Lighthouse Get Well

One of John's brothers will be having surgery in early December.  I thought I better make a get well card now before the Christmas activities get underway.  I used the Heartfelt Creations stamp set, Sand & Sea.  I stamped the image using Memento black ink and then colored it with Prisma color pencils.  The sentiment is from the Large Fancy Sentiments set by Just Rite Stamps.  The sentiment was stamped using Stampin' Up's basic gray ink to match the card base and the retired Designer Series Papers.   Have a great day!

Hug In A Mug

It surely was a chilly day yesterday.  When I went down to my scrap room I took out Newton's Nook stamp set, Cup of Cocoa, and created today's card.   MFT's Candy Lane Paper Pack includes the two papers used on the card.  MFT's Razzle Berry cardstock is perfect for the card base and the layers for the circle and rectangle.  A happy card to make and look at, too! Have a great day and stay warm!

Happy Birthday Wishes

This pretty little card is about the pattern paper.  The paper is from My Favorite Things.  The two patterns used on this card are in the Party Patterns Paper Pack.  The 6 x 6 pack includes 12 patterns, 2 of each.  I also have one of the matching cardstocks, Cotton Candy.  The little birthday cake is from Lawn Fawn's Elphie Selfie and the sentiment from Stampin' Up's Petite Pairs.  I did not have matching ribbon.  I used white ribbon and ran it across the Cotton Candy cube I purchased and the ribbon turned out to be a perfect color match.  I am thinking that this could be a very cute baby card.  Have a great day!

Peace & Joy Snowgirl

I worked on Christmas cards over the weekend and decided I needed to set Christmas cards aside while I work on other things.  But as I was putting things away, this cute little Sweet Holly Snowman die from Frantic Stamper called my name.  The snowflakes are from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment from Stampin' Up's Good Greetings.   She is just so cute!  And now I am putting the Christmas supplies away for a few days.  Have a great day.

Fall Wreath

The image on today's card is from RG Studio 360's digital set Fall Wreath.  It was colored with Prisma colored pencils a few weeks ago and I set it aside.  Yesterday as I was cleaning up my counters a bit, I came across it and decided that with snow predicted (and it arrived) I better use this Fall themed card soon!  The plaid paper is from Echo Park's Celebrate Autumn 6 x 6 paper pack.   Have a great weekend and find yourself a little stampin' time!                                               .

Sending Hugs

The little girl holding her cute kitten will bring a smile to the recipient of this card.  The image is from My Favorite Things stamp set, New Best Friend.  I used one of the dies in MFT stamps Wonky Stitched Circle STAX dies and used an Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangle die for the white layer.   The "hugs" is also from Avery Elle.   The Balmy Blue card, used for the card base and circle, is a new color from Stampin' Up.  Balmy Blue is a very pretty color.  Reminds me of the retired Bashful Blue.  Have a great day!

Merry & Bright

Merry & Bright was the sentiment I used for this card as a greeting.  After sitting here and looking at the card as I am typing the blog post, maybe the birds are named Merry & Bright!   The sentiment is from another retired Stampin' Up set, Good Greetings.  These cute little birds and the holly are from My Favorite Things' Tweet Holidays stamp set.  The cards I am creating for this Christmas are all so cute.  I can't choose a favorite.   Have a great day and find yourself a little stampin' time!
