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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
