Birthday Wishes From Friends

Thursday, February 23, 2017

Yesterday was my birthday, and I received some wonderful hand made Stampin' Up cards from friends that I would like to share with you.

These came together; a box of Hershey Nuggets created with the Balloon Pop-Up thinlits in the Occasions Catalogue, and the ever popular Hey Chick stamp set from Sale-A-Brations.

Here is just the card...

...and here is the box of chocolates (one is missing already, lol).

Next, is this pretty card. I always love the Petite Petals and punch on a card!

You'll have to forgive me as I do not recognize this embossing folder or stamp set, but I love this card. The photo does not do the card justice.

I thank everyone that send me little gifts and all the cards, it really made my day! And all the Facebook greetings were wonderful too.

Hope you are all having fun creating, too. Remember to check in on Saturday for the Seashore Stampers Blog Hop!

Hugs to everyone!

The First One I Made...

Friday, February 17, 2017

Just a couple of days ago, I posted a lovely wedding card for the Global Dream Theme Blog Hop. I did not tell you that the card I posted was actually the second card I made for the Hop. After encouragement from friends, I'm also sharing with the the first card I made but wasn't happy with. After the comments of friends, I am starting to see that this card isn't terrible like I thought it was.

Just as you saw the used of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper on the card posted, I used it here as well as a mat for the lovely lacy paper from the "Falling in Love" collection. I heat embossed the "Floral Phrases" stamp and sentiment over the DSP. I also used Dazzling Details (which sadly is no longer available) over the heat embossed floral stamp (which you can't really see in this photo).

The inside, just like in the one posted, I kept very simple by just stamping the sentiments and matting it. Hope that you like it.

Happy stamping everyone!

Birthday Card for My 2 Year Old Grandson

Thursday, February 16, 2017

February 14th is my youngest grandson's birthday, and this year he turned two. This past year I have been getting back into crocheting and have started working on crocheting afghans for my 8 grandchildren. Every Christmas is one family, and then the next. So when I started thinking what could I possibly crochet for my eldest son's family that live in Phoenix, where it's hot all the time...well my son said that the teenage girls would still appreciate afghans, and my little grandson would love booties and a pullover sweater for the cooler days. My thought was it doesn't ever get cool down there, does it?

Well I went ahead and made his some slipper booties for his birthday, and plan to send him a pullover for Christmas. But that's not what this post is all's about the card!

He loves to be outdoors and so I created this card for him.

I coloured the bird using the new Watercolour pencils and a blender pen.

Not because his birthday is on Valentines Day did I stamp hearts and a kiss, but because if I were there I would give him hugs and kisses.

So now I just wait and see if he likes his slippers and card...

Thank you for stopping by today to have a look, and for putting up with some of my 'Grandma' stuff.

Happy creating!

Dream Theme BLog Hop - Weddings

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Welcome from Renate's blog!

Before we know it, weddings will be announced as the warmer weather comes along. It may be hard to think of that as many are still having problems with snow, and I know there are winter weddings too, but it is the warmer weather that seems to suddenly have you going to a lot of weddings. So with Spring and Summer weddings in mind, and bedazzling the bride, is what inspired this card. Oh, and there is nothing wrong with having some wedding cards at hand so that you don't have to rush at the last minute to create one.

As you can see I used the 'Floral Phrases Bundle' to create my wedding card with. This is a great 'go to set' for any kind of wedding project - invitations, cards, gift sets, boxes, wedding keepsakes, table decorations, luminaries, etc.

Dazzle the bride! Behind the die cut I have the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, and used it as scalloped died cut mat for the Stampin' Write Marker coloured stamping on the Stitched Square die cut, as you see in the photo below.

This side view shows the layering and the ones that are popped up.

I kept the inside very clean and simple by matting with the Pear Pizzaz, and stamping the sentiment with Flirty Flamingo.

Hope that you enjoyed this lacy sparkly card that a bride will love.
