Support Card

Good day! This afternoon I saw the challenge at Simon Says is Fun With Stencils, so I decided to play along. I used the Tumbling Leaves stencil with distress inks in Bundled Sage and Speckled Egg by Ranger/Tim Holtz. The stencil was used directly onto a piece of white brick paper by The Paper Studio and it was matted to a piece of retired Baha Breeze cardstock by Stampin' Up!. The One Day at a Time sentiment is from Verve Stamps and two little butterflies were added from my stash. That's it! So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Hoots For You Card

Good day! It's been awhile since I've played along at Inky Paws. Their current challenge is a color challenge, so I though I would give it a go and this Hoots For You Card is what I created. The stamp set used is called Love Owl-ways by Newton's Nook and I also used their cloud stencil. Copic markers were used to color the image and then it was die cut with the coordinating dies. Some glossy accents were added to the eyes of the owl. The paper layers were cut with the Newton's Nook Frames & Flags die set and everything was adhered flat. Well, that's about it. I appreciate you stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day.

Love You Card - TMS #638

Hello! It's the first Tuesday of the New Year and we are back with a sketch challenge this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches. We are starting the New Year off with our favorite sketches of 2021 and this week was my pick and the sketch is from challenge #612. It's always fun to look back on what everyone made the first time. For this Love You Card I used a newly acquired stamp called Little Charmer by Penny Black and colored the image with Copic markers. Once colored I used the coordinating die to cut it out. The patterned papers are from the Cupid & Co. paper pad by Echo Park (2020) and the love you dies are by Momenta. That's it! We would love for you to join us this week.

Thank You Card with Tree

Well... after all those presents are unwrapped, sending a thank you card is always a good idea. So, I made this card for my parents using some of my older stash. At the rate I buy patterned paper I will never use it all and I know several of my stamps sets haven't been used enough. It felt good to use these neglected supplies. Most everything is retired by Stampin' Up! except for the Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink by Ranger. It's nothing fancy, just a simple Thank You Card with Tree. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!🌲

This card is entered into the anything goes challenge at Krafty Chicks.

Smile Card

Hello! I have a quick post to share this Smile Card I made with a new word die from Pink & Main. It was included free with my last order and free is always fun. As it turned out I had the perfect paper to use and it's from the Glitter Girl paper pad by American Crafts (2017). To add a little detail and sparkle three yellow circles were punched and topped with red sequins. It's just a simple and fun card that will hopefully make someone smile. I'm entering this card into the challenge at Modsquad to use something new. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!😊
