Butterfly Basics Thanks Cards

I have so many projects that haven’t been shared, I just haven’t had the time at the computer to sit and write my posts.  It’s scary to see how much time has passed since my last post…and hope that it won’t be quite so long between this one and my next post!

Anyways, today I am sharing some cute little thank you cards I made a while ago…

Butterfly Basics 001

Super quick and easy, I was having a play with what was then our new In Colours, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe.  They have been around for quite a while now!

Sprinkles Of Life Cupcake Notecard

The Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set this year is the Sprinkles Of Life stamp set.  This set is super cute, and works for so many different themes, you will want to add it to your craft stash too!

Sprinkles of Life 002

The Tree Builder Punch let’s us punch the cupcake top and the cherry, so this card went together pretty quickly!

No photos of the inside…being smaller than a regular card I added the layers but left it blank so there’s plenty of room to write a birthday message.

Thanks for stopping by.

Whitewashed Corner Garden

It’s been ages since my last post, so I thought I’d better dust off the cobwebs and share something pretty with you 🙂

Today’s card is a case of Heather’s card over at Playing With Papercrafting.  It’s one of those cards that makes you need to buy the stamp set, just so you can make it!  Gorgeous!

Corner Garden 001 - Front

The whitewash seemed to take forever to do, but once I started to colour in the flowers I quickly fell in love!

Corner Garden 001 - Inside

I went super simple for the inside.  I stamped the top of the Corner Garden image in the bottom corner of my card in Versamark….it would have been gorgeous if it had been coloured in too, but I was getting too impatient to finish my card!

I made this card with my class ladies a few weeks ago and they loved it.  It was great to teach them the whitewash technique, and see all the variations of the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Janine’s Card In A Box

Janine’s husband, Graeme, asked all of her stamping friends to make a card to present to her during the funeral.  I knew that I would make Janine a card in a box card, because she wanted to try one, but didn’t get the chance.

Janine Card In A Box - Front

I chose Blackberry Bliss because purple is Janine’s favourite colour.  The stars come from a long retired set that I don’t think I will ever part with, called Simply Stars.  I choose stars because I like to think that Janine is now a star shining down on us.  I’ve also added lots of Silver Glimmer Paper, because Janine is just like the rest of us and loved her bling!

Janine Card In A Box - Side

I know Janine would have loved this card!  I think it took me just as long to write my message to her on the back as it did to make the card.  I didn’t want to make it a sad card, so I made it a thank you card instead.  I thanked Janine for our special friendship, and all the little moments we got to share.  I also added this small piece I found online:

Goodbye’s are not forever.

Goodbye’s are not the end.

They simply mean I’ll miss you,

Until we meet again.

Sleep peacefully my beautiful friend, until we meet again.

Father’s Day Card In A Box

We made a Father’s Day card in a box at last week’s class, along with the wedding anniversary one I shared in my last post.

Dad Card In A Box - Front 1

My ladies came up with some great variations on this card too…and I know there’s one card that is waiting for a special little grandchild to be born!

Dad Card In A Box - Front 2

I saw the Onesie from the Something For Baby stamp set made into a shirt for Father’s Day last year…I love that Pinterest reminds us of all these great ideas when we are ready to use them!

Dad Card In A Box - Side

I now have one Father’s Day card in my stash for this year…only 2 more to go!

Thanks for stopping by.

Wedding Anniversary Card In A Box

One of my lovely class ladies asked if we could make a card for a 25th wedding anniversary card at Friday night’s class.  I watched Tanya Bell’s video tutorial, and this is the card we made.

Congrats Card In A Box - Front 1

I love how this turned out!  Inspiration came from the million photos of Card In A Box cards that Stamp With Rachel has posted over on her Facebook page.

Congrats Card In A Box - Front 2

My ladies loved making this card, and came up with some great variations!  It was crazy busy with 9 people, but we all had a great time 🙂

Congrats Card In A Box - Side

This would make a great engagement card too!

Adventure Bound

The Adventure Bound DSP has now retired, but I still wanted to share the card I made.

Adventure Bound 001 - Front

This DSP makes for a super easy but eye catching card!

Adventure Bound 001 - Inside

A little DSP on the inside along with the sentiment always looks great!

Moon Lake

Today’s card is another masculine one…my stash of men’s cards is slowly starting to grow!

Moon Lake 001 - Front

It’s been such a long time since I did any watercolouring.  I love it…I could happily sit and colour in all day!

Moon Lake 001 - Inside

Super simple on the inside.

I will be making this card with my class ladies tomorrow night…hope they enjoy the colouring in as much as I did!

Thanks for stopping by.

I really do love this colour combination!

Stippled Blossoms 004 - Inside

Stippled Blossoms 003 - Front

Stippled Blossoms 003 - Front Top

Stippled Blossoms 003 - Inside
