Hiya, crafty friends! Half the year is over… yep, Christmas will be here before we know it, lol! A new challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #27 – Anything Goes + Foiling. Remember, all of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer a different technique twist each month for inspiration but the twist is not required to play! This month the twist is to use foiling – this could be a Minc machine, foiled cardstock, aluminum foil, etc. If you’re inclined to play the twist, let your creativity soar! I created a hot pink Get Well card using DCWV Washi Foil, and if this doesn’t make someone feel better, it will certainly blind them, lol! It’s bright and I love it!
I’ve used lots of dies on this, starting with the scalloped stitched card base and stitched panels, then moving on to the foiled stitched oval with stamped sentiment, and finally the stamped and die cut band-aid with a little paper piecing. This was so much fun!
I left the inside blank for a custom written message.
And final look… did I mention how much fun this was?! Love how it turned out! And yes, it’s BRIGHT!

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day – hope you’re all having a great week! Today is my post day on the Paper Wings Productions blog and I’m happy to share a DT inspiration project using the Flower Power stamp set along with the Sayings and Sentiments stamp set, Perfect Pearls and a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Buckle. I created a pretty get well card with a vintage feel.
I stamped several flowers from the Flower Power stamp set randomly over white cardstock with the Perfect Medium in the Perfect Pearls Jewel kit. The Perfect Medium stamped in a light brown which I thought was odd because I remembered it stamping clear the last time I used it several years ago, lol! I applied the green, blue, red and purple Perfect Pearls powders anyway and got a muted vintage look to all the colors. I guess that’s what happens when you use ‘aged’ Perfect Medium, lol! But I sure like the way it turned out! I lightly misted the panel with water to bind the powders so they don’t rub off. I cut the background and the rest of the white and brown bag cardstock layers with the matting dies.
I stamped the sentiment in Frayed Burlap distress ink on a narrow strip of white cardstock cut with a matting die from the same set, layered it on the brown bag cardstock, added a buckle and adhered it to the front. I finished the front with several flat-back pearls.
For the inside, I decorated the white layered panel with a leftover strip of the stamped florals and kraft cardstock used on the front. I left the inside blank for a handwritten message.
