I have another card to share with you today! I love the set Raining Flowers and even though it is retired, I wanted to make a card with it =) Of course, I started with kraft cardstock as my base and then embossed another layer with the large circle embossing folder. I fussy cut the flower to popped the pieces up with Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the retired set Apple Blossoms. Thanks for stopping by!
Well, this is my last card as a guest designer for the 4 Crafty Chicks. While I am sad to see this end, I have really enjoyed participating in the challenges. The challenge for this week was to create a spring card so flowers always remind me of spring. I started with a base layer of Crumb Cake and stamped the Dictionary background stamp in Crumb Cake. Next, I stamped the flower from the set Simple Stems and added a Melon Mambo candy stop to the flower. The sentiment comes from the retired set Apple Blossoms. Next, I added a small piece of Basic Gray cardstock and tucked a bit of Melon Mambo Scalloped ribbon underneath that. Next, a piece of Old Olive DSP was added and then finally a button tied with some Baker’s Twine.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to play along with the “spring card” challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks this week. I would also like to say thank you to the Designed Team for choosing me as a Guest Designer for the month of March!
So as I promised in a couple posts ago, I would share some big news with you. So I am happy to announce that I have been selected as a guest designer for the 4 Crafty Chicks blog! I am really excited to have this opportunity so keep an eye out for my cards during the month of March!
The current challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks is to use a bow so I created a card featuring a bow. I started out with a base of Basic Gray and added some retired Pool Party DSP. I stamped the dahlia from the set Regarding Dahlia in Summer Starfruit and added a satin ribbon bow. Be sure to play along with the challenge this week! Thanks for stopping by!
Tonight I created a card for the sketch as CAS(E) this Sketch. I started out with a base layer of Pool Party, my favorite color and then on a layer of whisper white, I stamped the circles from the set Apple Blossoms (retired) in Crumb Cake. I punched two flowers with the 5-Petal Flower punch out of Crumb Cake and then sponged with a bit of Crumb Cake ink around the edges. I added a Pool Party button from Sale-A-Bration to the middle and tied a bit of twine in the middle. A bit of Pool Party ribbon from Sale-A-Bration and the sentiment from the set Apple Blossoms finished off the card. Thanks for stopping by!
Today I created a card for the Fab Friday challenge. I started out with a base of Pool Party cardstock and added a layer of Basic Gray that I embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder. I then used the Labels Collection Framelits and stamped the flower image from the set World Treasures. The sentiment “Happy thoughts make happy days” comes from the set Apple Blossoms. I stamped that in Basic Gray on a flagged piece of Crumb Cake. Thanks for stopping by!
Wow, there are a lot of great challenges out there this week. I really hope I get time to play along with all the ones I liked. Over at the Pals Paper Arts, they have an awesome color combination, Melon Mambo, Basic Gray & Basic Black. I pulled out my Mixed Bunch stamp set and stamped the flowers in Basic Gray. The sentiment comes from the set Apple Blossoms. I added a bit of retired satin ribbon to finish off the card. Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you are having a good weekend. Today I have a card for the sketch over at Retro Sketches. The base of my card is Old Olive and then I added another piece of Old Olive that I ran through the Big Shot using the Striped embossing folder. I then cut the Pool Party shape from the Apothecary Arts framelits set as well as the Calypso Coral piece. I added a In Color brad and used the Decorative Label punch. The sentiment came from a retired set Apple Blossoms. I added some Pool Party seam binding and a bit of sheer ribbon that came from the Sale-a-bration catalog. I loved this sketch, it was just so cute and help me think outside the box! Thanks for looking!
This card was created for my Dad so I kept the colors neutral by using Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Old Olive. The sentiment comes from the set Word Play and the circles stamp comes from the retired set Apple Blossoms. I finished the card off with a piece of ribbon!
