Family Update…

Dear friends and cardmakers…I wanted to email each of you but decided I better just share a short post. I can talk up a storm in person but coming up with words to type can be so hard.

Our youngest daughter, Breanna passed away late Sunday afternoon. We’re crushed and heartbroken. We’re so thankful for prayer, family and friendships.

The obituary is HERE.  Thank you so much for your kindness and support.  We appreciate it so much!

Love,

Pam

p.s. I’ll be back with new stuff from MB and BPD soon!

Memory Box Diagonal Stripe and Collaboration Flower Stamp Set…

Hi Friends and cardmakers! I made this card and even had the pictures taken before we had a family emergency and had to hurry out the door.

The sentiment on this card says it all though!  So thankful for all who prayed for our daughter, for us and even gave to support her!  It’s a miracle she is alive.  She had 6 hours of chemo on Friday and by Sunday they said she only had 2 hrs to 2 days to live.  I just couldn’t let her go.  I started telling her to breathe and live, her sisters got her bone broth and we started in on her.  By Wednesday she was back on living protocol and we were kicked out of the hospital much to my dismay!!!  Our hearts are with her and we chat with her on and off all day. 

Now about this card…I’d been wanting to use the new Memory Box Diagonal Stripe Collage die.  I love it!  I have another idea brewing in my head but not sure it will work. lol

Then I saw this new stamp set, Celebrate Us, awhile back that was a collaboration between Altenew and Pinkfresh Studio and I wanted it for fast colored flowers!  I’m really happy with how they stamped up and how well two of them fit together to make a bouquet.

I used Altenew mini ink cubes to ink up the flower stamps.  I’m gonna call this a CAS card because it wasn’t hard and I think you could make several of them fast and the white background just sets them off!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Once again…we covet your prayers and thoughts for our family right now…not sure what the journey will look like but the miracle has begun and we’re not giving up!  Nourish and Hope!

Waffleflower Tumble On Spinner Card…

Today I’m sharing one of the birthday cards I made for our oldest granddaughter Atalyssa, aka Attie.  She is an amazing gymnast so I had to use this new at the time Tumble on set from Waffleflower.  Sooo fun!

This party was for five of our grandkids and Lizzie, who’s birthday is the day before Attie’s planned a Masquerade party.  It was so much crazy fun!  😀

Here’s Attie making her card spin…

Fortunately she was able to get a few competitions in this year and we’re so proud of her!  All around 2nd place at this one.  YAY Attie! (she’s the girl that looks like she’s behind the number one block)

Here’s the card sliding by itself.  There was a gal on Instagram that shared her card for Waffleflower and I basically copied her.

I stamped, die cut, colored and paper pieced her leo with black glitter cardstock.

I gave her a wood floor and brick wall because of the gym she goes to.

Thanks for stopping by to see this cutie in action!

Honey Bee Stamps, Oh My Whiskers Birthday Card…


Hi everyone!  It’s time for family September birthdays around here. This is for our granddaughter that loves her outdoor kitties! It’s her 12th birthday and one of her birthday gifts from her mom and dad were all the kitty pictures printed from her iPod and a photo album to put them in!  So so sweet!  She loved it!

When I saw this stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps, I knew I had to have it for Lizzie Faith’s birthday card this year.  The kitties are SO CUTE! Just full of personality.

I stamped on Copic X-press it card, cut the images out with the Scan and Cut and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. There are coordinating dies to but I don’t have them yet.

Pinks are R81,83,85

Green YG17

Grays the T’s and N’s

Violet V12, 15, 17

yellow Y13, 15

I added the white dots to the boot with a White Signo Gel pen.

The cardstock is Taylored Expressions Confetti Cake for the cardbase and Bazzill cut with a grass die and cloud border die.

The white heat embossed sentiment is from another set, I’ll link below and I colored a piece of Copic X-press it card with the pinks, let it dry, then heat embossed it in the MISTI. Another sentiment from the same set on the inside.

Linking to some challenges…

Seize the Birthday

I hope it made you smile!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  Two more birthday cards to go.  All three birthdays are right in a row…how did that happen! (different years)  I remember when all three of them were born.  They grow up so fast!  ❤

Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons Birthday Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  I’m finally getting our oldest grandson’s birthday card posted!  There is a reason for the colors and the personalized license plate!  He just turned 19, so there’s 19 balloons,  the orange and green balloons represent the two robotics teams he’s been on and the black truck because he has a black car! lol

I had so much fun playing with this Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons Die set.  So glad I bought it!  I can’t wait to use it for Christmas especially but this was really fun! I die cut 19 balloons and inked the edges with coordinating ink and the ink blending tool.

The light reflection pieces on the balloons are die cut vellum. The die cut for that comes with the Balloon die set linked below.

I did make the license plate myself.  I printed the name out on the computer and it is his actual license plate.

Quite a bit of dimension but it still fits in an A2 envelope.  I would use an A6 envelope if I was putting it in the mail.

The Birthday Pennant die is discontinued but the Birthday Letters are still available…link below.

The sky is definitely the limit with this set! So many great things ahead for Ethan.  Exciting but so hard to believe 19 years have gone by since he was born! So proud of him!

Thanks for stopping by!

MFT Warm and Fuzzy Birthday card…

Hi and welcome to a beautiful Summer’s eve campfire! This set is so cute, can’t believe it’s the first time I’ve used it.  The kids have used it but me, I’m the last one!  Now it’s retiring but we know there’s always more cute coming… You can still find it HERE and the dies HERE…hurry if you want them!

This was our grandson Cedryk’s 5th birthday card.  They live in the country and at night they’ll go visit the cows in the gator… the cows love to come talk to Cedryk! lol  Actually Ced talks to them and they listen!  lol

I used Distress Oxide inks for the sky and grass ink blendingwater dripped on and dabbed off for the faint spots in the sky.  Puffy cloud dies, you can find them HERE.

So cute!  Love that little hedgie!  I colored the images with Copic Markers on MFT  Sweet Tooth Card stock.  I have a little trouble with the copics bleeding on it but I like how easy it blends. A basic A2 size card.

Sharing my card on some challenge blogs…
