Play Date Cafe

Hi all! I decided to make a card for The Play Date Cafe color splash. This is my first time playing along and I had so much fun making this card! :]

I masked off the main panel of the card at an angle and used the Flower Medley background stamp by Hero Arts & Basic Grey. I then colored in a few of the flowers using copic markers to give them a nice pop of color. I then used a black marker and my T square ruler to draw a thick black border along the edge and stamped “Always thinking of you” at an angle on the open top portion of the card (I can’t remember the name of the stamp set but it was one I received in a SSS Card Kit I believe.) I adhered some black card stock to the left hand side of the card base and put the stamped/colored image on dimensional adhesive. I’m very happy with the way this card turned out. And I think I will probably end up making some more cards fairly similar to this one in the future. Thanks for stopping by! :]

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!!

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! :]
