Golden Poinsettia

A quick and easy Christmas card! The flower looks almost real! I just sponged a little ink over the petals.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Envelope punch board/liner

This great tool will be available on my SU site in September!! Not only is it great to create envelopes, but here is a video showing how to make the liners, too!

Instead of cutting the bottom off, as shown in the video, I would just cut the piece in half and create two liners!

Blue Poinsettia

I'll have a blue Christmas!!! Wouldn't the Joyful Christmas on page 27 of the holiday catalog, work great for this card? Or how about the Festive Flurry set on page 30, especially in the blues! Love it and hope you do, too!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!!!!

Pink Postcard

First off, let me tell you that it is SO disappointing (among other things) to have such terrible internet service in this day and age. I know I should be grateful that I have any at all, but this is almost ridiculous. With that being said, it also explains why I am not able to post as much as I would like, but I hope you will continue to check in to see the new posts, when I can.

Here is my latest creation with the postcard stamp, which I love. I certainly hope I am NEVER asked to choose my favorite stamp, because I would never be able to choose just one! I used several sets to create this card and added pearls to the flowers, crystal effect to the butterfly, and even layered the flowers and "stamp" for dimension. I am sure that you will be seeing more of this style of card from me in the future.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Santa's Noel

Christmas will soon be upon us! So I am getting a head start, at least on my cards! This one is really just basic layering and stamping. I also sponged along the edges to give it a little more dimension. Hard to see in the photo, but also highlighted some areas with stickles to add some dazzle.

And here is the what I did with the inside of the card.

Hope you have an enjoyable day and thank you so much for stopping by!!!

Liz's Butterflies

This lovely card was a CASE (copy and share everything) from an SU friend, Liz Thayer. It really looks very elegant and I hope you will give it a try!

To created the cover, I cut a slightly larger piece of cardstock and embossed it, then trimmed it to size because the embossing creates a little shrinking. I cut the second piece to size, then cut both pieces at the same time, using the top of one and the bottom of the second one.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
