Vintage Hello

Hi peeps!

Here's a card I made with the free Sale-a-bration stamp set 'Hello'.  As soon as I saw this set I knew I had to pair it with Timeless Textures.  I love how this card turned out, it's done with Gold embossing, Very Vanilla and Crumb of my favourite colour combinations.

I stamped the Hello and Birthday sentiment with VersaMark, then gold embossed it.  Next I added the Texture stamp along the bottom and side edges, (using VersaMark again) and gold embossed that as well.  I randomly stamped the rest of the images in Crumb Cake until I was happy with the effect.

Here's a close up of the little flower I added to the twine.  I love this little flower! I used the small flower die from Botanical Builder Framelits, sponged the flower with Crumb cake and added the Soft Suede center with a gold rhinestone to finish it.  I shaped the flower using a foam pad and a stylus.

I hope you like my card today...this card just makes me happy!  Thanks so much for stopping by to share your time with me!

Guess what made me smile today?

Hi guys!  I just had to share what made me smile today!

Today was such a busy day, but Gary and I took some time out to go for a walk this morning in one of my favourite spots, Rocky Point Park...just minutes from where we live.  It made my soul happy to walk in the park by the ocean with my favourite guy!

Here's what my happy looks like!

The rocky and mossy shoreline...I love this place!

Canada Geese gliding along...(not that the geese are a fave but the pretty picture of them having a lazy swim was lovely!

Look at the moss on this wonderful old tree....seriously one of my favourite things!

A peek a boo view....

And then we found these first buds of spring!

And last but not least, a beautiful pale pink January Camellia in full bloom....amazing!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a few things today to make you smile!  

Big hugs ~ Judy

Pink Bloomin' Hearts

Hi everyone!

Here's one of my new cards to share with you.   I love Pink Pirouette, it's such a soft pretty colour and it's definitely one of my favourite things. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  Sometimes the image in my head doesn't turn out when I start to play but this card did!

Here is a close up of the detail, the new Bloomin' Heart Thinlits die is so pretty and intricate.

I punched flowers to place on the cut out heart, the large ones from the Petite Petals punch and for the small ones I used the flower punch from Itty Bitty Accents.  I crumpled them and separated the cardstock, adhered them to the cut out heart and added a pearl.  Then to finish I couldn't resist adding a touch of clear Wink of Stella.

I also embossed the background panel with the Lovely Lace embossing folder and added ribbon to the side.  Then to finish I added another layered flower.  I popped the Blooming' Heart die up with dimensionals.

Here's a close up of my card, isn't it pretty...hmmm... love it!

Well that's my quick share for today...woohoo....2 posts this year!  Yay me!!  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today!
