Fabric/Netting Background Video...

Today, I am extremely pleased to be able to share with you a personal video I have managed to put together. Being my first video for you I hope you will be able to view it ok? Sometimes rather than writing about how you've done something, it's just easier to talk about it. So the reason for this video is to share this cards background with you today

As time progress and I become more comfortable with videos, hopefully... I can share more tutorial videos's with you?  It may take some practice?         


As you take a  closer look you will notice the netting or fabric explained in this video on my card.

Close ups in case your not able to open the video?

Hope this inspires you to get moving and stamping?
I love hearing from you....don't forget to leave me a message.

Key To My Heart

Stamping and paper crafting is defiantly the key to my heart.  Sharing this card with little information today.  Some day's are just better letting the imagination run wild with out to many details on how this was made. There is glitter on the butterfly. Unfortunately the picture does not pick it up?
The picture looks faded as it was very bright outdoors when shooting this (above) picture.

The color on this picture looks more like the true color. 
Added two cute little keys to this card. 


Handmade center flower with added glitter. 

Love my butterfly dies.  Had to add one to this card.

No long drawn out explanation today of how this card became about. 
Only pictures today for your viewing.
Have a blessed week....

Father's Day Wishes...

It's Father's Day coming up this week so I'd like to share with you what I came up with for my own father for his special day.  Men's cards are not my most favorite cards to create but I tried to make it interesting as possible for my own Dad.

Pocket watches do seem to be a mans thing so I thought my Dad may enjoy these pocket watches. At 85 years old my father doesn't seem to get to excited so I imagine it will be the usual expression of a smile and grin and thank you when opening his card.  I will explain to him that my husband found that feather lying in our driveway one morning with another larger feather that he said; " the other one looked like a turkey feather"? My father always loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing.  So that feather will certainly peak his interest.

The large pocket watch was a free download from the Grapic Fairy. The face of the pocket watches may look blurry and a tiny bit faded to you.  It is a little because... I put " Ranger-Inkessentials - Glossy Accents" over the face of both watches to give it an appearance of a glass front on the pocket watches.  I have this  post mark stamp and don't quite know what to do with it?  Not so sure... I really like it on there but I left it on anyways.

My best to each of you on Father's Day.  Hoping you enjoy each moment celebrating the occassion with your own Father on the 17th.  May you embrace and cherish those wonderful memories and sweet times with your dad during your childhood....

Butterflies In Flight...

Where in the world does the week go?  Another week gone and time for another post for you.  The older you go...the faster the week flies by.  I bet you feel the same way about father time?

I have once again used my new Mariann Die cut and hope it has a little different appearance than last weeks card?  Now...who doesn't like butterflies?  So here we have a variety of butterflies for this card rather than stamping a sentiment in the center like last week.  I love these K & Company dimensional stickers rather than using a stamp sometimes.  I think they add such elegance to a project. 

If you'll notice the dimensional butterflies already have some glitter on them.  So I added three more of my own butterflies to them and added my own Ranger Iridescent Crystal effects on them as well.  Adding loads of bling, bling!

Hope this little card gives you loads of inspiration and off to get started on something to share with us as well?  Happy creating girls and many blessings to your week.
