Tranquil Tulips Thank You

Well I'm here, just alittle bit late in posting, was busy yesterday doing other things around the house.  Saturday night, I went to my 45th High School Reunion, GASP!!  I can't be that old, can I??!!

On to the card.  I found this card at Tracy Gray's blog and she found it at Erica Cerwin's blog, either way, it is a beautiful card and I wanted to make one.  I did change it up a bit, but I was inspire by both of them!  I made two cards, which I do anytime I make a card, so one is a Thank You and one is for my friend, so a Friend card.  I did fussy cut the tulips out for this card, but you could easily arrange your flowers so you don't have to do that.


Here is what I used:

Stamp sets: Tranquil Tulips and Beautiful Bouquet
Card stock: Thick Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum
Inks: Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive 
DSP: Color Theory
Scallop Oval
Stitched Ovals
Sweet Sugarplum ribbon-retired

Off to do some more cards, need to make a few more for the upcoming auction!  Mary

Vertical Greetings

Well the weekend is finally here.  I have a non-Christmas card to share with all of you today.

I've had this stamp set for awhile and was decided to pull it out and make a quick card to share with you.  As I have shared in the past, each year I make some cards up to give to the assisted living facility where my daughter works.  They have all kinds of items donated to them and then they hold a auction where anyone can place a bid.  All monies raised are then donated to the Alzheimer's Association!  Last year my donation helped raise $50.00!!

To get a two-tone effect on the greenery, I colored in with Pear Pizzazz marker and then "thumped" over it with my Old Olive marker.  The stems were color in with my Crumb Cake marker.


Here is what I used for this card:

Stamp set: Vertical Greetings and Timeless Textures
Card stock: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White and Cajun Craze
Ink: Cajun Craze
Stampin' Write Markers: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive
Linen Thread
Glue Dot

I'm off to finish making another card, hope you come back soon too!  Have a great weekend!  Mary

Christmas In July, Winter Wishes

Hi everyone, I'm so glad you decided to come to my craft room today to see what I have to share with you!

Earlier I shared with you a card I made using the negative image made with the Santa Sleigh Thinlits.  Well I had four more of those images and I really didn't want to throw away this glimmer paper, so here is another card that I came up with to use two of those with.


I like the warm, rustic feel to this card and it would be a good one for a single guy on your Christmas card list!  Here is what I used,

Stamp sets: Hardwood and Winter Wishes-retired
Inks: Crumb Cake and Soft Suede
Card stock: Garden Green, Real Red and Crumb Cake
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper
Warmth & Cheer DSP-retired
Santa Sleigh Thinlits
Cable Knit Embossing Folder

I'll be back on Friday with one more Christmas card, then off to making something new, I hope you have a great day!  Mary
