Photopolymer Thank You

I needed a thank you card for my fabulous and very loved pet sitter.  I saw a similar card over at and loved it.  I made mine a thank you card and added a little dog and cat brad from my stash - they came from the eyelet outlet at a local stamp show.  I love the new photopolymer stamps from Stampin Up.  The "thank you" sentiment I used from that set has little hearts underlining it - perfect for my card.  This was a very quick and easy card to make.  Mary Fish from Stampin Pretty did a video on making the paw print. You'll find the video here.

CS:  Whisper White, Early Espresso
Stamps:  Photopolymer Another Thank You
Ink:  Early Espresso
Accessories:  Heart Framelits, Small Oval punch
Other:  Dog and Cat brads

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting today.

Butterfly and Flowers

I made this card a while ago.  The flowers and butterfly are from a Sizzix/Hero Arts stamp and die set.  I water colored them on Stampin Up water color paper with Stampin Up ink pads in perfect plum, elegant eggplant,  melon mambo, old olive - the flower centers in soft suede.  The sentiment was from the new hostess set called Sweetly Framed - it was punched out on a EK Success punch.  I like the way it turned out.

Thanks for visiting today.

A Very Merry Christmas

I really like Stampin Up's new thinlit card dies.  This was my first try at making one.  My friend Nancy over at Nanny's Pansy Patch and I took them for a test drive so to speak.  I made the bow with my Silhouette so I could size it down to card size.  I think I'm starting to get in the mood to make Christmas cards.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.

Halloween Boo Banner

This is my version of the banner made by Connie Babbert from Create with Connie and Mary.  The instructions can be found  I used coasters from Ruby Tuesdays and covered them in black cardstock before starting.  Most of the supplies used were Stampin Up.  The dsp is retired but any paper will work of course.  My ghosts are a sizzix die.  I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.
