i love us

Hi everyone! Oh my gosh, time just needs to slow down – we CAN’T be approaching the end of January already! I’m not posting on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog today but have popped in this morning to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, a sweet Valentine created with the free (yep, free…) Simply Crafty SVGs Flowers For Mom Card cut file. I was really thinking outside the box on this one when I decided on a Valentine.

I added some Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops to the centers of the flowers for a little texture, and placed the sentiment on the bottom of the flower pot.

2019_09040012a

I really love this design – the large flower there in the center pops up when the card is opened. Super cute!

And here’s a look from overhead so you can see the cool design on this!

coffee & friends

Hi everyone! It’s Hump Day… what the camel says, lol! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project with you, an awesome coffee card created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Latte Box Card cut file. What a fun and super easy card to put together! I stamped a sentiment on the small layered panel on the front. And I love that Sandy threw in an envelope which I cut with matching paper I used on the cup for a coordinated look!

2019_087008a

Here’s a shot of the back of the cup which features a plain panel for writing a custom message and signature.

And one more look, flattened and ready to pop into the envelope! I’m absolutely loving how this one turned out! Would be so easy to mass produce this to give several in different colors as a set! Love, love, love!

hello it’s been too long

Hi everyone! Ho Ho Ho and Merry Christmas to you all! I’m not posting on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog today but have popped in this morning to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, a sweet friendship card created with the free (yessss… free!) Simply Crafty SVGs Busy Bee Card cut file. How stinkin’ cute is this?!

2019_1019009a

I created the card base from heavy weight kraft cardstock and then added the elements one by one along with some stamping in black ink. I need to point out that the hello sentiment is not part of this cut file – it was created with a die in my stash. I loved seeing this card come together!

2019_1019010a

I stamped the inside sentiment in black ink on the vanilla cardstock and cut it with a fishtail sentiment strip die.

2019_1019011a

One more peek… such so adorable! ;)

Hi everyone! Christmas will be here exactly two weeks from today! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a super cute Christmas card for my stash created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Christmas Tree Farm Box Card cut file. How about that sentiment… wouldn’t you agree that going to pick out the perfect Christmas tree made wonderful moments and warm memories?! Whether you were a child or an adult taking your children, it’s a wonderful time of the year!

2019_0904006a

I used some very cool star emboss resist paper for the background and inked it with several shades of blue distress inks, making the outside darkest and going lighter and lighter toward the moon.

2019_0904007a

I inked some light shadows across the moon with gray ink, colored the star on the Christmas tree with sparkle overlay marker, and gave the ornaments a little dimension with a white gel pen.

2019_0904008a

I stamped the front and back sentiments on white cardstock in black ink and cut them with a rectangle die. I layered the back sentiment on dark green cardstock.

2019_0904009a

And here’s one final look, flattened and ready to put in an envelope. Love, love, love this card!

autumn Blessings

Hi everyone! Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow to my friends in the States! I’m not posting on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog today but have popped in this morning to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, a fun autumn card created with the free (yep, free!) Simply Crafty SVGs Fall Pumpkin Gatefold Card cut file. I’m absolutely in love with this card!

2019_1019013a

I added some stamping in brown ink to turn this into an autumn card. I cut the front sentiment with a fishtail strip die and popped it up on dimensionals on the pumpkin.

2019_1019014a

I stamped the inside sentiment in the dark brown ink.

2019_1019015a

One more look… so simple and I love how it turned out!

Thinking of you at Christmas

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, an adorable Christmas card for my stash created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Penguin Christmas Box Card cut file.

2019_0904001a

I have to tell you this… within 10-15 seconds of adhering the gemstones, Molly (one of our cats) jumped up on my desk and chomped down on the tree! So you know what that means – this card will be sent to a family member who won’t mind a little cat spit and teeth marks! Bwahahaha!

2019_0904002a

This was a fun card to put together. I used a light/dark teal color scheme with a pop of pink on the gifts. I can’t take my eyes off that penguin – he is so stinkin’ cute!

2019_0904003a

The sentiments on the front and back, from one of my favorite stamp sets, were stamped in black ink.

2019_0904004a

And here’s one final look at the card flattened and ready to put in an envelope – that’s what’s so fun about box cards! And I know… you’re still trying to find the kitty teeth marks on that tree, aren’t you?! LOL!

2019_1019001a

I love how these turned out! I glued them closed to use them as decor.

I used black for the boxes and two shades of gray for the tops.
