Whisper White bakers twine (124262 – retiring) but that was dies using the Lovely Lipstick reinker (retired). Adding to this is the sentiment that is from the It Starts with Art (149303 – retiring). So many fun and pretty cards. So you think we will find new loves?? I would like to think so…. You?? More retiring stuff to share… moving on to another stamp set I think… I went back all the way to June for this…

    Tuesday Edition of Coffee and Cards

    Thank You for joining me today! How surprised were you this morning?? Happy to get my text message?? I sure hope so! With the uncertainty going on, I hope that a small creative outlet helped you today!! Additionally thank you for helping me chip away at my bits and pieces container. DANG!! Surprised?? You know how it is, once you get started. Ohhh, the ideas I had… Nine in total. The cards in the top picture were entirely of scrap pieces, with only ONE exception. The vellum under the butterflies. OHHH you know I love to break the rules! How about a couple close ups.. Why did I save these…

    March Girls Night idea

    Set Mash Up! Using the Inspiring Iris stamp set (149268) and the Flourish Dies (141478) to create this card. The idea came to me because of the pattern in the stamp set. That pattern is sooo close I decided to try it together. I would say it was a WINNER! How about you? Then ladies decided that this card should be in all different colors!! LOVE! However, I need to point out that the “background” or the “grass” is actually the background for the Iris stem!! To me it looked like a cattail. What do you think?? You really will want to join us next month. I made chocolate chip…

    Happy Fourth of July

    I hope that you has a safe and happy holiday with family and friends! My nod to the red, white and blue, using Flourishing Phrases (s-151407 d-141478) and this may seem like an odd pair, but It Starts with Art (149303). Heat embossing the stamped image with the new Shimmer White embossing powder (149511). to add our fireworks of sparkles. Silver thread and rhinestones of all sorts. Do you think I over did it?? Stay cool, have fun and …. Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
