Blended Bloom Tag Card -- Just Because

This card is brighter, cleaner in real life.  It was popular at my Card Buffet - maybe because it's also pretty easy and an all-occasion card.

Sending Love and Sympathy

I knew that a friend's mom's time was near when I made this card.  In the midst of her grief, she thanked me for the beautiful card and asked if I had made it.  It reminds me to never underestimate the power of a handmade gift and kind words.

The Love & Sympathy, 2013-2015 In Colors (baked brown sugar and crisp cantaloupe used on this card) and Lullaby dsp all are retiring June 2.

Woodgrain Valentine

This is the card I made for my sweet Valentine.

I punched a heart from copy paper and used it as a stencil and sponged around the outside.  It kind of reminds me of a heart carved in a tree.

Celebrate Today || Mom's Birthday Card

This is the card I made for my Mom's 81st birthday.  My parents are snowbirds (flee to Florida to avoid Ohio winters).  I mailed this card to her in plenty of time to receive it before her birthday.  They are having major mail forwarding issues this winter so the card came back to me.  It finally made it down to her - about 3 weeks late.  Oh well - I hope it was worth the wait.

Stamp Pads: real red, calypso coral, crisp cantaloupe, momento tuxedo black

Ribbon Heart Valentine's Day Card

My parents moved this winter.  In the spirit of down-sizing, my mom gave me all of her ribbon.  7 bins of ribbon!  When I was choosing a Valentine's card to send to family, I remembered seeing this one on Pinterest and I have a LOT of ribbon.  And it was a lot of fun to make.

I used my Heart Framelits to cut the heart in the white card stock.  I took another piece of card stock (I think 2.75" x 2.75") and applied adhesive liberally.  I layer ribbon across it.  You don't have to trim the ribbon ends even with the card stock since it won't show, but because I am the way I am, I trimmed all the ends nice and even.


Stamp Set:  Good Greetings
Card Stock:   whisper white
Stamp Pad:  jet black stazon
Other:  black gingham ribbon, assorted pink and red ribbons, hearts collection framelits, big shot, dimensionals.
