Gingham Easter Lilies

I had to wait to share this until after Easter so that the people receiving them wouldn’t see them ahead of time. Even though Easter is over, you can still make these cards…just change the sentiment to whatever you need. Even though some of these products are from Sale-a-Bration and are no longer available, I know several people that have these items. If you weren’t able to get your hands on them, you can always substitute with products you already have.

Gingham Easter Lilies
I have always loved the look of vellum on cards. So reminiscent of the cards I used to receive as a child from my mother. She knew how much I loved the crinkly sound of it. These cards use the soft, pretty colors from the Gingham Gala 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper Stack (available in the Occasions catalog) as my inspiration. I glued the lilies and sentiment onto the vellum, then placed adhesive onto the back of the vellum on the spots where the lilies and sentiments are. This way, when gluing the vellum layer onto the DSP, no adhesive shows through. I hope everyone liked the colors I chose for them!

Garage Joy Fold Birthday Card

I had been eyeing the Classic Garage suite in the Occasions Catalog on pages 42-43 ever since I first perused the catalog last fall. I wanted it…then talked myself out of it…but I wanted it…then talked myself out of it… You get the drift, right?  Tokyo Drift…hahahaha I’m so punny! (That’s for all my Fast & the Furious fans.) Oh my! I digress! Anyway, I thought the Joy Fold layout would be great for this suite and I was right. The gas can is held down by Dimensionals on the right side of it so the yellow DSP layer with the gears and car on it tuck into the side of it to keep the card closed. Super fun, great masculine card. This one is being sent to a special little guy turning 10 this week. I think he’ll like it.

Vintage Happy Birthday with Ranger UTEP

Vintage Happy Birthday

Hmmm…what is UTEP you might be asking yourself as you scratch your head. Well, let me tell you! It stands for Ultra Thick Embossing Powder and it gives the same effect that Crystal Effects used to! I discovered this awesome product while watching a card making video. The powder has large crystals, so it can be a little messy…just remember to heat from the underside so the crystals don’t fly away! It’s a Ranger product and I was able to find it at Michael’s craft store.

It’s a beautiful effect on the Happy Birthday Thinlits die. I made this card for a certain daughter who loves photography and aquamarine shades. I felt like going with a little vintage feel. I think she liked it.

Proud Mosaic Turnabout

I just discovered the stamp company Concord & 9th and their awesome Turnabout stamps. I could never explain them correctly, so I’m just going to give you the link to them:  https://concordand9th.com/collections/turnabouts

This card features the Mosaic Turnabout that I stamped in Blueberry Bushel, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand. My friend had shared this photo of birds online and I was inspired by the beautiful colors and just had to make a card with them. And before you comment, yes. I know they are photo-shopped, but it doesn’t matter. Color inspiration can come from anywhere!

Blueberry Cajun Espresso Sand InspirationBlueberry Cajun Espresso Sand
I adore this bold sentiment, which is from the Stampin’ Up Annual catalog set called Friendly Expressions. It is perfect with the Layered Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits and I didn’t feel any other embellishments were necessary. I popped the circle layers up on Dimensionals for added effect. I hope a certain someone living on a certain ship likes it!

Daffodil Delight Sympathy

It’s never enjoyable when you need a sympathy card. And, unfortunately, it’s been very difficult these past couple weeks as I’ve lost one family member and two church family members, along with a friend who also lost a close family member. I’ve had several cards to make, including this one that I made for my mother. She loves yellow and I thought this would bring a little love in her mailbox.

Zoey is Koalafied to Party!

Back in January, my niece and her family were able to visit for a couple days as they traversed the country during a move from a hilly state to a mountainous state. My great niece, Zoey, had me read a book to her several times while visiting me. The main character in the book was a big-eyed owl. I had every intention of making her an owl card. That is, until I got Lawn Fawn’s Party Koala. And it’s so stinkin’ cute!
