Sept 7, 2021 – Always Bee-lated

2021 Releases, Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers

So yes…my cards are usually late…I’m a bee-lated kind of girl but at least I finally get there. I needed a birthday card for a friend. I had several of these bouquets already colored and just needed to be put together. The mosquitoes have been so bad outside that even though it has been sunny outside I’ve been chased inside! I don’t complain too much – love to stamp even after all these years.

Stamps Used:

G373 Best Year Yet Lg

G375 Bouquet #1

C329 Happy Bee lated

CC98 Sunflower w Bee Sm I used just the bee from this set!

Sept 1, 2021- Life Plants

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

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.

July 15, 2021 – Bee Better Soon

2021 Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, Frogs & Bugs, Get Well Soon, Thinking of You

Good Morning! The days just seem to move along quickly. I finished work a little early yesterday and was going to get busy with invoicing and sending orders out only to lose the internet! It’s hard to believe how dependent we are on the internet. One thing we can do – is stamp even when the internet is down!

I needed a card to send to a friend in the hospital so I went digging in my stash and was happy to find this card. The pictures just don’t do it justice! The colors are so pretty- orange and yellow.

Have a great day!

I’ve been using a polka dot stencil that you see showing up on some of my cards. Any one who knows me know that I like polka dots! I stole this card layout from one of a Karissa’s card. I like the simplicity of it. Enjoy your day!

June 29, 2021 – My Card Kits

2021 Releases, Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper, Just a Note, Thank You Cards, Thinking of You, With Sympathy

So last week I showed you one of my card kits. And so today’s card shows how I put them together.., there are four outside sayings along with a inside saying. So when I need a card I have one with the exact saying that I want.

I love doing cards like this so I have options! I feel like these pictures don’t do the card justice. It is so much better in real life.

June 26, 2021 Graduation Time

Gift Card Holders, Graduation, pattern paper

Good Afternoon! We have had rain for a few days now. We have really needed it but now it can go away although it does make for a good Stamping day! We are off to a graduation party this afternoon and of course my card wasn’t done so quickly had to put one together. You would think I would have a pile of them ready to go. I do have a stash of Birthday and Sympathy. I guess I should just keep working on graduation cards as long as I have all the stamps out!

Have a good weekend.

So this is how my cards start off generally. I will make lots of flowers and color and cut them out. I will stamp and punch out words. Then I’ll build kits of cards. Then when I need a card – I grab a kit and put it together with the words that I want! Then the rest gets put back into the kit pile.

I did add a little bee at the last minute. I needed a thank you card so I looked at my kits and came up with this card.
