Hi. I made this for a "Spring" challenge in a Facebook paper crafting group I belong to. I have always liked the Hambo Stamps digi, but this is the first time I paper-pieced the "umbrellas". The dp is a really pretty (and reasonably priced!) 6x6 pad from AC Moore called "Vintage Botanicals" by Love Nicole:
Hi! "Roses are red; violets are blue..." The new challenge starting today at Cards In Envyis Red and Blue (your white card base is ok). You can make any size card now at the Cards In Envy challenge; just make sure it is flat for mailing and doesn't have thick, bumpy elements.
Hello! The new challenge at Words 2 Craft By is "Celebrations" with an inspiration quote about Mardi Gras from Mark Twain. I've never been to Mardi Gras but certainly have heard and seen a lot about the festive parades and famous King Cakes. I used two Vera Lane Studio digis to create my version of a King Cake. It was fun adding lots more bling than usual to create a Mardi Gras atmosphere! I could use this for a March birthday card...
I made a quick Valentine today with an old favorite Hambo digi stamp! I hope the boys like it; they are getting so big now (14 and 12). Or is it 15 and 12...hmm. They live in CA and I can't wait to see them in April.
I was so inspired by this lovely Mo Manning digi stamp! I made this card in honor of yesterday's Women's March as my own little way of expressing the hope that all little girls dare to follow their dreams! I colored the digi with Copics and the background is made with Ranger distress inks:
Christmas Card Throwdown has a new format (formerly called 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, it now offers a challenge twice a month; once a week must have been tough to administer!). Once again I would like to try to keep up with their challenges and finish the year with a good stack of Christmas cards or have good cards to send to Send A Smile 4 Kids. We'll see how I do with my resolution.
It's a sketch challenge at CCT and here's the sketch:
And here is the card I made. You can see it is an A2 rectangle and I flipped the sketch:
Digital stamps: Vera Lane Studio.etsy.com: "Maple"
I had a bit of a challenge executing my idea but I had fun, especially coloring Maple. I cut a little sprig of holly from another dp to tuck in her pocket.
Thanks for stopping by; hope you'll visit again soon,
Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I just wanted to share good news that my vintage carousel card is published in the Winter issue of Stamper's Sampler on page 46! The challenge was to use their template of a carousel horse and make a card. I am thrilled that they liked my card enough to include it in their beautiful magazine! It is my first time published and I am sure you can tell I'm very excited about it!
Hello on the second day of 2017! The new challenge at Cards In Envy starting today is "Snow Birds." I found this perfect Stampendous cling stamp, Snow Bird, and colored it with Inktense pencils. I added Stickles to the branches for bits of "snow".
I hope you will join in the fun and create a card featuring snow and birds! I look forward to seeing your post at Cards In Envy challenge blog. Happy New Year!!
