Recipe for Fun with Therm O Web & Waffle Flower Crafts

It’s been a big day already here at my house. We had a tree company out this morning to remove three big trees from the back yard that had become quite too massive for the space. With sixteen trees planted in an half-acre yard, things were beginning to feel a bit closed in. What’s amazing to me is how gigantic trees could become in ten years, and how anyone could manage to cut them down and haul them away in only half an hour. These days, I can hardly make a simple decision in that amount of time! 😉


Last week, the Therm O Web team had the great fun of joining up with our friends at Waffle Flower Crafts. I shared the first card I made for the swap here already (click here to see that post), and today I’m back with number two. Another chef card from Big Bear & Bird. This time, Bear has whipped up some recipes for summer fun.


I do love that silly old bear! He has been colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the matching dies. Did some paper piecing for his gingham apron and hat. I don’t know about you all, but gingham just screams summer to me. Puts me in mind of a little outdoor picnic or bbq.


I added in die cut floral accents, and arranged my scene onto some stacked die shapes from GinaK Designs. The paper is once again from Simple Stories’ Summer Days collection.


I’ve got more details and step-by-step directions up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all are having lots of summer fun in your neck of the woods!

Good Friends with Therm O Web


Happy Wednesday, Good Friends! Hope your week is going well. I thought perhaps that we had finally hit spring here in my neck of the woods, but she seems to be hiding again. It’s grey and gloomy once again, and I am so ready for real spring to arrive. So I thought I’d pretend a bit today with a bright and cheery spring flower card that I made this week for the Therm O Web blog.


For something a bit different than my norm, I went with an interactive card design made of a pocket and an insert. Love that extra little surprise the recipient will find when they pull on the cloud tab. And the belly band slips off, and is re-usable, too.


There’s something about this Waffle Flower Bear & Bird stamp set that always makes me smile. This time, I gave the bear a snow cone to hold that was fussy cut from my patterned papers, and created a little outdoor picnic scene for these good friends to enjoy.


I put together a matching insert using coordinating papers from the Simple Stories Summer Days kit. A fussy cut cloud added to the top of the card acts as the pull tab. Therm O Web GinaK Designs dies were used to frame the sentiment and the belly band scene. And of course I used some deco foil to accent that cool GinaK Foil-Mates greeting.


I always love a good side view of deco foil to really show off it’s beautiful shine. I used three colors of foil here that were a great match to my papers, and it’s really easy to do. I’ve got a tutorial for that, as well as complete instructions for creating this pocket design, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Beach Hair with Therm O Web

Hi Sweet Friends! Happy Monday!


We have been having the most beautiful weather here. The storms have cleared, leaving nothing but blue skies and gentle breezes. Feels like summer has returned.


Even so, signs of fall are creeping in. The first hint of color is popping out in the trees, and there’s a squirrel burying acorns in my front lawn this morning.   And of course, I have completed switched over to fall inside. Fall crafts….. fall decorations…. I even bought my first pumpkin of the season yesterday. You know me and autumn…it just can’t come soon enough.


Weather like this, though, has me longing for the beach. So perfect time to share some seaside tags I made recently for the Therm O Web blog, featuring dies from the GinaK Designs collection and stamps from our friends at Waffle Flower Crafts.


This is the adorable Bear and Bird stamp set, with paper from Simple Stories’ Summer Days collection. I framed my beach scenes with square dies from GinaK Designs, and gave my bears some cool beach accessories from a super old Stampin’Up stamp set that I haven’t used for years. Bonus points for that! 🙂

I’ve got the complete tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead!

Bear & Bird with Therm O Web and Waffle Flower

waffle-flower-crafts-logo-header

Hi sweet friends! Happy Monday to you once again. I hope you all have had a wonderful week!


Today is the last day of July already, and I am sitting here marveling at how fast the time goes by. Summer is almost over, and with the start of school quickly approaching I am feeling a great sense of change coming over me. Both of my kiddos are heading off to college this year. Pete to finish one last semester to complete his BS in biochemistry. And my Missy Nik will be starting university after a two-year break, with a plan to study life sciences. And all this means big changes for this old mom.


I’ve got two weeks until move-in date, and yes, I am counting down the days already. Nik and I have been having fun picking out her dorm room get-up. Last week we spent four out of five weekdays on campus attending orientation and meetings. My head is swimming with information and data and facts and nerves. So much to process, and such little time left. I know it will go by in the blink of an eye.


Change is a bit scary, but I’m reminding myself that with new things comes new opportunities. I’m so excited to see where the kids go from here, and where I will go, too. As a matter of fact, I am starting out on a new venture right now myself, with a brand new job!
After all, if the kids can learn new things, then I can as well, right?


Sharing these sweet thank you cards that I made for the Therm O Web blog using the adorable  bear & bird stamp set from our friends at Waffle Flower Crafts.
I’ve got the full tutorial to share HERE on the TOW blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! And have a fantastic week!

My card for today features the adorable Sea You Soon stamp and die set, along with the fabulous new Scalloped Stitched Square Dies, in a sweet little nautical friendship design.


I am just smitten with the cute critters from Sea You Soon. These little guys were watercolored and die cut with the matching dies and added to an underwater scene that was pieced from the scalloped square dies. The sentiment from the set was stamped onto a circle die cut from the previously released Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. The paper is from the You & Me collection by Simple Stories.

I’ve been quietly working on my shop goodies for the past couple of months, so I’m pretty much ready to go. But of course there are always lots of last minute things to do. There’s photos to edit, and a shop page to update, and a few final tags to create, like these little foxy friends.

AudreyPettit MCT AutumnWishesTags2
I am a huge fan of Emma’s adorable fall stamps and dies over at My Creative Time, and pulled out one of my favorite older sets for these. This is the sweet Fall Friends set, paired with a woodsy plaid print and a touch of natural kraft, for a warm autumn look.

Happy Fall-o-Ween with My Creative Time

Hello Sweet Friends! Happy Friday!

School is back in session. Mr. Pete is finishing up his first week of his senior year in college today. I just don’t know how time manages to fly by so quickly. But I do know one thing…. even though it’s still a hundred degrees outside, back to school means fall is officially here. In my head, anyway. So today I have a fun fall card to share, made with My Creative Time’s adorable new Gobble Gobble stamp and die set.

AudreyPettit MCT HappyFalloween
I am crazy about the sweet owl in this set, and while I was working on my tags for the hop last week, I couldn’t resist making another card with the little guy. This time, I colored the owl in a natural woodsy yellow and brown color combo to go with my patterned papers, and added a few fall leaves to match.

AudreyPettit MCT HappyFalloween2
More loose Distress ink watercolor, and more paper scraps from my stash. And a petite 3.5×5 card base, for something a bit different from the norm.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have an amazing weekend. And tell me, friends…..

Does it feel like fall in your neck of the woods yet?
