How about that sketch?! I love it! Seems like I’ve been creating a lot of thank you cards lately which I know will be put to good use! One can never have too many of these in their stash.

This was a fun card to put together. I created a simple background with skinny washi tape and layered the panel on black cardstock. Sans the black glitter alpha stickers, the rest of the elements are from pieces and parts of a petite kit from The Wild Hare Kits. What fun… you take a survey, and they hand-pick all the items for your kit based on your likes, and I must say they hit this one right out of the park!

The elements used on the inside (except for the black glitter alpha sticker) are also from the kit. So easy! ;)

Another look… loving how this turned out! Lots of sparkle!

Wanted to include one more image – a close-up of the white glitter washi tape in between each of the colors which you can’t see very well in the other photos.

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.

Hello, my crafty friends! I’m very happy to share that I’m guest designing over at Scrapping4fun Challenges again! One of my cards was featured a few weeks back and the lovely Rachelle asked me to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge, so here I am! And I’m stoked to share my GD project for Challenge #103 – Winter Wonderland!

My inspiration came from the the gorgeous shades of blue in the inspiration photo. I immediately thought of “Winter Blues” and created a glittery blue thank you card. One can never have too many thank you cards in their stash, especially around the holidays. The shoe image I used is called Christmas Heels from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and I’ve had it in my stash for several years. I have a (slightly huge) shoe fetish and I have just about every one of Jodie’s shoe images, lol! I love them!

2017_10280004a

I colored the shoe with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut it. I cut a piece of blue glitter paper the size of the card base and cut the bottom off with a stitched scallop edge die to expose the white card base beneath. I used some Inspired by Stamping stamp sets for the front and inside. I stamped the front sentiment in the lower right corner of the card base and added some very light blue Crystal Drops. Super easy and super fun! :D

2017_10280005a

I kept the inside fairly simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel. I’m really diggin’ how this turned out, lol!
