Swirly Banner Birthday

I decided to make a card with some soon-to-be retired colors. Wisteria Wonder is one that I will truly miss. I thought it would be lovely with the Sweet Sugarplum and I threw in a pop of Wild Wasabi for the leaves. All three of these colors will be joining the crafting world’s great beyond on May 31st. Be sure to stock up on cardstock and ink right away, as it’s while supplies last.

Eclectic Wisteria Twist

The more I use Lemon Lime Twist, the more I love it…and it is so pretty paired with the soft Wisteria Wonder. This card features Designer Series Paper from the first Sale-a-Bration brochure, which is currently available.  The stamp set is from the Sale-a-Bration second release, which will be available for you to earn from February 16 – March 31. It is such a versatile set with all the background pieces. Definitely a must-have!

Perfect Plum Painted Harvest

I can’t get enough of this Painted Harvest stamp set! It is so beyond versatile and I really like using them as my own “Designer Series Paper” for backgrounds. Since the last card I made using this set was super bright, I thought I’d tone it down a little and focus on purples. So happy with this!

Easter Blessings

I recently held a card making class for some super fun ladies at my church. We made two cards – one Easter and one Birthday. Today I’ll be sharing the Easter card. I can’t believe it’s almost upon us! I will admit that I struggled with this card. I knew I wanted to use the floral cross from the set Blessed by God and the Easter sentiment inside from the current Occasions Catalog called Suite Sentiments. My dear Hunter came to my rescue for everything else – she picked out the color combo, layout, embossing folder and embellishment!

Wisteria Weather and Reminiscing

We’ve been getting hit with so much rain today, that I thought it would be the perfect time to use my Weather Together set with the matching dies. I just love thunderstorms. I remember when the children were itty bitties and scared of the thunder. I would take them outside onto the porch, all of them trying to sit on my lap, and we’d sit there in silence together…watching the lightning and listening to thunder. Bittersweet memories…

Say Goodbye to the Purple Monkeys!

My stepdaughter Shanice asked me to make cards for her children’s teachers. She requested purple monkeys with glitter – hilarious! I had so much fun making these cards. I am sad to see all 3 of these stamp sets retire in 2 days. I decided to go with a lighter shade of purple to coordinate effortlessly with the retired 2013-2015 In Colors. I like to call them the “Ice Cream Colors”. So yummy!  Look closely and you will see the Dazzling Diamonds glitter on each little monkey’s tummy.  So darling! I hope Shanice agrees!
