Happy Anniversary

For the past couple years, I have designed and made anniversary cards for the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (aka the IHM's).  Every year they celebrate milestone anniversaries.   As soon as I saw the Delightful Daisy designer series paper I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I cut the flowers out and popped them up. 

Supplies: Peekaboo Peach, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White Cardstock; Peekaboo Peach, and Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink; Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper; Garden Trelllis Embossing Folder; Milestone Moments stamp set.

Great Friend

I think I have mentioned a time to two (wink, smile) that I love stacked collage cards!   I used the Embossing paste to add some really fun texture.  If you haven't tried it yet come on over and I would be happy to show you how to to use it. There are so many fun things to do with it add some ink refill and have any color you need; use with or without stencils; add glitter.  There are so many possibilities!

Good Friends
One of my very dearest friends, Nancy Brown, lives across the state from me.  We've known each other a long time and have been through a lot together.  We don't get to see each other very often but when we do, it's like we haven't been apart.  Nancy also happens to be on my team.  She sent me this card a week or so ago.  I feel very blessed that she is in my life!  She is very talented and I always love it when she gives or sends me a card.  We will be spending next weekend together at a stamping retreat.  I can't wait!


Supplies:  Crushed Curry & Whisper White card stock; Basic Black ink; Crushed Curry, Berry Burst and Wild Wasabi Markers; Stitched Circle Framelits; Color Theory designer series paper stack; Lovely Friends stamp set

Happy Birthday Thomas

Our September birthdays continue.  Our grandson,Thomas, turns 14 today - I just don't know where the time has gone.  He is, of course, taller than me now.  I thought I would keep his card pretty simple and stick with circles. It is really hard for me to NOT put ribbons and bling on a card.  I embossed different Happy Birthdays on the circles.  It's hard to see it on the Daffodil Delight circle but it's there!
  

Supplies: Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twist, and Daffodil Delight Card Stock; Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper; Versamark Ink; Clear Embossing Powder; 1 1/2" Circle Punch.

Christmas Gift Box

I use a lot of gift boxes and gift card holders at Christmas time.  When I saw these cute little Pizza Boxes I felt as if I discovered gold!  They are perfect for baked items or 3-d items.  The ribbons and accessories in the holiday catalog are great for putting the finishing touches on your gifts. These little boxes, along with all of the designer series papers and embellishments make it so easy to create a beautiful gift.
