hello peeps,

A birthday card here today! Let me start off by saying that this card is inspired by no other than Ms. Wida Miller (Beachorado). I received new stamps sets this week and was eager to try them out. I quickly channeled Wida's style - when I think of Wida's card, there are stamped backgrounds, die cutting, layering and lots of colors. I think I did well huh? I really wanted to use the hexagon background and I ran it through the die cutting machine once and it didn't cut all the way, well, I made it work anyways! I'm very happy with the end results :) Do click on the pic for list of supplies. Do let me know what you think!

Take care,
Clouds :)

Rosie Posie - Mother's Day card

Hello peeps,

I hope you are having a wonderful wkend so far, I am. Here's another Mother's Day card that I made this past week. I got brand new stamp sets from Papertrey Ink (Rose Posie) and a few others specifically for mother's day. I have a goal for making tons of 'em and sharing it with co-workers, another way of keeping the creative thoughts flowing. What do you think? Do you like? I hope you do. The set is really fun to work it and here's why, the layers of colors on the roses and leaves really does add an effect to the card and I luv the results. Anyhoot - are you making Mother's Day cards?

Take care,
Clouds :)

Happy BDay Card - Pretty Party style

hello there peeps,

A birthday card today for a cute lil 2 year old. I was asked by my neighbor to make one for her grandchild who is turning 2 next week. I don't really do well with kids cards, but I think this one turned out quite well, don't you think? Mainly I used Crate Paper (Pretty Party) paper, from my DT days, that I had in stash, and was happy to use what I already had :) Do you like? I think all that's left is a sentiment on the inside and that's it! Let me know what you think!

Hello there peeps,

A card today! Yes, I've been crafting like a mad woman lately, and that's because I'm on a mission to make beautiful mother's day cards this year. Actually, I've already had people request them at work. The card is using PTI (Bold Bouquet) stamp set, Crate Paper patterned paper and inks from Stampin' Up!

I actually made these while visiting Danielle Flanders (Homespun with Heart) at her home this wkend and was able to visit her home and family with Wida Miller (Beachorado). We had so much fun seeing her place and getting to see where she makes her lovely and inspiring projects - thanks Danielle!

Do let me know if you like the card, the colors are really bright and so is the paper, I'm sure any mom would be happy to get these cards.

Take it easy,
C :)
