Crazy 4 Challenges #406
Anything goes!!! So I used some Stampin' Up! products along with a Stampabilities Stamp - Nativity. The combination of Stampin' Up! cs and die from A Night in Bethlehem Bundle makes for a beautiful z fold card.
Since I purchased this Bundle from Stampin' Up! I certainly have enjoyed creating with it.

It's Been A While...

Hi there my fellow cardmakers & crafters. I know it has been a while since I posted. The summer kept our home full. We had a lot of family come for visits.
Anyhoo, today I am sharing a card I created for a challenge at SIP Challenge #117 - Watercolor



For my card I used my Kuretake watercolor paint set. Once I got started with this first card, the mojo kept flowing until I had made 3 more! It is very fun. I liberally wet a piece of watercolor paper with my paintbrush. Then I chose my color combo. For this card I used 3 shades of blue and a little pink that mixed with the blue, gave me a light purple. Which I loved! Then everything was completely dry I spattered my Perfect Pearls Forever Green, Mint, Forever Violet, and a little bit of Gold. I loaded up my brush with wet paint. Then I tapped the paint brush on my finger and spattered the metalics. Let your piece dry completely while you work on the other elements of your card.
I really do LOVE this technique.

Using Whisper White cs and one of the dies from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits from Stampin' Up!, I cut the pattern for my window.

I used Nuvo Crushed Grapes Crystal Drops on the four corners.
I used a stick for my sentiment and I die cut a little purple flower with a yellow dot for the center to accent my card.

Mother's Day Card


Here's a little shot of the card I made for my mom for Mother's Day 2017. I used dies from Mama Elephant to cut window frames, window boxes and shutters. I used punch from Stampin' Up! for my cardinals, flowers and stems. The lacey border is a punch from Martha Stewart. DSP, ink and cardstock are all from Stampin' Up!

To make my cardinals I searched Google for a photograph of a male and female side by side so I could compare colors. My mom loves birds! In her living room she has her chair set up next to a window overlooking her backyard. She can sit for hours watching the birds come and go to her flowers and feeders.

I was fortunate enough to spend this Mother's Day with my mom as well as my dad, my brother and sister in law and my hubs. It was a beautiful day. Hubs cooked brisket, potato salad and green beans. I made a cake and we all enjoyed our meal, our day and our visit!

Hope all Mother's had a blessed day.

C4C386 Birthday Card


I must admit, I haven't played in a challenge in quite some time. But I really liked the looks of the sketch over at Crazy 4 Challenges this week. It allowed an opportunity to play with some new (for me) stamps and some new and old dies.
Included are stamps from Stampin' Up!, some Spellbinders and Marianne Design Creatables Dies. The ink is from both Stampin' Up! and Ranger. The DSP and cardstock are from Stampin' Up! as well.

4th of July Cards

Here I am again with more patriotic cards. These are for July's Independence Day. I have been commissioned by a little lady to make 30 4th of July cards. No 2 are exactly alike.












And they are all done and I am crazy about them all, if I do say so myself.
