Fancy Folds

This month’s challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers is to create a card using your favorite fun fold. So here is my card.

I used the Stamps of Life Step Card die to create the base, the papers are from AC Moore and the stamp sets I used are from Scrapping for Less.

This card will be shipped off to SAS4Kids (I am a shipper and ship to 4 different hospitals).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

2 Crafty Critter Crazies  – Anything goes with a critter (owl)
2 Sisters on the Blog – Use something with the letter S (Pumpkin Spice Coffee)

Getting Back In The Game

I have been very sparse in my posts this last year due to some personal issues. Isn’t it funny. I have a magnet on my fridge that says “Life gets in the way when you are making other plans.” This has been true for me this last year.

Here is a card I made recently just for the fun of it. I don’t have the energy to find a challenge to post it too. Just wanted to share.

The stamp set I purchased at Joann’s and came with the dies. The balloons are from a very old Spellbinders set. I created the background using the samestamp as the image.

Thanks fo stopping by.

Stinkin’ Inkers June 2019

The June challenge for Stinkin’ Inkers is It’s a Colorful World. Use your favorite colors. I love Distress Oxides for blending and that is what I used on my card today. It is a very simple card yet colorful. I have had this birthday embossing folder forever (still one of my favorites) the cupcake stamp is from Stamps by Judith.

Birthday Card for FB Group

So I joined the Always Be Creative FB Group a few months back. I had been following Desiree on YouTube and I was drawn into Desiree’s voice on her YouTube channel (Include a Thank You and Then Some) immediately – she sounded just like me. Come to find out she is from my area. We both share a heavy Philly accent. When she started the FB Group I had to jump in.

So this is my first card sharing it over at the FB Group and it will be going to one of the members who will be having an upcoming birthday.

What I love about this group is there are no mistakes, no do overs, “just go with it” attitude. And she has a live stream a few Sundays a month where we all get to interact and meet each other.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day.

Stinkin’ Inkers April Challenge

Well it is starting to look like spring may be trying to come here in the Philadelphia area. Over the weekend we had some nice warm temps and things started to bud and turn green.

This month over at Stinkin’ Inkers we are celebrating Earth Day or Arbor Day. I chose a very plain and simple design for this card.

Stinkin’ Inkers March Challenge

I am on the Design Team for the Stinkin’ Inkers Monthly Challenges. This month’s challenge is called “Tag It”. Use a tag in your project or create a tag.

I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids. You can check them out either on their site or my page at the top of this blog post (I am more specific to the needs of the hospitals I ship to). I am drawn to cute, fun, kid friendly cards. The kids and their families are surrounded by not feeling well due to chemo, tired all the time, traveling, staying at places that is not home, not being able to eat or keep things down, etc.

I have had feedback from the hospitals I ship to and the kids love the tags because they can hang them on their bulletin boards, use them as book marks, hang them on their door knobs, etc. I really think they like the fun ribbons attached to the tags.

Here is the tag I created for this challenge:

stinkin-inkers-march-tag-it

I used stamp sets from Your Next Stamp and Lil Inker Designs (clouds) for this tag,

Please feel free to contact me about donating your cards. I would love for you to join me in all the worthy causes I participate in:

Send A Smile 4 Kids
Nursing Homes
Veterans Homes

Thanks for stopping by.

A Tree For All Seasons

One of the first stamp companies I purchased from years ago was Stamps by Judith. The Tree for All Seasons was one of my first purchases. It is still my go to today. On these cards I also used one of their stubbies Heart Candy  The sentiment on the first card is also from Stamps by Judith, and the sentiment on the second card is from another stamp set. I cut the hearts out using my Scan N Cut.

I made these Valentine’s for my grands. I am also a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids and made a few to go to them as well.
