hello Gorgeous

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday to you! They sure roll around fast, don’t they?! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to be on the Eyelet Outlet Blog today with a fun DT inspiration project and something a little different than the last few projects I’ve posted! My last several cards were created with the new quarantined-inspired brads in the store and were a series of clean and simple cards paying tribute to our frontline healthcare workers. It’s almost the middle of March so I thought a pretty Spring-themed friendship card was in order so I used some fun epoxy flowers embellished with clear bling on the front and some lovely purple check washi tape on the inside!

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base (my favorite, can you tell?!) and a strip from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I layered the white strip on a slightly larger strip of CutCardStock Granny Smith cardstock and adhered some leftover negative-space circles that I’ve had on my desk for several months. These circles were layered on pink cardstock and they were so pretty I didn’t want to throw them away – and I figured if I left them out on my desk I’d find a use for them sooner rather than later! SCORE! I adhered an Epoxy Flower to the center of each circle and then a Clear Jewel to the center of each flower. I stamped the sentiment in purple ink and that completed the front of this super simple card.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of white cardstock layered on a piece of green cardstock with an added strip of Purple Checked Washi Tape. I adhered the layered strip to the left side of the inside panel, stamped the inside sentiment in purple ink and layered the panel on green cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! I can’t believe how I’m navigating toward CAS these days. Less is definitely more!

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.

2017_09150001a

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.

2017_09150002a

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! ;)

2017_09150003a

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