Feel Better

Today's card is one I made for Jenny.  The stamp set is Bed Rest          from My Favorite Things.  The pattern paper is also from MFT Stamps and looks good with SU's Pool Party cardstock.  After coloring and piecing the matching blanket on the image, I cut it out with the Scan N Cut.  I adhered the image to a circle which was cut with MFT's Wonky Stitched Circle Stax Dies.  The long-retired Stampin' Up Scallop Border punch, one of those items on which my money was well-spent, created the edge.  Pool Party twine and adhesive dots complete the card.  Have a great weekend!

Anniversary Blooms

A while back, RG Studio 360 released a new digital stamp set, Bold Blooms.  The set has flowers and sentiments.  The set is only available as an online class.  By purchasing the virtual class, I had access to the video the day it first aired and whenever I want to view it.  After downloading the set, I pulled it into Word and made the set three different sizes.  Now that it is saved on my computer, I will have access to the set whenever I want to use it. 

Today I used two of the roses which I colored with alcohol markers. (The picture on the right is the flower section of the stamp set.)  The sentiment is from RG's Boho Classic stamp set while the background paper is from Wild Rose Studio.  I have made some pretty cards with the flowers in this set.  Have a great day!

About The Dies

I know that lately I cut out most things with the Scan N Cut.  But sometimes, just using dies can make really cute cards.  And here is one of those cards.  The white layer and the picture frame were both created using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangle Frames.  I used Stampin' Up's foam strips to adhere the frame to the white layer.  (The frame was created using two stitched dies nested together and cut at the same time.) Even the candles and flames are dies.  They were cut from MFT Stamps' Birthday Candles.  The flames were brushed with a Zig clear glitter pen.  While typing this, I cannot recall which set I used for the sentiment.  I do know I cut it out with MFT's Word Frame dies  Have a great day!

Ice Cream Day

Yesterday was National Ice Cream Day and I had the perfect card.  It really is a quick and simple card.  I used Avery Elle's Sweetest stamp set for both the images and the sentiment.  After stamping and embossing the images, I used alcohol markers to color them.  My Scan N Cut quickly cut them out for me. This card would have been cute even if there was only one ice cream treat on it!  Have a great day!

I am finishing up the week with another tropical card.  But today's card has neither flowers nor pineapples!  Instead, it is a cute card with a cute dolphin and little crab.  The little ocean creatures are
 images from Sunny Studio Stamps' Oceans of Joy.  The word "SMILE" is a die which I received as a gift from MFT Stamps.  I used coordinating papers for the background and the word.  I used a border punch to add a little interest, punched out of the same paper as the word was cut.

On another note, Sheryl's birthday is Saturday, not today!  Have a great weekend and find yourself a little stampin' time!

Birthday Pineapple

In keeping with the tropical theme, today's card was made for my friend, Sheryl, who celebrates her birthday tomorrow.  She made me a delicious cake with pineapple frosting for my birthday.  A pineapple card would be the perfect thank you/happy birthday card for her.  The images and sentiment are from RG Studio 360's So Sweet.  Happy Birthday, Sheryl!  Hope everyone has a great day!

Hibiscus Thinking of You

This is turning into a week of tropical cards!  Today's card was created using RG Studio 360's new digital stamp set, So Fab.  After printing and coloring the images, I put that page into the Scan N Cut and I used two of those images for this card.  After putting the card together, I added the twine and SU rhinestones that I colored using one of the same alcohol markers.  RG is coming up with some nice stamp sets.  And then so is My Favorite Things!  Have a great day!
