Hi everyone!

I made this card with a poinsettia die from a company I think is called Poppy.  I inked the edges with red ink to make the individual petals stand out a little.  The stamp is from PTI.  I added a little lace and adhesive pearls.  Ovals are cut with Spellbinders.

This one is the same with just a little switch up on the colors.  Used twine instead of pearls.

Have a great evening.  from Martha

Heaven and Nature Sing

Good evening everyone!

Today's card is a  little Christmas card I made with new bird and sentiment stamps.  I can't remember the brand name and I left the stamps at my friend's house....  The background paper is from Basic Grey.  I colored the image with Copic markers and blended the blue background with Distress inks from Tim Holtz.  I like the look achieved when I cut the words apart and mount each word on its own seperate panel.  There is a little stickles on the branch.

Sweet Life

Good evening to everyone!

Today I have another card made with my Paper Made Bakery kit.  Colored the image with Copic markers and just kind of slapped this one together. 

On this one I added a little heart lace and brads in the middle of the flowers.

Have a great evening.  from Martha

Bee your best......

Hello to all!

I made today's cards with a monthly kit called Paper Made Bakery.  The papers and stamps all came in the kit.  I used Spellbinders dies to cut the scalloped circle.  Colored the image with Copics.

For this one I stamped the background paper and stuck together some scraps.

Have a great evening.

Good Morning!

I had fun coloring these mouse images from My Favorite Things.  I used a muted color palette and added green accents.  I like the sewing machine stitching around the edge of the panels.  Kind of  hard to see on the photo.....

Have a great Sunday.  from Martha

Pretty Little Mouse

Good evening everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while.  Busy.

I love this little mouse stamp from My Favorite Things.  I colored it with Copic markers.  The fancy oval frame is a new Spellbinders die (new to me that is, I don't think it is from the newest release).  The papers were from a monthly kit I receive called Paper Made Bakery.  Thats the name of the kit club, not the brand of the paper.  They send a 6 x 6 coordinating paper pad with each monthly kit.

Anyway,  have a good one.  from Martha

Special Boo

Happy World Cardmaking Day to everyone!

Todays card is made with supplies from My Favorite Things.  I love the triple frame die.  The heart lace is from Grace's stash.

Since it is World Cardmaking Day, I thought I better post this bookmark.  Flower stamps are from Papertrey Ink.  Another fun use for the MFT triple frame die.

Best Witches

Good afternoon to all!

I colored up some of these cute witch images from My Favorite Things while waiting for my son to finish football practice.  Its kind of fun to have the images precolored so I can just sit and assemble the cards.  You will be seeing more of her in the next few days.

Large spider web is a die from Papertrey Ink.  The web border is a punch from Martha Stewart.  Background paper is from Echo Park.

Have a great afternoon.  from Martha

Autumn Thank You

Good Evening everyone!

Finally I am back with a card.  Made this with stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink.  I found that blue wide ribbon in my stash.  The heart shaped wooden button came with my kit from Taylored Expressions, as did the patterned paper.

Hope you have a great evening.  from Martha


Hello everyone!

We enjoyed a couple inches of snow this morning.....

But I'm not ready to move to Christmas cards yet.  I made this one with a Papertrey Ink die, paper scraps, ribbon and a mini stapler.  Those wooden painted buttons were in my Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit this month. 

Have a great evening.  Off to freezing cold football game this evening.  Go Bruins.  from Martha

Halloween Pumpkins

Hello to all!

Today I have a sunny fall card.  I had fun working with my new pumpkin set from My Favorite Things.  The sun was a sticker.  (or one half of a sticker!)  Used fall colors and added a little pale turquoise for some pizzazz. 

Have a great day.  from Martha
