Flowers in June!

Right now we are experiencing a little June gloom but flowers are on the way!

This card was very fun to make because I used a few different die cuts and put it all together! And again, I got a little carried away withe glossy accent!

With Gratitude!

This card was inspired by my best friend who sent me such an adorable card!

So I made my own version and I just love how it came out.  All this time I should have been making these long sized cards because there is so much room to design! This monkey from Paper Smooches is so adorable!

Special Delivery 2.0!

I remade this stork card for a custom order and wanted to share!

I made it on a much smaller scale and I like how it turned out!  Here is the previous post if you are interested in comparing! The only issue I had with the Glitter paper (on the previous card) was that the entire package of paper had a really strange smell that would not go away.  I tried leaving the paper out on my balcony hoping it would “air out” but the smell remained.  I ended up just tossing it! Live and learn!

I love this gift because I was able to incorporate the same paper that I used for her baby shower invitations!  (Will post invites shortly!

The possibilities are endless with this Martha Stewart Valentine’s Day Paper!

I made another version that was smaller and with different colored twine and felt hearts:

My friend was asking me how long it usually takes me to make one card and I realized that one card actually takes me a few hours! Especially if I get stuck and cannot figure out color combos etc. I find that the first version of a card I make has little flaws here and there but I end up perfecting it after I’ve made version 2.0! After that, it is really quick and easy to make a card because I know what works.

Be My Valentine!

I was inspired to make a few Valentine’s Day Cards…

Love is in the air! And thanks to Martha Stewart, I get to make all these cute cards.  I have to say patterned paper makes all the difference!  Also, I found a packet of Martha Stewart felt stickers that were perfect for this occasion.

Aren’t the little heart buttons absolutely adorable? The is my first time using felt cut outs and I love it.  So so so cute!

More to come!

A Dolphin Snow Globe!

Starting the new year off with all things Lawn Fawn! I love their stamps!

So to start off the new year, I decided to splurge and finally get all the adorable lawn fawn stamps I have been drooling over for the last few months.  Yes, stamps are now like candy I’ve decided, and I plan to gobble, munch, indulge as much as I can! For this card, I used PTI’s clear cardstock which I absolutely love to make the snow globe layer.  I stamped on water bubbles using my white stamp and just hand cut the stand for the globe!
