Pain Stinks

The Foxy Friends stamp set and coordinating Fox Builder punch are so versatile and makes it easy to put together animals other than just foxes. A gentleman at my church has missed the past two Sunday services because he is experiencing bad hip and leg pain. I want him to know he’s missed and that I’m praying for complete healing. I thought a fun card would give him a chuckle, so the Here for You set saves the day with the perfect sentiment for a skunk! It’s hard to tell, but both the skunk and sentiment banners are popped up on dimensionals.  The inside of the card is stamped with the sentiment, “So sorry you’re hurting. Hang in there.”

To My Amazing Son

I had a wonderful time visiting my son this past Memorial weekend. He left the base and stayed with his sister and me at our hotel. It was a much needed vacation for all of us and it went by way too fast. I love to sneak a card into his suitcase any time he visits and I completely forgot to make him a card before his sister and I hit the road for the 14 hour trip. I know he’ll still appreciate it, though. By the time this blog post is published, he should have already received it.

To My Amazing Son

I made a fun Z-fold card and decided to rough up the edges a little.  Even though I have lots of awesome new products, these work together quite nicely for a classic masculine card.

Bermuda Dragonfly

For this month’s stamping club card, I knew I wanted to use my favorite Dragonfly Dreams bundle, but I wanted to give it a pop of color. Bermuda Bay works beautifully with the set and the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper. Hunter mentioned to me last night that I seem to be leaning more towards sequins these days instead of ribbon. I think she’s right – I love the sparkle of the sequins, but they do not detract from the main image on the card. These items are available now in the Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog (click on the link below).

Falling for Dragonfly Dreams

I finally received my Stampin’ Up preorder with the Dragonfly Dreams bundle! Anyone that knows me knows I LOVE DRAGONFLIES!  In fact, that is the theme in my living room and I even have a framed display of 4 real ones (purchased prior to me becoming vegan, LOL). As you can guess, the second I saw there were dragonflies in the 2017 Occasions catalog, it was over! I also bought the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper. It’s marketed in the catalog with the wedding themed items, but it is soft and beautiful with the dragonflies. I have fallen in love with it!

I stamped the detailed dragonfly stamp in Versamark on Vellum cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After die cutting it out, the wings curled up a LOT. So I decided to use the dragonfly framelit die to cut a matching one out to glue behind the vellum. The large dragonflies and the sentiment banners are popped up with dimensionals. This makes my heart happy!

Foxy Scrap-a-Thon

Today I am at a super fun Scrap-a-Thon, helping to raise money for the Baroda Queen Committee by hosting a make-n-take.  I wanted a fun card that is quick and easy so everyone gets a chance to stop by my table today to make one.  Isn’t he the cutest little fox you’ve ever seen?  Adorable on the 3.5″ x 5″ notecard…and don’t forget the little mushroom on the envelope!

Peachy Prayers

Two friends of mine recently underwent surgery. I wanted to make them cards and I knew that Peekaboo Peach was the color I wanted. I just love the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper and thought the smaller peach background was lovely. I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum to maximize the sentiment.  The Peekaboo Peach enamel shape heart was perfect.  Using the 3.5″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecards just adds to the adorableness.  Hugs and prayers to my invalids!
