Embossed Thank You Cards


I wish you all many blessings in 2017!

 We unexpectedly lost a dear friend this morning, 
needless to say I am kind of out of it. 

Still working out some photo issues

I made some birthday / Christmas thank you cards to share. Simply heat embossed in gold then layered on a little notecard.

God bless you all!

thank you cards!

On the card above I fussy cut the bear, added a heart from ;
Poppystamps, Grateful Heart Die Set and Stitched Divider. 
So sorry about the photos! 

Using my new Poppystamps die called Dotted Curve and 
stitched it up with the pretty silver string that Jessica 
included with the kit.

Merry Christmas

Hello! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
I’ve been quiet on my blog, with so much to do for Christmas.
Just wanted to pop in and say hello.

When I saw my sweet friend Michele from I Card Everyone use this adorable stamp set from WPlus9 I just had to have it! I loved the cards Michele posted on Instagram, made with the black sky. As soon as I received this stamp set a few weeks ago I made some cards very similar to Michele’s, I didn’t have the same sky as her so I lightly rubbed my Papertrey Ink white snow ink over the embossed panel . The stitched hills are from Mama Elephant, I used Zig pens, Copic markers and more:)

 Merry Christmas to you All!

Prayer and a Pompom Wreath

My second post today First one is Bless You!
Create Along With Us: December 2016
 Dawn’s Card 

Hi friends! Hope your December is a good one for you so far! I took a bit of a break from blogs and created this wreath. Sorry I know I have been missing all your beautiful projects, sorry!

A few weeks ago jennifermcguireink shared that she was making lots of pompoms, well I had to get in on it too! I had so much fun making them and kinda knew all along I wanted to make a wreath. I wish you could see this in person, I am SO in love with this wreath! I used different kinds of yarn, some thin, thick and fine. I wanted slight variations of cream to white This is so addictive and not a good idea to get into with so much going on before Christmas.
 Now all my girls want one, they will have to wait.
I also made many just to put on Christmas gifts and will do the same for Birthdays etc.
 How many of you got hooked after seeing Jennifer’s post on Instagram, like me?

Ok, quickly back to my card for Papertrey Ink, I recreated Dawns
 card using the products I already have. I did some embossing and used my Zig pens right on the stamp.

Best Wishes

With Betsy

Hello! Playing along with Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday!
It’s kinda hard to see Betsy’s technique  that I used on my card ,
I even blended red ink on top of my outline.
Couldn’t fined my white embossing powder so I used 
white pearl embossing powder.

 I tried many backgrounds and was not happy so I stuck 
with using this new split stamp, because I like it so much!

I have a space between my design and lots of white space 
on my cards.

The card above is stamped on white that I blended with green then stamped it.

I decided I had to have the splits stamp set, when I saw
 Ksenija Rizova create so many beautiful Christmas
 cards with it! You can see her beautiful cards  HERE

I am so happy I bought this set , not sure how I missed it, when it first came out. Ive seen many of you use it so beautifully.

Wow White Pearl embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp

Thank you!
