Hello, gorgeous.

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve had a great week and have something fun planned for the weekend while #alonetogether! I’m still playing and have popped in with another card created for The Outlaws Challenges – this one is for the Twisted Thursday Challenge. All challenges are anything goes with an optional twist, and this time the twist is a map or sign. Our sponsor is STAMPlorations and I have the fun stamp set called A Girl and Her Shoes in my stash so I used it with some map paper to create a fun friendship card.


I recently added several more Crafter’s Companion Die-sire Create-A-Card die sets to my stash and used one called Emma for this card. What a fun shape! Using the graduating sizes, it’s so easy to create beautiful layered cards. I cut the stamped sentiment with a circle punch and layered it on a slightly larger punched circle. I added a Tim Holtz Paper Doll and a few black gemstones to complete the front.


Love, love, love the inside sentiment! The shoes are stamped off once and then the sentiment is stamped right over the shoes.


One more peek… really loving how this turned out! The sentiment goes with the map paper so well, lol!

Hello, gorgeous.

Hi everyone! As you know, the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog is turning six this month, and to celebrate, we’re hosting a Sixth Birthday Blog Hop & Challenge lasting six days, with six sponsors and six prizes! Be sure to visit the blog to check out all the details! I’m showcasing each of my blog hop projects individually so I can enjoy sharing them in some challenges.

My final blog hop project is a fun friendship card using A Girl and Her Shoes stamp set from STAMPlorations! This is one of my favorite stamp sets. The top flap on this card has been cut off with a curved scallop edge die. I stamped a fab pair of boots on the bottom flap and colored them with a Studio 71 alcohol marker.


I covered the top flap with a piece of pretty dotted patterned paper and added a die cut sentiment, voila… we have a ‘gorgeous’ card!


Here’s a shot of the very simple inside with a Marilyn Monroe quote hidden beneath the scallop flap. Love, love, love!

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Today is my post day on the Paper Wings Productions blog and I’m excited to share a DT inspiration project using the Vintage Domino Melange, Vintage Melange and Sayings and Sentiments stamp sets. I created a fun accordion style birthday book with a twine bow closure.


I cut the accordion base from kraft cardstock. I then cut the cover pieces and all the background pieces with a stitched rectangle die. I stamped the large flourish from the Vintage Melange stamp set on the front and back covers in brown ink. The front and inside sentiments are both from the Sayings and Sentiments stamp set. I heat embossed the front sentiment in gold, cut the two words apart and affixed them to the front above and below the twine line.


I stamped all nine domino-sized images from the Vintage Domino Melange stamp set on kraft cardstock and colored each with Spectrum Noir markers in a very basic fashion. I cut each image with a slightly smaller stitched rectangle die, layered each one onto a brown die cut and then adhered them to the accordion base. The birthday sentiment on the last panel is also from the Sayings and Sentiments stamp set, and is small enough to leave room to sign the book! ;)


Here are closer shots of the images. What a super fun project – and I’m thrilled with how it turned out!
