I like big birds and I cannot lie! LOL

Hello there!!  How are you today?  The sun is shining here and it is beautiful out!  I was finishing up my coffee this morning, pondering over my day and watching a sweet pair of brown birds flitting around playing tag.  It inspired me to pull out my Best Birds stamp set and do some playing too!  Birds are really very cool!  My favorites are the really long legged ones, but I like them all! LOL Here is the little card I made today:

My card base is Pineapple Punch.  I must admit when I first laid eyes on this paper I was not a fan, but now I have 3 packs in my shopping cart just waiting for my next order!  I loooooove it!  It is bright and happy and kind of makes me want a tall glass of lemonade!  My layers are Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  All of the stamped images are from the Best Birds set.  It is a really versatile set!

I wanted to add some subtle color, so I stamped the mesh-y looking stamp twice in Pool Party behind everything!  I colored the bird and the branch using the Blends markers and cut them out using the coordinating Thinlits set. I stamped my sentiment and added a few Silver Glimmer accent dots using a standard hole punch.

The bird and branch are resting on a strip of Pineapple Punch that I ran through the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder.  I like adding different textures to a project!  It makes for a more interesting visual experience!

Here are all of the goodies that I used to create my card today:

Hey there!  Phew! Been a busy couple of days around here! Ever feel like you are running in about 10 different directions at once?! I did manage to sit down long enough to make a card this morning and wanted to share it with you!  Take a look:

My card base is Very Vanilla and my layers are Bermuda Bay and Pineapple Punch. I used the Petal Pairs Textured Embossing folder for the Vanilla panel.  It leaves such a beautiful impression.  I stamped my sentiment from the Accented Blooms stamp set and punched it out using the Tailored Tag punch.

The beautiful butterfly is from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits set and is cut from Bermuda Bay. I added a few Silver Glimmer accent dots along the bottom edge using a standard hole punch.

Christmas card Sunday #20

Hello there!  Hope that you are having an awesome weekend! Mine has just flown by.  I cannot believe it is almost over already!  I almost let the whole day get away without posting my Christmas card!  Time is such a crazy thing sometimes.  Ok, onto that card:

My card base is Whisper White and my layers are made from the new DSP pack called Under the Mistletoe!  It just oozes holiday fun!!  I stamped my sentiment from the stamp set Christmas Pines and punched it out using a 2" Circle punch. I added a few Silver Glimmer accent dots using a standard hole punch.

I made my bow using the Envelope punch board and added one of the Tinted Faceted Buttons.  This is a super simple holiday card, but it may be one of my favorites so far!   My stack of cards is growing!!  Have you started making your cards yet?

Here is a list of the products that I used to make my card today:

I am off to get a few more things finished up before the weekends ends!  Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful day!

Hello there!  Happy Friday to you!  Got any fun weekend plans?  I kicked off the weekend this morning by settling into my stamp space and making a card!  My days are always a bit lighter and my mood happier when I start them out by working my creative muscles!  Want to see the card I made?

A sweet friend is asking for birthday cards for her Grandma and I was excited to be able to help out!  Grandma's are very special people and I find lately that I am really missing mine. 

My card base is Blushing Bride and my layers are Seafoam Green and Very Vanilla.  I ran the Vanilla piece through the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder for a soft quilted look.  

My sentiment is from the Enjoy Life stamp set and I cut it out using the Stitched Seasons Framelits set (that will be available August 1st for a limited time only!). Isn't that bow just the cutest?!  I added a circle underneath that I cut out using the Layering Circles Framelits set and added a few Silver Glimmer accent dots that I punched using a standard hole punch. 

I absolutely love this sentiment!  It is so true!  Take a minute to do something nice for someone!  It will enrich their day and yours!! 

Here is a list of the goodies that I used to make my card today:
