Today I made a card for a friend who is sick and battling breast cancer. I used the Eastern Blooms stamp set from Stampin' Up with papertrey ink paper. The pink card stock, the white and the designer paper are from PTI; the green is certain celery from Stampin' Up. I used my nesties to create a focal point for the stamp. It is difficult to tell but I popped up the three pink flowers with dimensionals to add depth to the card. I added 4 baubles from stampingbella.com. To finish off the card I took some pink ribbon and popped it up with the dimensional too.

Today I created some monogrammed note cards and a box to store them in. Over on splitcoast stampers I have noticed that these boxes are popular and so cute....soooo I decided to give it a try and make one myself. The boxes that I have seen hold 3x3 cards but I have been making 4x4 cards- I am shocked that I was actually ale to do this. It was super easy with my scor-pal (my favorite card making tool). The box I designed will actually hold 4x5 cards ( I made it a little taller for extra room like tissue paper). I plan on making these at Christmas time for little gifts. The decorative box will hold 4 personalized cards. Next time though I will make it with coordinating papers!

Here is one of the Christmas cards that I have been working on that I mentioned in the post the other day. I used my Stampin' Up Lovely as a Tree set and heat embossed it on to artichoke colored paper from SU. I stamped the "Merry Christmas" sentiment on to PTI white card stock and paired the bravo burgundy color paper from Stampin' Up behind it. I used the ticket corner punch to add some detail by the sentiment. I finished the card off with the ribbon from PTI that matches the ink in the sentiment. I hope you like it!

I did not post a card yesterday because I did not like the way my card turned out. I have been trying to design a Christmas card to send out this year but I am still playing around with the stamps. Today I decided to create a fun and bright card using my Stampin Up paper, "Green Galore" and "Tempting Turquoise" with pink paper from the SU prints pack. I used one of my new stamps that came the other day. I love the Fun and Fast notes set from Stampin Up because I am able to play with my favorite copic markers! :) I also used my oval nestabilities. I hope you like the card and thanks for looking!

I just love the way this card turned out plus it was really easy to put together. I have been staring at the vellum paper for months deciding what to do with it. I stamped the vellum with the background stamp Pretty Petals from Stampin Up with my versa mark pad; then I heat embossed it with the silver embossing powder. I paired the card with PTI red and white cardstock and added the matching ribbon from PTI. To finish the card off I included some silver brads in the corners. What do you all think?

Here is a new post for today. I have a co-worker who isn't feeling too well and I thought that Bootabella might cheer her up. For the card I chose Stampin Up old olive and summer fun paper along with old olive designer paper. I colored Bella with my copic markers again. I have been trying to learn the blending techniques with the copics but I am not quite there yet. All the sites keep telling me to Practice, Practice, Practice!!

Hi out there! I made this birthday card for my goddaughter Sawyer. It was her 9th birthday the other day. I chose real girly colors for her. I LOVE the Bella Stamps; so I inked up Billboardabella in adirondack espresso and stamped her onto PTI white cardstock. THen I colored her with my new Ciao Copics markers. Next I picked the paper colors that I wanted to use: I went with Stampin Up perfect plum, pale plum and the Designer Paper prints pack from SU. I like the double sided dp paper and I wanted to make sure that both sides of the paper showed in the card. I used the scor-pal to crease the paper over with a crisp look. I used the merci stamp set to stamp the image in the background with my versa mark pad. I also stamped the flower from the friendship blooms set and added a bauble.
Sawyer did not believe that I made the card ( I guess that's a compliment from a 9 year old), it took some convincing. I offered to have a card making demonstration and project session with her Brownie Troop- she was excited about that! The teacher in me would love to share the joy of stamping with them.

Hello everyone.... if anyone is actually out there reading this! LOL I just became a SU Demonstrator yesterday. I plan on mostly being a hobby demo but I do want to share my love of stamping and card making with others. From time to time I will post cards and projects that I have created- hopefully others want to look at my Divine Designs and become inspired. =)
I hope everyone out there enjoys seeing my little creations! Thanks for viewing.
