Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!  Here are a couple samples I made with this week's Freebie Friday image:

The colors used on these are Daffodil Delight and Tranquil Tide, such a great combination.  The designer paper is from the fun Delightful Daisy pack.  I used the daisy stamp from Daisy Delight and the coordinating punch.  On the second card the same colors were used, but I used a retired stamp set called Grateful Bunch with it's coordinating punch.  I added some wonderful glitter enamel dots and called it complete.  

Thanks for visiting!

Longmont Senior Center - August 21, 2017 - another card

Here is another card we will be making at the Longmont Senior Center on August 21:


Fall is definitely in the air (at least for the moment) here in Colorado.  I have already seen evidence of leaves changing!  Days are getting shorter and nights are getting longer.  The kids have all returned to school.  Soon it will be time to begin preparing in earnest for our sailing adventure - hopefully we will be Bahamas bound this winter!

This card base is Cajun Craze (my absolute "go to" color for fall).  The brick panel was created by using the brick embossing folder and then stamping the Watercolor Wash stamp on top.  A little sponging around the edges gives it that feeling of "old" brick.  The leaves were cut out of some retired dsp and the sentiment came out of my "punchables" boxes.  These are stamps that fit really well into a punch and come from all over.  I've been collecting them for years.  The daisy is from the Delightful Daisy set and was stamped twice on Crushed Curry using Cajun Craze.  I punched them with the daisy punch and adhered them with dimensionals.  Quick and easy and I think perfect for fall!

If you want more information about the class at the Longmont Senior Center, ,just leave me a comment or send me an email (link in the sidebar).  This is a monthly class and we really have a lot of fun.

Longmont Senior Center - August 21, 2017

My class at the Longmont Senior Center is coming up and I am putting together the cards that we will be making.  Here is one:


If you are interested in more information about this class, please leave me a comment or send me an email (link in the sidebar).

I cased this wonderful card from a card I found here.  LeAnne is an amazing lady and I highly recommend you pay her blog a visit!  I changed up the sentiment, and I matted the Crushed Curry dsp on a piece of black cardstock instead of using washi tape.  I love that washi tape she used, but think my senior ladies would not be as happy with it as I am!

Products used for this card are:

Compulsion to CASE

In browsing through my favorite blogs, I came across this post from Wanda at My Creative Corner.  If you have the chance, you should definitely pay her a visit.  Her cards are always wonderful!  Within minutes I was rooting around in my piles for some cardstock to give this a try.  Here are the results:




These were quick and easy and I really like how they turned out.  I think I may make a few more and box them up as a gift set!  Might try some alternate colors as well.  Thanks for the inspiration Wanda!
