Hello Bluebird

I have never found a farm set that made me feel like I had to have it. Until this adorable Hello Bluebird set! And it was perfect for a birthday card for a sweet friend who loves cows. So here’s a simple little Birthday card using the Farmyard Little Bits stamp set!

Have a wonderful day!

Rustic floral

Today I am sharing a card that was inspired by some wedding floral I just did.  Her bouquet was so pretty and had a nice rustic touch.  And when I saw the Paper Craft Crew card challenge, it was the perfect time to pull my idea together!

ppc #228

I used products by My Favorite Things, amuse studio and Reverse Confetti. blog cardI must add that I even pulled out an old Stampin’ Up! set with the year 1992 on it!!  Yes, I still have sets that old.  I have 2 shelves of some wood mounted sets that I will probably refuse to ever get rid of because I liked them so much!  It that pine needle and pine cone touch on the card that I used the set for.

blog card 3I also found another card challenge blog that I’m excited to follow!  It’s the TGIF challenges and looks like a really fun weekly challenge to participate in, with lots of encouragement to use these cards we are making for something simple and great with their kindness project!  I will be sending this card out as my R.A.C.K. to the lady I did the wedding floral for.  Her and her husband are in the military together and that touches a special place in our hearts for those out fighting for our freedoms.

TGIF April 2018 Challenges_new-002Truly, they are simply fabulous for all they do!!

And that’s my card – for 2 different challenges – for today!  Have I ever said card challenges are my favorite?!  I can’t get enough of them.  I’ve got 5 more on my mind and can’t wait to go create and pull something together with the great ideas these card challenge bloggers come up with!

Add some texture

Ahhhhh…  Sitting to my stamp desk again felt SOO good!  Everything got busy and stayed busy with the clan once Spring Break hit!  I’m challenging myself to make a card a day every day this week except for Saturday.  And I am looking forward to it 🙂

I played along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week which was “Add some texture” and they were featuring Tim Holtz products.  It’s a perfect fit because when I use Tim Holtz stuff, it always ends up “textury”!  There are some card makers out there that do an AMAZING job with it all the time.  For me – it stretches me because it’s not normally what I do.  It’s fun to add it in and this challenge was the perfect time to get all “Tim Holtz textured” again 🙂

The “because” die and the “You’re Missed” is by Lil Inker Designs

Dies from Avery Elle and Spellbinders plus a few little embellishments I have hanging around from Stampin’ Up! and my card was finished.

I might have to play with this style more often!

Totally die cut

Hello friends!  The card I’m sharing today is made entirely of die cuts!  It’s not very often that I make a card that has no stamping on it at all.  I had so fun layering all these  branches and flowers up to make a thick and lovely wreath.  The wreath, flowers and the branches are all part of the Spellbinders die set “Woodland wreath” and they sure layer up pretty!

I  also cut the hello from a beautiful Altenew’s set and layered it several times.  I then placed it in the center of the wreath.

Lastly, I added a bunch of embellishing gems, rhinestones, navy mini pearls, and lots of Nuvo drops!

It’s pretty in it’s simplicity, even though it a lot of time to create.  But the time it took was worth it!  And I can’t wait to send it out.

Happy Spring everyone!

My Favorite Things Sketch 376

My Favorite Things has a simple sketch for their current sketch challenge and I wanted to play along to make a couple of cards.  Here is the sketch

I’ve been in love with this Sweet Succulents set and the coordinating dies, so I just had to use them again.

And just for fun, I flipped the sketch and the orientation of the card to make another.

And that’s a wrap for today’s stamping!

I’ve got my eye on several other challenges.  Can’t wait to see what fun stuff I’ll be pulling out to create with next!  Is it possible to be addicted to challenges? ha ha!  They are so fun to stretch my stamping!

Hugs!

Freshly Made Sketches #328

I played along with sketch #328 over at Freshly Made Sketches for my card today.

freshly made sketch

I used amuse studio stamps with coordinating dies along with dies from My Favorite Things, Spellbinders and Hero Arts to create these cards

freshly made 3I love using the Freshly Made Sketches because I tend to love things clean and simple!

I love a good wreath and these flowers from amuse studio have kind of a wildflower look to them.  Made for fun floral on the wreath

I was having so fun with the flowers that I colored and cut a whole bunch of them.  So while I had all the supplies out, I went ahead and made a fancy wreath card too!

I’m always needing “Thinking of You” style cards so if I’m going to make one, I may as well make 2 while I’m at it!

freshly made 7

With all the pearl accents, and the layered flowers and leaves, it made for a much fuller wreath.

freshly made 5

Both cards were fun to make!  When I finish a simple one, I’m certain that’s my favorite kind.  Then I do a fancier one and think those are.  So I guess I really love both!

But if I had to choose a favorite, it’d probably be the clean and simple  kind.  Thank goodness I don’t have to pick one style with this hobby!!
