Feeling Thanks

Hi. Thanks for stopping by!

Many palpable “thanks” grace the embossed front of this card. Literally a variety of “thanks” to touch and feel! Navy, white, and silver. Polka dots. Tiny pearls. To further convey thankfulness is a stamped sentiment opening over a gift card pocket inside.

Amazing fun to make this card. Feeling thankful. ūüėČ

Happy Birthday, Friend!

Ah . . . it’s a special friend’s birthday today. She makes 45 look so very good!

I pulled this card from my stash of handmade Birthday Cards, all made with love. It’s on kraft cardstock with¬†edges burnished in a coppery-gold to match the sheer ribbon. Went a little wild with coppery-gold dots here & there, because, well, metallic ink is such a¬†blast. T’was enjoyable to make but even more fun to sync it with this good friend.

Happy Day!

Embossed, Stamped, Inked, & Accented

Ahh . . . imperfect. ūüôā¬†Just a quick & quirky card using a dry-embossed card base and¬†heat-embossed sentiment. Rubber stamping went wild to create a background on the top layer.¬†Edges & a few raised flowers were inked with abandon. Finished with a wrap of black hemp cord and shiny dollops of enamel¬†(by a shaky hand). Imperfection is alright by me.

Thanks for dropping by & here’s to a stellar day!

Wintery Card for a Challenge

Hi! Mojo Monday sketch 418 inspired the layout of this wintery card. I have browsed through sketches in the past, but have never used one directly. Besides, why not participate in a challenge?

Dry embossed snowflakes in the background invite glitter & velum flakes to drift in front. I may never tire of my Hero Arts Tree Trunk background stamp. The trees provide the perfect perch for a sweet wooden bird. I used VersaMagic ink and Neenah cardstock (Desert Storm for the card base & alternating layer and Solar White for all else).

Thanks for the inspiration, Mojo Monday. Happy day to all!

Purple. For Christmas?

Happy Evening!

I would rarely see purple and think “Christmas card” – but there it is. It feels snowy and peaceful . . . I like it! I sponged the edges of the dry-embossed snowy snowman scene with a touch of purple. Found a few flat purple sequins in my stash for buttons. Used glittery snowflakes.

I looped silver cord under a glitter heart — inspired by a favorite crafter’s signature “Pootle Loops” — should you visit http://www.pootles.co.uk, prepare to be blown away! In SO many ways.

Thanks for your time and much happiness to you!
