Valentine’s Day Card #4

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!  If you haven’t made valentines for all of your loved ones, consider this some additional inspiration……straight from my Pinterest board!  I am a super busy lady (aren’t we all) and I am constantly crafting based on what I found on Pinterest!  I seriously don’t know what I did before Pinterest!  How about you?  And the beautiful heart edge?  I can’t believe how pretty this turns out on the…

Valentine’s Day Card #3

This pretty little card was inspired by one similar on Pinterest.   I was immediately drawn to the soft pink color and feminine details.  I added an embossed border using a retired folder called HAPPY HEARTS.  Way back when these were on the clearance rack, I purchased two of them so that I could cut one of them up and use just a few rows of it.  I also have a polka dotted one and I…

Valentine’s Day Card #2

How about a little love from our hedgehogs?  I love these little guys!  I have greatly enjoyed the Stitched Shapes Framelits that Stampin’ Up! introduced recently.  They have been out of stock, but they are now available once again.  The set includes circles, shapes, and squares!  I love the look of stitching around the edges — but then again, that won’t surprise any of you that know me well!  This card also uses Whisper White…

Valentine’s Day Card #1

This is a simple little card, with alot of punch!  (pun intended!)  The only little problem with this card is that I used a couple of Retired Items……oops!  The Hexagon Embossing Folder shown here has been “replaced” with an all new and improved folder that is in the new Occasions Catalog.  I just haven’t purchased it yet, and I wanted to make this card that I found on Pinterest.  The tiny heart punch is one…

Watercoloring with Bella & Friends

Today I want to share some of the most precious cards I have ever seen.  I’m in love with this puppy (and truthfully I’m not really a “dog” person by nature) thanks to these cards made by my assistant Sara.  I’m so glad that I can show you some samples using stamps that I don’t own to add a little variety here and there.  Sara is new to my area, and I’m enjoying getting to…

Sale-A-Bration Card #1 {Avant Garden}

Today’s card will be the first of many samples these next few months using the new Sale-A-Bration sets.   This is one of the sets that you can earn for FREE if you purchase $50 in Stampin’ Up! products.  I love this color combination mixing the deep Rich Razzleberry color with the subtle Soft Sky color.  I found the layout design from Pinterest, but decided to give it some fresh colors.  One of my favorite…

Little Cuties Puppy Card

I love making “special order” cards for my family and friends.  One of my coworkers asked me to make a card for her niece that just got a new puppy.  I was SO excited to have a reason to ink up this new image from the “Occasions” catalog.  Isn’t this adorable!  I can see so much potential with the animals in this set — despite the fact that it appears to be “baby themed” at…

One Layer Sale-A-Bration Card

I did it!  I posted two days in a row……..I’m trying to get back in the swing of things.  This is the card I made while I had my “So Very Much” stamps inked up.  I had a plain white card base on my desk, so I just decided to see how I could spruce it up.  I used the new Real Red narrow grosgrain ribbon and secured it by punching 1/2 of a circle…
