True Friendship

by on April 26, 2013

Hello there blog friends!   Sorry for the interruption in my appearances here.  You know what they say, when it rains, it pours.  It seems I’ve had to repair every major possession I’ have this month.  It started out with getting son that car, then my car was in the shop, then my ac/heat pump died.  Since it’s hot where I live, I thought  – no problem.  We’ll just stay in the RV until the house system is repaired.  Well the batteries were dead on the RV and although it is plugged into power – nothing works.  So now it is away getting the spa treatment.  All that to say that I’m still smiling.  Sweating, but still smiling.   It has kept me busy though; my craft time is down a little bit but I had this card ready, just waiting for a sentiment when I found the perfect one.  From this month’s release with JustRite Papercrafts I snagged this sentiment from the True Friends Vintage Labels Four set.


My digitally printed paper is from an Etsy shop – By Digital Paper – I loved the roses.  I thought that Spellbinders™ A2 Filigree Delight would be the perfect frame, so I cut that in kraft paper and rimmed it in gold using a Krylon gold pen.  It just so happens that the smaller size of Spellbinders™ Floral Ovals fits perfectly inside the aperature for Filigree Delight.  I topped that off with my sentiment cut using Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals SM.  The card was finished with some silk Mays Arts Ribbon and some delicate little mulberry flowers from IAmRoses.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.  I have actually been stamping and have some things ready for May.  More planned for this week too – I’m outside, but my posts are ready to go.  Hope to see you then.

My Kind of Guy
Nordic Baby
Man of the Hour

It probably won’t be a surprise that I circled right back around to the baby set for my card today – an indulgence in pink!  In my stash I had this white burlap ribbon that reminded me of cross stitch so I removed some of the treads and ran a ribbon through it.  I picked Spellbinders™ Rose Creations and using the two smallest sized dies, created custom colored flowers with more coffee filters (one of my favorite ways to make flowers).  I daubed each layer with Victorian Velvet Distress Inker, dried them with my heat gun then fluffed them up.  I created a card base and added a panel embossed with Spellbinders™ So Trendy M-Bossabilities.  On top of the embossed panel I added Spellbinders™ Enchanted Labels Twenty Eight and Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Eight.


I also made a tag for the scent holder (Spellbinders™ Standard Circles LG and Spellbinders™ Medallion Seven) and used the same burlap ribbon and flowers for a container that holds cotton balls.  A little gift ensemble for baby :-)

Waltzingmouse Stamps – April Releases – Preview Day 3

by on April 17, 2013

Hey there blog friends!!  For those of you who always encourage me to make masculine cards – well, today is the day.  I didn’t even have a blog category for man cards before today, but I put one in so that I can keep track in the archives.  This was fun – I’m using the Man of the Hour set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.  For my card today I created the base using Spellbinders™ 5×7 Matting Basics B.  I popped up a layer using Spellbinders™ 5×7 Matting Basics A and covered it with a panel using Spellbinders™ M-Bossabilities Numbers and Letters.  I simply swiped my inkpad across all the letters to make them stand out.  I topped it with a panel cut using Spellbinders™ Radiant Rectangles.


Ribbon and flowers were added before permanently securing the upper layer, and I was done.  I have to say that for me, it’s hard to be done on a masculine card.  I want to add pearls and I want to add ribbon and I want to add embellishments — well, you get the picture :-)
