Happy Retirement


My husband asked me to make two Happy Retirement
cards for former work friends who are retiring.



The first one is a CASE of a beautiful card that Melissa Phillips made.
I love it and think it makes a fabulous retirement card.
I used Feathered Friends 12, Border Bling Flowers and Some Like It Hot (flowers) 
from Papertrey Ink.
I used BotaniCuts Palm from The Greetery and
Enjoy the Journey from Gina K. Designs.
The embellishments are from Trinity Stamps and called Bubble Blow Out.


On this card, I used the Little Pickup from Honey Bee Stamps.
The Cuttlebug Diamond Plate Embossing Folder,
the Stitched Arch Stax and Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things,
Country Roads from Gina K. Designs.

Time to Coast

 Yesterday I was able to play with the new
Gina K. Designs
Time To Coast stamp set and Master Layouts 5 set.

Here is a look through my imaginary windows.




I made a mask with Masking Magic to cover the images
while I sponged the backgrounds.
I colored the images with Polychromos.
I used some of Gina's beautiful patterned papers
to wallpaper behind the windows.

Wishing You a Happy Day and Enjoy Your Birthday

 This is a Gina K. Designs kind of day!
The first card is my take on her Live from yesterday.


I stamped the Sketched Flowers and leaves with GKD
Sea Glass, Turquoise Sea, Black Onyx, Jelly Bean Green and Fresh Asparagus inks
and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to make them shine.
I used two different patterns from the Ang & Me patterned paper pack.
I used Master Layouts 2, 3 & 5, the Enjoy die and
the Enjoyable Greetings set.


On the second card, I used the GKD Sweet Spring stamp set and
heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
I colored the flower and leaves with
Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, and
used a beautiful patterned paper from
DCWV's Citrus Mat Stack.
