Always BE Amazing

Woo Hoo - fitting in a tiny flurry of cards while the fitting is possible - I seem to get derailed all over the place.  I think I enjoy the process even more being as its sporadic.  

I took incentive from this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches #489 -  I knew just what I wanted to do!

I used a natural cardstock and layered up some WeR Memory Keepers Chalkboard 6 x 6 DP trimmed into the slices.  I used a Simon Says Stamp "Be" stamp set for the sentiment in black Versafine.  I heat embossed in clear.  I blocked out sections and coloured the mid section using Tim Holtz Distress in Abandoned Coral. 

I die cut a spellbinders double layer butterfly using another DP scrap and an over-layer of transparent neutral vellum.  I finished this little beauty off with a gem from Studio Katia.  Last touch was some pretty very very fine embroidery foiled floss in a soft pink, swirled around the whole sweet butterfly.  \

I do indeed thank you for taking the time to visit today!  ♥ Wishing you creativity and happiness this week ♥

Love Deeply Card

I'm excited to create a card for a (new to me) card challenge: 

I had some very pretty wallpaper snippets given to me by a dear friend and the texture and pattern on this background paper grabbed my eye immediately.  I backed it with a black cardstock for even more visual impact.  I stamped a punched circle with "Love Deeply" a part sentiment from a Penny Black stamps set.  I added a scalloped circle die cut from Spellbinders. I punched a heart and cut a double notched ribbon from a fabric type paper.  I bumped the heart out using foam tape.  

Finishing touch are these three pretty opaque gems from Studio Katia

Sidenote: Its darn cold here today - not compared to the eastern provinces here in Canada, still, cold enough with a brisk wind chill factor happening that I was FORCED to stay inside and craft today ;)

Wishing You Peace

Goodness, far too long to make a card, even sweeter now that I know I get to create and post the same challenges as my Sis (Nina) and SIL (Judy

This week’s Freshly Made Sketches 373 inspires and I decided to include a few items I’ve not had an opportunity to use yet.  I started with a nice solid Neenah columns card base – I save these for projects with a “white space” background as the paper is so pleasing.  First I stamped “Wishing You Peace” from Gina K ‘Peaceful Roses” clear stamps.   I diecut this Spellbinders Flower Box out of the leftovers of a sheet of Bo Bunny “a gift of love” designer paper.  I chose some pretty ribbons in pinks and glued them diagonally across the card.   I cut a plain panel for the bottom leaving it longer on each side, adding a double layer of foam tape in the middle, then folding each end under and neat to the edges of the flower box I tacked it to the card base over the ribbons -  (the double foam in the middle makes the flower box “wow” out in the center.  My final touch is a pretty crystal pinkish heart!
