I Like Your Style!



Hi, Friends.........

I am here with two masculine cards using the Graphic 45 "A Proper Gentleman" collection. I love these vintage-style car images. One of these will go to my hubby for Father's Day. I am safe posting them, though, because he doesn't look at my blog. Ha.

I was inspired by the fabulous June card sketch from Stick it Down.


I am entering this in the Graphic 45 June Selfie challenge as these cards reflect some of the eclectic vintage antiques we own and enjoy.....including an old farm truck out next to the driveway. :)

Here are the two cards I made:











And the other one....

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 "A Proper Gentleman" collection

Versafine ink in Onyx Black
Distress Ink in Black Soot

Graphic 45 Baby Cards




Hi, Friends......

I am here with a set of baby cards I made with the Graphic 45 "Time to Celebrate" collection. You might recall that I take some of my cards to our little church and people can "buy" them by donating to the Hope Center (our local pro-life pregnancy center) where I volunteer. All the proceeds go to the Center....I do not keep any for supplies.

This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart and so I am delighted to be entering this set in the Graphic 45 June Selfie Challenge (#G45Selfie). This theme does not require a selfie photo, but should reflect something about yourself.  It's perfect because I had a request for a Baby Girl card this week......so this project not only reflects an important issue to me, but helps me raise funds for the Hope Center...with baby cards. 💓💓💓

Here's one of the cards by itself.......
Do you like how I used two bows on the edge? It reminds me of a sweet Baby Book cover.



Here's the set of three with a mix and match of the different patterns in the Graphic 45 collection.






Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 "Time to Celebrate" collection
Distress Ink in Walnut stain to ink edges
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Darice/Core'dinations cardstock

Thank you for taking time to visit my blog. Your comments brighten my day!!!

Summer Bird Stamped Tissue Gift Wrap



Hi, Friends......

Are you up for an easy and fun project that can include the kids? Recently I was watching my 8-yr old granddaughter for the day and we had a power outage for around 3 hours. It turned out to be a wonderful blessing in disguise because we got to do a bunch of low-tech kinds of activities together. (....which I think kids should be doing instead spending hours on their electronics, anyway!!)

 
I had a new bird field guide that I wanted to wrap up and give to our pastor's wife, so my granddaughter and I (with the aid of flashlights) stamped bird images on some brightly-colored used tissue gift wrap that I had previously flattened and stored folded.  So fun and cute!!

(We prob should have stamped more images on the tissue since they look a bit sparse on this small gift, but it looked like we had a lot on there on the big unfolded sheet! Oh, well...part of the blank space got covered with a sticky note, anyway.)


Supplies used include:
Stamplorations -Trendy Birds stamp set
Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Desert Night and Dusk
Used Tissue Gift Wrap

Hope you liked this fun idea for gift wrap....and great way to reuse that pretty tissue that I bet you save just like I do!! lol.... Thank you for stopping by today.

65th Wedding Anniversary


Hi, Friends......

I am struggling to get this card blogged because of my injured hand.....sprained my fingers when I fell and bent three fingers completely backwards trying to catch myself. YOWCH!! Talk about a hand that is painfully swollen and black and blue!!! Ugh. I don't recommend it.

A very special couple at church is celebrating their 65th Wedding Anniversary this weekend. WOW.... SIXTY-FIVE YEARS together...what a blessed milestone!!! So.....despite a messed up hand, I just had to make a card for them. It had to be simple because of my injury, but I love how it turned out.


Sorry I can't dig up links to the supplies, but I used some American Crafts glittered numbers and puffy hearts, DCWV paper, and Sizzix dies for the gold frame.

Hope you enjoyed seeing it and I hope they like it!! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers for my hand.

Christmas Toys for Kids - Rudolph Days



Hi, Friends.......

UGH....I am typing this with an injured hand.....

(2 badly sprained fingers plus a 3rd one that is also likely sprained....still not sure there isn't something broken inside the hand.....and it happened on a weekend so, of course, I didn't go to the doctor...sigh) 
.....so please forgive errors and lackluster conversation in this post. Crafting was a trick, but typing with these fingers is even worse!!!!! OUCH.

Background is repurposed used gift wrap tissue decoupaged onto kraft cardstock. The red frames for the images are cut from a repurposed used red envelope.

 




Used MFT Sketch #439








Supplies used include:
Various small Christmas stamps of toys, etc from stash (some Hero Arts)

That's about all the typing I can handle for this post. I have one other post still to do. Ugh.... Thank you for stopping by. Say a prayer for my hand if you think of it, please! Thanks!!

For a Special Mother - Lavender Garden


Hi, Friends......

Squeezing in a late evening card.....and hoping all the ladies out there had a nice Mother's Day! Even you gals who don't have kids of your own have a huge influence on the young people in your circles. So I am honoring ALL ladies today with a special note of appreciation for the many things you do for those around you.

I made a pretty card with a DCWV Chateau Lavender patterned cardstock panel. I love the restful look of this stack on kraft. I think it looks esp nice with a touch of vintage style ribbon and a sprig of die-cut foliage.




