Mother's Day Special - 30% off one regular priced item and free gift

Thursday, May 5, 2016
 

In honor of Mother's Day, I will take 30% off the most expensive item you order  - on all orders placed Thursday May 5th thru Mother's Day, Sunday May 8th. (This will be off one regular priced item....not the entire order.) *does not apply to the PSX stamp sale.  Plus,  I will include a free decorated stick pin with each Mother's Day order.

 These pins are beautifully handcrafted by me and I will pick one to send you in appreciation for your business.  These are great to stick in a bow to embellish a special card.

**I will include a free decorated stick pin with 
all orders over $25 placed in the month of May.


Wishing all you women whether a Mother or a Daughter a Blessed
Mother's Day.  May it be a day of relaxing, love and appreciation.

PSX Stamps For Sale (and a few others)

PSX stamps are wood mounted rubber stamps that were sold by the  Personal Stamp Exchange company (PSX) and became popular in the 1980's and 90's. Well known for their intricate illustrations, deep rubber etching and high quality materials, these stamps are collector's items now that the company no longer exists.  Original PSX stamps are considered rare and hard to find collectibles and can fetch high prices wherever they can be found.  I have (5) of these PSX stamps available.   I was going to sell them on Ebay, but thought I would post on my website first in case there are any customers that are collectors and might be looking for any of these.  They are all NEW, mint condition.  Call 574-784-9050 or send e-mail to: myjoansgardens@yahoo.com


I only have (1) of each stamp, so this is a first come basis.

Cards by Card Designer Joan Morrison - Featuring Sue Wilson dies

Tuesday, May 3, 2016
Card Designer Joan Morrison has created some lovely cards using Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson dies.  She has shown how versatile these die sets are and how easily the end product can be so different just by using or not using some of the components in the set.  What I love about all Sue Wilson dies is that even a beginner card maker can make spectacular cards with very little effort or experience, because the dies do all the work.  You can glitz them up with glitter paper, pearls and rhinestones, bows and flowers or create a simple card with no embellishments, add a sentiment and you still have a beautiful and unique card that you will be proud to give to anyone.  If you would like to order any of the products used or if you have any questions about these dies and how to use them, please give me a call at 574-784-9050 or send an e-mail to: myjoansgardens@yahoo.com



 These 3 cards look so different, yet they were all made using
Sue Wilson's CED4104 New York Collection - Madison Square - $25.99

Beautiful glitter paper, the decorative inner cut out used,
flower and Happy Birthday sentiment make this fancy card.
Cheery Lynn B436 Tea Rose Med. and Cheery Lynn
Happy Birthday 
Sentimentally Yours Birthday Verses #2 Stamp Set
 

This card used the solid inner cut out which allowed a stamped
sentiment from the SYBS2C Baroque Sentiments 2 Stamp Set.
Decorative Corners (Cheery Lynn B161 Lace Corners) and 
Cheery Lynn B436 Tea Rose Med.
Sentimentally Yours Birthday Verses #2 Stamp Set
This lovely yet simple card didn't use any of the inner cut outs
and was embellished with Memory Box 98482 Lovely Peony,
but any open cut flower would work.



This card was made with the Sue Wilson CED4308 Frames
and Tags - Tessa - $25.99

http://www.ecstasycrafts.com/assets/images/CED4308r.jpg 


 Wow!  Can't believe these 2 cards were made by the same die set.
CED9205 Belgian Collection - Bruges - $21.99
What a difference it makes either using the outer cutting die 
or just using the inner cutting dies.  Be creative!  Look how
gorgeous the first card is by simply cutting the die out of 
Graphic 45 and layering on a solid peach card panel.
Embellishments were from Marianne Design:
LR0242
LR0192
LR0236
The second card also features CED4412  Mini Gemini - Vela - $14.50




All 3 of these cards were amazingly made by the same die set...
CED9103 Swiss Collection - Zurich - $19.50
What an exquisite variety!!

 http://www.ecstasycrafts.com/assets/images/CED9206r.jpg
Look at the different effect you get by using the die either upright
or sideways and with different backgrounds.  
CED9206 - Belgian Collection - Antwerp - $20.99 



Two totally different results from CED9105 Swiss Collection - Bern -  $19.50
The camera does not do justice to beauty of this card.  The decorative
insert was cut into double sided adhesive and coated with Cosmic Shimmer
Glitter Jewels - Iced Snow - what a dazzling effect!   
Then mounted on a background and embellished with leaves that
feature the Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Flakes in Red Blaze - what
a wonderful fall card.


Thank you Joan, for showing us how one die set can have the 
potential to make so many different style cards.  Sometimes
we need a little help to think outside the box!
