Simply perfect


I would love to get really good at making simpler & elegant cards. I decided to give it a go using this bells and whistles stamp I adore. I’ve used it on boy and girl cards as well as non gender specific.  I stamped it in momento ink potters clay and colored it with copics. I wanted simple I really tried to not overdue it, especially since it’s a boy card. I didn’t even pull out any DSP. I am finding I love embossing folders; Nellie Snellen and Darice brands make beautiful ones. The ribbon is from my stash, and I liquid pearl in blue around the border. the leaves are from a MS punch called fronds. Here is a closer look at the image

and the inside is stamped with a Stampin UP set, sorry for the dark background.

I would like to enter my card in these challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room: Oh Baby!

The Pink Elephant: Masculine

Top Tip Tues: Spooled Items

7 kids: Anything goes with a vintage twist

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate all your lovely comments. Have a wonderful day.

Celebrate Life



Hello, It’s such a wonderful day here in California. The beaches are glistening and I wish I was there. Instead I am bogged down with busy work. I still managed to make this cheerful little card. I wasn’t sure what type of saying to put on it.. Maybe Celebrate Life will be in order. Either way I just wanted to make something because I really want to get back into crafting more than I have been. We shall see if time permits. Either way, I’d like to enter this card in these wonderful challenges:

Happy and Blessed

Hi Crafty Friends, Today I am sharing a card I made in which the colors are totally different than what I normally go for, but I like the way they meshed together. I tried no lines technique and used copic markers. Here’s a close up (the streakiness is clearsnap smooch I used on her hair)

I used some old DSP that I bought second hand when I first started crafting, and flowers I bought long ago, but today I found a good use for all of them. The stamps I used are Tilda Forget me not, and 7 gypsies. woodchip letters were found at Marshall’s; Just love that they carry crafting items now. The dies are spellbinders, and doohickey’s. Ribbon is stampin up and the layered Butterfly is a MS punch. I would like to enter in these challenges:

Marvelous Magnolia _ #35 Anything goes

ABC Challenge – is for quite a few layers

Southern girls – #73 No Spooling around

7 kids – anything goes with Alcohol markers

Loves rubber stamps- use a hoarded item, (I hoard lots n lots o paper)

Thanks for stopping by, have a fabulous weekend. ~ Angela
