This is a great simple sketch! So my first card with this one was this fun little Christmas card.
This time staying with a holiday card, I went with Valentine’s Day.
This one was really easy to put together. I just dug into my Valentine’s box for all the elements. I started with the 3×4 journal card and then I matted it on some cardstock. I had this fun heart paper that I thought would work great and then just a little Valentine’s sentiment from Verve Stamps. Really simple but you could totally layer up this card if you wanted!
Thanks for stopping by and head over to the blog and see the great projects from the DT.
This looks like the Carta Bella collection from yesterday, but I don’t think it all is. Some may be though. I love the gold accents in this one with the sentiment and heart from my stash. I also love the vellum leaves that I added in there. A dainty little card. I hope you like it.
C’mon over to the MTCC blog and play along with us. The rest of the DT have some great projects for you to check out too!
Hi! It is time for our new challenge at Make the Card Challenges! This one is great (they all are right?! )
This week we are going for a simple technique…
Oh this has so many possibilities! For me, I had this embossing folder/die set that I hadn’t used in awhile and so I wanted to focus on that and made a shaker card. The sentiment is from Ink Road Stamps and is a quote from one of my favorite movies of all time – Pride and Prejudice!
I love the red/white/black combo so I added some pink/white/red sequins in my shaker and some glitter red hearts to give it a bit of pop.
I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us at MTCC . The DT has some awesome projects for you to check out and inspire you and you’ll find the link to play along!
It’s the first Sunday of the month so it’s our challenge up at Dragonfly Dreams! This month we are being sponsored by Connie Fong!
I got to use these adorable little piggies and made this fun fold card!
I was using some papers from the American Crafts valentine collections of XOXO and Be My Valentine. I colored the piggies with my copics and then fussy cut them to add to the front panel . The enamel hearts are just from my stash!
Don’t forget to head over to the blog to play along with us and to see the other great creations from the Design Team to inspire you.
I still had a couple of rainbows on my desk that I wanted to use up, so I added them to this card!
I used some Lawn Fawn Rainbow plaid paper to go with and the sentiment I do believe is Stampin Up. I added the hearts and clouds that came with the rainbow set. Another bright and cheery card to send to a friend.
Be sure to head over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you this week with this awesome sketch and be sure to play along!
Cathy Z’s YouTube class tonight was using our exclusive stamp/die set with fun rainbows and clouds. I can’t believe I don’t own a rainbow set already!
My card is a bit of a variation on the one Cathy did but I love how it turned out. I again used some of the paper from the Heidi Swapp paper pack and ran it through a Darice cloud embossing folder. It was fun to cut out the pieces of the rainbow. The hearts came with the set as well which are a lovely little accent.
Our paper pad is Favorite Things and it’s got some wonderful patterns and solids in it. She taught us a great little trick to add dimension to your project by using some folded layers to pop up elements.
It gives it a great 3D look. I also loved all the layers we played with for this card. Such a great way to use up papers in the 6×6 packs, of which I have many as you know! The stamp set is adorable as well! It’s full of rainbows (another project will be coming with this set down the road) and sentiments.
I don’t normally make Valentine’s Day cards…..it’s more of a Hallmark holiday to me than anything else, but I had these few things on my desk that have been sitting there forever and I was resolved to use them….one was this dotted paper from Stampin Up that I’ve had for years, and the other was the brick wall die cut that was given to me in a swap and lastly was this quote from my favorite musical. I wondered how I could bring the three of them together. I love a good scrapping challenge!
I took the dotted paper and inked it with some distress oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral and Aged Mahogany. I added some water sprinkles, just for an extra layer of interest. I then put the brick wall die cut over top of that. Then it was just a matter of adding a couple different hearts from my stash (I love that foil one) and some enamel dots. The sentiment is from the Ink Road’s Subway Art Lover’s Movie Quotes. I love this stamp set! I am a big movie buff and it has some of my favorite lines and I really enjoy trying to fit them into different card styles! As I said, this particular quote is from my all time favorite musical The Phantom of the Opera!!!
Welcome to my blog amidst all this isolation. Expect to see a lot more from me. I’ve been actually scrapping a lot during this quarantine, however, it’s mostly cards to send out to anyone that wants one! Everyone needs a pick me up sometimes and a little happy mail can make a big difference to people. I’ve sent out almost 100 cards in the last 3 weeks and I’m happy to do it.
I’ve had a few people ask me to send cards to their family members or friends that are nurses..so I’ve made some like this one. Goodness knows they deserve it and they have my utmost respect and gratitude for all they do!
I also made this card with the Festive Friday Challenge in mind. They have an Inspo List and you need to pick 3 items off the list for your project.
I chose the red, medical imagery and appreciation sentiment. I really like how this turned out. The DP is from my stash and Doodlebug, the enamel dots are PinkFresh. The image is just from the internet and the sentiment strip is Jillybean Soup.
I challenge you to send a card to a friend or loved one this week. With most of us under quarantine, it’s a thoughtful gesture and you never know how much it could brighten someone’s day.
