Hello! Today is another catch up day. These cards were all made at different times last year. The first one was obviously for a 50th birthday party. I used the Altenew Build-A-Flower Chrysanthemum & matching dies. Her favorite colors are royal blue and light blue so I went with that and added the “50” in silver. The background is Crafter’s Companion Eternal Elegance Cut & Emboss folder. The number dies are retired from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
Ink colors used: SU! Soft Sky, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point, Brilliant Blue, Certainly Celery, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green.
Next is an acetate tent card that I made with the Spellbinders Party Kids die. Love those Spellbinders silhouette dies! You’ll be seeing more cards with those. I also used the SNSS Birthday Greetings and Lawn Fawn’s Puffy Cloud Borders dies. The clouds are by Whimsy Stamps.
Since you can’t open the card to sign the inside, I put the sentiment on the back and left space to write a message there. The punch is SU! Decorative Label.
When we visit Rhode Island, we like to stay at a bed & breakfast. The owner there has the largest carrot collection in the world! Last year when we stayed there, she was so kind to give me a rubber stamp from her collection…the sweet carrot I’ve used here to make her a set of monogrammed notecards. (She also does stained glass and I have a perfect stamp set for that…next time!)
The carrot is an old wood mount stamp by Hooks, Lines & Inkers. The alpha letter is SNSS’s Sunshine Girl Alpha.
The last card today is a beautiful swan die from a Spellbinders card kit- Golden Swan. I love it! The paper on the bottom is also from the kit and the sentiment is from SNSS Birthday Greetings.
Hello! My card today is for the Altenew July Inspiration Challenge. I needed a birthday card early last week for a special stamping friend and I wanted to use some of the Altenew stamps I purchased. Love their flowers!
I decided to use the pretty Build-A-Flower Cattleya & matching Dies. I also used the fun Watercolor Stripes Cover Die.
Have a great day!

Hello! Here’s a CAS card when you need something simple, quick, or easily reproducible. I wanted to make a stack of thank you cards and these came together pretty quickly.
I already had the card bases embossed…I found a pile I did years ago with an old Cuttlebug embossing folder but never used. The flower is from Altenew’s Peony Bouquet and the words are from Sweet ‘n Sassy’s So Thankful set. There’s about 6 stampings on each flower but when set up on a MISTI, it goes pretty slick!
Thanks for popping in! Have a great day!

Good morning! Today I am playing catch up. I have several cards I didn’t get around to sharing from 2018. Some I will post later but here’s a quick share of a few with a bit of info on each.
My first card uses the beautiful Altenew Layered Rose die that was a free sample in a Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine a while back. The thanks die is by Echo Park and the Wonky Stitched Ovals die is by Gina Marie. The colors of cardstock I used are black, SU! Coastal Cabana, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Raspberry Ripple, Pear Pizzazz, and Mossy Meadow.
My next card uses the SU! Bird Banter stamp set and the sentiment is from Altenew’s Label Love. The Paper Studio’s Poteeka Birds embossing folder goes great with this set and I love it in the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. A little black branch was added from the SU! Petals & More Thinlits.
This fun flamingo one is a CASE of a card by Amy Koenders using the SU! Fabulous Flamingo set…love it! It uses Flirty Flamingo ink and cardstock of course!
Here’s another card with the Flirty Flamingo ink and cardstock, along with some gold paper and a gold strip of washi tape. This could be for any occasion but it was a congratulations on an engagement card. Stamps are from the SU! July 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit- What a Gem.
The butterfly card was inspired by the talented Kittie Caracciolo. I used SU!’s Watercolor Wings stamp set and Bold Butterfly Framelits. The dies are Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Circles and Spellbinders Picot Edge Circles. I also used the Martha Stewart Frond and Hydrangea punches. The butterfly was stamped with Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, and Real Red inks.
My daughter was attending a wedding of some motorcycle enthusiasts and asked me to make her a card. This was a clip art image I found online and I just added a simple stamped sentiment.
And my last card is a CAS sympathy card…not a bright card this time but rather done in softer colors. I used a Park Lane Tree embossing folder and Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly punch. The sentiment is from SU! Love & Sympathy.
Thanks for popping in….have a great day!
Back in the beginning of October I filled in to teach a class on making a 6×6 recipe card. Over the summer we stayed at a B&B in Amish country and were treated to some delicious breakfasts. One was some peach puff pancakes. The B&Bs in the area put out a few cookbooks and I purchased the current one. It didn’t have the peach version but this delicious apple one with craisins and pecans. We love it!
I decided to use the cute apple paper but didn’t want to cover it all up so I made a triangular pocket with it to tuck the recipe inside. I stamped the Concord & 9th plaid background with black ink onto red cardstock and die cut the letters with Altenew’s Bold Alphabet. I also used a tiny apple die from my stash to cut from the plaid. To finish it off, I added the cute SNSS An Apple For Cocoa digital image and a few black enamel dots.
Have a great day!
Good morning! I needed a few thank you cards recently using specific company products and I realized I forgot to photograph one or two before sending them off. Ugh. Here’s a few I came up with though. The first uses the MISTI with Altenew’s Beautiful Day stamp set. Love that flower and the MISTI makes it easy! I added a few Nuvo drops under the sentiment.
The second one uses a sweet pup from Paper Smooches’ Woofers and Tweeters. Her muzzle was stamped a second time and popped with foam tape. The sentiment is from Slang Gang. Gotta love it! Both cards have an embossed background with the Darice Plaid embossing folder.
Have a great day!
Hey friends, sorry for a third post today! The auto feed on my blog isn’t working quite right (this seems to happen about once a year…arrrgh) and so here’s a test post to see if I fixed it.
Simple card….I used the Misti to line up the flowers and stamp a bunch so I could put several cards together.
I got the Altenew Painted Flowers set here! The sentiment is an old Michael’s dollar stamp. And those are tiny Nuvo Drops to accent!
If you like sketches, here you go!
Have a great day!
Good morning! Today I have a card that was “just for fun” using Altenew’s Painted Flowers set that I picked up at The Craft Shack. I’ve loved this set since it was first released. It is so pretty with it’s painted look! The sentiment is an older wood block from Penny Black.
Each flower was stamped in 2 colors plus the black outline (3 layers) so making a set of 4 cards took a bit of time but was well worth it. The Misti tool makes it so easy!
Have a great Wednesday!
