    Sending Butterflies Love and Big Hugs

    Sending Butterflies Love and Big This card was made come the bits and pieces. Can you believe it? This Sending Butterflies Love and Big Hugs was ALL from the leftovers. I was shocked when it fell into place! I did for Coffee and Cards a couple weeks back. Using the Brilliant Wings and the coordinating stamp set. The colored Heat Embossing for the Butterflies. I had them all stamped and clear embossed waiting to be used. The butterflies went perfectly with the “sending” that was also cut out! Adding some Basic Black from my scraps too! However, I will have to admit to you that the inside is really my…

    Third August Ding Dong Ditch Birthday card

    Third August Ding Dong Ditch Here we are with our Third August Ding Dong Ditch card. This one is a birthday card. This Evening Evergreen with the Soft Succulent is just amazing together with that pop of Basic White. Yes, that is even White Craft ink too. Did you know that the Ding Dong Ditch cards are not only with a PDF. I also created them online too. That is the third Wednesday of each month over on facebook. Now I will share that when we make them there, I do take some creative liberties. Meaning I tweak them with help from those that are in the live with me.…

    Sending Hugs from August Ding Dong Ditch

    Sending Hugs from August Ding Dong Here is card number two. Sending Hugs from August Ding Dong Ditch. This one for me was all about the ribbon bow. Using this ribbon as is. Remember the first card, here. We did a LOT of coloring. This one however does not. Keep in mind that we could have. No, do not worry about the bow, grab your reverse tweezers. Take your time and be brave! So note that this time I only used the outline portion of the “sending”. The outline was just enough. I need to admit that I did not save the “dot” for the I. That is why I…

    Sending Smiles from August DDD card one.

    Sending Smiles from August DDD I am super excited to share the four cards from the Sending Smiles from August DDD. Here is the first. This using two different colors from the Pretty Prints DSP. However they are the same pattern. For this card you will need a few Stampin’ Blends to not only color the ribbon, but the embellishments too. Curious what is included in this class?? Typically there is cardstock, DSP (patterned paper) and ribbon and/or embellishments. The cost is usually under $20 for all these fun things. You know how much I love finding ribbon to color. Why?? Because then I can use it ANYWHERE!! And with…

    Final July Culver Library Class Sympathy card.

    Final July Culver Library Here is the Final July Culver Library card. This one even surprised me how it turned out. Still keeping it on the simple side. Ohhh the sprig of lavender on that gray.. isn’t it pretty?? The Sending Smiles bundle includes those lavender. However you also get the dies that create the “Sending” sentiment. Ohh, don’t be like me and forget AGAIN to use the adhesive sheets. I want to kick myself each time! Dang it! You know another thing that always happens. Uugghh, losing the dot for the “I”. Here is a quick fix. Grab those Basic Rhinestone and it looks intentional! The dies also include…
