Lady Bug Parade Part One

 Hello Everyone,

I do seem to be stuck on a spring theme.  Today I have a group of cards I made with a ladybug stamp set.

Stamp and Punch set: Hello Ladybug from Stampin' Up

Various die cuts

On the first card, I stamped a small flower over a striped decorative paper for a pretty background. The wings were punched from glitter paper.







The background here is dry embossed and highlighted with a tan ink.


Glad you stopped by today.  Check back for more of the ladybug parade in the next post. Hope your day is filled with good things.

Think Spring Part One

 Hello Everyone,

My cards today have a spring theme.  Wishful thinking on my part.  A bit of sunshine and a few flowers would be very welcome today.  I used a stamp set I have had for a while.  The stamps are so cute.  I made lots of cards using the same stamps. I will be sharing all the cards over the next few posts.  

Stamps: Nature's Wishes from Penny Black; Various sentiments

Start off the New Year with Coffee

 Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the new year!!  I always like to start a new day with coffee. So why not the new year?  

The cards were made to send to my coffee loving friends and family. 

Stampin' Up stamps and dies were used.





This is a masculine version of the first card above.


Let's all be awesome today!  I usually feel awesome after a good cup of coffee.  LOL 

So glad you stopped by today. Hope your day is lovely.

Cocktails Anyone?

 Hello Everyone,

I thought that the cocktail cards fit in with the coming New Year celebration.  The sentiments have a touch of humor too.  I already sent this set of cards out.  And I really think I need to make a few more.

I used a stamp set and dies from Stampin Up.









Wishing you a Happy New Year!!  

May it be full of good things and lots of love.

Cards made From Full Sheet Stamping

 Hello Everyone,

Wanted to share this set of cards made with a full sheet of stamping.  I stamped a full sheet of white cardstock and then cut into pieces for the card fronts.

Below is a photo of all the different versions of the card.  Most are for birthdays.


This is how the cardstock looked after lots of stamping.  I have started to cut up the full sheet here.


This of a piece sized for one card front.



More pics of the card fronts:







This is a fun way to make a card by creating your own focal point paper.  Was quite fun too.  

So glad you stopped by today.

Santa with Sleigh Christmas Cards

 Hello Everyone,

Finished making my Christmas cards for this year.  Only made thirteen cards this year.  I am ashamed to say I bought some ready make cards to send this year as well. Just ran out of time. But, I wanted to share the cute Santa card I did make.

I used the same layout for all the cards.  I varied the paper selections.  I added red or sliver glitter glue for a bit of sparkle.

Supplies used:

Stamps: Gifts from Santa - My Favorite Things (retired); Sentiment on inside Stampin' Up

Decorative papers

Die Cuts from My Favorite Things, Spellbinders, Stampin Up

Glitter Glue

Red Ribbon






Inside of all cards.





Will be sending all of the cards out as soon as possible. Not to long before Christmas will be here. Do have all my gift shopping done. Hope your Holidays are super lovely. 

Karen
