Hello Everyone

I am Sapphire and I am new to blogging.  I have just started acquiring products to create beautiful cards with the wonderful Magnolia stamps.  I can not wait to sit down and make my first card as I am a little nervous with coloring with Copic markers.  I am a mother of 2 handsome boy's, Nicholas & Michael, who watch me go from making one creation to another.  My son Nick is attending Le Cordon Bleu Culinary school and my youngest Michael is attending Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont majoring in biology. 

I love to embroider, sew, crochet, and now stamp making and card making.  I have already made two simple cards one with no stamps just embellishments and a sentiment, the other with a stamp; I need work on coloring.  I have watched a couple of tutorials from other blogger's and I hope to get better real soon.  I look forward to posting cards and keeping you abreast of my progress.  

As I am new to this I will try to remember next time to write down all the ingredient's I used to produce this card. 
MS edge puncher, softspoken sentiments, unknown oval cutter, MS butterfly puncher, bling from a bin at Micheal's and ribbon from my stash. I also used Tim Holtz pearl drops.

Thanks for stopping by and I welcome all comments and info on where to see good tutorials!


  1. It's lovely, Sapphire. Colors are striking and embellishments very pretty. The gem flourish is particularly special.
