Christmas Cards 2018

I made 12 of these cards to give family and friends. The card design is from Lori Whitlock's Flex Card Christmas Bundle. All the paper and the stamped sentiment is from Close To My Heart. I added some shimmer using Fun Stampers Journey's Sparkle Silk.

I made a second card too. I made 30 of the snowman. This card design is from Lori Whitlock's Bobble Head Christmas Card Bundle. All of the paper is from Close To My Heart. I also used the Sparkle Silk from Fun Stamper's Journey. To make the bobble head I used a pack of action springs bought on Amazon. The final touch was wiggle eyes!

Sketched Flowers and Gansai Tambi paints

I've purchases a few Simon Says Stamp card kits this year. I created a Simon Says Stamp Pinterest board for inspiration. I recently saw a pin using the Sketched Flowers stamp set from the October kit using the Starry Colors Gansai Tambi paints from Kuretake. I went immediately to Amazon and ordered the paint set along with two other sets! I love the coverage on black cardstock. It is so pretty!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to my mom and all the moms I know. This is the card I'm giving my mom today. It's one of the cards that I created from the April Bloom Box from Fun Stampers Journey. The sentiment embossed on the vellum is from a Close To My Heart stamp set. This card is so pretty in person and was fun to make!

Beautiful Day Card

I spent National Scrapbooking Day making some cards! This is one of the cards that I created from the April Bloom Box from Fun Stampers Journey. It's the first Bloom Box I purchased. I really liked  the techniques and product included. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Bloom Box! If you're interested in Fun Stampers Journey my friend Nancy is a Journey coach.

A Couple of Birthday Cards

Inside message: ...Wondering what happened!

Inside Message: Happy Birthday

Today is my brother's birthday and I made these cards using the Cricut an items from my stash. The first card is a "Bobble Head" card from Lori Whitlock's SVG shop. The head is on a spring! 

The sentiments are from retired stamp sets I have from Close To My Heart. I thought the cunning fox critter worked with the sentiment I wanted to use. On the next card I wanted to use the sentiment about aged cheese. I searched images in Design Space and found one I liked.
