STB - may 22 2023

So it's time for another week spread in my STB memory planner. And my lamenting about being left alone with a sick doggie. And feeling sick myself.

If you're a cardmaker visiting here, may I just mention how cool it is to use up your ancient stash when working on preserving your memories like this ;) Washi. Journal cards. Alpha stickers. Feels so good.

and still more milestone cards

Needed a 50th wedding anniversary card. Happened to know what the bride's outfit was going to look like so I modeled their card on it using a wonderful stamp set, Beautiful Blooms Builder from The Stamp Market and some Altenew inks ...

And I needed a 60th birthday card so did some gold heat embossing with Stamplorations Healing Herbs stamp on pretty patterned papers and voila!

Thanks for coming by today.

STB - may 15 2023

And after Mother's Day comes a week where an old U-Boot came to town. Well, not really. It just passed by on its way to Speyer.

a CASE in blue

 Hi there peeps! 

I was very inspired by a card Andrea M. made recently and it actually moved me to hit my craft room and CASE it.

Loved her color combo so I stuck with it. Perused my dies for something that would give that fall feel, but keep my life simple. Chose a bit bigger pattern for my BG but it sure looks a lot like hers. Love it.

Because I loved the design so much I decided to put a twist on it and go a bit masculine. Same colors. Different motif. Feathers this time. And an embossed plus clock BG to go with the happy birthday, time passing theme.

Inkystamp sentiment stamp,
embossing powder, twine
Lifestyle Crafts feather die,

That's it for today. Thanks for looking.

pretty in pink - and green

How about a couple cards with a similar color scheme although they came about in different ways.

The patterned paper inspired me for this first one.  Needed a personalized card for DS so decided to include the initial as part of a shaker.  Sequins and gold are always a good idea, right?

I was sorting through some old stamps and ran across this oldie but goodie peony from PTI. Paired it with a more modern stencil BG and some cool word dies from A Pocket Full of Happiness. And some glitter washi!

Hope you are having a peaceful day. Thanks for looking.

more milestone cards

Seems like some of the only cards I actually sit down and create lately are for lovely ladies turning 70, 80 and 90.
