One for the Guys

Hello everyone! Have you had a chance to stop by the Sisterhood today? The challenge this week is to make a project for a special guy in your life. Both of my sons-in-law have birthdays coming up in March, so I decided to get started on cards for them. My project today is for my son-in-law, Josh, since he loves being near the water. I started with  white cardstock for the base. The designer paper is from DCWV's Natural Stack. The Vintage Compass stamp is from Stampabilities and the Lighthouse stamp is from Stampendous. Both were stamped with Encore Ultimate Metallic Copper Ink onto Ivory cardstock then layered on a Nestibilities scalloped oval mat using copper metallic cardstock by DCWV. Natural colored hemp was wrapped around the card three times and tied into a knot.

The sisters have some wonderful projects for inspiration, so why not stop by and play along?

Have a great day!

Belated Valentines Day

Hello Everyone! Today I want to share a couple of Valentine Cards with you. I was asked to demo card making to a garden club last Tuesday evening. Unfortunately, due to the weather and illness the program was cancelled. Here are the cards I was planning on sharing with the group.

Card 1

I cased this card from one I found on pinterest. I don't know who the original pinner was, so if you recognize this card layout, please let me know so I can give due credit. 

Card 2

Both card were created with white cardstock as the base. I used the swirled embossing folder on the panel and the hearts on Card 1. Red paper is SU Real Red and designer paper is from DCWV's  Valentine pad. The sentiment is a See Dees stamp.

For Card 2, I used white cardstock for the base, a red doily heart for the frame and Nestibilities Swiss Dot embossing folder  for the heart. The hearts on the center of heart panel were found at a local craft store and ribbon for both cards were found at a local discount store, The sentiment is the same as for Card 1. Heart punches were used to cut hearts for both cards.

Thank you for stopping by today. Hope to visit with you again soon.

Love Is In The Air

Good morning! Once again I forgot to post my project for the sisterhood challenge. For this challenge, "Love is in the Air",  we would like to see your creations of love. Your project could be valentines, wedding, anniversary, etc. I found the image at The Warehouse of Hobby Images and thought it would be perfect for an anniversary card. White cardstock was used for the card base. The background paper and blue panel are from the Tres Chic Stack by DCWV. I used one of my Nestabiity dies to cut the image panel and the small oval punch for the sentiment. The flowers were found in the wedding department of a local craft store and then I added pearls to the upper right hand corner to balance everything.

Why not join in the fun? Hop on over to the sisterhood for more inspiration. 

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Crafting!
