Some French Themed Cards To Share

Hi everyone! I know it's been a while since I updated my blog. I really have been a busy bee working on my Etsy shop and have neglected this space for too long. I'm still making cards, probably even more than before! I have a few to share with you today. I was browsing my local Joann store a while back and came across a new paper line by Jolee's that has a French theme. I think it was geared more toward the party decor creator, but paper is paper!

Starting with my personal favorite! I love this Bonjour any occasion card. I stitched the edges in gold thread. I had so much fun collaging the die cuts together.

I printed the birthday sentiment with my laser printer and used my Minc to gold foil it.

This paper pad has a lot of different looks, so this one is not like the others at all! Another Minc'd sentiment is on this one.

I hope you like my cards today! I'd also like to take the time to point out that I've opened a destash shop on Etsy as well. I'll be purging my stash and selling some of my stamps and other supplies at great prices! See the link in the right sidebar or click HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend!

JustRite Papercraft New Release- Small Oval Wishes

Happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing a card made with brand new stamps from JustRite Papercraft. Small Oval Wishes is a wonderful sentiment set that can be combined with the included oval frame stamps and cut out with their new oval dies.

Okay, I'll be honest, this card is all about this gorgeous paper from Pebbles called Cottage Living. I do tend to make my cards based on my paper choices, but the stamps and dies are the perfect partners to bring this card to life. I've chosen the birthday sentiment because these are the ones I tend to make the most of. I stamped the frame first in mint green ink, then used the oval die and scalloped oval die from  Joy Oval Frame Dies that are also part of the new release. The banners were cut using Stitched A2 Banners And Rectangles dies, which were released previously. I've found that I use these die all the time! I really had fun plying around with this set, it's a really good collection of versatile sentiments and would make a great addition to your collection.

Thanks for joining me today! I'll be back during the week to show you some cards using more of JustRite's new release, I hope you'll join me!

Mother's Day Challenge At My Sheri Crafts!

Good afternoon! It's time for a new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts and we are celebrating Mother's Day! Show us your Mother's day projects and made sure there is a flower on it somewhere!
Here's my Mother's day card for you:
I recently purchased the Treasured Moments collection by Kaisercraft and it is a stunning collection of papers! The main floral paper was used as the background on my card. It has a wonderful water colored look that is all the rage. I like using cameos as focal points on Mother's Day cards, I found this one in the Silhouette store. I added a sweet satin flower to her hair. All dies are by Spellbinders and the sentiment is from JustRite Papercraft.

I hope you'll join us this week and link up those Mother's day projects! Hope to see you there. Have a lovely week!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge- Thinking Of You

Happy Saturday! It is time for another challenge over at My Sheri Crafts! The theme this time around is 'Thinking Of You'. I have a colorful Spring  card for you today.

This one was made from an older Anna Griffin card kit named Engraved Botanicals. I just adore the yellows and blues on this card; it such a crisp addition and really sets off the pinks and greens in the sentiment and flowers. Thinking Of You cards are a very versatile card to have in your card stash. They can be used as sympathy cards, encouragement cards, miss you cards or to reconnect with someone you may have lost touch with.

I hope you'll join us this challenge and link up your thinking of you cards. See you at My Sheri Crafts!

Thanks for stopping by!

It's Easter Time!

Good evening everyone! I hope this post finds you well and getting ready for your Easter celebrations this Sunday. Spring has finally arrived in my part of Georgia, and besides everything being covered in pollen at the moment, it is really beautiful! The dogwood trees are in bloom and the perennials in our yard are waking from their winter slumber. In the spirit of Spring,  I whipped up  a few quick and easy Easter cards this week using old Easter postcard images.

This is one of my favorites! The post card image is just so sweet. I've layered it onto a beautiful framed  card background, added a doily, ribbon and paper flowers. Very quick to make and I love the result.

This stunner is a pretty atypical Easter color scheme of blue and yellow. I adore this postcard image!

 Don't you just love these bunnies? So sweet! All this one needed was a lavender mat on top of some lovely pink flocked paper and a silk ribbon bow.

These were all very easy and simple to do, but yet they have a lot of impact. Sometimes more is not more!

I would like to take this time to wish you a very Happy Easter and let you know how much I appreciate your visits and wonderful comments! I'll be back on Saturday for a new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts. See you then!
