You are so loved card

Again, I seem to not be having much luck in the light department these days, so I'm sorry for the less than stellar photography on my card today.  But I wanted to share it all the same. :)

I made it with the beautiful True Friend collection by Fancy Pants Designs.  I just think it's so darling, and the orange and teal combo is another fav. of mine.  The front of the card is essential just two brad cards that I layered together, over some embossed patterned paper from the 6x6 pad.  Then I used some die cuts scallops underneath them.  

This detail picture shows the wink of stella glitter pen than I added over the heart on the brag card.  It's a simple, and sweet addition in person.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Holidays

As I said in my last post, I don't think it's ever too early to get started on your Christmas Cards.  I am miserable about actually sending them out however!  I really intend to do better on that this year :)

I created this card with the Fancy Pants Designs line Oh, Deer! I again used the amazing silver foil paper on this card and both die cut it, and used some old decorative edge scissors too.  Yes, I've still got those scissors and use them quite frequently ;)

How cute are those sequin berries too?  They make the most adorable little pot of sequins and I find myself adding them to all my projects these days.

As always, thanks for popping by :)

For starters, It's never too early to start on your Christmas cards, right?? :)

I just love the Fancy Pants line Oh, Deer!  It's too adorable.  One of my favourite things are the 
Brag cards.  I used two of them together and it made this card come together so quickly.  

We are currently having a storm in my neck of the woods and trying to get decent pictures it driving me batty.   So these are a bit muddy and off :(

I used my wink of stella glitter pen over the Believe, and used a border punch to get a metallic scallop that I sewed in place between the two brag cards.

The second picture shows the dimension of the card, and how the light catches the metallic foil paper.  I just adore that paper!!

Thanks for stopping by today :)

This is a true story...

Hey guys!

Thanks for stopping by today, I have a page to share that I made for the October Afternoon blog, and a challenge to go along with it.  I do hope you will go check it out ever there :)

I wish you could tell in these pictures, but I also added some Glossy Accents to the "True Story" letters and they look so fun in person.

This page has as usual, lots of stitching, and washi tape, and uses the red/blue colour combo that is one of my most favourites.

I hope you are having a great day!! :)

Some Fancy Pants cards

Hello Friends! :)  I have two cards to share today, I made these using lots of Fancy Pants Designs product,  and a couple different dies.  

I kept the general layout of them the same, but made one more feminine, and one more masculine.  In fact it's for my new nephew due in Nov.  He will live on a farm where there are 8 other kids, so I thought the "welcome to the circus" was truly appropriate! ;)  lol

This angle shows all the different textures on the card.  I just love using corrugated card stock on my projects, and it worked perfectly with the tag die from Lawn Fawn.

How darling is that bow button??  Seriously, I love love love it! :)

Another fun detail that you might have missed is the Paper Smooches dies I used on the bottoms of the cards.  I love those tiny circles, and faux stitching.  So much fun, and a great way to really make your cards a little more unique.

Here are the supplies I used as available from Simon Says Stamp! :)

Happy for you..

I know, I know, it's been awhile hasn't it?  :)  Things over here have been crazy to say the least.  Our summer has been a blur of visitors, kids leaving to see their Grandparents, a new fur baby, and so much more.  There has also been stress, Fibro flares, and anxiety.  I really struggle with all the fun sides that come with my Fibromyalgia.  Maybe one day I'll share all the gory details, but I'm not sure anyone would want to read about that anyways, so perhaps not!  ;)

I made this card for the October Afternoon Blog, and If you want to read more about the card, and see my inspiration picture, than click here!

Here are the supplies I used:

You & Me

Hey guys!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the October Afternoon blog a bit ago.  I shared how I do a faux letterpress look with embossing folders.

Here is the card, and if you want to see the easy tutorial, just head over to the OA blog here!

And of course here are the supplies I used to make this card :)

Just a few months early...

Sooo.. Yes, I felt the desire to make some Halloween cards in July, so I went with it! LOL.

I was organizing my room and came across all my Pebbles Halloween supplies and saw my Simon Says Stamp "Happy" die on my desk, and decided to put them to use.  I hope that's okay with you guys. ;)

My favourite part of the first card is the little ticket stubs with die cut stars on them.  The tiny stars are from Lawn Fawn and the ticket die is a bit of an older one by My Favorite Things.  I also used my new border dies by Paper Smooches for the die cut ticking marks around the edge of the white card stock.

I decided I needed to use the negative from the happy die cut, and cut the word out in orange to inlay it in my second card.  Good thing I saved all the little inner pieces!  :)  I still love the look of inlaid die cuts, it's just so clean looking. 

Here are the links to the supplies I used for these cards available at SSS.  The Pebbles supplies are a bit older, and not as readily available.  If they aren't in your stash I highly recommend the new Pebbles Halloween line available here. :)
