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.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mail Valentine – Matchup with a Twist #1

It’s my first creation of 2016!

 

I decided to restart my Matchup challenge and I’ve added a twist for each one.  Today’s Matchup is Sugar Pea Designs and WRMK paper with a twist of accent dies (I used a Taylored Expression tag die). All supplies will be listed in a list below.

 

This card is also for the SugarSketch 35 at Sugar Pea Designs. I decided to create a Valentine card since I’m just a teeny bit tired of Christmas cards.

 

2016 Card 1 - SPD Happy Mail

 

I used some newer WRMK paper called Crush and the Sugar Pea Designs Happy Mail stamp set. One of my goals that I forgot to list earlier is to have my cards be finished and ready to mail. So I continued the sentiment from the front to the inside and stamped the two hearts included in the stamp set.
