Photo Frame Tree With Birds Birthday Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I liked the card I made for my cousin so well that I made another. This time I wanted to make a wood grain background with a white tree. I used red and blue birds for a splash of color. I made a photo frame using a dual stitched square die to get the stitching on the outside of the die cut.

I liked having the wood grain background act as a mat so I left 1/8" of it all around the "photo...

This project is so me! I bought this Stampin' Up stamp set as soon as I saw it. I was already living full time in our trailer at my mom's. I was still working but knew I would be hitting the road very soon. This set does not come with matching dies but I've been able to fussy cut as needed on other projects.

This time I wanted to create a scene and NOT fussy cut, so I did. I started...

I needed a masculine birthday card for my cousin. I knew I wanted to use the tree from Thoughtful Branches which was a special release stamp and die set made by Stampin' Up last fall.

I created an ombre background using Distress inks and Brilliance Metallic inks. I've had the Metallic Inks for many years now, I bought them for holiday cards, I made a HUGE supply of holiday cards and...

For today's project I used a Stampin' Up stamp set that I think it make such pretty cards. It has a unique sentiment "FRIEND" that I plan to use for these projects as I need cards to send to my friends back home. I decided this one would be on tan cardstock with aged brown edges and some random brown splatters round the edges. I colored the flowers with Copic Sketch marker colors: B00, B01 and...

I wanted to work on some projects using supplies I've not yet used. I like to use what I buy. It seems silly to purchase more supplies than one can ever possibly use and not wanting to fall into that habit, I do make a point of using any new supplies. This stamp set from Stampin' Up called Thoughtful Branches comes with a complementary die set, I say "complimentary" because it has some dies...

I continued my quest to use supplies that I've not yet used. I found a Stampin' Up set that has alot of small stamps and I had a great time using it. I took one of my cut down white cardstock pieces and stamped it up with a bunch of random stamps. I knew I wanted to use red and blue since it is US Independence Day week and all. For inks, I used Night of Navy, Early Espresso and I did not have...

Pine Trees Merry Christmas Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This project uses masking to create snowy hills. It is now mid-year when I start to think about building up my Christmas card stash to avoid a late year flurry of card making. I hadn't tried this technique for some time and had Stampin' Up's Lovely As A Tree stamp set out. I kept the card very simple, no extra embellishing. I chose a sentiment from my Christmas sentiments and am not sure what...
