Just a Note {The Greetery}...

Hey friends!  I hope you are hanging in there during this stressful time.  We are hanging out and doing school and crafting everyday.  Feeling so fortunate to have a hobby where I can hide away and create to take my mind off things.  Right now I am zooming with friends and we are all crafting.  I made this and am now sitting down to type while we are chatting.  I do love my crafty friends!


The Greetery


I grabbed my new favorite stamp/stencil combo from The Greetery.  I picked different colors to use this time for a fresh, springy feel.  I linked all the Altenew Inks I used down in my supply list at the end of this post.


The Greetery


I cut background panel down and then cut it in 3 parts.  Using fun foam, I popped up the panels directly on a white card base.  Using black fun foam, I die cut my sentiment from the Sentiment Starters Die.  I just love the font in this set.


The Greetery


I finished off the card with some clear drops for a little extra detail.  Super easy!  

Check out the Print Shop: Fresh Floral Stamp/Stencil Set HERE.  The Sentiment Starters Dies will be available soon.  Just keep an eye out on The Greetery Blog for those details.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Hope you are doing well.  Have a great day!

United We Craft Blog Party




Hello crafty friends!  I am so excited to be here today bringing a little crafty in the middle of this crazy quarantined time at home.  I am joining a big group of amazing crafters today for one huge virtual party today over at Simon Says Stamp!  We will all be sharing lots of crafty inspiration today and you can check out all the blogs by heading over to the Simon Blog.  


As I have been sitting at my desk, zooming with friends over the past 2 weeks, I have been feeling to grateful for this hobby and all of my friends.  We have chatted and laughed and crafted the time away in the middle of this yuck.  I feel pretty blessed to be "safe at home" not stuck at home, with my kiddos and all my friends who live in my computer.






I have a couple of projects to share today using some of my favorite Simon Says products.  Everything I used for today's projects are linked at the bottom of this post.


Simon Says Stamp


This first card was made with the stamp set called Vacation Time and the adorable Classic Bicycle Die.  I also used some distress inks to add some Grassy Edges along the bottom and then a few clouds at the top edge of the card front.


Simon Says Stamp


I used my Misti and stamped in the sentiment from Vacation Time along the bottom edge and the big sentiment up in the corner.  I die cut and pieced together the Classic Bicycle Die and added it to the front of the card.  Last, I added in some clear drops to finish off the card.


Simon Says Stamp


Another die from Simon Says that has always been a favorite is the Clustered Leaves.  And then they went and came out with the outline to coordinate.  I just love these 2 dies!


Simon Says Stamp


To create this card, I die cut the leaves in a light green cardstock and then added in a bunch of shading with Altenew's Alcohol Makers.  I die cut the Clustered Outline in white and attached the 2 die cuts together with spray adhesive.  


Simon Says Stamp


I grabbed a light gray card front and heat embossed the sentiment on the front.  Next, I added in the leaves to the front and finished it off with some more clear drops.  I love those things.  I want to put them on every card I make but I try to contain it.  LOL!


Simon Says Stamp


I am so glad you stopped in today!  I hope that you are safe at home and doing well.  If you are an essential worker, my family sends love and prayers for your safety!

Have fun in today's Simon Says Stamp Virtual Party!

Cards for Kindness {Scrapbook.com}...



Good morning!  I am stopping in today to share a new stamp set from Scrapbook.com.  This is an adorable stamp set called Cards for Kindness.  The Cards for Kindness™ Stamp Set was created to bring awareness to a philanthropic effort that Scrapbook.com has been participating in locally where handmade cards are donated to hospitals, nursing homes, youth centers, crisis centers, treatment facilities and more.

have a quick and simple card to share today using this new set!


Scrapbook.com


To create this card, I lined up the little rainbow image in my Misti and stamped repeatedly, shifting my cardstock over for each image.  I did the full panel in rainbow order, of course!  Check out the amazing rainbow of inks linked in my supply list below.  Scrapbook.com inks are FABULOUS!


Scrapbook.com


I cut the panel out and added it to a yellow card base and then stamped the Hello in black ink on the front of the card.  Last, I stamped the little heart from the set and popped it up on a foam square.  I added a little Glossy Accents to the heart to finish off the card.
