Hello Summer!

Hello, and welcome to summer!  My first cards are cased, but I added some sponging on the edges of the white card backdrop.  One is embossed in gold and the other one is embossed in copper.  I will add a sentiment when I need one.  The deer and friend stamp in the bottom one are retired, but I still love them.  I purchased an item in a store this week, and it came in this beautiful gift bag which I cut down for my own designer paper.  I used this as the background for my deer.  Love them.  I used tip top taupe for my matching ink.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Sitting Here

 Happy Tuesday, everyone!  These are cases, but I just love them.  They look as though you could just sit there and relax, right?  I hope you like them.  Thanks for visiting.  I may even get to do just this very thing this afternoon :).  Carol Smith

old Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Good morning!  Gonna be a beautiful day that the Lord made for us!  This card was born from a background paper from the January paper pumpkin.  After each month, I take the calendars apart and make a card from them.  This one turned out really cute.  Hope you like it.  I can't resist putting a little wink of stella on my props, so the butterfly glistens a little.  Thanks for visiting. Carol Smith

May Paper pumpkin

I hope you are enjoying this gorgeous day!  My son and his girlfriend are in Massachusetts looking for whale!  So awesome!  Anyway I wanted to show you what I did with some of my May paper pumpkin kit.  I used 1 of each of these patterened cards for a stencil, and sponged on the colors of choice and then lined it up behind the white cardstock.  So cute. And a great way to lengthen the life of these patterns.  Let me know what ya think...  thanks for visiting. Carol Smith  ps- the last 2 are just stenciled, not lined up underneath.  Sneaky, huh?

Hello, here I am again with a couple ideas...  the top one is just a cluster of flowers from a retired set pushed together with a copper embossed salutation.  The bottom one has a background from the January paper pumpkin kit.  After I use that calendar month, I take it apart and use the background.  the white em bossed flowers are from Peaceful Petals.  Hope you like these too.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith
