A little message..

Good morning, a quick card for my post this morning. This is a smaller card, roughly 3 by 4 inches in size.

I layered the DP, then added a decorative stitched edge. I heat embossed the image and fussy it cut it and added the sentiment before popping it up with foam tape. I used an embossing folder to add some texture along the bottom before adding the thread.

The thread is quite pretty with its shimmer and tiny sequins. I added a Happy Birthday sentiment to the inside.

Hello Sunshine

Hello Sunshine... Lots of layers and a frame for this design, I made this card when I was visiting with my sister and I think it was for a challenge but I don't remember which one it was. That is what I get for the delays when posting :).

I used the frame left over from creating the windows and popped it up with foam tape. I added some pretty twine and finished with some glitter on the sun and some Diamond Glaze on the little cloud.

Supplies: White card stock, Designer Paper - Bo Bunny, My Favorite Things - I love you more, twine.

Love you more...

When I was visiting my sister in July we did a little craft shopping and creating. I love this bright cheery paper.

Of course I used my stitched die cut rectangles for all the layers. I stamped and popped up the sentiment before adding a little yellow and some sparkle to the peek-a-boo sun. I added some flower sequins and gems to finish.

Happy Fathers's Day

Crikey, I am so far behind with posting some of my cards. What a slacker ;). So as I play a little bit of catch up lets go way back.. at least a month and a half to Fathers Day.

I found this fabulous Canadian company that produces some wonderful scrapbook papers that are perfect for my husband and friends.

I created this quick card using simple layers that I die cut with stitched rectangles. I added a little foam tape to the heat embossed sentiment and it was done. I did not want to add too much to the card and distract from the fantastic paper designs.

Supplies: White and black card stock, Designer Paper - Wild Whisper, Avery Elle - City Celebrations.

I also found a company that can make photoboards to add some interest into the background of my card photos. So far I am quite happy :). This one is weather wood grain and the company is Posterjack.
