Create Along With Us: May 2017

I hoard strips of cardstock....

(stamp: Papertrey Ink Movers & Shakers Sentiments  die:Papertrey Ink Winter Woods)

So when I saw Wanda's creation for Papertrey's newest release...

 I was inspired~from the sectioned sentiment down to the colorful dots.

I washi-blocked a sentiment from Movers & Shakers and stamped each phrase on a delicious strip.

Hope your day is floating along smoothly friends~

Faith Card

I assembled a card with bright cutouts that were laying on my desk.

 I'd rather get a card done than stash them away~

This time I stamped the dots~

 Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

Because You Make My Heart Happy

(stamps: My Favorite Things Because You  dies: My Favorite Things Because You/Wonky Stitched Circle,Sweet 'n Sassy New Beginnings butterfly)

Mom's Colorful Card

I got mom's Mother's Day card done, because she lives quite a ways away and I need to mail her box.

The Mother's Day stamp set I bought months ago had wandered off, but I found it! 


(stamps:Hero Arts CL334, Verve Beautiful Things/Potter's Clay/Great Friend,Papertrey Ink Palm Prints  dies:Verve Great Kindness/Pottery/Beautiful Flowers,Papertrey Ink Photo Finish Strips/Palm Prints,My Favorite Things Tree-mendous)

Check out the pops of color here at Card Concept!



I couldn't decide on one color~wanted to represent allllll of them on this clean and layered card ;).

 The card base came from a pack of polka dot card bases~it represents the boot.

I used the Tree-mendous die for the "egg" the birds are set on.

Hope you have a good one~

Lifts Your Spirits

I've wanted to try out palm prints~

(stamps:Papertrey Ink Palm Prints,free sentiment panel with Verve order-thankyou!  dies:Papertrey Ink Palm Prints)

These colors were perfect~


I can't even wrap my brain around how quickly Monday got here again.

So far, I'm surviving~hope you are too!
