Creating All Occasion Cards

Hi! Today I am popping in with a card I created with products from Pretty Pink Posh. I like to have a stash of all occasion cards. They are work for celebrations and when you just want to send a note. The "hello" sentiment that I die cut with the Hello Friend Script Die is prefect for these kind of cards.


I used the Mother's Day Stamp Set and Mother's Day Coordinating Dies to stamp and die cut the vase and flowers. This stamp set was created for Mother's Day but the vase and flowers work year round. I wanted to create the look of a vase setting on a table, so I used the Wide Stripes Stencil to give the look of wallpaper. 


I used one of the dies in the Scallop Borders 2 Dies to create the tablecloth and added a piece of lace at the top. I added a little bling with the Sea Glass Jewels

Thanks for stopping by today!!

I have a fun, just make you smile birthday card to share that I created with the Stacey Yacula Studio - VW Bus Stamp Set. The sale goes runs through July 29th.

A Note of Thanks

Hi all! I have been on vacation for a couple of weeks and I am finally getting back in the swing of things. I needed a thank you card for friends that we stayed with for a few days on our trip. I created a Note of Thanks with products from Pretty Pink Posh.


The Peonies Stamp Set is one of very favorite PPP floral stamp sets, although it is hard to choose! I colored the images with Copic Markers and then die cut with the Peonies Coordinating Dies. The pretty hummingbird is from the Hummingbird Thanks Stamp Set and die cut with the Hummingbird Thanks Coordinating Dies. 


The sentiment is included in the Animal Signs Stamp Set. I stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The background is created with the Wide Stripes Stencil and a pale aqua ink. I added a few Sparkling Clear Jewels to finish off the card. It is ready to go in the mail!! 

Have a great week!

I have three cards to share with you today that I created with the Vintage Treasures Collection by Becca Feeken. My first card is created with the Shapeabilities Nobel Chatelaine Etched Dies Vintage Treasures. This a such a delicate looking die cut and each die in the set looks so pretty layered together.


I inked the flowers and the leaves and attached them with twine. The sentiment is from the Captured Sentiments Clear Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and embossing with white embossing powder. The final details are a few jewels. The background is inked with aqua and green ink and layered behind the panel of vellum. 


My second card features the Shapeabilities Brillante Rondelle Etched Dies. I love how the circles can be layer together and can be also be used separately.  Here I simply layered the die cuts together and stamped a sentiment in the middle. 


The flower detail is created is another die in the collection, the Shapeabilities Cinch and Go V Etched Dies. This set of dies includes four different size flowers, a center and two leaf designs. 


My final card is created with the center die cut in the  Nobel Chatelaine Etched Dies and the flowers in the Shapeabilities Cinch and Go V Etched Dies. I stamped the sentiment in the center of the die cut on black cardstock, stamping in Versamark Ink and embossing with white embossing powder. 


I arranged the flowers and leaves around the sentiment and added jewels to the center of the flowers. The background is stenciled.
