Sending Happy Mail

I tried to take a slightly angled photo of this card so that you can see the frame that I created around this image, I love the way it turned out, using Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle and Scallop circle dies:

For today's post, I wanted to share the small cards I made for my Blog and YouTube winners.

I wanted to include a little card with each of their packages, however,  I didn't want to make the same card for all of them, so I decided to create different scenes for each.  I love the way they turned out!  Each measure 3" x 3".

For the card base I used Papertrey ink Kraft paper and as far as the designer paper, well, I used several different 6" x 6" paper pads, Echo Park - Hello Summer, lilybeedesign - This and That and Basic Grey - picadelly.  The stamp sets I used were,  Puppy Love by There She Goes ,  Owl Be Thinking of You by The Crafts Meow, Spring is Here by The Crafts Meow and last but not least a set from Whipper Snapper Designs - Sugar N Spice.

I also stamped the inside of them, I just forgot to take photos before mailing the packages out.  I hope they'll like them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mother's Day Card & Gift card holder

Hi Everyone!  I hope you all are having a relaxing and great weekend, hoping you'll have a very Happy Mother's Day!
Today I'm sharing with you the Mother's Day card that I made for my Mom this year.  I introduced her to My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamps and she was in love!  She immediately said to me, "Please make my mother's day card using one of these stamps" I did!  I promise, I will be switching it up a little, and using other stamps, it's just right now, I've been on this MFT wagon and I can't seem to get enough of them.  I've purchased so many of these stamps, it's kind of crazy!  Maybe one of these days I'll share my obsession with you, until then, I'm kind of ashamed to do so, LOL!

For the base of my card I used Papertrey ink white card stock, my designer papers is from Authentique Delightful and My Minds Eye Miss Caroline.  I colored my image using Copic markers and paper pieced her dress.  The flowers were made using the Prima Donna flower die as well as the CC Design Cutter dies - Leafy Branch and Phlox Flower .  I used the Martha Stewart Pansy set Punch around the page, which I have to say, I loved the way that looks with the Pink background.  My sentiment was from a Stampin' Up! set called Teeny Tiny Wishes.   

Now, I have to say, the Purse gift card holder was not my original idea, I searched YouTube for purse gift card holders and found some inspiration, but as far as finding a video on how to make this one, at least I couldn't find one, but if anyone does, let me know...... so it was trial and error with the measurements, until I got to the size that I wanted it.  I really dislike trying to figure out the measurements and fiddling with making a pattern, I'd rather just find the "how-to" instructions or a video I can follow.  So if you are interested in learning how to make this, let me know and I will work on a YT video for you.

Thank you for stopping by!
