Happy Sunday!

While having a garage sale, I was able to put together a card for this week's Dynamic Duos challenge.  We were asked to use Primrose Petals and Blushing Bride.


My card:

My card features 5 different stamps sets.  The beautiful flower and leaves are from Stippled Blossoms (stamped with Primrose Petals & Blushing Bride), the frame image is from Post Card (stamped with Chocolate Chip), the stamp is from Fresh Vintage and the emblem is from Kindness Matters.  My card base is Whisper White, followed by Blushing Bride.  I matted the Post Card using some Primrose Petals cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink, and the leaves were stamped with Memento Desert Sand.  For the final touches, I adhered some pearls on the top and bottom of the card, and some Crumb Cake ribbon beneath the flower.

In addition to the Dynamic Duos challenge, I am linking to:

Happy Monday!

I'm popping in very quickly to share a card for this week's Dynamic Duos.  We were asked to use Kraft and Black with the option of Wet Embossing.

My card:

This is definitely a CAS card.  I began with Crumb Cake cardstock, paired with layers of Basic Black and Very Vanilla.  I stamped the image from Technique Tuesday Wildflowers in Memento Basic Black, and adhered the three squares onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from Wetlands Stamp Set with more black ink, and there you have it!

PP163 & The Kraft Journal - Song/Book

Hello Everyone,

I want to share a card for two challenges, the first being The Paper Players.  It's all about creating a CAS project "For the Kids"

The other challenge is The Kraft Journal. We were asked to use a song/book theme to create a project.  I chose the classic book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle.  I remember reading it to my girls when they were little.
My Card:

I started out with Crumb Cake as the case base, followed with layers of Real Red and Whisper White.  The caterpillar was quick and easy to create.  I cut out 8 green circles using the 3/4 circle punch, and 1 red circle using the 1 inch punch.  Using the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge, I made the caterpillar's antennas.  The Crop-A-Dile came in handy to punch out the small white circles for the eyes.  Using a thin green maker, I hand drew the dots for the eyes, nose and the smile.  The ruffled layers on the bottom were created with the MFT Simply Scallop Die.  First, I adhered the red layer, then decided to add some yellow color as well.  Under the caterpillar, I adhered a strip of patterned paper from SU! Print Poetry DSP.  I divided the top and bottom with 1/8 Real Red Taffeta Ribbon.  I stamped the sentiment from IBS Wishes Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I added a few green rhinestones to finish off the card.

Merry Monday #74

Happy Thursday!

I have a card to share for this week's Merry Monday.  We were asked to use the colours Green and White with woodgrain.

My card;

 I began my card with a Whisper White card stock base.  I then added another layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Woodgrain folder and a strip of Lucky Limeade card stock.  I scored the left hand side with my Scor Buddy for a bit of subtle interest.  I stamped the gorgeous chickadee from SU! Beautiful Season on X-Press It Blending Paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink, and colored it with Copic markers and color pencils.  The circles were die-cut from white and brown card stock using the Classic Circle Spellbinders.  I positioned the image with foam tape, then took some Baker's Twine Early Espresso and tucked it behind the card stock to assimilate it"s hanging from the bow.  The sentiment is from Just Rite's Noel Christmas Ornaments, and was stamped Memento Tuxedo Black.

I've also entered this card over at Paper Issues: Put Some Twine On It! and 'X' Marks the Sport: The Twinery Challenge.

Merry Monday #73

Hello everyone,

I have a card to share for this week's Merry Monday.  We were asked to create a Christmas card using Red, Green and Kraft, with a choice of Ribbon, Twine or Burlap.  I incorporated both Ribbon and Burlap.

My card:

I began with Crumb Cake, followed by Real Red and Authentique Collection: Joyous patterned paper.  The ovals were die-cut from Whisper White and Real Red card stock using the classic oval spellbinders.  I stamped the sentiment from SU! Snow Swirled in Tuxedo Black ink, and added some curls using SU! Priceless Stamp Set.  I then took some burlap, die-cut it with the largest die using the Labels 18 and adhered it behind the sentiment.  A strip of red taffeta ribbon was added on the right hand side of the card, along with a double bow.  To add balance to the card, I used Spellbinders Shapabilities Layered Poinsettia die to create a small poinsettia. 

I'm linking up at Link Up Tuesday.

The Kraft Journal #136: Clean and Simple

Happy Monday!

It was great to have a day off from work and do some scrapbooking.  I am sharing a card for this week's The Kraft Journal.  It's all about clean and simple. 

My card:

For my card, I chose to use Inspired by Stamping Small Fancy Labels 18 Stamp Set.  I began with Kraft cardstock.  The layers are 2 Whisper White cardstock papers.  The first layer, on the bottom right hand corner, I simply stamped the image in SU! Marina Mist ink.  On the second layer, I embossed 3/8 inch of the cardstock using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Then, using the Spellbinder Label Eighteen, I superimposed the image around the die cut to give it dimension.  To add some color, I placed a small flower using the Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set.  To finish off my card, a small bow was adhered on the right hand side.    

I'm also linking it up at Word Art Wednesday and Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery.

Happy Sunday!

I'm here to share a card for this week's Dynamic Duos.  We were asked to use Plum, and the 2nd color is our choise.  I picked Baja Breeze.  I also incorporated the neutral colors White and Kraft.

My card:

My card begins with Crumb Cake card base, followed by Whisper White.  I embossed Perfect Plum (looks much darker in the picture) and Crumb Cake cardstock with Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I took pretty paper from SU! Pocketful of Posies and matted it with Whisper White cardstock, and adhered on the left side of the card.  The circles were die cut with the Standard Circles Spellbinders and Lacy Circles Spellbinders.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Cupcake Wishes, and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I finished it off by wrapping Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon across and adding a double bow to the left hand side.
