Bernadette's One

 


Hello and welcome. Glad you could stop by today.

Today's card is for our youngest great-granddaughter. Her first year sure went by fast. Sentiment is my own, but I know it's not unique. When writing the sentiment, I had a lot of fun playing around with the font in my Hallmark program. Background paper was found online, frame is Stitched Circles by Die-namics. Photo is the most recent one my granddaughter sent. If I go more than 3 days without a new photo, I text my granddaughter and tell her I'm in Bernie withdrawal, and a new one comes in about 5 minutes.

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe. 

Take Care!

Floating Hearts

 




Hello and welcome. Happy hump day.

After several failed attempts I think I finally made an acceptable floating stripes card. Die cut hearts are Sweet & Sassy Framelits from SU, pp is a just the right size piece from my scraps. It took about 3 attempts to get the cs strips to be somewhat acceptable. I adhered the cs strips with double sided tape and popped the hearts up with strips of mounting tape.

Thank You

 




Hello and welcome. Hope all is well with you.

I was in need of a thank you card for a friend who crocheted me a cell phone pouch to hang around my neck. It has been so nice not having to remember where my phone is.

After perusing Pinterest I came up with this design. Pp was found online, die cut is Classic Diamonds from Spellbinders. I popped up the panels and added gems to the die cut. Sentiment is computer generated.

Woven Birthday

 


Hello and welcome. Here we are the middle of January already.

Today's card turned out to be a little frustrating for me. I had the crazy idea it might be kind of cool to create a woven background from strips of plaid paper. I cut 1/4" & 3/8" strips and alternated them. At first I was a little confused with weaving but my brain finally kicked in. After weaving the strips together I added a Silhouette cut frame.  Sentiment labels are Labels Large & Small from Spellbinders. Sentiment was computer generated and label popped up. I can't decide if I'm happy with it or not but it will be going to my b-i-l.

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.

Take Care!

Thinking Of You

 


Hello and welcome. Happy hump day.

Today's card is for our daughter's m-i-l. She's recovering from Covid, luckily it was a light case. I had seen a video for this card on You Tube but didn't make note of who was doing it.
Pp, purchased several years ago, is from SU. Flower is from a small Marvy hand punch that was bought in the mid '90's. Flower is sprayed with Dazzling Diamonds and a small clear gem added to the center. Dies used are Fleur DiLis Motifs and Classic Circles by Spellbinders. Sentiment is computer generated and die cut is popped up. Ef used is Textile by Cuttlebug.
