Butterfly Hugs

Butterfly Hugs

Butterfly HugsI was cleaning in my craft room the other day, and just realized the sheer magnitude of all the stuff that I – a. Never use   b. Forgot I had  c. Am saving for the right project

I’m going to attempt to use some of it…Bit by bit :) I’m not sure if I ever used these Kaiser Craft stamps before, but they are beautiful!! I stamped and embossed them, then cut them out with a Nelly Snellen circle die.  I got a HUGE pack of black and white paper a few years ago…Many coordinating prints that I’ve turned to once in a while, but not as often as the package size warrants!  I cut a few circles out of a few of the patterns, then stamped and embossed a small LDRS sentiment on another plain circle.  After gluing them down on the background paper, I saw that some definition was needed!  As it was too late to mat them, I used 2 different size dies to make frames for each circle :) This was all the card needed.  As CAS as I get!!

I’d like to enter these challenges with this card:

Hello there!! I’m here today with my post for the latest ATG challenge at Creative Fingers.  The new year brings with it some new sponsors for our challenges, along with old favorites :)  For this fortnights challenge we have 2 sponsors:

Crafts and Me

http://www.craftsandme.co.uk/

and Wink Wink Ink

Angel CatI was given Angel Kitty to work with, and I was so excited, as this is the first time I’ve used a Wink Wink Ink image :) I was hoping that my new Prismacolor Pencils would arrive by the time I did this card, but they didn’t, so I colored it up with my SN markers, and added definition with my existing colored pencils.  Pet sympathy cards are so hard to make, as I am an animal lover, and know how hard it is to lose a fur baby.  But, I also appreciate it when others share in my grief, so I make sure I have a few sympathy cards on hand.  I incorporated rainbows with the background paper, and cut some clouds, freehand, for the kitty to rest on.  A sentiment that was cut with my Cricut, and a few gems finish this card off.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

SUYP Cat Lovers Challenge – #14 Furrything Goes

Country View Challenges – January ATG

Digistamps4Joy Challenge – ATG #132 with optional twist “All About Love”

Leaf Sympathy

Fall Thoughts

Hi there!! This is a rather late post for this weeks challenge over at Come and Get It Challenges.  We have the theme of “Fall” – although it is cold, and snowy and slippery here :(   But it will go away….to early for winter lol.  We also have the fabulous Eureka Stamps as a sponsor, who has such a great selection at their store, you will be spoiled for choice, if you are the lucky winner!!  The DT has come up with some gorgeous projects, so stop by and be inspired :)

Leaf SympathyI was given the Leaf Background image from our sponsor to use for my card.  I had so much fun coloring these leaves, and experimenting with some different color blends with my SN markers!! I kept it to a simple design, using triple time stamping, and just adding a quick sentiment strip and a few enamel dots :)
