Sept 1, 2021- Life Plants

Friendship, Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, flowers, Dull Glossy Paper

September is here! Amazing. The months and years seem to fly by. September brings knee replacement surgery to me. Little nervous but my knees were what took us off the road but of course then along came covid and changed everybody’s world.

Today’s card was made for a young friend who is moving to Michigan that I am going to miss! You might notice that I cut the flower out several times and stacked them instead of using 3-D-Dots. Love that trick.

Enjoy your first day of September! Fall is coming.

Dull Glossy Paper, Thinking of You

Thinking of You

Happy Wednesday! Aren’t these polka dots fun?! I’m loving these colors! This is a really quick card especially if you have these potted aloe already stamped and cut out. They were even colored and all I had to do was find matching paper. Get the right words, assemble and done. Links to see on website are below!

Feb 25, 2021 – With Sympathy

pattern paper, With Sympathy

Good Evening. Time sure fly’s when you are busy! Where does the time go?? We just seem to be so busy that the day gets away from us. Needed a sympathy card recently and had this pattern paper and thought it would make a quick card. It was super fast and easy with just black ink. Loved the matching paper with squares.

Birthday candles – Jan. 4, 2021

Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper

Good morning and happy new year! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. 🥳

The two cards today show different ways to color the EE53 skinny candles. One of our favorites is a gradient and the other is to add stripes/dots. With both, we start with the lightest color marker and then add the darker color. White paper is dull gloss. The pink striped background paper is from a paper pack. The green striped background we created using the HH28 dots and lines border stamp.

Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship, pattern paper

Good Evening! We had beautiful weather this weekend so I hope you did too and got to spend a little time outdoors. We planted some raspberries bushes and some flowers. Now that we are not traveling we should be able to keep them alive! Love these simple cards with pattern paper. This is the way to stock pile cards for when you need them 😊

Stamps Used:

Friendship, pattern paper

Hello! Today’s card is super cute and super easy! Pattern paper is always good for a quick card. That’s probably why our stash of it is so big! and then there is the paper you don’t want to use because then it will be gone and you can’t get it anymore 😳
