A Tea for Two Get Well

Today I’m sharing a cheerful Get Well card featuring an older Papertrey Ink stamp and die set, Tea for Two.  As an avid fan of all things tea related, I’m revisiting this set and can see so much potential for more projects.    I’m hoping this card will be as comforting as a hot cup of tea!

This is a mini slimline (my favorite) card measuring 6″ x 3 1/2″.  I’ve recently become a little more selective on the products that I purchase and I’m striving to use more of what I’ve already purchased.  So I decided to only purchase SU’s Tea Boutique DSP, which I used for the floral background.  The tea cups and teapot are stamped with SU’s Crushed Curry, Real Red and Mossy Meadow inks.  I had some retired Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine to string the tea cups.  The sentiment is also from the Tea for Two stamp set.

I used a really old sentiment from CTMH on the inside.  Besides the heartfelt wish of this sentiment, I absolutely love the font!

I’m playing along with the Tic Tac Toe #167 Challenge here...

I chose the third column down: Scallops, Twine, Patterned Paper 

And also The Paper Players PP597 Sketch Challenge here...

Thanks for stopping by on this last day of June.  Have a wonderful day!

Take care,


It’s a Pinwheel Party!

I sat down to make this card and got totally lost making pinwheel after pinwheel!  Now I have a desk full of pinwheels that I’ll be turning into cards soon.  Creating this one layer  card was really fun using the Pinwheel Party bundle from The Greetery.  My pinwheels were created using the stencils and masks that come in the bundle, which can be purchased separately also. Stenciling is quickly becoming a favorite technique of mine.  The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled’s Celebrate 2 stamp set and is heat embossed.

I was inspired to make a one layer card, which is something I rarely do, by The Paper Players Challenge

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Totally Digging You!

Hello!  I hope you’re enjoying the second official day of summer.  I absolutely love summer!  It wasn’t always my favorite season.  It quickly became the favorite when I started working in a school…for understandable reasons.  Well, I’ve retired from the school library this spring, so perhaps another season will now become the favorite…we’ll see.  

Today’s card share is another fun, mini slimline that I created for my grandsons.  Even though they’re pretty young (5 & 1 yrs.), and I get to see them on a regular basis, I enjoy popping cards in the mail to them.

Again, this is a mini slimline that measures 6 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  The top panel measures 6 1/4 x 3 1/4 with three squares cut using SU Layering Squares Dies.  Before attaching the top panel with foam tape, I stenciled some subtle clouds to the card base behind the squares.  I created the road using Lawn Fawn’s Slimline Simple Road Border.  The cute little construction vehicles and sentiment are from Newton’s Nook, Love Quarry stamps and dies.

I’m playing along with the Tic Tac Toe #166 Challenge….

I chose the middle row across: Car/Truck, Square, Blue

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’re having an enjoyable day!

Take care,


A Sweet Summer Hello – June CC2C

Welcome back to this month’s installation of CASEing Coast to Coast with Karen Hallam in CA and myself here in PA.  If your new here, once a month Karen and I take turns CASEing (Copy and Selectively Edit) each other’s projects concentrating on a specific stamp set, card layout or theme.  This month, I choose to go with a Summer theme.

I created my mini slimline card using the adorable stamp set, Beach Buddies from Sunny Studios.  I love the cute critters and all the fun, summery accessories in this set.  And coloring them was so much fun!

If you haven’t travelled West yet, head on over to Karen’s blog to see her summer inspiration.  Speaking of inspiration, this card is heading to my two summer fun loving grandsons.  Although they both have somewhat painful looks in this photo.  I think Mom may have been taking too many pictures at the pool!

I’m playing along with the Tic Tac Toe #165 Challenge this week…

I chose to go diagonally:  Swimming/Pool, Embellishment, Circle

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you’ll be having some summer fun, too!
