Home Sweet Home!

My friend has finished remodeling a new house and I wanted to create something special for her new place.  I created a mixed media board using patterned paper,  paper embellishments, stencils, embossing paste, background paper.  The final touches were adding a word banner and a welcome home heart.  I think she will like it.

Gingham Heart!

I love this stamp from Memory Box one of my favorites.  I embossed the heart using white embossing powder, added a die cut accent and a glittery heart.  Gray accent paper finishes the card layout.  Part of my Valentine collection of cards.   Love it!

Embossed heart

Hugs and Kisses!

When I checked in to the Monday Challenge for Simon Says Stamp I was happy as the feature was Valentine’s Day and the color red.  Here are some of my creations. I made a simple shaker card CASEd from a Pinterest post.  I bag in a box for a craft class I am teaching at Scrapbook Cove this weekend and one of my favorites- a Memory Box gingham embossed heart with an accent vine.  One more final element are glittery hearts!  I guess I had a red and gray color scheme happening.

Best Friends!

My daughter has two Boston Terriers and one is brown and white and the other is black and white.  I made this Valentine’s Day card to send to her to share with the pups.  I used a Simon Says Stamp set that I used on another project and was able to repurpose it for this card, too.  I added the bow tie and the scarf.  I cut out a frame, added a word tag,  twine and a sparkly heart to complete the layout. I think the pups and my daughter will like it!  I know that I do.


Shabby Chic Flowers

A cute plain photo holder embellished with mixed media accents for the always playing with paper #57 challenge. I used  specialty tissue paper, distress inks, stencils, embossing paste and fabric flowers.  Looks so much better than the plain $1.00 original. 


Orange Poppies

I made this card for the #alwaysplayingwithpaperchallenge #156.  The color challenge was to use white, teal, orange and navy colors.  I used a Penny Black cling stamp and colored the poppies  using Copic markers.  A circle die cut and scallop die cut were used.  Accent orange, teal, navy blue papers were used.  I added a twine accent bundle and a word sentiment.  Love the bright color combo.   I have a special friend who will enjoy this card.


Sky’s the Limit One Layer Card

Another challenge is for the one layer simplicity challenge “Sky’s The Limit” .  I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set using the paper airplane. I stamped the paper airplane and the dotted action stamp in archival black ink.  I use a light wash of distress ink to paint the paper airplane.  I added the word sentiment at the bottom and a tiny inked heart. Flying by to say hi!  #OLS22 challenge
