Popping in with a few cards!

Hello there!  I hope you all remember me.  😄  It's been a while since I shared cards with you, and I've missed doing it!

I have just a few minutes before I get ready for church, so this will be short and sweet.

The first card was a custom design for my church friend's friend who was planning to retire from her job.  She loves dragonflies, and I dug into my stash for this older Stampin' Up set, Measure of a Life.  I'm excited to have a chance to use it, as it mostly sits patiently on my studio shelf, waiting for ink.  The Bible verse written around the dragonfly is from Ecclesiastes 3:1: 

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.

That seems like a good sentiment for someone who is retiring. 😁


The next card looks like a Valentine, but I used it as a loving birthday card for my mom, who loves the colors of black and white.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Bloomin' Hearts Thinlit die set, in black, and added some gems to some of the flowers.  The 'xoxo' sentiment comes from SU's Bloomin' Love coordinating stamp set.


And the last card is masculine, with a collage style used (mainly because I'm trying to use up some of my prepackaged die cuts and stickers).  I have two stamped items on here:  the leafy branch from SU's Le Jardin Botanique and a postmark image from Inspired By Stamping's Vintage Postcards set.


Thanks so much for coming by today.  It was a joy to share with you!  God bless you!

Help! I lost my Pinterest Pin It / Save It button on my pics!

Hey guys,

I lost my Save It / Pin It buttons that would appear on each photo on my blog, when you hover over them with your mouse.

I don't know what I did to delete that, and I'm having trouble getting it back.
HTML is not a language I understand!  LOL

Anyone able to help walk me through this?

Thank you!!

Hello, Fall and Halloween

Hello friends!

I've got a handful of fall and Halloween cards to share with you today.  I listed the primary supplies beneath each photo.  My favorite in this line up is the very last card.  I'm crushing on those soft, neutral tones for autumn, and honestly all year-round.


Inkadinkado Pedestal Pumpkins; Kelly Creates Celebration Tracing sentiment; Sizzix Sweet & Donut Thinlit die ('hello'); Martha Stewart Hydrangea Punch; Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Accents flower punch, window die


Inkadinkado All Hallow's Eve pumpkin stamp; Papertrey Ink Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical Die; acorn die - Stampin' Up!; My Favorite Things Falling Leaves dies L'il Inker Designs Stitched Rectangle dies


Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Parade #8 die and stamp set; My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Rectangle dies; Spellbinders Classic Rectangles Small dies; maple leaf punches (?)


Papertrey Ink Think Big Favorites #5 congrats stamp; Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves dies; Baked Brown Sugar twine - Stampin' Up!


Stampin' Up! Wicked Cool stamp set (spider web in background); all other supplies gifted to me


Sizzix / Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves die; Stampin' Up! Hardwood background stamp; Papertrey Ink Year Round Puns sentiment stamp; L'il Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles  dies

I just had a tooth extracted a couple of days ago.  One of the roots was fractured about 2/3 of the way down, and an endodontist said it was not worth saving.  Had a dentist and oral surgeon look at it too and ultimately the tooth just needed to come out.  Believe me, I tried to keep it, even if it meant root canal and a crown.  After this healing is finished, I will be glad to have that pain out of the way.  It bothered me for 10 years!

Hope you all are doing well, and thank you for coming by. 😁  God bless you!

Square Jack o'Lantern

Hi there! 

Here's another Halloween card coming at ya.  This one has a square jack o'lantern face:  something different, as my Mom-Mom used to say.  It is an image from a sheet of Halloween themed die cuts, maker unknown (a Tuesday Morning store find).  I used up a scrap of burlap, with the edges torn (it looks like a place mat from the 1970s!), and matted that happy jack on it and a patterned paper circle.  Basically, I was trying to use up scraps that day.  Ha!





The square jack is only one of the images from that die cut sheet.  The hat and sentiment are also from there.  So, there is no stamping on this card!

Can you see the black lace I added under the sentiment?


Thanks so much for your visit today!  Be blessed!

Spider CASE

Hello there!

I CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) this card I spied years ago in a Paper Crafts Magazine.


It was easy to make.  The card base is black, lined in white inside.  I cut a banner from kraft cardstock, and repeatedly stamped a small spider web from Stampin' Up!'s Wicked Cool set.  The sentiment (from Inkadinkado's All Hallow's Eve) was stamped on a scrap of pumpkin orange cardstock, and added on top of the spider web banner, using foam adhesive underneath.   Before adhering, though, I cut some black twine and glued it down in a wavy pattern for my glittery spider (made with a Martha Stewart punch and black glitter cardstock). The spider also has some foam adhesive beneath it.

I did add little touches by the sentiment:  one black tiny sequin, and a clear button that was doused in glue and covered in black glitter. 

Thanks so much for coming by today.  I really appreciate your visit! 😊

Fancy Halloween

Hello!  I've been sparingly using this elegant Halloween paper for years now.  It's from Stampin' Up!, but I don't recall the name of the suite it came from.

On this card, I used a pumpkin-shaped sticker from Jolee's Boutique and added it to a chevron-stamped die-cut circle, along with a few sequins in black and clear.


There's a strip of black glitter cardstock along the left edge...


...and I stamped a tiny Halloween sentiment from Stampin' Up! Holiday Home on the chevron circle, bending it slightly around the curve.  A little tulle bow was attached below the pumpkin sticker with some Multi Matte Medium glue by Ranger. 


Thanks for dropping by today.  I hope your summer is going well! 
See you again. 😊

Trick or Treat & A Happy Pumpkin

Hello friends! 
Halloween cards in July?  Sure, why not!  I made two cards with this elegant black and orange patterned paper from Stampin' Up!.


I get lots of mileage out of this kitty die from Memory Box (Large Sitting Cat).  I paired this black cat with gold glitter paper, gold sequins, and a trick or treat paper die cut (maker unknown).

There are also some stars - one glittered, one shiny gold.

How cute is this Jolee's Boutique pumpkin sticker?  I placed him on black cardstock, then made a shaker pocket using clear acetate, gold and black sequins, and used my sewing machine to stitch 'round and 'round to seal it all in.

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s All Holidays stamp set.

Thanks for your visit today, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!  God bless you!
