Jar of Love

Wowzers! Today is a windy day. All the surrounding cities are without power, but mine. The lights did flicker but didn't go out. We rarely loose electricity in my town. I have a card class tomorrow so I have lots of card prep to do today. Good thing I don't need electricity to do it.

I love the Jar of Love stamp set. I'm using it at tomorrows class for a Mother's Day card. We made this card at my February card-making class. One of the ladies stamped her bow in daffodil delight because she said bows should never be black. I never thought of that, but I sort of agree with her so I made more of these cards with daffodil delight or tempting turquoise bows. I like how they turned out better, but used them before I got a picture.

My monthly card-making class is tomorrow so I better get going on the card prep.

Rain, Rain Go Away

Goodness, this rain is so depressing. It just keeps raining. We might get one nice day and then BAM, it's raining again. I can't wait for summer. Or spring. Maybe seeing some flowers will make it not seem so dreary.

This card is one we made at my month card-making class. We were not writing thank yous to Mother Nature when we made this card. Although, we are thankful for the rain, the abundance is a bit much.

This stamp set is one that you could get free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. I love the Thank You in big cursive letters.

Bronze Embossing!

*I wrote this post a while back and forgot to publish it*

I love everything about the Affectionately Yours Suite! The DSP is so pretty. There are 2 sheets in this pack that have copper in it and it's so beautiful. There are 2 embossing folders and washi tape that match this suite. I bought the copper thread and copper embossing powder to go along. I have so many ideas for this set...all I need is more time.

We made this card at one of my monthly classes. I let the ladies pick their coordinating colors and sentiment. They all turned out very nice.

Candy Cane Christmas

I had my December card-making class this weekend and had 10 attendees. Lovely group of ladies. I made the mistake of going out to dinner the night before instead of getting those last minute things stuffing the envelopes with each project and getting the framelits out of their packs so my guests knew which ones to use. Both of these were small jobs that would not have taken me long to do, but I figured I would have time in the morning. I didn't and then once my ladies started arriving, I got easily side-tracked and frazzled. Felt like forever before I finally got my act together. Learned my lesson, won't let that happen again.

This card has a belly band that holds it closed. I got the idea from a card I saw of Mary Deatherage. I used the Candy Cane Lane DSP and cut out lots of options.

We used the Candy Cane Lane washi tape for decorating the inside.

I love this card and made a bunch.

Cute little Bella

Today is a snow day! Kids are happy. Mama, not so much. I have a workshop on Saturday and lots to do. I still have 2 cards to plan, cutting of supplies, and getting everything together for the making of said cards. Oh, and clean house. I have a feeling school will be cancelled tomorrow too. The snow will melt and then it will get cold again and everything will freeze. Happens every year.

This cute little card was made at one of my workshops. Isn't this doggy so cute?!?!

 I gave 2 options for colors. We used Blender Pens and the ink pads to color in the cupcake and heart.

Stamp Set:  Bella & Friends
Cardstock:  Basic Grey, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White

Quick and Easy Card

Good day! It's a dreary morning, the kind where you curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee and a good book. Sounds lovely. Not gonna happen, I have a bathroom to clean, work to do, and a kid who doesn't have school today. In fact, the kids want to go to the zoo later. In this weather? It's actually the best time to go to the zoo in my opinion. No one is there and the animals are out.

I was making a "flyer" for a bazaar I was doing and needed some cute cards to show examples of some we make at my workshops. I saw this on Pinterest (by Judy May) and decided to go with it. I didn't change much because I was short on time. The cake has Wink of Stella on the frosting and candles, to add a little shimmer. Very quick and easy.

Fairy Celebration

Hi! Hope you are all having a good day! I've gotten so much accomplished this week. I got the house cleaned and lots of crafting done for the Holiday Bazaar next month. I had to place an order a couple days ago because I ran out of ribbon to finish up my tags/boxes. Of course, I had to order other stuff too. So when my favorite man dressed in brown drops it off, I have to stay focused and finish up what I have before I start others. 

This card was a card we made at my September workshop. I love this stamp set, although I had a tough time figuring a layout for the card. The inside is stamped "May your wish come true." We used the blender pens to color the fairy in and then we used Dazzling Diamonds to add some sparkle. Because fairies sparkle, right?
