Just for You

Friday, April 29, 2016

Happy Friday friends. I hope you've had a good week. I'm not going to sugar coat it -- mine's been rough but I'm looking forward to the weekend. My baby turns 13 on Sunday so we will have some birthday festivities to attend to.  I can't believe I will have another teenager in the house. 

I had so much fun making this card. I first started by heat embossing in white the abstract background stamp set from MFT. I then did some ink blending over it. My flower die cut is from an Essentials by Ellen die set and my sentiment is from my well loved Label Love set from Altenew.  I added some clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh and popped the entire card panel up on foam tape.

Happy Mother's Day for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Hi friends. My card today is for Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I started by doing some masking and inking of the flower images from the Mom's Layered Flowers I then stamped the sentiment and then die cut the panel with the extra fabulous Hand Stitched Nested Rectangle dies.

I popped up my pain panel on foam tape for added dimension. And believe it or not, I left this card embellishment free. Seems like normally I would have added some sequins but for some reason, I left them off this card. Maybe I just forgot?  :)

Thanks so much for visiting today. Crafty hugs!

A day on the Lake for Frantic Stamper

Monday, April 25, 2016

Hi friends. Did you know that Frantic Stamper is now having mini-themed releases twice a month? There were a great bunch of dies a week ago as part of its Father & Son release.

For today's card, I am using the Day on the Lake die. I started by doing some ink blending for my sky background. I also die cut some waves and did more ink blending. 

I hope you all have great day and start to this week. Crafty hugs!

Christmas Card Challenges Week #21 -- Anything Goes

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Hi friends. I have a fun gift tag to share with you today for the current anything goes challenge at Christmas Card Challenges. I started with the super fun tag die from Reverse Confetti that I cut twice. I love the die that lets you cut into it to slot a gift card in it. 

I then adhered the two tags together, just on the outsides. I then added a coffee mug with some corrugated cardboard for a bit more realistic look. Some twine and ribbon finish it off.
