Golden Anniversary card …

My neighbor is celebrating her parent’s golden anniversary this week and she asked if I could make her a special card. Here is the card I made for her.

I love how soft and elegant this turned out – quite unintentional actually. The background images were cut out from one of the Webster’s Pages journaling cards. Main stamped image is from Ippity stamps on Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Ovals and embossed flower is diecut and embossed using Sizzix Embosslit flower die and colored using Pebbles chalk pencils. Flower center is from Hero Arts. Gold ribbon is from May Arts.

I also used this card for my I Heart {Ippity} creative team post. Incidentally, this is my last week as guest designer with I Heart {Ippity} and I had a blast creating, learning and getting inspired with this creative team. Thank you very much Heather and the rest of the creative team for the awesome and fun opportunity. I will be around regularly to support your work.


Geometric Clean and Simple Card

I do love linear lines and I do love clean and simple cards but I’m wondering why have I not used a geometric image on a card before? There is always a 1st and here is the card that I made for I Heart {Ippity} this week.

This is a one layer card. It took me about 2 days and about 20 different sketches to come up with this design but about 10 minutes to put it together. All the stamps are from the “A Moment in Time” Ippity set. I did have to use a stamp positioner to make sure the rectangles are aligned. The butterfly is from Daydream Creation and the gems are from Hero Arts.

Have a great Monday …

My 1st I Heart {Ippity} Guest Design Post

Hello Everyone,

This month I will be the guest designer for I Heart {Ippity}. You will see my work featured every Friday in August at I Heart {Ippity} and all the fun things you can create using {Ippity} Stamps. They are just adorably fun and trendy stamps to use and I will be using the “A Moment in Time” set – great for cardmaking and also for scrapbooking.


I made this happy happy card just to say Hi.


Background of card was embossed with Spellbinders Impressibilities “butterfly”, green label was die cut from Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 14, kraft label was die cut from Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Small, Ribbon is from American Craft and sentiment is from a very old Scabble set that I salvage from a yard sale.

Thanks for checking out my card.
