Get Well Wishes

 I am getting ready to have a garage sale, and I thought I would get rid of some old supplies that are collecting dust. I went to put this old(2000) Stampin Up! set that contains a daisy stamp in the box, and I just couldn't! So, I thought if I can't get rid of it, I better use it! I paired it up with my PTI Larger Than Life set Which I have never used (blush) and a butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies. I stamped everything in Fresh Snow ink, then went over everything offset with colored ink, then added a little colored pencil. I must say I am very happy with the results!

Happy Birthday

Seize The Birthday

Anything Goes Birthday Celebration!

When I first made this card I used the small fern like leaf from Turning A New Leaf, stamped in my Essential glue pad, then sprinkled them with glitter. I really liked the results, only to find out that my glitter had to be ultra fine, and what I used just wiped right off. So i had to change my plans and use a sheet of score tape and a die...not really the look I wanted, but I can live with it. So,  I discovered that I really don't care for the The Essential Glue pad!!

This is my second post today, and I have a couple more to go!! I have been pumping out the birthday cards this week! Only because I need them this week, and I have been putting them off!!lol
With all of the talk over on the PTI forum  about the new Delightful Dahlia Additions set, I just had to pull out my original Delightful Dahlia set. Look at me using more patterned paper too!! 

My little butterflies are covered in glitter...really pretty in real life.

I have so much patterned paper, so my goal is to start using it more. I love to go through several pads and see what papers I can put together. I think that comes from my love of decorating!

Happy 4th of July

When I saw this card that Betsy Veldman made during Papertrey Ink's May release, I just new that I had to give it a try! I had the perfect occasion, a July 4th birthday. It was a simple technique that packs a lot of punch. I added a little bit of Star Dust (my favorite) Stickles to the center and the tips of the fireworks to give them a little bit of sparkle!
