Nature Garden Thank You Pocket Card


Hello dear friends and welcome!
While going through my stash of Prima the other day, I found several sheets from the Nature Garden collection I didn't know I had. LOVE this collection!!! Together with some of the Prima flowers and leaves I created this Thank You card.


These papers are gorgeous and you really don't need a lot of extras to make a nice card with them. I added a few Simon Says Stamp Gelato Confetti in blue and that's it! Other than the gold glitter paper I used for mats and gold corner pieces, I saw no need for anything else.


Hope you're having a wonderful week. Please drop in again soon!

Happy Anniversary Pocket Card


Hello and welcome!
The Penmaker and I, with much help from our SIL and his family are cutting down dead trees on our property, along with some overgrown ones that are too close to the house. It's always good to get some much needed work done outside early in the season. 


Creating-wise... I got absolutely nothing done over the weekend, but did finish up one card yesterday which I love. This is one I made last week using Prima's Love Story. I just adore this carriage that was in the ephemera pack. 


The flowers are some I had gotten on clearance a long while back at Michaels by Recollections. The rosebuds are from I Am Roses. I cut the frame from gold glittered corrugate with Alterations Frame 2 die. For the sentiment, I used a clear stamp from my MSE Anniversary Innies & Outies set.


Have a great day creating!

Très Chic Thank You Pocket Card


Hi friends and Happy Monday!
I have a very feminine thank you card today made with Prima's Love Story collection and Authentique's Dame 6x6 paper pad. Really an odd pattern mix, but I thought they complemented each other quite well.


I used one of the acetate pieces from the LS ephemera pack and stamped my sentiment on one of the cardstocks. The flowers are all from Prima. I have a large storage box of their flowers and since they seldom print the collection names on them, I usually don't know which they are. They all seem to match well, though, no mater which collection I choose. I added an ivory burlap string bow to the arrangement. It's all sitting on a nest of green Spanish moss.


The tres chic image is from the Authentique paper pad as is the plaid paper. I cut the frame using Spellbinder's Oval Floral die set. The gorgeous gems are the Studio Katia Cupid's Kiss crystals.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Holland Bulbs Pocket Card


Hi! I hope you're having a fantastic Saturday!
My card today looks like a Saturday kind-of-card, doesn't it? Green, and gardening, and thinking of you!
It's created with some Graphic 45 papers as the base, mats, and tag along with Carta Bella Spring Market... both 12x12 and 6x6 papers plus stickers from the collection.


The frame was made using to layers cut with Alterations Thinlits Stitched Circles. The lovely flowers are by Prima from their Amelia Rose collection. I tucked in a few I Am Roses tiny leaves here and there to fill in the empty space. They are laying on a bed of green Spanish moss.


These two mats were cut with MFT's Die-namics Stitched Rectangles set. I scattered some Pretty Pink Posh clear confetti around for sparkle and added one of my Tennessee laser-cut wood hummingbirds. 


Love the fresh, Spring feel of this card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Prima Love Story Sympathy Pocket Card


Hi and welcome!
For today's card I pulled out more of the Prima Love Story collection... the 6x6 paper pad, some of the 12x12, and the ephemera pack. It's all teamed with Echo Park's 6x6 Dots & Stripes Valentines light pink paper and some light pink cardstock. 


The flowers and leaf are from Prima as well.


I used Spellbinder's Oval Floral and classic Circles die sets. The sentiment is from the Altenew Heartfelt Sentiments set.
The weekend's coming up fast... have a great one!

Wishing You a Fast Recovery Pocket Card


Hello there!
I want to share a get well card I created awhile ago with some Bo Bunny papers and Tim Holtz ephemera and mini gears. I cut a couple of the layers with my MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle dies. The larger gear at the bottom right is from Hobby Lobby. It's topped with a TH Hex Fastener. The boy is one of the TH Paper Dolls popped up with foam adhesive. The 78 in the right top corner is a TH Remnant Rub Gilded Accent. The sentiment was stamped with Altenew's Heartfelt Sentiments and Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. I used Metallic Kraft paper for mats. The tag is tied with hand-dyed wool.


Wishing you a great day
and thanks for stopping by!

La Nouvelle Mode Pocket Card


Hello friends!
It's snowing like crazy here. Who can figure out this weather! Is this a faux Spring? I wonder.
To brighten things up I have a pretty pink Thinking of You card created from (again) Prima collections. I have lots of Prima papers and mixing the collections is a breeze. 


The base mat on this card is from an oldie call Reflections. I can't even remember the whole of it, but I have several sheets of this text and dotted paper which I love. So I apparently stocked up on this. Patting myself on the back for that wise forethought. LOL!!!


I sprinkled Simon Says Stamp Gelato Confetti Sequins here and there using only the clear and pink from the gorgeous mix of pastel colors. I glued those down with Tim Holtz Multi Matte Medium. I buy the small squeeze bottle for this. If I put too much down, it dries clear with no gloss so you can't tell I messed up on it.


The flowers are by Prima. The stamp set I used for the sentiment is Altenew's Thinking of You.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
