Laundry counted cross-stitch

Hi everyone! Happy August 1st – it should be about time for the weather to start cooling off! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog, and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #37 – August Anything Goes! I created the most adorable laundry room wall hanging! OMG!

Leslie

I picked up this counted cross-stitch kit almost a year and a half ago, and it had been laying in my studio, so I decided to make it. It had been a very (very) long time since I did any counted cross-stitch, but I remembered how easy it was to do. The kit contained the cloth, all the colors of thread and the hoop, and I added the bow at the top.

One more look… so glad I finally got around to making this! I just love it!

Just A Little Note

Hi everyone! Happy Monday – hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge is live over at Love to Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration with you today for LTCCB #36 – July Anything Goes! ! I created an awesome set of 16 note cards using a One Sheet Wonder template from a very talented lady HERE. This is the largest set of note cards I’ve ever made and they are for my sister. She’s very active in her church and frequently sends cards to shut-ins and church members otherwise unable to get out, so I think these will be put to good use. ;)

Leslie

I really enjoyed using the One Sheet Wonder template and cut two patterned papers which yielded 16 cards. I used a green and yellow color combo which I think turned out really nice. The background piece for each card was layered on green cardstock and one scalloped edge punched from yellow cardstock layered beneath that. The sentiment was stamped on the yellow cardstock, punched with a circle punch and layered on a scalloped circle punch, then adhered to a double-ended flag. The style is basically the same for all the cards which kept it simple. ;)

I left the inside of all the cards blank so my sister can write a custom message in each one as she sends them out. I really love how these turned out and I know I’ll be using this OSW template again soon! Oh, and I also created the coordinating box using my free template that can be found on the Freebies page on my blog HERE.

Cardstock/Paper: The Paper Studio White cardstock, American Crafts Leaf cardstock, Stampin’ Up Delightful Dijon cardstock, Simple Stories Wood & Gingham Basics paper pad

Happy Anniversary

Hi everyone! Wow, oh wow… we’re starting the middle of the year! Can you believe it?! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I”m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #35 – June Anything Goes! I created a pretty anniversary card in one of my favorite color combos of pink and green!

Leslie

I created a green card base and rounded one corner for a little interest. I stamped the heart strip (an old Stamp Camp stamp my beloved sister gave me a number of years ago) in pink ink, embossed it with clear embossing powder and layered it on light pink cardstock. The pretty patterned paper that I put across the bottom is from a new paper pad I just got at Hobby Lobby and I’m in love! I added a thin strip of the light pink cardstock to border the printed paper, and embellished it with some tiny pink flat-back pearls.

2019_0317002a

I decorated the inside panel with some leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, and stamped a simple sentiment. The front and inside sentiments are also from Stamp Camp sentiment stamp sets.

One more look… I’m smitten with every aspect of this card – from the color combo to the stamps and the patterned paper!

Just Because

Hello, my crafty peeps! Happy Hump Day to you! A new challenge launched this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #34 – May Anything Goes! I created a project with lots of green (which just happens to be my favorite color) – an adorable friendship card featuring papers, digital image and sentiments from Polkadoodles.

Leslie

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and layered her on a stitched rectangle die cut. I added a lacy die cut, a narrow strip of gold mirror cardstock and some bling from my stash.

you are fabulous

Hello, my crafty peeps! Time is flying by and a new challenge has launched this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog. I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #33 – April Anything Goes – an Arrow Fold friendship card! Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love fancy folds and this one rates right up there with the best! My inspiration came from Sam, HERE. Sam is one of my newer YouTube subscriptions and she’s fantastic!

I used Stampin’ Up paper and cardstock, and a new Hero Arts stamp set. I used a couple dotted circle dies for the layered sentiment, some pretty flowers and a twine bow, a few flags embellished with white dots, and a filigree charm.

Leslie

Here’s a shot of the inside. I’m thrilled with how this turned out. This paper is so pretty! I did embellish the centers of most of the flowers with my white Gelly Roll pen to make them pop.

Know your own happiness.

Hi everyone! Yep, it’s that time of the month… busy 1st with lots of design team projects so hang in there with me! A new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you for LTCCB #32 – March Anything Goes. I created a pretty note card using stamps from the Blank Page Muse. I rarely use an uncolored image but I thought this would look awesome with just a pop of color, so that’s what I did!

2018_06120004a

I sure do love all my dotted dies. I cut the image with a rectangle one and layered it on black and then again on white, added a stamped image popped up on foam, and adhered the panel to a red card base. I’ve always loved a red, white and black color combo!

2018_06120005a

This is a note card so I layered a blank white panel on black cardstock for the inside, leaving lots of room for a custom message.

thanks

Hello, crafty peeps! Happy February 1st! Today would have been my parents’ 71st wedding anniversary – I know they are celebrating in Heaven! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #31 – February Anything Goes! I was commissioned by a co-worker a to create a thank you card and this is what I came up with. She loved it!

2018_08230001a

I heat embossed this large image in black and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers, keeping it very simple with just shades of yellow and green. I cut the image with a dotted rectangle die and layered it on pastel green pearlized cardstock and then on thick black foam for dimension.

2018_08230002a

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the pearlized cardstock, layered it on black cardstock and stamped a simple greeting.
