Teatime Birthday

Do you have a favorite stamp set that you are always drawn to? Today’s card features a stamp set from Power Poppy. I have quite a few of their digital stamps but this is the only clear stamp I own. It is my go to for female birthday cards because it features three lovely stamps (plus sentiments) to color.

When I saw the current challenge over at Seize the Birthday, I knew I had to use this stamp. Here is the  card that I will be using to participate in the challenge.

The image was colored with copics. I used a scallop border die from Our Daily Bread, sequins, paper and sequins are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by.

John 14:27

A local church  sends Mother’s Day cards to single mothers. This is my third year making cards. You have to incorporate a bible verse either on the front of the card or inside. I love Our Daily Bread Designs stamps to help achieve this requirement.


This is the lavender version.

P4180016And this is the pink version

First I started by embossing the white background piece using a damask folder from Darice. The pink layer I used a lacy background stamp from MFT (it was a little much so I placed a vellum layer over it to soften a bit. I stamped the John 14:27 verse and cut out using a SB circle die and then used a Scalloped die embossing it with the same damask folder. The flowers are from Michael’s and the washi tape is from Stamps of Life. Around the corners of the sentiment layer I used Dazzles – another requirement is not too bulky for mailing purposes. I really like how this turned out.

Thanks for stopping by. Be Blessed.


Guest Designer Week 3

My husband and I love to visit the Amish Country in Lancaster County, Pa. which is about an hour and a half drive for us. There is no mistake that God’s Abundant Bounty is everywhere this  time of the year. All the fields have been cleared of the elephant eye high corn and the last harvest of the fresh vegetables can be found everywhere at farmers stands along the drive.

This is my third week as a Guest Designer at DeeDee’s Digis and I could not help but to use Dee Dee’s Bounteous Blessings for my card.

week-three-cornicopiaI  stamped the Kraft card base using MFT Lace Background with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I printed the image and cut it out using a 3″ circle die (I sponged Antique Linen around the edge to distress it). I inlaid a 3.5″ Scalloped Circle die into the Kraft card base, then adhered the cornucopia onto the chocolate scalloped circle. Using copper cardstock at the top of the card I adhered the Leafy Edge Border (Our Daily Bread Designs) and glued on the pearls. To complete the card I added three flat copper enamel dots.

We broke down Sunday morning and made a fire in the wood burning stove. It was so tranquil. I love this time of the year. Happy Autumn everyone and thanks for stopping by.
