So thankful

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday – hope you’re having a great week! One more day till Friday, lol! It’s June 1st and time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration card for LTCCB #11 – June Anything Goes! I created a corner fold thank you card that is also clean and simple. This is an interesting fold and I’m trying to learn to create with less dimension which is really tough for me. ;)

I used the absolutely gorgeous GKD Painted Autumn stamp set for the focal image panel which I layered on gold mirror cardstock. I love multi-step stamp sets with large images, as they create gorgeous backgrounds!

I stamped the inside sentiment along with some leaf stems on a layered panel. I really love how this turned out!

Hi everyone! I’m back with another post on this fine 1st day of June which marks the middle of the year already… can you believe it?! We have a brand new challenge launching over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #98 – Boyz Rule! We’d love to see your masculine projects this time! Our sponsors this month are Oddball Art Co., DRS Designs and Bugaboo Digi Stamps so come on over and play with us for a chance to win an awesome prize!

I used the amazing Soldiers of America greeting from DRS Designs for my CAS patriotic thank you card. This is a shout-out to all the men in my family who have served in the military – my father, my son, my husband and my brother-in-law. Thank you for your service! I really enjoyed creating this card, as it had meaning.

I’ve got the die cutting fever again and have been playing with my Scan N Cut (a lot) since we got situated after our move. I thought these awesome patriotic and square frame cut files would pair perfectly with the DRS Designs greeting!

And nothing says ‘thank you’ any better than this…

Let’s get our merry on.

** 6/7/17 Top 3 at Fab ‘n’ Funky Challenges! **

Hello, crafty friends! Happy June 1st – it’s unreal that May is behind us already! A new challenge is launching this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog. You’ll remember that all of our challenges are Anything Goes and there’s always an optional twist there to inspire you. I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #2 – Anything Goes with optional twist of Stamping! If you play the twist with us this month, please use rubber or clear stamps!

I’ve had the Stampers Anonymous Crazy Dogs, Crazy Cats and Crazy Things (all with coordinating dies) for months now and have only used the Crazy Dogs stamps and dies once. So I got out the Crazy Cats and Crazy Things stamps and dies to create a fun CAS card for this challenge. The front and inside sentiments and the stars are from the Paper Smooches Holiday Cheer stamp set. SO much fun!

We have five fur babies so I really enjoyed using this set. Picking out the necktie and Santa hat for these guys was a major part of the fun. None of ours would tolerate any clothing or hats so I had to live vicariously through these comical stamped images, lol!

2017_04300005a

I decorated the inside with strips of the same paper used on the front, stamped a sentiment, and added a stamped and die cut candy cane with a few stars.
