Bicycle Birthday

Again - card parts! This bicycle image has been in my card parts for several years. It was from a friend in our stamping group from Canada. Thanks again, Annie!

I don't know what company makes the stamp, but it was stamped on black and embossed with white sparkly embossing powder. I wish you could see the glimmer! Also on my table was this die-cut panel. It uses another die from the Distressed Addington Collage die set from Memory Box. I put some black cardstock behind the cut-out. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I mounted the entire panel on foam squares. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Christmas 2016

My first Christmas card for 2016. I really, really would like to use up my card parts. I truly thought it was an unobtainable goal, but I'm making some progress. (I also want to use all my SU! stamps, my stickers, my patterned paper, etc. :) ) So, this is another "card parts" card.

The "Joy" is a layered dimensional sticker from Pooch and Company - from the dollar (well, what used to be the dollar area) at Michael's. I've had the stickers for several years. This one was already mounted on the green diamond. I glued it on a piece of textured ivory cardstock and matted with a matching green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment, from Verve, in a coordinating ink.

One-Sheet Wonder

I have, for a long time, wanted to try the "One-Sheet Wonder." It was finally time:) My friend, Michele, has this post of her design for cutting the 12 x 12 sheet, and also the cards she made with her pieces. Looking back at it now, I see that she matted her pieces with black. I like that better. Wish I had matted mine! Maybe next time. Anyway, here are my fourteen cards. All cardstock is off-white. I will put my cards in the order of Michele's pieces. I cut my pieces the same as hers (with a little exception) but didn't follow her layouts for all of them. I used a Memory Box die for the rectangles with sentiments in them.

This first one uses a stamp from Stampabilities.

February Calendar Page

Time for a new calendar page - February is here already!

I used a very old die Cuttlebug for the heart and its layers. The white background was embossed with a Darice embossing folder.

My calendar files are available for your use, if you'd like. The links are under the blog title. I'd love to hear from you if you use them!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Lighthouse Sympathy

I stamped this lighthouse (from My Favorite Things) on the card front, trying to use my sparkly die-cut piece that ultimately ended up on yesterday's card. That didn't work, either. But, I really liked the lighthouse so I made it into this card. I masked off the right side of the card before I stamped it. I added the patterned paper from Recollections. I stamped the sentiment (from Stampabilities) onto a strip of white cardstock and added it over the patterned paper.
