Grateful Heart

Good morning! Today I used the October Stamp of the Month: Grateful Heart to create 2 cards. I paired my images with some pretty fall papers and a cable knit embossing folder for some warm and cozy greetings. I love this fall arrangement!

Faith-dex Psalm 17:8

Hello! I am jumping on the Memorydex bandwagon today. A few years ago I was interested in these cards but never got around to creating one. Back in 2015, Heidi Swapp came out with the punch, some dies, and cards, etc. to fit into her Memorydex box (sort of like a library card system). She also has a spinner type rack (shown here). These are based on the old Rolodex system but with fun, creative cards rather than addresses/phone numbers.

Fast forward to today… some Bible journalers are now creating these cards with faith based inspiration and bible verses on them as a fun, creative reminder to keep on display. The SNSS Creative Worship group is focusing on these a bit this month and have dubbed them “Faith-dex” cards.  So what better time for me to jump in?

Before I get to my card, there have been lots of questions about where to purchase the supplies. Here are some of the supplies I am starting with… Heidi Swapp Memorydex holder and Oval dies, Tabs dies, Everyday Kit, Monthly cards and punch. Some people make their own tray to hold them and others sell them. Just do a search for Memorydex tray.

I used the Sweet ‘n Sassy Singing Praises stamp set and stamped one of the birds onto patterned paper. This was added to a brown die cut card and I added the fringe trim with Scor-tape.

Here’s the Heidi Swapp Memorydex holder. As far as the size of these cards, there seems to be some variance on the height but as long as they are no more than 4″ wide and 3 3/4″ high (for those who use the spinning Memery-dex), then you should be good! You can cut your own cards and punch the holes on the bottom. If you don’t have the Memorydex punch yet, there are tutorials on how to measure and punch with a regular hole punch.

I made a few extras for a swap!

Have a great day!

Spring & Summer catch up

Good morning! The first day of Autumn was earlier this week but I still have some cards I made through Spring & Summer that I haven’t shared. So today is another catch up day!

My first two cards are made with the Spellbinders You’re My Type Card Kit. Love that typewriter die! The background paper here is Melissa Frances- Pink Lady.

The papers on my second one are from My Mind’s Eye- Hello Gorgeous and The Paper Studio- Be Jeweled and Bloom Boutique.

The Mother’s Day card was created with supplies from the SU! April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit. (I added a few extras)

Below I used some Melissa Frances Mixed Media Doodles paper and the Simon Says Stamp Circle of Leaves die. I also used the SU! Pansy Punch, Well Written Framelits, and Butterfly Duet punch, along with Martha Stewart frond & hydrangea punches.

Here’s a notecard with the SU! Butterfly Gala stamp set and Butterfly Duet punch. I used Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and Botanical Butterfly dsp. (The other color in the butterflies is Grapefruit Grove).

The teapot card used SU! Tea Together stamps and matching dies. The pretty die cut background is a Gina Marie Flourish Open Center BKGD die.

And my last card today also uses Gina Marie dies- Wedding Couple BKGD die and MR & MRS Word die.

And…I’m not finished catching up! Be back soon!

sing!

Good morning! Today I’m sharing some CAS cards with the Sweet ‘n Sassy Sing Loud, Scribble Flowers, and Birthday Greetings. I popped up the cloud on my first card and debated on the sentiment I would choose. I finally decided to simply let it say “sing”!

I kept my second card black & white with a pop of color in the flowers. I love this style! The large flower center has some Stickles.

Have a great day!

The shimmer….

swap cards

Hello! A few weeks ago I attended a swap with friends. Here are the two cards I took…one was for a masculine swap and the other was my “shoebox” project that I prepared for everyone to make.

The first card was for the masculine swap I participated in. This was semi-cased from a card by Tina Wardell. The background was masked and sponged. After stamping the boat from the SU! Sailing Home set, I colored it in with a black Sharpie. I also used the High Tide set and the sentiment is from Wonderful Moments. The embossing folder is Darice- Nautical Theme.

For my shoebox project, I used a freebie stamp set from MFT- Jumping Giraffe. I knew I wanted to mount him on an Ai Mini Action Wobble to make him “jump”! I also used the Die-Namics Blueprints 20 and 31 die sets. Since the giraffe was a bit smaller than the action wobble, I first placed him on a orange circle cut with a Spellbinders Pinking Circles die.

Have a great day!
