Guest Designer for Color My Heart


I cannot begin to explain how excited I am to be a Guest Designer for Color Dare!!! I had seen this blog a while a go and had been wanting to start participating.  Several weeks ago I started and it was so much fun I needed to do it again and again….  I highly recommend giving Color My Heart’s Color Dare a try, their color combinations usually inspire me to to create something fun.

This week the color challenge  #98 is Buttercup and Indian Corn Blue.  Here is the card I created.

Color Dare #98 ~


It was fun to make this flower using fabric.  I cut a 1″ by  ” strip of fabric.  I pulled some of the strands to make the frayed look.  I then took a needle and used a running stitch on the opposite side of the fray.  I then pulled the thread so the fabric gathered and then sewed it to the other side, resulting in a rosette style flower.

For this card I used the following products:

  • Paper Pack ~Jubilee
  • Cardstock ~ Indian Corn Blue, Buttercup and Colonial White
  • Embellishments ~ Chantilly Fabrics, Opaque flourish, Blue Buttons, yellow bakers twine
  • Stamp Set ~ Artiste Collection Word Balloons

Happy Crafting!


Sympathy Cards

It seems like lately I have unfortunately been needing to send a lot of sympathy cards. This is always a hard time when a friend looses a love one whether it is for a human or a companion animal. I wanted the cards I designed for those that have lost loved ones to be subtle and delicate enough to be sent with a sympathy gift (visit here for a place to find a good sympathy gift). Here are a couple of cards I designed.

In this card I used CTMH A Blossom stamp set, sweet leaf card stock, lagoon card stock, dotty for you paper and sweet leaf and lagoon ink.

For these two cards I used some scraps along with CTMH colonial card stock, blush ink, indian corn blue ink and 4 my friends stamp set.
