Sentimental Sundays - Let's Get Sentimental

Wow this week has flown by! I can't believe it is already time for the new Sentimental Sundays challenge. This week we are challenging you to "Get Sentimental" with us. Use a sentiment as a focal point for your project.



I love cards that use a sentiment for a focal point. I used a sentiment from the Gratitude Sentiments digital stamp set created by Raindrop Echo Designs (available on Whimsy Stamps). Verve Sketch VLVMar2011 (week 3) was the starting point for my card. Cream seam binding was dyed using an ink pad to match my papers. In real life, it is the exact color but the color changes a bit in the photo.
.
I hope you will join for our "Let's Get Sentimental" challenge at the Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog.

Thank you for stopping by!



Supplies:

  • Stamps: Gratitude Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs available on Whimsy Stamps
  • Papers & CS: PaperTrey kraft CS, Close To My Heart Perfect Day paper pack
  • Inks: Close To My Heart Sorbet ink (for dying the seam binding)
  • Tools: Sewing Machine, Stampin' Up edge punch, Martha Stewart leaft punch, 1" circle punch (for flower base)
  • Embellishments: Tattered Angels pearl glimmer mist, PaperStudio pearls, Hug Snug cream seam binding

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…
