"By the Tide"

Looking for a great masculine card?  
Check out this card I made for my husband using the 
"By the Tide" Stamp set!!

 Here is the catalog information pictured below:

By the Tide Clear-Mount Stamp Set

Wood Mount Set (129117) - $27.95
Clear Mount Set (129120) - $19.95

I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for ideas for masculine cards.  It's because they are the most difficult for me.  At this stage in my life, I definitely don't need baby cards, or wedding cards or shower cards.  However, I do need masculine cards, cards for graduation or just all around seasonal cards. We don't realize how difficult these types of cards can be until we need one for a special occasion. I like to make cards that are unconventional.  
I want them to be original with a twist on the colors or the fold.  
I love to get feedback that says, "Wow"  that's a great idea!!  This card I used a few of my favorite colors of Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse and Crumb cake.
Who would have thought to use Midnight Muse?  
See how it makes the shell pop with the deep blue like the sea?

I hope you enjoyed today's post!!  
Stay tuned for some more creative fun coming your way!!!
As always, your comments are always appreciated!! 
 I have listed below all the supplies I used.  

Have a wonderful week!!!

Valentine's Day Card for Stampin Pretty

This week I am featured as a guest on Mary's Fish's blog Stampin' Pretty!!  I was so excited when I got the word!!!  Then my thought was....Oh gosh, 
"What am I going to make?!"  I knew I wanted to do a Valentine themed card.  There are just so many cool things to choose from in the Spring and Annual Catalogs that would make such beautiful cards!!  Well.....I went for it all!!  
Here's my creation below!!

....and a picture of the inside.

I started off again wanting to do a twist on typical Valentine colors.  So out came the Crumb Cake!!  LOL!!!  This time I paired it with Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals.  Then I jumped over to the Spring Catalog and pulled out my favorite bundle of all, "Hearts a Flutter Bundle".  Last, every card MUST have a little bling so out came the Basic Pearls and the Antique Brads!!! So much fun!!!

As always, I love to see your comments!!  There's a complete list of the supplies I used below.  Please feel free to email me any questions.  

Have a wonderful week and a "Happy Valentine's Day!!!!"

Oh, Hello!!!

Simple Elegance!!!  
I just love this Oh, Hello Bundle featured in our Spring Catalog!!!
The bundle is so versatile!!  I did this card for a friend for her order she placed.  I used some left over scraps from the Festival of Prints and my favorite Cherry Cobbler paper.  I'm really trying to be good by reaching for my scraps rather than a new sheet of card stock!!  Those little scraps can start to take over!!!  LOL!!!  In addition, the bundle also features
"You're Invited" and "Oh, Hello" stamps.  
Here is the set as featured in the catalog.


 You save 15% when you order either of the bundles below:
Wood-Mount Bundle (131102) $44.95
Clear Mount Bundle (131101) $38.95
