hang in there...
Hello! Got a clean and simple card to share today. When I made this card I was only planning to post it to the Color Hues challenge, but then when I checked this morning the new Paper Players challenge is clean and simple spring! My card fits perfectly. I love it when that happens! Take a look.

Simon Says Stamp Just For You Release!
(To see my Birch Press Design post, please click here.)
Happy Thursday everyone! The new Simon Says Stamp Just for You release is now available! Simon was so kind and sent me the lovely stamp set called Herb Labels. I have created two cards using this fun set and I have a few other ideas percolating in my little brain, lol! Let's have a look at my cards.
Birch Press Design Post

a little something
Hello! Popping in with a quick share of a card that I made for two challenges that I don't often find myself having the time to participate in: Paper Players and Just Us Girls. The Paper Players challenge this week is a color challenge. The combo is another that just says spring so I was inspired to get a card made before the challenge ended. I paired the colors up with the JUGs challenge to create a rainbow themed card. Take a look at what I came up with.

Hello! Hope your week is going well. It is very cold here in the PNW and it doesn't seem like spring is coming. In fact, this morning I was outside and thought to myself that it felt more like December than March! Hoping it starts to warm up soon. Today's card is all about pretty spring colors and a dragonfly. Take a look.
When I saw the color combo at Color Throwdown I knew I was not going to miss the opportunity to make a card with it. It is just so bright and fresh. I wasn't so sure, however, that I was going to make a card using the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. Sketches with lots of things in the center terrify me, lol. But I decided to give myself the challenge of coming up with something. I think things turned out pretty well. All products are from the Greetery, except for the ink which is from Pinkfresh Studio. Toward the end of last year the Greetery had a sale. There was one thing in particular that I wanted, but I didn't want to do an order by myself. Then a friend contacted me about doing an order together and so I had her get me what I wanted: Jumbo Curiosity: Dragonfly stencil and die set. I thought that was the only Jumbo Curiosity stencil and die set that I owned. As I was looking through my Greetery products I discovered that I also own Jumbo Curiosity: Butterfly! Had no idea! Anywhoo... I die cut the dragonfly from white cardstock, used some low tack tape on the back to keep them in place and stenciled them with the CTD colors. Then I had to figure out the other shapes I was going to use. At first I didn't want to use circles, but in the end they looked the best with the dragonfly. The circles are from the Pinwheel Party suite of products. I die cut the pinwheels from white cardstock and stenciled with the matching stenciled. The smallest blue pinwheels were stamped with a image from the Pinwheel Party stamp set and then die cut. I arranged everything on a white cardstock panel and then added some Nuvo drops in Morning Dew and Yellow Bird. I wasn't going to add a sentiment, but then decided to add the small hello from the Bittersweet stamp set. Simply stamped in black, trimmed out and popped up.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

a rainbow and flowers...
Hello! Hope all is well in your world. It has been pretty cold here in the PNW (Pacific Northwest), but thankfully little to no snow! Hoping it stays that way. I'm popping in with two cards today. I'm very proud of myself for making two cards because lately I have not felt like making even one card. Sometimes I think I suffer from "too much stuff syndrome" (I made that up!). Because I have too much stuff I get a little paralyzed and can't decide what to do. Do you suffer from this same syndrome? Let me know! Here is my first card for Sunday Stamps:

a birthday card...
Hello! Popping in with a card that I made for my great niece who turned one this past Sunday (February 5th.) I used the colors from Color Hues for the card so I will be posting it there. Take a look at what I made. The door is almost closed on the current Seize the Birthday, but I will post it there, too. I did want to say thank you to the Color Hues team for picking the card I entered in the last challenge for a shout out.

Hey there! Popping in with a card that will be heading to the Altenew January inspiration challenge, as well as the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge. I haven't participated in an Altenew challenge in a very long time for various reasons. But I have decided that this year I will try to participate more so that I can use the Altenew products that I have. For this card I used a new to me 3D embossing folder from Altenew called Sylvan Baroque.
