I have a fun Easter giveaway for you. I had these stamps donated for a giveaway quite a while back and the winner never claimed them and they didn't leave contact information for me either so I still have them. They are brand new in the package and are looking to find a loving home. They wouldn't get there before Easter but you could scrap some Easter memories with them or use them for cards and tags next year. All you need to do is leave me a comment and a WAY to CONTACT YOU! I plan on choosing a RANDOM winner at some point on Saturday, April 19th, 2014.

The cute set is Happy Hunting by Emma at My Creative Time.

Good luck! I will be back tomorrow with some fun Easter projects!

Accordion Birthday Card

My sweet husband just celebrated his birthday and I made this card for him. While I was at it I incorporated a couple of my favorite challenges. I followed the sketch at Peachy Keen Stamps and I did the 'no patterned paper' challenge at My Creative Time.

Here is the Peachy Keen Stamps sketch (I'm flipping it to show you how I interpreted the sketch).

Here is my card:

He he, isn't it cute. My husband plays the accordion and so when I saw this cut in the Musical Instruments set, in my Kawaii-a-Bunga Bundle from Lettering Delights, I was thrilled. I decided to use the print and cut feature on it. I printed on some pretty textured American Crafts cardstock. It really gives it a nice texture and look. My accordion is on an Action Wobble and looks pretty darn cute wobbling around. I stamped it with a Boy Mates Face stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps. The sentiment and music notes come from My Creative Time's, Wow! So Many Candles stamp set. The card base itself was cut using My Creative Time's 4x4 Journal Die + More die set.

The card was a success here. I hope you like it too!

Have a great day! Hugs- Glora

April Showers Bring...

I wanted to share a mini sized card (3"x4") that I made to fit a gift card for Easter inside.

I made this up with the color/photo challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps in mind. The colors and picture just reminded me of spring in its sweet subtle pastel colors. What pretty inspiration:

This is what I came up with. A cute little chickie with her umbrella.

I used the following items to make this: Peachy Keen Stamps - CottageCutz Shower Peepers Dies and stamps. I also used the PK-107 Cloudy Day stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps. For the card base I made a shape card out of My Creative Time's Stitched 3x4 Journal Die and I also used the Stitched Grass Die as well.

Have a great day! Hugs- Glora

Wishing You Brighter Days

This card came together in minutes. I love that about Emma's products. I needed a quick card to put a gift card in for a friend going through some rough times. I kept it plan and SIMPLE. No frills at all but they loved it!

Here is what it looked like when it was opened up. The only thing that ended up different was that I added a little note for them.

Like I said simple and easy but it served its purpose beautifully.

I used Emma's Surprise Pop Out Card along with the Stitched Gift Card Pocket die and last of all the sentiment came from Treasured Moments

Plane and Simple Thank You!

I just LOVE My Creative Time products. They carry such a PUNCH! Here is a thank you card that I made using only My Creative Time products.

Isn't that paper airplane sweet? I love it.

I used the following My Creative Time items: Fly Away with Me Sentiments (for the Thank You!), Plane and Simple (for the plane & simple...), Fun Stitched Edges (for the notebook edges), 4x4 Journal Die + More (for the card base, red piece, blue piece and itty bitty hearts and stars), and Fun Paper Airplane Die (for the airplane die and the stamped stitching). 

I hope you enjoyed my card. Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora

Chickie Easter Tags

The new March 2014 Stamp Kit of the Month at Peachy Keen Stamps is SO CUTE!!! I can not get enough of it! I just HAD to color up these ADORABLE little chickies! 

Aren't they the cutest?! All sweet and fluffy! Gotta love them! I made up some cute little Easter tags using the March 2014 SKOTM by Peachy Keen Stamps and the Just Tags Dies by My Creative Time. I also added some May Arts Chevron ribbon, hemp twine and other small embellishments.

I hope these chicks make you smile as much as they made me smile. I'm going to add this to the linky party going on HERE at Peachy Keen Stamps. If you bought any of the new stamps for the March release you can link up your projects HERE too.

Have a great one! Hugs- Glora
