Rustic VW Van

When I saw this stamp I could not resist going for the aged look for all the layers. I found this fabulous die cut from Sweden that makes the panel that gives the edges a look of old paper.

I inked up all the edges and popped the sentiment up with foam tape. I finished with a metal cog.

Festive winter

Winter is not far away and dare I say Christmas will not be far behind. Today for my merry Monday post I am going with a wintery feeling card.

MTF Sketch Challenge #402

Mother Nature flipped the switch from summer to fall pretty quickly and it was a perfect morning to create a card as I listened to the rain outside.

I am playing along with the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge.

I die cut the panels from stitched rectangles then added a layer to brown cardstock to each. I know I have stamp sentiments somewhere in my stash that says Feel Better but I could not seem to find them so I used Word and printed one off. 

I popped up the panels with foam tape then finished with the gold leaves and some half pearls.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Authentique, Little B - Gold Autumn leaves, half pearls, stitched rectangles.

This was a very quick card to put together. I used a sheet from a 6x6 paper pad and added a layer of grey cardstock that I die cut with a stitched rectangle. 

I stamped the sentiment right on the panel then added some gems to finish.

Big Birthday wishes

A big big wonderful shout out to my big sister HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARB. Barb is celebrating a milestone birthday today and I hope the day is over-the-top fabulous. I wish I was celebrating with you sis.

This picture does not do the card justice, I really like the way it turned out. I started with a dark grey layer of cardstock then added a lighter grey layer that I added a pattern too with some distress ink and a stencil. 

I then used a blend of stitched die cuts for the panels, alternating a couple to have foam tape for a 3D effect. I popped up the sentiment then peppered the card with clear dew drops and gems.

Supplies: White and grey cardstock, Designer Paper - My Minds Eye, Penny Black - Smile Today, gems, dew drops.

Have the bestest birthday sis, I hope you get spoiled just like you deserve.
