Today’s release at A Day For Daisies is oh so sassy! This lovely lady is Perplexed and is part of the new release, Bewildered.
There’s also a new challenge up…Found Paper. Found paper can be anything, a receipt, ticket stub, phone book page, or in my case, a children’s dictionary that was in pretty bad shape. I used the dictionary paper for the flowers and butterfly. There’s also free digi available for you to play along with. Be sure to check out the ADFD blog to play along.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a great weekend!

These cards were made with the Letterpress L starter kit and were surprisingly quick to make. I used a small dab of ink and was able to make all of the cards in this post without having to add more ink. I probably could have made more, a little goes a long way. These are my first try and I was impressed with how easy it was to get a clean impression. I used the starter kit with my Big Shot and had no problems at all.
Because I only had black ink on hand, I added some card stock to brighten it up a bit. Here’s how they turned out.

A quick post today as it’s been a crazy busy past few weeks. Lots of doctor’s appointments, running around and in general, keeping up. I needed a sympathy card awhile back and used Cheery Lynn dies, PTI banner dies and stamps, and the small square is the Fleur de Lis die (Spellbinders). I cut a custom sized envie with my Cameo to fit the card as the banner makes it an odd size. Last year I bought a ream of Neenah Linen Solar White 24# writing paper to line my cards and found it works well for envelopes too. 500 sheets will last a long time! Thanks for stopping by!

This beauty is called, Green Lady, and is by A Day For Daisies. I have to be honest and say that this isn’t what I envisioned when I started this card. I debated whether I should post this card as I ended up giving it another go a few days later. Here’s what I came up with the second time.
The close up is to show the layers in better detail. I used foam squares to pop up the image. The background stamp is a sympathy set by Papertrey Ink and was embossed with white embossing powder. DP is retired and from Stampin’ Up. Both images were colored with Copics and have Copic Spica pens to accent the eyes and lips. Thanks for stopping by!

I won the Color Challenge last week over at A Day For Daisies. Woohoo!!! I was a very happy girl, this is one of the images I chose with my credit, called Spring in the Alps. I love this image (okay, so I love them all) and thought it’d be perfect as a gift set. For the Card Pouch, I used this tutorial from SCS. My cards are 4 1/4″ square and the envelopes are 4 1/2″ square. I used a square envelope from the Silhouette Store and sized it to fit my cards.
Here’s what it looks like opened:
The card pouch was pretty quick and easy to make and I love how quickly the smaller sized cards come together. Gift sets are so versatile and easy to customize, I think I may need to make a few more of these! Thanks for stopping by!

A Day For Daisies has another challenge up, Dress It Up With Gingham. I used A Special Flower for this challenge. Isn’t this image sweet? With Silhouette Studio software, I created a circle frame card and cut it with the Cameo. The rose was made with Spellbinders Rose dies by Donna Salazar and the butterflies are from Stampin Up. This was a fun challenge, thanks for stopping by!

I won a set of Card Creator dies from Stamping Scrapping! These dies will be released
at the end of this month this summer, but these are the ATC Card Creator dies and are perfectly sized for ATCs with the layers. Thanks, Cindy! They made my layering a breeze and were so fun to create with! Here’s what they look like:
For this card I used three of the ATC Card Creator dies and Cathedral Lace (Cheery Lynn Designs). The mini roses were made with a McGill flower punch and the leaf/vine is a Sizzlet die. Stamp is from Words of Wisdom (Stampin Up, retired).
This card was made using ATC Card Creator dies, Spellbinders Creative Pages Two, and a butterfly die from Cheery Lynn Designs. I kept it pretty simple and only added some seam binding that I dyed. I have a lot to catch up on and will be back later for more. Thanks for stopping by!
