Paper Morsels

Paper Crafts and Sweet Morsels from life.



Wow…look at all these cobwebs around here!  I wish I could say it was because Halloween is coming – but really, I’ve just been posting my cards more on Instagram lately.  I tend to make more cards in the colder months – when I’m stuck inside – so card season is coming up here really quickly!! 🙂

I made this card for our niece – her 12th birthday is today!  She recently got to experience the joy of reading the Harry Potter books…so I just couldn’t resist buying this digi from Bugaboo Stamps!  I bought another of the set – and there are so many others that I just love!!



Products used:

  • Digi Stamp: – “Har Repotter The Gentle One”
  • Markers:  Copic
  • Cardstock – Club Scrap, Neenah
  • Dies:  Nestabilities Curved Rectangles, DIEnamics Dimensional Banners

Lawn Fawn Trees of Love

I just made a set of different themed tree cards from the Lawn Fawn set called “Sweater Weather” that I got for Christmas.  I was inspired by Lawn Fawn’s design team member Lynette Kaufman, who made one for each season.  Her cards are so well done! .  I just made mine all Love cards so I can send them to Operation Write Home.

Tiddly Inks Christmas Cards

I had some fun making some Christmas cards this year with a few cute Tiddly Inks images. They are so fun to color and I had a good time trying out different skin and hair color combinations.   I never get to make as many handmade cards for Christmas as I’d like to, but I got a few out this year.  I didn’t want to post them til they made it to their destinations!  I always think I’ll start early…I made these in November…maybe next year I should do “Christmas in July” card making!  I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!

Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party

Happy Independence Day Weekend!  I’ve been spending some much needed time in my craft room, making a few cards for the Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party.  Below are some of the cards I’ve made for a few of the challenges.

Challenge #1:  Use an OWH sketch to make “his and hers” cards.

I used sketch number 94 as my inspiration:

Sketch 94


 Challenge 2:  Create a Thank You Card

There was an extra note to use spray inks, but I do not have any, so I used distress inks to make the background of this card.

  I love the vibrant colors!  I used the Simon Says Stamp Bold Flowers stencil and the Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks die.


Challenge 3:  Paper Piecing for Kids

I’d been wanting to try this for awhile!  I used an OWH tutorial as my inspiration.

These stamps are from the OWH Hero Arts Missing You set!


Challenge 4:  Red, White and Blue Birthday Card

These are Lawn Fawn stamps!  So cute!!


Challenge 7:  Things with Wings

This card used another image from the OWH Hero Arts Missing You set.


Challenge 9:  Masculine with Vintage Image

Here’s a thank you card that fits the bill.  The stamp is from Club Scrap.


Challenge 11:  Transportation


Challenge 12:  Red, White and Blue Christmas

This is a Bugaboo digi called AKVBoyWinter.


Challenge 16: Critter Love

Oh, I love how this one turned out!  Another great Lawn Fawn set – Love You S’more.

I have to thank Lawn Fawn’s own Kelly Marie Alvarez for the chance to CASE this one!
