Long Tall Sally

Good Morning!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at Power Poppy, Stretch Yourself, (make a long card and use something new) and Simon Says Work It WednesdayUse Something New and Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!


I made this card VERY long, it measures 4.25 x 9.00 inches.....yikes!  Then of course I got out my Envelope Punch Board and it doesn't make envies this large, so I made one by hand....Oh The Horror!  lol  I used the beautiful Power Poppy stamp set, Short Stacks. I just love the images and sentiments in this perfect little set!  Images colored with Copic Markers.  Designer paper by Nicole, Floral.
My NEW items are these gorgeous dies, Looped Heart Border by Impression Obsession and the Fanciful Flourish by Cheery Lynn.  Aren't they FABULOUS???  Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25 die also used.  2 color coordinating Enamel Dots for accents.  White Galaxy Marker used on the water pitcher and Wink Of Stella Clear used on the Cupcake, such a subtle sparkle and shine.

LOVE this stamp.
Thanks so much for coming playing today, must, will work for stamps!  lol


  1. You have far to much talent and I demand you share! LOVE your card my friend! The coloring is so good!!!

  2. Oh, my goodness, what a beautiful way to stretch that card! I do so love your new dies. I got out my envelope punch board for this challenge, too, and found the same problem. So I made my card 8". Sheesh! You used one of my favorite sets. Thanks for playing along with us in our Stretch Yourself Challenge, Donna!

    1. You're a smarter crafter than I lol Next time I will chop of an inch. :)

  3. Yes, they are fabulous, but i love what you have done with them. We should make more long tall cards. The swirling background along with the flourishes and the heart border as too sweet. Nancy is right, you have too much talent and I love it.

  4. I love it and good luck making an envelope for it. I might have trouble finding a piece of paper big enough to make one. But the card is magnificent and gorgeous! Lovely colors.

  5. This is gorgeous! beautiful, sweet, warm, happy....I can't decide which word best describes it so I said them all. Oh, and I LOVE those dies.

  6. Hello Donna: I adore this card, your coloring of this sweet image from Short Stacks is amazing, I love that heart border and the fancy flourishes, now my list from Cherry Lynn is getting longer.
    Thank you for sharing.
