For Mom


My Mom's favorite day was always Easter, she was born on Easter Sunday so that made it even more special to her. She loved everything about this day, was deeply religious and filled with joy when she talked about the Resurrection of Jesus. This is the day of the year that I miss her the very most.

The funniest thing to me now was how she would tell us that the bunnies were keeping an eye on us and if we misbehaved too much we might not get any Easter candy. There were six of us kids so I get it :)
This card uses The Greetery Easter Jubilee set of stamps, dies, and stencils.

Easter Jubilee


I got my very first order from The Greetery yesterday to start my Easter cards for this year. Such a lovely assortment of products and they are pretty easy to work with. This set is called Easter Jubilee and has three stencils that you layer to create the shadow for the letter background, one for the leaves, and one for the tulips. It was much easier to line up than I thought. This was on glossy paper which didn't really take the ink up as nicely as I had hoped but not bad for my first try. The letters were die cut twice and layered to give them a bit more height and heft.

The stamps and dies from Time less Tropical by Stampin' Up! really are timeless ones. This set is a keeper for sure. All SU except for embossing folder by Park Lane (Joann's).

Bee Mine


I made a valentine mailbox earlier today using Daisy D's designer paper and thought I would include it with the Bee Mine valentine. Heart shaped card folded at the side. Bee Mine stamp set is by Lawn Fawn.
Happy Heart Day everyone!

Party Santa


I belong to a Facebook Group "Weekly Christmas Card Making Challenge" and this week was to make a funny card which is actually a bit harder than you would think.
This Santa in the card is an older retired set from The Craft Lounge called Holiday Cruiser. The pole is from The Project Bin "North Pole", the sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Party This Way set, I had to cut the sentiment out separately since the arrow was pointing in the wrong direction. Which now when I think about it may have been even funnier. Poor Santa doesn't know which way he's going.

Timeless Tropical


Woot! Finally getting to use the newest Stampin' Up! from the Spring mini. The tropical suite was my favorite in this one, reminds me of one of our favorite places to go- Hawaii. I embossed the flowers and leaves in gold and watercolor brushed them with various SU inks. The embossing folder is by Park Lane.

All You Need Is Love


I love this sweet stamp by Penny Black. I loved the sample on the package and followed the idea of drawing a circle around the main image and coloring it in to highlight the Love Bear. Copic markers to color, Stampin' Up! tulip frame embossing folder- one of my favorites!
