Hi Blog Friends!

With Father's Day quickly approaching, I 'm posting a masculine card today.  Stamps are from Stampin Up.  I used the black, turquoise and kraft colored card base for this card. 

Two brads hold the double banner strip with sentiment.  And in the middle of the compass, there's a gemstone....kinda hard to see.  

Fast and easy card for the guy in your life. 

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Happy stamping!
Hugs, Geri 


Hi Friends!

Happy Thursday.  Today's card was so much fun to make.  I love the Tim Holtz coffee cup, and had been wanting to use it for a while.  Finally got around to making a card with it.

I used the tiny coffee cup embossing folder for the background on kraft colored card stock.  The turquoise strip at the bottom is stamped with an old (retired) Stampin Up stamp out of my stash.  The sentiment is out of the same set.  I used my crimper for the band around the cup.  I have to tell you, when my grandson was a little guy, he'd come over and say "let's stamp grandma" and run and pick out the crimper.  I can't tell you how many strips of paper Desmond crimped!  lol  He loved that tool.  

Added a few turquoise sequins for some bling, and turquoise card stock for layering.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back later with something new.

Hi Friends,

Today's card is a birthday card with some big candles.  My stamping friend, Lyn, cut out the candles, and I forgot to ask what she used, but am guessing she might have cut them on her Cricut.  Anyway, they're fun candles.  I added the happy birthday sentiment, and the sequins to finish off the card.  You can't see it clearly in the pic, but the sequins do match the teal color in the candles.  Sequins and gemstones are really hard to photograph for some reason.  Hard to capture the shimmer.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll be back next week with something new.  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Geri  

A Field of Flowers

Hi Freinds,

Well, life never stops with it's unexpected turn of events, does it?  I won't bore you, but can tell you we've had so many things happening, it's been almost unbelievable.  Thank you all for hanging in there.  I really appreciate you following my blog and not giving up on me.  :o)

Getting to my card now, the stamp set is from Stampin Up, and it's called Flowering Fields.  Stamped flowers with Memento ink on kraft colored card stock, then colored it with markers.  I used Distress Vintage Photo ink on the edges and glued it to a red background paper.   I have a box of various pieces of lace, and thought this piece would look nice on a card.  You know how you keep lace and never use it?  Time to dig it out and use it.    

Quick and easy card.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll be back soon with something new. 
   Hugs, Geri
