Squirmy Squgilly Little Guy

Hello Bloggers!

Today's card is a cute little squirmy squiggly Octopus stamp I'd been wanting to use.  I have a sweet friend who loves Octopus images.  

Colored with Copic markers.  I used a swirly embossing folder for the background.  I think the swirly design is an embossing folder by Stampin Up.  

I added some crystal iridescent sequins to the card to finish it off.  You can barely see his eyes...but they are a cool shade of yellow.

                Thanks for stopping by to visit.  
                Hugs, Geri

More Valentine's Day ......

Happy Weekend Friends!

Here's another Valentine's Day card I made....with some input from Pinterest!  :o)   

I used a Tim Holtz heart die, and Sizzix leaves die.  The little hearts are from some old punches I have.  The bird is a Magenta stamp.  The random teeny  dots are made with a stubby stick stamp by Judith.   I punched the flowers out and dotted the centers with Liquid Pearls in yellow.  I wanted to make a card in something other than the traditional red and white theme.  I was happy with the way it turned out.  I tied a black twine bow and attached it to the bouquet to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I'll be back with another Valentine card to share.

Happy Valentine's Day Friends!

Here's my Valentine card for this of my favorite holidays.  I embossed the cranberry background with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and glued it on a kraft colored card.  Punched out some glittery hearts, and used red and white twine to wrap around the embossed hearts.  I punched out a bigger pink glitter heart to tuck inside the tiny envelope.  Luckily, I found a teeny tiny punch to glue a red heart onto the envelope.  Distressed the envelope and sentiment with TH Vintage Photo ink.  Added tiny hearts to the sentiment.  The last step was to add the little clothespin to attach the envelope to the wrapped twine.  

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day! Hugs, Geri  


Hello Friends!

I have some Valentine cards to share with you.  This card was designed by Sharalynn.  I belong to a group of stampers and we make cards together.  I got to make this card with Sharalynn's design.
Thanks Sharalynn!  

It was fun to make, and I forgot to ask about the cool die she used in her kits.  I really like the swirl.

It was a quick card to put together and it made a very nice Valentine's Day card. 

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back with another card.
Hugs, Geri


Hello Blog Friends,

I'm sure you've wondered where I've been.  I haven't been blogging for quite some time.  You know how life gets in the way of fun sometimes.

Our son opened a brinery, so I made some cards for the pickle shop.  I chose pickles to stamp, even though other foods are available at the brinery.  Pickles are so much fun to stamp!  The business is going great guns and doing just awesome.  All foods he makes are fermented, so they have lots of the good probiotics that are so good for us.  :0)

Today's card is a couple of pickles I found and wanted to share.  Cute sentiment "Out of everyone in the world, I pickle you!"  Makes me smile.

Colored with Copics, and then I added some green (of course) sequins to finish images off.  I'll be posting more pickle cards later on.

Thanks for stopping by to visit!
Hugs, Geri


Hello Blog Friends!

Blogging business has been very slow on my end, but I did make a new Halloween card this year.  I used a House Mouse stamp.  Monica the Butterfly.  She's so darn cute.  Copic coloring, Spellbinder's frame die, scrapbook paper from my Halloween stash, and the orange ribbon is from JoAnn's.  The embellishments are Nuvo enamel glitter orange.  I used a little Diamond Stickles on the pumpkin.

I hope you all are well and ready for the little ghosts and goblins tomorrow night.

Be safe and have a fun Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by to visit.   Hugs, Geri


Hello Bloggers!

I hope you're all ready for the weekend.  Summer is quickly coming to an end.  Our mornings feel a bit chilly compared to the last few months.  Feels good!  

Today's card is one I made in a SU workshop with Leilani, awhile back.  The clear acetate with gold design on the left side is by SU, as are the stamps and sentiment.  After coloring the flowers and die cutting, it was a quick card to put together.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I'll be back later with another card.
Hugs, Geri
