Prima Love Story Sympathy Pocket Card


Hi and welcome!
For today's card I pulled out more of the Prima Love Story collection... the 6x6 paper pad, some of the 12x12, and the ephemera pack. It's all teamed with Echo Park's 6x6 Dots & Stripes Valentines light pink paper and some light pink cardstock. 


The flowers and leaf are from Prima as well.


I used Spellbinder's Oval Floral and classic Circles die sets. The sentiment is from the Altenew Heartfelt Sentiments set.
The weekend's coming up fast... have a great one!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing You a Fast Recovery Pocket Card


Hello there!
I want to share a get well card I created awhile ago with some Bo Bunny papers and Tim Holtz ephemera and mini gears. I cut a couple of the layers with my MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle dies. The larger gear at the bottom right is from Hobby Lobby. It's topped with a TH Hex Fastener. The boy is one of the TH Paper Dolls popped up with foam adhesive. The 78 in the right top corner is a TH Remnant Rub Gilded Accent. The sentiment was stamped with Altenew's Heartfelt Sentiments and Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. I used Metallic Kraft paper for mats. The tag is tied with hand-dyed wool.


Wishing you a great day
and thanks for stopping by!

La Nouvelle Mode Pocket Card


Hello friends!
It's snowing like crazy here. Who can figure out this weather! Is this a faux Spring? I wonder.
To brighten things up I have a pretty pink Thinking of You card created from (again) Prima collections. I have lots of Prima papers and mixing the collections is a breeze. 


The base mat on this card is from an oldie call Reflections. I can't even remember the whole of it, but I have several sheets of this text and dotted paper which I love. So I apparently stocked up on this. Patting myself on the back for that wise forethought. LOL!!!


I sprinkled Simon Says Stamp Gelato Confetti Sequins here and there using only the clear and pink from the gorgeous mix of pastel colors. I glued those down with Tim Holtz Multi Matte Medium. I buy the small squeeze bottle for this. If I put too much down, it dries clear with no gloss so you can't tell I messed up on it.


The flowers are by Prima. The stamp set I used for the sentiment is Altenew's Thinking of You.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Spring Market Birthday Pocket Card


Hello and welcome!
I have a birthday pocket card to show today made from the wonderful Carta Bella Spring Market collection. I originally got these papers in the March 2018 Choose Joy Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. I loved them so much I then bought the some of the 12x12 sheets and the 6x6 paper pad.


For embellishments, I used flowers from Prima and I Am Roses plus clear confetti by Pretty Pink Posh.


I added a row of narrow white cotton trim and a little gold glitter paper.
This is such a cheery paper collection... great for birthday, thank you or get well cards. You'll probably be seeing a lot more of it on my blog in the feature.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello there and thanks for stopping by!
We've lovely weather here so maybe you are having the same. I've been making lots of birthday cards lately. Here's one made with a mix of Prima papers and flowers, and featuring Lavender, my absolute favorite collection right now.


I added two of my precious Tennessee wood butterflies and some champaign half pearls.


I used Alterations Thinlits Stitched Circles to make the frame and MFT's Die-namics Stitched Rectangles for the mat.


The flowers are from two different Prima collections.

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Special Moments Birthday Pocket Card


Hello and welcome! I hope you're having a good day!
My card for today is a birthday pocket card featuring the Prima Lavender collection. The base is from the 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk collection which is one of my favorites from a few years back. Because of the gray boards, it went perfectly with the gray tones of the Lavender papers. My bird was stamped and die-cut using Hero Arts Spoken Bird sets from their My Monthly Hero February 2018 Kit. I used Ranger's Archival Shadow Gray ink and my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform which made it possible for me to get the deeper color on the bird.


I used some tulle and pearl trim from my stash along with Prima and I Am Roses flowers and leaves. A Sizzix tiny tag die-cut stamped with Happy Birthday and tied with ivory burlap string is tucked into the arrangement.


For a little shine, I added a mat of purple glittered corrugate to the Special Moments image.

I'm so glad you stopped by!

U.S. Army Air Forces Birthday Pocket Card


Hello and Happy Monday!
This U.S. Army Air Forces pocket card is a combination of an Authentique retro image along with several Bo Bunny papers. I love shifting through all my paper collections looking for what will go with what... and these worked just fine together.


For florals I combined I Am Roses leaves and tiny rosebuds in white and red with teastained Petaloo daliahs in navy and white. I created a tiny tag using a Sizzix die and a Scrappy Cats Birthday clear stamp with Archival Jet Black ink. I tied it with ivory burlap string.


I added a couple of filigree corner pieces...


and Tim Holtz metallic rub-on stars. I've been using a lot of his rub-ons lately... they're great for filling in dead space. For my sentiment tag, I found some blue wrinkled seam binding that matched my mat to a T. Happy dance!!!
