Noel "Cookie" Card

Joining in with the fun at the current Jingle Belles challenge which is to create using the above photo as inspiration.  I chose the Noel Cookie because it reminded me of dies I have by Concord & 9th Nordic Noel. 
I also used an older holly and berry die by Sizzix from my stash.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope your day is going well.  I've been in the kitchen baking three loaves of banana bread...yes, I had black bananas.  :)

Cups of Joy Card

March is here and it is a cloudy rainy day at my house.  Perfect weather to get lost a while in my craft room.  I wanted to make a card for some fun challenges.  I stenciled coffee cups on a green cardstock front with distress oxide ink (Mugs Stencil by Newton's Nook).  The stamped image and sentiment are by Newton's Nook (Holiday Haul).  I thought it would be fun to put cup dies in the bed of the pick-up truck.  I used Newton's Nook Cup of Cocoa die set for the cups.  I put striped washi tape at the top and bottom.  Glad to have another Christmas card done for the 2024 mailings.  Thanks for stopping by and stay dry (hide in your craft room...wink).

Birthday Smiles Card

Uniko is celebrating it's 12th birthday this month.  I have always liked Uniko and their creative and clean style of stamps, stencils, etc.  There has been lots of inspiration from Uniko the month of February in celebration of their birthday plus chances at nice prizes.  I wanted to do a birthday card to help them celebrate!  It will be a nice one to add to my birthday stash because you can never have too many birthday cards!  I used the following stamp sets to create my card: Floral Vines (floral image) and Birthday Wishes (sentiment).  I stamped them using a navy ink and then colored with alcohol markers.  Let's wish Uniko a big Happy 12th Birthday!  Thanks for dropping by and remember to stay crafty!

Funny Birthday Wish Card

I had to do a birthday card for a friend and you know how I love doing funny cards.  I used an older Art Impressions image from my stash (or hoard) of stamps.  I colored the image using alcohol markers.  I also added a touch of glitter on the cake image using pink Stickles.  The sentiment on the front of the card was computer generated using a typewriter font.  I hope this one brought a smile to my friend and YOU.  I'm linking it up at:


Text Background Christmas Tree Card

The current Jingle Belles challenge is Text Me and I wanted to join in on the fun.  I went through my stash of Christmas papers and found a pretty print background.  I used it for the card base and also the background panel for the tree.  I used a word die cut and used the same printed paper.  After matting with red cardstock and putting jewels on the Christmas tree, I have another card ready for the 2024 mailings.  Will be a huge relief when December rolls around.  Hope your weekend is filled with lots of crafty fun.

Blue Dragon Birthday Card

I needed to make a birthday card for a family friend and decided to make it acceptable for the new Luna New Year Challenge blog.  You can either make a Lunar New Year card OR a birthday card there.  I'm also going to link up at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge calling for beautiful blooms.  There are beautiful small flowers on the Asian themed patterned paper I used.  Time Out is also celebrating their 10th birthday.  They are calling for birthday cards to help with the celebration!  That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by....hope your week is going well!

Winter Clothes Card

Had fun doing a card for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge.  The stamps are an oldie from my stash by Art Impressions.  The sentiment is computer generated (and one I tell myself...at least until it is swimsuit season...wink).  Beautiful day here in the 60's...I think old man winter is hiding today.  Hope you are having a lovely Valentine's Day and remember to stay crafty!  I'm also linking this card up at:
