A note to say hello

Hi everyone. Here is a quick card I put together for the Add a sentiment challenge over at Simon Says Stamp.


It's a bit girlie. Flower and leaf stamps are from Stamplorations. I used pigment inks from Fresh Ink to create the wreath. I did draw a circle using a circle die and a very soft pencil so that I could stay centered and all. Sentiments are from Wplus9.

Fabrrka Decoru is used for the centers of the flowers. I just love this stuff, comes in so many colors, textures and you can get it over at Kat Scrappiness. Link on side bar.

Stay safe and enjoy the big solar eclipse tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.

stay cool


Hello.  Playing in a few challenges today.  Started off using this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.


The sketch looked to me like a jeans pocket, so that is what I went with. Of course, I had to distress it.  I started with some navy white core cardstock from DCWV and then used a small skinny oval die from My favorite Things to cut the holes. Then scratched it up with a sanding block and distressed the edges. Also used a dot border die on the edges and then went over it with a white gel pen.

The felt flowers were from my stash that I got from Ribbons and bow oh my, ages ago. They're kind of teenage girlie so that works for the TGIF Challenge.

The stay cool sentiment stamp is from Studio G. I used a strip of silver glitter washi tape and a small heart die to cut out hearts and added them onto the pocket to add some bling.

That it for now, thanks for stopping in.

Celebrate

Hello. Playing in the sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches today, where they are celebrating #300!  Congrats! Here is what I did with the sketch below.


The "celebrate" die is from Tim Holtz Sizzix thinlits.  I cut it out three times and layered them so that it stands out on the card.  I took the heart stubby from Stamps by Judith and stamped it three time under that to match the designer paper. Stamped three of them on the inside too, but you can only see two in the photo.

The striped designer is from My Favorite Things and the hears are from Ms. Sparkle & Co. Dusted off my oval nestabilities for this one.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping in.
