Thinking of You

The Sisterhood of Crafters: Thinking Of You Challenge

Just under the deadline with this card for the challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters to include the prominent sentiment of “Thinking of You”. It was a snowy day at our home on Saturday so I was able to create some backgrounds using the Pretty Pink Posh Layered Hearts Stencil A&B. This stenciled background was created with mulled lavender Distress Oxide ink and the second stencil GKD’s Glitz Glitter Get in wild lilac. Sponged some wild lilac ink on the Spellbinders large classic ovals die mounted it with some foam tape and then double cut cupid’s arrow from Penny Black’s sweet heart dies set. The sentiment was an older wood mounted stamp with no company name on it. Maybe from the dollar section at a big box store.

Thanks for looking. Happy Sunday!

Welcome Baby

I was in the need of two baby cards so I pulled out my GKD Bundle of Love stamp set from the Journey of the Heart StampTV kit and created my pink girl and blue boy card. Baby Girl was already born but we are waiting on that little boy to make an appearance.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping in for a peek.

Xany's Two

ModSquadChallenge Birthday Balloons Challenge

Our youngest granddaughter is turning 2 on Monday. Alexandra or Xany as she was nicknamed by her dad is a little shy but I’m hoping this big bouquet of balloons will make her smile until we get to see her.

Stamp set is Gina K Designs Birthday Bash by Rupa Shevda, Cuttlebug embossing folder was inked with Hero Arts ombre ink pad, Poppystamps Pinpoint Balloons dies and Concord & 9th double cut numbers dies also used.

This card will be entered into the ModSquadChallenge – Birthday Balloons Challenge.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Recipe for Snowflakes

As You See It Challenge 216
JustUsGirls Word Week 517

Today’s card will be entered into two different challenge groups. The first challenge is the As You See It Challenge Recipe Challenge 216 to include snowflake, silver, sequins, dry embossing and an inspiring message.

I chose a Sizzix embossing folder from my stash that included a message area, the sentiment is from Maker’s Movement “You are a Unicorn” stamp and die set that I won on a Facebook question contest. Thanks Maker’s Movement. Snowflakes are SSS Sensational Snowflakes cut in various silver glitter cardstock. Sentiment was embossed Ranger silver embossing powder.

The second challenge is to include snowflakes on a card. Which makes this one card fit the bill for two challenges which is a first for me! This was very appropriate card since we woke up to a light covering of snow on grasses surfaces only. Now that’s my kind of snow.

Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by for a peek.

Enchanted Heart

Dies R Us DRU Challenge #136 – Anything Goes using a die from the store.

Today’s card is for the challenge at Dies R Us using a metal die and one that is carried by the store. The die on my card is a Memory Box “Enchanted Heart” die that I just purchased from Dies R Us. I’m loving it and will hopefully add Glorious Hearts die which according to the packaging work together. I die cut the heart 4 times, used Hero Arts Pink to Red ombre ink pad for the inlaid heart pieces, added some extra Martha Stewart heart border punch hearts to the card and stamped the sentiment from Gina K’s Lovely Ladybug stamp set by Beth Slaika. The top heart outline was sprayed with Hero Arts’ white iridescent shimmer spray.

Thanks for looking and another great challenge from the team at Dies R Us.

Blue Chevron

ModSquadChallenge Patterned Paper Play

Challenge at ModSquadChallenge is to create your own patterned paper background. I used GKD’s Pretty Patterns by Melanie Muenchinger for my “zig-zag” background inked with Powder Blue (top and bottom section) in and then the middle in Tranquil teal GKD ink. Using the Scor-Buddy, I embossed and debossed the points of the chevron so IRL it show more dimension. The sentiment is also a GKD stamp from Happy Birthday to You set stamped in navy onto the SSS Burst Die** and then sprayed with Hero Arts white iridescent shimmer spray. This one is for my son-in-law’s birthday.

**This die was very difficult to cut out. I used a metal plate and ran it through my big shot maybe four times and it still did not completely cut out completely. I’m going to try again before contacting SSS to find out if they had any other issues with this die. If anyone has any cutting tips, please share.

Book It, Brooke!

Mod Squad Challenge Christmas/Winter

Today I created a bookmark for our granddaughter. It really is cute the things they put on their Christmas list. She’s 7and in second grade and both she and her brother love to read. This will be entered into the ModSquadChallenge Christmas/Winter theme challenge.

Using a 12×12 piece of cardstock which was scored in half, I lined outside and inside with patterned paper cardstock “Winter Dream” by craftsmart. The Hampton Art “polar” bear was stamped and die cut from GKD navy cardstock. I adhered small magnets to the inside between the patterned paper and the base cardstock so the bookmark snaps close.

I may have to may a more “manly” version for our grandson !!

Day 8 Moo!!

Double D Challenge – 12 Days of Christmas Part 2

So the Double D Challenge continues with Day 7-12 of the 12 Days of Christmas song. I chose Day 8 and found this coloring page that I resized, colored using Sunflower Metalic Marker pens for my maids and their milk pails, printed Bessie twice to cut one out and pop her out. Sentiment is from SU’s Very Punny stamp set as are the punched shapes.

This image just tickled my funny bone. Thanks for another fun challenge.

Happy 2020
