Hello friends! I don't know about you but making a masculine card for the guys in your life can be tough. I know I love to make fancy flowers and use pretty embellishments on my cards. So finding supplies that make creating cards for guys can be kind of hard. Today I want to share with you a fun card I created using supplies from the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just For Men. It's a great collection! Here is my card..... To create this card base is so easy. Just cut the base to 10 x 7" and fold in half. This creates a 5 x 7" card. Using your scissors, cut the edges along the fold to resemble a tool box. I used a window punch to make it look like a handle. Then I used the 6x6" Checkerplate Embossing folder on just the front of the card. That means that I positioned the card front upside down in the embossing folder and ran it thru the machine. Then I added the pocket with the cute paper from the Just For Men 6x6" paper pad - Brights collection. The die cut words can be tricky to glue down so I covered the back of my red cardstock with StickIt! and then die cut using the Just for Men - Happy Birthday die. I added some gold brads. Here is a closer look........ The tools were die cut and embossed from Kraft cardstock using the Just For Men - Tool set dies. The tools come in pieces so you could cut them out of different paper if you want too. I think this card turned out great! We are giving it to my hubby for his birthday next month. You can check out all the fun products in the whole Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just for Men on the Crafter's Companion website. I will have more posts later in the week! Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello friends. Wow I am really sorry I haven't been posting alittle more this summer. It's been a really fun summer so far. We have been spending time together as a family and that is very precious to me. The hubby is on vacation, all of my girls are home and the weather is beautiful - hot but beautiful summer weather! I have found some time to work - during the very hottest part of the day- so I do have a few projects to share with you in the coming days. Here is a project I created using some really cute supplies from Tonic Studios! Do you love fairies? If you do, then the Fairy Reflections range will be perfect for you. This range includes stamps, dies and papers with some of the cutest fairies! Here is my card.... This card measures 5 x 7″. So to begin, I cut a piece of rose cardstock to 7 x 10″, scored it at 5″ to create the base of the card. Next I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4″ and ran that thru my Tangerine machine using the A4 Embossing Folder – Martha. I always think a little extra texture helps to make a good card – Great! Then I die cut a piece of rose cardstock using the outside edge die from the Sew Pretty – Cherish The Moment set . I also die cut the sentiment piece from the Fairy Reflection – Wishes Illustrated paper pack using the other edge piece included in the Sew Pretty – Cherish the Moment set. Each of these Sew Pretty dies gave my layered pieces that “sewing” look that I think is really nice. I also die cut the fairy from the Fairy Reflection – Wishes Illustrated Paper Pack using the Fairy Reflection – Camellia die set. I just used the outer die to cut her out. There is also an inner, more detailed die included in the set plus there is a stamp, too! Here is a closer look at my card…… I think this card would be perfect for that special little girl in your life, don’t you? Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies: Tonic Studios USA Dies: 1228E Sew Pretty – Cherish the Moment; 1202E Fairy Reflections – Camellia Embossing Folder: 515E A4 Embossing Folder – Martha Paper: 1055E Fairy Reflections Wishes Illustrated...

