Water Can Downloads

2023 New Releases, Down Loadable Images, flowers, Get Well Soon, Valentine's Day

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!!??

Be Joyful

2022 New Releases, With Sympathy

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.

Stamps Used: G377 Romans 12:12; E350 Prayers & Comfort

It’s a New Year!

2021 Releases, With Sympathy

Happy New Year! The holidays are over and it’s back to work. I’ve been working on some cards- I always need sympathy cards so here is a few more…

I like this very simple fern for sympathy cards. It is an old Cutting Die from My Favorite Things.

Stamps Used: D375 With Sympathy; F232 Sending Love; D368 With Heartfelt Sympathy; G374 Loved One Special;

I hope your holidays were good. We had a fantastic vacation in Arizona and missed all the really cold weather in Wisconsin.

More Sympathy

With Sympathy

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!

Stamps Used: B145 With Sympathy ; G335 Peace & Comfort;

Notice I used the reverse of the heart after I die cut it! Hope your day is going good.

Bib Cards, Christmas Cards, Dull Glossy Paper, Holiday

I’ve moved on to holiday cards but still stuck on bib cards for my holiday cards.

I dug out some eyelets! I know why they are a thing of the past! Although I really like how they look.

I purchased this Cutting Die on the Michaels website and used it for the banner. The tag is a really old Spellbinders cutting die.

Thinking of You

2021 Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship, Thinking of You

I needed to make some thinking of you cards so I made a few in my “clean off my desk” mission.

I actually cut out three frames and glued together for some depth but still mailable! Just a simple card.

Stamps Used: A022 Thinking of You; EE85 Single Sunflower w/ Bee Lg

Purchased at Michaels 40% off!
The desk is almost completely cleaned up!

Bee Better Soon

2022 New Releases, alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Thinking of You

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

Stamps Used: CC98 Single Sunflower with Bee Sm; CMO119 Bee/Be Better Soon

Cleaning Desk

2022 New Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Get Well Soon, pattern paper

I have had a very messy desk for several weeks now and I’ve decided it needs cleaning up!

I’ve had several cards all “in the process” of being made but none of them completed. I had a couple of hours today to complete several of them. I hope to post them this week. I hope you enjoy them!

Happy After Thanksgiving !

2021 Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship, Thinking of You

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.

Loving the Fall Colors

My sister made place cards for all of us!

Before all the food and fun!

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.

I think they will be very versatile and useful!

Snowman Joy

Bib Cards, Card Kits, Dull Glossy Paper, Snowman, Winter

Working on card kits! I think Snowman cards are my favorite. This kit can be purchased as a single card kit or in a pack of five.

What a great option for people who want a handmade card to send to family and friends but not much time- this would make life much easier!

To Ribbon or not to Ribbon?!

alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, Snowman, Winter

That’s is always such a big question! Better not to ribbon if you are mailing the card… but I couldn’t decide if I should put the ribbon on or leave it off. What do you think?

I do so love ribbons!

I sure hope this winter finds me Stamping more!!

Stamps Used: F210 Fancy Rectangle; CC64 Ear Muff Snowman Mini; DD61 Snow Fun Cube; AA15 Dual Dots Mini; AA33 Open Dual Dots Mini;

Theresa suggested a black ribbon! I love it!

One of those days…

Christmas Cards, Dull Glossy Paper, Snowman, Winter

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….

The beginning!

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.

The ending!
Brings out the red in the ear muffs!

Stamps Used: F210 Fancy Rectangle; CC64 Ear Muff Snowman; DD61 Snow Fun Cube; AA33 Open Dual Dots Mini; A240 Arrow Snowflake;

YES! We did get snow!

Forecast: SNOW!

Dull Glossy Paper, Holiday, pattern paper, Snowman, Winter

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.

Yep! Snow Happens!

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.

Stamps Used: DD61 Snow Fun Cube; CC64 Ear Muff Snowmen; F210 Fancy Rectangle; AA33 Open Dual Dots Mini; AA15 Dual Dots Mini ; A240 Snowflake;

More snowman cards to come!

Last Warm Day

Colder Days

Dull Glossy Paper, Fall

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!

Stamps Used: FF10 Sketch Pumpkins Lg; LTum Trio Leaves; Fall Fun Cube;

Bloom with Grace

Dull Glossy Paper, Fall, Friendship

Perfect Random Template

Many of you know how much I love my perfectly random template. It makes everything so perfectly random! This is how I stamp randomly.

Hello!

Dull Glossy Paper, Fall, Friendship, pattern paper

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 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!

Congrats. You did it!

alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, Gatefold Cards, Graduation

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!

I hope this finds you enjoying summer!

Celebrate

2021 Releases, alcohol ink, Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, Dull Glossy Paper, Uncategorized

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 did leave the inside of the card blank which is a a little rare for me. Watch for this Celebrate stamp to continue to show up on cards!

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!
