SSS Challenge…Take a Picture

Hi all! I have a card I created for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week Simon Says…Take a Picture!

And I’m not going to lie, I was so excited! You may not know this about me but I have a slight obsession with cameras (okay, it’s a huge obsession) I have a vintage camera collection that is my pride and joy! :] And I’ve been hoarding some camera related patterned paper for quite some time now (they are just so pretty!)  But, this challenge forced me to use some of it and I’m so happy I did!! :]

I used some grey card stock that I received in one of my monthly card kits as the card base and the patterned paper is from Studio Callico’s Darling Dear collection. I created the tiny polaroid with a 1 inch square punch (I don’t have any square dies or any of those adorable polaroid dies) and my paper trimmer. I then stamped the heart from an adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set that was also apart of a card kit in Hero Arts Red Royal Mid-tone Shadow Ink and die cut the “you” from the SSS You die and stamped “make me smile” from the coordinating stamp set.

I gotta say, I’m very happy with how this turned out, but that’s not a surprise seeing as how it is camera related. :] Thanks for stopping by!!

10 Minute Craft Dash #18

I have been lagging behind on updating my blog with a crap-ton of cards(and yes…it really is a crap-ton of cards to share)

We’ve been busy around here packing up my boyfriend’s things because we’ll be moving into the new place on Monday YAY! I can’t wait! :] But, I figured I’d post my card for the 10 Minute Craft Dash and get that all squared away.

I have to admit, this one was a huge challenge for me, but that’s a good thing! I don’t normally use greens, yellows, or purples (why is that I wonder?….I really don’t know) but I managed to find some card stock on hand that I was able to use, and I’m so happy I did!

I made this card in 9 minutes and 36 seconds, JUST UNDER the radar haha

I used patterned papers from American Crafts & Basic Grey’s Plumeria 6×6 paper pads. Also, I used the largest heart from Unity Stamp Company’s Loads of Love Stamp Set, and Simon Says Stamp’s You stamp set for the sentiment. Originally I had wanted to die cut the heart (not stamp it) but I didn’t have a heart die that was big enough & that’s probably for the best since I just barely made it under the 10 minutes. Anyhow, thanks for stopping by, hopefully I’ll be back soon with a massive upload of new cards! :]

 

Two Baby Cards & a Birthday Shaker Card

 

 

My Baby card stash is fairly low so I figured I’d make some baby cards (a girly one and a boy one) I used the same paper pack for both.

 

For the girl card I used two different pink patterned papers from Kaiser Craft Lullaby Collection 6 1/2 Paper Pad and gave them a scalloped edge with a Fiskars boarder punch. I adhered the more solid pink paper directly onto the card base and popped the polka dot paper piece up onto dimensional adhesive. This paper pad includes some die cuts so I used a tag that reads “A baby has a special way of adding joy in every single day” and attached that through one of the little holes that the border punch created using a small light pink brad (which I received in one of my card kits) I also put some foam adhesive on the back along one side, just to help secure it. Finished off by rounding the outer corners.

For the boy card I used the same patterned paper pack and just cut strips of blue patterned paper, the argyle and thing strips of the striped paper to give it a matted look (a trick I learned from Jennifer McGuire) HOARD THOSE STRIPED PAPERS! 😀 haha everything was adhered flush to the card except for the scalloped sentiment that was also a die cut from the paper pad. The sentiment reads “What are little boys made of? Frogs and snails, and puppy dog tails, that’s what little boys are made of” and it is on some dimensional adhesive.Image

Both of these baby cards were SUPER quick and easy to put together. And I’m very pleased with the result.

 

 

For the birthday shaker card I used patterned paper from Studio Calico’s Snippets Collection. Also some random sequins that my Grammy sent me a while ago (she probably had them just laying around and thought I’d love them) I also put a small wood veneer heart that I received in one of my kits inside. I used the Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments stamp set to stamp the Happy Birthday on some white card stock and gave it a slanted edge. Finished off by rounding all 4 corners and that was it.

As I said in my previous post, I am wicked low on birthday cards in my stash so I have been trying to make as many birthday cards as possible! So, here goes… Since there are quite a few photos I will just write out the supplies I used for each card instead of explaining everything in length.
