Have a Sunny Day!

A very belated Happy New Year to you all!

If you are still here, thanks for sticking with me! I have been in a major crafty funk and decided to take an extended blogging break. I’m not sure how often I will post but since I did recently make a card, I thought I would share it.

One of my card groups does a brand swap each month. It’s one of my favorites to participate in! This month the chosen company is Taylored Expressions, a long time favorite.

 

Taylored Expressions Wildflower Bouquet

 

I used copics to color in this Wildflower Bouquet image and the paper is from Authentique. I kept the layout pretty simple to focus on the beautiful flower arrangement.

 

Have a great night!

Autumn Wreath

Hi again!

 

Here is another card I made yesterday. This one is a fall card using Taylored Expressions Autumn Wreath stamp set and Sketch #466 from Mojo Monday.

I stamped the wreath and squirrel on Taylored Expressions Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored them with Prismacolor pencils.  I then blended the images with Gamsol and fussy cut them.  All the cardstock and patterned papers (Crate Paper Farmhouse) are from an old TE Key Ingredients kit (October 2011!). Here’s to using older stash!

 

Here is the sketch~

Just Because for Share Joy Challenge

Hello!

 

I made this card on Friday and mailed it out to a friend to say hello today.  I used the sketch and tic tac toe challenge at the Share Joy Challenge.

 

I used one of my favorite summer sets from Taylored Expressions, A Day in Paradise, for the main image and sentiment. The splatters were created using a stamp from SU Gorgeous Grunge and Marina Mist ink stamped off once.

 

I chose the first line for the tic tac toe portion of the challenge – wood veneer, stitching and ink splatter.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

 

I made two cards on Friday to share today using Taylored Expressions stamps.

 

Here is the first one using Light Up the Night.  Do you see Mickey?  I didn’t even notice at first but there is a Mickey head out of the 3 big fireworks! I colored the fireworks using several Stampin’ Up! markers – Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Island Indigo and Lost Lagoon.

 

2016 Card 68 - Taylored Expressions Light Up the Night

 

The plaid paper was cut using an MFT Cover Up die – the Stitched Cover Up companion – Vertical. I added a few star brads from my stash to complete the card.

 

Here is the second card using the 4th of July Wreath.  I stamped it on a tag cut from Build a Tag #1 and colored it with copics. I added twine and a star brad from my stash to finish it off.
