My Creative Time: Inspire Me Wednesday: Thank you

Hi, today is Inspire Me Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. I have a very special card to share today that is not only a thank you card but also a sweet memento. I just had a little girl a little over a week ago and my mom has been here helping us out. So I wanted to create a card for her letting her know how much we appreciate her and all she has done. I also wanted it to have a personal touch from my daughter. So this project was inspired by my daughter as well as this card I found on Pinterest


I first cut out a small white card stock mat using the. I then used non-toxic embossing ink and inked up her little foot. I stamped her little foot image on the mat and sprinkled some sparkly pink embossing powder on top. I then stamped the "thank you" sentiment on the bottom of the mat from the You Are A Blessing stamp set. I then added a small pink heart to the foot print image that was cut out by using the Stitched Heart Layering Dies. I added Glossy Accents and Wink of Stella to the heart.


I layered the white mat with a pink mat that was also cut out using the More Stitched Rectangular Dies. I layered the smaller pink mat with a Stitched Postage Frame Die cut that was cut out once in white card stock and once in vellum. They were layered together and then added to the back of the small pink mat. The Stitched Postage die cut was then layered with a larger pink mat that was cut out using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies. Then a white card base was added to the back of the larger pink mat. The card was then finished by adding four little sequins.

Today I am showcasing the beautiful new All Is Calm Stamp Set.



I found this neat wooden ornament at Michaels and thought it would be fun to decorate the front of it  using this pretty new stamp set.

The little deer silhouette was cut out using a die from the All Is Calm Stamp Set. The little red nose was added using a small circle die cut from the Holidays Tags Stamp & Die Set. Then the deer silhouette was topped with Glossy Accents.

The white card stock circle was cut out using the More Stitched Circle Dies  Then it was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The circle was then layered with a pretty red doily that was cut out using the Bunch of Stitched Doily Dies.



The wreath was stamped on white card stock using a green embossing powder and then cut out using a coordinating die from the All Is Calm stamp set. It was added to the bottom of the circle and then embellished with some mini red sequins. Now we have a beautiful ornament to hang on our Christmas tree in a couple of months.

My Creative Time: Thoughtful Thursday

Hi, today is Thoughtful Thursday over on the My Creative Time blog. I've created a simple "hello" card to let someone know I'm thinking of them. 


The first vellum mat layer was cut out using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies. Then a black card stock Stitched Postal Frame Die cut was added. The pattern paper mat layer was cut out using the More Stitched Rectangular Dies. Then a white card stock card base was added to the back of the vellum mat. 

The word "hello" was cut out twice using the Big Hello Die. They were glued onto each other and then added to the card. A small little butterfly was added to the card that was cut out using the Mini Butterfly Dies. Then Glossy Accents was added to the word hello and the middle of the butterfly. It was also added to the pattern paper to create a small butterfly trail. Before the Glossy Accents dried, a fine glitter was added onto them to add a bit of sparkle. To finish the card, it was embellished with some clear pearl mini sequins.
