Love You To The Stars (with Studio Calico Card Kit)

Here's the second card I made using the pink constellation paper from my Planetarium Studio Calico Kit. The pink paper made me think of a night sky so I cut out the tree/house silhouette out of dark grey paper to simulate night time. I used one of the other papers from the kit and cut out "Love you to the stars and back" to use as my sentiment.

Below, I also tried another version, but I just don't like it. Something isn't right.... Maybe I should have reversed the two sky papers, I'm not sure.

Sending You Love with Studio Calico Planetarium Kit

I recently received my first Studio Calico Card Kit that I subscribed to. This card is partly from the May 2013 called kit titled "Planetarium". The blue and redish-orange papers are from the kit. The rest are other materials I have in my craft room.

Hot Pink & Black Mother's Day Meadow

This is the card I made for my Mother for Mother's Day. She asked for a fuchsia & black card. I was stumped for awhile, but I happened upon this beautiful inspiration card.
I knew I needed a sheer ribbon for mine as well so it wouldn't chop up the card and hide the beautiful flowers behind it. The wildflowers are from a beautiful set designed by Lisa Johnson called "Larger Than Life" sold by PTI. She just released a new wildflower collection I ordered called "Peaceful Wildflowers" sold by MFT.

Flower Jar Mother's Day Card for Grandmother


I made this card for my Husband's Grandmother. I mostly copied the design from Michelle Wooderson's beautiful cards.

I didn't have a dotted stamp to go around the oval tag so I used a peach colored pencil to drawn in the stitching lines. I cut paper buttons for the flower centers.

I just got the most AMAZING alphabet stamp set that I am IN LOVE WITH -- Avery Elle's "Lovely Letters".  I just got it, and I used it to stamp "Granny" on the tag. I placed the "y" a little too far to the right, but I'll get better. This set is going to let me customize sentiments so beautifully. There are two lower case y's in the set -- one has a flourish on the end for if you end a word with a y. LOVE! I'm not affiliated with either of those companies, I just love this set. It's hard to find a good alphabet in my opinion! I think if you place the letters even closer together, it looks like a continuous cursive word!
