Happy Birthday (Chris)

I made this card for my daughter's birthday.
Today is her birthday and I sent this card on it's way to her.
I know she will like the flowers and the colors.
I like using these colors together.
Almost Rust, Creamy Beige and Black.
The stamps are Eastern Blooms from Stampin Up.

Happy Birthday Lady

This birthday card was perfect for my Aunt Lee. It fits her to a "T". Hope she doesn't see this post, because she might not think so. My Aunt Lee is witty, funny and just a barrel of fun to be around. I love this stamp, and I think it is a Wanda Stamp from Stampin Up. This stamp is to cool and perfect for a funny card. And that little gift, wow, the only thing that would fit in that little box is jewelery. My idea of a nice gift. I made the base of the card white and then added black with bright red to mount the lady stamp. The black brings out the red and the white papers. My red sure didn't turn out as red as it is. I mean this red sparkled it was so red.

Mini Candycane Holder

I needed a little Candy Holder for the Holidays,
so I came up with this one to put mini candycanes in.
Turned out nice.
I also want to add a ribbon in the top
so it can be hung on the Christmas Tree.
I stamped red snowflakes on the back side of the designer paper.
I made a Fall Candy Holder at Toyrifix.
(which is at the top right)
The Fall Candy Holder had Hershey Kisses and a Nugget Cube in it.
I put the Hershey Mini Candybar in mine.
I think the candybar fit nicer than the Hershey Kisses,
the kisses made it bulge out and eventually the kisses fell out.

Merry Christmas

I love how this card turned out.
It has the look of antique, yet so bright in colors.
This has to be my favorite Christmas Card
so far that I made this year.
I used the Tombow Markers to color with
and the stamp is from Magenta.


This is really a cute card, but the scan sure doesn't give it any justice. I used the cuttlebug A2 folder of the village, added some circles, bow and some sprigs. Done. To bad the scanner didn't do a better job with it.

Boy! Doesn't these desserts look good.
The pie expecially.
I added lots of glitter and this card sure does sparkle.
And inside is "You're so sweet".
Stamps are from Great Impressions and paper from Bo Bunny.

Happy Birthday Chef

Another cutie from Great Impressions.
I made this a Happy Birthday Card.
Let's hope he looks like he is going to make a cake.


Reminds me of summer and people canning the vegetables from the gardens. With all this cold weather it makes me wish summer was back again.
Inside I put What's Cooking ?
Great Impressions stamp, colored with Tombow Markers. I added glitter to the doily on the shelf. Love the flower and butterfly ribbon, I have had it for awhile and didn't know what to do with the ribbon, worked perfectly on this card.

Friends are LIfe's Nicest Perks

Another cute stamp from Great Impressions. Inside the saying is "that was so you

Brown dotted paper is from Bo Bunny.

Thank You

This is one of the new stamps from Great Impressions. I love the toaster. And just the right saying for a friend. The card opens only with the little blue paper where the toaster is, and I added Thank You inside it. The red dot paper is from Bo Bunny. I added silver shimmerz on the toaster to make it shine.

Let it Snow

I like the way this card turned out. The snowflake background went perfectly with the snow on the boot. I put glitter on the snow and the hat, but it doesn't show up very well. I like Hedgehogs and this one is from Penny Black.

Penguin Christmas Card

I think Penguins are my favorite Animal at Christmas Time. They are so cute. I made this Penguin Card using the scalloped circles from Stampin Up and of course the snowflake A-2 folder from Cuttlebug. It opens from the left side. The penguin stamp is from Designs Unlimited.

Warmest Greetings

Of course I wanted this to be the first card that you see.
I like it the best of all of them.
I stamped another bow and cut it out
and pop dotted it ontop of the other bow.
I tore the bottom of the paper.
All stamps are from Great Impressions.

Two Little Wishes

I know Chickadees aren't on everyones got to have one list, but this is a nice card. Added a colorful Christmas Ribbon and a brad and that make it look like a Christmas Card. I used the Great Impression Stamp of the Month for the background on the card.

Merry Christmas Mouse

There always has to be a mouse when you think of Christmas
and this one is really cute with the flower pot.
Lots of layers on this card.
And the pine sprigs are from a punch.
Add a bow and done.

Merry Christmas Owls

I always wanted an owl stamp, and with all my stamps, I don't have one until now. I think the owls are as adorable as ever. And the saying is perfect for Santa's visit on Christmas Eve. Love the Santa bag with the holly and berries.

Merry Christmas

I am an animal lover and really like this dog, I think he is so cute with the antlers. And the sleigh with presents. The dog stamp is from Great Impressions and the Merry Christmas stamp, I can't remember where I got it from. I also used Stampin Up punches on this card also.

Season's Greetings

Another cute card. I like the cabin and the trees.
I chose to make a circle with the cabin stamp,
layer it and I used a pop dot to raise it from the card.
I used the scallop punch for the bottom of the card.
I added a red dot with a glaze pen so it would look raised on the card.


Aren't these Reindeer really lovable.

The stamp is from Great Impressions.

Season's Greetings

I liked this card that I seen on the internet,
don't remember where I seen it.
I changed a few things and really loved the way this card turned out.
I hope you like it as well.
The Tree is embossed and really shows up nice on the card.

Merry Christmas

So simple, but so elegant.
Christmas tree by Stampin Up.

A Butterfly Thanks card. I stamped the butterfly the second time and attached it on top of the first one so it would have the raised look. The base of the card isn't that beige, it is lighter and doesn't look peach at all. I think my scanner has a mind of it's own.

