Momma’s Sweater Card


First I gathered my supplies together.

IMG_1534Centered the Blush cardstock in the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder


Punched strip for the lace and centered it over the Quatrefoil.

Cut a 2 inch slice down from the top.

Folded the collar down 1/2 inch from the sides to the end of the slice.


Trimmed the lace to fit on the collar.


Time to add the brads!!


Corner-rounded the collar then tacked it down with glue dots.

Added a “hanky”


I didn’t have pink beads, so I used an alcohol marker to tint them.


Drew a circle as a guide for the beads


Used the circle edge to align the beads.

And, Voila!! we’re done!


Angel’s Inspiration with Sonoma Paper

I was bloghopping the other day and came upon a wonderful project by a fellow Close To My Heart consultant named Angel.  I decided to give it a whirl!

We have this wonderful Cricut cartridge called Art Philosophy that cuts 700 images.  When you buy the collection you get 3 sets of stamps and 3 sheets of Dimensional Elements.

The card holder is the french fry box image.  I used the “fit to page” setting and it holds the six cards and envelopes perfectly.  The paper is from the Sonoma collection; so perfectly victorian!!! and it’s decorated with Art Philosophy flowers and stems.  The lace and ribbon are from my stash.

The cards and envelopes are from the Colonial White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack.  A package of 50 cards and 50 envelopes is only $14.95!!!!

Fashionista Meets Roxie

Well, hockey is on so I snuck down to my craft room.  I don’t think my husband noticed yet!!!

I ordered the Fashionista stamp and couldn’t wait to try it.  And Mojo Monday was yesterday…. gotta keep up.  So, I put the two together.  And, just like peanut butter and chocolate, I came up with a sweet card.

The Fashionista stamp is so sophisticated!

Under The Sea Card Box

I fell in love with the Footloose paper as soon as I saw it!!!  I lived on the coast of the Pacific Ocean for over 25 years, been away for 15 years, and I really miss the ocean so much.  I feel an affinity with the creatures of the sea, the beach, the wind and the extreme vastness of a neverending horizon.

So, when I saw the cute little sea creatures of the Under The Sea stamp set, I had to have it!!  And, there’s no better canvas than the Footloose paper packet.

First, I started with the My Creations Card Box.  I inked the edges with Creme Brulee Ink before adhering the decorative B & T Footloose cardstock.

I then decorated the lid with items from Seaside Wooden Shapes, Durables Studs and Natural Hemp.

The cards were so fun to create and decorate.  I used all of the above items and Paradise Paper Flowers, Lagoon Mini Medley, Sparkles and  White Ribbon.  Inks used were Olive, Lagoon, and Creme Brulee.

Card Word Puzzle Meets Pemberley

I absolutely love the Pemberley paper pack!!!  It’s going to be around for about a year, but I’m already anxious about the inevitable retirement of this beautiful paper.  What to do?…..  Make my own!!!!

I experimented all afternoon and finally came up with something I was happy with.  To be honest, I’m not the best stamp colour-inner.  I have no copics 😦  nor do I really understand the concept of light and shading in stuff.  Geez, what is a girl to do?  After many attempts and a little frustration…. I just wiped my sponge dauber inked with Indian Corn Blue across the stamped image (Outdoor Denim ink) and VOILA it didn’t look half bad.  Sooooooooo, I went with that.  And, here’s the result…. Ta Da…..

This is a 12 x 12 piece of Bamboo paper that I stamped with some of the stamps from the Card Word Puzzle stamp set.  The flowers from collection are the same design as the flowers from the Pemberley paper collection.   It’s pretty good despite the fact that it is a prototype.  I hope this inspires you to be your own designer as well!!

This is the card I made for yesterday’s Mojo Monday sketch.
Are you ready for the video? I really had no idea how it was going to end up and it might be a little scary watching my thought process in action. Thank goodness for editing!
