Beautiful Bokeh!

Sometimes, it is really the paper that makes the card:


My bff sent me this wonderful bokeh paper from Lawn Fawn and gosh we both just love it!


The bokeh paper just screams winter wonderland and it reminds me of snow! I made two versions of this card:


No such thing as too much red or reindeers right!?


Rudolph would be proud!

Box of Christmas Kisses!

This year I made a lot of Christmas Card Box sets as gifts which gives me (and hopefully my recipient) a lot of joy:


To give it some personal touches I added a great pen, stamps, and a few little snowflakes.


I love these cards because it has a lot of dimension and embossing paste as snow.


A box of handmade cards is a great idea to give all year round because everyone needs cards for the holidays!

Christmas Just Around the Corner!

It’s never too early to start on Christmas cards right?

I have officially retired all of my ribbon and am wondering if anyone wants a nice neat box of it!

The Greatest Thing…

About me… is you!

I looooooooooove this card!! For the girl chickie, I created a flower hat by using white sequins and added pink bling to the center. I took the conductor hat from my chickie train stamp and used it for the boy chickie. For the clouds, I used a variety of chalk inks to get that subtle color and then sprayed frost shimmer to give it that lovely frosty look.  Love it!

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!
