Good afternoon scrappy friends,
Just wanted to let you know that I have been asked to join the Sketches In Thyme design team. I am jumping for joy and look forward to working with the talented Mavens over there!
There's a new challenge today at Cards In Envy: From the Heart. The challenge is to create an A2 love or Valentine card.
I used Crate Paper Love Notes collection and came up with this:
This was an easy card to make- just layers and torn edges and of coarse, stitching. The sentiment is a sticker I popped up with foam tape.
Today I am sharing a layout I created using the January 15th Stuck?! sketch along with a stash challenge at Turtle Soup to use 6x6 paper pads to create your page.
I used Crate paper Craft Market with a few fussy cut clocks from a Robin's Nest paper for this page of Sierra and I:
I created my background using watercolors and spatters of gold and black mists. Then I started layering papers and embellies:
Here you can see one of the fussy cut clocks and check out that wood and gold hello piece, love it! I did add a few word stickers from Autentique:
Today I am sharing a card for today's challenge at Cards In Envy.
The challenge is to create an A2 white card, any theme as long as they are mostly white.
I took a piece of white cardstock and dry embossed it using my Cuttlebug. I then added half a white doily along with a flower cut file that I stitched in white also. I topped it off with a "love" Memorydex Tab from Pink Paislee and some white ribbon:
This is the second time I have done anything white on white and both times I have loved the outcome! It's so elegant! I need to remember to do this more often.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!
Hello and happy Sunday!
I am once again hosting Project 12 over on the Turtle Soup forum this year. I posted the cover page challenge yesterday and just wanted to share my page here.
I used the January challenge over at the 123 Challenge Blog and created this layout:
I used a Heidi Swapp stencil along with yellow and orange mists to create my background.
Here are a few close ups:
I used some old chipboard numbers from my stash and added Gesso to them. Once that was dry, I ran them through my Cuttlebug for some texture. I colored them with Gelatos and then added the black stitching with a marker. I added those numbers to the top of a few doilies.
Most of the items I used are from my stash- flowers, brads, Heidi Swapp Words colored with a red Gelato and October Afternoon mini alphas. I also added the wood veneer "Smile" from Evalicious.
