Dragonfly Thank You's

Hello Friends!

I am always short of thank you cards, and never supplies.

Today is the day to get a large amount of Thank You cards done.


I used my MISTI for the Thank You part because I when I lay the cardstocks down, I don't have to think where it is positioned. It is always in the right place. I stamped the Thank You in archival ink.

I cut and placed (2" x 5-1/4") from the Beyond the Garden DP on the base card.


I die cut the dragonflies out in Basic Black and Whisper White cardstocks. The Whisper White dragonfly then was sponged in Garden Green and Tempting Turquoise, blending the two colors together.


I layered the basic black dragonfly and the blended dragonfly die cuts and attach them together at the body. I applied clear wink of stella on it. Then I adhere it to the base card.

I added sequins to the base card and that is it!

New Year Chicks

Hello Friends! 

Chinese New Year is next week and we will be celebrating the Lunar this Saturday!

I always create a new card for my parents, and this year I used they Hey, Chick from the Sale-a-Bration. Did you know that if you place an order of $60, you can get yourself this set FREE? Let me know, and I will be happy to help you.

Red and gold are my favourite colors. Not only that it is rich in color but it means lucky too.



The Whisper White cs is cut at 3 3/4" x 5" and I embossed the Whisper White panel with the Hexagon embossing folder. But before I send the Whisper White through the Big Shot, I inked embossing folder with Night of Navy ink (the impression part, lay my Whisper White, and crank it through the big shot). That is how I got the chicken wire look.

I added a 3 7/8" x 5 1/4" of Foil Gold as my mat and then secured to the base card which measures 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2".


The wording in the main panel is designed and cut with my e-cutter. The word means "Rooster" in Chinese, and I added a 2017 below the word Rooster and added Gold Foil behind the cut word. Having an e-cutter, you can do so much more! If you don't have one, it is a must, especially when you are looking to find custom cards.

Chinese writing are so hard to come by that I started creating my own using my e-cutter.


I stamped the funky rooster in archival black on whisper white, fussy cut him and applied colors to his head in Red & Gold and his tail and real red.


The inside is created using my Fun Fold insert (yes, this is in the e-cutter form), and brought in the chicken wires through out.

Inside the panels, and I added the word "Happy Chinese New Year" in Gold Foil, and stamped a hen and fussy cut it out.


When I created this I was trying to figure how to add a pocket to hold money in it. So I decided to cut a 2 1/2" x 2" and apply two pockets to the middle pieces. Here I stuck 2x $50 for each of my parent.

CCDT January Blog Hop: Love is in the Air!

Hello Friends! 

Sweet Jesus, where has the time gone! I cannot believe that 2016 is over! I hope you had a fantastic 2016 and Happy New Year everyone!


2017 starts off with another fantastic 3D hop from the CCDT Team. This month's theme is "Love is in the Air!"

NOTE: This post is long, and read all the way through.

When the 2017 Occasions catalogue came out, I immediately knew that I was going to make a 3D Hot Air Balloon.

This was my initial prototype using the new Carried Away DSP (143608) from the 2017 Occasions. It is a free standing Hot Air Balloon. The basket is strong enough to hold all the balloon.

As we are heading into February, would it not be nice to send to the recipient with a bit of love?

I changed my project up a bit to reflect LOVE and used the Sending Love DSP (142733), and the banner and the basket with Red Glimmer Paper (121790).


As I was creating I wanted to use this like a bookend to hold my cards but the space between the basket and the card holder was too far apart to stabilize it as a bookend. I switched it, and used the box as my landing space platform. Of course, when creating I always do more!

The basket is made from our specialty designer paper board. This is great when you need something strong.

I created the fence in Crumb Cake cs (120953) and cut it out with my e-cutter and stamped with Hardwood (133035) stamp set with Early Espresso ink (126974), and then sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink to give it a weathered look.



I also created the grass in Old Olive cs (100702) and cut it out with my e-cutter and sponged the edges with Old Olive ink (126953). The platform is now ready for these cards ...



Aren't they great!! These are my over the top cards!

Lets hop over to our creative designer, Lynn Streifert, by clicking on the icon below and see how she used the 3D Love is in the Air!
