Dreams and Sparkle

Thank you Karina for posting so many inspirational words of wisdom, from which come my best cards.

The hardest thing is to find the correct font....

A little touch of blue Copic, a few snowflakes for sparkle, and we are in business...




Until next time!

Blooming Cake

Blooming cake

A very simple card that could be used for different occasions.

I just stamped the cake image on blue card stock and added some puffy paint.

I then embossed a frame with my cuttlebug and a Lifestyle Crafts rectangle.


Until next time!

Caught a Bug?

Caught a Bug? Get well soon!

Another funny card, unfortunately the picture doesn't give it credit.

I used a Bug Stick from Stamps by Judith inside another of her stamp, a mini jar. 

I then colored a little with a blue Copic and added a 3D crystal Lacquer that when dry, look like glass.

I then framed the picture in black and in red.


Until next time!

Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah

A very clever idea, I'll say... not one of mine unfortunately.

A card that would go both way, for Christmas or Hanukkah depending which way you open it.

I printed the two sentiments and added a tree for Christmas, which double itself in a dreidel for Hanukkah. 


Until next time!

Thanks in Tiffany blue

 Another of Bird cutting file, and another adaptation. I made a similar card on November 2013, (post #418), and wanted a simpler one.

This is the results: a little piece of Tiffany blue paper and a heart stamp from Judith, one of those wonderful sticks I can't get tired of.


Until next time.

Clean and Simple Cutting Files Cards

Just a few CAS cards made with Bird's cutting files, (,
with a silver backing.




Until next time!

Snow Scene

A Snow Scene cut with my Silhouette Cameo using Bird cutting file. (

I added a few piece of card stock on the under side to mimic the light at the window and the driveway to the door.

On the blue background, I also stamped some snow flakes with the Snowflake stick from Stamps by Judith. 


Until next time!

Wedding Towels

Wedding Towels

Another twist to the Wedding Towels card I made 2 years ago (Congratulations Newly Weds, February 20, 2012, post #222), this one inspired from a post on the blog The creation of Creativity.

On a Kraft background with a printed sentiment, I placed two square Brads and a silver thread in between to hold a piece of material/paper split in two.

I added a punched red little heart.

This could work for an anniversary card or a congratulations.


The other card....


Until next time.

You Are the Bee's Knees

You're the Bee's Knees.

An old expression that is coming back in our days,  "you're the bee's knees" means, sweet and good. 

Thank you Jen for being the inspiration to this new card.
All sweet and good!


I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the background and printed the sentiment in two different fonts... I can't decide which one is better.

I had a sheet of bees for the longest time... I can't remember where I got it.

And this is it!

Until next time....
