Sympathy Card - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!! Today is my turn to post on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Blog and I have a card to share with you. I had need for a sympathy card this past week and I thought the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Peace Dove" cutting files would be a beautiful image on my card.  


I used a file from the PPPR "Sentiment Spots 2"cutting files set to stamp my sentiment on.  My sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps' "Heartfelt Wishes" set.


Thanks for stopping by today!!

XOXO - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!! Today is my turn to post on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' BLOG.  Hope you had a great weekend and were able to have a bit of "crafty time".  Big thanks to those of you who hopped along with the PPPR design team this weekend!!  I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you today -



My card is sized to fit a No. 9 style envelope (business envelope).  I used a file from the "Cupid Cutting Files" set for the XOXO.  I embossed the hearts with my cuddlebug, added some enamel dots and did some pen stitching with my white gel pen.  My sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas "Happy Celebrations" stamp set - I just used the scotch tape masking method to stamp it in a straight line.  My background paper is from Doodlebug.


Don't forget to link up your projects with our new challenge "Made With Love" - in fact, I am linking up this card!!  For more info on the challenge and to link up your project, please visit HERE.

I created this card with my hubby in mind!! as I just LOVE chocolate :-)  For my card I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Cookie and Milk" cutting files.  I had the perfect sentiment to go with my card from the Cardz TV Stamps "Foodie Punnies" stamp set.  The cute designer paper is from Pebbles "We Go Together" 6x6 paper pad.  I chose to stamp  my sentiment on vellum and then finished up my card with some enamel dots and a heart paper clip.

Thanks a Latte - 3GJ dt

I am here today with my last post as a design team member for 3 Girl JAM.  I have had the privilege of serving on this design team for almost 2 years now and I have enjoyed every moment of it!!  However, I felt the end of this term was a good time for me to step aside and allow some other talented crafters a chance at working with this fabulous company.  So, with that said, let me share with you a card I made for my post today -


I used one of the newer products to the 3 Girl JAM store - "Simply White Lace" - as a border and then topped it off with a double bow using some Sterling Crinkle Ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM "Celebrations" bundle.  I used my 3 Girl JAM bow maker to create my double bow and then hot glued a snowflake gem to the top of it.  I used a sentiment from Cardz TV Stamps' "Brew Ha Ha" set. My "latte" is from the Silhouette store - id#50990.  Thanks for stopping by today!!
