Hello Crafty Friends, Today I am posting a card I made for one of my sweet rug hooking friends who is a tea drinker.  The background technique I cased from Lauri Coons - Stampin Friends when I saw her post on Facebook I just had to try it.  This is my second card I have done using this back ground and of course by changing colors and embossing folders they will look very different. Here is how the card was made starting with a 5-1/2" X 4-1/4" tent fold card base.  Using 1-3/4" punch (can also die cut Elizabeth Craft Designs has fitted circles smallest is 1-1/2" and next size is 2" which is what I would recommend and put clear double sided adhesive on back of cardstock before cutting as it will be easier to arrange pieces ) cut 2 circles from 6 different colors of cardstock.  Cut each circle into fourths and then emboss with embossing folder or folders of your choice. (be sure to cut before embossing).  Add adhesive to back of pieces using a Xyon sticker make

Hydrangea 90th Birthday

Hello my Crafty Friends thank you for stopping by my blog today. I don't know about you but I am sure glad that spring is in sight and hopefully much of the illnesses going around will run off with "Ole Man Winter".  So much sickness that keeps going around and around.  I had my bout with it a couple of weeks ago but am finally getting back to my old self.  That said several of my posts have been done when I was not feeling well and so I feel my work was not up to par,  for that I apologize. My post today is a card that I made for my dear friend's mother as she celebrates her 90th Birthday. Here is how I created the 5' X 7" Tent Fold card. Cut blue cardstock (Soft Finish Cardstock - Dusky Sky used here) 5" X 7" adhere to front of card base using clear double sided adhesive. Cut white cardstock 4-1/4" X 4-3/4" dry emboss using brick pattern embossing folder.  Not sure which embossing folder was used for my piece as my piece came out of

Baby Rose Card

Hello to all my crafty friends out there!  I keep hoping for that spring weather to come and stay for a while but seems we get a couple of days of spring and then back into winter with cold temps and snow but then I have to stop and think we have nothing to complain about when you look at what so many in the southern states are going through I need to feel very very lucky!  My heart goes out to them for sure. Today I am posting a card that was made for my new great great niece.  Susan's Garden Notes Rose 2 was used along with Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched and Fitted Fishtail dies, Moda Scrap Dandelion Fluff dies and  Suzanne Cannon Baby Love die set. Although this card is my design the background of the card is not mine I cased it from Lauri Coons - Stampin Friends and I have told her that I had cased it.  She had posted a card on Facebook and I was intrigued so had to try it.  I chose colors to go with my card theme but the sky is the limit. Here is how the card was crea