Stamps by Stampin Up, A2 Folder by Cuttlebug and punches.

Mr. & Mrs.

Perfect for a beautiful wedding.
It is very elegant and white in color not gray.
Stamps are from Stampendous, A2 Cuttlebug Folder and oval punch from Stampin Up.

Halloween Goodies

I expecially like doing Halloween Cards. They are so fun to create. It must be the colorful paper that draws me to the Halloween Cards. I stamped Happy Halloween inside the card.
Stamps - unknown
Paper - Fall Stacker
and Punches


Another card from my October Workshop. I like the colors on this card. I also did the same card using blue, green, pink and brown card stock. They all came out very pretty. I made some of them Birthday Cards.
We all Grow By Dreams Stamp - Stampin Up, Cuttlebug A2 Folder - Swiss Dots and Tombow Markers.

Autumn Greetings

This is a Tent Card, it stands up by itself.
I sponged ink around the edges to add color.

Brr Frosty

This is my favorite card. I think the snowlady is so cute on skis. It makes a nice Christmas Card for anyone. I added a snowflake brad and some ribbon for embellishing.

Happy Holiday Trio

Just love the santa, reindeer and snowman. And of course the snowlady is in the scalloped circle. This is a fun card. I added some green polka dot ribbon and glitter to finish the card.

Peppermint Snowlady

This lady snowman has the peppermint candy border and the single piece of candy. The single piece of candy is popped up from the card. I trimmed along the candy border at the bottom, so the front of the card lifts up just below the candy. I love the colors of this card.

Penguin Christmas Card

This is also a great card.
The mittens are cute as well as the penguin.
This card fits in a letter envelope,
I just wanted a different size card to do
and it worked out well fitting in this envelope.

Gift Giving

So darling this card is.
I think the little snowman is so cute
and giving a small tree for the gift.
Of course all stamps are from Great Impressions.

Let It Snow

Here is the new stamp of the month from Great Impressions. Isn't she just awesome. And so many ways you can make her look good. In this card she is standing in front of 3 christmas trees. Really cute.

Are you ready for Christmas cards. . .

Here they come ! ! !

Thinking of You

This is another way of using the Merci Stamp Set Butterfly. I layered the butterfly with scallop punches. Then added a border in the middle of the card and but the polka dot ribbon on top of the border. Popped up the butterfly from the card and poof, done. So quick and easy. I did add some glitter on the butterfly to give it some bling.

Happy Birthday Butterfly

I used punches to layer the butterfly and popped up the butterfly away from the card. I added a blue polka dot ribbon. A very easy card to make in no time.

The butterfly stamp is from the Merci Stamp Set. Which is from Stampin UP.

Happy Birthday

All stamps are from Stampin Up.
I like the orange colors
and the tag really looks good on this card.

Busy Busy Busy

It sure has been awhile, just to busy lately.
Here is a few new cards before I put my lastest
Card Workshop on here for you to see.

Happy Day

I seen this type of card on the web,
and I just had to try it.
It is called a Buckle Card.
I liked the way it turned out.
And the pink papers are the right color combination
with the dot paper from My Minds Eye.
I think it is just a pretty card.

Totally Cool

I made this card for my granddaughter Jacquie, she will be 14 this month. Loves to shop, like me. To bad she isn't into stamping and scrapbooking. We would shop till we dropped. She is more MALL shopping. Clothes, Clothes and more Clothes.

I added the lacy look to the right of the card. The is from Martha Stewart collection. Don't you just love Martha? Well, maybe just the punch. Stamps from Stampin Up.

Happy Birthday

This card took a while longer to create but easy to do. I had to cut out the 2 large flowers and then I glued them where I wanted them. The small flowers are from a punch. This stamp set is from Stampin Up and it is called Doodle This. I like how the peach and black cardstock looked together.

Bewitching Tag

A tag I made to add to a card
or a trick or treat bag of candy.

Autumn Greetings

I just love this mouse stamp. And the little bird is also cute. The mouse stamp is from Great Impressions and the Autumn greetings is from a Clear Stamp Set. So cute for a Fall Card. And I use Tombow markers for coloring.

Thank You

This is the latest card that I created with the Cuddlebug folders. I really like the look of the hearts and then I did a different bows on each cards. I like both looks. The flower is from Stampin Up and the Thank You is from Hero Arts.


Soon I will be adding new
Christmas Cards to my blog.
I have done some new Christmas cards
in the latest Card Workshops.
So come back and check them out.

Hope she likes it.
Fall is such a nice time of the year,
with all the leaves turning their special colors.
Stamp by Great Impressions and
Lettering is from Stickers.

Trick or Treat

Another cute card for the season,
and Trick or Treat is coming soon.
So be ready for those Trick or Treaters.

Cardnal Watering Can

Isn't this a cute card for Christmas? I like them both.
The first Cardnal Card reminds me of fabric. It was run through a crimper both way. That is how it made that crinkled look and the second Cardnal Card has glitter all over it. They are both nice cards and perfect for the holidays.

Envelope Purse Card

This is an envelope card. You can put mini candy bars, necklaces, money anything that is small will fit in this card.
I used a flower punch for the leaves and stem and another flower punch for the actual flowers. Added dots to the envelope and folded the bottom up in the back and stapled it and covered up the staples with ribbon. Added a pretty lace for the handles. Really cute and quick to make.

Happy Haunting

Wow, this card took some time, but I like how it turned out. A very pretty card. I think this one should be for my Uncle. His birthday is Halloween, just perfect for him.
I added felt flowers with brads in the centers. The stamps are cheap ones. Don't remember the companies.
