My mom’s birthday is here!! I decided to make a sweet, but simple card for her… although “simple” took a couple of hours, i am happy with the way it turned out. I used a variety of dies and 1 stamp set! I die cut using a Gina Marie’s scalloped/stitched die, Gina Marie’s wreath w/ flowers (2x’s), Memory Box branch (2x’s) and stamped out the owl from Lawn Fawns Mom + Me. I colored the image and fussy cut it out and mounted it with foam tape to give it more dimension.
I decided a card was not enough… and pulled out MFT’s Lip Balm set. I had to get this whole set (all the dies & coordinating stamp set) when it came out because you can use it for a multitude of things… not just lip balm! In this case, I rolled up some $$ and sealed it up! On the backside, i die cut the “rip strip” before permanently sealing it. I hope she likes it! ❤️
See you soon! -Kim
I made this super easy and cute card for a fellow Buy Nothing Group members granddaughter. The member posted in the FB group that her granddaughter was a card crafter and that they were having a hard time getting ready for her birthday which is on New Years Day… so a bunch of us offered up some of our own crafty goodies to share with her. I volunteered to make her a card (cause we have to use our powers for good!!!) and decided on something she probably hasn’t received before. I decided on the LF pop up box die because it definitely always has that “wow” factor!
I stamped out a bunch of LF critters cause i wanted to stick with the LF theme and colored them using my Copic markers. I also die cut the grass, sun, and clothesline, but fussy cut out the critters cause i didn’t want the white border around the images this time.
I stamped out the Happy Birthday in the front and added a small message on the backside of the card… and off it went to make a little girls day! Thanks for stopping by!!
I was experimenting with different card layouts (yes, I am a huge slacker and am late.. again, in making Christmas cards!! Lol) and came up with an easier card. Just a couple of Mama Elephant stamp sets.. and some bling!
I usually have a hard time with simple cards.. and fretted that it was too plain… but I let it go (mostly cause I needed to get this card signed, sealed, & delivered) and thankfully, my cousin-worked loved it. I was her Secret 🎅. I love that mouse and bunny!!
Thank you to all those who commented and visited my blog during my time as a GIU girl. It was so much fun and I was really glad I was prepared to participate! What I was not prepared for was all the LOVE and SUPPORT from friends, new & old… fellow Unity Lovers… and just the online world out there! ♥ Doing this definitely has boosted my mojo to create more and share more as well!
Without further delay… I chose 2 people. One from a Facebook post and one from my blog! Crystal Minkler & Sharon Livesy! I choose you PIKACHU to get some Unity! You have 2 weeks to get in touch with me with your information!
BIG thanks and lotsa LOVE to UNITY as well for letting me share some Unity with fellow crafters! Sooo kind and generous to share the love!
Wanna see what I chose for my stamp set? I chose the Happy Snail Mail, May 2017 Sentiment Kit. Super cute, huh?! Love the image AND the sentiments! Will definitely get TONS of usage out of this set!
Thank you and have a wonderful evening! — Kim
Hello everyone! I am so sad that today is my last day. I have had an amazing time creating and sharing with all you guys! So I’m sending you all the biggest virtual hugs and thanks for the love, support, and comments! ♥
For my last project.. I wanted to do something different from my other projects. This one has NO pink!!! Its not loud and bright. I would consider this CAS for me! LOL
I stamped out and heat embossed the image on some water color paper. I used some of my Peerless water colors for this card. I always forget that I have them! I stamped out the sentiment, water colored it to match the scheme… and popped it up on some foam tape.
I thought about going out with a bang… making some loud & elaborate project.. but I really wanted to do something out of my “comfort” zone and do something different. I will admit that my fingers are itching to add something to make it “pop”… but I like the subtleness. Its kinda… peaceful.
Thank you again for joining me… please leave your comments and fingers crossed!!
