Happy Mail

A card I made using an SVG file from The Cutting Cafe.  It's cute, but it doesn't leave much room for writing a message inside.  I made this for a shaped card swap I joined.

Winter Deer Scene

Here are some cards I made using a die cut of deer in trees.  I just added a stamped greeting at the top and some digital paper for the background.  These are quick to put together once you have the dies cut!

Christmas Elves

Cute elves from My Favorite Things water colored.  

Sunday, December 2, 2018


Starting to post some of the Christmas cards I've been making.  Today are some simple cards with score lines and die cut snowflakes.  I added some little jewels and pearls in the center.  If you are looking for some quick, last minute cards to make these fill the bill!

A couple more folded books

I know that most of you come here for cards, and I hope you forgive and are perhaps even enjoying the folded books I've been sharing.  It's a new craft for me and I want to practice as much as I can. I will begin posting Christmas cards soon!

This week I tried my first shadow fold.  In a shadow fold, you only fold every other page.  I enjoyed making this one so much.  It was very quick to fold and such fun to see the pattern emerge.

 Here is another book I made for the animal shelter's silent auction.  The pattern is a picture of the Friends Of Animals logo.

Family Tree and Veterinarian thank you folded books

I've made a couple more books and wanted to share them.  The first one I made for my daughter.  I love how this turned out.  

The next book is one I made to thank our veterinarian who has taken such good care of our pets, but most especially lately Riley.  I was thrilled to find this veterinarian themed digital paper to cover the book in.  The pattern is a dogs paw with a heart in the center and circling it is a stethoscope.  She was thrilled when I gave it to her, and I was happy that she could tell it was a stethoscope!

Big Sunflower

I got a new die and had to try it out.  The background is distress inks.  I used copper embossing powder for the center of the flower and the sentiment.  The die really makes a quick and dramatic card.

Just playing

I pulled out some older stamp sets and just played around with them.  It was fun also pulling out some embossing powder that hasn't seen the light of day in a while.

Floral beauty

Here's a card I made using the Minc.  I printed the image and then ran it through my Minc to foil it.  It was then colored with Copic markers. The second image shows the foiling better.

Progressive Freebie Challenge

Hi everyone.  The Progressive Freebie Challenge at the Outlawz this month features a really cute image called Dreamy Fox from Maria Medel at MMedel Illustrations.  I have loved Maria's images for a while now.  She used to be an artist when I was with Squigglefly!

Anyway, I had so much fun putting this little fox in different scenes.  Here are three cards I made.

more folded books

Here are a couple of folded books I made to donate to an auction that raises money for the local animal shelter.  I think the frame will be well liked, but I sure love this studious dog!  I have made the bow tie so that it can removed if the person doesn't want it.

A couple more cards

Not much to say about these, they're just cards I made.

Sympathy for friend lost

I belong to a couple of rubber stamping/card making groups on the internet.  I've made some really good friends in these groups - even though I've only ever met a couple of them in person.  Recently one of our members whom I considered a good friend died unexpectedly.  It is a great loss to so many of us in the group, and she will be greatly missed.

I made this sympathy card to send to her family.

Don't be shy about your birthday!

I went back to one of my favorite older digi stamps to make a birthday card for a friend.  This is birthday shy bear.  I still have so much fun coloring up the shy bear images.  I used a new die on the background and added some glitter.

A different fold

I played around with a different kind of card fold this weekend.  You can get two cards from one piece of card stock!
