Honey Comb Birthday card

I Love the honeycomb cuttlebug embossing folder.   I find myself using it for all cards lately!  Here is another one using the Close to my heart's Clementine paper.  But I cut out only a line of honeycomb and filled them with paper from the CTMH paper.  Simple design but came together nicely I think.  Stamp is from Close to my heart as well as the cardstock.

Mojo Monday Thankful Card

Had some time to get scrappy today and saw the sketch challenge for Mojo Monday and used it for the layout of this card.  All the product is from Close to my heart except for the cuttlebug honeycomb embossing folder.  The paper pack is Clementine which I love the color scheme and flower back ground on one of the patterned papers in the pack.  I actually cut out some flowers from it for accent this card.  Also used burlap ribbon and studs all from CTMH.  And the "A Friend like you" stamp for the sentiment.  I like the way it turned out and have someone in mind for this card!

Stationary box and Note pads

Here is a Stationary box, a note pad and a post it note holder I  made for my Mom's Bday that is coming up.  I used the Pemberly (retired) paper from Close to my heart.  Love it and sad to see it go!  But of course there are tons of NEW stuff in the new Spring/Summer Idea book.  Take a peek here on my blog on the left.  
All the "templates" for these I found over at Split Coast Stampers under their tutorials.  The monogram Letter C is from the retired Baroque stamp but we have NEW Monogram with Close to my Heart that are Circles! Need to stock up on my favorite letters now!
Here is the box (which I put lots of card in! ) and the note pads.

Mojo Monday Card Sketch

Well this is a card from last weeks sketch over at Mojo Monday.  But I didn't get a chance to post until today.  The paper is retired from Close to my heart and I miss it!! Pemberly is one of my faves!  I am glad this stamp set "Card Word Puzzle" is still available for the flower.  I sponged it and added pearls to the middle.  And I used the " Words of Comfort" stamp set for the sentiment.  This is one of the cards that is going into a Card box I am making for someones birthday coming up............Shhhhh!  It's a surprise!! 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Valentine's Day Card

I struggle with Masculine cards.  Do you?  

Well using Close to my hearts "Studs" and Burlap I was happy with the end result for this card.   I also used all Close to my Heart cardstock.  The patterned paper is from "My Minds Eye" and was a nice background for  my card.  I used a retired stamp from Close to my heart for the stamped image for behind my heart.  The heart I made myself.  I didn't have any chipboard hearts so I used my Cricut to cut out a heart and then put it through my crimper to give it a cardboard look.  The arrows are actually a snowflake punch the I cut to make into the front and back of arrows.  The sentiment Happy Valentine's Day is from a rubber stamp I have had for ages and I used Stampin up punches to put it on.
I am happy with the finished card.  Will you be making a special someone a Valentine's Day card?

Happy Scrappin' & Stampin'!!

You're as Sweet Card

I needed a Thank you card for a friend so I pulled out some "Sweet Cherry" paper from  Glitz Design  to 
go with my Unity Cherry Stamps.  All the card stock is from Close to my heart.  The white paper flower is from Close to my heart as well.  The red Pleat flower is from "Maya Road" to complete the flower.
The inside says "As a bowl of cherries" Thank you!  Simple design that came together quickly but still 
is much appreciated by the receiver!  Hope you are finding time to Create today!!

Retro Sketch Birthday Card

Here's a Birthday card I made using this weeks Retrosketch.    I had alot of fun making this card and as you see "cherries" took over for the theme!

I used the Cherry paper from Glitz Design  and the Cherry brad that was included in my Birds of a Feather January kit.  Card stock all from Close to my heart and so was the "Birthday Wishes stamp".  Other items used: Jillibean soup label, Jenni Bowlin notebook paper, Stampin' Up notebook punch, and swiss dots embossing folder.  I like how it all came together and I couldn't do it with out a Great sketch!
