Two New Cards

Hello all, so I have two new cards to share with you today. Let’s jump right into it.

Blue Hello

Blue Happy Birthday To You

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!

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! :]

And…here is my card. I like this one a lot better than my 1st attempt at this challenge, enjoy! :]

10 Minute Craft Dash

So yesterday I decided to attempt my first ever 10 Minute Craft Dash (what the heck was I thinking!?) The colors were just too beautiful to pass up though, and I figured I might as well give it a shot…

I think this is a great challenge, especially because sometimes you’ll need to whip up a card for someone in about 10 minutes, you don’t always have time to putz around.

Anyways, here is my card…

The colors just look like a baby card to me. I have to be honest, I’m not too proud of this card but I just keep reminding myself it was my first attempt at a 10 minute craft dash and to not be too hard on myself. I kept it (obviously) very simple. The card stock is all just scraps I had laying around (oddly enough they were right by each other..what a coincidence!) It is probably hard to tell from the photo but the center panel is navy, it’s a fairly dark navy but navy none the less. I heat embossed the sentiment ‘hey diddle diddle someone new someone little.’ on the light blue card stock from an adorable stamp set that I bought at my local Michael’s (I can’t seem to find the packaging at the moment) and did the same with the cute little onesie on the pink card stock (the onesie is from a different stamp set and I’m afraid I can’t find the packaging to give you a name for that either…talk about disorganization!) Finished it off with some pink and blue twine (I’m pretty sure it is Doodlebug Twine) and that is that! It took me 8:22.6 minutes to put this card together. I think in the future I’ll just try and slow down and take my time a bit more, I might have better results.

I wanted to post this last night but I finally got my act together and talked myself into being somewhat productive. So I went down to my car to go grocery shopping (shepherd’s pie for dinner last night) and my car wouldn’t start. (Doofus me left the light on and killed the battery >.<) Luckily my boyfriend was almost home and he came to the rescue. But, by the time we got my car going and got home from the store and I cooked dinner it was pretty much bedtime.

But anyways, hope you all enjoyed my pitiful attempt at the 10 minute craft dash challenge (I’m sure it made you chuckle) and I’ll be back later today with some more challenges. I’ve found so many great blogs! 😀

SSS Challenge 1

Hey there! Today I decided to attempt my first Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

This week is April showers and/or Spring flowers showcasing Hero Arts.

I decided to go with flowers because I’ve just been loving the new-to-me American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapalitan 6×6 paper pad that I was lucky enough to find on sale a few weeks ago at Target. I used the sentiment ‘thinking of you’ from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings stamp set and white heat embossed it on kraft card stock. All patterned paper is from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapalitan 6×6 paper pad that I mentioned before. To make the paper bow I used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Dainty Bow die and for the scalloped border I used the Fiskars Scalloped Edge Border Punch

I haven’t quite had time yet to sit down and look into learning Inlinkz so I can add all of my supplies yet but once I am able to do that I will update this post (if I can figure out how)

Anyways, thanks for stopping by! I had a blast making this card! :]
