Eastern Beauty Bundle

Happy Friday, everyone! I know I'd been absent. I had shingles! Yikes! If you haven't had a shingles shot, please get it. This darn thing was painful. A slight touch of my clothing made me wince. Sadly, I've experienced both the sharp pains of childbirth and kidney stones. However, the nerve pain brought by shingles felt like having tiny teeth gnawing at my inside. It was a dull yet prolonged pain. My doctor prescribed pain meds, but it only made me groggy. I was in too much discomfort and too tired to do anything for a few weeks. Oh well, I am better now.

I was not initially planning on purchasing the Eastern Beauty bundle, but after seeing so many projects on Pinterest and Youtube, I finally did. I'm so glad! This set is so versatile. I can't wait to use it to create Christmas cards. Apparently, this same image and framelits that you see on this card with a red or cherry cobbler card stock turns into a poinsettia. Some crafters are just so clever. Thank goodness for Pinterest. 

I am also very excited that Stampin' Up! finally have Thick Very Vanilla card stocks (awesome for card base) and mini stampin' dimensionals now (for those small images or cut-outs). 

Thank you for stopping by. The list of products used to create this card is below.

Bright Wishes

One of the very first stamp sets I purchased from the brand new catalog is Bright Wishes. I love how this card turned out. This well image reminded me of the one we had when I was a little girl in the Philippines. Except that was not a wishing one, it was just a well with a water pump next to it. Haha.

I colored this after quite a challenging day in the office and immediately felt a lot better. What a gift it is to be able to do this as my therapy.  I love my matter how hectic it gets. Smile

Thank you for stopping by and happy weekend, everyone! It's been very warm here in Northern California and will be even hotter this weekend. Summer is upon us.

Pun Intended

Happy Friday, everyone! I CASED this card from the many pins on Pinterest - just added my own twist to it. I am in love with this stamp set called Pun Intended and it's a shame because it's one of those stamps sets, too that I didn't get to play with as much as I should have. This is exclusive to hosts and also will be retiring end of this month. It's a definite keeper. Don't you just love Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black and Pink Pirouette? The tiny heart (retired) punched out using the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper was something I just added after I'd put the card together. It needed something more and it worked. Sometimes, it just does. Smile. I didn't expect it would turn out so cute. 

I stamped the camera image twice, fussy cut out the flash and punched the lens using 1/2 circle punch, then adhered with stampin' dimensionals.
Well, that's all for now, folks. Thank you for stopping by. The list of products used to create this card is below. Have a good weekend!
