Cards from the summer

 I have a few cards to catch up on.  These are some that I worked over the summer but didn't take time to photograph or post.

This last one I used the tissue paper from an Altenew package for the background.  I love when our companies send us a little extra that we can create with!

Word Card Making Day 2022

 It's Word Cardmaking Day and I finally found time to get to work!  Well, to be honest, I've been in my room a lot but working on other things.  I've been working out card boxes and folios and such for Christmas gift giving.  I'll show those later.

But onto what really matters ... the card I made today.  Yes, card - singular.  In fairness I managed to make two of these and it only took me four hours.  Okay, not really 4 hours but I had to clean up my room first.  I had the scraps of said card boxes and such all over the place and had to clean them up before I could start a new project.

I decided to do the PinkFresh Studio's challenge and made a card using mailing their products.  I LOVE how this turned out and will definitely be making more in this same vein.  PinkFresh has really great products and as I thought about the elements I wanted on this card I was happy that most were from them.

This card uses the following PinkFresh products:  Daisy Wreath stencils (I love their laying stencil sets), Folk Edge Circles (another absolute favorite), You sentiment, Leafy Branch.   The "are amazing" is from Stampin Up Expressions stamp set.

Funny story ... I had to redo the sentiment circle because the stamp says "you are amazing" and I covered the "are" instead of the "you" and didn't notice it until I was ready to post the picture.  I'm glad I saw it before hitting "publish".

You’re so bright

 I’ve had these sunglasses from Stamps of Life for quite some time and have been looking for a card to use them on. I love how this came out. 

Bonus: I used up some patterned paper.

New crafty goodies

 I love when crafty goodies come in the mail. I’ve got some in the mail box but it is raining so they’ll have to wait. 

I did play with stencils for a Pinkfresh floral background stamp and the Pinkfresh rose bunch stamp.

Birds and Flowers

 I'm trying to use up some of my stash - backgrounds, flowers, birds ... things I've created while playing with new stamp sets and dies.

I'm trying to use different elements other than flowers on my cards.  So today's examples are with birds...and, oh yay, flowers!

Thanks for stopping by.  Susan

More cards

 I haven't posted for awhile and when I looked back, I haven't made many new cards for awhile.  I was working on my Grandsons' scrapbooks.

Here are a few new cards.

Cards with a purpose

 So much is going on in our world and without faith in God it could be very frightening.  But I know He is control even though I don't understand why.  Praying for the people of Ukraine. 

I have seen cards all over Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #CardsforUkraine.  It is our way of showing support to the Ukranian people in our own small way.  Here is my card that show my support.

On a light note, those of you from Ohio know how hard it was to make a card with these colors as they are Michigan State colors.

I've seen a lot of sweet birds on cards lately.  In my search for some, I now have this layered stamp along with several bird dies.  Hopefully you will see more bird cards from me soon.

This layered stamp, die, coloring stencils, and embossing folder set is just lovely.  I said I wasn't going to buy more flowers but I just love this set.  I also broke down and bought a daffodil laying die set.  Daffodils are my favorite flower so I just had to have it.

I'm off to celebrate my grandson being named "student of the month".  Thanks for stopping by, Susan.
