Card: You Make My Heart Happy

Winter is hanging on this year and keeping me in the house! I don't mind, as I seem to have lots to keep me busy inside, but I decided it was time to make something bright and cheery to balance out the grey skies outside. You could use any bright papers to contrast with the white of this card, and you could use different embossing folders... but here is what I used:
StampHappy Heart Embossing Folders: Happy Thought Z3249 from CTMH and Cricut Moroccan Screen. CardstockWhite Daisy CardstockRuby Cardstock cut to 4.25" x 11", Lemon Cardstock cut to 4" x 5.25" and a decorative paper out of my stash cut to 3.75" x 2.5". (Note: I originally planned on using a piece of Pixie Cardstock, but ended up cutting another piece out of the Lemon Cardstock for the final version of the design.) InkRuby Extras

I'm back! Did you miss me? I've been away from my craft room because I went to Texas to visit my parents. It is a three day experience getting there and a three day trip getting home. I left on the Amtrak on a Wednesday and arrived to their house on Friday. I prefer taking the train over flying, but it does take longer to get there and back again. However, the middle part (the visit) makes it all worth it! Not only did I have a lovely visit with my parents, but my mother is an amazing cook... there was so much good food! I wish you could all taste her gooseberry pie and her lemon meringue pie (and so much more)! Yum!

As soon as I got home we celebrated Easter, then my hubby had his cataract removal surgery. Everything is going well with the recovery, and now (after yesterday's eye doctor visit) I am only having to…

Life has been a bit hectic this last couple of weeks, but I'm not complaining since some of that "busy" is so adorable!


In between regular daily activities, however, I have been having fun in my craft room scrapbooking and card making.

And now here it is, time to think about making Easter cards! I started on a few this evening. I mostly used stamps and watercolors to make them.
Here are the supplies I used on the three Easter cards pictured below:
StampsEaster Basket and Easter Animals CardstockWhite Daisy CardstockBashful Cardstock, Gimme Some Sugar Paper Packet and some very pale blue cardstock I had in my stash. InksBlack Memento Ink, a couple of inks from my Adventure Exclusive Inks Minis, and a couple from my Enchantment Exclusive Inks Minis. Watercolor toolsSmall Round Waterbrush and my CTMH Watercol…

Card: Watercolor Background

I enjoy how watercolor paints move on paper. The liquidity, the organic nature of the outcome, the variety of available color combinations all merge to form a beautiful and relaxing way to create a lovely background for a simple card. No two cards ever come out the same so you can honestly know that the recipient of the card is truly receiving a "one of a kind" piece of art.

There is also something exciting about sitting down to a blank piece of watercolor paper. What will it become? How will the colors merge? Oh the anticipation...


Supplies for this 5" x 5" card "recipe" are:
Base cards: A sheet of White Daisy Cardstock cut into two 5" x 10" each pieces. Card layersWatercolor Paper and White Daisy Cardstock scraps leftover from cutting down the base cards. Watercolor Paints: You can use …

Card: Pinterest Inspiration

Do you ever have those days when you are stuck waiting for the timer to go off on the oven so you pass the time looking at random ideas on Pinterest? That happened to me today while baking a crustless pumpkin pie.

I came across a card on Pinterest and decided to use it for inspiration for my friend's upcoming birthday. I tried to follow the links back to the original card, and the best I can figure out is that my inspiration card is by www.stampstodiefor.com . I certainly want to be sure to give credit to the original designer, even though I modified my design from the one seen on Pinterest.

Normally I give you my "recipe" for my card, but in all honesty, I used assorted supplies I have in my stash, some of which I don't remember where I bought them, so instead let me simply show you what I gathered together …

A blog hop is a friendly circle of artists challenged to design a paper craft using a monthly designated theme or product.

The next step is to visit each other's blogs so we can see what other’s have designed and created using that same theme/product.
