Woodgrain – One Layer Card

29 Apr
This is the 4 card set that I made for my aunt.  I totally cased this card from The Kraft Room blog that was showcased on K. Werner’s Blog the other day for her card challenge.  I drew inspiration from this card.  I didn’t have the new PTI dies or stamps but I did have some nestie dies that I used.
This is what the entire card looks like.   So what do you think?
Supplies used:
Stamps:  SU! Woodgrain Bkgrd, PTI-New Leaf, Mega Mixed Messages, Signature Greetings.
Paper:  Kraft CS from Local SBS.
Ink:  Chalk Ink – Chestnut Roan, PTI – New Leaf and Vintage Cream.
Accessories:  Nesties dies, White Gel Pen.
Have a wonderful day!

Butterfly fancy

10 Apr

I used my Cricut Expression and my Sure Cuts A Lot software to cut this butterfly card.  I used the uber yummy American Crafts – Dear Lizzy Collection paper.  They have a awesome package of crochets flowers too….yummy stuff. 

I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Many Blessings,

Mary

Thinking of You

29 Mar

I had fun making this card.  Vintage Picnic stamp set is sooo cool!  I stamped the basket  repeatedly with versamark ink on the Kraft CS and clear embossed the basket in the bottom right hand corner and colored it in with my Copics and white gel pen.  I am not totally sold on the yellow and blue color, next time I want to use red, white and blue. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I have had some “cold germs” try to bother me.  UGH! 

Well I hope everyone is doing well.  Blessing to you!

Good morning!  I cut the clouds with my cricut experssion and stamped PTI’s Scattered Showers onto some uber yummy Fabriano Medioevalis Italian stationary.   The paper has rough tooth to it and reminds me of watercolor paper.  It’s great to watercolor on.   I did my card plain and simple.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a great week!

Many Blessings,

Mary

And you are, All of my blogging friends are a blessing!   Isn’t this just the cutest paper you’ve ever seen?  Cosmo Cricket – Material Girl.  Uber Yummy stuff, I tell ya.
PTI and Crafty Secrets meets Cosmo Cricket.  Love how it turned out.

I am sooo Grateful for many things.  Most of all to God for his unwaivering love and faithfulness.   We had an awesome church service today!  We had many people recieve the Holy Ghost and it was awesome! 

Ok onto the Deets for this card.  It is more Cosmo Cricket paper and PTI stamps.   Simple and sweet.  Love it!

I love the Vintage Picnic basket stamp set from PTI….soooo cool!  (IRL the purples matach better than they look in the photo.)  

I made a 4 bar size card.  They are so tiny to me compared to the normal A2 cards that I create.  I clear embossed PTI text background on the card and colored the main image with my Copics.

Things have been crazy around here, my mom had to go to Washington state and be with my Grandpa.  My mom said that Grandpa was so excited to see my Mom and my Aunt Kathy.  That makes my heart so very warm and happy to hear that!

Anyways….so thing have been a little crazy and I’ll get back to regular postings soon.  I have lots of cards to share with you. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Many Blessings,

Card Trio

26 Feb

I totally “cased” this card idea from Debbie of Thinking InkingDebbie is totally brilliant, and I’m not just saying that.  She is truly one of the best of the best in the card industry.  So I drew inspiration from this card…..HERE.

I made this trio of cards for a family member for her Birthday.  Too fun!  

I found an awesome book that eveyone must read and I’ll share that you with you either tomorrow or early next week.

Blessings to you!

I don’t think I’ve posted this card yet, if I have I am sorry…..  I think the chair stamp is sooo cute, it’s from Paper Trey Ink.   I used some of the uber yummy Cosmo Cricket, Early Bird paper.

I don’t have a lot of time…so blessings to you!

 I think the On My Couch set from Paper Trey Ink is just adorable!  You’ll be seeing more and more of these cards as time goes on.
I used some Christmas October Afternoon paper that I had in my stash, some vintage crochet lace, creamy white silk ribbon from May Arts, the Fancy Florishes stamp set from Paper Trey Ink, Labels 1 die and my Making Memories Corner Chomper.  Too fun!
I loved coloring in the couch with my Copics, it was very theraputic.   I am learning to shade and add light…and it’s getting easier and easier as I continue to practice, so that’s a bonus!
Again I don’t have a lot to say….
Blessings and Have a great day!

Encouragment

15 Feb

Our fast is almost done.  It doesn’t seem like I have been fasting at all from the internet, when you look at my blogging.  But we have done the Media fast and will continue to do so.  I love the once a week movie and video game life.  It’s been good for all of us.  The boys thought and still think they’ll die! LOL!!!  But they won’t.

I made this card for Samuel as a small gift of encouragement.  I used the Top Ten stamp set from Paper Trey Ink.  I will be making a stack of these cards in the near future to keep on hand for my boys.  Everyone needs to have the gift of encouragment given to them.

I want to continually give them the gift of encouragement.  About 10 plus years ago, I came accross a CD and book that is called, Silver Boxes, by Florence Litthauer.  If you haven’t heard this CD you need to run out and purchase it!  (FYI- I am in no way affliated with Florence Litthauer or the website link…I am just an avid supporter of this message.)  Well it has been a good 7 plus years since I heard this message and during prayer one day, the Lord brought this message to mind.  I had been praying about ways to communicate to my children the importance of not using our words to hurt each other.  I call those words, Garbage Words, you know the type like, I don’t like you, I hate you, your aweful, you can’t do_____(fill in the blank.) very well, and each word is dripping with sarcasm.

You may be reading this and saying to yourself…well that’s just how kids and siblings are and I would agree with you to a certain extent.  My boys don’t swear or use offensive, obscene language…but they do use their words to cut each other down. And in our home that is completely unexceptable.  

So one night I was beyond frustrated!  I pray often for God to guide me in all areas of my life and especially in raising my boys.  And that’s when the Lord reminded me of this CD.  (Thank you Jesus!) When I heard this message 10 plus years ago it was on cassette and I couldn’t find that cassette tape any where. (It wouldn’t of mattered anyways, becuase all we have are CD players.  The boom boxes (what we use to call them. Boy am I dating myself!) these days completely omit the cassette portion, they only play CD’s.   So, I googled and found a place to purchase the CD.  Click here.

You will be beyond encouraged in listening to this message.  It is from Eph. 4:29

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.  

Basically it comes down to letting our words be like little Silver Boxes with bows on top.  Give encouraging words and don’t knock others peoples blocks down.  But the way Florence Litthauer delivers this message is beyond real and soooo funny!

I wish I could borrow my copy out to all of you….but I can’t…

Ok….enough…..LOL!

Blessings to you and thanks for stopping by.  I have lots of cards to share with you…so keep checking back.
