Who doesn’t love a word search?! I had so much fun making this card! The white paper is dull glossy and all the images are colored with alcohol ink markers. Front swatch is 1.5×5.5″, center swatch is 2.75×5.25″ and swatch on right is 4×5.25″. Scrap pieces were used for the flags and word key box. Links are below!
Good Evening. We have some fun NEW downloadable images! I have been working on some cute valentines. These cards are 2.75” x 4.25”. Cute for packages and for fun. It also gives me an excuse to use my envelope punch and make my own envelope!
After punching this blue circle out of a piece of paper I realized it already had words stamped on it so I used it on the next card because I needed to send a get well card
So how downloaded images work…You purchase online and then from home print on your own paper and make into cards. They are so much fun and so much cheaper to produce and purchase! Any questions let me know!!??
Love simple cards! This fern was cut out and used on a different card and so using the empty cut to show the brown card through. I used Fallen Leaves Versafine Clair ink. It is one of my absolute favorite ink!! It can be purchased from Amazon.
I needed to make a bunch of sympathy cards and I wanted something simple and so just used a fern die cut. This is an old one from a company that I could not remember the name of but it was a popular one so I thought I could Google it. No such luck. So many companies that I have never even heard of! craziness!
You may have noticed that this is the same word stamp that was used on yesterday’s card. I love bees and be cards but don’t want to specific of a stamp and I love being able to change the words to fit my card.
Hard to believe it is the month of December. Time just passes so quickly! Hope you had a good Monday
Good Evening! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had an awesome few days with family and friends. Didn’t get much work done but many memories were made.
My sister made place cards for all of us!
We continue to have really warm weather. I think it was between 40 degree and 50 degree weather which is t-shirt and shorts weather here in Wisconsin- although you southerners might think that was winter coat weather!
I got a couple of new Cutting Dies on the Michael’s website during the Black Friday week that I had to try out.
Do you ever have one of those days where you have a long list of things to accomplish and you get none of it done??! That was my day today! Grrrr…I did, however, have fun with this card….
This card is so cheerful! I was working on another card at the same time when a red heart fell unto this card by accident and I thought it added so much to the card! Love when that happens. Made my frustrated day a little better. Ahhh it’s the little things in life.
Our forecast is for snow today! We saw a few flakes the other day but nothing that stuck. Today we are expecting a few inches. I love snowman cards so I got right to work on some.
Some of my most useful stamps are the small Dual dots- both the open and closed. These stamps only come in wood mount because they would be impossible to keep track of in Cling mount. I have trouble keeping track of them in wood mount! They are always some where on my desk. I need to get better at putting them away when I am done with them.
Wisconsin is expecting a 72 degree day today. That is warmer than Arizona! It looks like the weather will be back to cold tomorrow so we’ll just enjoy today. I think this is the last of my fall cards. Enjoy Today!
I love all the new colors of pumpkins! There is blue, yellow, multi colored ones and of course orange. In the world of electronics it is so fun to get a handmade card. It’s so relaxing to make cards and fun to send. I hope we can all think of someone to send a card to this week!
Good Evening! Looking forward to the weekend! Wanted to share this fall card. I think I was made for fall. One of my favorite times of the year ! I love the colors of fall. The trees are so beautiful in Wisconsin. I hope you are all blooming where you have been planted!
We’ve been pretty quiet on the blog lately. Just a lot going on. I was diagnosed with a nerve sheath tumor on my wrist which are really rare and we’ve been gardening! I did have the tumor removed and it was benign which we knew going in to surgery but was glad to get it confirmed. I have two numb fingers as a result of surgery but I’m hopeful that the feeling will come back. It doesn’t stop the stamping! I love fall colors. I hope this finds you all healthy and happy!
I’ve been busy getting orders out today but needed to send a friend a thank you card. She sent us some really good banana bread! It needed to be quick and easy. And it needed to be flat so I could mail without issues.
I have had this cuddlebug folder forever and have never really been happy with how I made a card with it. But really love it in this layout!
So I’ve been a little silent on the blog! We’ve been very busy catching up on some yard work. Kevin has a new job and he’s not working as many hours (the reason for the change was too many hours!) so we have been doing things around the property that we’ve been wanting to do. Our first project was a raspberry garden…
This was the start. At some point I will show you the finished! My sister called and asked me to make her some graduation cards and I went right to work 😉
I do find gatefold cards a challenge some times but this was left over from some make n take and it was the right color for the graduate school so I decided to work with it!
Good Day! I started working on this card a long time ago and it’s been sitting on my desk with parts and pieces being put on it and being taken away. I started to do a graduation card with the Celebrate and then I stuck it on this card and really liked it! I think it might be much cuter in real life than in pictures!
I love these happy day stamps. A great card to send just to cheer someone up. Used my four square cutting die again. I noticed while digging today that I have a tiny 4 square one too! Will have to get it out and make some cards too.
Summer has arrived here in WI! In the form of hot and muggy but I’m not complaining. However, I did turn on the air conditioner! Lovely sweet card today using my four square Cutting Die!
I made this sweet card yesterday for a friend of mine and even already mailed it. One of the best things about being off the road…is all the cards I make actually go to people to enjoy instead of winding up in the booth!
Good Day! I found this four square cutting die buried deep in my stash and thought it looked fun so I made a few cards with it. There is always a need for Birthday cards so that’s always a safe card to make.
Hello! I’m working on my sympathy card stash. I had a little delay because my cutting mats were all warped and I needed to flatten them. It’s a easy process but took a little time this morning but I’m good to go now and cutting has resumed! I do like simple cards and todays card is really simple
I had need of another Sympathy card for an older lady at church. The colors actually match better in person than on the card. I really need to make some more sympathy cards for my stash as they seem to get used up.
A friend of ours became grandparents on April Fool’s day! And so I needed another baby card for the baby’s parents. We know the new little baby was a boy so I was able to use blue. I also did a pink and gray one for my stash!
Hello! A baby shower! I’m headed to a baby shower tomorrow and I could not tell when the last time I went to one was. Of course I had no cards in my stash so I had to make one. I did have to add more hearts because of the smudge of ink 😬🙄
Good Evening! A quick card tonight using some of the pieces of paper on my desk. Sometimes you ended up with all these pieces while you are creating. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with this yellow paper but thought the card was fun.
