Special Friends

Good morning! Along with the warmer weather we are having we are getting lots of rain. So what better way to spend a rainy day than playing in my craftroom with new goodies! 

I wanted to share my card I made for the design team over at Firefly Crafts.  This month I got to play with a set from Penny Black.  Here is what I created today


I just adore this set Mimi’s Love!! 

I started with a SU Lucky Limeade card base and then added a layer of burlap. For the next layer I took a piece of Basic Black and heat embossed the sentiment (from the Mimi’s Love) in white on the upper right and attached this piece to the burlap layer.  Next I created three layers of landscape, using the Poppystamps stitched landscape dies, and inked sponged them with SU Lucky Limeade and Old Olive inks, layered them together and added to the bottom of the black layer cardstock. Now I stamped the Tree Ring (Concord and 9th) onto watercolor paper with StaZon black ink and colored in with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  Once that dried I fussy cut it and added it to my card front. For the tree I die cut that using the Cottage Cutz Tall Tree die on white cardstock and colored with copic markers and then assembled the tree and added it on top the tree ring on the left side. Now is when I get to play with Mimi’s Love!! I stamped the scene with the deer using Momento black ink onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with copic markers and then fussy cut the scene and added this piece on top of the tree and tree ring.  For the final touch I stamped several more of the mushrooms from the scene and colored them in and fussy cut and added to my card across the Landscape hills. 

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my creation.

Quilted Hello

Hello! I am here today to share with you my design team card for Firefly Crafts.  On this cold and rainy day we are having all I wanted to do was crawl back into bed and curl up with my quilt. So I was inspired to use my Gina Marie quilt die for my card. 

Here is what I created 


How aweosme is that die!! I used SU Whisper White for my card base and then added a layer of SU Cheerful Treat DSP using the solid purple side.  Next I die cut the quilt with a piece of Whisper White and removed all the inside pieces and glued down the outline piece on top of the purple layer. Now I die cut the quilt using a piece of the DSP and used the inside pieces to fill in the outline piece on my card.  This is such a fabulous die to use up all that hoarded DSP ! For the sentiment I die cut the Hello from the SU Hello Thinlets using the same dsp three times and glued them together for added dimension and adhered it to my card. Now I used glossy accents and covered the inside purple pieces and the sentiment. After that dried I added a white flower to the center. 

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my creation.

Perfect Moment

Good morning! After a much needed break I am back today with some exciting news! I have joined the Design Team over at Firefly Crafts and I’m here today to share my first project. 


This is the card I created for my project. I started with an A2 sized card base in SU Old Olive. My next layer is SU Chocolate Chip that I distressed the edges with my scissors.  The next layer is SU Mint Macaroon that I die cut using the Pierced Chain rectangle dies from Gina Marie. After attaching that layer to my card I stamped the feather (Unity Stamp Co) on vellum with StaZon black ink and then embossed with clear EP and then fussy cut and added it on top of the Mint Macaroon layer on the left side. For the main layer I stamped the owls image (Unity Stamp Co) onto Copic X-Press It paper and colored with my copics markers and then die cut it using the Pierced Chain rectangle dies. I added some twine to the left of the image and then attached this layer to my card.  To finish I stamped the sentiment (Unity Stamp Co) onto white cardstock and then layered it onto SU Chocolate Chip and added it to the main layer on the lower right side. 

I had so much fun creating this card and I hope you have enjoyed it too!
