Spiderman Inspired birthday card

Hello!

 

My nephew, Kaleb, turned 6 last Friday. This year’s theme was Spiderman! After cutting spider webs in different sizes for his friend birthday party a few weeks ago, I decided to go through my stash and figure out how to make a Spiderman card without buying anything. I am happy to say I succeeded!

 

 

I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the background, added a few spiders that had been cut with the webs, a number die cut and a sentiment. It came together pretty easy!

 

Project 14/365

Supplies~

Stamps: SU Number of Years

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

CS: SU Real Red, Dapper Denim, Whisper White

Other: Sizzix Texture Fades Halloween Words & Cobwebs set by Tim Holtz, spiders from Taylored Expressions dies, SU Large Number Framelits, dimensionals

Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July!

 

I created two patriotic cards to share today. I’ve had these Taylored Expressions stamps in my stash for awhile now. I finally dusted them off yesterday and inked them up for the first time using Tim Holtz distress markers.

 

 

 

I hope everyone celebrating today has a safe and fun day!

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!
