The Balmy Blue card was inspired by Artisan Mikaela Titheridge #craftyoinkpen project. The feathers are snipped from the Free as a Bird DSP. The sentiment is from #WPlus9 So Very stamp set and coordinating die.  I have had the stamp set and recently purchased the die. ♥

This fun fall card was inspired by a card from #Chase&Main as part of #StampinThroughtheCatalog on Instagram.

This Terracotta Tile Note Card was embossed using #Altenew Dotted Swirls Base Plate. I love the subtle texture this adds. The embellishment is a simple flower from SU To a Wild Rose Stamp Set and Coordinating Die. The vellum leaves are from the Leaf Punch.

My final note card was inspired by a project from Anne Marie Hile #stampinanne. I love her work and am so glad to see her creating again. I think this is my favorite.

In the end I created all 20 notes cards making 5 of each design. I did not add sentiments to 3 of the 4 so they can be used on the fly for birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, or anything in between. My only disappointment in these note cards is the weight of the paper. While perfect for the envelopes it is too thin for the cards therefore I added a piece of Whisper White card stock above the 3/4″ of DSP you see sticking out under the scallop edge. This provided the weight I wanted for the card.

I hope I inspired you to get creating.


Honey Bee Stamps – Camp Trailer Card

When I first saw this adorable glamper I knew I had to have it. I need to point out that I am not a camper. I have not camped since I went to girl scout camp many moons ago. Yet I think glampers are so stinking’ cute!

I thought it would be great for creating Happy Vacation, Happy Retirement, type of cards so into my cart it went. 

Honey Bee Stamps die set called Camp Trailer Card

I CASE’d Emily Midgett for my first creation with this set. I used Stampin’ Up! Brushed Silver, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock, Basic Black and Gray Granite card stock for my project.

Don’t you think this would be a fun encouragement card to receive in your mailbox. It would certainly make me smile.

Thanks for stopping by.


Come to Gather Together

Today’s project was CASE’d (Copy And Selectively Edit) from the catalog (page 46).

I used retired DSP and the Gather Together Bundle available September 4th for the card. Using Early Espresso ink stamp the large maple leaf all over the Early Espresso card base.  

The color palette is Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake.

The catalog version used the smaller maple leaves on either side of the large maple leaf. I created two large leaves. The Crumb Cake version was stamped in Early Espresso and then with a blender pen I drew the ink out from the veins of the leaf. The other leaf was heat embossed in Copper Stampin’ Embossing Powder. I added a retired Copper Acorn embellishment with some linen thread as a finishing touch.

And don’t forget to add a little pizzazz to the inside of your card. I love to carry the design to the inside of the card.

Have you seen the new Holiday Catalog? What are you most excited to create with from this catty? I love hearing from you.



Sneak Peek! Gather Together

The Gather Together Bundle gives you all the elements for fall cards; textured leaves, pumpkins, and warm sentiments.

The card was inspired by Susan Wong’s card from the August Crafty Carrot Collective program. These Artisans are so talented; I throughly enjoy learning from them. 

The retired DSP was crumpled up and distressed. It was layered onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock and both were adhered to a Soft Suede card base. 

I did a 2nd generation stamp of the large leaf in Pumpkin Pie. (This means I stamped the image on another piece of card stock before stamping for my project.) Then I cut out the leaf with the coordinating die. 

Next I cut the two smaller leaves with the die that cuts and embosses. For the Very Vanilla cut I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to ink the die before cutting the leaf.

Before adhering the large maple leaf with Stampin’ Dimensionals I ran a strip of snail adhesive and added Copper Metallic Thread. Then I added the other elements with MonoGlue. The Leaves Trinkets and Linen Thread are the finishing touches.

Don’t forget to add a bit of love to the inside of your card as well.
