Here's to you

A quick post this morning. I needed a card for a co-worker who is moving on to bigger better things.

I used stitched rectangles to create the layers using a matt of brown and black cardstock. I heat embossed the mug twice. I added perfect puff for the foam and glossy accents for a sheen to the mug. I used two mugs and put foam tape between the layers.


Supplies: White, brown and black cardstock, Designer Paper - SEI, Two Paper Divas - Here's to you, white Perfect Puff.

Cheers,

Rainbows and unicorns

Rainbows and unicorns are not typically something that I would be drawn to as a go-to for a card. I just happened to get some very bright papers that I decided to give a try.

I used simple layers of pink cardstock to add a frame for the card and used DP for the main panel. 

I stamped the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape and finished with sequins.


Supplies: Pink cardstock, Designer Paper - Doddle Bug, sequins.

Have a great day,

Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #265

Good Morning and welcome to a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. I am your hostess this week and my challenge is Create a Christmas Card with an outdoor winter activity.

I have been so busy lately that my crafting time has been so  I decided to go with a CAS style card. I have so many fun papers that it was easy to find one that did all the work for me.

I created a card base with some turquoise cardstock, I used my stitched die cuts for the outdoor scene the added a simple sentiment and some very light sparkle along the snow edges. I also added a layer of red cardstock to pull some of the colour from the picture.

Supplies: Red and Turquoise cardstock, Designer Paper - Echo Park, Verve -Glad Tidings.

Be sure to visit the Merry Monday blog for tons if inspiration and we would love for you to play along.

Birthday Wishes

I hope everyone survived Halloween festivities, we had a good number of trick or treaters. There seemed to be a never ending amount of fireworks this year and it lasted for hrs and was great entertainment in between candy hunting visitors.

I used stitched die cuts to create three panels, I added a spotted gold layer at the base that shimmers through all the cracks. I added foam tape between the layers to give for a 3D effect. I also popped up the sentiment and finished with sequins.


Supplies: White and black cardstock, Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye, Sentiment - Verve, SSS- stitched Die cuts, sequins.

Hello sweet birthday

I bought some kayaks earlier this fall and yesterday was a stunning day to try them out for their maiden voyage. The lake was so calm and it was sunny and warm for the end of Oct at about 16. The fall colours were so pretty.
