Classy Cards N Such - Elegant Butterfly

Here is a card I made for Classy Cards N Such Blog.   I sure love the Beverly Hills California Collection  die by Sue Wilson.   It always gives my cards an elegant look.  The paper I used is Graphic 45 Botanical Tea.   The corners were cut with a die from my stash.  The  Willoughby Butterfly Wings die I used is by Memory Box.  I added Silver Rhinestones as the finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Have a fun and safe 4th of July.

Let's Have Tea

Here is a shabby card I made.  I used The Tea Shoppe stamp from SU.   I used  strawberry ink on one side of it and cabana blue on the other.  I sponged distress ink around the edges.  I added pearls and flowers to the cup and placed it on  a doily also sponged with distress ink.  I placed it on the floral paper, added the frame, layers, wooden clock and the bow with the stick pin.  I sponged all the papers ribbon and the clock with distress ink to give it more of a vintage look.

Thanks, for coming by today.

The Shabby Tea Room ~ Tea Party Girl

Here is a card I made for The Shabby Tea Room call.   I really like shabby cards and nothing says shabby better than lace,  ribbon and pearls.  I love this sassy little gal that is all dressed up for a tea party.  

The paper I used today is from Marion Smith-Romance Novel.   I thought adding this pretty lace at the top was so perfect with this paper.  The image I used is clip art that I found on Etsy.   I used distress ink to sponge around the edges. The teapot I used is from a teapot stack die that I used.  I did not want to take away from the main image so I only used the tea pot that was on the top of the stack and I decorated it with pearls.  The doily was cut with a Cheery Lynn die.  (I never tire of using it)  The Party Music die is from Memory box.    I added the crinkled ribbon, a rose and pearls in the corners.

Thank you, for coming by today and taking a look at my card.  I hope you have a great day.

The bicycle stamp I used is by Impression Obesession called Riding Pretty.   I sponged in some grass around the bicycle and sponged a nice blue sky.  The Butterfly is by Memory Box and is called the Willoughby Butterfly Wings.  The lock and key were made with a die set I had in my stash.  I added seam binding and lace along with some pearls.

Classy Cards N Such-Beach Accordion Fold Card

I saw an accordion fold card (step) tutorial on Pinterest the other that looked interesting and not to difficult to make.  The tutorial was very easy to follow.  That is a good thing, because if it gets too involved or things take a bad turn, I usually am done with making something new.  I bet some of you know what I mean.

I absolutely love the Graphic 45 By The Sea paper that I used.  To be honest,  I just really love Graphic 45 paper.  I have several pads of it.

For full details of my card please check it out at the Classy Cards N Such blog.  Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you all have a great and enjoyable weekend.

MFP Stamp Shop - Pots and Vases 2




Here is a card I made for the MFP Blog Hop with their new stamps called Pots and Vases 2.  The sentiment is from the MFP All Postal Stamp Set.  I used  the Impression Obsession 6 in 1 Rectangles Frames around the pretty vase of flowers.  The flowers were made with the Memory Box Prim Poppy die.  I added a small bow as the finishing touch.  I love the colors of this card on the crisp white card stock.

Have a wonderful day and come back to visit soon.
