Crafty day cards

Last Saturday I had several friends over for a "crop" or crafty day. I really enjoyed playing
with all my scrapping and stamping goodies with kindred spirits!
We played from morning 'til night creating cards, scrap pages, mini books and more.
The current Stampin' Up mini catalog has some
fun sewing themed stamps, fabric and paper.

I designed this card and had the supplies ready for everyone to make a card for themselves. 

Since I have sewn longer than any other crafts I have done, sewing themed paper and stamps
are right up my alley. I made a few other cards with these supplies.

I also have this Hero Arts stamp I love and made two cards with it. The stamps is used as a back ground stamped on white paper. I then stamped it again on two pattern papers and I fussy cut the dresses and applied them to the original background. I made the flower on the second card by stamping my pattern pieces background stamp from SU onto vellum, then die cut the vellum with multi sized flower dies (Cuttlebug) and inked and distressed the flower layers before I stacked them into a flower with a brad.

This last card is for my sister's birthday. All the papers are from SU.
I love making these paper roses, and could not stop making them for this card.
I just need to now get it in the mail for her birthday on Tuesday. It will be late, but she expects that, 
because all my cards are usually late. The sentiment is there, just not the timing. And a late birthday card
just prolongs the celebration, right?

I can't wait until I can plan another crafty, scrappy day.


  1. Berta, as always, CUTE cards!! You should post some photos on how you make those cute little roses. I know you showed me....but it would be so handy to refer to your blog for the instructions :)

  2. I was lucky to see that gorgeous b-day card IRL and I am still thinking about those darling flowers! Ditto what Jenny said about a tutorial (!?!) and I'm looking forward to our next crafty day!!!


I would love to hear from you!
