Thanks For Loving Me Flowers

I wanted to make a Spring card with soft details and with a love theme.  It was designed around the dainty dogwood flowers.  This one is going to be for my Mom.


Front Sentiment:  You have made a difference.


Inside Sentiment:  Thanks for loving me.

The flowers were heat embossed in white on white.  I watercolored with distress markers and paper pieced the petals onto the stems.  The wood grain and flower with stems were stamped in the background.  I added a little heart mailbox, crinkle ribbon, doily lace trim and turquoise garden papers.

Birthday Wishes Globe

This is a colorful birthday design, which turned out to look a little like a globe once it was finished.


Front sentiment:  May all your birthday wishes come true.

Inside sentiment:  Happy Birthday.

This one has all of the colors for the Unity Stamp Co {be inspired} Bunches of Love color challenge 12.  I added stars, a flag of stars, grid paper and trimming.  I love the chalkboard style of the big sentiment.  I think this design is masculine enough for the guys.  I resisted the urge to add a bow or girly detail, lol.

Tools used include:
Unity Stamp Co - Birthday Jubilee and Party All Day stamps, My Creative time dies.

Have a fabulous day and stay warm.

Anniversary String of Hearts

Hearts and love go together.  I couldn't resist this string of hearts for an anniversary card, symbolizing the ever changing years in marriage.  I made an inside liner with a fitting sentiment for these sweet hearts.


Front sentiment:  Happy Anniversary.

Inside sentiment:  Every year is sweeter than the last.

I used the colors of turquoise, pink and black.  This is included with Unity's FWF projects.

Tools used include:
Unity Stamp Co stamps - All Hearts & Love January 2013 KOTM, Everything Love and Heartfelt Sentiments.

Hope you're staying warm.  Have a great day.

Love & Magic

Here is a love themed card with the most beautiful love print collage image from the Handmade Valentines kit by Unity.


Front sentiment:  Love

Inside sentiment:  Love is the closest thing we have to magic.

I felt that this love print was enough to showcase on its own with just a pretty frame and ribbon.  I chose the romantic look of fleur de lis for the trim.

This is included with the Unity Stamp Co Friday Friends With Flair projects today.

Tools used include:
From Unity Stamp Company - Handmade Valentines & You Are Simply The Best March 2013 KOTM.
Also, Spellbinders, Bazzill & Kaisercraft cardstock, Ranger archival ink in plum and ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

Baby Bingo

The one was created for my very first niece who is expecting her first child, a baby boy.


Front sentiment:  Hooray Mommy To Be.  Big hugs just for you!

Inside sentiment:  Congratulations to the perfect couple.

I chose a bingo theme to make this card fun and unique.  There are lots of details added with the bingo panel like the scalloped stroller tag, sentiment tab, footprints and heart.  I think this design would work for either a little boy or girl with the colors of turquoise, peach, yellow, gold and white.

Tools used include:
From My Creative Time - Stitched Tab Die, Scalloped & Stitched Circle Dies, Stitched Button Dies, Anyday Bingo & Crosswords, Chocolate Greetings, More Chocolate Greetings, All Around Everything, All Around Accessories and Many Greetings.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day and a happy new year.

LOVE & Happiness

This is a design fitting for a guy or girl, don't you think?  I love the rustic look of this stamp in brown.   I couldn't resist adding ribbon and setting it against brown glitter with a chevron trim.


Front sentiment collage: LOVE, happiness, the enjoyment of beauty, so special, xoxo.

Inside sentiment:  Loving you is so easy.

I removed part of the stamped image so that it would work for the hubby.  The front image is from the January 2013 KOTM and it was recently made into a Unity Itty Bitty new release called So Special, XOXO.  Cool huh?

This is included with the Unity Stamp Company Friday FWF projects.

Tools used include:
From Unity Stamp Co All Hearts and Love Jan 2013 KOTM and Happy Love Day December 2013 KOTM.
Also: K and Company paper, Ranger archival and distress ink, punch, ribbon, Bazzill and Kaisercraft cardstock.

Thanks for visiting. Happy New Year!!!!
