Wednesday Wednesday

Good Morning! Wanted to share some new (to me) stamps and dies I just received. The 'Praise' and 'Grace' dies and the words to match are from Paper Trey Ink.  Love the simplicity and versatility of the cards made with them.
The wreath in both cards is a Spellbinder die. The flowers on the pink card are 'Posies' from MFT.  The flowers on the purple card are called 'mini modern blooms also from MFT.



This card is stamped with a Christine Adolph design by Spellbinders. Pretty!

Just another variation. I used the Spellbinders Graceful Doily die.
 
That is it for today! Thanks for looking!

Saturday June 16th

Good morning everyone! Have some cards to show you with the 'spotlight feature', featuring  different dies and stamps. Hope you enjoy! The first card was made using the Avery Elle Petals and stems clear stamp set. I thought I would remember which dies I used for the frames, nope, no such luck. I do know that the Spellbinder matting basics A was used.
 

The stamp set used on the Raspberry colored card above is the Altenew Peony set, & the multi- flower set below is Garden Treasures from Altenew. The last card features the Peony set also. There is a real narrow frame on the last card. Just wanted something different. I used fun foam on the back for added interest.

Pretty Morning!

Pretty morning here, historical morning for the United States. Something seems to be working. Maybe the power of prayer?

For this morning I have more YOU cards. You are amazing, You are funny etc; I need more of the are whatever.. Oh, maybe that is the next stamp.

 


Yes, there is a YOU on the purple care. The 'You are Brave' is a stamp set from The Ton. The die is from wish. 



The 'script' you is from Avery Elle, along with the text. The bolder You is a die set from Cutter Bee

June 8th!

It is the end of the week again! I just have a couple cards to show today. Both were made with designer paper. One is a shaker card! Imagine that, I made another 'shaker' card. Ha. One is just the polka dotted frame that I love! The dots are designer paper too. I think I might have 20 sheets! Good thing I like it! The only stamp used on the framed card is Altenew's Garden Treasure. Lovely set of flower stamps.



Thanks for looking!

Wednesday June 6!

This is my first post in June. I'm patting myself, as it is before the middle of the month! The 'kitty' and balloon word stamps are both Mama Elephant stamps. I have had fun playing with all the critters lately.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next 'critter' or Parrotise stamp is from Avery Elle! To cute birds!

 
Thanks for looking!

Tuesday May 29th

Hello friends! Have some wonderful little booklets to share today. I used Becca Feeken's Grand Cabinet card die. Love this intricate die in a card or the book! So lets get started! I have a mint green & black combination first.

The 'pocket' on the front is a Heartfelt creations die. Actually I am using it upside down!



I like how the pages are opened  up. I do need more embellishment on this book.

                                  
 



I like how this shows the die . This is the last two pages. As I said I need to finish.


Love the pink and black combo! I used the same pocket on the front. I just decided on flowers rather than bows!




Used another "arch die" from the Chantilly lace collection.  This one is the one I used for my Easter cards!


I this this is out of order, but  it does show the colors nicely!
 
Thanks for looking!

Anolther busy Saturday!

Today busy means grocery shopping , bank. box stores, post office. Whew! Glad that is done for the week. I have a few more 'turnabout' cards to share. One or two more dahlias. Did I say I was obsessed? Oops, one more monochromatic 'dotty' card! There is a tutorial with this one, and she uses the Sizzix dotted rectangles, square or circles. I used the hemstitch from Spellbinders for my circles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixZkMilocNg&feature=share

I didn't try the link so hope it works for you!



This is the 'half ' dahlia. Like the color and the placement!


Another dahlia in green, but this one features the next turnabout called Sunshine.I just used it for the background on this one.




 
Thanks for looking today!
