Life just doesn't get any better than this!

Great card for any golfer you know! He is putting and almost has the ball in the whole. . Life just doesn't get any better than a day on the golf course.  This card was made by using the Sizzix  Die # 659724, Card, Center Step by Lori Whitlock.  It was easy to cut out using the Big Shot machine and the extended cutting pads because it is so long.  Then the Whipper Snapper Rubber Stamp, # LV106 Depth Perception was colored using COPIC Pens.  When cutting out this image after it was colored, it was tricky cutting the frame around it while still having the golf club sticking out further than the frame.  The phrase "Life just doesn't get any better than this!"  is from the AI rubber stamp # UME2805.  All the supplies can be found at

Let's Bee Together

In making this card, I punched out the Bee using the Triplits Die from Stephanie Barnard. It is such a happy Bee. Then I used the Debossing Folders, Together on the bottom of the card. Using a Stamp to make the blue clouds on the background and to highlight the "together" to make it pop, just really made the card special. Enhanced the bee's with some gems and then stamped inside with the phrase "Wishing you Blue Skies and Sunny Days".

Smile Card

Today I created a new card with the Debossing word "Smile" on it.  It has a colored picture of three flowers using Copic Pens.  Framed it in green patterned paper.  Using Tim Holtz Distressed ink to highlight the word "Smile" really makes it stand out.  Added some Petals using the green and red colors really balanced the card out.  It makes me smile when I look at it.  All of the supplies were obtained at

Happy Honeycombs

Happiness and Free Flowing Honeycombs make this card really unique. Using the Debossing word "Happiness" and then the Distressed Ink to make it really pop from the card. The Honeycombs are not in the frame that comes with it, they are free flowing which makes them happy. A few strands of hemp in the middle make the card balanced and then a larger Honeycomb from the Sizzix Triplits Hexagon Set is on the bottom.  This card can be used for multiple occasions and is also masculine.

Happiness and Honeycombs

Nice Card!!  We used the Debossing Folder, Happiness on this card.  Just got it into stock!  Used Tim Holtz's Distress Ink to "weather" or "fog" the words and around the edges of the card.  Used the Tim Holtz - Honeycomb Die to punch out the frame and then in different patterns the inside of the frame to create a great look.  Tore a piece of patterned paper for the background and finished up with a piece of twine to accent.  Great masculine card for any occasion.

Hollis is on the Hunt!!

This is the cutest card.  The man on the card is Hollis from AI and he appears to be hunting for something or someone special!  The inside of the card says"  IT IS NOT THE DESTINATION, BUT THE JOURNEY."  Isn't that the truth.  Here is a list of some of the tools we used to create this card.  The new Sizzix # 659724 Center Step Card, Bigz XL Die from Lori Whitlock, Hollis, AI-UMXY1901.  Hollis is colored with COPIC PENS and the Honeycomb Die cut # 659430 by Tim Holtz was used.  Great masculine card for any occasion.

Family & Friends Set of Debossing Folders by Tim Holtz

One of them is the new SIZZIX, SHADOWPRESS Debossing Folders.
6/each Family & Friends Set
This card was made using a full background printed paper.  Then I used a vertical stamp to
make the "fence like" background piece behind the focus piece.
I debossed the front piece using the "forever" folder from our new set.  Then I stamped a background on the page and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink to make the word "forever" really stand out. 
Then I distressed a cutout "lace like" piece and attached it to the card.  Adding some distressed leafs and a few little bling pieces to the top of the card it was finished.

Kiddo in Boots, Pink Dress and Balloons

We had fun making this card.  Using the Stampendous CRM292 Kiddo with Boots Cling, it was colored with COPIC Pens.  Using Tan Cardstock and adding a pink printed page from a 6X6 Paper Pad as the background and then adding a pink and tan print across the page was really nice.  Then we made some balloons to attach to her hand with ScorTape and Glitter Ritz and some floss so they would not fly away.  Now this Kiddo can wear her Daddy's boots and not fly away with her balloons.  Hope you like it.

Girl with Umbrella in the Wind

This card was fun to make.  We started with the IO F11002 and colored it in with COPIC Pens.  Cut out the girl and the many leaves to add to the card.  If you want bigger leaves, you can use the Elizabeth Craft Designs # 730 Curvy Leaves Dies.  Hope you enjoy this card.
