Be Mine..

I am a little behind in posting this card ;). 

I started this card with the hearts, I had this little stack of them and then tried to figure out what I was going to do. They started out stacked up on top of one another and I was going to put foam tape between the layers to add dimension. As I was reaching for supplies I bumped them and they slid to almost what they are now and I like the effect.

I cut simple layers for the background and popped up the top panel, I  stamped the sentiment in black and popped it up as well.


Supplies: White cardstock, Designer Paper - Authentique, Clearly Besotted - Many mini messages, Memory Box - Classic Stitched Hearts.

Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #278

Good Morning - we have a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge, Debbie is our hostess and her challenge is to Create a Christmas card using the inspiration photo.


I love inspiration photo challenges, there are so many options to choose from and you really get to see what other pull from the photo.



Colour, ornaments and greenery grabbed my attention. I love easy designs and that is what I used here. I pulled out some cross stitch frames and added a little detail to some edges. 

This paper pack had some fun sentiment panels in the back so I grabbed this one for its fun glitter. The sentiment panel is popped up with foam tape.


Supplies: White and kraft cardstock, Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye, Lawn Fawn - die cut.

Stop by the Merry Monday blog to take a look at all the cards created by the design team.

Cheers,
Nina

Tuesday Morning Sketches #440

A quick second post today, I was playing along with Tuesday Morning Sketches. My sister Barb and SIL Judy were all chatting online as we indulged in some crafting time together.

For the decorative piece at the top, I used dots that looks like water droplets.
