Sycamore Street

I really wasn't thrilled with the Sycamore Street paper when I fist saw it in the SAB flier, but once I had it in my hand I just fell in love. I have used it so much and I keep ordering it every time my order qualities for a free item!

Below is a birthday card I made using the Sycamore Street DSP.

Colors Used:

Sycamore Street DSP

Mixed Bunch Stamp Set

Summer Starfruit Stitched Ribbon

Fancy Fan Embossing Folder

Easter Blessings

Easter is upon us! It just so happens that my sons birthday lands on Easter Sunday so there will be double the celebration. :-)
 I just love the Easter blessings wood block stamp that is in the new Stampin'UP! Sprig catty. Simple but still elegant, you can do a lot with a phase stamp like this.

One of the ladies in my stamp club has asked about heat embossing. So we will be making this card for our club party on Thursday. I love everything texture and dimension. On this card I have used heat embossing for the Easter Blessings sentiment, folder embossing with sizzix, and of course tons of dimensionals to pop everything from the flowers to the apothecary framelit.

Colors used:

Best of Everything Stamp Set


Apothecary Framelits

Here is a set of 2 congrats cards. I can't take credit for the sketch though.
 I cased the layout from here.

A Few Adjustments

I made a few adjustments to the stamp club card to make a set of six sympathy cards.

I just love this layout and I love how the simple edges of such a cheap embellishment as the paper doilies add the right touch pop and prettiness.

Stamp Club Happy Day Card Project

This card was a big hit to make at my last Stamp Club.

Tea Shoppe Cards

A set of 6 thank you cards...

I had left over scraps after creating the 6 cards. I turned the scraps into this 2min card. No need to be wasteful or add to my already overflowing disorganized scrap stash! =)

Random Valentine Cards

A friend needed Valentine Cards for her grand kids. Instead of getting them at the store she wanted handmade ones, and asked if I could help with that. Of course I can. And I loved the challenge of 7 different sketches. (3 boys & 4 girls)
Here are a few of what I came up with...

Children's Ministry Greeting Cards

I was so honored to be asked to create the greeting cards that our children's ministry at the church gives out. I wanted to share them with you. It is such a treat to create cards that are for kids and most assuredly a challenge to keep it gender neutral!

The Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set and Framelits Bundle was used for the above card.

This is a "thank you for visiting card." For this one card I can not take credit for the design. I cased it from this very talented paper crafter.

This next  photo is of a simple box I made to hold the cards.
