60th Birthday - Celebrate!


Turning 60 is something to toast! Here I used the Half Full stamp set. I stamped the glasses stamp twice, added a mat, colored in a couple of the glasses and then die cut the numbers from Black Glimmer Paper.



Inside, I added the sentiment "fabulous at any age" (from Itty Bitty Greetings) sort of badge and then will write my own message to the birthday recipient. My card was inspired by this one, made by Crafty-Rootes.

Negative Space Card Creation


I am awaiting my August Paper Pumpkin kit. While I wait, I used this negative from last month's kit to create a sympathy card. I love the way the Old Olive looks when placed over black--very bold! Those stem cut outs somehow seem calm and comforting to me. 


Then, all I needed was a little ribbon, and a sentiment from Flourishing Phrases. Inside the card continues using the rest of the sentiment, "...Praying that your heart will be lifted by the many loving thoughts that surround you today." I stamped this using Versamark ink and then embossed it using Black embossing powder.

Thanks for looking today! Don't forget to take advantage of the last two weeks of this special...

Laser-Cut Sympathy


Sadly, I sometimes need a sympathy card. Using the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin enabled me to quickly put together this card so I could send it off in a timely fashion. 


I really LOVE the new In Color Purple Posy. Here I have added a 4-1/16" x 5-5/16" piece of PP card stock so that the items I added to the front will not show through the gorgeous lace. It also gives you more room to write on the inside if you need it.

Happy Day Lighthouse

Examples from the Come Sail Away Suite

When I first saw the Come Sail Away Suite, I knew I would own it one day. I love everything about this suite! The stamped images and die cuts, the coordinating paper and the trinkets. I haven't even used the Embossing Folder yet, either!



Today's card was inspired by a card that Maike Beimler made in June. I loved how she wrapped the lighthouse with twine, hung the anchor and set it atop the pearl and ship's wheel. Aren't those birds so cute?
