In My Thoughts

 


Hello Thursday, it has been cloudy with sprinkles of rain for most of the day here.  I worked from home today and managed to get my 30 minute walk done before the rain started.  Today's project share is a card created using sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge #752  The pattern papers are some of the last scraps from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 paper pad, used a scrapbook.com die to cut the flower and a Spellbinders stamps for the sentiment. This is the second sympathy card that I have needed this week, need to add some to my stash.

Thank you for your visit, continue to be safe and hurry back soon.

Sunday Musings

 


Hello and happy Sunday evening, doing a quick drive by post to share a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Try a Sketch on Tuesday #644, pattern paper and the bunny die is from scrapbook.com.  All other papers came from my scraps stash, I used a Simple Stories stamp for the sentiment and not one that came with the bunny.  I'm also sharing this card for the Spring Has Spring challenge over at Shopping Our Stash #518.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and your family a wonderful week.  I hope you'll return soon!

CIU #301 - 3-2-1

 


Hello and happy Friday, let the weekend begin!  Today' project share is my latest design team project for the Cut it Up challenge blog.  The theme for challenge #301 is 3 - 2 - 1 ( 3 gems, 2 die cuts and 1 sentiment).

Not sure why this was a struggle for me but after a few attempts I decided to share this thank you card.   I used  3 Stampin' Up gems, a gift bag die and I stamped the sentiment on a stitched rectangle die cut.  I failed miserably at not adding items to my stash, this was my first time using the bag die, I did use  papers from the My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose 6x6 paper pad, it has been in my stash for a very long time. The sentiment is from a Spellbinders stamp set.

I hope you will visit the Cut it Up challenge blog for more inspiration, create and share your 3-2-1 themed project.  The  challenge starts today and ends on Wednesday,  April 17, 2024 at noon PST.

Thank you for your visit, continue to be safe and hurry back soon!

Happy Easter


 Good morning, wishing you a wonderful day filled with the blessings of love and happiness!  Today's project share is a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches #750.  I wanted to use a recently created tag that was sitting on my desk so I decided to use it and a another die instead of the oval.  Everything used on the card has been on my stash for some time, this was my first time using the splatter embossing folder.  I shared this card over on IG for the @craftydares, @2crafters1design and the @satmorn challenges. I am also sharing this card for the Spring has Sprung challenge #518 over at Shopping Our Stash.  

Thank you for your visit, continue to be safe and hurry back again soon!

Palm Sunday


 Hello and happy Palm Sunday, today's card share is another Easter card created using sketch inspiration from Sketch N Scrap card sketch #262.  I used mostly paper scraps, an embossing folder, an EK Success edge punch, cut the basket using an Echo Park die and a KS Crafts die set for the remaining die cuts. Added a stamped sentiment and a few gems and this card was done, I had a hard time getting a good picture; it does look better in person!

Thank  you for your visit, take care and hurry back soon.

CIU #300 - Happy Birthday

 

 

Hello Friday and let the weekend begin!  Today at the Cut it Up challenge blog we are celebrating our 300th challenge by sharing our birthday themed projects.

When creating my project I decided to step out of my comfort zone by doing some things a little different from my usual clean and simple style. So off to YT University for some ideas that included using some of my unused stash!  I created the background by inking some clouds, adding some word stamping and finally  some splatter.  I used some TH salvaged patina distress ink and splatter.  I even made my own cloud stencil. Cut the balloons, added some burlap twine, made a bow and added to the card with some adhesive foam. The word happy was leftover from a previous project, added a few gems and the card was done!  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #121 over at Crafts Galore  and the monthly challenge over at Die Cut Divas.

I hope that you will visit the Cut it Up challenge blog for more design team inspiration  as we have some guest designers that have joined us for our 300th challenge.  Create and share your birthday themed project, the challenge starts today and ends Wednesday, April 3, 2024 at noon PST.

Thanks for your visit,  take care and hurry back soon.

Hello Spring


 Hello Thursday afternoon, doing a quick drive by post to share another card.  Today's card uses sketch inspiration from Try a Sketch on Tuesday, challenge #643, miscellaneous papers and items that were sitting on my desk within arms reach.  I cut the pots using a Cottage Cutz die, the watering can and tulip are Echo Park dies and the sentiment stamp is from an unbranded set.  Finished the card by adding a few gems and it is now ready to go postal; no Spring temps in our forecast!

Thank you for your visit, take care and hurry back soon.  Tomorrow the Cut it Up challenge  starts and we are celebrating our 300th challenge so head on over for some awesome birthday creations inspiration!
