Layers of Christmas

Good Day All!  

I am here today with a card I made for the PTI Create Along With Us October challenge where you make a card or project that was inspired by the design team's creations during the latest release.  For me, there were too many but I finally chose two projects and combined them into one card.

I made this card using the Papertray Ink Seasonal Borders Winter Stamp Set and matching dies, the Words To Live By Joyful Mini Stamp Set and matching dies, and finally the Pierced Feature Frames Oval Dies.  (I just noticed that my snowflake is missing from the center of my bow and unfortunately I can't take any more pictures until tomorrow when it's light out).  LOL!

 



Here are the two photos that inspired my card.  The first is by Amy Sheffer and the second is by Laurie Schmidlin.  Aren't they pretty?

Here are some more pictures of my card:


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek.  I hope you have a most wonder day!

Pretty Christmas Packaging

Good Day To You and Welcome!

Today I am showing you another little creation using Papertray Ink Stamps and Dies and this one is for their Make It Monday challenge.

The challenge is to use printed paper for making packaging.  Here I have made a little bag/box using some red on ivory printed paper and so I have stamped this beautiful Seasonal Borders Winter Stamp set on ivory cardstock and cut it out using the Seasonal Borders Winter Dies set.  For the tag I have used the Joyful Mini Stamp set along with the coordinating Words To Live By Joyful Die.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look.  Have a wonderful day and better tomorrows.

Papertrey Ink September 2018 Blog Hop Challenge

Good Evening To You and Welcome!

Today I am showing my card created using Papertray Ink stamps and dies.  I have admired the designs of this company from afar for a while now, adoring the work of the design team through the newsletter.  I finally purchased a few things from the September release and was so happy my supplies arrived early on a Saturday, as I was able to spend the whole weekend playing with my new treasures.  It felt like a Christmas of long ago when I would open my gifts and spend days playing.

For my card I have used the oh so sweet Merry Mug Stamp Set along with the Merry Mug Dies.  I used Ranger Distress Inks and Distress Oxides to color and highlight everything.  The Leaves are by Sizzix and the patterned paper is from Raspberry Road.  Oh, and I must not forget my new Pierced Oval Dies (also by PTI).  I just love these, as you get three stitched edges with each cut.

Here is the inspiration photo for my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look.  I look forward to showing you my next project using more of my Papertray Ink stamps and dies (I'm almost finished with it).

Have a great evening and better tomorrows.

Wedding Day Countdown

Hello Everyone!

Today I come to you as a Guest Designer for Magnolia-licious and the challenge this month is Anything Goes with the option of Wedding.

I was excited about the optional wedding theme because I have had this idea in my head for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to finally make it.

This is Mr & Mrs Magnolia from the 2018 You're Invited collection.  Are they not just the cutest?!?  I've colored them up with Distress Inks and a little bit of Copic markers here and there.

The white roses are from my stash, the pink flowers and little gray flowers are made using DooHickey's club kits volumes 5 & 9.  For the leaves and stems I use the Magnolia Rose Leaf and the Leaf & Swirl dies and the stem or branch from the Vintage Box #6.

The patterned papers I've used for this project are called Everlasting by Nitwit Collections.

Distress Inks:  Aged Mahogany, Bundled Sage, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso, Hickory Smoke, Peeled paint, Pumice Stone Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood

Get Well Soon!

Good Day To You Friends!

I'm so glad you're here.  I hope all is well on your end, wherever that may be.

I made this card for my dear 85 year old mother in law who is recovering from a couple of surgeries to repair a fissure that just sort of appeared out of nowhere in her stomach.  She is on the mend and doing quite nicely but the recovery isn't fast enough for her.  She wants to get back to teaching water aerobics.

This little sweetie is called Tilda With Bunny Slippers.  I've stamped her with Memento black and colored her with Distress Inks.

The flowers and stems are from my stash, I died a few white mini roses dark blue with Distress Ink and die cut the leaves with the Magnolia Rose Leaves die.

I made the little "pills" in the bottle using heart shaped cookie decorating candies and then inked them with Distress Ink.  Don't you just love those band aid's?  Those are made using the Magnolia Heart Band Aid die.


Here is the patient "chart" or clip board for the doctor's notes, made with several Magnolia dies.  The Heart and Spoon are from the Recipe Card collection, the Thyme is from the Little Italy collection and the stars are from the DooHickey's club volume 9 collection.  I made the clip using the club volume 5 balloon.


The patterned papers I've used for this project are called Dress Shoppe by Nitwit Collections.

Distress Inks used for this project:  Aged Mahogany, Brushed Corduroy, Bundled Sage, Chipped Sapphire, Frayed Burlap, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Stormy Sky, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain

For My Mom ♥

Hello My Friends!  Today I bring you a card I made for my mom for Mother's Day.  I'm really trying to be ahead of things this year.  I have colored this gorgeous Spring Rain Tilda with Distress Inks and Markers.

I am using papers from Maja's Vintage Romance collection.  I really love this color combination of the purple, ivory and sage-y green.  

All of my die cuts are Magnolia DooHickey Dies.  I found the pretty butterflies on line and cut them by hand.

Distress Inks: Antique Linen, Black Soot, Bundled Sage, Iced Spruce, Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick

Happy 88th Dad

Good Morning Friends!

Hope you have had a great week and a happy Easter.  

Last week for me was CRAZY!  My hubby flew my mom in for my birthday and it turned out to be non stop shopping and dining out.  We did a shrimp boil for Easter dinner (which was FANTASTIC btw), and then it was time for mom to fly back home on Monday.  I went straight from the airport to work.  By the time dinner time came, I had a fever and felt awful but I went to work the next day and Wednesday too.  I just had to call in sick Thursday and Friday but I am recovering nicely.  Unfortunately, I haven't gotten my friend Mick's card out in the post yet (previous post).  Sorry my darling, It will be on it's way tomorrow.  :(

I made this card for my father-in-law for his 88th birthday.  I so love the Magnolia Birthday Cake and Bunting dies from the DooHickey Club volume 5 collection.

Sorry about the wonky pictures.  I had to use my cell phone to take them since the rechargeable  batteries for my camera were dead.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great week, a wonderful day and better tomorrows.
