I'm here and ready to start posting!

I can't believe that it took me this long to get back to my blog. I was a busy gal!

While I was away from here I was still creating but just not being able to discipline myself enough to write up the posts.

My sister knows who I am. She bought this magnet and she was kind enough to say it was for both my dog "Chip" and me, I am sure it was ya, she really does know me lol

Take care and talk to you all soon.
Have a GREAT weekend!

Cute purse that holds cards!

Hello everyone!

I had seen this cute purse or cute bag that holds cards and envelopes and fell in love with it. I couldn't find the instructions for it so I had to figure it out. Turned out pretty cute :)
The paper I have used is the  SHARE WHAT YOU  LOVE by Stampin' Up!

So, here is my version...

This first photo is all the purses together

This second photo is showing two different sizes. The smaller one holds 4 cards with envelopes perfectly and it is made using the 8 1/2 x 11 paper. The larger one can hold up to eight cards with envelopes. But it would also depend on how thick you have made your cards. This larger purse is cut from a 12 x 12 paper

Here are the sets of cards that I have made. I only made four for each purse and there is still room for more! I just love this paper :)

Hope you enjoyed seeing these cute purses and beautiful paper.

Take Care

Make a Wish!

I have a sister who will be having a birthday this coming weekend and I thought I would make her a card using her favourite colours.  I went all out and used more than one stamp set!
I am sure that she will be pleased with it. When we were little we loved to blow on these dandelion "fluff" not sure what else to call it, but it was fun!

I used Wink of Stella on the dandelion fluff. It is hard to get that to show in a photo but it sure looks good in real time :)

 here is a list of the products that I had used to create this card

Enjoy your weekend!

Graduation time

Hello everyone, I am back with a couple of graduation cards. I have two great nieces who are graduating this year after completing grade twelve. So excited for them as they both have plans to continue their education!
card 2

I had used  Stampin' Up June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit! what a fun kit to play & create with. I just love how these two cute cards turned out! The hat and scroll were not included in the kit, I made them by hand and love how they turned out.

Have a great weekend everyone! and to all my Canadian friends, have a GREAT Canada Day weekend!
Take Care and stay safe

My mother's Birthday card

My precious mother has just turned 85! and I wanted to make her a special card. Her birthday was on the 29th so she has it now.
She fell in love with the card! she tells me that I could open my own little shop and sell my cards HA!
She is so sweet love her to bits!

I did make this card a bit bigger than I usually make them. This double Z card measured  5 1/2 x 5 1/2. A nice size for this style of card. I hand-cut the flowers and coloured them in using a blender pen and Stampin up ink. Such a fun card to make.

Just keeping my post short and sweet.
Just like my mom :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Autumn Days Stampin UP retired stampset

Fall is in the air
Here is my creation using the retired Stampin' Up! stamp set  Autumn Days

Here is a list of the supplies and Cardstock measurements that I had used

Early Espresso cardstock for the Card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  scored at 4 1/4
2 strips of  DSP  1/2 x 5 1/2
Crumb Cake  cardstock 3 1/4  x 5 1/2
Tranquil Tide  cardstock 4 1/4 x 3
Very Vanilla  cardstock 4 x 2 3/4
Burlap ribbon was cut at  5 1/2

I do not own the Stampin' Up! markers YET but I was able to use my blender pen and ink pads to colour the pheasant stamp using the colours Tranquil Tide, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede. Once I was happy with it I gently spritzed it with a bit of water before stamping onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Once dried I stamped the wheat and grass with the So Saffron ink. The sentiment was stamped using the Memento ink. The leaves were leftover from a previous project. Yea for leftovers!

I then started to put layers together starting with attaching the dsp paper to the back of the Crumb Cake cardstock then attaching it to the Early Espresso card base. Next, the burlap ribbon was attached using Fast Fuse adhesive. I then glued the very vanilla to the tranquil tide cardstock. To the back of the Tranquil Tide cardstock, I used  Stampin' dimensionals skipping the middle to pop it over the burlap ribbon. I also popped one of the leaves to add a bit more dimension.

Well, that was fun!
Have a great week everyone!
