Thankful,Grateful, Blessed


Good Morning all. I'm back this morning for another card I created for CAS Colours & Sketches#388-Colors

I love the colors the team has chosen. They fit right into the Fall season for card making. Although this is the third card I created using this SU Gather Together Bundle and to post over at CAS its one I finally felt comfortable with. The other two were ok, but they just didn't please me, so it was back to the drawing board and now I feel more confident with this design. I know it's fairly simple, but I guess it's just more ME. Besides that, I think this will be simple enough to produce Thanksgiving cards for my family and a few friends.

Products Used:
Gina K  Autumn Wreath Builder sentiment
SU card stock, Mango Melody, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider
SU Subtle 3D folder
SU Stitched Nested Labels Dies
SU Gather Together Bundle
MFT Fabulous Foliage, A2 Stax1Stitched Rectangle Die-namics, A2 Rectangle Stax Set 2 Die-namics

I hope you have a blessed week. Stay Well and Safe.
Blessings, Bernie Bee

Just Saying Hello


Good evening. I hope you all have had a great weekend so far. Mine has been quiet and I was able to create a card for Freshly Made Sketches Challange. So it's been a win, win weekend so far.

I was in need of Hello cards to send to several friends this coming week, although I would love to see them in person. I looked through my Altenew stamp sets, which unfortunately are not used enough, and decided on Floral Wreath. I felt the larger leaves and the flowers would work well in the corners of the card. I leaned towards more Fall colors and really liked the way it came together.

Products Used:

Altenew Floral Wreath with matching dies

Gina K Ink Cubes: Faded Brick, Sweet Corn, Hampton Art Black Ink

SU Old Olive

SU Folder (retired)

Neenah Solar White 110#, Neenah White 80#

Sentiment/ unknow manufacturer

SU Stitched Shapes

Well, I need to go clean up my craft desk so I can do some creating possibly tomorrow. Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday, and stay Safe and Well.

Blessings, Bernie Bee

Sending Smiles


Good Morning! I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. We had just gotten back from a beach trip on Wednesday last week, so we weren't ready to "party" again.

I'm here this morning posting my second card as the Guest Designer for the month of September over at  CASColours & Sketches #387. I had just received my Simmon Says Card Kit and was anxious to use it and thought it would be perfect to use with the Sketch. The stamp set is just so appropriate for the time we are in and beyond. I paired the die-cut sentiment, paper, and the sequins that came with the kit.

It was a fairly simple card using the CAS & S  sketch.

Products Used
SSS Stamp Just Miss You

SSS Stamp Sending Smile die set

SSS Stamp Smiles sequin pack

SSS 100lb. Peacock cardstock

SU Very Vanilla

Have a wonderful new week and Stay healthy and Safe!

Blessings, Bernie Bee
