Queen Bee & Brushed Notecards...

I finished up a custom order last week for a little girl who needed to send thank-yous to her friends and family for her birthday gifts.

FIRST AWESOME is that...a girl at the age of 7 is already getting used to sending Thank You cards!

SECONDLY...look how CUTE these cards are. I kept them rather simple because I knew she would be mailing most of them and I didn't want her to have to pay all the extra postage (plus we all know how even with the extra postage, highly embellished cards get banged up in the process.

I used my Cricut to cut her name out of a piece of White Daisy cardstock measuring 4 x 5.25 and then used the Queen Bee Stamp Set to stamp the CUTE little heart doodled line over her name to break up the white space. The flower is from the Brushed bundle...

I even stamped the envelope...there's nothing like a decorated envelope to set the mood....AND by using our White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack, I always have an envelope handy!

Thanks for looking...I hope you are inspired to send Thank-Yous and teach your children and grandchildren to as well (I know I am!).

Bring Back my Pack - Brushed...

HAPPY WEEKEND!!! When I was working from home, I was counting the days for normalcy and now I'm back to counting the days until the weekend...who understands?!?!

Well, the weekend DOES mean that I get to be CRAFTY and I usually get to share all my projects with my friends!

Here is a card I made using BOTH of the stamp sets that come with the Brushed Bundle. I used our Shaker Window and Confetti Thin Cuts for the big circle (that's the largest circle Thin Cut we have) and then I used the rock and roll technique that CTMH shared in their FB Live last night. If you want to see that technique, check out the YouTube video at the end of this post (WARNING - it is NOT like my other's a FB LIVE that I did in my VIP Group and it has barking dogs and

I added a CUTE LITTLE butterfly using the same rock and roll technique and I added some shimmer with our Clear Shimmer Brush...
I also added some Bitty Sparkles to add some MORE sparkle...

Garden Tags SOTM Blog Hop...

Welcome to the GLORIOUS month of June!!! I know it may seem, to some of you, that June won't be any different but I beg to differ. NO MORE homework and hopefully more days in the SUN, even if it is in our own backyards.

I am celebrating a brand new month with 21 other CTMH Consultants to bring you artwork featuring this month's SOTM, Garden Tags.

If you've come from Becca's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME! If you get lost along the way, you can always head on over to Melinda's Blog and see a complete list!

I made a card using a masking technique to get a repetitive image across the bottom of my card. I then used Watercolor Pencils and my Clear Shimmer Brush to color them in and then used a Peach Shimmer Brush to add some paint splatters...

I finished it off by using the Tags and Tabs Thin Cuts and adding 3D Foam Tape to pop it off the card. The twine I used is retired and from my stash (it's a BIG stash...hehehehe)...

Remember...SOTMs are only available during the month and you can purchase it for as little as $5 with a qualifying order! Head on over to my website to SHOP and DON'T FORGET to add the SOTM to your cart before checking out!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll continue the hop by heading on over to Krista's Blog and see what she has to share! Don't forget to visit ALL the blogs and leave love along the way!
