Live with Promise

I had an absolute blast making this card using two stamps from Two Paper Divas.  I love the Pretty Posies stamp set...I've used it several times for cards.  My favorite part is using the pop dots to make the flower 3-D.  I stamped the flower in two sizes with a reddish color and I did two leaves as well.  I like to rough up the edges on my cards to give them a more rustic, vintage feel.
I love the colors in these papers with the corals, reds, limes and greens.  Using some reddish/white twine, I wrapped it around the top of the card a few times and added a double bow and then a cream twine bow on top.  I used a little round tag with a cutout heart and a couple pearls.  Using my notebook page die, I stamped one of the latest stamps from Two Paper Divas in a green color.  "Live with promise, Live with passion, Laugh with pleasure."  Love that!  You really have got to check out Two Paper Divas stamp sets.  They are so reasonable and they stamp perfect every single time.  And, they are also releasing new stamps every month, so be sure to keep checking for all the latest goodies! 
A couple butterfly pins and a little wooden flower that I colored the same green color, this card is ready to send to that special someone.

Simply the Best

My husband and I have been so very blessed this year.  We have sent several thank you cards and I seem to always need more!  So, when I saw this new saying by Two Paper Divas I thought it would be perfect for thank you cards.  You can purchase "You are Simply the Best" here. 
I used some polka dots, plaid and checkered papers from Simple Stories.  I love the Flower Silhouette stamp from Two Paper Divas and decided to stamp it in a dark green color.  Adding a paper clip, buttons, seam binding with a reddish twine and a scalloped trim, this card is ready to send to that special someone.  Thanks for taking a minute to stop by Kirby's Kards and check out my latest card.

Make it a great day!

Life is...

"Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans."  This is just one of the many new stamps from Two Paper Divas.  They have just released a bunch of quotes/sentiments that you will love for card making and other paper crafting projects. To me this quote means: if we spend all of our time planning and planning, life will fly by and we won't have had time to enjoy every minute of it.  And, all of those minutes are precious.  So, on that note check out the card I made.   
I used some patterned papers from My Minds Eye, of course I love the polka dots!  I also added some lace and a scalloped trim as well.  I wanted the saying to really pop, so I used pop dots and framed it with kraft paper.
Adding a couple buttons with some twine, pearls, a seam binding bow with twine and a heart, this card is almost complete.  Check out the little Faith tag on the bow.  It's also a Two Paper Diva stamp that is available here.

Thanks for taking a minute out of your busy day to check out Kirby's Kards.

Make it a great day!

Jam Packed with Love

Apricot, Strawberry, Grape, Blackberry, Raspberry, Peach...what's your favorite jelly?  Who doesn't love a warm, buttery biscuit with some homemade jam?  Yummy!  You've got to check out this little pocket I made filled with a few tags.  I used the latest stamp set, Jelly Jar, from Two Paper Divas for this project.  OMG!!!  So cute!  Here's a picture of the finished project.
Now, let me take you for a tour...
For the pocket, I used some polka dot printed papers, a doily, printable recipe card, seam binding and twine for the bow & a "handmade with love" ribbon along the bottom.  There's a tag on the pocket as well using the Jelly Jar stamp set.  The jar reads "Jam Packed with Love."  Love that!  I also used the "From the Kitchen of"stamp from the Jar Access #3 and the "Just for You" tag stamp is also from that same stamp set.
Here's some of the little tags I put inside the pocket.  I thought these could make cute bookmarks for recipe books or would be neat to put with a jar of jelly to give as a gift.  Anyway, there's several fun things to do with this project.

Thanks for checking out my blog!  If you have a minute, leave me a comment with your favorite jelly. My favorite is apricot.

Make it a great day!

Oh So Cute

I had so much fun making these oh so sweet baby cards.  My hubby's Aunt and Uncle just had their fourth child (finally a boy!) so I wanted to make a special card to send to them.  Congrats Tom and Meredith!  I used the same "Welcome Baby" stamp on both cards from Two Paper Divas.  It's from their Banners #1 stamp set.  I used a printable, a few patterned papers, buttons, seam binding, a ruler ribbon and a little paperclip.  I couldn't resist the little boy with the dog, yes I'm crazy about dogs!   
Here's the second I created for a baby girl.  I thought it was super cute with the little girl rockin' the baby doll.  Notice there's a dog in this card too!  I cut out the Rock-A-Bye Baby from patterned paper.  I just love the little paper bow on top of some pink twine and a seam binding bow.  The pink bow is a stamp from Two Paper Divas from the Jar Access #3 set.  I stamped it on some printed pink paper and cut it out.  I love all the layers.  
Thanks for checking out Kirby's Kards!

Make it a great day!
