Girls and boys assortment

I took the picture of these the other day with the mouse card, again the lighting wasn't great. This is something that I am just willing to deal with because I am atleast creating and getting photo's. Somedays will be better than others.  ;-)  
This is Feminine Charms a very old set that I love for girl cards. The hat is just darling in the set. A few base layers of paper and floral paper. Wrapped some twine and button bow for the corner. A few pearls and sparkle to finish.

A Z-fold card for this one, which I have not done in a long time. Added a die cut edge to the two edges and some flowers that a friend made me years ago. Top it off with some pearls. 

How about some guy cards using My Guy Ian I think he was called. Rather fun set of young men. Textured the base on this one to match is shirt and some plaid designer paper. A few more brads used up and the sentiment along the right. 

Another simple one more brads used up and a few scrap panels and sentiment. Notice the easy peasy cards as I try to get back into the groove again. I am just so happy to be coloring and enjoying it all again. 

Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by.

Mouse assortment

Grabbed these furry guys for an assortment of cards. Lighting wasn't great but I was able to get photos  so here I go. This first one I cut the image down a little to fit on a 5x5 card. Easy layers and some faux stitching around the image panel. Added some brads and some sparkles to the berries. 

This next one I stamped the sentiment along the right side with some designer paper down the left. A few more brads and yes more sparkle. 

I giggle at this one because he has that little smile of up to no good. hee hee  Textured background to match the scrap designer paper at the base. Some added sparkles and brads.

My mini daffodils came up great this year, I was super happy. I have such a brown thumb and when they actually bloom I am happy. Thought about coloring up these daffodils in the honor of them actually surviving. haha 

My first one is rather simple with some swiss dots embossed backing. My thank you sentiment across the bottom and some more brads. Added some sparkle as well. 

This one a little more simple with an embossed backing and a small strip of color. The blue flowers did not turn out like I planned so I had to color them in which was frustrating but such is crafting at times. More brads and some sparkle. Voila! Have a great day.

Lavender Camillas

These two cards are using Simply Camilla's which is another all time favorite flower. I know the clear stamp is not longer available but I think that Power Poppy does have the digital versions available. My first card has a spellbinder die across the bottom of the base layer. Added an embossed leaf to the lavender piece. Colored with Copics and added some sparkles and more of the brads as I might as well use them. 

This one frustrated me a bit as the green on the leaves didn't color like I wanted, oh well. Die cut tag for the behind panel with ribbon and lace trim wrapped around. More of the flourished pearls and some sparkle. I do like cutting out around the flowers though. My favorite part on this card was popping those up after cutting around the edges. Awwww... Have a great day!

Sunflower smiles

Holy cow two posts in the same year, I am off to a great start then. ha ha  This is a really old one called Autumn Blessings I think? Really old but I do like the image. A little bit of sparkle and might as well use up some brads since I have a million of these things. 

Next is a sunflower from Heartfelt creations and I totally forgot the name of this one. I liked the bumblebee designer paper with this one. Added sparkles and some die cut heart to the bottom. 

Same stamp but only used a portion of the image. Lots of these flourished pearls in my stash so added those and some ribbon. Another easy peasy set of cards. Thanks for stopping by.

Creating again

Good morning. Been awhile since I posted on the blog or even created much. Life has been exciting and busy, which is positive.  My crafting has taken a back seat but hoping to revive it once again. Over the last few weeks I colored and created the below. Forgive me for not putting links and such. I am just happy to get something posted. :-) 

This first one was using Bountiful Blessings. Stamped the sentiment along the side panel and some designer paper down the left side. Sparkles and such was added but hard to see in the picture. 

Birthday card using Fly Guy. Man do I need to work on a few things, rusty! ;-)  Simply wrapped some twine around the base layers and sparkle added to the water. 

This is using Tiger Lily Xl, still one of my favorite flowers. Top layer is popped up for dimensional. Faux stitched border around the edge. Sparkles of course on the petals.

Several baby cards needed for the coming week. Using several stamps from Crafters Companion. Older die cuts from a company no longer in business. Faux stitching around the edges and some sparkles. 

Another this one a boy card. Same info just different colors. 

I have to say my favorite baby one that I created using this guy from Whimsy Stamps. He just makes me smile. Added ribbon, some more sparkles and dies. 
Well hopefully I won't wait a year to post again. But for now, hope you are doing well and God is being a blessing to you! Have a great day.
