SR #312 – One Layer Cards

Hello again friends! I am on my way home from an amazing weekend with the high school youth from church but never like missing the fun of stamping! So, it’s time for a super fun challenge over at Stampin’ Royalty. This week we get to make one layer cards! I love how challenging this really is, because you want it to be WOW but that is harder than it seems when you are limited to only one layer.
My card:
I knew the Botanicals for You set would be perfect for this! I love how big and bold the greeting is. The entire card is done in the 2014-2016 In Colors. I want to play with these as much as I can before they disappear later this year. There are tiny rhinestones on the center of each flower but they are a big hard to see in this photo. Sorry about that!!
I would love to challenge you to make a card using only one layer and then email me a copy of it or leave it as a comment over on my Facebook Business page.
I am so glad that you stopped by today.  You can subscribe to my blog on the right and never miss another post. I love blog love in the form of a comment, so please let me know what you think of this project!

A Wintery Card

Happy Monday! I cannot believe it is the last day of November! This month went to fast!
Guess What!?! I was chosen as a Goddess Pick last week at Stampin’ Royalty! I am so honored and excited to be chosen! Thank you SR!
This week’s Stampin’ Royalty Challenge was to create a winter themed card.
The weather here in Idaho is sure feeling like winter and it made doing a winter themed card easy peasy for me.
This photo really does not do the card the justice it deserves. In person the colors blend so much better and the glitter on the trees is so so sparkly.  I took quite a few trying to capture it all, but alas it wasn’t happening for me today! 
At first this card was going to be a Christmas card but then I realized that the sentiment was really quite appropriate for the Season of Winter and that made me giggle! I am so goofy sometimes.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. You can subscribe to my blog on the right and never miss another post. I love blog love in the form of a comment, so please let me know what you think of this card!

A reason for the season

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are having a great holiday weekend. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and much food was eaten. Friday I did some Black Friday shopping with my favorite teenager and today I had a great day helping people create adorable gift packaging for the holidays.
I have a card to share with you today. This card was created for the SSInk Challenge and it is my first time participating with them. I love the mystery challenge we were given for the week. 

My card:

This stamp set is so easy to use and in my opinion has the best sentiments ever! I stamped the outline in the Stazon ink, stamped the flowers with Real Red, the petals with Pear Pizaaz and then blended each of those colors with a blender pen. I love the soft, watercolor look this set has. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today. You can subscribe to my blog on the right and never miss another post. You can also leave me some blog lovin’ in the form of a comment and let me know what you think of my card.

ICS Blog Hop – Butterflies are Free!

Welcome hoppers to the July edition of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! Welcome to those of your who have arrived here from Claudia’s Blog – didn’t you just love her card! If you arrived here all on your own – we are so glad to have you!
Our theme this month is Butterflies! Stampin’ Up! offers us quite a few choices in this area and is one of my most favorite images!
The card I have made for you this month is using the gorgeous stamp set Butterfly Basics and the coordinating Framelit. This is one of the wonderful bundles carried over from our Occasions Catalog and I could not be happier. I just adore this bundle. This card design will work in so many color combinations and with just a change of sentiment, can be used for so many different occasions. I love the muted colors on the cardstock so that the large butterfly image can really be the focal point. Below you will find a list of the supplies used in the making of this card and as always you can purchase these supplies at my Stampin’ Store Online.  
Now, it’s time to hop on over to Joni’s blog and see what she has for you! Thanks so much for hopping by. Be sure to leave me love in the form of a comment and subscribe to the blog so you never miss a post!
Hugs and happy stampin’!

ICS May Blog Hop – Celebrate Dad!

May’s Blog Hop is here! This month for Inspire, Create, Share we are celebrating our father’s! Welcome to those who have hopped here from Tammy’s Blog. I am so glad that you are here!


Making a card that celebrates my dad is sometimes hard. If he were here today, I know that he would love this simple card the honors the One who created us all.

My earthly father is in heaven and I celebrate him being free from sickness and pain and having freedom in Heaven with Jesus!! Loosing him was hard but knowing who he is with and where he is makes a huge difference when I miss him. It’s been 11 years this month since his passing, and while it never gets easier I am more used to him being gone than I used to be. I am also blessed with an amazing father-in-love who has taken me in as family and I love him dearly! I look forward to celebrating with him and my husband next month.


Now, it’s time to hop over and see what Tina has in store for us this month.

ICS Blog Hop – Happy Mother’s Day

Hail to all mothers, everywhere! Mothers are the heart of our homes and close to our hearts. Mothers Day is not for a couple of months but we are honoring mothers this month for our Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! Welcome to the hop from either Facebook or Nichole’s Blog. I love Nichole’s work and she is one of my very best friends ever!! {{mmmwwwaahhhhh friend!}


My card is using a color combination that I just love. The Cherry and Blues are so complimentary! The layout is clean and simple but small elements such as the texture folder and the rhinestones really take this up just a notch.


I love the large Butterfly diecut and am so excited that these will soon be available again. I think they are just perfect for spring and summer and are a stunning piece to any projects!


Now, you are hopping off to Tina’s Blog and see what she has in store! Thank you for stopping by. Please leave me love in the form of a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss a post!
