Mother's Day Flowers


I saw this card on Pinterest and loved it - I also have the wonderful Art Philosophy cart with which I can reproduce it somewhat so here is my version ... put together using Tombow, 3D foam tape and
Liquid glass.  The background is embossed with a folder I found at Walmart, of all places.

Have a fabulous day!

Laughing Lola cards

These were fun to make (I love rolling flowers!) - using up some Laughing Lola paper with the Artiste cartridge (bow and flower) and a retired stamp set, Say It In Style, stamped in Cocoa ink.

Just a reminder that ALL of the paper packs will be retired and only be available while supplies last in preparation for our new Annual catalogue which comes out August 1st.  If there is a paper you've been eying, I wouldn't wait on it.

Have a wonderful day!

Love You Forever and Always


This was from me just playing around - I hope you like it!  I used Design Space and the Cricut Explore to do the writing on and design of the card.  The 'heart' was from Artbooking, and I welded 'Love' onto it, then wrote with the Cricut ' you forever and always'.  The Silver paper from my stash was embossed with a Sizzix hearts folder.  The card shape itself is also from Artbooking.

Have a wonderful day!

Another Card in a Box!

I love making these cards in a box and I found the svg for it from here to make it even easier! I played around with it a bit to make it work in Design Space and then it worked great!  I used the Hooray Bouquet and Art Philosophy to cut and stamp the flowers with Honey, Indian Corn Blue, and Hollyhock inks and AP to cut the M's on each of the two flaps. Misc buttons I found at the dollar store, Happy Mother's Day is from Holiday Tags and the paper is the Ivy Lane paper pack.

Have a great day!

Everything's Coming Up Roses!


Everything is coming up roses today, including today's card!

I was playing around with Design Space and picked out one of their freebie cards - it was nice but needed something so Art Philosophy to the rescue!  I cut out a bunch of 1-1/2" roses, rolled them up, found some leaves that had already been cut for other projects, added those and then liquid pearls to finish it off!  I quite like it and hope you do to!

Products Used:

Art Philosophy
Liquid Pearl
Design Space freebie
Liquid Glass
misc leaves

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Mother's Day

This is a card I did in Design Space at 3 o'clock in the morning ... I used Edge to Edge - Daisy Flower Pattern Overlay for the background and the Black square and the Happy Mother's Day are from Artiste ...  the Daisy teacup came from Kate's ABCs  .... and I don't recall where the oval came from ... that's what you get when you create that early (or late) in the day!  LOL!

Have a wonderful day!

ps:  if you are getting this post again, I apologize ... something weird went on in Blogger and this post disappeared yet I received it in my email!  So I don't know if it did post or just sent me an email!  Gotta love technology!  LOL!
