Christmas Ornaments

Christmas Tree
This year our church decided to have a tree with ornaments on it to raise money for the Lottie Moon Christmas offering. People were to make donations in Honor or in Memory of someone and make a donation of $5.00. This year we had 203 ornaments. I wrote on each ornament and and decorated the ornaments. See below.

We used die cuts of crosses, cutouts of angels, and doves on the back and used glitter to decorate.

Weekend stamping Fun

Had a great weekend on Saturday playing with a friend and our stamps. The above card was made using Heartfelt Creations stamps and die cuts. The next cards were from the Autumn Card Maker kit I received this month. The papers were wonderful.

Wanted to post this card I did for the ladies where I use to work. Hope they are still enjoying them.

Christmas in July Post

Sharing some of the cards I have created during July. It was a lot of fun doing these in July when it's been so HOT here. It was to get up to 101 today. The card above was from Flourishes. The stamps below are from Our Daily Bread Designs.

This next set of cards is from Just Rite Stampers. They have some very simple but neat stamps.
I used card stock I picked up last year at the end of the season at Michael's for the base of the card. These were quick.

Enjoyed making these cards using the stamps by Flourishes. I stamped on Close to My Heart white cardstock with Memento Ink. I then colored them with Copic Markers. Added dimension to the humming bird and to a few flowers and leaves by stamping on extra cardstock and cutting them out.

Luau Cards

Our church is participating in giving a birthday party for prisoners at one of the local prisons in late June. We were to send invitations and provide a Birthday card. On Memorial day several ladies from our church joined me in creating 20 invitations and 20 birthday cards. Here are our creations.

Spirelli Cards

Recently I came upon a card kit sold by Card Makers. This kit had a project book with 6 ideas and supplies to create 6 different cards. There were enough supplies to create 10 cards in the kit. I love the colors and would never have thought to put these together. I got busy and made 5 of the cards they suggested. I choose to not make the sixth card and used supplies to make multiplies of the cards I really liked. So far I've made seven cards from this kit and have enjoyed doing them. Who knew you could have so much fun with Spirelli.

Dollar Tree & Scripture Stamps

The cards that are presented here were made using the scripture passages from Our Daily Bread Designs and Clear Dollar Stamps. I purchased the lovely cards from the Dollar Tree and added the scriptures to them. I loved these and there are matching mini journals. I will add a matching Bookmark to create a gift ensemble.

Feel the Love

If you have come to this site from ODBD please click on the second name to find the contest entry for ODBD.

This is my entry into the Flourishes contest for "Feel the Love". I have used cardstock found at Michaels' along with a sizzix die cut from years ago. I have loads of those die cuts I pull out from time to time. I'm so glad I bought those back then. The center hearts are on pop dots giving the card some dimension. Feel the love!!! The design came from a workshop I attended in South Carolina during December and was originally a christmas card. I adapted it for Valentines and think it would make a great design for all ocassions.
