Hi everyone! Oh Happy Day! I hope you have a fun weekend planned! I’m absolutely delighted to be on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with my first project as a new design team member! I created a friendship card featuring a pretty Autumn wreath.

OMGoodness, I can’t even describe how much I enjoyed creating this card because Autumn/Fall is my favorite time of year! I completely covered the front panel with Autumn Washi Tape. I cut a round frame using two circle dies and built the wreath from a bunch of leaf die cuts. I embellished the wreath with Leaf Brads and Scarecrow Brads and adhered it to the front panel. I layered the front panel on orange cardstock and adhered it to the card base. I added a bow at the bottom of the wreath and a stamped sentiment flag in the center of the wreath. 

I embellished the inside panel with another strip of the Autumn Washi Tape and a leftover leaf die cut. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink and layered the panel on the orange cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! That Washi Tape and those brads are amazing and so fun to work with!

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.
