Striped Anniversary Card

Has anyone seen my mojo? Or my crafting time?

Both have seemed to disappear this week.

So…a quick card for today. I love this the way it is, but, depending on who I send it to, I may add some flowers or foliage to the corners of the sentiment banner.

Have a nice weekend!

Supplies:  Stamp – Rubber Stampede, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine Better Together, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, ink – VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Sterling Silver.

Painted Blooms Anniversary Card

I had to hustle to make an anniversary card for the in-laws, and my mojo was GONE. I searched my paper collection and found this piece from Stampin’ Up! Painted Blooms. (Hubby even asked if I hand painted the card, so my efforts worked. I answered honestly…”not my work…very pretty paper”.  😉 )

Supplies: Stamp – Rubber Stampede, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Daffodil DelightPacific Point, Painted Blooms DSP (retired), ink – VersaMark, dies – My Favorite Things, butterfly punch – Martha Stewart, embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum.

On A Whim Birthday Card Duo

I have struggled with my mojo since my mother’s car accident (other tasks to do, mind going to different topics). So, I pulled out my favorite Amy Tangerine On A Whim paper pad, and made these cards. They made me happy…not exactly the most creative, but a step in the direction of creativity.

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, Reverse Confetti, paper – American Craft Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Malmero Perle Sparkle Green, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), embossing powders – Ranger clear, Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver, organdy ribbon – Offray.


Mazel Tov! Birthday Note Card

Offspring3 found this Mazel Tov! stamp in one of the Ellicott City Antique stores. The stamp has the copyright date of 1993…coincidentally, the recipient was born that year. Not sure that either qualify as “antique” – LOL!

Supplies: Stamps – Inkadinkado, Papertrey Ink, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, inks – Stampin’ Up! Summer Sun (retired), Tim Holtz/Ranger Blueprint Sketch, VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.

You Give Me Butterflies Card

This is another sentiment from my new My Favorite Things sentiment set.

The butterflies are all punched from American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim scraps with a Martha Stewart punch (it punches 2 small and one large butterfly at once, if you want 3 butterflies).

I did think, “oh, my, what have I gotten myself into??” about halfway through the gluing process. I am in love with the final card.

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Stardream Silver, ink – VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, punch – Martha Stewart, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.
