Kaleidoscope DSP, Painted Blooms DSP, Basic Gray, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, ink – VersaMark, dies – Papertrey Ink (numbers), Reverse Confetti (tag), Simon Says Stamp (banner strip), Taylored Expressions (tag), embossing folder – Stampin’ Up!, jewels – Swarovski, sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white.


Butterfly Wreath with Embossed Background Birthday Card

I really like all of the texture on this card!

I put away my papercrafting supplies for 2 days and made some different face masks to try for personal use (not for sale).

I mass produced the pleated style last spring and summer for family members. We all need some fresh masks – elastic is stretched, washing wear & tear. The clam shell one is white muslin – I had too many sizes to chose from, and I didn’t want to waste pretty fabric if I guessed wrong.

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Reverse Confetti, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Highland Heather, inks – Copic V04, Y35, YG25, YR68, VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, dies – Reverse Confetti (tag, wreath), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white, Stampendous Detail clear.


Let’s Venti Note Card

I stumbled upon this paper pieced coffee cup in one of my folders and I had to use it.

Longing for a time when we can say, “Meet me at Barnes & Noble to catch up!”

Supplies:  Stamps – Avery Elle, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Sour Apple, Reverse Confetti From Cupid, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Avery Elle (coffee cup), Spellbinders (circle).

Heart and Ion Valentine Card

Butterfly Wreath Spread Kindness Card

Can you believe I spent a little time at the craft table?

I have made a few small crafting purchases, trying to support the small businesses that I love. I finally purchased the butterfly wreath set from Reverse Confetti.

I colored it with Copics, and used one of my favorite summer color combinations – aqua, coral, yellow.

Go spread some kindness!

No One Elf Gift Tag

How many gift tags do I have left from last year???  I will need to dig them out to count them!

And yes, I know the sentiment is too low on the tag. I was struggling to get the long skinny stamp to stay straight, and I was out of time to reset it and stamp again.
