A Petite Hello

Good morning, Friends! My sinuses are feeling it this morning from all the dust and pollen blowing around. Ugh! I hope that I can nip that because I am going to enjoy a full day of sewing! I have a project that I am working on and with today and tomorrow being my sewing days, I should be able to get it done! I'm so excited about this project! I was able to get some stamping done yesterday but I couldn't get my pictures to come out. I'm hoping to get that remedied this morning before I go.

Today's card was the last of the cards that we did in club this month. I took several ideas that I had seen and combined them and added a little of my own to get to this! I love Crumb Cake!!

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • On a piece of Crumb Cake, stamp the lines images from Gorgeous Grunge in Crumb Cake ink and the splotches with Whisper White craft ink
  • Adhere panel to a piece of Whisper White and then adhere to card base
  • Make a tag from a piece of Crumb Cake
  • Stamp the Hardwood background stamp onto tag with Crumb Cake ink and sponge edges with Crumb Cake
  • Thread a piece of Natural 5/8" Chevron ribbon through the hole and tie in place with a piece of white baker's twine
  • Adhere tag to card with dimensionals
  • On a piece of Crumb Cake, stamp the flower image from Petite Petals three times using VersaMark ink and then emboss with white emboss powder
  • Punch flowers out with the Petite Petals punch
  • Add mini brads to flower centers
  • Stamp the greeting from Perfect Pennants in Chocolate Chip onto Whisper White and cut out then adhere to tag
  • Arrange flowers around greeting and adhere with dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

CCMC Card "Create"tions Week 3 Favor


Hello everyone! Well, the Create with Connie and Mary Card "Create"tions edition has come to the end of week 3. This was it! What a fun edition! And SO many amazing ideas! I hope you didn't miss it! You can still sign up and view all the card sets and download each tutorial!!! Just sayin'… ;)

So at the end of each week during the edition, each designer shares a little favor with everyone that features the stamp set that was used during that week. This past week I used the Peachy Keen set! What a fun set with coordinating paper, washi tape, framelits, oh my! So I decided to make a frame. All of the products in the suite seemed to say "frame" - lol!


This is actually pretty easy to put together! I bought a plain frame from a craft store and covered it with strips of Retro washi tape! How fun is that!! And so easy! Then I decorated with stamps from the Peachy Keen set and the coordinating On Film framelits. I also used the circle and starburst framelits, too. The heart comes from the Essentials Wooden Elements and the camera has a large rhinestone for the lens. I thought this frame would be fun for two pictures and that's why I cut two frames. I was thinking along the lines of those small school pictures! Or how about cute pictures of you and your friends?! Whatever your imagination can create! 

Don't forget to see what the other designers made! You can find their creations at Create with Connie and Mary! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your wonderful comments on my card sets! I really appreciate it! I hope you have gotten lots of great ideas these last three weeks! Have a super day!

Wetlands Birthday

Good morning, Friends! Well, my son is home again today :( His allergies are still really bad. He has had quite a time with them since Sunday. I do hope he gets better soon!! I hate it when he's sick but I hate it more when he falls behind in school! And Thursday is Parent/Teacher conferences. He only has 6 more weeks of school. Hopefully today he will start to feel much better…

For today's card I borrowed a set from my friend Emily. I only made two cards with it but it is a really great set! I love it! And I may have to put it on my next order! This card didn't turn out quite like I had planned but it will work.

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • On a piece of Naturals Ivory, stamp the wheat stalk from Wetlands in Crushed Curry
  • On a scrap piece of Naturals Ivory, stamp the goose in black StazOn and color him with a blender pen and Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke and Crushed Curry markers(I also used a white chalk marker for the spot on his neck)
  • Cut out the goose and grass and adhere to panel with dimensionals
  • Adhere this panel to a piece of Chocolate Chip
  • Wrap some linen thread around panel three times and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Use the Decorative Label punch to punch the shape from Chocolate Chip and adhere to card with dimensionals

Raspberry Silhouettes

Good morning, Friends! Brrrr!!! I was enjoying the warmer temperatures and now we are below freezing again. Ugh! I just hope that it wasn't too bad for our fruit farmers. It looks like it could be another cold one tonight, too. And then it's supposed to warm up. At least the sun is shining today after a great day of rain yesterday! I have to get my stuff ready for stamp club tonight. I'm looking forward to a great time with the club ladies!

