Thanks

Happy Friday, I love that the weekend is just around the corner. Do you have some crafty time planned?

I find it is hard to get into my craft room mid summer, all that sun shine outside just calls to me but I have a sun shiny card to share this morning.


I used my stitched die cuts to get a panel from each side of this pretty paper. I die cut the flowers and separated them with foam tape. The sentiments are popped up with foam tape and I finished with some gems.

Supplies: White card stock, Designer Paper - Photoplay, Simon Says Stamps - Stamps and Die cuts, gems.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Llama Tell you...

I think this stamps set so cute, this card is for a niece who recently moved to my little neck of the woods. She is an avid knitter, so Llama tell you.. Ha, Love it!


I stamped and fussy cut the llama and added just a wee bit of colour. I added some glossy accents to the little tuff of wool on the head then popped him up with some foam tape.

The sentiments are also popped up with foam tape. I finished with some sequins.

Supplies: White, brown and yellow card stock, Designer Paper - Unknown, Gerda Steiner Designs-Llama Tell You, sequins.

Freshly Made Sketches #294

I had a little time in the craft room last night, I played along with Freshly Made Sketches. My husband and I have an anniversary coming up and this sketch worked wonderfully for a masculine anniversary card
I used stitched rectangles for the panels then added a thin layer of cardstock to each as the papers were of similar colours. I added a little texture to the brown hidden center panel with an embossing folder and popped it up with foam tape.

I used a die cut for the sentiment and fit all the pieces back into the top panel. I die cut the heart from a woodgrain pattern and offset it so that it would fit. I finished with some brown dots.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Papercraft House, Simon says die cuts, dots.

For Dad

Good Evening, as Father's Day rolls to a close I realized that I had not posted this card that was made for my Father in Law.

A CAS card with quick layers, I am down to the scraps with this designer paper and it has served me well over the last couple of years. I added a layer of DP then embossed a panel of brown card stock with a weave embossing folder. I stamped Dad right on the background then added the fishing hat which is fussy cut and popped up with foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment which is also popped up with foam tape. I added a couple of sequins to finish.

Supplies: White, kraft and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Karen Foster Designer, Lawn Fawn-Dad + Me, sequins.
