Flowers Card Set

The "Beautiful Blooms II" stamp set from PTI is beautiful and I was looking for the right project to use it on.

This is a gift I made for my son's teacher for Passover. This gift set was inspired by this card set from ChicNScratch (I really recommend following her blog, her work is really lovely).

The set:

(by the way - if it looks like the cards are opening from the wrong side - they are not - they are Hebrew cards).

 Each card got a matching envelope

I made a box to put all the cards in, basic instructions for the box are from here and I adjusted the size to match my mini cards.


Close up to each of the cards:

and the envelopes

I'm submitting to the Lily Pad Cards "A Flower Challenge" and to the Inspired challenge at Lawnscaping Challenge site.

פסח הגיע

שמחה רבה, שמחה רבה... פסח מגיע והשנה החלטתי להיות מוכנה בזמן.

ביום רביעי הייתי אצל ענת (Mrs G) המקסימה ובהשראתה הכנתי כרטיסי חג שמח.

תמונה קבוצתית.

וכמובן שצריך גם מעטפות.

עכשיו נשאר "רק" לקנות מתנות לכולם ואני מסודרת לחג :-)

Notes house

A friend of mine is going back to work after 7 months of maternity leave. I made her a small "going back to work" gift to ease the "pain".

I had a box for notes that I got from a vendor at some point, so I covered it with cute patterned paper, decorated it with butterflies, punched borders and lots of shimmer.


The sentiment I choose to use is from the "Find Joy" stamp set by Hero Arts. I thought it is really fitting :-) and I wanted it to be in front of her every time she grabs a note. I colored it with copics and used distress ink for the edges.


Here is a close up on the butterfly, I had it sprayed with the Tsukineko gold Shimmer, I hope you can see it. It turned out really shiny and beautiful.


I added a matching tag from the left over of the paper.

CMIT Featured Designer Challenge - St. Patrick's Day design

Lots of Luck to you card.

This card is entered into the  CMIT Featured Designer Challenge - St. Patrick's Day design challenge.

I had so much fun creating this card.

I stamped 4 large hearts and 4 medium hearts (Hearts Print stamp set from Papertrey Ink) on Black PTI cardstock. I then embossed them all with white embossing powder.

I then die cut them all and another 4 small hearts from green patterned paper.

From the hearts I created a shamrock (four-leaf clover). I glued the layers of hearts to make the petals. I finished it by adding a big shiny brad and colored a few of the flowers on the big hearts with a copic marker that matched the color of the patterned paper I used (YG63 Pee Green). I am very impressed that I can color with the copic on the embossed image. Big surprise :-)

I added a ribbon in cream and some twine that I colored with the same copic as above. The charm is an added symbol for the luck I am wishing the person who will receive this card.

The front panel was adhered to a white card from white PTI cardstock.

I also decorated the inside of the card to match (If you notice it's opening from right to left, you are right - it's not a mistake - this card is going to a Hebrew speaking person, and this is how we write and read).

Baby Card

It started as a one layer baby card using my new Papertrey Ink Dot Spot stamp set on a Hero Art layering paper.

But then I decided I want to add the hand symbol for good luck (The hand - called Hamsa, coming from the word Five in Arabic, is a symbol of good luck in the middle east) and so I decided to add the ribbon to hold it.

The wording on the card is the name of the baby in Hebrew.

This card goes into the:

1.  "Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge in the Moxie Fab World" challenge on Moxie Fab World
2.  Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes challenge.
