Sisterly Friendship

I'd like to share a card with you tonight that I made for one of my daughters for Valentine's Day. My thought was that it was to portray her and her sister and the friendship and memories they share. I cropped an adorable image from the Thank Heaven for Little Girls plate by The Stampsmith. I feel bad for cropping one of the sweet little girls out of the picture, but it wouldn't have made sense for the card if there was three girls in it. lol :) The sentiments, "Friendship, Happiness, Memories & Love are all from the Say it With Flair plate by The Stampsmith, as well.

Please check back tomorrow for the theme of our next challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge blog!

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Angel Valentine's Day Card

Hello Smithies!

Today, I have a Valentine's Day card. I used the Stampsmith stamp "Little Angel (Large). Little Angel was stamped on glossy white cs with black dye ink. I made some background paper using a faux linen technique and added lots of fibers. Isn't she sweet??!!

There is more info, more photos, and a couple RAK cards on my blog if you care to take a look. Have a great day!!

Masculine Birthday Wishes

I have a masculine birthday card to share with you today. I used the photostamp of an old truck from The Mountains plate by The Stampsmith. You can find it under 'Landscapes' in the online shop. Paired with some vintage clocks, I think this makes for a fun masculine birthday card. I hope my hubby likes it! :)

Lucy Birthday RAK Card

Hi Smithies,
Hope everyone had a great Holiday season. And, is completely recovered. Today I made a couple RAK cards for January Birthday ladies. I used a Lucy stamp from the Lucy Full Sheet. I just love the expression on her face.

I used a die to cut the card. Lucy is stamped on glossy white CS with black dye ink. I added a sentiment and a bright ribbon. Easy peasy. Fun card with a fun image! There is a bit more info on my blog.
There is still time to enter the Blog Candy Drawing on the Stampsmith Challenge Blog. Click over and check it out. Lots of goodies to win. Hope everyone has a great day!

With the festive season behind us it is time to store the Christmas stamps away. As much as I enjoyed making Christmas cards and gifts this year, I am now desperate to start work on non-festive projects.
For this card I used one of the images from Flappers #1. Brief instructions can be found at Adorn.
