Forever is Love

Well it has been a couple of weeks, I had my Carpel Tunnel surgery on May 12th.  I just got the cast off on May 23rd and I have to say my hand is still pretty weak.  Now it has been a long 2 week because if you remember we had HSN's 24 hour craft event on May 8th and I received all my goodies while in the cast, so I to put it aside until cast came off ( was driving me CraZy ).  Below is just some of the items that I ordered from HSN.
 Well I have finished my 1st card since the surgery and if I do say so myself it was worth the wait, and I have come to know that you are only as good as the products that you work with.  From the HSN crafting event one of the items I purchased was the  Crafter's Companion 3D Embossing Folders Set with Stamps, Cards and Rock-a-Blocks 542-657  Bundle for a great price.  This is what I used for my card.  

Crafters Companion Luxury Card Stock

Gemini Die Cutting and Embossing Machine  I have to say if  you do not have this machine it is the best.  HSN always sells out so the next time they have a crafting event make sure you pick this up.

Crafters Companion 3D Embossing Folder Bundle  I used the Regency Swirls 3D embossing folder this has so much depth to it.  Amazing

                    Staples-15141-Trimmer Sheet-Capacity       It is a little had to see in this picture because of the shine on the Card stock but I put a curvy edge on this, looks great.

 Staples-15141-Trimmer Sheet-Capacity  I did the inside of the card with white card stock for writing messages. 

 Staples-15141-Trimmer Sheet-Capacity  I used Dark blue for the Card stock.

Crafter Companion 3D embossing Folder Bundle This Stamp came in the bundle with the embossing folders.  

Crafter Companion 3D embossing Folder Bundle This is the complete Stamps sets you will receive. ( Great Deal )

I had a little Love Dove in my stash that I used, not sure when I got this.  I did color with a clear Crafter Compaions Sparker Markers

I used a love red ribbon that i picked up on clearance at a craft store.

 Any Questions please let me know and as always Happy Crafting!

Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes

Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

I love when you start a card thinking it will be one thing and it turns into something completely different, so needless to say the pictures that I did take as I went along don't match.  I got so into what I was doing I stopped taking pictures lol.....  When I started I wanted to do a lady bug card, not sure how it turned into a turtle but it did and I Love it.  The back ground I sponge with Tim Holtz Distress ink Broken China.  I then used a circle scalloped to do the shaker part of the card.  I stamped and colored the turtle with Spectrum Noir Makers.  The stamp is a turtle carrying a present but I changed it to a pot of planted hearts with twine around it.  I then used vellum for the sentiment.

This card is entered in the       Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving ( A&M Memories ) November 11, 2017

Hi everyone and welcome back, I am Lisa, I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Turkey Day?  I have made this wonderful Happy Thanksgiving Card for your enjoyment.

With this card I used my Cricut Explore Air 2.  It is very easy to upload your digital stamps into the Cricut This is the layout that I created for this card.  I will give you a little hint, it is easier to color your  digital image before you cut it with the Cricut.  I colored the Pilgrim with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers I also used some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers for her hair, eyes, and the Turkey as you can see below. I have choosen this dark yellow card stock for the background to the leaf card stock. I used Foam Tape to hold all the layers together.  I had some fall ribbon and cord that I added to the leaf layer and wrapped it around the back so you could not see the ends.  With the cord I put a little  Open knot for decoration.

"Hebrews" Coffee Card ( Skipping Stones Design ) Oct 16th Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to Skipping Stones Design's October blog hop.  For my card I have decided to use the Coffee stamp #2.  I colored the coffee cup with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers.  This is a Digi stamp so after printing I did wait 24hr before coloring with the Alcohol markers to make sure the ink is completely dry, so I do not have any mixing of the printer ink with the alcohol marker colors.  I had a great time creating this card.  Please scroll down for pictures, supplies (  link's ),  a how toooooo, and a tutorial at the end.  Make sure you visit the links below to see other cards made by Skipping Stones Design Team.  Please make sure to leave a comments on everyones creations, let them know how much you like the designs they have created.
