Just Because

Hi everyone! It’s Friday and I swear they roll around so darn fast these days, lol! I hope you’ve had a great week! Our new challenge launched this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m delighted to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #63 – October Anything Goes! I created a clean and simple card featuring a pretty gold heat embossed 3-Flower Collage image stamped with an old Stamp Camp stamp that my late sister gifted me a number of years ago. This stamp definitely has some sentimental value.

I created a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel for the front which I adhered to a CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock panel. I stamped the 3-Flower Collage image in Versamark and heat embossed it in Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder. I trimmed the stamped image, layered it on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock, and colored the negative spaces of the branches and flowers with fine point Pitt Artist pens, connecting the squares with the branches. I adhered a cardinal brad to each collage square and adhered the panel to the bottom of the card base. I stamped the sentiment in red ink and added three small red flat-back pearls.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished the bottom of the panel with cardinal washi tape and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock cardstock, stamped the sentiment in red ink, and layered the panel on the red cardstock.

And one more look… I’m smitten with this stamped image embossed in gold!

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
