Flock For Grandma

Here I am as promised with another card using the April Stamp of the month Flock Together.  Didn’t I tell you this stamp set was perfect for a baby card?

I really like the Whimsy Fundamentals line especially the page of brush stroked love 🙂  I then layered a little Gold Glitter Paper and Pixie cardstock to hold my image.  The birds were stamped in Whisper and Pixie to represent grandma & baby.

I’ll be back next week for some more ideas for this stamp set, but in the meantime you better get yours ordered before it’s not available.

Thanks for stopping by!


Together is the Best Place to Be

This month’s stamp of the month seems to touch my heart with memories of my grandparents feeding the quail on their small farm in Eastern Washington.  It also reminds me of their togetherness – they were married for 65 years.

I was inspired by the card in the Annual Expressions and decided to give welding images a bit of a spin with my new Cricut Explore Air.

The Hello Lovely papers paired with Desert Sand, Fern and Sea Glass for an elegant look.  The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark and then embossed with Gold Embossing powder.  I used a sentiment from the Cricut Flower Market collection to recognize an upcoming anniversary.

Don’t forget that the stamp of the month Flock Together is only available through the end of April so get your’s before they are gone.

April Specials with Close to My Heart

Hopefully, April isn’t going to bring quite as many showers…we’ve been pretty wet here in the Pacific Northwest.  On one hand it gives me plenty of time to be crafty on another hand it makes it a little difficult to enjoy any of the spring bulbs that are popping up and bringing a little bit of happiness to the dark days.

This is the last month for the Seasonal Expressions one so make sure that you get your wish list completed because May will bring an entire new line of products.
