Hello! Sorry I have MIA again. I have been spending a little time each day in the Craft Closet and taking my time making cards. Sometimes I get some of it done and then come back the next day to finish it off. I do have quite a few made so I will make sure that I post a little more often. I find that if I don’t keep myself to a schedule the Mojo flows a little better! On another note I seriously cannot believe that it’s September! That was one really quick summer. I’m not looking forward to the cooler weather and having to give up my flip-flops! LOL!
The card that I created for today uses the Pinkfresh Miss Your Smile Stamp Set and coordinating Stencils. I stamped it in Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink using my Misti. The inks that I used with the coordinating Pinkfresh Miss Your Smile Stencil are Hero Arts Orchid, Passion Flower, Soft Lilac, Grape Juice, Mint Julep and Antigua. I trimmed the panel to 8 1/4 to 3 1/4 and adhered it to a piece of Hunter Green card stock. To create the butterfly I used the Pinkfresh Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and some Crafter’s Companion Aurora Foil on a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb and a piece of Heat Resistant Acetate. On the card stock one I used the coordinating Pinkfresh Butterflies Stencils and Hero Arts Passion Flower, Grape Juice, Mint Julep and Antigua Ink to color in the butterfly. A little Black Copic Multiliner colors in the body. The coordinating Pinkfresh Butterflies Dies are used to cut them both out and they are adhered to each other on the butterfly body with Bearly Arts Glue. I added the panel to a card base of Neenah 110lb and then added the butterfly with 3M Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Pinkfresh Perfect Sentiments Hot Foil Plate and is also foiled in Aurora and cut out with the coordinating Pinkfresh Perfect Sentiments Die. I cut it out two more times from 110lb card stock and adhered them to each other and to the back of the greeting with Bearly Arts Glue. It’s then added to the card. For some more sparkle I added a few sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Shimmer Mix.
I love the purples and greens together and that Aurora Foil is definitely my favorite! I hope that you like my card for today and as always, thank you so much for taking some time out of your day to spend with me! Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

Hi there peeps and a happy Monday to you all! I had a nice weekend and did something that I haven’t done in a very long time. On Saturday I took a ride into the city and picked up my friend Kim. We went downtown so I could go and see The Ink Pad’s new location. They have been there for well over a year but because of everything that has been going on I haven’t really been in the city. The new shop is nice and packed with fun stuff! Unfortunately Anna wasn’t there but I did get to see Patrice. I of course picked up a few things! LOL! Yesterday my friend George helped me do some things to my car and then Heather made a delicious dinner. A nice weekend indeed!
My card for today uses the Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Hot Foil Plate again! I think I’m a little addicted to hot foiling!I used my Gemini Jr. and the Gemini Foilpress along with the Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and some Silver Glimmer Foil to create the butterflies.
Next up I used the coordinating Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Stencil and Concord & 9th Midnight, Peacock, Oceanside and Aqua Sky Ink to add color.
I then cut them out with the coordinating Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Dies. For the background I cut a piece of Dark Blue Card Stock with the Pinkfresh Slim Diagonal Stitched Plaid Die. It’s trimmed to 8 1/4 by 3 1/4 and adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb. For the leaves I used the Pinkfresh Curvy Leaves Die and cut them from Silver Foil Card Stock. They are added to the card base with Bearly Arts Glue. The butterflies are adhered with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Pinkfresh Butterflies Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb. It’s also adhered to the card with Foam Tape. For a little more sparkle I added a few Crystal Confetti. I don’t use much silver or blue and I actually really love them together! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! I appreciate your visit and wish you a pleasant day!

Happy Saturday peeps! I’m back with another card using some newish products from Concord & 9th. I have to say that I’m really liking the new slimline and mini slimline card sizes! It’s nice to make something other than an A2 card!
I used the Concord & 9th Painted Peonies Stamp Set and my Misti to stamp the flowers and leaves in Concord & 9th Ballet Slipper, Grapefruit, Honeysuckle, Poppy, Cranberry, Buttercup, Stardust, Sprout, Parsley, Clover and Evergreen Ink. The coordinating Concord & 9th Painted Peonies Dies are used to cut them out. I added them to a card base that is 8 1/2 by 7, scored at 3 1/2 and folded. For the greeting I choose the miss you from the Concord & 9th Big on You Stamp Set. It’s stamped in Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and cut out with the coordinating Concord & 9th Big on You Dies. I stamped the companion greeting in the same ink and trimmed it out with my Paper Trimmer. The greetings are added to the card with Foam Tape.
I decided to make a coordinating envelope so I got out my Pinkfresh Essentials Slimline Envelope Dies and some Recollections 65lb Black Paper. I really am loving making Slimline cards! It’s so nice to have a different shape to be creative with! Thanks for taking a little time out of your day to visit with me! Have a wonderful weekend!
