Friends Forever

I love the challenges over at Clearly Inspired and try to participate each month. Yesterday I realized I was almost out of time for this month's challenge and I didn't have much time available to craft. I thought the perfect solution would be to use one of the precolored Bird on a Wire images from Doodle Pantry. Laurie had them available for free download a short time ago. But, when I went to print them out, I could not find them on my hard drive. I am having issues with my PC and I am not sure what happened to them. (Major bummer!)

I decided to stick with my precolored image idea and remembered that I had some from *Wink *Wink Ink. Thank goodness! I was able to print out this cute image and make the card in one evening (which is pretty fast for me!)

So what do you think? Although I love coloring images, I think I am going to keep these in mind for when I need something quick. Thank you for looking!

Challenges:


Supplies:

  • Stamps: Falling Apart from *Wink *Wink Ink, Just Because from CTMH
  • Papers: CTMH Veranda Creative Basics paper pack, Juniper and Neutral CS, GP CS
  • Inks: CTMH Juniper & Garden Green, Distress Inks Antique Linen
  • Tools: Crop-a-dile, Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities
  • Embellishments: RibbonFX ribbon, misc. eyelet & dewdrops

Hi Cheryl,

Oh that stamp is nice, and also the colours of your card. Love the colourblush on the stamp, i'm sorry don't now how to say it right, but i try, hihi.

Greetings, Jaimie

beautiful card, love the layers and I would have thought you hand colored it!

LOVE *wink*wink ink images! The precolored images are a blast to work with when you have a great idea for a card, but don't want to spend a lot of time coloring it first.

Fantastic card!

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…
