You Had The Power All Along My Dear and Weekly Inspiration

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Ladies Shoe and Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles - see full supply list on

Yes, we make cards. Yes, we gingerly lay a postage stamp on them and send them off with good wishes tucked inside the envelope.  Have you ever stopped to think about what that does for someone?  I love to send Birthday Cards and Holiday cards because it holds up a heartfelt tradition, but by far my favorite card to send is one that lifts someone just when they need it.  Any card you send is a triumph to someone.   This actually goes out to a friend of mine who needs some sweet encouragement.  I believe in her and want her to believe in herself.  The inspiration for my card came from a set of red shoes that a friend on Instagram shows from time to time.  I got to thinking about the red shoes from the Wizard of Oz and how Glenda told Dorothy that she had the power all along.  Light bulb!  Ladies Shoe Die!  I pulled it out and made a card with glittery red slippers :-) Along with the Hemstitch Rectangles, it is a simple, simple card :-)

    Hello Becca,
    Love your red shoes they are gorgeous, but there’s no place like Home, and the team’s cards are wonderful as well.
    I have a friend who often sends me cards for no reason, you are correct – they are uplifting and spread happiness.

    Loving all the projects today, but especially the “red shoe” card. ???? Perfect sentiment to help your friend believe in herself. ??
    I am wondering if the sentiment is a stamp, or a digit saying? I think it would work for many of us in our projects of encouragement.
    Thank you so much for sharing!!!!ReplyCancel

    BEAUTIFUL BECCA!!!! Yes, your ruby red slippers look WONDERFUL! I too think of how others feel when they receive my cards, & get the most joy out of sending cards that give others a lift! Seems there are so many things that get people down. Life sometimes is just HARD! And harder for some than others…. It is nice to be a source of comfort & strength to others! A little ray of hope with my cards! ;) SUPER WORK LADIES!!! You have me wanting ALL of Becca’s Dies! LOL THANK GOODNESS, Christmas is coming! Off to create a Thank You card today! ;)ReplyCancel

    Becca, you are brilliant. You are a rare and precious gem. This card. Wow. Just WOW. This card is going to bring tears to the eyes of your friend and she is going to feel very loved and supported by you.ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca, this card touched my heart. My sister’s birthday is October 9th and I had packed all of my card making stuff with the exception of the shoe die. Perfect card for a perfect sister.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you, Sara PS Love the red!ReplyCancel

    Red is my favorite color though I rarely use it on cards except at Christmas. Those red shoes are to die for!! I love, love, love this card. The hemstitch border is my favorite new die.ReplyCancel

    Such beautiful cards all of them. I especially like the red shoes Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Sandra SmithOctober 3, 2017 - 8:28 pm

    Each card is lovely but I truly appreciate the sentiment of your card, Becca. I remember my Grandma, who was very old fashioned, tell I ng she wanted a pair of red shoes. She was 70 at the time. Red shoes make me smile!ReplyCancel

  • Teresa M HornerOctober 3, 2017 - 10:43 pm

    This is really an amazing card and how fun that you made Ruby slippers with this cute little die. Love it!!ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card. You “hit the nail on the head” with this one!
    You couldn’t have picked a better message. This sentiment is so very true. This is just what I needed to see today. I need to make 3 cards for dear friends who are battling stage 4 cancer–knowing their time on this earth is very limited. I was feeling a little down because I know I won’t have them here with me much longer. This card helped me, now I feel I can make them something that will let them know they are not along in their journey.ReplyCancel

  • the kardladyOctober 4, 2017 - 10:02 am

    It made me smile too Becca – it’s beautiful and I love the encouraging words! I have an original card on my website that I love sending to my friends – it’s a slim black dress with an hourglass figure on a hanger – the encouragement “We still got it – it’s just a matter of remembering where we put it! It’s the classic ones like these customers won’t allow me to retire! Thank you again for sharing your favorites! HugsReplyCancel

  • Miss Hilary CoxOctober 4, 2017 - 2:50 pm

    I have the shoe Die and often use this Die as it’s one of my favourite. Your card is beautiful lovely sentiment. I use nail accessories for the middle of the bows they are tiny just right size to go onto the bowsReplyCancel
