Grey Skies No More

Happy Friday Everyone!  I saw this Cloud cover up die from My Favorite Things and knew what I had to do with it.  I so love dies that cover a card front (see yesterday's post!).  Is this not cute and fabulous?

First I cut Smokey Slate (SU) cardstock with the die-namics cloud cover up (MFT) die. Then I cut white stamper's select (PTI) cardstock with the cloud die again.  I glued the Smokey Slate to a piece of Basic Grey (SU) cardstock and put the white clouds into the holes.  Then I stamped the sentiment from MFT blue skies stamp set on the front.  The sun is Yo Yo Yellow (SU) and the die spring showers from Lawn Fawn.  The smile is from the bowl of soup in the stamp set On the Mend by Lawn Fawn.  Looks more complicated than it really is. - Heidi

March is full of birthdays for me.  Mine was the 16th.  Two of my friends and my sister's birthday are on the 23rd.  Here are the cards I sent to them.

The above cards use a stamp set called Humorous Birthday from Inkadinkado.  The Designer Series Paper DSP is from Stampin Up and is called Watercolor Wonder.  The pennants dies are actually banners framelits dies from Stampin Up. - Heidi

Now for Something different.

I finally finished the mints in my Altoid tin.  What do I do with it now?  Enter Pintrest.  I didn't make anything super cool or collage like, but this will have to suffice.

This is the front of the tin.  I made this for my friend Karen.  Sorry, it's blurry.

The inside uses a stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Love You S'More.  Just something cute and fun.  
Enjoy - Heidi

Let It Go!

We bought a Frozen Castle at Goodwill for my husband's niece and she was kind enough to give the box back to me.  I made this 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" card from a picture on the box.  The word birthday is stamped and embossed and I believe the stamp is from Papertrey Ink.  The die is also from Papertrey Ink and is called One-liners: Happy Die.

Not too shabby for a recycled card.  While you are enjoying this Frozen card why not revisit my Olaf Easter card. - Heidi

Maggie Holmes Camera

I made this card a while ago, but never shared it.  The dies is from Maggie Holmes Styleboard collection.  I am not sure where the paper is from or the Starburst die.  If I can find out I will try to fill in the blanks. - Thanks for looking! Heidi

October Afternoon Love

To say I am smitten with October Afternoon is an understatement!  I love the vintage look and collage appeal of their products.  So cute!

This first card is a whopping 5 1/2" X 7 3/4".  With the envelope punch board plus these envelope templates from Paper Source my cards can be the size they need to be and not be limited to an A2.  The paper is from October Afternoon the Public Library collection. The dies are stitched rectangles from Lawn fawn. A doily I had laying around (I wish it was cream color, but what are you going to do) and Mini Market stickers from October Afternoon's Farm Girl collection.  The kid in balloon is from Public Library.  I was so thrilled with my card as It is collage-like and I am NOT good at that so I left it out on my table to admire.  Unfortunately it fell onto an inked stamp and ruined the card.  If you look by the M and in front of his binoculars you can see stray purple ink! Not very bright, but unless you are really looking you'd probably miss it.  Oh well.

I originally cut that crazy letter and alphabet paper bigger, but it didn't fit on the front of anything so I had to cut it down.  What I was left with was this frame.  Fits perfectly on the from of an A2 card.  A little long retired Ruby Red cardstock from Stampin' Up, a sticker from Public Library and a sentiment from Tim Holtz Phrases 2 and you have this next card.

I also love the line Rocket Age from October Afternoon.  I would love to get my hands on an 8 X 8 pad of this paper, but I can't find it anywhere.  The kid is adorable and in space so of course I had to make a shaker card!  This card is 5" X 6 1/4".  Shaker cards are a pain in the butt, but he is definitely worth it!  I only wish I'd given him something to say! - Heidi

Two Birthday Cards & No Stamping!

Two years ago I won a card contest and with it a big 'ol prize pack.  In that prize pack I got a set of Simple Stories SN@P! Insta Squares & Pieces - Birthday.  See the picture below.

Lots of neat little embellishments for scrapbooking.  Alas, I don't scrapbook - I make cards.  So here is what I made with the above embellishments.  No stamping required - GASP!

What can I do with the rest of those embellishments?  Only time will tell - stay tuned! - Heidi

Late Christmas cards

Here are some more cards that I made but never posted.  I wish I could tell you who made the paper, but I don't remember.  If you know, please let me know.  On one 12 X 12 sheet there were 12 different rectangles and I made 12 cards from them.  Here they are.

I found it!  The paper is from Pink Paislee's Snow Village collection.  See the end of this post for the piece of paper I used to make all 12 of these cards.

And the 12 X 12 journaling card paper that I made all of these cards from.

Thanks for looking and have a great day! - Heidi

Late Halloween fun

I made these cards for Halloween, but never posted them.  I will try to fill in the blanks as to what manufacturer, etc as I figure it out!  Thanks for understanding.

The above card uses a die from Frantic Stamper called Witch Riding Broom and can be found here.

The next three cards use paper from My Mind's Eye and can be found here. No need to embellish as the glitter is already on the paper. Super easy to make these cards!


And last, but not least a card that uses Stampin' Up paper called Motley Monsters.  I never bought the paper.  This is actually the bottom of a page in a magazine that comes to demonstrators called Stampin' Success.  The letters are cut from Sizzix dies called Little Letters Thinlits Die also available from Stampin' Up. Have a Fabulous Day - Heidi

Vintage card

Just when I thought I was done blogging I had to share this fabulous card!  I saw this vintage clasp at my local Goodwill and instantly knew that I NEEDED to make a card with this gal!

Here is the vintage clasp:

And here is the card I made using the advertisement above:

The sentiment is from Bountiful Banners by Papertrey Ink.  Pretty neato - Heidi
