Stamping Royalty 2013 – Hello Card

Hello everyone! I am working hard to get my assignments done for next month and probably will not post anything new until next Thursday, Oct 31 for Avery Elle Inspiration Blog Hop. So I popped in to share the card that got me into Stamping Royalty 2013 – Hello Category. I was inspired by the folk art trend and a cute flower wreath photo Cath shared over Moxie Fab World (Sorry, I don’t remember which post it was…). I love challenges and contests when I can use any products I want to mix and match.

Tag-Card Sketches

Hello everyone! I hope that your weekend is going well? I will be on travel next week so I have been running errands all weekend. Just wanted to let you know that I have set up a Products page for my stamp and die sets. It still needs work but I must have something now to keep everything in one place. Most importantly, you can linkup your projects there! Can’t wait to see your takes! I have also invited some friends to help me develope the Tag-Card Sketches for Simply Tags: Everyday. They will pop up over the next few weeks and I will put them all in a thumbnail collection on the Products page as well. Something like this: I used mostly patterned paper on my card but I think it would be fun to punch out circles to create the pattern. Or use stamps to create a similar […]

RIC #36 – Aren’t You Lovely Card

Hello everyone! It’s time for another Runway Inspired Challenge! Looks like triangles are going to stick around for a while? It’s been my favorite trend since the chevron! I started with a gold foil triangle on kraft paper, rubbed on the sentiment and went over the black lines with a white gel pen to make the sentiment stand out. Gold, dot, chevron, monogram and tiny floral pattern? This card makes me happy! I had so fun playing with this week’s challenge, I hope that you can join us too! There is no product requirements, just be inspired and play!

RIC #35 – Hello Chica Card

Hello everyone! It is time for another Runway Inspired Challenge. I was inspired by the strip and dot patterns as well as the pop of pink and yellow green. I also liked the shining dots on her scarf so I used sequins on my card. Seeing colored rustic twine on Cristina’s card here reminded me to use mine on this card. I left the cord longer than usual like what she did. The label maker I used to make the sentiment is only $2.75 at 2Ps right now (linked below). I used a die for the leaves but you can just use your punches or hand cut them. I had so fun playing with this week’s challenge, I hope that you can join us too! There is no product requirements, just be inspired and play! Click on over to see what other ladies on the DT have come up with […]