Supplies used include:
Mother's Day stamp from my stash prob from dollar bin at a craft store
Versafine ink in Toffee
Panel from DCWV Chateau Lavender stack
Verve - Sprightly Sprigs die set (retired)
Ribbons and shimmer cardstock from my stash
Core'dinations/Darice cardstock for card base

Hope you liked this card. Have a lovely Mother's Day!!!

Kentucky Derby Party Invites


Hi, Friends......

I am here to share a super-fun project I did for a friend. She was off to the races at the beginning of the month.....her first time to travel to the Kentucky Derby. But back in January, she had a Kentucky Derby party so some of us could come over, eat, and watch the movie "Secretariat" together. I had the Graphic 45 "Off to the Races" collection and offered to make invitations. 


Things have been so crazy the last few months that I never got them blogged. When I saw Dar and Diane were having a Kentucky Derby Hat inspiration board on their challenge blog, I knew I needed to hurry while there was still time!

Here you can see the front of one of the invitations.......no two were alike. You can see the inside of another in the background. It was so much fun mixing and matching a couple of different Graphic 45 collections....(Cafe Parisian and Off to the Races).




Here's the entire group of 12 invitations. (You can click on the photo to enlarge it if you wish to see them in more detail.) My friend loved them, by the way!!


Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 "Off to the Races" and "Cafe Parisian" collections
DCWV Cardstock

Hope you enjoyed this set of invitations. It was really fun to make. Hope my friend had good luck on whichever horse she put her $5 on last weekend!! LOL...

Cup of Love - Happy Birthday



Hi, Friends......

I am here with one more card for tonight. I used one of Julee Tilman's wonderful coffee digi images from back when Verve was still up and running. HOW I MISS VERVE!!!!

Does anyone remember Add a Little Dazzle craft metal sheets????? Do you still have any of these lovely pieces hidden away in the back of your stash??? I have quite a few sheets in different colors carefully hoarded away, since it is not made anymore. :( 


Well, I threw caution to the wind and snipped a very tiny piece off the edge of one of my pink sheets to die cut some hearts for this card. I hope to get brave in the future and use my craft metal sheets every once in awhile.....no guarantees, though! Ha.



Supplies used include:
Verve Stamps - Love From Me digital stamp set (retired)

Happy Birthday, Pretty Lady with Blossoms and Butterflies



Hi, Friends......

I am here with a springy butterfly card to share. I fell in love with this particular piece of DCWV patterned paper years ago.....prob the reason I purchased this stack!! Pretty pieces like this are so handy for making quick cards. Here I layered the background, added an embossed sentiment, ribbon, and butterflies for a simple but lovely card.



I made another very similar card with white and silver ribbon. Which card do you like better??? I prefer the first one with more pink. :)


Supplies used include:
Unity Stamp Co. - "Happy birthday, pretty lady" from Sabrina {fashionista}
Versamark ink
Ranger - Embossing Powder silver

Double Embossed Pink Butterfly Card


Hi, Friends.......

I am here with one more shaped card. This time it is a pink butterfly birthday card with double embossing. I love doing backgrounds like this where I dry emboss, coat the raised parts with Versamark ink with my brayer, sprinkle on embossing powder, and then zap with my heat gun. Magical!!



In case you are wondering how the pointy bottom of this card is supposed to stand up for display, I will show you the unfinished inside. Notice how I have cut off the pointy part of the back of the folded card base. That gives it a sturdy flat surface to rest on while  the front balances easily on that fancy point.

Supplies used include:
Sizzix - Fancy Labels die set
Darice - Ranunculus embossing folder
Versamark ink
Pink sparkle embossing powder
Winnie & Walter - Sentimental: Gift stamp set
Versafine ink in Onxy Black
Metallic butterfly sequins
Ribbon from stash
Core'dinations/Darice Cardstock

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you are having a lovely spring at your house. The fruit trees here are in full bloom and the hummingbirds are very, very busy working the feeders and the trees. Hummingbirds hungrily devour aphids and mosquitoes and other small insect pests, so I like to encourage them to visit my yard. :)

Country Kitchen Tea - Happy Birthday



Hi, Friends.......

I'm here to share a sweet and simple birthday card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.



It's another circular card that I made with a scalloped die. I like this one for shaped cards because this creation can easily stand on a couple of the scallops that I position at the bottom of the project. One thing about shaped cards, though.....I certainly have a smaller canvas play on. I can't add nearly as much "stuff" to my card as usual. Eeek!!

I am very excited that I *finally* opened up some tea-themed wallpaper border paper that my daughter picked up at a thrift store for me a long time ago. It's been in my Coffee/Tea stash for ages and I am glad to use it here today. It reminds me of a sunny country kitchen....esp with these butter and sky blue colors.


Supplies used include:
Sizzix - Circles, Scallop die set
Cardz-TV - Potpourri stamp set
Versamark Ink
Blue Embossing Powder
Thrift Store Wallpaper Border Paper
Core'dinations/Darice Cardstock
Crinkle Ribbon from stash

Happy sunshiny spring!!! Thanks for stopping by on the hop.