Hello friends! Hope you are enjoying this wonderful summer weather. I know I have been out in the sunshine just reading a book or taking a walk and it's been fantastic. Sometimes you just have to take time for yourself, you know? Today is Wednesday so that means I have a Heartfelt Creations project to share with you today. I created a card with a matching box using the Botanic Orchid Collection. I love the soft colors in the collection and I used that color scheme to create this project. Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Luggage and Tags Die, HCD1-745 Dove Blender Kit, 241159 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401 Scor-Pal Measuring & Scoring Board, 173842 Botanic Orchid Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3741 Regal Hummingbird Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3742 Botanic Orchid Bouquet Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3743 Botanic Window Die, HCD1-7100 Botanic Orchid Die, HCD1-7101 Regal Hummingbird Die, HCD1-7102 Botanic Orchid Paper Collection, HCDP1-267 Instructions Other products: White, Green & Sky Blue cardstock; Soft Sky, So Saffron & Pear Pizzaz Ink pads (Stampin Up); Scor-Tape; pearls, 3d foam squares, sponge; scalloped edge punch; pearl stickers, diamond stickles, blender pen Watch this video https://youtu.be/SRyuiBrFluo to learn how to create and shape the Botanic Orchid flowers. Instructions: To create the gift box, I used the 2-5-7-10 Box Tutorial found here on Splitcoast Stampers with a few changes. I used a piece of white cardstock and once I did the scoring, I stamped the Orchid Accent stamp (from Regal Hummingbird stamp set) randomly using the sky blue ink. Instead of using the top flap as indicated in the instructions (I just cut the whole section off), I cut a piece of patterned paper to 3" x 4" and scored it at 2". Then I used a scalloped edge punch along the bottom of both sides. I used a hole punch to punch two holes to thread some ribbon through. Place the this top portion on the box and squeeze it close. Punch the two holes into the box tops and then adhere this top to the back portion of the box only. Once you thread the ribbon thru the holes you punched, this will close the bag. To create the card, cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" to create an A2 size card. Cut a piece of patterned paper from the collection... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Today I have a fun project to share with you using Tonic Studios dies. For today's card I used the Sew Pretty- Have a Beautiful Day Circle Frame and Pinhole Square Layering Die Set. I love to create a square card so using these dies was so much fun for me! To begin this card, I cut a piece of 8 1/2 x 11″ Kraft cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2″. I scored it at 5 1/4″. Before I folded this base, I used the #525E Sew Pretty Pinhole Nesting Square Layering die set. I found the size die in the set that would be just around the outside of my card and ran it thru myTangerine Machine. I cut the dotted paper to 4 1/2″ square and then the flower print paper is cut to a 4 1/4″ square. I used the Pinhole Nesting square die on the flower print square, too! I love the look it gives. I die cut the #1227E Sew Pretty Have A Beautiful Day die from burgundy cardstock and the sentiment is die cut from cream cardstock. I also die cut a scalloped oval from the #485E Mixed Oval Layering die set. I added the seam binding bow to complete the card. Here is a closer look at my card.

I know I do and I get kinda sad when it's too cold outside to wear them. I am happy to report that while it's now toasty warm here in Missouri, it is warm enough for flip flops! Here are my cards! For this first card, I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers, waterbrush and watercolor paper. I stamped the Flowery Flip Flop image all over the watercolor paper using Versamark ink. Then I dusted the images with white embossing powder and heat set it. Then using the Sparkle Markers, I waterbrushed a rainbow effect all over. I cut the panel to 4 x 5 1/4" and layered it onto a white cardstock base. I embossed the Sandy Toes sentiment onto some sky blue cardstock and cut it out. I adhered the sentiment to the card using 3d foam squares. Here is a closer look..... For this next card, I stamped the Flowery Flip Flips onto watercolor paper using Timber Brown Staz-on ink.

Hello friends! I know this is a bit late to share but I just realized that I didn't share the Mother's Day card I created for my mom. I had alot of fun creating this card. I used alot of stuff that has been in my stash for awhile. The patterned paper is from the Garden Journal Collection from Bo Bunny. The die behind the flowers is Heirloom Oval (Spellbinders). I used the Botanical Rose die set from Heartfelt Creations for the base of my flowers and for the leaves. The middle of the largest flower is the Bitty Blossoms set. I added some of the smaller roses in the Bitty Blossoms set too. I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and sponged it on some of my roses and around the edges of my paper and die cut. I added the "I heart you" sticker to complete this card. Here is a close up....... To help you, I am including links to the products I used in this blog post. These are affiliate links, which means that I receive a small amount of commission at no extra cost to you. These direct links make it easier for you to make your online purchases.

