Waffle Flower Crafts Caring Hands

Today I'm sending a little TLC - Tender Loving Care because we all need a little lift once in a while.
I thought I'd try something different this time. I took the sentiments from the Waffle Flower Caring Hands Sentiments and stamped them with colored ink on colored paper and made a collage background with them
Next I stamped the Caring Hands and left them uncolored to add contrast and adhered them to the block background panel with adhesive foam tape.
The sentiments inspire confidence, prayers and strength.  Something we all need every now and then. 
You can see the dimension of the raised uncolored pieces in this photo.
I'm linking this up at Through The Craft Room Door where Anything Goes! I hope you find some time to join along!

Elegant Larkspur


I hope you're having a great weekend! Today I'm playing along at Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge. Dies are my favorite crafty item. I love how you can transform a plain piece of paper into an elegant detailed cut in a quick crank of your die cut machine.

My card starts with that fab Dashed Rhombus background die cut from white cardstock. I topped the background with the Waffle Flower Elegant Oval Frame. It comes with a background die that I cut from gold glitter paper.

The beautiful Elegant Oval Frame is topped with Copic Colored Larkspur. I didn't know that Delphinium is also called Larkspur and that it's the birthday flower for July which totally makes sense because that's when you'll find them blooming.

The delicate florals, elegant frame and gold glitter make this one a treat for any recipient.

Everything is adhered flat to the card base except for the florals that are adhered with adhesive foam tape. This adds dimension and a rich look to the card.

I hope you find some time to play! Have a great day!

Spellbinders May 2022 Card Club


Have you tried one of the Spellbinders club kits yet? I've been getting the small die of the month for a few years now and I love it.! Every month for $15 I receive a die - this month its a cute koala hanging in a tree (see photo at the bottom of the post). I never know what I'm going to get and am rarely disappointed. I've been playing with the Card Kit for a few years too. Here's a peek at the May 2022 Card Making Club Kit.


The kit includes EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING. You get a pattern paper pad, die cut images, stickers, sequins, a stamp set, a die set, solid cardstock and even card bases, envelopes, double sided tape and foam dots.

This time we're taking a trip down under - to Australia with exotic images of flowers and birds.
This time the kit includes a bunch of dot sticker sentiments as well as gold script sentiments. The gold coordinates perfectly with the gold foil you'll also see on the papers.
Sentiments are on chipboard too like the quote above.. OR you can stamp a sentiment from the stamp set.
These realistic florals and birds have me aching to see the real thing.. its like a sweet escape to a far away land!

This time the stamp set includes a large floral design and the die is this cute koala complete with the "hang in there" sentiment.
I love that even when all the papers and other supplies are gone I'll still have a stamp and die set that I can use over and over again.
Thanks for having a peek! I hope you like the cards and will give the Spellbinders Card Making Club Kit Subscription a try sometime. If you dont like a surprise you can order the kit after it's revealed on the first of every month. Have a GREAT DAY!

Paper Glitz Birthday


I love to craft and stencils are becoming so popular. I have lots to learn but am so happy with how this card turned out. And if you've got stenciling on your mind you might want to check out Try it on Tuesday where they're asking that you use a stencil.
My card stars with solid aqua cardstock background. I added different shades of Picket Fence Paper Glitz to the Lots of Blossoms Stencil. I always use Thermo Web Pixie Spray to add a light adhesive to the back of the stencil and hold it in place. I'd never stencil without it!

I adhered pearls randomly to the center of the stenciled flowers - and I wish you could see this in person.. glittery stenciling,, shiny pearls... YUM!

The HB2U die was cut out twice - once from white and once from gold glitter foil card stock. I've stacked the two cuts so that the glitter peeks from underneath.
This card is SO SPARKLY!! I love it!

Fusion Challenge - Movie Night

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! A new challenge begins today at Fusion Card Challenge! It's a great place to play and you'll love this challenge because there are three ways to play.. you can play along with the sketch, be inspired by the photo, or FUSE them together and play with BOTH!
This time we're going to the movies! Check out the the photo inspiration with the big couch and movie related images. I also see red and black if you want to spin this into a color challenge, and if you're not feeling inspired by the photo, you can still play along with the sketch. And if you're feeling clever you can fuse the sketch and the photo together!
90% of the time I'm playing along with the image - I guess that makes me a visual thinker. I inked up the Newton's Nook Movie Night stamp set with Copic markers and fussy cut them with scissors.
The background is ombre red - three shades of red cardstock strips topped with some white die cut frames.
I've scattered Popcorn from Waffle Flower around the sentiment and on the floor of course. They were easy to die cut from light yellow cardstock. Some Distress Ink in Fossilized Amber gives them a buttery look.

Now it's your turn! I can't wait to see how you interpret the inspiration photo OR the sketch. Maybe you need a little more inspiration? Check out designs from the rest of the team. Just click on their names below to jump to their blogs.


I hope I see you at Fusion Card Challenge! It's a great place to play and make new friends! I'm always inspired by the team as well as the linked up designs!
