It's Your Happy Day

 Hello and TGIF.(I know, Friday is almost over, as I post this)

Another week almost over and a new month starts next week. Geez, where have I been!! Six months til Christmas, the time is screaming by. I guess I better start getting my Christmas cards ready. Otherwise I will be behind the eight-ball. LOL

Well I have another card using my Heartfelt Creations Clematis stamps/dies/molds. I think this will be the last Clematis card for a while. I have some new butterfly stamps coming next week. And who doesn't like butterflies!!

I was looking in a stamping mag and saw this card style and thought the Clematis stamps might look great in this card design. This card was called a Braced Aperture Card in the magazine but it's also known as a tent fold card. 

Lets take a peek at my finished card!!

Side view

This card does not open up, so any message you might want to add along with your signature,  will have to go on the back of the card. I added a brace to the bottom of the card. It gives the card the ability to stand open and it doesn't sag.(You can see that brace in the 2nd pic) I made a lattice background from scraps of CS and attached it to the inside back of the card. I stamped and colored the birdhouse, the individual blooms, the birds and the viny leaves, ran the blooms and the leaves thru their individual molds and attached the images onto the lattice. The images are on the inside and the front of the card, and since there is a circle cutout on the front, the scene is always able to be seen and looks very dimensional. 

I added a holographic frame to the circle to draw your eye to the circle and the scene inside the circle.

For a Faithful Friend

Hey There!!! Hello everyone,

Hope your week has been good to you so far and hope your weekend will be a fun one.

I want to share with you a cool card. It's a triple tier slider card. And I used some scraps that were sitting on my desk.

I used some Heartfelt Creations Clematis Blooms and I also used the trellis image that is on one of the paper sheets in their paper pack. This card has a WOW factor (IMHO) and I hope you enjoy this card. 

Here is the card closed

and here is the card, opened

I love the Clematis Blooms collection and it seemed to be a great fit for a slider card. 

Oh BTW, I used the Heartfelt Creations leafy accents stamps and die and mold. I think those leaves are the perfect size for my blooms.

Thinking of You

 Hi Everyone,

Hope you are having a great day so far. 

Yesterday I posted a card using images from Bugaboo. Well, I am back with another card using just one of the images from yesterday's card. This time, I only used the Flowerpots from Bugaboo

Let's take a look at the card:

I think this Flower Pots image is so pretty and perfect for spring (even though we are into summer, now) or perfect for just about any time of the year. 

That background is a sheet of watercolor paper that I just added some orange and a little bit of yellow to. And that oval frame really makes the image pop

All Things Grow with Love

 How's it going today !! Hope your day is going well for you.

The new challenge at Creative Moments has started today and I thought I'd share my inspiration project with you all, today.

The sponsor is Bugaboo and their digi's are definitely so cute!!!  In fact, they are soooo cute, I used 2 images in my card. And these images just seem to go together.

I made a slimline card and it turned out great!! Used up some scraps.

Look at JJ, she is in her faded jeans dress and she is working with some small potted plants. BTW, the JJ Garden digi is being retired. And check this out, there is another image that comes with this one as well. Too cute.

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone,  Welcome to my blog

My project today is using a digital image from Digi Doodle Studios. If you like bears, you will love this cutie, for sure.  I am using Beatrice Teddy Bear. Stop by the Digi Doodle Studio and check out their great selection of digi's

That cute bear (with the balloons) reminded me of  birthdays, so 
I thought I'd add some more balloons and spell out the Happy Birthday wish on the card. 

This will be a darling birthday card for a child. 

BTW, the challenge over at Crafty Creations, has started today 
and the theme is always Anything Goes.
