For You



I am sharing a card I made earlier today for a sketch swap. I went with a floral theme since I am anxiously awaiting spring and the start of pretty flowers blooming.



I used Blooms and Wishes from Stampin’ Up! along with one of my favorite dies, the wonky stitched rectangle from MFT Stamps. I finished the card off with two glitter enamel dots for the small flower centers.


I am entering my card in the Spring challenge at Sweet Stampin.


Thanks for stopping by!

Zoo Babies Congratulations



In my neverending quest to use my stash, I still have a lot of matchup lists and personal challenges to work through. I used the random number generator to put together a monthly list of different challenges to work on.


Today’s card is a Stampin’ Up card using Zoo Babies and SCS Card Sketch 675. I am linking this card to the New Beginnings challenge at Animal Friends. Perfect challenge for this stamp set.



Here is the sketch I used ~

Good morning!


Here is the other card I made yesterday using Foxy Friends. I really like how this one came out!


I used a couple papers from the Wood Textures DSP pack and embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.



The images were stamped and then cut out with my Scan N Cut. Instead of adding a sentiment, I decided to add some linen thread.


Have a great day!

I’m back after almost a 3 week hiatus. My lingering cough from the bronchitis is *almost* gone, but allergies have still kicked my butt on an ongoing basis. This spring/summer has been brutal for me.


Anyways, back to 30 in 30….no way am I going to catch up at this point! I used my last early release Friday for crafting. First time I haven’t had things to do after work all summer.


Since I was feeling rusty, I decided to pick something from one of my many lists, on today’s Stampin’ Up! list was Foxy Friends. This set hadn’t been inked up before today so I made 2 cards! I have plans for a couple more but stopped for dinner and now it’s baseball time!


I chose the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments to showcase my little fox friend.


The color combination is also from my list: Melon Mambo, Cajun Craze and Sahara Sand. I never would have paired the Melon Mambo and Cajun Craze without my list. I really like it! The fox and tree stump were cut out with my Scan N Cut. I am trying to make better use of it since it mostly collects dust!


Here is the sketch~


Have a great night!
