Dragonfly Notes (post-it note pad holder)

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day and Happy August 1st! A new challenge is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #25 – August Anything Goes! I created three post-it note pad holders for a dear friend last Christmas (for stocking stuffers) and I liked them so well that I decided to make some more. This is the first of the three I made. Super easy and a lot of fun.

Busy Flower Flip Flop

Hello, my crafty peeps! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

I created another sandal for my paper shoe collection – crafted from some gorgeous but busy flowered patterned paper with an embossed sole!

I used two coordinating papers from Dare 2B Artsy, and fussy cut several large flowers to create a layered piece to decorate the sandal.

I used my flip flop template which is a freebie on my blog HERE. These little sandals are so flippin’ cute! I wish I could wear them, lol!

You know how I love my fancy folds – I created a pretty Autumn pocket card using Hero Arts Color Layering Autumn Trees stamp set. I love this fold! ;)

You just can’t go wrong with these Hero Arts Color Layering stamps and Layering inks. I bought these in a bundle and they make it look like you’ve been stamping for hours, lol! The cardstock and paper are from Stampin’ Up. I can’t believe it, but no embellishments; just a fancy fold and stamping!

Here’s a shot of the card open, revealing the pocket…

Watercolor Poppies

Hi everyone! Happy first day of May! Our May challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #22 – May Anything Goes! I got out some Rubbernecker stamps and created a card featuring watercolor stamping on photo paper! OMG, these stamps are amazing! Lots of people can watercolor beautifully… but not me… so I rely on these stamps, lol!

2017_07130030a

 

Super fun and easy card. I chose chocolate brown for the card base and layered white and cherry red cardstock panels on it. I die cut some angled stitched border elements on the red panel before adhering them. I stamped the poppies in Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick distress ink and the stems in Walnut Stain and Espresso Truffle ink on the photo paper, and then cut it with a slightly angled stitched oval die. I affixed the panel to the card front on red foam and added White Gloss Crystal Drops and a tiny red seam ribbon bow.

2017_07130031a

 

I decorated the inside with leftover strips of the red and chocolate brown cardstock, then stamped the adorable Winnie the Pooh quote. I am absolutely smitten with this, lol!

With Deepest Sympathy

Hello, my crafty peeps! Can you believe it’s the first of April already?! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m proud to share my DT inspiration for LTCCB #21 – April Anything Goes! I created a pretty sympathy card in a yellow and purple color combo. Sympathy cards are not easy to create but we always need to have a few in our stash.

2017_07280008a

Patterned paper and stamps are from Dare 2B Artzy. Seam binding ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Image colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I added several loops of white quilting thread behind the bow for a little interest, along with a few tiny clear rhinestones.

2017_07280009a

I kept the inside fairly simple with just a stamped image on a panel layered on purple cardstock.

Relax… unwind note cards (set of 8 )

Hi everyone! You know what happens on the 1st… I have a gazillion posts for you! This month’s challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog is live this morning and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for  LTCCB #20 – March Anything Goes! I created a fun set of eight note cards, all featuring a pair of flip flops in the sand. I stamped four in teal ink and four in green ink, and embellished each with a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

2017_07280014a2017_07280015a

These were so easy and fun. I used Stampin’ Up premade Crumb Cake Note Cards and Envelopes, so all I needed to do was stamp the flip flops on white cardstock and cut them with the coordinating die, and stamp the sentiment on the front. The stamps and inks are from Dare 2B Artzy. I created a sand line with a Paper Smooches Stitched Border die. I left the insides blank as they are note cards.

One more view with the envelopes which feature a stamped pair of flip flops in matching ink. :)

Hi everyone! It’s the first day of the month so that means a few posts this morning! A new challenge has launched over at the Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #19 – February Anything Goes! I created a Valentine in a pink and black color combo, and it’s a Double Z Fold! You know how I love my fancy folds, lol!

2017_07280002a

This was fun, and despite the complex look, it was pretty simple. Half the fun was picking out the coordinating papers! The stamps, dies and papers are all from Stampin’ Up.

2017_07280001a

I stamped the valentine sentiment on the large center panel, and embellished it with Carnation Pink Crystal Drops and a die cut arrow.

2017_07280003a

The hearts on the front are die cuts attached with tiny staples.
