Stampin Up Bliss--Just a Note Handstamped Greeting Card

Today's card is a simple layered card. I'm teaching my brother-in-law's girlfriend how to stamp, so we started nice and easy.

I used the flourish from the Bliss stamp set by Stampin Up, and the Just a Note stamp from Hero Arts.

The base of the card is Very Vanilla, layered with pattern paper, black, Bravo Burgundy, and then Very Vanilla again.

The ink is Bravo Burgundy

Here is one final look at our card. Thanks for stopping by!

New Hero Arts Stamps--Sympathy Hand Stamped Greeting Card

Today's card was made with my newest additions to my stamp collection.  I used embossing ink and white embossing powder for the medallion and the sentiment on the front of this card using Stampin Up Night of Navy.  I then stamped the medallion again with Versamark on the background to fill in the space.

Here is a closer photo of the larger embossed medallion.

 Inside the card I simply added a punched border edge.

Stampin Up Textured Quilt Card

Today's card is a quilt card that I made with scraps of my favorite pattern paper from Stampin Up (Bella Rose).  I punched squares and sewed them to a scrap piece of white paper and then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the lattice square embossing folder.

 The base of the card is Kiwi Kiss, and the accent colors are white and Pink Pirouette.
 I used white 1/4" ribbon

 Here is the close up of the stitched and the birthday sentiment.
One more final look at the final card.

Stampin Up Embrace Life Envelope Pocket Flower and Butterfly Card

Hello All!  I  know that I've been away.  My husband's family is slowly working through the grieving process.  His sister is staying with us and his brother will be her on Wednesday to stay until he is also on his feet.  They have come together as a family to support each other during this time, so I ask for continued prayers for healing of their hearts, peace, and strength.

I've been doing some crafting with my sister-in-law and I'm happy to say that I have successfully crocheted a scarf, and two kitchen towels!  YAY!  I have also been playing in my paper room, and my friend Norma has been bringing me some COOL ideas!  Today's is the first I'll show you of the items Norma has shown me how to make.

 Forgive the photos, but the colors are Pretty In Pink, and Whisper White, with Pretty in Pink pattern paper as well.  This is a photo of the card with the pull-put section tucked inside.
 Here is what the card looks like when you pull our the center portion.  The card is made using an envelope and then a piece of cardstock as the pull out section.
 Here is a close up of the texture from the embosslit dies of the butterflies.  I used the stamp set Embrace Live, and used Pretty in Pink ink.
 Here is a close up of the get a little better idea of how dimensional this really is.
One more look at the final card.  Thanks for looking and sticking with me during the past few months!  God Bless!

Oh!  And a peek at the kitchen towels.  I made a pair of these.
