Floral Sketches

Good morning!  I told you I would be back.  I was home sick with a sinus infection, yesterday.  I went to the doctor and he prescribed me an antibiotic and steroids.  Let me tell you...I came home and cleaned for a couple hours then proceeded to sit down and craft for several hours.   I can't believe the energy I had within forty-five minutes of taking the steroids.  Then I was up half the night as well. Sigh

I played along with two different challenges with this card. A color challenge and an inspirational challenge.  Links and graphics are below.

I stamped the background in the back using PTI's Tin Types, the script was stamped using Background Basics: Text Type, and the stripe is from an MFT set that is no longer available.  Those pretty flowers from one of my favorite new floral sets from PTI called Floral Sketches. Various inks were used on the flowers and leaves.  I am building my ink pad collection at the moment.  The majority of my previous work was coloring with Copics, so I didn't need too many ink pads.

Here is the gorgeous graphic for the color challenge I participated in.

And here is the pretty inspiration photo for the other challenge.

That's all I have today, but I have several other cards to post as well.  I'll be back soon!

Hello Again

Hello again!  It has been a very long time since I posted last.  I have been crafting randomly over the last two years, nothing worth blogging over.  I sold my light tent and the majority of my supplies when I moved two years ago.  I'm hoping that the photos I am getting with natural light will be suffice.  I'm open to feedback or advice for taking photos with natural light.  If I decide that I want to keep blogging, I will order another light tent.  For now, I will make do with what I have.

I made this sweet birthday card using one of my favorite PTI sets and the newer coordinating detail set, Beautiful Butterflies, and Beautiful Butterflies layers.  

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Selling my Supplies

Hello!  I have decided to sell most of my papercrafting supplies.  I don't have the time to craft and blog like I used to and I feel like my supplies are taking up space in my home that could be used otherwise.  I am going to be listing things a little at a time.

First up are my Spellbinders dies.

HERE is a link to my Pinterest with photos to all sets that I own.

Believe in the Magic of Christmas

Hello again!  I loved my MFT Poinsettia die so much that I had to use it again.  This time I used the Fusion Card Challenge and chose to work off of the sketch.

A little glitter cardstock gave my card the added sparkle I was looking for.

Season's Greetings

Wow!  It's been two months since I posted last.  To be quite honest, I haven't felt much like stamping the last several months. If it weren't for the need of some Christmas cards I would probably not have made a card. It took me a few minutes working on this card and then it all came back to me. 

I saw the sketch on the MFT blog and wanted to use my pretty Poinsettia die-namics.  I went rather simple and flat to ensure I would only need one stamp.  ;) 

SUPPLIES: *MFT must have changed all the links to their products.  None of the links take you to the product, but you can see each product I have used and search the site.

Here is the MFTWSC sketch I used for my Christmas card.

Retro Sketches 136

Two posts in one week!  Can you believe it?  School was canceled today due to a water main break outside of the building, so I decided to head to my craft room and create.  I pulled out my MFT stamps, found a sketch and color combo that inspired me, and got busy.

 No patterned papers were used on this card.  The pink chevron pattern was stamped using a patterned stamp.


Melissa always has the prettiest color palettes on her blog.  I love purple, almost as much as pink, but you can never find purple patterned papers.

Sweet Sunday Sketch 240

Hello!  I have a card to share that I made Sunday afternoon while crafting with my friend, Marsha.  She's a Stampin' Up demo and always shares her stamp goodies with me.  For this card I went with several layers on the flowers.  Let's just say that I used a good bit of foam tape.  Ha!

With the card laying down, you can see all the layers on the flowers and sweet little butterfly.  The card base is popped up using foam tape as well.

If you have any questions about the products I have used, you can give Marsha and email and she will gladly point you in the right direction.

I used the sketch at Sweet Sunday for my creation.
