Here we have Stella and Angus (the turtles) having a romantic ride on the water, sharing smiles and adoring glances.
I used an easel pattern that was very easy to duplicate. This is a rather small but cute card and very easy to make. I cute the cardstock to 4 ¼"x 10" and scored at 3 ½", 5", and 6 ½" using my Scor-pal. Once you've scored your lines, fold your paper accordion style and add adhesive to one of the panels closest to the middle. Fold over the large panel next to it and decorate. The card folds flat to fit in an 4 bar envelope. I cuttlebugged the background cardstock and sponged a little bit of ink over the embossed image. I colored Stella and Angus (Love Boat) using Copic markers and stamped the sentiment (I Adore You) on a punched scallop rectangle. I'm thinking of adding a little glitter to the water just to make it stand out...I haven't decided yet. All stamps, Scor-pal, Cuttlebug folders, punches, and Copics are available at The Rubber Cafe

This is the third post in a row that showcases a butterfly stamp. It must be that we all are longing for spring or something. Or the fact that these stamps are simply wonderful to work with!
This beauty is called Large Highwing Butterfly and is so easy and fun to make cards with. You don’t need to do much but stamp and color it and you have a lovely card. On this one I colored it up with my copics and layered two images and pushed up the wings some to get a 3D effect.

Take a peek over at The Rubber Cafe and you can pick up this stamp along with many other amazing things including copics!!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you have a great day!!
My card today (that should have been up yesterday, 'cause today is Thursday LOL!) is a birthday card for my aunt. Although I really love colouring images, I'm having a lot of fun using my sentiment as the focus on my last few cards. I stamped Swirled Happy Birthday in Rhubarb Memento Ink on a creamy coloured paper. My layout is based on this weeks sketch over at Mojo Monday.
Have a great week!

In the meantime...I thought I would share a box I did not too long ago using the Woodland Fairy. She's one of my fav's as fairies go. Back in Nov. Melissa did a tutorial for a nugget box using a match box template. This is the same concept but a little bit bigger to hold A2 size cards. This box holds 5 cards and 5 envies easy

Hi all! Hope you’re having a good start on the new week. We (that is Sweden :D) won our first Olympic gold minutes ago so things are grand around here! Wohooo!
Today’s card is a Tea Bag Holder Card. I love this folding, it’s pretty easy and people LOVE to get a little gift like this. I sometimes exchange the tea bags with small chocolate bars. That is yummy too! HERE is a tutorial if you want to try it yourself.
The front is decorated with one of my all time favorite Rubber Café images the Curled Mug.
And here is the inside
Take care! I’m heading back to the TV sofa and the Olympics!

Have you seen Lisa’s fun tutorial and challenge for a Flip Flop Flag Card? You can find it HERE. And I simply HAD to try that out. It was fun, and it’s sooooo cool to open the card up and see the 3D effect! Try it! And share it! Here is my take.
Yes, I’ve used these stamps before… But they ARE my favorites, and Valentine’s day is just around the corner! *smile* The dog is Labrador Love, the sentiment is one of great but small sentiments included in Just My Type.

Hi folks! Hope you are enjoying a good weekend with some time put aside for crafting! I’m substituting for Sarah today, she is in the middle of moving. I wish her a good move and a great scrap space at the new place!
I have a Just my Type card to share. I colored it red, inspired by a card by Sarah. At once I saw her card a while ago, I knew the typewriter had to be red sometime in the future. :) The heart is covered with red glitter and then a coat of Glossy Accent. It didn’t photograph well, but I can assure you the heart really pops IRL.
I used the same set of stamps – Just my Type - to make the inside a little more interesting. I cut a circle in a note it paper with my circle Nestability and used it as a mask, so that only a little part of the stamp ended up on my journaling spot.
Thanks for stopping by!

· 2 pieces of cardstock 5 ½" x 8 ½"
· Acetate strips 1" x 3"
· "Flag" pieces to go at the end of each strip of acetate.
1) Score one sheet of cardstock in half to make your A2 card.
2) Score second sheet of cardstock at 3 ½" & 5". Flip cardstock over and score at 4 ¼". Fold on score lines accordion style.
3) Line the front of the card (piece scored in half) with the inside of the card (piece scored accordion fold) and attach together. Do the same for the back of the card.

I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto white cardstock and cut it out with my circle nesties. My dp is from My Minds Eye and I finished the card off with some sewing around the larger panels, some paper piercing aroung the image and sentiment and then a few red crystals in the corner. How sweet is this!! You really need to get on over to the Rubber Cafe to check out all of thier new releases!!
Hope you enjoyed this card today. Thanks so much for stopping by.

I used scraps on these cards, so they were quick and easy. The image is stamped in Versafine Black Onyx, which I'm finding gives a very crisp stamped image. My favorite part about these cards is that they were quick. I love having a stamp around that I know I can use in a jiffy and it will always produce a nice card!

I think February is such a nice month with Valentine´s day, the Olympics and the first sights of early spring. Many nice things, that is!
This week, I’ve been making small cards in the size of 4x4. And when I was at it, I made a set with similar card based on the same design and set of stamps. I made a simple holder and tied it together with a ribbon. The stamps used are from the Labrador Love set which includes the two adorable labs and the I wuff you! sentiment used on the card holder (and the set has yet another sentiment not used here). The small sentiments are from the Just my Type set.
I stamped the labs four times each, once on the patterned paper, once on kraft cardstock and twice on white cardstock. Then I paper pieced them to make a 3D effect, and I also popped them on 3D foam. To make them sparkle some I added red stickles and red rheinstones. Here are close ups on the cards.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely new week!
