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! :]

10 Minute Craft Dash & SSS Challenge

I decided to play along at 10 Minute Craft Dash The colors are just GORGEOUS! ❤ They make me so happy and smiley! :]

I am also playing along over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog and this week the challenge is Happy Mail!

I did the best I could with the supplies I have on hand. As I mentioned in a previous post I’m staying at my boyfriend’s house for a month before we move into the new apartment and a lot of my crafting supplies are in storage…I have JUST ENOUGH to get by 😛 haha

I decided to use a craft card base and Studio Calico’s Sundrifter 6×6 paper pad. Luckily the colors used in this collection are very close to those of this challenge. In this paper pad they have a sheet that has some cute little sayings on them and I thought this square that reads ‘You are lovely’ was just perfect! I used a fiskars border punch to create the scalloped edge on the pink/coral piece of paper and then cut it in half. I then white heat embossed those tiny adorable hearts from Simon Says Stamp Best Mom Ever stamp set. Popped the greeting up on some dimensional adhesive, rounded the top right hand corner and added some dash lines along the outside of the card base and that was it! I was able to finish just in time! :]
