Handmade Teacher Appreciation Cards

It's that time again!  The school year is almost gone and you'll want to be sure and thank your child's teacher for all their hard work this year.  I have created a few different cards for my Etsy shop.
This design is one I found on Pinterest last year and it was a best seller, so I used it again this year, just different papers.  So cute!  See all the details about that HERE.
This design I also found on Pinterest.  It's adorable!  I used my Cricut for the die cut and a Paper Smooches stamp for the sentiment.
And lastly, one more design I found on Pinterest.  This one uses a vintage Kim Hughes stamp for the apple and the thanks.  NOTE:  Of course when I use other peoples designs, I always put my own twist on the card but if you'd like to see any of the original cards, please check out my "I LOVE IT" board on Pinterst.

Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Mother's Day Cards for the Kitty Lover

Hello there! Does anyone send greeting cards anymore? What about handmade cards?  I would love to get a handmade card in the mail!  I feel like this fun ritual of sending cards for special occasions has dwindled since I started all this back in 2007, I think it was.

Anyway, I still make them and put them in my Etsy shop and on a rare occasion, someone will purchase one.  It's still very fun for me and as I said on Instagram a few days ago, it's like a therapy session for me when I sit down and create cards.
These cards were all created using the LawnFawn stamp set called "Meow You Doin'" and of course its all about cats as you can see.  My favorite part of using the LawnFawn stamps is the little die cuts that you can get for each set to cut out each stamp beautifully.  Love it!

The card above is NOT for sale because its for MY sweet mama!  I used my Cricut Expressions machine and the  Cuttin' Up cartridge to cut out (at 1" each) the letters,  Everything else is from the stamp set.
I still use my Copic markers to color my stamps with and no, I'm still not really good at it, but hey, its FUN!

The card above is listed in my Etsy shop if you're interested.  I also used my Cricut for the letters, but these have the shadow feature used as well.  The inside reads: Wishing You A Pawsome Day.
This card is also for sale.  It's a Z fold card and is just a bit more interesting than the standard folding card I normally make.  The letters were also cut using my Cricut, but they are cut at 1 1/4" this time.

All of my cards come with an envelope for mailing and they are ALL FREE SHIPPING for you!

Check out my Etsy store if you're interested.


Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Elephant Wish Big Birthday Card

Hello! I recently got the Elphie Selfie stamp set by Lawn Fawn and I just can't stop making cards with it!  This sweet little guy is ready to wish that special someone a happy birthday with his balloon, birthday cake and a big wish!
I used the Elphie Selfie stamp set and the die cuts that go with it to create my card.  I purchased mine from Hallmark Scrapbook.  They offer A+ customer service and speedy shipping too!
First I stamped all my images on white card stock, then colored them with my Copic markers and then used the die cuts to cut them all out.
I used my Nesties to cut out the circles that the die cuts sit on.  I stamped the wish big directly onto the white circle.  Lastly I used some foam tape to pop up the elephant, his balloon and the cake.  The heart is glued directly to the white circle.

This sweet card is available in my Etsy store if you're interested.

Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Sweet Little Frog Prince Card

On the off chance you didn't already know, I make cards (well you already knew that, duh!) and I sell them in my Etsy shop.  I give some away to family and friends too, but mostly I just love to sit and use my scraps to create little one of a kind works of art and then they pile up and that's why I have an Etsy shop!
Making cards is seriously like therapy for me.  I zone out without a care in the world and just create.  Love it!  I've had this little frog stamp forever, no really, forever!  I came across him the other day and decided he needed to be on a card.
I colored him with my Copics of course and and then cut him out using my Nesties.  Isn't he the sweetest?  I decided to add some jewels to his crown, he is a prince after all! Ha!
Just in case you're interested, he's for sale in my Etsy shop and I don't charge for shipping!  Go stock up because who doesn't love FREE SHIPPING!

Thanks for looking!  Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)
