"If I take Wings"

I attended a weekend craft retreat this past weekend and designed and created this card using Maymay's "Beacon" stamp set.
I used designer paper I had in my stash and and cut the "waves" using an older punch by Creative Memories. I then embossed the blue wave with the Darice embossing folder "Polka Dot" and sponged the edges with CTMH "Indian Corn Blue" Popped the sailboat and also the white "wave" up with dimensionals. The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped with Black Onyz Versafine. I have found so many uses for this stamp you can see from this other card I created below:

Two Christmas Tags I made today using my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge! This cartridge is so versatile.. I find myself going back to it all the time.  The snowman is one of MayMayMadeIt's called Snow Peeking.

I had a very good "mojo" spell and came up with a few more cards that I think turned out pretty good. The first one is CTMH "Rain or Shine" which I have had fun playing around with. I ran the cardstock through my Cuttlebug and fussy cut the rainbow out Also used my spellbinders dies for the sentiment and the little extra border behind it...popped everything on pop dots and there you have it. I think the twine adds just enough "extra". 

I must admit that this second one I used some DSP that I had in my stash.. but everything else is CTMH. This set called "Kiss It Better" is just what I needed for those Get Well Cards that I never had a good stamp set before.  The hearts and bandaids are sooo cute! I popped those tiny hearts on dimensional tape and also the saying.

Just noticed the Legos in the background of this picture! I'm keeping them in because it just goes to show this is "Grandma's" house... lol
