Return To Sender...


  Made this card for my Flickr group. This month's challenge is, "Love Is In The Mail"

  I immediately thought of Elvis and his song,"Return To Sender"!

  The Elvis stamp is a photo image rubber stamp from The Stampsmith, an online shop. Papers are from BoBunny, "Star-Crossed" collection, and the embossing folder is TH/Sizzix, "Postcard". 

  Sentiment, is from my label maker. Heart dies are from QuicKutz.

  The inside. More hearts from the QuicKutz die set.

  Where did the weekend go?! Hope you are getting some Valentine projects done!

  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday and Retirement!

"The Journey is the Destination"

  One of my favourite men from the Stampers/TH Time Travelers set!
  This was for a friend of ours who retired and turned 60 all in one weekend!
  Used Prima papers from the Time Travelers collection, on a folded large tag. Lots of bits and bobs, including drywall tape and cheese cloth!

  This sentiment stamp is from 7gypsies. Pointy finger stamp is part of a TH collection.

  Hump day is just about over! Hope you're getting crafty and getting some Valentine's done!

Birthday Party Hat


  Busy day for birthdays! Used one of the blueprint stamps I received has a prize on a blog contest. Will post at the end.

 I made this card for Amanda. She was having an "un-birthday" party/crop at Mel's. I was unable to attend as we were going to a 60th birthday / retirement party, but I did manage to drop in and visit with the girls and give Amanda her gift and card.

  All papers used ad embellies (except sequins), are from the DCWV Vintage Collector collection.


  The inside. Sentiments used here are 4 stamps from various sets in my stash.


The back.

  Before Christmas, I entered a contest a woman had posted on a Facebook page I was following. 

  Long story short, my name was picked at random and I won the most fabulous prize! 

  A Tim Holtz craft apron, signed by Tim and Mario, and the limited edition blueprint stamp set put out by Stampers Anonymous and Simon Says Stamp. She also made a beautiful card!

  I'd like to thank Stephanie for the opportunity to win this. You have made me very happy, and all my crafty friends are green with envy!

A Manly Birthday Card

  Made this for Tyler, Courtney's husband. His birthday was last month, December.
  They just got married this past August. Found this to be a bit of a challenge. 

 I do make manly cards, but, they are for men who are my age or older. Tyler is in his late '20s. I think I may have to get more younger manly crafty "stuff"! Lol! 

  The cupcake stamp is from TH blueprint series. I stamped first on patterned paper, then paper pieced. I also used some "White Perfect Puff" from The Artful Stamper for the icing. The sentiment stamp is also from TH, the "Simple Sayings" set.

  All papers used are Authentique "Suave" collection. Added some black Punchinella (sequin waste), brads that look like screws, and a couple of staples.

  Closeup of the puffy icing. After you apply it you can either let it dry or using your heat tool to make it puffy. I added a bit of brown ink.

  The inside. Sentiment stamps are from an old set.

The back. 


  Well it's a new year! Hope you are spending the first day with your family and friends! Thanks for stopping by!

A Doctor Who Christmas Card


  Card I made for Mike. The funny thing is, he doesn't watch Doctor Who! I'm the obsessed one!

  Found this image on Pinterest. Also found a card with this sentiment, except I crossed off WHO and put YOU! Lol! 

 Papers are from Craft and You and it's called "Frozen Paper". Beautiful set!

  This is a sideview so you can see that I made the TARDIS 3D. I glued it to some Grunge paper and gently folded it and mounted it with foam squares.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays

 Made this card for friends of ours. Gave it to them last week, so it's safe to post!

  Just got these TH blueprint stamps in a couple of weeks ago. Love them! The other 2 in the set is a tin soldier and a Christmas tree.

  I stamped them on the background paper, and then stamped again on a matching piece from the set. Used coloured pencils and glitter pens.

  The sentiment is also TH, from the set called "Simple Sayings"
  The inside. The sentiment stamp is from a Hero Arts set called "Merry Christmas Message" set.

 One more day, or 1/2 day, then I'm off until January 4th!

  Have a wonderful Christmas and thanks for stopping by!

We Wish You A Merry Christmas


  I made this for Mike's aunt Dorothy. She has received it so I won't spoil the surprise!

  Love this angel stamp! I bought it at a crafty yard sale. 

  I stamped it on the background paper I selected. I then paper pieced the angels wings and used coloured pencils, white Wink of Stella and glitter pens. Glued them on grunge paper and attached them to card.

  I have a bag of pre-cut stickers of poinsettias, holly, etc. that I've had for years. Decided to use them on my cards this year.


  The inside. The sentiment is from the TH set, "Mini Handwritten Holidays".



The back.

 Here is the stamp set I used. Magenta, Merry Christmas Angels:


  I will be posting Christmas cards over the next few days. Hope you're ready for the big day!

Thanks for stopping by!
