Cardinal Card

     There are 6 of these cards in the Door Prize package.  This is one of my favorite stamps for winter cards!

Items for special market

     Today, I sold some of these items at a Christmas Market sponsored by Prairie Sky Farmer's Market which I have been a member of since July, 2015.  It was a great day!  The greeting card set in the bag was my door prize today.  It is a set of 6 Christmas cards.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!  Have a great weekend!

Back To School Treats

     One of the vendors makes and sells chocolates at our farmer's market.  When I saw these cute little turtles, I knew they would be the perfect little "back to school" gift for my co-workers.  The little bags are made from Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and the sentiment is done with A Round Array Stamp Set (retired), 7/8" Scalloped Circle Punch and the 1" Circle Punch.  The clothes pins are from a craft store.

Sticky Note Holders.

     We all have people in our lives that we like to share a little gift with - maybe for a birthday or a thank you or for Christmas.  Here are a few sticky note pad holders I made recently.  The images are all done with Stampin' Up products.

Wedding/Anniversary Cards

     Here are some more embossed wedding/anniversary cards.  I usually like to do them in  the couple's wedding colors as much as possible.

Wedding/Anniversary Cards

    I have been asked about wedding cards and anniversary cards at the Farmer's Market I am part of so I decided to do some a few weeks ago.  They are very simple and yet pretty.

Tree Cards.

     This is one of 4 cards I made with the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, Daffodil Delight,  Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Classic Ink Pads  A post it note was used to mask the moon in the  background.  These are so much fun to make.  Sentiments were made separately so the cards can be customized.

Flowering Fields Note Card Set

Tea Match Books

     These tea matchbooks were personalized for a recent bridal shower I was at.  They can be custom made for any occasion as favors.

Graduation Explosion Card.

     Here is a graduation explosion card made for a friend of mine.  I used the Pure Gumption stamp set (retired) from Stampin' Up!  I also used sentiments from the Perfect Pairing stamp set and Express Yourself stamp sets.  I believe these are both retired sets.  The explosion piece is a piece of copy paper.  I prefer to do grad cards in the colors of the grad's school to make it more personal.

Tunnel Card

     This is my first tunnel card.  I want to thank Sandi MacIver, Independent Demonstrator, Stampin' Up! for the challenge to make one.  It is a prairie theme.  Materials used are the Wetlands stamp set and Delightful Dijon Classic ink from Stampin' Up!, Artist Loft soft pastels and a barn stamp by Inkadinkado  The geese are stamped with black Stazon ink.  I used the Oval framelits from Stampin' Up! for the window.

"30th" Birthday Card

     This past Sunday (April 17), my daughter had her 30th birthday.  She has packed so much life into these 30 years!   This background seemed so appropriate for her card since she has visited so many countries and is currently living in another country.  So proud of her passion and heart for helping others!

     For this card I used the Going Global embossing folder and the numbers from Large Numbers framelits.  The sentiment was stamped with a stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Watermelon Wonder ink and punched out with the Word Window Punch.  The numbers and card base are Watermelon Wonder as well.  

Sunset Birthday Card

    Another fun card I made recently.  I love the sunset back ground with the boat on  the water!  The birds are from the Wetlands stamp set, the sentiment is from The Sky is the Limit stamp set (stamped with Jet Black Stazon ink.  The kayak is one that my friend printed for me.  I used Artist Loft soft pastels for the back ground.

Camping Birthday Cards

     These are two birthday cards I did recently and really enjoyed doing them!  The tent was stamped right on to the background and again on a separate piece so I could color it and cut it out for a 3D effect.  I used the trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, the tent from the Great Outdoors stamp set (retired) and the sentiment from The Sky is the Limit stamp set.

Mother's Day Cards

     With Mother's Day quickly coming up, I thought I would share these Mother's Day cards using the Nice Cuppa stamp set and framelits.  I love this set and it is still available till May 31st!  The flower paper behind the tea cup panels is from last spring's Sale-A-Bration selection.   The world embossed on the front panels is from the Going Global embossing folder still available till May 31.  I used Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride card stock for these cards.

Birthday Card

     Here is another birthday card made for the same customer (she ordered 12 birthday cards).  This one also uses the Sky is the Limit stamp set and the Going Global embossing folder.  The embossing folder is still available till May 31.   I punched the circles with the 2" circle punch and the 13/4" circle Punch.  Marina Mist card stock was used for the card base and the 13/4" circle.  Marina Mist ink was used for the sentiment.  

Birthday Cards.

     I have some new cards to share with you!  These are 3 birthday cards for a customer.  The Sky is the Limit was the stamp set used for these.  I also used Marina Mist ink for the back ground and the clouds are from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.   Marina Mist card stock was used for the card bases. All parts of these cards were from Stampin' Up!  Unfortunately The Sky is the Limit stamp set is no longer available.
