Just a little something...

I have been wanting to get a stamp with my name and logo on it, for stamping the backs of my cards. Actually I've thought about it for quite some time now. I guess I've just been too lazy to order one. I can get one locally for under $10, so it's not the cost. I just need to do it. So, in the meantime I created some digital ones.I printed them on sticker paper, punched them out and when I need one I'll just peel and stick. I also created some for my daughter and then made this cute little bandaid box for her to keep them in. I hope she likes it!

Decorative paper is by Stampin' Up. I used a leaf punch by EK Success, and the heart cutout was a free cutting file. I used part of her sticker I made and popped it up with a dimensional. I like how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by.

No More Snow ...Please!

I definitely live in the wrong state for someone who hates snow and cold. We have had a ton dumped on us in the past 24 hours and more predicted for next week. And cold? Oh my....about 9 (yes I said 9) degrees here. It will probably dip below zero later tonight the weather man predicts. I am so ready for Spring already. I hibernated in my craft room today and was searching to find something 'spring like' to lift my mood. So...I made the cute card below, with a little snow lady I colored months ago. Yes, I know she is made of snow, but she has spring like blossoms on her hat so that counts.

The stamp is actually a paint pattern from a book that I've had from my painting days. I can't remember the artists name but will post it later when I find it. The lacy mat behind the stamp was created on my cutting machine. The leafy embellishment is a Cuttlebug diecut and the rose I made myself.

I also needed to add to my Valentine stash too so I created 2 more cards. The first I've seen on the web and I've been wanting to try it. So I used a cute scroll design from Silhouette and cut it on my die cutting machine. I added punched hearts from red glittery paper and added a red ribbon.

I just loved making this next robot card with his chocolate candy tummy. I wrapped his tummy in pink patterned paper and added a punched glitter heart. The robot is a cutting file from Silhouette. Isn't he just too cute?

Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe and warm this weekend.

Whooooo loves you

With Valentine's Day just around the corner I am posting my first Valentine's Day card creation. I received a new digital cutter for Christmas and I'm having a blast learning how to use it. This cute owl was cut from a Silhouette die I purchased on line and I love how versatile he will be. I have idea's for Fall, Summer and Spring cards too, and owls are so popular right now. You see them everywhere on the web. The white border is also from a die cut file and the papers used are all from Stampin' Up. The bow and glittery brads are from my stash. Have a good Sunday.