Hello friends! Hope you are having a great Monday so far. I have a bit of a family update but I promise there is a new project in this blog post! This past weekend was so much fun for our whole family. My oldest daughter graduated from college with her Bachelors degree in Music Education. Right now she is looking for a job but we are keeping a positive attitude and know that whoever hires her will be blessed with a great teacher!

Here is a card I created for her using the Sara Davies Signature Collection - Floral Delight plus some other Crafter's Companion stuff from other collections! The base of this card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 square. I used Kraft cardstock for the base. I don't know why but Kraft is just my go-to cardstock! The papers are from the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Floral Delight 6x6 paper pad. I even cut out the roses from another sheet of the same patterned paper. The sentiment is from the Vintage Floral Collection EZMount Stamp Set - Verses. The die is the Downton Abbey Metal Die - Ornate Mirror.

Hello friends! Today I have an elegant card to share with you using the April Creative Cafe' Kit - Petticoat Fashion plus the add-on stamp set, The Greatest Gift Of Life from The Rubber Cafe'. I really love the color combo of pink with silver/gray so I went with the very pretty patterned paper included in this kit to make my card. This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" or A2 size. I cut the gray textured cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11" and folded it at 5 1/2" to create the base of the card. I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4" and the pink/silver doily paper to 3 3/4 x 5" and adhered that to the white layer. I die cut a small doily from the gray cardstock to layer the sentiment on. Here is how I did the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock using gray ink. Stamp one of the swirls in the stamp set around the sentiment using black ink. I started at the top and stamped around my sentiment. Then using scissors trim around the swirls and layer this onto the card! I added the gray seam binding to finish this card. Love theses colors!! Thanks for stopping by today!

Take a walk along the edge of the deep blue sea, feel the warm sand between your toes and breathe in the salty air. Balmy breezes tousle your hair and toy with the exotic hibiscus flower behind your ear as you stoop to snatch a lustrous seashell that has been swept onto the beach with the incoming tide. Cares and worries melt away because life really is better at the seaside. The cool, crystal clear water lapping at the shoreline beckons you and you cannot resist the sudden urge to dive right in. Before you know it you have been submerged into a magical underwater world where you find yourself settling on a jagged reef surrounded with burnished coral, glassy seashells and mystical sea creatures more beautiful than your imagination could ever conjure. A peek behind the coral and waltzing seaweed finds you nose to nose with a school of fish gliding every so gently with their long, graceful flowing tails and glistening scales decorated with an abundance of shimmering and alluring colors.

Hello friends! How are you doing on this fine Monday? I have gotten off to a slow start but I am finally getting things done. Don't forget to comment on my Pocket Pen Pal post for a chance to win the Pocket Page I created. You can find that blog post HERE. Now on to today's project. I created a Center Step card for my daughter's birthday last week and wanted to share it with you after her birthday! Here is my card...... To create this card, I used the tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers. The beautiful flowers are from the Sheena Douglass Perfect Partners - Wild Rose-Briar stamp set. This stamp set has a matching die, too. This stamp set is in the Perfect Partners line from Crafter's Companion. I stamped the images onto some watercolor paper using Jet Black Staz-on. Then using the Spectrum Noir Vintage Sparkle Markers - Vintage Tea - Biscuit; Vintage Home - Hearthside; Vintage Bloom - Sage; Falling Leaves - Smoked Quartz; Clear Overlay - I colored the flowers and stem then blended the colors using the Clear Overlay. When you use watercolor paper with the Sparkle Markers, you can move the color around just like you were watercoloring but you get the most beautiful shimmer! It is so awesome! For the bottom of the card, I used the Edge'ables Only Words - Just For You die. I thought that went perfect with this type of card. It can be hard to add a sentiment to this card, so the edge dies work perfectly. My daughter loved the card so Yeah for me! LOL Thanks for stopping by today! Check back tomorrow for a new card using supplies from The Rubber Cafe'. Continue reading
