Horseshoe thanks

Another short post today. I love this rustic feminine paper from Brutus Monroe. 

The card, for the most part, was very quick to create but I fussed about where to put all the pieces for way too long.

I die cut the panel with a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle and added a layer of brown cardstock. I die cut the sentiment twice, once from brown cardstock and a second time from patterned paper then interchange letters.

I stamped the horseshoes then used a blend of distress inks and silver spritz to age them. The sentiment and horseshoes are popped up with foam tape.

Supplies: White and brown cardstock, patterned paper - Brutus Monroe, My Favorite Things - Wild Wild West, Avery Elle - Holiday Fill in the Blank Die, Simon Says Stamp - Stitched Rectangle.

Celebrating Father's Day

I am just a little behind with this post, at least I still managed to post it in June. This was an easy card to put together, this designer paper is a perfect masculine design. 

I used the flip side for the thin strip, the sentiment is heat embossed and popped up with foam tape. I finished with some Nuvo drops.

Supplies: White and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - KaiserCraft, Clearly Besotted - Minature Type, Nuvo Drops.

Keeping Christmas - June 2019

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

I have a quick and easy card for this post. I layered the panel with black cardstock, with a white card base. The designer paper is double sided so I cut the panel then cut it offset and flipped the right side. I added foam tape to the left panel to add dimension.

I added a matt to the sentiment panel then finished with some black half pearls. 

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Designer Paper - Authenrique, Penny Black - Believe, half pearls.

Hello with a hint of gold

I spend the day at a crop yesterday, it was a wonderfully crafty day. It was so great to take some quality time to play with some paper and glue.

I love this paper and it does all the work for you. It has pretty flowers, butterflies and a hint of white brick in the background.  I used a stitched die cut to create a focal point panel. I then used brown cardstock to create a matt layer in behind. I then adhered the whole thing to a kraft base.

I used my finger to add little bits of gold Cosmic Shimmer watercolour. I had this cute little hello die in an envelope so I added some colour with distress inks and brushed the edges with gold. I finished with gold sequins. 

Supplies: Kraft and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Kaiser Craft, Hello - Unknown, sequins.

YNS, Fun Friday Challenge #115

Good Morning,

I am playing along with Your Next Stamp's Fun Friday Challenge for today's post.

This was a pretty smooth card to put together. I pulled out some watercolour paper and used Distress inks to create a little coffee brew ombre panel. I then used the Circle Panel die, I added a dark brown panel of cardstock in behind.

I added some beans along the sentiment section of the top panel with a stencil then die cut the coffee die sentiment three times for dimension. I finished with a few half pearls.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Your Next Die - Circle Panel and Fancy Coffee, Honey Bee - Coffee Lovers Background stencil, pearls.
