Notes πŸ“ Day 1

Welcome!

Soo.. This was going to be a, “Monogrammed” series, but when I looked up the definition, I found for something to be monogrammed, it needs to be 2 or more letters combined to make an image. Since I got a head start this weekend, my cards do not fit the bill. I quickly shifted gears and renamed my series.

This is going to be a fun series. I have lots of different styles to share with you. Have a great week!

Until tomorrow…

Butterflies πŸ¦‹ Day 6

Welcome!

Another gorgeous day here in Wisconsin! I took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a nice walk after dinner.

Today’s card uses a stamp set from Concord and 9th. I stamped the image with black ink and then colored the images using Catherine Pooler inks, almost giving it a watercolored look. I embossed the left side of the panel for an added touch of interest. I popped the panel up with foam tape and topped it off with the perfect sentiment from Taylored Expressions.

Until tomorrow…

Butterflies πŸ¦‹ Day 5

Welcome!

Another day of mindless crafting. We painted the inside of our house last year and I had gathered a bunch of paint samples in the process of picking out paint colors. I also bought a butterfly punch around the same time.

Almost a year later, I finally dug out those samples and put together this beautiful card. I love the mix of colors, shapes and bling.

Happy Friday.

Until tomorrow…

Butterflies πŸ¦‹ Day 4

Happy July 4th to my American friends and fellow bloggers! I hope your day is perfect for celebrating with friends and family πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

I love creating cards that I start off by not having a plan in mind. I believe that is called, “Mindless Crafting.” By going about it that way, I can never be disappointed with the end result πŸ˜€

Until tomorrow…

Butterflies πŸ¦‹ Day 2

Welcome!

I hope you are having a great start to your week! It is so beautiful outside today. I just had to take advantage of the sunshine for today’s photo.

This card was fun to make. I used a stencil I purchased from Tuesday Morning last winter. I blended Catherine Pooler Inks for the background and then used my Concord and 9th butterfly stamp and sentiment as the focal point. I love how it turned out!

Until tomorrow…

Happy Anniversary πŸŽ‰ Day 2

Welcome!

Today’s card was not planned out at all. I received some very inexpensive stencils from Wish.com. I believe I received 12 stencils for the cost of shipping, which was only $3! I planned on using the stencils for backgrounds in my journals, but decided to use this one as my focal point.

Once I stenciled the cats and butterflies, the paper looked too stark, so I embossed the entire front and then added some yellow to dim the bright white of the paper.

Not my best work, but as a cat lover, I would love to receive it. I’m saying this as my cat is snuggling up to me on the couch.

Have a great Tuesday!

Until tomorrow…

Thinking of You πŸ€” Day 6

Welcome!

Today, I have another Pinterest inspired handcrafted card. My hubby had to help me with this card. I’m not very good at centering my paper pieces, so I had to call in for some help!

I ended up making this card in a few different colors. It was fun! I hope you like it.

Until tomorrow…
