Sending LOVE!

Image
Hello, I am joining Shauna over at Ink to Paper for a challenge.  The challenge is to create a sending love card. I used the Farmers Market Floral stamp and die set along with the Border Bling: tin stitched die and the Border Bling: skinny diagonals frame die. The sentiment is from Merry Mugs and XOXO.  The love is layered 3 times.   Have a great day and stay safe! Nancy

Melissa's Fab Friday Feature Challenge, January 2021!

Hello friends, hope you are all doing well! Everything is good here. Once again I am joining Melissa on her Fab Friday Feature on the Ink To Paper blog.  The challenge is to create a heart card. So I created 2 cards, same stamp set just different colors. The stamp sets I used are from ITP/PTI, they are Lift Me Up and You Have My Heart. I also used the Nesting Basics: pierced rectangle die.  For the background I did use a cloud stencil and that is from My Favorite Things. I glittered one side of the balloons.  Thanks for stopping by and stay safe! Nancy

A Happy Anniversary, 2021!

Image
Hello friends! Hope you are all doing well! My mother-in-law's anniversary is coming up so I made a few cards and thought I would share them with you.  I started by stamping Orchid Expressions stamp set on white cardstock using the inks raspberry fizz, amethyst allure, royal velvet, hawaiian shores and tropical teal on the above card. Below is hawaiian shores, tropical teal and royal velvet. After stamping these gorgeous colors I used the Border Bling: Tin Stitched die to add some detail. I cut a vellum heart with the Limitless Layers 2 1/4" hearts die and a white cardstock heart using Limitless Layers: heart stitches die.  The embossed sentiment is from Inside & Out Love stamp set.  I added glitter around the edge of the heart to give it more sparkle. I stamped a few hearts on the inside and the envelope using You Have My Heart stamp set.  All the stamps, inks and dies are by PTI/ITP.  Thanks for stopping by and stay healthy! Nancy

Ink to Paper Challenge, January 2021!

Image
Hello again, friends!  I am joining in on another challenge from Ink to Paper!   The challenge is to create a with love card and the guest designer is Shauna! I choose to use the stamp and die set called Branches of Love.  I used the Border Bling: skinny hearts frames die to frame the vase and branches. On both cards I embossed the sentiment on the background of the card and on the vase, I used a piece of clear cardstock to help me line them up. The inks I used are pale peonies, pure poppy, olive twist and versafine black with clear embossing powder. The hearts are glittered and I added some clear sequins. Thanks for stopping by and stay safe! Nancy    

Matthew's 30th birthday, 2021!!!

Image
Hello friends! We celebrated our son, Matthew's 30th birthday! Time goes by so fast!  I used the Sing a Song of Christmas stamp and die set. I do wish that there was a guitar in the set, but no luck with that.  The Border Bling: skinny hearts frames is one of my favorites so I had to use it on this card!  I used it with dark indigo cardstock and the designer paper is from 3 piece suit. Those musical notes are so fun to add as an extra detail on the card and envelope. Below on the inside of the card I added some hearts from You Have My Heart stamp set and I hand wrote a sentiment.  Thanks and stay healthy and safe! Nancy

An Amaryllis thank you!

I am so much enjoying the new Border Bling: Skinny Hearts Frames!  They are so fun and an easy accent on your card.  I decided to highlight the Amaryllis stamp and die set, such a gorgeous flower! Pattern paper and all are from Papertrey Ink/Ink to Paper.   Have a great day, thanks for stopping in! Nancy

Create a Valentine card challenge, December 2020!

Image
Hello friends,  I am joining Shauna over at Ink to Paper blog for a challenge.  We are to create a Valentine card! I used the limitless layers 2 1/4" heart die to make the accordion style heart with designer paper. I die cut 8 hearts and glued each side to the one next to it and then attaching it to the card. The embossed sentiment is from you are loved stamp set and the small hearts are from you have my heart stamp and die set. Around the outer edge of the card I used the pierced feature frames rectangle die to add a little more detail. I did try using pearls instead of sequins but the sequins won.  Thanks for stopping by and stay safe! Nancy
