end. I love the colors Linda used and before I even saw her card, I knew I wanted to use Lovely As A Tree and to my surprise, that’s the same stamp set she used.  I thought I’d make this a sympathy card as it is easier to make them when you don’t need them right away. Thanks for visiting.  Hope you can come back tomorrow to see another great card featuring Lovely As a Tree.  Happy...

This is just a wee sampling of the August Paper Pumpkin kit.  This month’s kit included supplies for 8 cards, 8 envelopes and a lovely gift box with an acetate lid, a tag and a ribbon to tie the gift box.  What I especially loved about this kit was the photopolymer stamps, which can be used over and over again! Detailed step by step instructions are included, as well, a video is also available to see how to put the kit together.  If you’ve never tried Paper Pumpkin, then there’s a deal for you:  Buy one month and get the second month free.  If you’d like more information about Paper Pumpkin, please ask or check it out on You Tube.

The classic Lovely As A Tree stamp set has been around the longest!  This beautiful card, created by Jackie Bultje, was a swap at the Canadian Business Conference in Toronto which I attended on January 20-21, 2017.  Beautiful colors with gold and silver, along with soft hills and skies to make this a perfect Sympathy card. I’ll be sharing more great swaps and maybe even a video over the next week to show you great ideas and more! Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

With Sympathy

The Detailed Floral Thinlits, layered white on white, are perfect for this special card I made for my friend, Carell.  The frame around the sentiment is from  a Rose Garden thinlit which is layered on an oval from the Ovals Collection.  A little Pool Party for some color and a few pearls scattered about the front of the card. If you like this card, you might want to invest in the  Detailed Floral Thinlits,  currently on sale  for only $19.50 on the Clearance Rack–what a great bargain!  This die set is very versatile and can be used to make a variety of beautiful cards!  See lots of great samples on Pinterest and contact me today to place your order, or simply order Online!    Thanks for visiting today.  ...

Floral Phrases

Posted by on Sep 6, 2016 in Big Shot, Sympathy

  Today I’m thinking about my dear friend, Gail Lowe, who lost her battle to cancer.  I originally saw a similar design on Pinterest and loved it so decided to add my own touch to Floral Phrases along with Thoughts & Prayers. The In Color, Sweet Sugarplum is such a lovely color!  Do you like it?  The photo doesn’t show the Shimmery cardstock detail on this card but it is absolutely beautiful! Thanks for visiting today. Happy...

Thoughtful Branches For You

Posted by on Aug 10, 2016 in Big Shot, Sympathy

The Exclusive Thoughtful Branches Bundle, available through August 31 only or while supplies last, was used to create this lovely card!  The sentiment used on this card comes from Feather Together, made especially for my friend who lost her brother to cancer yesterday.  The gold embossed sentiment was a perfect fit for this simple yet elegant card. When the Thoughtful Branches was first introduced, I didn’t think I’d get it but when I started seeing so many beautiful samples, I had to have it!  And now, even though this set is available for a limited time only, it’s definitely a keeper! If you haven’t got yours yet, you can place an order through my online store, or contact me directly to place your order.  Thanks for visiting today!  Happy crafting!...
