Here is the birthday card I made for my SIL. We get to go visit them this weekend!! Yeah!! I made this card similar to the one for the Magnolia-licious challenge, and I think I like this one better. I just got this new stamp from Whiff of Joy, and I love it. It was fun to color. I used my distress inks and some watercolor paper.
I finally had a chance to sit down and work on a card for the Magnolia-licious May Challenge. This one was fun, but I made a second similar card that I think I like a little better. What do you think? See my other post for today.
Paper: Basic Grey - Eva , Arches Watercolor paper
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with flowing hair, Northwoods (Happy Birthday)
This Mother's Day card is for my birth mother. I met her when I was about 21 years old. She has 3 other children, and I stay in touch mostly with my half-sister, Stephanie. Well, I did before she got married and had a baby. She's just as busy as me now, LOL!!
This is a Mother's Day card for my mom. That is, my mom that raised me. I was adopted, and also have a card to show you that I sent to my birth mother, and also my mother-in-law.
The rose stamp is from Rosebud Rubber Stamps, and will be available soon as a digital image stamp. I am still setting up the store for the digital stamp. If you are interested, please send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Paper: BasicGrey Bittersweet -hand-dipped, red and white card stock
Okay...this is my first "challange" card. I had fun making this card. I made it for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #44. I'll have to enter more challenges. It's a little easier to design a card when there is a sketch to follow!!!! This one is an easel card. Please click on the pictures for a better look.
Paper: background (roses & reverse green script) -TPC Studio "Ancestrial Bird Brocade, DCWV (strip with vines and blug glitter flowers) -sorry, I cut off the pattern name :( , 5 different shades of kraft from my stash, watercolor paper
I'm on a roll now!! My 3rd Tilda and I'm headed to my stamp room to make more!! I had fun masking and using my stamp positioner on this one. Another "blue" card with some slightly warmer colors this time around. I used the bow easy to make the bow and I only have 1 handmade rose on this card (the larger blue one).
Paper: Vintage Blue Roses-Paper Pizazz, navy blue stock, misc. paper from my stash (handmade paper with flowers, and speckled paper -sentiment tag), thick white mulberry paper for the white roses, watercolor paper
staz-on black ink, distress inks, colorbox midnight blue (tag), mementos black (sentiment)
Handmade white roses, prima blue roses, "weeds" from Michael's dried flower section
MS branch punch, MS rose leaf punch, MS arch border punch, MS butterfly punch
I used the crop-a-dile to punch holes in the chipboard. I simply used a piece of paper and a 3-hole punch as a template. I just layed the punched white paper on top of the chipboard and lined up the crop-a-dile to punch the holes. here is a little video I found that shows how to punch holes with the crop-a-dile.
The binder I purchased was a 1" binder and fit about 6 sheets of chipboard. I was worried that I might not get to put magnets on both sides of the chipboard in case the magnets stuck together, but no worries!! It works perfectly. The pages are nice and stiff, so they don't flop around, and it's easy to flip through and see what I have. The dies stay in place and don't fall off. The notebook is a little heavy. It weighs about 5 pounds with 50 different sets of dies.
Here is my old storage system. If anyone is interested in purchasing these cases, I have about 30 of the square CD cases (with magnets), and about 9 of the larger rectangular cases (with magnets.) Send me an email at: email@example.com
