I couldn't wait to work on this card. I had gone to Michael's a couple of days ago and decided to buy some washi tape and try my hand at making a card with it. I normally use patterned design paper so this was really a different approach to getting some background pattern on my card.
I decided to make a Valentine card that I needed as a swap card in one of the card groups I belong to. I thought the washi tape added a nice pattern for my background. It's always fun trying something new when making cards!
Here are the products used to make my Valentine.

MFT - Blueprints #29 Die-namics
SU - Cute Converse stamp set
Spellbinders - Classic Hearts Dies
SU - Silver Glimmer Paper
SU - Pink Passion & Basic Black card stock
Washi Tape - assorted
Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots embossing folder
Silver Cord Ribbon
Miscellaneous circle punches

Until next time...

JOY 2017

This is the Christmas card I made to send out this year. It's not my typical style of card, but I really like it, along with the navy blue card stock it was made with.
I wouldn't have been able to make this card without the help of my MISTI. I needed a clear, sharp image and MISTI was up to the task with all of the multiple times the stamp had to be re-inked to get a nice dark, clean image on so many cards. Here are the products used to make my card.

SU - Very Vanilla & Night of Navy card stock
SU - Joyful Nativity stamp set
Sunny Studios - Holiday Style stamp set
SU - Night of Navy ink
VersaMark ink
Gold embossing powder
Gold cording

I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful Christmas, and a safe, healthy, happy new year!

Until next time...

Here is the card I made for challenge #109 over at Kitty Bee Designs, Aloha Challenge in December. The adorable kitty image is from one of the sponsors of the challenge, Kadoodle Bug Designs. The image is called Cute Kitty Christmas.
I've been wanting to use the MFT Die-namics called Stitched Scallop Basic Edges and thought that it would be perfect for my card. It sets this little kitty with the bowl of Christmas cookies off perfectly!  The other products that were used for my card were...

Spellbinders - Holiday Dies
Memory Box - Twinkling Snowflake Duet Die
SU - Silver Glimmer Paper
SU - Garden Green Card Stock
SU - Kraft Card Stock
American Crafts - DP from the Marquee Love Collection
Copics - Various Colors

Unfortunately, my picture doesn't show the beautiful sparkle of the twinkling snowflakes on the card, but this SU Glimmer Paper really has a wonderful sparkle to it! It's my favorite glitter paper I've ever used.

Until next time...

Once in a while, I like making something other than a card when stamping. One of the other crafty things I really like doing is cross-stitch. Using a new Die-namic from MFT, called Cross-Stitch Tag, was the perfect combination for me!

Sunny Studio - Mug Hugs stamp set
Recollections - Snowflake embellishment
Paper Flair - DP from the Christmas Brights Collection

3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Copics -Various colors
Loops and Threads - Cord thread used to stitch the background on the left tag

Until next time...
