Christmas In July

Hello! It's the 25th of the month and that means it's time for the Keeping Christmas hop. We are trying to make cards each month so when Christmas comes around we won't have a mad rush to make so many cards at once. I LOVE making Christmas cards all year round.
 Kelly Lunceford will be having a give a way on her blog for this hop. 

 I couldn't wait to use my new Concord & 9th inks.  As you can see I kept my card very simple and used red and gray. I was so tempted to add glitter to the rooftops but I refrained . 

Thanks for the visit during these unbelievable times!
I pray for peace for all!
God Bless!

Embellished Patterned Paper

Hello, I hope you are all hanging in there and hope you each have a joyful day.

 I wanted to make a simple and fast card before I switched to quilting the top of my quilt.
After seeing Betsy's( from The Greetery) beautiful new peach set I wanted to create something with the set I have from Papertrey Ink . Pretty sure it's a Betsy design .

I used the patterned paper image fussy cut it down then lightly shaded it with Copic Markers and added some extra white dots and bit of outlines then some Glossy Accents. 
I added the Simple Things sentiment trying to cover up what was printed. So not my own design just embossed and cut and added new striped background  .... fun and fast!

God Bless

Love Is In the Air

Michelle has a special give -a- way over at 

Hello and welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasions for June!

Michelle Is our host for the month of June, not sure how she put the kit together as she has so much going on in her life right now.
Michelle, you did it! 
I woke up early one morning and made all five cards in a row as I enjoyed this kit so much!
I took the pictures a little early in the morning and they are kinda dark, sorry.

I cut some of the cardstock included in the kit with Halfsies Diamond Die from the Greetery! I cut the patterned paper down and added a bit of glossy accents.

For the card above I used Papertrey Ink Wood grain impression plate, cut and added the included gold embossed tree!

 Don't forget to stop by :The 12 Kits of Occasions  for a list of supplies and the links to the designers for a peek to what they made with the kit. 
Thank you Michelle !

Peace be with you all my friends!

Keeping Christmas

Hello, I hope you are having a happy day!

 I was so busy last month, the time to post just slipped my mind.
I made up for it with seven Christmas cards ready to mail!
This Christmas group is a group of card designers trying to get ahead of making Christmas cards before we get too busy with all the Holiday preparations.
Hopefully we can inspire you to get ahead as well, trust me it feels nice!

I used the Bountiful Wreath stamp and die set from The Greetery!
Its more of a fall stamp set but I think stamped with different shades of green and red it works pretty well. The sentiment is from Poppystamps
The inks I used are all pictured above. I tried many red and I always end up going back to Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy. I also added Glossy Accents to each berry.

Please hop along and be inspired!

Quilted Thank You Card

In all fairness, I did make this card before seeing the photo
(not a back link) 
I am linking it because both my card and the photo are summertime fun and red, white and blue.

Hi there ! Hope all is well with you. 

My husband had a week off so not much crafting. We were blessed to spend a few days at our daughter and her husband's lake house in beautiful Lake Arrowhead.

A few weeks ago I received the most beautiful patriotic quilt from my sister (brother's wife) . I made this card to say thank you. 
I used the Papertrey Ink die ( that I use often) to cut material! It was almost perfect until I changed last layer of the frame to a lighter in color and fabric, material. I do love how easily the material cut with the die and a metal shim.
I will try post a picture of the quilt that I was given on July 4th.
Thanks so much for the visit !
God bless!

Birthday Blooms and a Quilt Top

CAS(E) this Sketch #376

Hello,  hope you are doing well. 
 I have been quilting lately as I have a brand new sewing machine! Trying to learn my new machine has taken a lot of time, as classes cannot start until next week. ( 🦠 )
This beautiful stamp came last week and I couldn't wait to use it, so I got up early this morning and made this simple card. I guess I chose orange ( usually go pink) because I wanted it to look like a California poppy ( state flower)

Just a peek at the quilt top. I made a few mistakes 
but I have learned from them so they stayed in the quilt.

Take care sweet friends ! 
God Bless

Lots of Blooms

 Hello Friends! 
Boy did May go by in a flash.  This is a group of friends making cards from a monthly kit sent out by one of the members each month, just for fun.
 Marcia is our host for the month of May and sent out some beautiful flowers and pretty patterned paper as you can see in the beautiful photo above. Thank you Lindsey for doing the photo!

I simply stamped the sentiment on this card and added the blooms from Papertrey Ink

 Colored this one in, added some shimmer and used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink. Same for the one below.

 Colored in, fussy cut the image above and used The Greetery Die 
Below added I another Papertrey Ink sentiment and added the fussy cut image I colored.

 I hope these cards brightened your day a bit.

Pleases stop by  The 12 Kits of Occasions  blog to get the supply list and see the rest of the designers creations. I can guarantee it will be way more enjoyable than the news lately.
I can't wait to see what everyone made with Marcia's beautiful kit.
Thank you Marcia!
