A Stamped Christmas Card

Hello and happy Friday to everyone :) I have not had much time at my craft table lately… but when I am, I have been having fun!

I have been busy making several gifts that I am giving away at Christmas (which I will share at a later date.. lol), but I also been having some fun creating some cards as well :)

This afternoon I made a video for my YouTube channel to share a Christmas card that I made, so I thought that I would share that here too: 

I hope that you have a great weekend.

A Quick and Fun Birthday Card

Hello everyone, I just wanted to take a minute to share a quick and fun birthday card I created for my cousin’s birthday. Her birthday is next Sunday so, I am hoping to drop it off in the mail box tonight so it will be picked up tomorrow first thing tomorrow morning. 
 I have had this card cut out and sitting on my craft for a week now, so I am glad that I finally got it put together! I think that it just might make it to her on time…lol :)

This card was cut from the Something to Celebrate Cricut cartridge. It was cut out at 4 ½ so it will be able to fit into a standard A2 sized envelope.

 Around the gift and ribbon I inked them up on the edges with some distress ink, and then I embossed the gift with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.   
For the flowers I used my Gypsy to close the circle in the middle of the flower so I could then add a cute little pearl. I then added some glitter to the pink part of the flower to add some shimmer to the card!!!

For the inside of the card I cut out the present one more time on white card stock and just used my paper trimmer to cut off the flowers, so I would be left with a square that would fit the shape of the present. I used a Scrappy mom’s stamp form their Everyday Greetings stamp set for the sentiment.

 I hope that everyone is having a great day! :)

As I was writing this post I was watching a beautiful sunset from my living room window. Wasn’t it just gorgeous tonight?

With Sympathy , Loss Of A Dog

Today’s post is on a sadder note. A couple of weeks ago my mother –in-law’s dog Bruno past away :( . This is also sad for my husband and I because Bruno (a Jack Russell Terrier) use to be our dog. When we were first married we got him as a puppy, and had him until he was 4. He was a great dog, but once our son became a toddler we were running into some trouble.  It was a hard decision for us to give him to my mother-in-law but I knew he would have a wonderful life with her and my brother-in-law.  

She loved him very much and has been a little blue since his death. I wanted to make her this card just to let her know that I was thinking of her. 

I saw the With Sympathy: Loss of a Pet mini stamp set at Papertrey Ink and I knew it would be a nice one to have. Many of my friends and my sister all have pets that are getting older, and sending a card is a nice way to let someone know that you are thinking of them.

To create this card I used a text stamp to create a nice background. I then used a new stamp set to me from Papertrey Ink, The Sweet Life to stamp the beautiful flowers in the corner. I rounded the corners of a rectangle piece of paper and stamped on my sentiment. I popped both it and the paw print up with pop dots.  There was a sentiment stamped on the inside of the card too, but I forgot to take the picture before I closed the envelope.

A Girly Leaf Shaped Card :)

Creating shaped cards are so much fun, and this Button Up for Fall challenge was no exception :) . Sara at live, love and SCRAP's theme for her second challenge was to create a fall themed card with a button, so I made my card a girly leaf 

I decided to create a leaf card as well because I just got the Papertrey Ink’s Falling Leaves stamp set and was super excited to use it :) 

I have created a video for my YouTube channel so I thought that I would also share that with you here:

I forgot to add the button while making my video, so I have done that now :)

This challenge was a lot of fun and I am looking forward to what the next challenge will be :)

Thanks for stopping by,
