The 12 Kits of Occasions

Welcome to another beautiful and very cold 12 Kit’s :
Our hostess Renee from It's a Patchwork Life
Thank You Renee for a very fun packed Kit.
 I loved the pink!
 Oh my gosh I have so much left!

 I have a very random selection of cards today!

 I am entering this snowman card in the 
 Anything goes. 

Oh my goodness this glitter paper is amazing in
 person, so I just let it shine!

Renee stamped so many beautiful pink sentiments I decided to make a card out of them.

I may have cluttered this one up a bit… 
I just kept adding and adding. 

I am adding the card above to Merry Monday

I would have liked to have the word snow at the lower edge,
 but I had to hide a tear. 

Please stop by 12 Kit’s Blog to get the full supply list, click on the tabs under the banner. You will also get all the details about our group.
We  have a guest designer with us Judy Marino 
Welcome Judy, and I loved the card you added to our 12 Kit's
I hope you have a wonderful week!

wtih Dawn McVey

A quick card today, for my husbands sister. I must confess I did not use paint I used ink. Other than that I followed instructions. 
I painted first, heat dried the paper then embossed in white. 

Stamps: Mum's the Word and Faith & Hope  from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Welcome to the Hop.
 I chose the two lower right photos for my inspiration.

I used the new Button Stacks Die ,Frilly Flowers and 
Faith & Hope on the card above. 

For this card I used Frilly Flowers and did quite a bit of masking to have the flowers look layered. 
Not sure why I didn't use any of my new stamps. 
Have fun on the hop I am sure there will be tons of inspiration.

Thank You!

More Flowers

 I sure loved learning this technique by Heather

 I am going to say this is a clean and simple card.
 I will add a sentiment when I know what this will be used for.

I stamped my first image, Tweet Talk  from Papertrey Ink , in white, then stamped the colored ink on top of the white. Using, Solid Stitches & Swirls . I like the subtle look of the underneath design. 

Hope you have a blessed day!

Barbecue Weather In CA.

This card  just seems to go with our weather. 
I will not be bragging in the summer when we have no water. 

This time the Design Team was asked to add a
 blended background to our card. 
For everyone else the challenge is the same… Make a card with type print or sheet music to your card. You have a chance to win 20$ off your order.

I have been trying to teach myself how to do more with my blog. I finally learned how to add the watermark that Anya Schrier made for the DT at Serendipity Stamps.
I am not the best blender but I did blend a few blues for my sky. I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the lawn chair. 

Sale : Buy 3 items and the 4th one is free!
 good through February 26



Gold Embossed Holly

This photo shows the embossing a bit better.

 I used  gold and red 

Hello, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 
We spent ours with family and friends. Not much time for crafting though. 
I missed playing in Merry Monday .. just way to much going on last few weeks. I knew after seeing the DT cards that I wanted to play. 

I used the Holly stamp from Serendipity Stamps. I love it when a card comes together in a matter of minutes. ( not loving it when the photos give me trouble ) I cut a bit off the front of the card and added a strip of gold foil paper to the bottom.  I fussy cut the image and used foam tape to adhere to the card.  

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Vintage Cream ..Vintage Green?

 Create a  card with a matching envelope… 
Something I love to do and I make many.

I used my envelope punch board to make the envelope and you can go Here to learn how to make the fast and simple liner.

Again ...I apologize for the photos .I will try to get some tomorrow with natural light.

 I used Mums The Word stamp and die set, Lovely Layers stamp and die for the leaves… I wanted them to be a bit bigger.The sentiment is from Women of Life ( discontinuing on the 15 I think)
 The ink is Mellon Berry and the paper is Vintage Cream not (Vintage green) :) I cut the flower in a striped paper and layers it a bit to the side. 
Hope you all had a nice St. Valentine's Day!
Thanks for stopping by !( looks like I misspelled that on another post)
I do that a lot 
All products are from Papertrey Ink
but, the LID stitched rectangles.
