On the wings of …. a Butterfly!

14 Sep
Anyone else remember that song?  “On the Wings of Love”?
Hardly the inspiration for my card, but the title hit me when I was getting ready to write this post.
On the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge blog our new challenge this week is Borders and Edgers.
I tried to incorporate that theme into my card today.
I am still using my New Release dies and still very much in love with them all.
I love how colorful this is.  I think it fits the saying perfectly.

I Heart {ippity} Wednesday Wowzer

21 Mar
Hello everyone..
I am here with a cute card today.  I am using Mojo Monday’s Sketch #233
Here is the sketch.
I turned the sketch and used it like this:
I am using the set called:
Simply Home
I made this for some ladies that work at my local bank.
Have you ever made a card for your bank teller?  Well when you live in a small town, the local bank workers, store clerks, gas station attendants, well they are our neighbors & friends.
Yesterday the ladies at my bank helped me out tremendously with an issue one of my children caused with my bank account.
I had done all I could to resolve it without any luck, and went to them and they took it  over and helped me fix a pretty serious boo boo!
Now a days with technology, it is pretty scary what kids can do just by clicking a button.
I learned what to do to avoid that again, but thankfully my local friends were there to help me out too!
I hope they like my little card, thank {ippity} for such adorable stamps to work with!
I am also entering this in the GHWI challenge # 17
THINGS WITH WINGS..because I do have a bird on this and birds do have wings, right??

Gel A Tins Child’s Card Kit

8 Mar

I have such a fun project and a story to share today!

Be prepared…LOT OF PICTURES!!

I am using the set called ELEPHANT GARDEN (ahem, again?  Yes, I LOVE THIS SET!)

I am using this tin I had left over from something.  I am also using some mini cards and envelopes.

To begin, I had gotten this sweet not from a friends little one and I was so touched and impressed by the thoughtfulness of the note.

There is no way they could have known my slight obsession with Mr. ROY G BIV, so that made this thank you note even more special.

It occurred to me that this sweet little one must do this often, sending notes or appreciation etc, and I thought I could make her a little card kit of her own.

Hence, today’s project!

To start I needed to make a SAMPLE for her to follow so I used some of the ELEPHANT GARDEN STAMPS and created a random background on my card front.

Since I am making a rainbow themed card kit, I will make each card with the colors of the rainbow, you’ll understand in a few more pictures.

Here is the completed sample card.

Inside each card I have placed this lined paper so she can write a little note.

Here are all the cards for her to make with the pieces she will need.

I tried to keep it all real simple and everything already has the adhesive attached.

I added a little place for her to sign the backs of her cards too.

Each card has an envelope, they are all done in black so she does not need to fuss about matching those up with the right card.

Now for the tin, I am using some chipboard and this wonderful paper ribbon.  The ribbon is from PAPER JACKS and you can find them here.

I stamped the background and painted and inked the chipboard pieces.

Then I took the paper ribbon and the chipboard letter and embossed them with black images.

Here is the completed tin, now to get everything stuffed in the tin.

Here is what it looks like when opened.

Here is the tin is all complete, all cards and sample are tucked safely inside.

The tin was a little too fat to stay closed, so I just added the ribbon but as the cards are used and given away, the tin will be able to stay closed on its own.

One last look, what do you think…will she like it??

Well, that is it for me today!  Again…head on over to Gel a Tins and that is where you can purchase this set for yourself.

Be sure to head on over to Gel A Tins Blog and see what other things our Design Team ladies have made with all the fun Gel A Tins stamps.

 Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello??  Is there anyone out there?  I hope so, because…I stayed up late creating a mini masterpiece to show you all today.
I am using one of the new release stamps by {ippity} called:
Sucks to Get Old
I wanted to show you that these duos are so wonderful, and you don’t have to get hung up on the phrase that your image comes with.  #1, the phrase and image are 2 different stamps and #2, because they are 2 different stamps you can mix an match and the possibilities are endless.
For this project, I only used the Image, the lollipop.
I paper pieced it using my brand new, super dee duper, Momenta Cardstock Paper.
For the phrase, I used some letter stickers from my Momenta Super Paper Pad.
I took the time to make sure that the candy jar still looked cute even after the tag was removed.
Sometimes it’s the little touches that make a projects really stand out.
I also wanted to show you I fixed my annoying error from my project last week.
I put a lot of time and effort into this card and took the pictures and while editing the pictures it hit me that I should have made the card front so it opens while holding it as a rainbow shape.
So, I took it apart and fixed my error and I am so much happier with this card now.
I had a giveaway for this and my wonderful friend, Donna, is the lucky recipient of this colorful card.
This card was made with the stamp set called:
Friendship Rainbow
I hope you have liked my projects today!  Check out my blog post today…I am giving away the TAG from the Candy Jar project…so you know the drill:

Wednesday Wowzer, with my good friend Roy G. Biv

23 Nov

There are a couple of things in this world that never cease to make me smile.  I am grateful it is a big list.

Aside from the usual things like my hubby and children etc., they are a give for smiles, near the top of my list are:

Polka Dots – ALWAYS & FOREVER (I have no idea why)

Roy G. Biv – (love this guy)

Flowers – (all sorts)

Here is a card based on some of the things that make me smile.

I used the following sets for today’s card:

Time for Friends

Straight from the Heart

I made each one of those flowers from coffee filters.

I don’t drink coffee, but I do buy coffee filters!  Aren’t these flowers great?

I wanted to keep the background simple so the flowers could really stand out.

I used the heart from the Straight to the Heart set and colored it to match the card.

That’s my wow for you today!

Please head on over to I Heart {ippity} and see what the other ladies have made to WOW you.

We have such an INCREDIBLE team.  They are all so talented, go check for yourself.
