Post Valentine’s Day Creations

Handmade Be Mine Banner

In the midst of Purging my loft I came across some lightweight canvas. I turned it into pennants for a banner.

I began the creative process knowing I wanted to stencil some color. I grabbed some shimmer sprays and a favorite music stencil. to add some interest.

A cardstock panel and grommets were added. I used my cricut maker to mirror image the letters on glitter on iron on vinyl. Ironed them on with my cricut easy press 2 for a very professional look. In cleaning my drawers, I came across a couple silk roses I had made and a few gold hearts. I created the felt heart and balls that separate each pennant.

The cards were created from all found pieces and bits in my room stash. The only exception is the Be mine card. Tha is made with dies from Trinity Stamps, Elizabeth Crafts and Poppystamps.

I am working on getting cards, supplies and unused product listed here on my shop page. It seems as though wordpress has made a few changes that I am having to learn.

Creatively yours,

Set of Birthday Cards

I was a busy girl this weekend. I attended my first ever On stage Live with Stampin Up! It rejuvenated my creative mojo! I’ll talk more about that in another post.

Today I am sharing a group of cards that all have the same image in them, but they are all a little bit different. I would love your opinion on which version you prefer. The very first card was my inspiration for the others. I basically stamped the image Penny Black Your Birthday Stamp in Hero Arts Intense Black ink and colored with my Copic Markers. The very first card is the one that inspired the rest. Let me know which one is your favorite!

To make these cards, I went to my pre-cut and scored card-bases along with my pre-diecut shaped pieces. I pulled coordinating colors and a variety of pre-done sentiments to create the designs here. Finally adding a few sequins to complete the looks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Creatively yours,

Birthday Bear wishes SVG

Good Afternoon Friends! Welcome, today I have a paper pieced SVG from Little Scraps of Heaven. The most adorable bear holding a cupcake. A little known fact about me is that I used to design for an SVG company making all sorts of these cute files. I had an itch to make one after attending a creative getaway in Lake Tahoe with a few friends.

I looked on my computer at all the files I had purchased and came across this one and thought how cute it would be for a Birthday Card! Using Cricut Design Space application I uploaded my file. Going through my scrap bin of paper and cut out each piece. Carefully inking them with chalk ink before assembling him to place on the card. Now the beauty of SVG’s are you can change the size that you want it to be! I, however just imported it and cut it..:) so it is quite large and I had to make a 6 x 6 Card!

The patterned paper, tag die and sentiment are from The Stamps Of Life. The Oval Scallop Die is Elizabeth crafts. All Cardstock is from my scrap bin. While cleaning my studio I came across an old tool by Imanginece (not sure if they are still around?) a hot tool that applied my rhinestones.

I hope you enjoy this card, I had fun making it. Let me know in the comments what you might like to see here on my blog, Facebook page or instagram.

Creatively Yours,
