Gettin’ inky!

Hi there! Just thought I’d share a few cards with you. I’ve been busy packing (3 whole boxes finished…woohoo!)

 

This first card I thought it would be really pretty to blend together Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn (are these the right names? I’m not in my crafting room at the moment) And then I saw this beautiful white ribbon laying out on my desk and thought it would make such a pretty contrast to the background, so I wrapped it around the card front and tied it in a bow. I then heat embossed the sentiment ‘Happy Anniversary’ from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings stamp set. (It’s been sitting out on my desk and it really does have perfect sentiments/fonts) and that was that!

This 2nd card is just so bright and cheerful. I thought it would be lovely paired with this beautiful floral paper from American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6×6 paper pad (I’ve been using this paper pad A LOT lately) which I cut into a banner shape, It may be hard to tell from the photo but it had the same shades of yellow, pink and orange. It also has bits of a very light baby blue that goes perfectly with the sentiment ‘hi’ that I used foam Thickers for. I just topped it off with a few small white pearls and called it good! :]

And, here is just a fun little card I made for my boyfriend. The inside reads ‘I love you’

The story behind this card is I had actually bought this stamp set from Lawn Fawn (again, I’m not in my craft room, so please correct me if I’m wrong) to make cards for my boyfriend, we both LOVE breakfast! Well the other morning we were both too lazy to cook breakfast before he had to leave for work so I made him this cute little card in lieu of a real breakfast. :]

Hope you enjoyed! Have a great day!!

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! :]
