Pocketful Of Florals

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Hey! I haven't been blogging much lately.  I haven't had the time to craft, let alone blog.  I have been focused on other things in my life that take up a lot of my extra time, like home renovations.  We are currently working on a bathroom.  I can't wait until it's finished!
This card came together very quickly and easily.  I had all of these WPlus9 Freehand Floral pieces stamped out and sitting in a little bowl on my desk.  I stamped the black stitching lines on the pocket  and part of the sentiment.  The sentiment is from a set by PTI called Graceful Greetings.  I stamped the 'thinking of you' again on the card front and matched them up before adhering with foam dots.  Then it was a matter of just arranging my flowers.
WPlus9's A Pocketful {linked below} is an older set that I still love.  I've used it so many times from Christmas to Halloween from Wedding to Kids!  One of these was published in Papercrafts Magazine and another is my 4th most viewed post of all time!
Hope you have a great day!

Stamping Patterns With Pen Detail

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Hi!  I went into my craft room the other night looking for a little quiet time to decompress from work.  I just wanted to pull out some images and some of my favorite colors and stamp without any plan for turning it into a finished project.  Just stamping for stamping's sake. 

 I chose a set from PTI called Mat Stack 5 to create my pattern.  Once my pattern was stamped I added dot detail with a fine tip black pen.  I loved how the pattern turned out so today I decided to turn it into a card.  I die cut the piece using the Sunshine Layers die from WP9.  I created the pink strip by adding ink to white cardstock in order to have a perfect match. 
 I love the look of black text over colorful stamped images.  This is how I added my sentiment using a stamp from another PTI set called Half and Half.  I finished it off with this amazing butterfly from the WP9 Small Butterfly Frame die set.

Mother's Day Card And Notepad Set

Sunday, April 24, 2016

My mom mentioned she could use a new little notepad.  I decided to make hers to match her Mother's Day card.  I love making these little notepads.  They are a quick and easy gift to make for someone.  I always keep a stash of white and cream notepads from Papertrey Ink.

I used the new Freehand Florals from WP9 with a ton of Pure Color Dye Inks to create my stamped design.  I die cut the panel with the very feminine WP9 Sunshine Layers die and accented the sentiment with birds die cut from the WP9 Birds and Branches die.  On the notepad I kept the design super simple with just a black bow die cut from balck cardstock using the Lil' Inker Small Bow die.  Sometimes I add a closure, but opted not to this time.
I hope she likes it!
Thanks for stopping by.
