Big Boots to Fill

My 2nd card commission :). My sons liked my cards and asked me to make a father's day card

The images is Big Boots to Fill from Phindy's Place. The sentiment "for you father" is from Anna Griffin's. The big star and the label is nestability and the small star and stamp is from paper trey inc tiny tags. The card stock is coredinations sugar something and the pattern paper is from me and my big ideas I think. I just pulled out a random card stack and ruffled for a yellow/orange paper pattern and tore out one I liked. Totally winging it and still not using an electronic machine :)

Fill this Day with Joy

I decided to do a card for Mo's challenge this week. The theme is At the park. I love this image - Telling it the dog so decided to color it. The sentiment is from paper trey ink Every day button bits - cut using nestability  Grommet tag. The border around the image is from the simple memories set from close to my heart which I got from my friend Sheila. You can find her online shop here -

The paper pattern (colored clouds) is from walmart coloring book. at the center I used ribbon from Micheals. The button border (blue strip) is a cookie cutter border die - Buttons from scrapyland. I then embossed some clear buttons with yellow zing powder. A couple of butterfly buttons from hobby lobby, a cake doily - small and 2 Candi completed the card

There's a Nap for that

I love Art Impression stamps.
I had picked up a couple from Archiver's but had not paid much attention to the company name until my friend Michelle was looking for one particular one. Then I googled and realised that hey it's much cheaper when you get from the company direct :). So of course I got a bunch more. I find that digi stamps from bugaboo are also similar and so are some from I Brake for Stamps.
This one was so appealing especially nowadays when we hoard so many apps on our phones :)

The main stamp is Asleep on the Job and the sentiment "There's a nap for that"  came free with the order

The sentiment on the inside of the card is from paper trey ink. The flowers are made using ek success punch. I have also used MS punch for the border edge. The pattern paper is from DCWV posies.

It's been a busy month. I have not done much crafting. Thought I would catch up on it. I did color a couple of images and so decided to make it into a card. Lately all my machines have been sleeping. I use silhouette SD sometimes but even that is taking a rest. I did use the cuttlebug though for dry embossing and nestability cutting and some punches.
Here's the quick card

Sorry for the picture quality.

The image is from Strawberry Girl mo's digital pencil. The sentiment is pink stamper - (from fruit puns I think)
The pattern paper is from DCWV posies and the card stock is coredinations. I embossed it with cuttlebug folder and sandpapered the top to reveal the core. I colored some dew drops (these ones are the ones got from Michael's flower department . I think they are called acrylic drops or something). The tag is a nestability. I also added a pink acrylic flower.

Simple Things, Small Joys

Hi There!
This is Pam from The BugBytes and Papillon Digital Designs today with you on Shes a SassyLady. Thanks Sheila for having me as a Sassy designer.
School year is coming to and end and holidays are here. It's a busy time isn't it?

Today I have a card to show you.
Recently I got an brother embroidery/sewing machine and decided to try it out. It was a bit intimidating so I chose a one color simple project to start with - a butterfly.
I embroidered this with a stabiliser on a cloth but soon I am going to try it on paper too.

The base of the card is light bluish violet and not white. I used that to make a simple envelope from scratch too. The paper flower , paper butterflies and envelope edge punching are from Ek success punch and Martha Stewart punches.
The sentiment on the inside of the card is from paper trey ink.

Simple Simple card.
Hope you liked it.
Thanks for reading and thanks Sheila for having me here on your blog.
