New Towne Village Card

I thought I would share one of the cards that we are making at the retirement village this week. We are making 2 others that we made in my July workshop. I modified this one based on one of the other cards from the workshop.

Stamps: Fun & Fast notes Paper: Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, white, Jersey Shore DS Ink: Basic Black Accessories: Ballet Blue – Brilliant Blue – Certainly Celery – Pumpkin Pie markers, photo corner punch, wavy edge punch (EK Success), ribbon (Pink Hedgehog), rhinestone, sticky tape, dimensionals
Tomorrow’s post will be later as I need to make my card – busy week. Thanks for looking and have a Terrific Tuesday!

Handsome Bashful Blushing Mouse

Editted to add: Blogger is having problems with scheduled posts. I am checking and often my post has to be posted later than I normally do. Sorry and hopefully they will get it fixed soon!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Can you believe we are more than halfway through the year. Where has the year gone?

Today’s card uses another nonflower image. This one is from Whipper Snapper. I just love the cute little mouse next to the flower pot. I used the watercolor technique to color my image. Do you see the sentiment circle? That was a mistake discovery. I has cut all my circles and was working with the layering when the white circle shifted to the right. I liked the look and decided to line all the circle up on the right rather than in the middle of each other.
I wanted something different for the image layers so I pulled out a border punch and cut each layer a little longer than the one below it. I used a clear gelly roll pen to add lots of sparkle to the image and I also traced around the circles to put a little glitz there also. As I was deciding how to put the card together, it still needed something. I search through my stash and ran across some pins I have had for a while and never used. I added the pin and tied some ribbon to it. Here is my creation.

Well I am off to find some more images to use on my cards. I have some I borrowed from my sister that I think I will use. 🙂 Thanks for looking and have a Marvelous Monday!

I’ve received an award!

I was so surprised to see that Samie at Samie’s Sentiments gave me an award.

She started visiting my blog about a month ago and continues to visit and leave me wonderful comments. I am supposed to nominate 5 – 10 other people. Since most of the blogs I check out have already received this award, I will keep my eye out for new bloggers to give this to . Thanks again Samie!


Saffron Navy Fluffles

Happy 4th of July!

Does everyone have some great plans for today? I plan on spending my day relaxing. I may cross stitch some and I will probably make a few cards for this week.
This must be the week that everyone is into Kraft cardstock. Several of the color challenges included Kraft. I haven’t used it in a while so it was fun to play with it.
This card is for the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge this week. Every Tuesday they post a new color combination for you to play with. This week you were to use Kraft, Night of Navy, and So Saffron. This combination is a little unusual and I wondered how I was going to use it. I hadn’t played with my Fluffles stamps in a while and I needed a break from all the flowers I had used lately so I pulled out a couple of images for my cards.
I don’t have any cute sentiments to go with my Fluffles stamps so I will be on the look out for some. If any of you know of some, pass them my way. Here is my creation.

Stars & Stripes

Quick post today as I need to run some errands.

I needed a few more 4th of July cards so I decided to use the challenge on No Time to Stamp which was to create a card using stars and stripes. It also fits the patriotic challenge on the Creative Belli blog that I had done a card for earlier this week. Since I used the spiral clip it also fits the challenge on Stampin’ B’s Design Team blog which was to use metal. The swirl on the front is embossed using Iridescent Ice but you can’t tell from the photo. Simple card but so cute. Here is my creation.
