Thinking of You....

Good morning everyone!  I'm here to share another card with you this morning.  I've been playing with vellum flowers.    I used Oakberry Lane Collection flowers and I just love the way they turned out.  I did a soft coloring on the back of the petals and love the look!  I am always looking for a card to send to someone just to say I'm thinking of them and this one will go into my stash for just such an occasion.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.  It has become one of my favorites.


I also used the die from the Daydreams Bridge Die Set from the March Release.  I glittered it up and also glittered the tag used for the sentiment at the top of the card.  The card is 5 X 7 and will be mailed in a clear plastic envelope.

This will do it for me this morning.  I'm off to start my day.  I need to run errands but the weather is calling for rain so I'm not sure how much I'll get done before the showers begin.  Have a great day and be creative!

Happy Easter All Wrapped Up with a Gingham Bow.......

Good morning everyone and welcome back.  I'm just running through with a quick Easter card I made to enter in the Double D Challenge.  The challenge is Gingham and let me just tell you I had to do some rummaging to find some in my stash.  You would think with a couple of closets full of product that I would be able to find enough Gingham to make a small card.  I found some pink gingham ribbon and a tiny bit of paper and we are off to the races.  I let the paper do the heavy lifting on this card but I did stamp the sentiment and I tied the bow.  Quick and easy!


I'm off to link my card to the Double D Challenge site and to begin my day.  Hope you have a wonderful Thursday my friends!

Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations....

Good morning and welcome to another Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations.  This morning I'm submitting a tag for your pleasure.  You know me, I love a good tag. They can be so many things to the person receiving them.  They can stand as a gift on their own or be tucked down inside a gift bag for a bit of added pleasure.  I hope you enjoy. 

The semi-finalists for the new design team are post this morning over on the Heartfelt Creations blog!  Join me in wishing them all good luck for the next part of this journey!

For more tips on creating with the Cherry Blossom Retreat collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/OaA2da5H-E0.
Instructions: My card size is 4 x 6". Using the tag die lay it on a folded piece of cardstock with the edge hanging off. Run this through the Vagabond and cut out the card. Using the coordinating die, cut a piece of the paper collection and layer it onto the front of the card. Next, cut out the medallion and use the coordinating die to cut a piece of the paper collection. Glue it to the medallion. Use dimensional tape to adhere to card front. Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and use the Tag die to cut out. I went around the edges of the cardstock with Magenta Hue ink. Use dimensional tape to adhere to medallion. Tie a piece of the seam binding into a bow and adhere to the edge of the sentiment.
Using StazOn Olive Green ink, stamp the leaves. Using Jet black Archival Ink, stamp the birds. Using Magenta Hue ink, stamp the flower petals. Color the leaves with Bamboo Leaves Memento ink. Color the little birds with Danube Blue and Magenta Hue. Layer everything into the mold, spritz with water and run through the Vagabond 2. Lay everything out to dry. Once dry, layer the flower petals and add glitter and Prills to them and set aside to dry. Add glitter to the little bird and allow to dry. Once everything is dry, decide on placement and glue down.


WOYWW 511.....

Good morning all and Surprise!  I have been away for awhile and decided to try and become one of you again.  I totally got out of the habit of this and I have truly missed you.  Can I please come play again?  If you are wondering what is going on here with my showing a photo of my messy desk this morning, this is What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  We participants take a photo and post it then link it to our hostess' blog and then we can all have a look around.  You can head over to Julia's blog as she is the hostess for this little bit of madness and she has all the particulars listed there.


I'm beginning to think about Easter cards and so I've stamped and cut out some dogwood petals and I have the lovely doves ready to go through my die cut machine.  These will be happy sitting on the fronts of my projects.  I find it is never too early to start working on my cards because I have really slowed as the years are passing.

Well ladies that's it for me this morning.  I'm off to visit some of the other ladies and see what I have been missing.  I think I must have been gone about a year and a half maybe more.   Hopefully I can remember to get my act together each week and play along with you guys!
