May 1st creation

Happy May!

 

I am hoping to resume my daily “matchup” card that I dropped the ball on way back in January.

 

Today’s challenge: Papertrey Ink stamps + Sassafrass Lass paper + shaker card

 

2016 Card 51 - Papertrey Ink On My Couch

 

I forgot how hard shaker cards are LOL.  I avoid them even though I took a class in last year making them from a kit (that I still haven’t finished…ha).   I made two mistakes with this one – forgetting to ground my images and not adding enough sequins.   I do like how it turned out but there is definitely room for improvement on the next one. To add a little pizzazz, I paper pieced the lamp shade, chair and pillow. This is still one of my favorite techniques in crafting!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Cowgirl for The Paper Players

Howdy people!

 

Tonight I created a card for the Western theme challenge at The Paper Players.

 

I have had this never used MFT Pure Innocence Cowgirl stamp for years and knew I had to ink her up for the challenge. Isn’t she cute? 🙂

 

2016 Card 46 - MFT PI Cowgirl

 

I colored her with copics and then cut her out on my Scan N Cut. The blue banner was embossed with Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder and I used several dies from my MFT Blueprints 13 die-namics set in building my card layout.

Hello Friend – RS#196 & Matchup with a Twist #2

Hello Friend – that is the theme of today’s card 🙂

 

I used Retrosketches #196 and for my Matchup – Taylored Expressions stamps, American Crafts paper and the twist: background dies.  I didn’t have any TE background dies that went well with my card so I pulled out an MFT Cover Up die.

 

2016 Card 2 - TE Lets Chat

 

The stamp set I used is called Let’s Chat and I used the coordinating die to cut out the telephone.  The telephone dial was punched out with a Creative Memories circle punch.  I used American Crafts Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic paper…not really a favorite of mine but hey I bought it, so I need to use it! That’s what I like about my matchup challenge. It’s forcing me away from my favorite go to items and to dig in my stash for other things.
