So I have a fun card today! I found an old card inspiration book called Get Real Greetings. I loved this book because it had some sassy sentiments in it. It’s pretty old (2005) and so the designs are a bit dated, but I totally wanted to use it with some newer stamps and such.
For today’s card I used Sophia.:) I colored her with my copics and used some paper from the Stampin Up Print Poetry Designer Paper. I’ve had it for a bit but I don’t know that I’ve ever used it before now!
I added some rick rack from Michaels and then a few sequins & dots from my stash. The sentiment is from the book and I just wrote it out on the computer. I hope you like it!
This sketch is pretty layer heavy which for me is great because I love layers.
I have a big box of loose papers, some that are mine, and some that I got from swaps and such. I really wanted to start getting this box down, so I used some papers for this challenge. I don’t know where they are from as I think I got them in a swap.
I made two cards, basically the same but with a slight variation. I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along!
OK here is another card for World Card Making Day. I am using a free digi image from Craftin Desert Divas. I used up a lot of scraps in my ‘autumn/fall’ folder…again I don’t know where these come from. I just pick these up and throw them into the bag..LOL
So I get the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin’ Up. I’m not 100% sold on it yet (it’s been since September) but can’t quite bring myself to cancel. It’s been hit and miss for me.
The December kit was a desk calendar kit. Ya, not my thing. So with the help of Pinterest, I found some great card ideas instead!
We have a challenge at Use Your Stuff this week which is Flowers! Perfect. The kit has some great flowery bits that I could use! Take a look!
They actually turned out great! Thank you to those totally creative individuals on Pinterest!
These are the rest of the cards I made with the kit!
All the sequins and butterflies (using the Butterflies thinlits from Stampin’ Up) were from my stash as were some of the sentiments but much of the cards were from the kit.
I think they turned out well! Now, make sure you stop by the Use Your Stuff blog this week and join in our challenge. The DT has created some fabulous projects and a lot of our new team has joined in the fun!
Hi Everyone! I’m back from my annual Cuba vacation, which was perfect of course! Amazing weather and lots of fun!
Time to get busy creating again! Our challenge this week at Use Your Stuff is to create a project using 3 different patterned papers. It’s for challenges like this that I love co-ordinating paper from manufactures, and when they are double sided- even better!
As I was doing a monthly challenge on the Scrap Shotz site as well which was to use a themed paper for a non-themed project, I chose some Valentine’s Day papers from My Mind’s Eye.
I’ve had these papers for years and it was finally nice to get them open and used. I chose them for a new baby layout instead! I hope you like it and I hope you will join us on the blog and play along.