For today's card I pulled out some stamps and colors that I haven't used in a while. Raspberry Ripple will be retiring at the end of May. I really do like this color and used it a lot when it first came out. And Summer Silhouettes is still one of my favorite stamp sets but it got pushed back on the shelf when the Occasions mini came out. So it was nice to work with them again!

  • Card base is Crumb Cake with the bottom right hand corner rounded with the 1" circle punch
  • On a layer of Crumb Cake, round the bottom right had corner with the 1" circle punch
  • Stamps the border image from Summer Silhouettes in Crumb Cake across the bottom
  • Stamp the stems in Old Olive (I had to use a Post-It to mask off the border so that my stem would not stamp where I didn't want it - lol)
  • Stamp the flower tops in Raspberry Ripple
  • Cut a scallop border from Raspberry Ripple card stock using the Tasteful Trim die and adhere to stamped panel
  • Stamp the greeting from Sweet Essentials in black StazOn
  • Wrap a piece of silver twine around the panel twice and secure on the back (I use scotch tape)
  • Adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Thread a piece of silver twine through a Basic Metal button and tie a bow on the back side of the button and adhere to card with glue dots
  • Cut a butterfly from Pink Pirouette card stock using the Beautiful Wings embosslit and adhere to card

Freshly Made 131

Good morning, Friends! Well, what a surprise! A nice one, too! It's raining! We really need the rain. And it even thundered!! A spring storm! However, the mountains will be getting the snow and that's good, too! Things will really start to green up now. I guess it is supposed to get below freezing tonight and perhaps tomorrow night which isn't great for the fruit trees around here. So I hope that their crops aren't affected too much. I do love the peaches!! I will be meeting Becky for some brunch and then it's off to a full day of stitching! I haven't done that in a long time so that will be nice! Maybe I can get something done.

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made. I am always trying to think of ways to incorporate the new foil designer vellum. Love that stuff! And I think today's card really goes with the weather outside right now - lol!

  • Card base is Very Vanilla
  • Adhere a piece of Very Vanilla to card base with dimensionals
  • Adhere a strip of gold foil designer vellum to layer
  • Make a tag from Very Vanilla card stock by cutting off the top corners and flagging the bottom and then punching a hole at the top
  • Stamp the sentiment from Rain or Shine onto the tag using Basic Gray ink and the umbrella handle in Basic Gray
  • Thread a piece of gold twine through the hole and tie a knot
  • Punch a strip of gold foil card stock using the dotted scallop ribbon border punch and then adhere to right side of tag then adhere tag to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the umbrella top onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using Calypso Coral ink and cut out then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Punch a flower from Soft Sky using the itty bitty shapes punch pack and adhere to umbrella top
  • It's hard to tell from the photo, but for the flower center I adhered a gold sequin and then a pearl on top
There you have it! Have a super day and thanks for stopping by!

CCMC Card "Create"tions Week 2 Favor


Good morning, Friends! The Create with Connie and Mary Cards "Create"tions has come to the end of week 2! Wow! I hope that you are a subscriber and have seen these amazing card sets! If you aren't a subscriber then why not join today? You can still enjoy all the projects that have been shared so far and download the tutorials! At the end of each week, the designers share a little favor using the set that was used during the Cards edition. This past week I used the Blooming with Kindness set. I don't own this set so I borrowed it from a friend. So the only way to see any cards that I have made with this set is to be a subscriber! (I do think that I have shared one card made with this set)

This week I made a tea bag holder.



I won't go into a lot of detail as to how I put it together. I used the directions from the Splitcoast Stampers website. And I do wish that I had prettier tea bags to put into the slots but all I had was the Lipton yellow tea bags. But I think you get the idea :) I used Basic Gray, Primrose Petals and Pink Pirouette card stock and Primrose Petals and Basic Gray ink. The tea bag holder is held closed by a piece of Primrose Petals stitched satin ribbon. I used a piece of the silver foil designer vellum for the inside of the holder and silver twine for the spine of the holder. 

I enjoyed making this sweet little gift! I thought any of the sentiments would work for this project! I kept thinking about Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory when he always says to his friends in distress "Can I offer you a hot beverage?" Love that show!! Anyway, there you have it! Be sure to stop by the Create with Connie and Mary website to see all the treats that the other designers have created! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
