Buffalo Check and Wishing You Well....

Good Morning!  Here it is FRIDAY already!  YAY!!! I'm having a wonderful time at the retreat!  It's always fun to be with friends!

The 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" card base is Crumb Cake cardstock.  The first mat is Whisper White and measures 4" X 5 1/4".  Next I used the Buffalo Check stamp to create the background using Real Red ink onto a 3 7/8" X 5 1/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The wreath is created with the Wishing You Well stamp set and is stamped in Tranquil Tide ink onto a Stitched Shapes square.  There's that awesome bow again...from the same stamp set and stamped in Real Red ink. The sentiment is from the Christmas Pines stamp set.  It is stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock then added to a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I added a True Gentleman's Button with Linen Thread tied through it to make it just a bit more country and rustic!!  SUPER CUTE CARD!

Ok! I'm heading home on Sunday!  Have a TERRIFIC weekend!  I hope you find time to create!  I'll see you Monday with a new "Make-It Monday"!  As always...THANKS A BUNCH for stopping by!

Country Lane Coffee Cup

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday! I hope this morning finds you well!!!  I'm heading to the Palomar Mountains in San Diego County for a retreat!  I'll be returning on Sunday!  I do have some projects I'll be sharing with you over the next few days so be sure to stop by!

This fun card has a 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" Whisper White card base.  The first mat is a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Country Lane designer series paper.  I embossed a 2 1/2" X 4" piece of Gray Granite cardstock using the Cable Knit embossing folder.  I used the same designer paper to cut the coffee cup using the Coffee Cups Framelits!  The band is cut from Crumb Cake cardstock.  The lid is stamped in Soft Suede ink and cut from Whisper White cardstock.  The straw is cut from Vellum.  The sentiment is stamped with Black Berry Bliss ink and punched with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.  I used 1/4" Copper Trim, 3/16" Braided Linen and Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon to finish the card....what a FUN combination of ribbons!  Now...to get it in the mail!!

Hey!  Thanks SO VERY MUCH for following my blog and stopping by each day to see my new creations!  Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!

Tuesday’s Tip - Baker’s Box Background FUN

Hello everyone!  I have a REALLY FUN Tuesday's Tip video to share with you!  Below is a sample of the box and a couple samples of other backgrounds!  I hope you'll give it a try!!!  ENJOY!!!  I FALL and CHRISTMAS boxes to share with you soon!!



This still photo shows how I decorated the box using the Sea of Texture stamp set and the Under the Sea framelits dies.  I also used the Ribbon of Courage stamp set for the sentiment and the Love What You Do stamp set for the background behind the sentiment.  

It's filled with the chocolates at the top as well as some salt water taffy, a magnet and a couple other goodies!  The tin ant the top is filled with Dead Sea Salts...for a RELAXING BATH.  I used my Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the circle then embossed it (several at a time) with the Seaside Embossing Folder! Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon is tied into a bow around the box.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Here are a couple of different backgrounds too!  I LOVE the look!


I hope you're INSPIRED to try some thing new!  THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!  Have a FANTASTIC day!!

First Frost

Hello everyone!  I'm heading to Ferndale for a church retreat this morning!  I LOVE Ferndale...it's such a cute town with fun stores and restaurants! It also has a really pretty beach and our theme is Seaside Escapes...Psalm 46:10 - Be still and know that I am God.  Should be relaxing and revitalizing!!

I have one more card from my September classes to share with you!

I absolutely LOVE the stamp set I used on this card!  I looks like two step stamping, but it isn't...it's just one stamp!  I used the First Frost stamp set.  The flowers are stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink and the stems are stamped in Mint Macaron ink.  The base of the card is a 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" piece of Basic Gray cardstock.  My first mat is 4" X 5 1/4" Whisper White cardstock.  I used the NEW Galvanized Metallic Paper and embossed it with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I attached a Pearlized Doily with dimensionals to the galvanized paper and used my 2" punch to add a piece of Frosted Foil DSP to its center.  The flowers are stamped onto a Stitched Circle that I cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I didn't add a sentiment because I wanted my class to decide how they wanted to use it!  Isn't it beautiful?!

Ok...I'm gonna hit the road!  I'll be back on Monday with a new "Make-It Monday"!  Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by!  Have a FANTASTIC weekend! I hope you find just a moment to create!

Wishing You Well

Hey there paper crafting friends!  How's your day coming along?  I'm sitting here typing my blog, listening to Ed Sheeran and eating a Costco poppy seed muffin!  Life is good!  

Today I want to share a card we made in my class yesterday!  I think it was the FAVORITE card!  EVERYONE LOVES THE BOW!!!

I had some requests for sympathy cards so I created this simple but so pretty card!  Most colors would be beautiful, but I used Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Tranquil Tide. I used a 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" Whisper White cardbase.  The 4" X 5 1/4" Crumb Cake mat is embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  My stamped image is a 2 3/4" X 4" piece of Whisper White cardstock and is stamped with the Wishing You Well stamp set.  I used Crumb Cake ink to stamp the wheat and sentiment and Tranquil Tide to stamp that bow! The stamped image is attached to a 2 7/8" X 4 1/8" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock then to a 3" X 4 1/4" piece of Early Espresso cardstock.  It is attached to the card base with dimensionals!  Totally SIMPLE card and so pretty!  This stamp set it definitely a keeper!

Here's what I used!


Subtle Embossing Folder #143706  $10.00
Wishing You Well Clear Mount Stamp Set  #147864  $19.00

Well..that's it!  I have a retreat this weekend with my church and I have some seaside treat boxes to finish up so I'm gonna head out to my shop!  THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!  Have a FANTASTIC day!!

Celebrate You...

Good Morning everyone!  I have a class today, in Redding, but I want to share a card I created with one of the backgrounds I demonstrated on my Tuesday's Tip Video yesterday!  You may not have seen it yet as I was pretty late posting it...another crazy day at my place!  I'm a toilet and vanity away from having a bathroom for my shop!!!

This card is created with the Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green background I created on Watercolor paper on  yesterday's video!  I hope you'll check it out!  The card base is Soft Suede with a Whisper White mat.  I used the Corrugated Embossing Folder to add texture to a 3 3/4" X 5" piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock.  The sentiment, from the Beautiful You stamp set, is stamped in Memento Black ink on to a stitched circle, from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The flower and the YOU are cut from the watercolor background with the Celebrate You thinlits dies.  I added three Clear Epoxy Droplets for a bit of bling!

Here's a close up so you can see the detail of the watercolor background and one of the Clear Epoxy Droplets! They're really fun!


That's it for today!  Taking kids to school and off to my class!  Have a FABULOUS day and THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!
