Dare to Dream

There is new die cute out there in blog land called Die Namics, from My Favorite Things. They are the cutest shapes, borders and even doilies. They are fabulous. This Kite is one of them. The tails even come with the die. I used some small jute for my string.

The scallop is a border punch from Stampin Up. I think that is my most favorite punch from there. I use it all the time.

I found some awesome background paper for my kite. Love the clouds in the paper. It is from Imaginesce. I know that isn't how you spell that, but it works for me. I will have to look at the paper and see how it is spelled and keep it on my desk for the next time. I have quite a stack of paper from there. Love it.

I bought the stamps a while ago and didn't pay attention who made them, so if you are interested in them, let me know and I can get you the company that makes them.

Well, that is it for me tonight, maybe I can get more cards posted tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Get Well

This is for all the Lantern lovers out there. Isn't this the prettiest one you've seen in a while?

The colors are very colorful and love the distressed look.

I used my crimper that I actually had to dust it off because I haven't used it in so long. After I colored the image, I run it through the crimper, then distressed it. Very easy to do.

I made a card like this at Robin's, but when I wanted to make one, I hadn't bought the Easter stamp from Stampin Up for the flowers, so I used the new Flourishes stamp. I think it is called Love Letters.

The background is made by using the Lattice Folder in the Cuttlebug.

All the punches used are Stampin Up and the paper is from my stash.

Thanks for checking out my blog.

Have a great week.

Birthday Wishes

Love, Love these purses. And they are made with the cupcake punch from Stampin Up. Who would have thought that huh?

I punched the purses with 3 different design papers and added the closure and handle. The closure is the small oval and the handle is the medium size oval with the little oval cut out of the middle.
Perfect card for a lady who loves purses, like my daughter. She is now selling 31 Purses. Yep, I need to send her this card. She would love it.

(Hey Chris, here is you card in case it doesn't get in the mail soon. I know it isn't your birthday, but wanted you to see the card.)

Of course added some ribbon and rhinestones and a perfect card.

Have a great week and come back again.

Mr. & Mrs.

Isn't this the cutest wedding card. There is so many versions of this card in the blog world. This is what I came up with.

Love the flowers and butterflies lace, and this is adorable on this card.

All the hearts are punched out with the large heart punch from Stampin Up along with the 2 different sized ovals.

I added some rhinestones to the bride hearts and black gel dots for the buttons on the groom heart. Don't you love the bow tie, it was hand cut.

The background is the Cuttlebug folder, don't know what the name of it is, but it was lacy and I thought it would be great for this card.

Side view.
Thanks for coming back to check out my new posts.

Happy Birthday Circles

I needed a colorful birthday card. And this is what I come up with. Aren't these colors great together?

I glued all the circles on and then added the silver stars that come on a sticker sheet. I know the picture doesn't show the stars very good. But that is what is on the circles. The flash on my camera went crazy with the stars shinning.

The Design Paper is from Bo Bunny and the card stock is from my stash.

Stamps and punches are from Stampin Up.

The Scallop Border is from My Favorite Things called Die Namics. The Die Namics are steel dies that you run through your Big Shot or Cuttlebug. You need to check them out on My Favorite Things web site. Let me know if you are interested in any of them.

Wow, second post of the day. I am doing great so far.

Hope to add a few more tomorrow. I have a great Wedding Card to show you and very easy to make. So stop back in tomorrow and hope I have time to put it on here for you to see.

Until then,

Happy Stampin.

Have a beautiful day

Finally getting back to posting.
I just love this cutie, and isn't this so cute.
This Bear is a stamp from There She Goes Rubber Stamp Company.
The set is called Back in 10. Isn't that a perfect Title for this set.
I colored the bear image with Prisma Watercolor Pencils. This give the image a soft look.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts Company.
The Martha Stewart Border Punch used on the bottom of the card went perfect to finish off this card.
Only thing left to add was the ribbon and just about all my cards have ribbon on them. This is Royal Blue Grosgrain Ribbon.


Thank You for checking out my blog.
Come back often and see more posts.
