Monday with Lindsay - Girly card


Updated: This was a top 5 winner in the Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.
We are back to our normal posting schedule after all the birthday festivities earlier this month to celebrate the first birthday of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. Our theme for this week is "Feeling Girly".

Since I need several birthday cards over the next couple of weeks, I decided to make a girly birthday card. I used the cupcake tree image from the Sweet Stuff digital stamp set and gave the card a bit of a vintage feel. (Here is a shout out to my friend Scrap-It-Girl who gave me the old dictionary pages used on this card. Thank you!) To keep it girly and feminine I added pearls, lace, ribbon, and flowers.

Stop by to see what girly projects the rest of the DT created.

Challenges for this card:

Supplies:

  • Image: Sweet Stuff digital stamp set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff on mygrafico, Inside sentiment from Paper Garden Projects
  • Papers: My Minds Eye Love Nest paper stack, kraft cards stock from Papertrey, Georgia Pacific cs
  • Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Ink - tea dye
  • Embellishments & Tools: Stampin' Up markers, Sakura clear, silver, & pink glitter pens, Spellbinders nestabilities, Kaiser half pearls, Glimmer mist in pearl, Close To My Heart edge distressing tool, book pages, misc. ribbon, lace, small flowers

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…
