Hi there! We are finally in the new

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!

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!!

Thinking of You & Sympathy

 

 

 

 

This Thinking of you card is very similar to one I posted earlier today, however this one does not have any dimension. I used patterned paper from Studio Calico’s Snippets 6×6 paper pad and stamped the houndstooth/tweed background at an angle masking off the top portion of the card. I used Hero Arts Everyday Sayings stamp set to stamp the sentiment “Thinking of you”

For this sympathy card I wanted to keep it fairly gender neutral. Even though there are flowers on the card I think you could give this to a male or female or a couple since the flowers are cut from plain white card stock. I used the same Hero Arts Everyday Sayings stamp set with the sentiment “Sorry for your loss” I cut two strips of paper from My Mind’s Eye Sunshine 6×6 paper pad that reads as a solid but has a very subtle lattice pattern to it. The bottom portion of the card is embossed with an embossing folder (forgive me…I work in chaos and can’t seem to find it at the moment) and the flowers are from Memory Box Prim Poppy & a Memory Box & Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisies die cuts.
