Papertry Ink Inspired God card set.

Hello friends! I made this set of cards using the PTI Inspired God stamps and die. I also used Cheery Lynn butterfly trio dies, and Coutour Creations embossing folders from the Romantique collection. I love how they turned out simple yet elegant with the very vanilla and pop of black. Thanks for popping by and many blessings xx

New stamps from STAMPlorations

Hi friends! I just got 9 new Stamps from the STAMPlorations TYPOGRAFIA IN FAITH collection. My lovely friend Ina, alerted me to them, she knows me well! When I saw they were KJV scripture I had to get them. Absolutely wonderful big bold sentiments and I will be getting the rest ASAP! Here's my first card with "Thy Word is a Lamp stamp".  I embossed it in gold on very vanilla card then die cut with a stitched rectangle,  I added that to a card base which I layered with some old SU paper, and a strip of gold washi tape. Done! The sentiment is the star! I will be adding this to STAMPlorations never ending challenge. Thanks for popping by, many blessings xx

Happy 32nd birthday Carly!

Hi friends! This card is for our second daughter Carly, who turned 32 ( how??) on the 16th. She LOVES cute so I had to use my new stamp set from The Stamps Of Life, " donuts2stamp", I glossed them all up with glossy accents and fussy cut them. The card was cut using Sizzix framelits step-ups dies.  I used MFT paper, Layers Of Color Sentimental Banners and the matching dies from Spellbinders. The cute ribbon I think was from SU. I just think it's stinkin' cute!! Thanks so much for popping by, many blessings! Xxx

70th Birthday Wishes!

Hi friends! I was asked to make a card for a wonderful lady at our church by another lady at our church, Margaret turned 70 and you would never know it! Her and her husband are our Sunday school superintendents and have been for many years, they are beautiful people and came to church a couple of months after we did in 1986, so I've known them a long time. Their son is now the Pastor of our church, and he also is a wonderful man. So, this card was made using Kaisercraft paper and a die I got on eBay. The 70 is stickers and the sentiment is from IBS. Thanks for dropping by, and many blessings xxx

Birthday cards for Missions.

Hi friends! I am making cards for card sets. I'll be doing 12 sets, each set will have 6 cards. These 12 birthday cards are now my 3rd lot of cards I've done. I've already done 12 thinking of you, and 12 with scripture verses on, so I'm halfway there!  These will be sold at church, and all money will go to our missions fund!  For these cards I used MFT balloon dies, PTI balloon string and bow dies, CTMH happy die and the birthday wishes is a stamp from IBS. I enjoyed these cards, lots of fun!!  Thank you so much for your comments and many blessings! xxx

Fathers Day Shirt & Tie Cards.

Hi friends! September the 3rd is Father's Day here in Australia, and my dear daughter Carly takes cards to work and sells them for me, so, here are the first 4. I love this shirt & tie fold card and found the best you tube on it at Keenan Creations  I think it's titled "easy shirt and tie card". She is very precise and gives all the measurements and her tutorials are very easy to understand. I added a Dad word die after I took these pics. If I can remember how to I will put a link in here to her video. ( it's been awhile! Lol) best to use thin paper to make it easy to fold. Thanks so much for popping by and I love to read your comments! Judy, Lagene, Donna , Lindsay, thanks so much for your regular comments. Many blessings xx https://youtu.be/v8Zy7jJ8Ikg

Balloon Kitty!

Hi friends! I made this card today for my daughter Carly, to give to her friend who loves cats! She came over to pick up her brother Dennis ( still at home) for brunch, and asked me to have it for her when they got back... no pressure lol !! So I searched and found this very old Penny Black wood mount stamp called, Balloon Kitty, and matching my Spectrum Noir pens with a sheet of MFT plaid paper. Coloured him in!  I cut him out with a stitched die, added some matching ribbon, then pop dotted it onto the card base which had my MFT paper on. Added a sentiment and some tiny Martha Stewart stars. Done! She was pleased! Nothing's too hard for my Carly 💕  Thanks for popping by and many blessings xx
