Wonderful Words cards

Today I have a trio of cards that were made using the Wonderful Word: Holiday dies and the Waltzingmouse Stamps set, Say it Loud: Holiday. A great combination!


I die cut each word onto the card fronts, and then lined the inside with patterned paper. I glued each little bit (i.e. the piece in the middle of "e")back into place after the paper was adhered down.


They are simple and easy to mail! I debated about stamping something more on each, like snowflakes, but then decided to leave them as is.


Slowly adding more cards to the stack! Thanks for coming by!

Snowy days, Frosty nights and Warm Hearts

I'm back for a quick post tonight with my card for this week's Make It Monday. The technique is Layered Background with Sentiment Stamps.


I followed the same color scheme that Betsy used, but switched out the stamps for those from In the Meadow. The sentiment is from Made of Snow, and I also used some snowflakes from Rustic Snowflakes for the background.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday

Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Today is the 7th Card Caravan Challenge over at The Hybrid Chick and this week the theme is "make it sparkle"! Here's my card:


Coincidentally, I made a card also celebrating seven for my son's friend with her upcoming birthday. The card uses digital papers from the Sophia Paper Pack by Karen Lewis Designs. It also uses By the Number Die collection, Double Ended Banner die and Limitless Layers Dies by Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is from Enjoy the Ride, Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for taking a look, and I hope you'll play along!

Joy and Merry Christmas

Happy Thanksgiving eve to my friends in the US and good evening to the rest!
I hope everyone is having a great week.

I was able to finally play around with my new WMS sets, Nordic Winter and Say It Loud Holiday. I'm in love! I heat embossed the backgrounds with clear detail embossing powder onto Royal Velvet cardstock.


I also used Silver Shimmer cardstock, and cut the snowflake with PTI's Damask Snowflake die.


This card also uses Smokey Shadow and Soft Stone cardstock.

Thanks for taking a look!

Life and a challenge card

Hello readers!

I hope some of you are still around...I know I haven't been posting much at all lately. I have been making some projects here and there like birthday invites for a customer, some Christmas cards, but life has gotten very busy since school started again for my kids. I joined a gym in September and have been faithfully working out as much as possible. I even ran my first 5K last Sunday and loved it! I've lost 22 pounds in the last 8 weeks and plan to keep going. Hopefully, I'll be able to find some more time for crafting and writing blog posts.

I do have a card today, though, for the latest Card Caravan challenge which is birthdays.


I used some gorgeous digital papers and frame from a collab kit called My Digital Obsession . The stamps come from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Say it Loud and Say it Loud Holiday.

Check out the challenge here .

Hope you're having a great weekend!
