Simple Thanks Card

It’s great to say “Thanks!” and here’s a fun and easy way to do it. This card just uses 2 stamps, silver embossing powder, a Southwest Punch, and a few bling jewels.

I actually found the beautiful butterfly stamp at a dollar store, so the actual image is very thin, but it works quite well on plain untextured paper. You never know what you will find at dollar stores 🙂

I used StazOn ink for the Thanks stamp because it adheres well to those slippery surfaces, like the pearl DCWV paper that I chose for this card.


Multi-Color Embossed Card

I was playing the other day with using my “collection” of embossing powders. I made a card similar to this and really liked the effect, so I thought I would show you how I did it 🙂

I used Ranger Embossing Powders, a black ink pad, a few stamps and some peel-off corner stickers.

Outdoors/Nature Father’s Day Card

Hi everyone! This week I went for an outdoors theme for all the nature-loving dads! I used a leaf die cut, Old Paper Distress Ink Pad, a leafy branch die cut, southwest corner punch, some fibers and a button.

Let me just take a minute to wish all your dads and husbands a happy father’s day! A year ago, I would have never dreamed that it would be the last time that I made my dad a Father’s Day card. I’m glad I told him often that I loved him and I’m ever so glad that I did. He died peacefully of a heart attack on November 26th, 2010, on the 3rd anniversary of my mother’s death. What a shock for us, but what a blessing for him to go Home!

My Dad and my daughter Rosie in 2006.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. The video below shows all the details for making the card.

Dad, You’re A Classic!

If you are fortunate enough to still have your dad around, make him this fun Father’s Day card for June 19th!

For this card, I used Graphic 45’s — A Proper Gentleman Tags and Glimmer Mist, along with a printed sentiment that I made in Microsoft Word.

Glimmer Mist Butterfly Card

I had fun creating this card with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist! It adds such a nice sparkle to any project. I put an extra heavy coating on the butterfly, but did a light coating on the inside of the card so the words wouldn’t be hard to read.

The butterfly is a Martha Stewart stamp, embossed in gold and cut out. I also used a stamp for the inside of the card (also embossed in gold) and some peel-off corner stickers.
