Just a Note

Hello, friends! Hope you’re having a good week! Our new challenge is live over at Southern Girls Challenge and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today! As always, the theme for our challenge is Anything Goes and we’d love to see what you create! Our sponsors this time are Krafter’s Cart, Moonflower Digi Stamps and KLM Designs. I was provided the Mum digital image from KLM Designs and created a pretty note card.

From ivory cardstock, I created a bi-level card base (meaning the front of the card base is just a tad shorter than the back), cutting the front off with a stitched scallop edge die. I layered yellow cardstock on the front and the inside, and then die cut two stitched rectangle panels for the front and two for the inside. The ‘Just a Note’ sentiment was included with the mum digital image so I made sure to capture that on the bottom right of the ivory panel I die cut for the front. I also printed the mum image 12 times, colored them with bright Bic Mark-It markers and then commenced to fussy cutting. I arranged them in circular fashion, popping several of them up on foam pads. I finished the front with a few tiny orange gemstones.

Since this is a note card, I left the inside blank with plenty of room to write a custom message.

And one more peek… I really love how this turned out! Sure makes me think of Spring! ;)

Just A Note for Inspired By Stamping Blog Hop

IBS_for_10-26-17_BlogHop2

Hello, crafty peeps! Today, I am participating in the Inspired by Stamping Blog Hop. So many great friends have gotten together to share their favorite Inspired by Stamping products! You can find more great products HERE! The next stop on the hop is Lindsay’s blog, or Joanna’s blog where you will find a complete list of all the ladies who are joining us today!

Let me side-track you for a moment to share my project! I created a pretty nautical-themed card using the Seaside stamp set, Seaside Sentiments stamp set and Petite Banners stamp set along with the Fancy Label Dies 3.

I began by creating a card base from dark blue cardstock. I then stamped the lighthouse in Versamark on watercolor paper and embossed it in clear embossing powder. I used Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire distress ink and water to create the watercolor background, drying between applications for a better mix of color. I trimmed the panel and cut the embossed lighthouse out of the center with a stitched rectangle die, then adhered the large panel to ivory cardstock.

I layered the rectangle lighthouse die cut on silver mirror cardstock, then again on the dark blue cardstock that I used to create the card base. I rotated the layered die cut slightly and adhered it to the panel. I stamped the pelican and wood piling in Rich Cocoa ink and the sentiment in Tuxedo Black on ivory cardstock. I colored the pelican and wood piling with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut them, and then cut the sentiment with the coordinating die. I wrapped twine around the panel twice and tied it in a knot. I adhered the pelican and wood piling in the lower left corner, and then adhered the sentiment diagonally on the tilted die cut. I adhered the panel to the card base and then added several blue Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish the front.

I decorated the inside ivory panel with left over strips of the watercolor background and dark blue cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink, layered it on dark blue cardstock and then adhered the panel to the card base.
