Kitty Heaven

Hi! So glad it is the weekend again! Yay! 
Today, I'm sharing a new card that I made for a co-worker who was sadden to place her beloved kitty to rest this week. I felt so sad for her, but I do understand losing a pet myself recently. I bought this kitty stamp from Our Daily Bread and it is puuurrrrfect!

I used Cheery Lynn Designs clouds & grass and the opulent oval is from spellbinders. I wanted to add some pearls around the edge of the frame. The butterflies are from Heartfelt Creations stamps and matching diecuts. I think it is most used stamp set. LOVE

I only colored the flowers and stems with copics...someday still hoping to be able to use them the way they are meant to be...
The brown flowers are perfect too. I don't know who makes them...part of my stash from the scrapbooking yard sale. 

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Hope you have a PUURRfect day! 
Hugs, Lisa

Life's Storms With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi, It's Lisa here this week sharing a manly card inspired by this week's challenge with Cheery Lynn Designs. I really dont make many man cards...but this week's challenge was a great inspiration to make some manly cards that I could really use in my stash! 
I have been thinking about a theme for quite some time... I LOVE nautical cards....Perfect!

The Mayflower is amazing! As well as the Pierced Banner and the Ship's Compass. I distressed the compass in blue distressed ink on the edges and in the center.  I also added some copper brads on all the corners and one in the center of the compass. The copper colored brads match the sentiment perfectly. 

I also wanted to add a bit of yarn and my son made me this cute little sailor knot. (Thank you Scotty)  The incredible ship and Compass really makes this card! I also wanted to add a bit more of the yarn throughout the card too. Behind the ship you can see a little bit of burlap.

Hello, everyone! Its Tuesday and it is weird for me to have this day off from the week? Hey, its col, hen I can scrap all day! Today, Im sharing a card that I made over the weekend, but didn't get a chance to upload it until today. The sketch is from Viva La Verve May Week #3. I kept it very basic because i wanted to focus on the sentiment and the butterfly. Lately, I have several friends and colleagues who have losing loved ones. So I love the sentiment thinking of all of them and also my recent lose of my beloved Louie. 

I chalked and distressed the edges and used all scrap paper. I also added little bit of pearls on the edges and in the center. I used Cheery Lynn Diecut and a Spellbinder diecut. 

A closer look the stamp set is from Verve. 

The wonderful sketch! 

Thanks for stopping by today!

My Anchor

Hello again! I'm sharing a card that I just finished this morning. It was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday # 397 sketch. I have been wanting to use this sketch all week! Finally, I was able to make it and enter the last day. I recently received my stamps from Verve and Im SO in LOVE with this nautical stamp set! 

I dont make very manly cards but I really have been needing to make some. I added clouds and pierced banner diecuts from Cheery Lynn Designs. 

I also added some yarn in the background and a few silver brad stickers on the corners and in the middle of the wheel/helm.

A few pop dots underneath. 
You can see spots of inked blue...
well, that actually was an accident on one side my fingerprint, so I added more throughout. 
Funny how an accident can make it work out. :)

The fabulous sketch! Thank you! 

Have a great Sunday! 
Hugs, Lisa

Hippy Road Trip!

Hi everyone, Happy Sunday! 
So today Im sharing with you a new card that I made for my youngest daughter who is leaving Arizona today for an extended road trip across the United States. Im sad for myself but happy for her...
She loves the hippy era and these diecuts from Cheery Lynn Designs made it perfect for me to make the card. 

I happened to have this old flower paper that worked so well. I used 4 diecuts from Cheery Lynn, Hippy Mobile, Grass Border, Garden of Love, and Pieced Stacker #4

 A closer view. I diecut the Love out twice once in black and once in white and glued them together. I then used the negative of the white and placed it on a handmade bag to match. Sorry No Pic :(

Not too bulky...I gave it to her yesterday with some emergency road money gift card. She loved it and said it's going in the car on the dash. Be safe baby! Love you! 

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate prayers for her and her girlfriend for a fun and safe trip! 
Thank you! 
Hugs, Lisa

Woof! Congratulations On Your New Puppy! With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi, Its Lisa back today sharing with you a new card using lots of the "Pet Pack" and "Meow & Woof! Diecuts from Cheery Lynn Designs. My inspiration came from my colleague who loves pink and has a little princess girl dog. The pierced banner along the side in pink I placed the "Woof" layered once in black and then diecut out again in white giving it a bit of a shadow. I also cut out the doghouse in pink and just the top of the doghouse in black and layered it together. A placed a pink Miniature Rose in the center just above the door opening. It is perfect for a girl doghouse. :)

Lots of layering of distressed pink and black papers. Then I placed the Fleur De Lis Doily in white for a bit more lacey and girly look. The paw prints are the smaller diecuts in white and I punched out a pink circle then glued it together. The dog bones are the 2 smallest ones and I added one to the top of the banner and one along the side of the doghouse. 

The sentiment was printed on my computer and then diecut with the dog bowl in pink cardstock. I diecut the center of the dog bowl in white, cut it out and placed it on top. Both paw prints and the center of the the dog bowl have 3D lacquer for a little shiny glaze. The poodle was printed from my computer and I added lots of pearls and pop dots throughout.
