Have you ever had so many blessings in one week that you are just giddy! Well that happens to me often and this week was no exception! First we traveled to Portals New Mexico to see our oldest son Tres Segler become the new head Coach of Eastern New Mexico University! Please go to you tube and see his press conference. We are so proud and excited to have been a part of this wonderful new journey in their lives! He was the former assistant at Mid Western University, and they are leaving some wonderful friends behind! I know that they will form a new extended family and many will be blessed by this move! Next I got to keep Kyle and Ashley's sweet little Landry that is four months! She is just the easy going laid back little love of our lives! She is smiling and talking all of the time and I can not help being so amazed as I watch Poppie who is smitten by her!
My cards today are to get you some free inspiration and rainy day therapy! Lots of rain here in Little Elm on the pond. Water is overflowing the banks and running up the street! This first card has been cut with a stampin up edge die and I love the look of the two colors and shadow effect! The white background has been dry embossed and edge cut as well. The flowers and have been stamped and punched then colored with sponge to paper. The edge of the card is covered with pink satin ribbon. I will be happy to order these supplies for you email@example.com.
The layered card is one of my favorite designs ever! Love the look of the images matching up and it brings back my days of sewing were we worked so hard to match the stripes and designs. The design is stamped all on one piece of white and then cut apart so that you can match the design on each layer with the next one. You do not have to match in a straight line mix it up and down matching for a great new look!
The cute little bird was a stampin up die cut and we double cut his head and added it on top to give the bird dimension. The brick is a stampin up embossing folder that has been iced with white ink on brown card stock. We colored the flowers with colored pencils, and cut the branch and leaves with a die cut! Thanks for the great comments on my projects and I am wishing you some fun therapy!

Hello sweet art friends! I am rejoicing today and counting my many blessings and have been singing hymns that remind me of my mother and father. I miss them but often remember the best gift they gave me was my FAITH! I have made so many wonderful friends through my art of stamping, and I spent the day with two of them yesterday! Lorna and Betty keep me laughing and creating! We mades several very different and awesome cards. I will post them later. These cards are to get you inspired today to not just make some cards but to send them out! It feels so good to get something in the mail that is not bill and not a email! So be inspired to make some cards this week, count your blessings, and remember a friend by sending cards! The card with the chick and balloons was made using the new balloon punch from stampin up. It is so quick and easy and looks different with each designer paper you try! The right side has been die cut and placed over solid paper so that it shows through and adds another color on you card. The chicken was colored with ink and sponges, to give it a bright Easter accent. Do you remember seeing little chicks
that had been dyed colors for Easter? I think that dates me?
This stamp set has become one of my favorites and the die cuts are just so very fun to use and can do so many different things. Botanical Blooms has a great bundle special stamp set, dies, and coordination paper! Let me order it for you!
Heartfelt dies and glitter: This was a card made in a class that Lorna and I took together. This glitter is lovely and you better like it cause you will wear it for a week after! HA! This die cut was cut in half and placed under the label, The paper ribbon was colored and placed over the top. Then the little flowers were die cut and molded with a tooling a matt after spritzing with water. I will be looking forward to seeing your corner punch design! Happy Stamping! Hugs!

Have been traveling again and keeping my grand girls! I am posting several cards for you since, I will leave again soon. I hope to see some of your samples ! This card is so beautiful that the picture does not give it justice! The background is a sparkle paper that is dark purple, the die cuts are in cream and turquoise and they give it such a pop of color! The edge die sis the new stampin up die from the wildflower set. It is very different and versatile in use. Had a great time making these with my stamp friends Debbie and Lorna!
I just love this look so thankful that my stamp friend Betty reminded us of it! This project is on a purple verigated shimmer sheet. It has a texture of plastic mixed with metal and hold she very well when put into embossing folder. The folder gives it the look of being hand carved. After embossing I sanded the raised portion to remove the color and that really makes the design more vivid and totally changes the look. It is backed on lighter purse and placed on a darker rule card base. The Happy Spring sentiment is framed with the same colors. Once you try this out you will not be able to stop! I had difficulty finding the shimmer sheet in the local stores so I googled for them.
This is a Heartfelt die cut and one of my faves! Lorna and I attend a class and are so excited that Scrapin Good Time In Corsicana is going to host a class July 14th! Check out her website as I am teaching there too!
Corner fold gives such a boost to a card shape! This card is cut from a full piece of card stock. It is the standard card base size extended the length of the card stock, then cut a point on the end and score so that you can turn the point back. The fold then becomes the focal point on the front of your card! I covered the card with matching designer papers, and added the bird house with little bird and the large pearl, and the stampin up die cut butterfly! Email me with your questions and stamp order firstname.lastname@example.org ! ENJOY!
