Scrap 'n Stamp Challenge - Love in the Air

Good evening.. My goodness what a day, I was so busy at work today I am sure I looked like an owl most of the day -  head spinning and wide-eyed.. and I thought it was Thursday which made me spin faster J. I don’t remember if I have ever been happy for it to actually be a Wednesday rather than a Thursday at work…. Ever.

Anyway.. enough of that nonsense ;) I am taking it down to the wire to play along with the Scrap 'n Stamp January Challenge.

My card is pretty darn simple. I used a couple of pages from an Authentique 6x6 paper pack, I added a layer of black cardstock to both panels. The sentiment panel is popped up with foam tape and I an itty bitty little flag sentiment add-on. I finished by popping up a couple of hearts covered in Nuvo drops.. Voila a Valentine's Day card for my hunny.

Supplies: Cream and black cardstock, Designer Paper - Authentique, Simons Says Stamp - Tiny Words, Nuvo Drops.

Happy Happy Birthday

Wishing you a happy happy anything on this fabulous Tuesday.. well I hope this will be a fabulous Tuesday but this is scheduled to post at 5am to lets cross our fingers ;).

I am in love with this Boho Flowers stamp set from Gina K Designs.

I used both sides of a DCWV for the background panel of this card. I left a small blank space between the panels. I layered the sentiment panel and popped it up with foam tape.

The flowers and leaves are heat embossed and the flower is layered with foam tape, I finished the card with some little gems.

Supplies: White and navy cardstock, Designer Paper - DCWV, Papertry Ink - Birthday Bash, Gina K Designers - Boho Flowers.

A little Birthday Wish

Birthday wishes on a Sunday. I have a quick crafty post this morning.

I wanted to try something a little different for this layout, I love the foliage on this double-sided DP. I layered the panels with a dark green cardstock and left a space down the diagonal centre. The sentiment panel is popped up with foam tape to finish.

Supplies: Cream and green cardstock, Designer Paper - Jen Hadfield, MTF - Birthday Greetings.

Birthday Wishes

Happy Saturday - I have a really quick post today. I am excited to be headed for a crop. Wish me luck with some crafty karma as I have not been feeling overly creative lately and I am hoping to be inspired.

This is a pretty simple layout, I used a couple pieces from a 6x6 paper pad then added a pretty grey layer to added a small frame. I used the same grey cardstock to heat emboss a sentiment in white.

I finished with some light grey half pearls.

Supplies: White and Grey cardstock, Designer Paper - Fancy Pants, DRS Designers - Birthday Wishes, MTF - Stitched Fishtail Sentiment.

Keeping Christmas - January 2019

Keeping Christmas - Blessed Christmas

Welcome back for the January edition of the Keeping Christmas Series.

Its been a little while since I posted, but I am excited about this card for the Keeping Christmas blog hop.

I made this card with a masculine feel. Using a layer of brown cardstock to frame the Designer Paper. The green plaid is a great backdrop for the focal element panel.

I added a woodgrain texture to the kraft cardstock and layered it with brown cardstock, This panel has a layer of foam tape to pop it up.

I stamped and die cut the buck and sentiment, I then added a layer of foam tape to the sentiment. The card is finished with some matt brown dots.

Supplies: White, brown and kraft cardstock, Designer Paper - PhotoPlay, Simon Says Stamp - Magical Christmas, dots.

Be sure to stop to see all the hop team member's creations.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #485

Happy New Year.. I know... I had planned to post much sooner in the newly minted 2019 but life got in the way.

I had a few crafty misstarts over the last month too and creativity fizzled. My sister and I did a little Facetime creativity session this week though and it was fabulous.

I am playing along with the current Tuesday Morning Sketches, once upon a time, I was a member of this lovely Design Team. Sadly one of the ladies, Jesse, I had designed with has passed away.. see more on the TMS Blog.

I love the layers, this card is for my son as he turns 25 today. I added a layer of black cardstock to each panel. The main sentiment is popped up with foam tape and I heat embossed Happy Birthday in white on black cardstock. I finished with black Nuvo Drops.

Supplies: White and Black cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, Simon Says Stamp - Tiny Words, Penny Black - Christmas Cheer, Nuvo drops.

I have a few unposted cards lying around and I hope to get them posted soon.
