Catered Crop–So Shapely

Pull out those die cuts and punches and join in the latest Catered Crop recipe swap – So Shapely.    How fun!  For my card, I broke out my hexagon dies again.  I love these dies but sometime struggle with how best to use them.    So once again, I tried to simplify things and keep them clean.  Well, clean for me at least.  Linda has curated another fabulous board on Pinterest to give our creativity a jump start.  Click in the photo to be taken to her board, To Die For – Die Cuts and Punches.As usual, while working on my project, I had a song stuck in my head.    Sooooo, I thought I would share it with you.   Check out the Pipettes singing “Pull Shapes”.  Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you will link up you “Shapely” project at the Catered Crop Recipe Swap.Supplies:Stamps:  Tags (G483) from Great Impressions Stamps Inks:  Close To My Heart Chocolate, Distress Ink Antique Linen & Tea Dye Papers:   Papertrey kraft CS,  My Mind’s Eye Good Day Sunshine Girl DP Tools:  Big Shot,…

Great Impressions–Missing U

Hello!  Happy Monday!   This was a big weekend for our family.  My daughter left for a week at sleep-away camp for the first time.  In my head, I know she will have fun and make new friends, in my heart, I’m nervous for her.    I can’t wait until she comes home on Saturday and I get to hear all about her adventures.I made this card to put in the care package that I am sending her.   I know she liked the bunnies from this stamp.  I thought I would try to use the stamp in a different way.  Does this bunny look lonely when he is sitting all alone?  I hope you have a wonderful week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Bunny Backs (E749) from Great Impressions Stamps Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers: Papertrey white CS Tools:  Big Shot, Papertrey alphabet die Embellishment:  Cork, Kaiser gemstones, Cosmo Cricket tiny type, misc. washi tape Great Impressions Stamps Bunny Backs (E749)
