St. Patrick’s Day Girl Card

Hi all,

Well March is moving right along and with it comes St. Patrick’s Day.  So I have a cute St. Patrick’s Day card to share with you today featuring a girl leprechaun?

Not sure if she’s a leprechaun or not, but she certainly looks festive doesn’t she?  Speaking of festive, look at that patterned paper.  It comes from the Pot O’ Gold collection from Doodlebug Design.  I still have some of this in my stash, so of course I have to use it.

For the focal scene I created the hillside using some stitched hills die to cut the patterned paper.  The little girl and the gold coins are stickers from the same Doodlebug collection.  For the sentiment I used an old Hero Arts set called Happy Greetings.  It’s a tiny set with a few sentiments, but it’s perfect for this card since I don’t have a lot of sentiment sets that include St. Patrick’s Day.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sending Prayers Card

Hi all,

I have another sympathy card to share with you today.

I used some patterned papers from my stash.  For the focal sentiment I used the Prayers stamp set and die from Simon Says Stamp.  I stamped the “sending hugs and” part of the sentiment onto a small strip of card stock.  I used the Prayers die to cut out the word multiple times and stacked the die-cuts together to create a dimensional sentiment.

Here’s a closer look at that focal area.  I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Dog Sympathy Card

Hi all,

I’ve been working on replenishing cards in certain categories where I was running low on.  This week I’ve been replenishing Sympathy cards.  Today I have a dog sympathy card to share with you.

It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I first experienced the loss of beloved pet.  I never realized just how deep this loss can be.  I was thinking of that pet, our dog Shelby, while making this card.  I started out with a kraft card base.  For the patterned paper I dug deep into my stash of patterned paper, something else I’ve been trying to do lately, use up some of my stash.

For the focal I used dies and stamp sets that I’ve had for a while but hadn’t used yet.  The paw print was die cut using the Pet Accents dies from My Favorite Things.  For the sentiment I used the Paw Prints On Our Hearts stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Speedy Recovery Card

Hi all,

As I mentioned last time I’ve been working on my Get Well inventory and also trying to use up some of my old stash of paper, so I have another cute Get Well card to share with you today.

I started out with some Warm Cocoa card stock for the card base from Gina K. Designs. All of the patterned paper is from my stash, the last bits and pieces of a 6×6 pad.

For the focal I used the adorable turtle image from Lawn Fawn’s On the Mend Stamp set.  It’s a much older stamp set, but it’s one of my favorites especially for Get Well cards.  I used my copics to color the image and used the coordinating die to cut it out.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink and comes from that same Lawn Fawn stamp set. I embellished the card with Nuvo drops which coordinated really well with the pinkish-reddish patterned paper.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Are You Cured Yet Card

Hi all,

So there are two things I’ve been working on this past week.  One is trying to finish up some of my older 6×6 pads.  You know how we are, if there’s just a couple of sheets of paper left or a few scraps, we can’t bear to part with it.  This means that I have lots of 6×6 pads with just a few sheets left in them.  I’m determined to use these up this year.  The second thing is filling in some gaps in my card inventory.  I’m pretty low on get well and sympathy cards right now.  Hence, the get well cards I have to share with you today.

I started out with Warm Cocoa card stock from Gina K. Designs for the card base and to mat the different panels on the card.  The patterned paper, as I mentioned, is from my stash.  I love the bright cheerful colors, perfect for a get well card I thought.

For the focal I used the adorable little pig image and sentiment from My Favorite Thing’s The Whole Herd stamp set.  I colored him in with my copics, then die-cut the image with the coordinating dies.  I used my comics to color a bit of mud beneath him. I added some Lawn Fawn twine to the bottom of the panel and called this one  done.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
