Thinking of You

There is a new challenge blog in town. Have you seen it? Daisy Doodles is starting their own challenge blog and their first challenge is a sketch challenge using this sketch. The challenge ends on Saturday, February 13th.


I thought I would try to play along and made this card. I made it as a "hope you feel better soon" card for a friend who has an injury. It gave me a chance to use the Clear Dollar Stamps that I won about a month ago and I haven't had a chance to use yet. I made it one evening this week when I should have been in bed. I could not get paper or ribbon placed similar to the sketch in a way I liked so I finally ended up using faux stitching.


I had crocheted this flower a few months ago when the instructions where all the rage on Splitcoast and never used it. (Did you know I have a cross reference for Stampin' Up and Close To My Heart to Copic Markers, Prismacolor pencils and DMC floss in my side bar?)

This card also fits the ABC Challenge of use something new.

Well, speaking of past my bed time..... I am going to finish up this post and head to bed. This week just wore me out and I have a busy day tomorrow.

SUPPLIES:

  • STAMPS: Pretty Perches by Clear Dollar Stamps, Woodland Whimsy by TPC Studios
  • PAPERS & CS: Stampin' Up Rose Red CS, white CS & Rose Red DP Paper Studio black CS
  • INKS: Stampin' Up Rose Red and Basic Black
  • EMBELLISHMENTS & TOOLS: Crochet flower, button, DMC floss, paper piercer
  • TECHNIQUES: Faux stitching

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
