These purple flowers were made a long time ago from bits and pieces and I finally had a project to add them to that they would work with. Added some bits of foliage and a leftover circle diecut from one of our classes and poof! A card. And less pieces in my stash.
I have used this green chevron soooo much this summer and I am happy to say this is my last piece and I shall never have to see it again since it is also sold out. Whew. I just added a foliage and butterfly to complete the card and stamped a sympathy saying on the inside. I inked the foliage with white ink since the 2 greens were not the same and that made it work. Poof!
A lot of our friends/customers have had a lot of funerals lately. So today while I am working on cleaning up leftover papers/pieces ....I have made a few sympathy cards to replenish our stock of them for sale. The next 7 days will be cards that I have made from just extra bits. I know I feel good clearing a few out. Sadly, they accumulate here faster then we can ever get them used.
I have always liked this doily die by Cheery Lynn but have only used on pages so while I had it out on my workbench I decided to whip up a card with it for a sample for the store. The Butterfly is also Cheery Lynn and both available at Picture This.
We had these 2 lonely papers left so I whipped them up into pages for sale. Dawn cut the title on our Pazzles for me and poof!! Another open spot for more new paper. We are kinda paper addicts here so we have new papers arriving every week. Love it. And so do our customers.
Another fun card from one of my classes this past week. I love the colors. I still love the Black Eyed Susan die and I have always liked brown and pinks together. So this was my favorite card from class and it was also everybody in class's favorite as well.
The negative from the Spellbinders curved dies was used on the inside. The ladybug is an ECD die.
I used the Grand Caliber for the large scalloped circle and circle. And then various punches and dies for the flowers and their centers. I roughed everything up with sand paper and the distressing tool for edges.
Was working on pages for sale today and this paper appealed to me for a quick and easy page. I just triple matted it and cut the poinsettias from the red matting. And the yellow centers and twigs from the yellow matting.
Surprise surprise...I didn't use CL. I used Spellbinders dies this time.
This is a new foliage die from Memory Box and I had made a page sample with it awhile back because it mimicked the design in the paper perfectly. So now getting around to using it on a card. Very easy but oh so pretty. The cute little hummer is a Cheery Lynn and the thanks is an IO.
This was taking several not-so-pretty papers and making them work for a beautiful card. We are miracle workers here at PT. We often do this to move product. THEN everyone falls in love with the product and wants it. Funny how that works.
Cheery Lynn Daisy strip and the leaves are a pair of Memory box dies. The dragonfly is Cheery Lynn. Me and my Cheery Lynn....love their dies. And we just got some brand new ones in so I can hardly wait to get time to play with them!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have been a scrapper forever and started cards in '87. Now I can't imagine doing one without the other or not having this creative outlet in my world. I live in Wisconsin, have 2 boys and 4 cats and have an obsession with tigers. In '04 I was diagnosed with Chiari and had to make a career change. So I turned my hobby into a business and opened a store in my hometown in '04 and eventually bought a larger store in '06 and combined the two. I love sharing my creative passion with others.
