Welcome Home 🏡 Day 4

Welcome!

I have to tell you about my drive into work this morning! It was so incredibly foggy outside, plus it was pouring rain. I had such a hard time seeing the road, much less too far in front of me. It was actually kind of scary. I’m so glad I don’t have a long commute. It was also before 6am so not much traffic to deal with. Crazy weather!

Back to my card I made for you tonight. I used Catherine Pooler’s stamp set. When I saw this stamp set, it truly touched me. It reminded me so much of the house I grew up in. The house was green for many years, until my parents had it stuccoed tan when I was a little older. I also like the shape of the house. It is exactly how I used to draw my houses and trees when I was little. Well, I still do draw them that same way today 🤗

Until tomorrow…

Welcome Home 🏡 Day 3

Welcome!

The rain continues, but it is slowly knocking down the snow banks and allowing me to see what’s coming up the road. I’m still worried about flooding because all the sewer drains are covered with snow.

Anyway, let me share with you today’s handcrafted card. This card features Altenew’s Heartfelt Sentiments stamp set. I also used my Empress for embossing, my Cricut for cutting and my Spectrum markers for coloring.

Until tomorrow…

Welcome Home 🏡 Day 2

Welcome!

It is starting to warm up here and the rain has started to fall. With all the snow that fell over the last few weeks, mixed with warmer weather and constant rain-I just pray we don’t have any flooding.

I sure do get off tack pretty easily, don’t I? 😊

Today’s card features Catherine Pooler‘s sentiment from her stamp set, “Happy Place.” I had an idea for tonight’s card, but it truly came together once I stamped, “There’s no place like home.” From there, I was able to build out the rest of the card.

Until tomorrow…

Welcome Home 🏡 Day 1

Welcome!

I am happy to share a new handcrafted card series with you this week. So many of my coworkers have purchased or are renting new homes and I haven’t really had any cards in hand to give them, so what better way to build up my stash! I will make a bunch over this next week and be ready for next time 😊

Today’s card was 100% Pinterest inspired. I used my Cricut and literally made the house by welding together a triangle, square and heart. That’s it! Pretty easy, I must say. I used Distress Oxide for color and also my Empress for embossing.

Until tomorrow…

Get Well 🤒 Day 7

img_0027Welcome!

Today I wrap up another handcrafted card series. These series have forced me to go outside my comfort zone and have helped me to be a more creative card making artisan. If you have a chance, please follow me on my Instagram account @gazellesentiments. I started the account last August and I’ve documented my journey through photos.

Today’s card I used Catherine Pooler‘s inks. The card almost has a watercolored feeling. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

New series starts tomorrow!

Until tomorrow…

Get Well 🤒 Day 3

Welcome!

I heard today we are getting more snow this weekend! It’s crazy. There isn’t any place for the plows to move the snow to.

Today I was driving and what used to be two lanes, was now only one lane because of the snow completely covered one full lane. Of course I was in the wrong lane and almost got into an accident trying to move over. As I drove further down the road, a big truck with a plow, went into the intersection right as I was coming down the hill. I had to come to a complete stop and then proceed to go around him because he was too big to back up. 😑

I sure hope it is nice and warm where you are today 😊

Tonight I have another handcrafted card to share with you that was inspired by Catherine Pooler Designs. I used her inks and stamps. I also used my Empress by Anna Griffin to emboss the card front. the little butterfly is from The Dollar Tree. Enjoy!

Until tomorrow…

Get Well 🤒 Day 2

Welcome!

As I write this, I’m not feeling too well. I just worked out, but as soon as I put my head backwards, my vertigo kicked in. Ugh-It really throws my system into a tailspin.

Anyway, I am excited to share today’s handcrafted card with you. It is once again inspired by Catherine Pooler Designs. She is absolutely amazing and her products are top notch!

Until tomorrow…

Becky ❤️
