LOVE Card with Cat

Good day! I have a quick post to share this LOVE Card with Cat. It was inspired by several challenges that you will find listed at the bottom of this post. My goal this year is to make better use of the items already in my stash. While grieving the passing of my brother over the past couple of years, I've done a lot of online crafty shopping. Now it's time to use all those goodies. This card features a cat image by Reverse Confetti from the LOVE is in the Air stamp set. The image was colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating die. A large LOVE die cut by Reverse Confetti was layered and adhered flat. All patterned papers are from the French Kiss paper pad by Doodlebug Design Inc. To add some sparkle a thin strip of glitter cardstock was added and that's it. Thanks for stopping by!💗

Enjoy Your Day Card - TMS #640

Hello! This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we are still revisiting our favorite sketches of 2021. It's Debi's pick this week and she went with the sketch from challenge #605. I also enjoyed this sketch and it was just as much fun the second time. I hope you will be inspired to join us this week. For all the challenge details and design team inspiration click HERE. Just remember to link your creation by 8 pm EST on Sunday. 

To start this card I found the daffodil image already colored in my stash. Then I searched through almost every 6 x 6 paper pad I had until I found these two oldies from the For The Record 2 paper pad by Echo Park (2012). Lastly, the Enjoy Your Day sentiment was added and everything was adhered onto Peapod colored cardstock by Taylored Expressions. Well... that sums it up. So glad you stopped by!

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.
