Sending Thanks To You

I colored in the buds and leaves using Stampin' Write Markers

What I like about today's card is that it's a one-layer card in a way! There is one stamp directly on the card base, then two little words stamped onto the die from Stitched Labels. 

I added a few sequins 

My label has "thank" and "you" cut from Gold Foil Sheets using the Well Written Framelits Dies.

I hope you liked looking today! Please leave me a comment so I know you were here.

March Pals Blog Hop "Spring Has Sprung"


Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” - at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.


My card for this month's hop is Spring because it's an anniversary card for my husband, and we celebrate our wedding in the Spring. We are celebrating 39 years this week and I'm going to give him this card while we are out to a special dinner.


My card base is Fresh Fig with a Pear Pizzazz border. Inside the border is a print from the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper. The small rectangle inset is Fresh Fig card stock, layered with another print from the DSP and topped with one of the beautiful vellum prints. The vellum cuts like a dream and you can't see the dots of liquid glue I used to adhere it to the paper. 

I added a Fresh Fig Ruffled Trim knot and some of the leaves and sprigs using the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies and my Big Shot. For a little sparkle, I added some Wink of Stella on the Pear Pizzazz Leaves and the Petal Pink sprig. Then those sweet clear epoxy hearts were my finishing touch.

I hope you enjoyed my project for this month's hop! Please sign up to receive an email when I have a new blog post.


More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 10, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Families First” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

All The Best Purple First Frost


I purchased instructions for cards and 3-D items from Erica Cerwin in early winter. Here, I have changed out the colors and specific Designer Series Paper print to make my own CASE of her card. I also added the vellum leaves for a little extra depth on the card. 


We recently made the original card at one of my workshops and everyone worked hard and loved their cards! 

I hope you are inspired whenever you stop by! Please let me know you were here by leaving me a comment.

Don't forget that if you sign up for the March Paper Pumpkin kit, you will receive one EXTRA FREE stamp set in celebration of Paper Pumpkin's 6th birthday! Order by March 10th to be included in the special celebration kit! (Earn Sale-A-Bration rewards for 3, 6 or 12-month subscriptions!)

Sheltering Lovely Trees


I received an order for 30 cards this month. There were six in each category requested: Sympathy, Birthday, Get Well, Thank You and BLANK. My mind went BLANK when I read the last requested category!! I never make cards without sentiments for myself, so I really had to work hard to make cards without words on the front. I knew that Lovely as a Tree would be a great stamp set for a background of, well, lovely trees! One color ink and a small background piece of Designer Series Paper (from Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper) and I was almost done. I added a piece of ribbon at the last minute.


Another tree set is Sheltering Tree. You stamp the bare tree, then add "leaves" or "blooms" depending on what colors you choose. Here I used Garden Green ink for my leaves and grass. I used Soft Suede ink for the tree and Crumb Cake stamped off for the ground under the tree.

I hope you enjoyed looking today and that I inspired you to create! Let me know how I can help you make the cards you will love to send.
