I found this lovely DP hidden in my stash; I went
with a grey and white theme. I love this simple sketch, I did flip it though. I
used a sparkly grey ribbon to add a touch of jazz and popped up the sentiment with
some foam tape and finished with some grey pearls.
Supplies: White and gray card stock, Designer Paper

I had a little bit of craft time this evening and decided to play along with The Card Concept - Use Floral Theme.
I found this pretty doily DP in my stash that is
double-sided. I used one side for the main panel then used the back side for my
flowers. I inked all edgesand finished
with some pearls. I think this would fit under the Shabby Chic section.
Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper – Pink Paislee,
Papertrey Ink – Birthday Wishes, Memory Box die – Petal Party, pearls.
Happy Monday everyone, it is time for a new Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, this week we are asking you to Create a Christmas card using Aqua, Silver and White.
This is definitely a CAS card, I let the Designer Paper do all the work. I did add a layer of Aqua card stock to both the main panel and the sentiment. The sentiment is popped up with foam tape and finished with silver sequins.
Good…early afternoon? I am not sure where my morning has gone.
It is snowing like crazy here today and has been since the wee hrs of the
morning. It is only sticking to the greenery though and I am ok with that and I
was able take a walk in a little smidge of winter this morning.
Now I am snuggled down with my craft supplies and will see
what challenges I can play along with. My first one is for the current TuesdayMorning Sketches, and I think I am right
down to the wire.
I love the layers, I heat embossed the flowers on vellum
then fussy cut them. I felt the lower half of the card look empty so I put my
sentiment off kilter then added the pearls.
Supplies: Cream, vellum and brown cardstock, Designer Paper –
Fancy Pants, The Stamps ofLife –
multiple sets, pearls.
I have been itching to use this DP, the holly is embossed and glossy and so pretty. The bottom is from the same paper pack as it the shaped center section. I popped up the sentiment with some foam tape and added a little twine and a button made with circle punches.
Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper –
Kaiser Craft, Papertrey – Holiday Wishes, twine, circle punch.
I used a die cut for a series of hearts and stars in black cardstock;
I backed it with gold paper. I cut the sentiment from the same paper with my Silhouette then finished with gold twine. I popped the whole thing up with foam tape and added
a cream card base.
I apologize for the photo, I could not get a good shot with all the gold glimmering back at the camera.
Supplies: Cream, black and gold card stock, Memory Box –
Hearts and Stars, Silhouette cut file.
I love all the layers on this sketch, I felt my base layer
was a little too dark so I popped all layers with foam tape to draw out the
lighter colours. I layered the lace and added random cream and brown pearls.
Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper-Basic
Grey, Denami Design – Happy Birthday, pearls, lace. Cheers,
It is family day here in BC, and I am getting a chance to
craft with my sister Barb and my SIL Judy. This card is for the current Cas(E) this Sketch.
I turned the sketch upside down, then used a square punch to
create a square center panel. I used a round die cut from the 6x6 paper pad I was using and popped it all up with foam tape. I added
some twine and raised sentiment to finish.
I used lots of layers for this card, in all honesty I had no clue what I was making :). I walked away from it for a day or so, added another layer and put it aside again. Then is all just came together, I made the little reindeer in layers too and fussy cut him 3 times so that layer are at different levels then popped them all up with foam tape.
Supplies: White and brown card stock, Designer Paper –
Doodlebug, The Alleyway Stamps - No Peeking, Momenta - Merry Little, twine.
I took a little
break from card making this weekend to try a different craft. I was wandering
the rows of Michaels on Saturday, which is never good. I prefer to go when I
can focus on a specific item
or items to buy then I don’t end up buying something I don't need, I get in and I get out.Not this time though and I came home with a
loom and a ball of yarn of all things and I got it in my head to make myself a
blanket for the couch.
I found the
instruction booklet that came with the loom a little sparse, my first try
resulted in a nice start for most of first foot with the exception to
the edges that seems really tight and starting to curl. So I unraveled it
and looked for some better instructions and I found this young lady on YouTube and
I have a good second try on the go. You can see her tutorial HERE.
I went with a CAS card for this challenge, I used my Slice to cut out the stocking of two different of DP from one of my 6x6 paper pad. I popped up the whole stocking at different areas to give it a 3D look. I layered a matching strip of paper to run in behind then finished with an embossed sentiment.
Supplies: Cream and brown
card stock, Designer Paper-KaiserCraft, Sentiment.
