On Eagles' Wings

I ordered a couple of stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs! This set is called On Eagles' Wings. Isn't it nice? I received it earlier this week and this is the first item that I have designed. Granted, it is not my best work but is still a nice card that did not take too long to put together. Stamping the verse over the image was not an original idea. I saw it it used on the Our Daily Bread web site. It's a great technique isn't it? I think this would make a wonderful Fathers' Day card?
These are the items used to construct the card:
On Eagles' Wings Stamp Set
So Swirly Stampin' around wheel
Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl Embossing Folder
Stampin' Up Brads
Bordering Blue ink
Night of Navy ink
Bordering Blue Card Stock
White Card Stock
Paper Piercing tool

Blogs that are worth the read!

Every now and again I will be updating the Other Blogs to read section of this blog. Today I thought I would let you know about a few blogs that I read on a regular basis. First check out We Will Always Have Paris. I get wonderful inspiration every time I look at this one. Am I right or am I right? Next there is Cami's blog at Stamp A Little Love Baby! Her work is always fresh and very professional looking. She's a creative genius! Last but definitely not least is No Time To Stamp. All I can say is Ahhhh! Aren't those creations beautiful! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. If you haven't checked them out, go and have a look! Enjoy!

Magnolia Time - Pink

Just a quick post today! I wanted to show you this card with a different background paper. The Apricot Appeal paper in the last post brought an understated elegance to this card. Now look at it with the Pretty in Pink paper. It's now a perky, pretty, pink card with a new attitude. Enjoy!

Magnolia Time Tutorial

Hello ladies! Well, I just could not resist this image from Stampin’ Up! I guess my background in horticulture has gotten the best of me. How could one resist this bold and beautiful image? The name of this stamp is “From the Garden” and can be had by any hostess with a $150.00 minimum order. Here is a list of supplies and how I made the card.


Mellow Moss CS

White CS

Close to Cocoa CS

Prints Pack Paper

Brown Staz On ink

Watercolor Wonder crayons from the Neutrals, Soft Subtles and Earth Elements packs.


Round Tab Punch, 1 3/8 inch circle punch and wrought iron punch.

Define your life stamp set, From the Garden stamp and Merci stamp set.

Stampin' dimensionals or scraps of rubber.

  5. Adhere the Apricot paper to the front of the card.
  6. Use the round tab punch to punch a tab of Close to Cocoa.

You Cured Yet?

I was randomly chosen for the special weekly RAK over at Split-coast Stampers. These images were sent to me by PMR. Aren't they adorable? I whipped these cards up real quick today because I really needed some get well cards. I used watercolor crayons and paper from the Stampin' Up! prints pack on Certainly Celery card stock. Yes I did CASE this from the Fall/Winter 2007 catalog. I just made a few changes. Enjoy! Now it's your turn!
