Another Retro Boutique Card



Hello! Here is another card I made using "Retro Boutique" by Gina K. I paper pieced the purses. The zig zag embellishment is cut from Plantin Schoolbook with my cricut. This stamp set has so many possibilities. We are heading out for a camping trip over the long weekend. Happy Independence Day and thanks for looking!

Everyone loves a party dress!



Hello! Here is a fun card I made using "Retro Boutique" from Gina K Designs. This is such a fun set! It just screams for paper piecing! Doesn't it make you want to put on a pretty party dress?? I used stickles on the dress (waist band and roses) and on some of the background flowers.




The background is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Pink and Orange Combination



Here is a simple and quick card I made using pink and orange. Such a pretty combination of colors for summer. However...I think I need to look at some card sketches and get a new plan!! This card looks way too similar to the last few I've done... : ) Oh well...at least I had fun making it! I just used a sticker for the word 'celebrate' and I've had the orange paper for a long time. The button is threaded with pink embroidery floss. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Vintage Glitter Storage



Hello! I'd like to share how I store my glitter. This is not my original idea; I've seen several people share this method and I love it. I use vintage salt shakers...I have about 10 of them. I have to admit, I don't use glitter a lot, but this is a pretty way to store it. The holes on the top are big enough for the glitter to come out and it's pretty easy to control. It's also easy to collect what you don't use and pour it back into the container.


Thanks for looking and have a super day!

One more card to share...

I made this card over the weekend using the Children of the World set by Our Craft Lounge. As you can see, I got my inspiration from their idea gallery ...I changed the colors a little bit, but pretty much CASED this idea. I embossed the background paper with a Quickutz embossing folder. I used colored pencils to color the image. Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Clearly Inspired Challenge #14: Birthday Bash!



Hello! Here is my card entry for the Clearly Inspired Challenge #14 for June: Birthday Bash! Do those candles look familiar?? I used the Too Sweet set from Clear Dollar stamps; they are actually the stamps used to make Hershey Hug candy wrappers. The candle flame is a leaf stamp from a floral set from The Angel Company. I love using black, red, and white together. I think the image has kind of a bold, graphic look. The ribbon is from Stemma and the little white tag is a Cuttlebug die. I cut the scalloped square on my Cricut using the Mini Monograms cartridge. Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
