Hello all, so I have two new cards to share with you today. Let’s jump right into it.
I was on a kick with the Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and stencils. I just couldn’t get enough. Anywho, I thought I’d share these cards. I love the way both of them turned out.
On a very different note, I’ve been sick but was fortunate enough to have a phone interview today that must have went pretty well since I have a face to face interview next Tuesday. I’m super nervous and am really hoping to get this job…so wish me luck!
Hi there! I have 5 cards to share now, that I’ve already taken pictures of and probably about 5 or 6 more cards to share once I get photos taken of them.
So here we go…
Hi there! We are finally in the new place! Which is why I haven’t posted anything for a few days. Still not completely moved in (I have a few big pieces left to bring over, my book cases and china cabinet, and some boxes full of random little odds and ends) but at least we are here and I’ve been very busy unpacking. I still haven’t gotten my crafts set up but luckily I have quite a few cards that I did a while back and haven’t shared yet.
I don’t have the supplies on hand so I can’t write out a full description but I’ll share some photos anyhow.
With Father’s Day coming up I thought I’d share these cards first, I can’t wait to get all of my supplies over to the new place and have a work space again!
Here is a card I created for Addicted to Clean and Simple Challenge #13 Code Word BIRTHDAY!
Which could not have come at a more perfect time because I actually needed to make my nephew a Birthday card.
Hi all, I wanted to play along with this week’s Fusion Card Challenge
I went with Lesley’s Challenge (the pink, orange and yellow flowers) I chose to stick with the gorgeous color combo and went a little outside the box and didn’t actually use any flowers, which I hope is okay!
I inked the main image panel with Distress Inks from Tim Holtz, I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade & Squeezed Lemonade (some of my favorite color combos with the distress inks) and then stamped the image over top of it with Unity Stamp Company’s By A Thread Itty Bitty stamp set. Originally I wanted the sentiment to just be on the white card base, but I had a mishap…alright, not a mishap I’m just goofy and accidentally stamped the sentiment up side down, so I had to change my plans a bit and decided to stamp the sentiment over a piece of patterned paper which I got from My Mind’s Eye Happy Day 6×6 Paper Pad. Not exactly what I had in mind, but I can live with it. The sentiment is adhered directly to the card base and the blended panel is popped up with some dimensional adhesive.
Thanks for stopping by! :]
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!!
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! :]
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.
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.
