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!

Merry Christmas

Bib Cards, Christmas Cards, Dull Glossy Paper

It’s Christmas time soon. We are making more cards kits! Card on the left is made with white paper and the card on the right is dull gloss paper.

Christmas Card Kit

Stamps Used: AA33 Mini Open Dual Dots; A240 Arrow Snowflake; C286 KB’s Merry Christmas Stacked; G341 Christmas be Deeper; H131 Car w/ Tree;

This card is so adorable in real life! The pictures don’t do it justice.

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

Dull Glossy Paper, Fall

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!

Stamps Used: GG38 Dual Cornstalks; G038L Single Left Cornstalk; BB29 Sketch Pumpkins Small; FF10 Sketch Pumpkins Lg; EE62 Fall Fun Cube;

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

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!

Stamps Used: BB29 Sketch Pumpkins Sm; LTum Trio Leaves; GG38 Cornstalks; G038L Left Cornstalk; E346 Life Plants You Bloom;

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!

Gardening Treasures!

Not the best pictures ! Not good lighting! 🤪

2021 Releases, Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Thank You Cards

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!

Card Kit #9

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!

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!

Stamp Links: CMO104 Aloe Vera Trio, CMO121 Congrats Endeavor Set, G346 Celebrate

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!

One of a kind Day

2021 Releases, alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship

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!

The flowers are an oldie but a goodie. The words are new. I have to have the outside font match the inside font – I’m weird like that. The inside card saying is a really popular one that we have had in the past and we like it so much that we wanted to update it.

Good Afternoon! Today is my “day off” from my regular job and I get to play at Endless Creations. Oh, and laundry and cleaning toilets! So not sure it’s a day off but I do enjoy stamping when I can on my day off. I’ve had this idea in my head for a few days and wanted to get it on paper. I love how it turned out. Orange and Green! My sons two favorite colors when he was a boy. Not sure what his favorite color is now that he’s all grown up. I hope you are enjoying your Wednesday.

I often cut extra paper with the cutting die and layer so I don’t have to use three d dots. They actually mail better this way too! I usually glue together so I can just slide them together.
