So, This is what I was doing!

I have been busy, busy, busy! I have a wedding invitation order, had some website sales including one of 44 cards, then I had to check in with the local flower shop on Saturday and...."We would like 50 Mother's Day cards...can you get them here by Monday?" Um..ok! I also had a few other little sales here and there......So I stamped ALL weekend, and I loved it.
This is one of the cards I made this evening. I am completely in love with the fact that I can now make bigger cards since I found a supplier for bigger sized card wrappers & envelopes. This card is a 6x6, complete with a ivory linen envelope and wrapper. I used a Stampin up kit for this one. I have had it sitting around forever so I am finally getting some use of it (while also learning to use up stuff I have...Man it's good to actually get rid of some of it and in a super pretty way)
I cut the Soft Sky textured cardstock 6x12 and scored it down the center. Then I used a peice of the river rock texture c/s and fixed it to the left hand side. Next I cut a peice of the pink DSP from the kit and used the spiral punch up the side.

After that, I used some of the c/s sticker borders to add some fun color and pattern. Then I used a reverse peice from the pink, which is the brown, river rock & soft sky pattern, and placed it accross the top after I tied some spring moss & aqua mist twill from Papertrey Ink.
Next, I layered the prima paper flowers and added a button from Basic Grey.
Then I finished off the card with the squares layered with another strip of c/s sticker and stamped the sentiment from "Pond Life" & the thing-a-ma-jig (yeah, I don't know what it from the B&C Circles set, Both from Papertrey Ink. Last, but not least, I added a pearl between the "thing-ama-jigs" and also three along the top corner of the card.
With all the stamping have been doing I should have a few posts for the next little while. Although I am not caught up yet with my orders, I will try and have a bunch of new things to show you leading up to the May Papertrey Ink Release, so check back often. Hope everyone had a fantastic week-end.


  1. Jewels,
    that is so pretty. I love how you "pieced" it all together. It is so pretty and has so many colourful elements. I am curious if you would perhaps share how you did your little on-line shop. I am interested in perhaps doing my own and I don't know where to start. If you want to contact me go to my CTMH website and all my contact info is there.
    I really hope to hear from you.

  2. Wow, you really have been very very busy!! I saw all your uploads on PTI ... unbelievable! Have you even slept over the last few days, weeks??? Anyway, the rest of us are all loving your creative mojo!! Thanks for all the inspiration!!

  3. those thingamajigs are great! hahaha
    I love your work girl!

  4. Jewels....that is gorgeous. I didn't do any Mothers Day cards. I had to send my mom a non Mothers Day card. How sad is that? I should have bought one from you!!!
