Featured Stamper Inspired Greeting Card

One of the weekly challenges over at SCS is the Featured Stamper.  This week the featured stamper is one of my favorite paper crafters and I had to participate.  Westie2 otherwise known as Jackie from Rockwell Designs is the Featured Stamper for FS294.  The card from her gallery that inspired me was this one.
Here is my card in honor of Jackie.
 The base of my card is Very Vanilla and I used two different pattern papers and a strip of black cardstock behind my rose from Fifth Avenue Floral.
 I used Prima leaves behind my rose and pop dots to adhere the rose.

Congratulations on being featured Jackie!  Keep the cards coming!  They are BEAUTIFUL!

Butterfly Paint Chip Greeting Cards

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing with you my new fast and favorite cards.  I recycled paint chip samples that didn't make it to my house walls, and I used them to make some simple thank you cards.

Here is the set of four I made.  I used card bases of Pink Pirouette, YoYo Yellow, Bashful Blue, and Green Galore. 
I punched a butterfly shape out of each color on the swatch and accented them with pearl flatbacks
I used the thank you stamp from Because I Care and stamped thank you along side each butterfly

What do you think?

Thanks for looking and happy stamping!

Fall Grid Greeting Card

Happy Saturday everyone!  I was able to play a bit in my room and make a fall themed card.  I have always liked the look of grids on cards, but this is the first time I've made a grid card.
 The colors are difficult to see in the photos. The base is Old Olive and layered are Chocolate Chip, Bravo Burgundy, and Very Vanilla.  I used stamps from Little Layers II, Lovely as a Tree, and Grateful Greetings.
I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Bravo Bugundy, and Old Olive ink
The ribbon is 1/4 inch Old Olive

It's hard to tell, but there is a Chocolate Chip scallop layer on top of the Bravo Burgundy layer of the sentiment that is  on top of the ribbon.

This is the inside sentiment.

One final look at the card.
Have a great day!

New Greeting Cards and etsy Card Listings

Hello All!  It's certainly been a while since I've posted. 
As some of you know, we had quite a few of my husband's family staying with us since February, and that meant that my time in my scrap/craft room was limited since someone was also using it as a bedroom! 
I'm happy to say that my hubby's family has gotten on their feet and gotten a place of their own with their brand new beautiful baby! 
I've been able to get my craft room organized a bit and was able to take some photos of cards to post while I get my creative juices flowing again.  Here are the cards.  All of them can be found listed in my Etsy store.

I'll be busy in my room over the next few days and weeks, so I'm hoping to get back into my blogggig routine.
