Today is National Stamping Day!

I've used one of the stamps from the Create Kindness kit and a couple scraps to create this card. Ink, paper and stamps are all the tools you need to share some kindness with someone so take a few minutes today to create something....

There are 8 mini stamps that you can purchase a la carte if you don't want the full Create Kindness Kit so check out my blog now! Each stamp is only $2.95 but they are only available until the end of this month.

Have a happy day!
Hugs,
Patty

Swan Lake PML card


To make this card I used one of the PML cards in the Swan Lake paper pack and the Happy Heart stamp set.
Making cards can be simple or fancy! For this card I just used solid cardstock to layer paper and stamped images, trimmed a couple stamped hearts and added sparkles to the swans!
This makes a perfect anniversary card!

Hugs,
Patty

Wish me luck!

Merry Christmas! AHSC #177

Today's card was super simple! This was my card swap for last week's team meeting & it follows this week's Atlantic Heart's Sketch Challenge!
All I did was stamp images in the corners and cut the sentiment from the new CTMH  Flower Market Cricut cartridge, stamp a sentiment inside and I was done!
Be sure to visit the AHSC blog, there are some really pretty cards from the Design Team! You'll also see my card from last week that made the top 3!
Hugs,
Patty

Dare to make something different - you might be a winner!

Last week when I looked at the AHSC sketch I knew I could make a really pretty card, but it was time to make a card for my nephew's upcoming birthday. So instead of a "pretty" card I challenged myself to create something that would appeal to a 20 year old guy - and my card was chosen as one of the top 3 cards!
So take time to create & challenge yourself!
Hugs to all,
Patty

AHSC # 176 Today


This card will be for my nephew's birthday. While I love making pretty cards I also love the challenge of making cards for they guys in my life too. Using stamps to add layers and depth to a project is an art I'm going to practice more.
My card was inspired by this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, here's the sketch...
Happy crafting!
Hugs to all,
Patty

AHSC #175 Blessed

Here's my card made for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week. I used the Sept SOM and the Oh Deer papers. The sketch calls for an embellishment in the lower corner but I decided to use one of the stamps here instead.

CTMH September Stamp of the Month...Blessed Beyond Measure

Fall crafting is some of my favorite to do! I love the browns & greens & oranges of the season & it's probably my most favorite season of the year. The CTMH Sept Stamp of the Month has a beautiful font with heartwarming sentiments and lots of fall foliage images.

The circle cut on this card was done on the Cricut. The leaves were also cut on the Cricut then stamped, sponged and finally I used the shimmer brush to add the warm glow you see.

This stamp set is only available during the month of Sept so get yours now!
