Creative Knockouts #281 - In Stitches

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #283!  Our theme this week is  "In Stitches" and our sponsor is Crafty Sentiments. 

I chose to work with a stamp set called "Stanley Heart Balloons". He was just too sweet to pass up!

Here is what I created:

I had some PhotoPlay Valentine card kits on hand and thought it was a perfect base for this sweet little guy!  I colored him up with TwinTouch Markers and added some faux stitching around the edges. 

I hope to see you at the challenge! :)

Until next time,

Ninabrook January 2019

Hello friends!

I have my January Showcase for Ninabrook Papercrafting to share with you today!

For this month’s kit, I used the Kaisercraft Limelight Bundle! It's filled with tons of pretty & fresh greens. I was super inspired! I created 3 mini cards, 2 A2 Sized Cards, one round 5” Round Card and a single page layout!  I even still had supplies leftover!! 

I did “borrow” some leftover supplies from my January Card Kit (flower, flat backed pearls) along with some brads, buttons, ribbon scraps and sequins from my stash.  It was a great “stash-buster” opportunity to embellish my cards! 

The stamps I chose were from Close to My Heart.

Here is what I created:

A2 Standard Card

And here is my layout:

I hope you enjoy my projects and it inspires you to create your own this month with this gorgeous bundle!  Have fun creating!

Scrapy Land Challenge #106

Hello friends!

Welcome to Scrapy Land {Challenge #106}!

I'm very excited to share my project with you.  This week, I created a handmade card.

I used the following dies to create this card:
Cheapo Dies - Flower Doily
Cheapo Dies - Flower Doily

Memory Box - Poppy (but you could use either this ONE or this ONE)

I used Nuvo Craft Perfect Mirror Cardstock & CTMH Black Cardstock to cut my diecut images from.  Crystal Drops in Copper & Raspberry embellished this card perfectly!  A simple sentiment was all it needed I thought.

The theme is always ANYTHING GOES using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  In addition, we have TWO WINNERS for each challenge.  One will be a random winner and the other is chosen by the Design Team.  Each winner will receive a generous $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.

Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so chances are you have a few of the brands in your stash!  You can see all the brands carried under the Products category.

Please link back to this Scrapy Land Challenge and include the link to this challenge on your blog post.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project.  (Sometimes we can't tell if an item is a die cut or chipboard.)

We can't wait to see what you create! 

Good luck!

See you next time!
