Speedy Recovery

I have a quick post for this morning. I picked up this pretty paper a couple of months ago and thought it would perfectly for this card.

I used a simple two layers background and did the same with the sentiment adding some foam tape to pop it up. I finished with some dots.

Be Brave

I used a nice bold pattern for this simple card. This is a smaller sized note card about 3.5" by 4.5, I have a pack of smaller envelopes in my stash that I had not used yet so I made some cards to match :).

I added a layer of deep blue cardstock behind the designer paper, I stamped the sentiment and then popped it up with foam tape. I finished with some shimmery sequins.

Supplies: White and blue card stock, Designer Paper - Echo Park, Simon Says - Uplifting Thoughts, sequins.

Have a fabulous day,

More than Coffee

Good Morning, a quick post this morning. I made this card a couple of months ago but did not realize I have not posted it.

I stamped the script on a piece of kraft card stock, then die cut the coffee pot and cup. I added the same script to the bottom of the card base. I then added a the DP with the brown borders before adding the sentiment.

I used my brown and black ink pads to get the variance in colour. I die cut the coffee pot and mug and popped them up with foam tape.


Supplies: Kraft and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Canvas Corp, Altenew-Coffee Love, Penny Black - Script.

Pumpkin Spice

I had the most amazing week with my sister visiting, we did not do a lot of crafting but we sure did do a lot of out of doors things. The weather was stunning, my sister headed back home early this morning and she took the sun with her. I can here the pitter patter of the rain outside.

The rain is predicted to hang around for tomorrow as well, which is perfect so that I can make a card for World Card Making day.

I made this card slightly smaller than a normal A2, I popped up the plaid panel and added a strip of dark brown and orange before the fall pattern. I used the cute Pumpkin Spice stamp and die set for my all the other element all which are popped up with foam tape.

Supplies: White and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Carta Bella, Lawn Fawn - Pumpkin Spice, pearls.

It is another stunning fall day out my windows this morning, my sister is visiting and we have a fabulous hike planned today. We had planned to do more crafting but with the weather is so sunny and warm it has been hard not spend time lots of time outdoors.

I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches today.


I used stitched circles and added a layer of foam tape under the top circle. I heat embossed the sentiment and then popped it up with foam tape as well. I finished with some dew drops.

Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #259

Welcome to another challenge for Merry Monday, this week Deanne is our hostess and her challenge is to Add a Christmas tree to your card.

I love pattern papers, surprise surprise ( I actually don't think I am alone ;)). So when I have chance I will make the paper do all the work and I love this fun paper by My Mind's Eye. When I pulled this sheet of 6x6 out, there were a number of trees on it, enough to catch my eye.

Then I started creating my card, working on the design but the trees faded into the background for a few moments. When it came time to start putting it together I though to myself, where have all the trees gone... I have only one left that was visible. HA.

So I have one teeny tiny tree right in the middle.


Simple layers with a easy design. I added green matting to all the layers and popped the sentiment up.

Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #258

Good Morning, we have a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. Colleen is our hostess this week and her challenge is to Add a penguin to your Christmas card.

I created a smaller card for this challenge 3" by 4", I has this adorable little panel of critters but the larger card size made them look to small.

I was working with scraps again, I guess I should clean up my desk a bit ;). I lined of the designer paper right to the edge of the card base, I layered the center panel and popped it up with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment and finished with a blend of sequins and gems.


Supplies: White card stock, Designer Paper - Doodlebug, Lawn Fawn - Frosties, sequins, gems.
