Sweet Valentine

I'm off and running... Valentine card season has begun. "Already?", you say. Well, consider we have nine grandchildren, four children with spouses, a parent, and numerous other family and friends... yeah, I really needed to start already.

My new paper stock just arrived on Friday, so you won't see anything made with that until later this week. I began with whatever I had left from last year which is an older collection from My Mind's Eye that I simply adore called Heirloom from their Lost & Found Record It series. I had some from a pervious year and hunted all over until I finally found someone still selling the 12x12 sheets. Now I'm nearly out again. I wonder if I can find more. I'm not ready at all to give this collection up.

I altered a layered sticker from the collection, added some vintage lace from my stash and topped it with a border strip I cut with Alterations Thinlits Stitched Rectangles set in white glittered paper.

The little girl is fussy cut from a piece from the ephemera pack. The doily was cut with Sizzix Vintage Doily. The gorgeous pink ribbon is from Michaels and the flowers are by I Am Roses.

"Sweet" is another ephemera piece layered with a scrap (popped up with 3-D foam adhesive) of the text paper from the 6x6 paper pad that I used as my base mat.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Happy 2017 Card

Oops! One more wintery card to show you. Here I thought I was all done with the Bo Bunny Whiteout... but I guess not! I created this one for our friends, the Matzkes, a father and son team that partner with our son on some of his movie and podcast ventures.

"Happy" was cut with Alterations Thinlits Celebrations Words and 2017 with Vintage Market Alphabet Strip die using Tim's Kraft-Core Metallic paper.

The white card base is 4" x 5.5" and the blue cardstock is from Echo Park. The blue rhinestone in the center of my fussy cut mug is by TPC Studio. 

Now I'm positive I'm done with this collection for this year as it's all neatly packed away!

 I had the opportunity to work with Andy (the son of the famous duo) at one of our son's events this last year. Can you tell... I love kids!!!

Snowy Thank You Card

Hello, friends! Happy Monday!
Just 9 days until "Creativation" (formally CHA) begins. I love this time of year when all the new product is showcased and I'm pushed to my limit of not ordering every single paper collection, die, and ink pad that dances before my eyes. I eagerly wait for each and every video to go live so I can be inspired and challenged. I'm counting down the days!!!

I'm definitely desiring some new papers right now. I've put away my winter collections and have pulled out my "Love" stuff for Valentine cards. Unfortunately I have very little left from 2016. Good excuse to shop, right?
This is the last of my Christmas gift thank you cards made with Kaisercraft's Frosted and Bo Bunny's Whiteout. I have truly enjoyed working with these two collections, and I have enough to put by for next year.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You! Card & A Steampunk Pen

I'm winding down on my thank you cards. Just one more to show you after this one.

The focal image was sent to me as a gift with an order from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and was perfect for this card having that bit of blue on the bell. I cut the Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft-Core with a die from the Alterations Thinlits Stitched Rectangles set and the snowflake with their Mini Snowflakes topped with a TPC Studio blue rhinestone. The pattern papers are Bo Bunny's Whiteout.

I haven't posted any pens lately, but this one in the steampunk style was too pretty to pass up. I love this copper!

Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Bird Thank You Card

Today I have another thank you card to show you that I created again with Bo Bunny's Whiteout, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Metallics, and a 4" x 5.5" white card base.

I used two Alterations Thinlits dies... Celebration Words and Labels.
After my remarks in my last post about the weather, we had a significant change. From freezing cold, to unseasonably warm, to the bottom dropping out. It plummeted 30+ degrees since yesterday and is still heading lower to single digits by tomorrow night. Sounds like time to pull out a cozy blanket and a good book. I may even talk the Penmaker into building us a fire in the family room fireplace.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sub-Zero Temps Thank You Card

Hi friends! 
Sub-zero temps... not here! We've had a swing upward on the thermometer. Great for outdoor activity, but horrendous for the sinuses. I've had a sinus infection for several days that is killer... what a good excuse to curl up on the sofa and watch Hallmark Christmas movies. Got to make something good out of this, right?

My 4" x 5.5" card is made entirely with Bo Bunny's Whiteout and a bit of gold glittered cardstock. The "thank you" was cut with Alterations Thinlits Celebration Words.

The glittery border strip was cut with Thinlits Stitched Rectangles set. 
I'm loving creating these simple, basic cards!

Warming Up Thank You Card

I have a bunch of thank you cards I need to create, and it's a must that they fit into a regular envelope. Here is my first. 
When we visited Gatlinburg on our way back from Texas in the Fall, I purchased Bo Bunny's Whiteout collection from last year. It's perfect for what I need... snowy with a hint of Christmas, mainly due to all the glitter. I teamed it up with Kaisercraft's Frosted, Echo Park's I Love Winter solid blues, and Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Metallics. The card base I used is 4" x 5.5" white.

I used two dies on this card... Alterations Thinlits Stitched Ovals and Stitched Rectangles. The mug was fussy cut from a BB sheet and is popped up with 3-D foam adhesive.

My thank you was cut with Alterations Thinlits Celebration Words.

We woke to snow on the ground once more, so I'm thinking this "Warming Up with Hot Cocoa" sounds pretty good.
Hope you have a great day!
