Nature Heals

Today's card has already gone out in the mail and hopefully arrives today. I love this sentiment stamp, and I know it's true in my own life: nature brings healing and peace.
For this card I used the color combination from Hand Stamped Sentiments, and the sketch from The Paper Players
Stamps: Peaceful Cabin, Nature's Harvest
Ink: Misty Moonlight
Paper: Smoky Slate, Rich Razzleberry, Misty Moonlight, Basic White
Accessories: Flowers for All Seasons ribbon, Metallic Pearls, Timeworn Type embossing folder, Dimensionals, big shot (retired)

I hope you are getting some time to be creative this week! It's been pretty rare lately, haha, but I sure enjoy it, and I know it brightens the day of the person who receives the card too. So make sure you share your creations too!

Sunny Coneflowers!

An afternoon post because I just got this card finished AND I think I'm too late to link up anyway, but! I am sharing it because I think it worked out to be lovely and maybe YOU could use some sunny thoughts today too!! But if you wondered, I did use the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, which ended today. 
I googled images of coneflowers and wanted yellow to go with the sunny greeting, so I kind of stippled the Cherry, Pumpkin and Black Blends in the center of the flower. I also used the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend to color the gingham ribbon. 

Stamps: Nature's Harvest, Sunny Sentiments
Stampin' Blends: Light & Dark Old Olive, Light & Dark Daffodil Delight, Light Cherry Cobbler, Dark Pumpkin Pie, Dark Basic Black 
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizazz, Very Vanilla card stocks
Accessories: Black Gingham ribbon, Harvest Dies, Timeworn Type Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, big shot (retired) 
Ink: Memento Black, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Old Olive

Lighthouse Congrats

I did get one thing made yesterday, so that's happy, haha.
And that means I have something new to share with you today!
But best of all, it was dropped off at the post office in time to go out!! 

This card uses the sketch from the latest Fusion Challenge, and I flipped it sideways. The DP is retired, and so is the tiny brad in the center of the compass, but I love how it all turned out! 

Stamps: Sailing Home
Ink: Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight, Balmy Blue, Smoky Slate
Paper: Basic White & Balmy Blue card stocks, Come Sail Away DP (retired) 
Accessories: Smooth Sailing Dies, Flowers For All Seasons ribbon, Dimensionals, Mini Brads (retired)

World Card Making Day #3

Guess what?! My mom's order arrived sooo I made one more card to share with you today! This one uses the TGIF Challenge color combination, which I think is gorgeous! 

Stamps: Nature's Harvest
Ink: Blackberry Bliss
Paper: Very Vanilla, Blackberry Bliss, Basic Black card stocks
Accessories: Scalloped Lace Trim, Gingham Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Harvest Dies, big shot

How about you? Did you get to make any cards today? 

World Card Making Day #2

Continuing with World Card Making Day, I challenge YOU to mail out at least one card this weekend to someone in need of a hug. I KNOW you know someone, and now that they've come to mind, you're really gonna want to send that off.... 

This card used the inspiration from The Card Concept.
I used the suggested colors, the wood background, the sunflowers and foliage and the gingham ribbon for my card. And let me tell you, it took some time!! haha.... Not only die cutting (22 flower bits, and a bunch of "grass") but then gluing it all down and making it all fit! And then the fluffing! haha! But! I am really happy with it. I think it is a very cheerful card and I'm excited to mail it out! 
Stamps: Garden Wishes 
Ink: Garden Green
Paper: Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Garden Green & Early Espresso card stocks, In Good Taste DP
Accessories: Gingham Ribbon, Dandy Wishes dies

Tell you what - if you send off a card this week, and comment here that you did so, I'll enter you for a drawing and I'll send the winner some little surprise. Really really. Now mail it off! 

World Card Making Day #1

Happy Saturday to you! I don't often post on Saturdays, but today is World Card Making Day! I am already committed to a lot today, but I didn't want you to miss out on some inspiration! I have two cards for you at the time of writing this, but I might get more made... we'll see....
I've scheduled them a few hours apart, to keep you thinking and crafting. 

This first card looks more complicated than it was. I was immediately inspired by the sketch on the Try Stamping on Tuesday blog to use the sun rays. I think this set is so perfect to send to someone going thru a hard time, and I would imagine we all know someone like that. And I know exactly who I'm sending this one to. Anyway, to use the sketch, I used some old washi tape to tack down scrap paper to "mask off" the area I wanted cloudy, and then the area I wanted sunny. Super easy, very impactful!
Stamps: After The Storm
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, Gray Granite, Basic Gray
Paper: Crushed Curry & Basic White card stocks
Accessories: Dimensionals

Come back later and see what else I've got for you!

We Create Blog Hop: Haunts & Harvest

Happy October to you! What?! I have no idea how we got here already.....
But happily, a new month means a new blog hop, so here we are! 
Since it's October, I decided to make a cute little Halloween card. *I don't send them much, but as I've mentioned in years past, my mom took on her mother's tradition of sending them out to the grandkids. And I know I'll use this little girl in upcoming scrapbook pages because I happen to have a little girl who loves Halloween possibly even more than Christmas!

Today's card uses the color challenge from Color Throwdown, along with a sketch I flipped, from My colors aren't exact because I had to use the Stampin' Blends I have, haha, but I think it worked. 
Stamps: Seasons of Fun (hostess only), Lovely You
Ink: Memento Black, Blackberry Bliss
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White card stock, Beauty of the Earth DP
Accessories: Gingham Ribbon
Stampin' Blends: Light & Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light & Dark Old Olive, Light & Dark Blackberry Bliss, Dark Petal Pink, Bronze

This stamp set is soo sweet, and it is hostess-only (in the July-Dec mini, page 78) so if you want it, you'll want to host a workshop, gather some friend to help place an order, or order $150 in products yourself.

Now hop on over to Jeanna's blog, using the button below, and see what she's created for you. 
Then hop thru to everyone's, we're a small group. Let us know what you think- we all love feedback! And make something yourself this weekend to pop in the mail to brighten someone's day!
