Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great week! This is my very first crafty post on my new blog and I couldn’t be more stoked! I realize it’ll be a while before all my blogger friends find me here but I’m still excited and hope it won’t take too long. It was definitely time to make a switch and I wanted something cheerful and fun, so I created this blog (named after my beloved Love To Scrap!) in some pretty bright colors! Our newest challenge at Let’s Craft and Create began on the 5th and I’m happy to share my mid-month DT inspiration project for Challenge #121 – Things With Wings! I created a monochrome friendship card in shades of teal with a pop of black.


I used coordinating Stampin’ Up! stamps, ink, papers and cardstock, and colored the flowers with matching Spectrum Noir markers. Can you believe there’s no big bow?! LOL


My first spinner card! I stamped the dragonfly on the spinner and colored the wings with clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer.


Dragonflies are so majestic and beautiful – right up there with butterflies in my opinion. I really enjoyed creating this card and love how it turned out.


I’m happy to enter this fun spinner card into the following challenges:


Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Island Indigo and Basic Black cardstock, Stampin’ Up! Regals DSP Stack
Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Awesomely Artistic stamp set
Ink: Stampin’ Up! Island Indigo ink, Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Dies/Punches: Stampin’ Up! 2″ and 1-1/4″ Circle Punches, Spellbinders Classic Circle die
Accessories: Clear Wink of Stella, MISTI, White threadI hope you’ve enjoyed this project and will consider playing in our ‘things with wings’ challenge this time!Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time! ;)


Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
