Beautiful Blizzard

Day two of being snowed in...
This card uses Stampin' Up!'s Beautiful Blizzard, embossed in white. The background was made with Tim Holtz distress oxide inks. Pretty simple and easy to mail.

Love and Turtles

I think my mojo may be returning, I had such a dry spell where nothing I did felt right. Dusting off my supplies and getting back into the daily challenges. Will be posting more Stampin' Up! stuff like the old days :)

The first card uses the Lawn Fawn Baaah Humbug set which was really a Christmas set but you can use it for all kinds of occasions. The background was made using Whisper White card stock, a hearts embossing folder by Park Lane, and the Tim Holtz distress oxide ink colors of Barn Door and Victorian Velvet. The sentiment banner is from Stampin' Up!'s Bloomin' Love set. A glitter heart from one of their older punches popped up with a dimensional foam piece.

The second card was for the faux bleach technique (found on SplitcoastStampers tutorials section).
Glossy and Whisper White, Bermuda Bay card stocks. Tim Holtz alcohol inks of Stream, Pool, and Butterscotch for background. Images are from Hero Arts (a retired monthly kit) embossed in clear and then ironed to leave the white outline. Dreaming of swimming with the sea turtles with this one!

My Mom Mom's maiden name was Valentine and I have always loved making valentines for all of the special people in my life, must be in my DNA.

These cards use The Project Bin's lovely sentiment stamps.

The first card uses the heart from Spencer's Set, embossed in white and colored with Copic markers. A portion of the profits from this set will be donated to The Autism Research Institute.

The sentiment from both cards is from the Really Hungry set found below.

Better organization in the new year

Here's to the start of a more organized Christmas for 2020. I had such a time just getting my cards out this year because I didn't finish the inside greetings. I will even have an envelope ready to go with each card this year, filled out with return address and stamping on front and back to make the outside pretty as well.
I plan to be involved in some card challenges to keep me on track, this one is for the fun Jingle Belles inspirational challenges. The prompt was to use some of the packaging from your recently opened presents and I used a leftover tag and some of the fun SU yarn I used for my gifts.
Paper is retired SU and the tag was made using Lawn Fawn For You, Deer set.

Happy 2020!

Wishing you all a very happy 2020! May it be filled with many blessings, good health, peace, and creative joy.

I used Stampin' Up! products for this card. Blueberry Bushel card stock that was heat embossed using the retired Filigree background stamp (a favorite of mine) with Versamark and copper powder. Copper cording, Large Numbers dies with Tim Holtz Metallic Confections copper paper to complete.

Pink Roses

One more card with this beautiful paper from Authentique. I used the roses from Simon Says Stamps "Beautiful Flowers" that I colored with Copics and cut out. Copper metallic foil die cut butterfly and wavy banner sentiment by Lawn Fawn to complete.

Happy Birthday, Denise!

Welcome to a special surprise birthday hop!
