Need Some Masculine Cards?

Remember to Create!
Hello Stamping Friends,

Hope you are all staying safe and keeping yourself crafting during this unusual time. As always I'm available to help answer any questions you may have so just reach out to me and I'll help in whatever way I can.

This card is for the Sisters in Stamping challenge of making a masculine card. This card uses the Come Sail Away suite to make this soft-looking masculine card. It says "thanks" but that can easily be switched out for any occasion you need a card for. I think it would be a good sympathy card because of the softness this card. 

It's also a great card to make if you don't have a ton of supplies. There's only one ink color and one cardstock color (besides white, I don't think that even counts). It's all about the layering that makes this simple-to-make card so appealing to the eye.

Don't forget about the Last-Chance Product lists that are out. Many items are discounted and some are already sold out. Remember, items on these lists are available while supplies last. Quantities are limited.

Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more masculine card ideas.

Spring has Sprung BLog Hop

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

It's Tuesday night, but that's not all. It's Tuesday, April 14th and you know what that means? A great blog hop awaits you with the Stampers Dozen. This month's hop is all about spring being sprung.  So after you scroll here, keep hopping to see all the other awesome, inspirational creations to keep you stamping and creating.

I used the adorable "Easter" set to make a precious baby to welcome a new little one into the world. Isn't that what spring is all about? New life! I love the little lamb in the Welcome Easter stamp set. Well, actually, I love all three little animals in the set: the bunny, the lamb and the duck. 

I selected blues, greens, and yellow for the card so it could be used for boys because I always seem to have more girl cards than boys. Does that ever happen to you? It honestly shouldn't be that way for me because we definitely have more boys in the family than girls. Anyway, it can easily be switched to a girl card by using pinks.

I cut the strips to make a paint strip background on the base. Then I stamped the grass twice to give it the look of having two different colors of ink. The lamb is stamped on scrap paper, colored and then cut out. I added the clear Wink of Stella pen to the body and top of the head on the lamb and it adds the perfect finishing touch. The lamb is cut out and attached using dimensionals.

The greeting and the entire piece the lamb is one is also attached to the base by dimensionals. You know me, the more dimensionals, the better.

Now, don't you leave without hopping to the blogs to see everyone's creation. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping. See you soon.

Happy Easter Stamping Friends

Remember to Create!
Hello Stamping Friends,

I hope you are all doing well and being productive with the unplanned downtime we all have been given. I haven't honestly been the best, but I have had a ton going on with family needs that I am glad to have the time to concentrate and focus on that.

Today is Good Friday and I hope you can take a few minutes to reflect on what that means for you. Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice by dying for us so we can have eternal life through him. What a gift.

Also, it's time for a project with the Sisters in Stamping. We decided to share with you some great Easter projects. I offered this class last month and absolutely love how it turned out. I hope you like it half as much as I do.

This is a home decor piece that you place in a 12"x12" frame to bring some cheer while decorating your home.  Isn't it so fun and screams spring is here? I think so anyway. The little bunnies, chicks, lambs, and butterflies represent spring new life. Of course, the rainboots and umbrellas are perfect representation of April showers bringing May flowers. 

I wish you a Blessed Easter and enjoy your weekend even if you are celebrating the day a little differently than you are used to.
