Easter Cards

Hello everyone!  Here are a few cards that I made for Easter.
I am late posting these but I thought you might like to see them.

The first card has a mini cupcake liner so it has great dimension.

This second card uses a vine and leaf trim with some great buttons for
texture and dimension.

Love the way these came out.  Thanks for stopping by!
Please let me know what you think.


Children's Birthday Cards

Hello Everyone!
    It has been a while since I posted.  Today I have some children's birthday cards to share with you.
I have had these Wall Art pieces for a long time.  I decided to use them to create a fun birthday card.  My motto is if you're making one you might as well make several.  Hope you enjoy them!

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of cyber space.  Please let me know what you think.

Hi Everyone,
  Computer issues have kept me away for a while.  In the mean time I have been really busy
creating and crafting.  I have been working on lots of Valentine cards.
I will post some each day for the next few days.

Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate any and all feedback.

Bye for now, Gail

Hello Everyone!
   My card today was inspired by a card done by Deb over on
You can see Deb's card here
I used a piece of paper that had just the black outline of the daisies.  I cut it out and adhered it to a piece of Colorbok Pearlescent Paper that was sold in a pad of 20 sheets at Ross for $3.99.  Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug using a Spellbinders embossing folder.  I looks like branches.  The folder did not go the full length of the card stock so I used a different folder and embossed a small portion of it on the bottom.  After that is was a matter of "gilding the lilly".  I used a canary Duo Daubber to color the centers of the flowers.  I punched out an oval from the Colorbok paper and a label from an EK Success punch.  I added Stickles to the flower centers, inked the edges of the white label, and added pearls to the sentement.  I used a white heavy weight cardstock for the card base and a piece of yellow to layer it.
I like the way it turned out.  Thanks for stopping by.  
Bye for now.

Hello everyone!
Just made this card.  I saw a video on You-Tube for making the diamond patterned background and wanted to give it a try.  I have had my crimper for years but almost never use it.
The card base is a pearlescent white, the poppy card stock is DCWV, the patterned paper is from Me & My Big Ideas,(2008).  The ribbon, flowers and pearls came from my stash.

This also gives me a chance to post to their color challenge #273 over at

Thanks for stopping by.

Bye for now.  Hope you stop by again soon.

New Year and New Posts

Hello everyone!
   It is a new year and I am back.  It has been 2 and a half years since I last posted and a lot has happened in the time.  I have had some health battles but everything is improving on that front.
My physical therapist says I need to use my hands to get back to normal.  I started creating some projects before Christmas and I have been participating in some challenges over at for New Years.
   My goal is to post several times a week.  I have been collecting ideas from Pinterest that I want to try
and share with all of you.  I hope you will bear with me as I travel down this road I call my life.

The first picture is of some box cards that I saw a tutorial for on You-Tube.  Each card has Christmas Gift Tags in it.  The next picture is of some Gift Card Books that I mad for Christmas.
                                                                        Bye for now!

Hello everyone!
Today's card is this pretty hydrangea card.
Hydrangea is the favorite flower of my friend JoAnn.
I custom colored the paper I used for the blossoms.
I used watercolor paper and did direct-to-paper
inking on the entire sheet of paper.
Then I sprayed the entire sheet of paper with water and left it 
to dry.  When it was dry I punched a boat load of flowers
from the water color paper.  I formed each one using
a mouse pad and a stylus.  I used several circles of scrap card stock
layer with foam tape to add dimension to the head of the flowers 
and then proceeded cover them with the flowers.  
After all of the flowers were in place and dry I added a liquid pearl
 dot to the center of each flower.The purple border was 
punch using the Iron Rail set from Martha Stewart.

Tjhanks for stopping by.  I appreciate the time you spend with kme
Hugs,  Gail
