Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a fun card to share using PaperTrey Ink - Embellished Elegance, which was on clearance in January.  It was a really fun set to play with so many little stamps to add to create a wreath-like frame, and so many greetings too.   

I made a few cards with this set, some Happy Birthday 
and the Happy Everything card above.

Spellbinders - Nature Grown - Congratulations

Happy Saturday,

Today, I have a second card I made using Spellbinders/Fun Stampers Journey - "Nature Grown".  This one is a Congratulations card I made for my brother-in law who accepted a new job in Georgia and will be leaving the snowy midwest.  

I used the color combination, Kraft, Fine Linen and Ocean Tides.  The snow is sparkly fluff which is adhered with glue.  I used a glue pen where I wanted snow under the trees and like embossing powder applied the fluff.  No heat set needed just press in the fluff and tap off the excess and allow to dry.

The sentiment is from Avery Elle "Loads of Wishes", a great greeting set which has just about every sentiment you might need.  I made a couple congratulations and a birthday card too.

Blessings to you,

PaperTrey Ink - Perfect Fit Valentine

 Happy Saturday!

Today, I have the Valentine's Day card for my husband.  It uses a retiring set from PaperTrey Ink called "Perfect Fit".  I love all the pieces and the possibilities.  

  It's a clear set, so I decided to use the 3 patterned puzzle pieces and tried to make a fun pattern with them.  I used PaperTrey Ink - True Black, Smokey Shadow, Pure Poppy and Pale Peony inks.  

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend!

Unity Stamps - Possible, Not Easy - Sympathy

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a sympathy card to share.  A good friend's father passed away in January after a long battle with Alzheimer's, such a heart breaking disease.

 I had just ordered some stamps from Unity and there were several great sets which would work for a sympathy card.  They were having a birthday sale in January, stamps were 50% or more off.  This is one set I bought - "Possible, Not Easy".  I love purple cone flowers.  The script background is also from Unity stamps - "A Faithful Letter" which has a combination of scripture verses about God's faithfulness. 

I love purple cone flowers, which were colored with copic markers.  The script is a separate panel, finished with purple ribbon to hide the edge.  I added some wavy stitched, which was a way to correct my first stitched pass which was a bit uneven.  I haven't used the sewing machine in quite some time and I had to refill the bobbin which I dread, only took me an hour to get it to feed through without binding up - LOL.  It was worth it I think.  I love real stitching on a card.
