Cute Card Thursday - Family

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Family'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I used this adorable Grow a little Love FREEBIE digital stamp from Tiddly Inks Stamps, to make a wedding anniversary card for my parents.


I printed the flower border and sentiment directly onto the back ground paper.
I then printed the flower border onto patterned cardstock and paper pieced this on top of the original image.
The sentiment is from Desert Diva's blog.
A little hand stitching and matching patterned border finished this simple CAS style card off. 

We are sponsored this week by AliciaBel.com, a great prize as always! 
Hope you can join us! See you there!

Thanks for looking!
Happy crafting :-)

Whimsy Stamps 'Penguin & Bear'

This is one of April's new releases of Clear & Rubber Stamps at the Whimsy Stamps store!
I used this adorable image called 'Penguin & Bear' by Crissy Armstrong.


I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils.
The sentiment is from the Scripty Occasions clear stamp set, which I stamped and then heat embossed to make it stand out on the colored patterned paper.
The papers are from Simple Stories 'Bloom & Grow' collection.

 


You have just got to see what the rest of the Whimsy Rubber Team Designer Divas have created with the stamps, dies and stencils. Go check out the Whimsy Stamps & Inspiration Facebook Page and leave them a little love. 

Happy Crafting!

MFT Sketch Challenge #329

I just love this adorable die from My Favorite Things - Die-namics Roses in Bloom.


I also used the current sketch #329:


I flipped the sketch upside down.

I die cut the rose from the white cardstock and then backed it in the red and green, making sure to keep hold of the rose detail to add back on top.
I used the 'Springtime Blooms' stamp set for the sentiment, which I heat embossed in white.
A few die cut hearts and drawn on stitching finishes the card off!




Thanks for looking!

CAS-ual Fridays Sketch Challenge #172 - Color Challenge


I LOVE this color combo! 

I used the RAD 2 Stamp Set to stamp onto the navy cardstock.
I used Versamark's watermark stamp and then heat embossed in white.
The pink paper is form Echo Park's 'Everyday Eclectic' collection.
A little twine finishes the card off!

I am entering this card into the current challenge on the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog.

MFT Color Challenge #67

I've just received my MFT goodies and had to play!!
This week's color challenge on the My Favorite Things blog (#67) was a selection of orange, blue & yellow:


Here is the card I made, inspired by the color combo:


I used the Die-namics snow drifts border die for the edges and hand pierced the holes to match.
I then used 'Springtime Blooms' stamps for the flowers in 2 shades of orange ink from color box.
The sentiment is also from the 'Springtime Blooms' stamp set, which I stamped using Versamark's watermark stamp. I than used white embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiment.
A little bakers twine finishes the card off.

Thanks for looking!

As always, we welcome your own interpretation.

I used this adorable image from this month's Clear & Rubber stamp release over at the Whimsy Stamps store - 'Penguin Birthday Party' by Crissy Armstrong.

I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut it out.
The sentiment is from the 'Everyday Mini Sentiments' clear stamp set at Whimsy Stamps.
I used the Shaker Builder - Sweetest Birthday die set for the red frame and the stitched circle die set for a little more interest in the background.
The papers are from Simple Stories.

Hello little one...

I used this super cute digital image from Craftin' Desert Divas - 'Hello Little One'.


I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils, using the current mood board from Crafting' Desert Diva's Facebook challenge for the color combo and 'new' spring theme:



I used the current sketch from the challenge at MFT - Sketch 328 for a guide to my card design.



I used my silhouette to cut out the heart from the background, which I then backed with vellum. I used washi tape from my stash for the diagonal stripe at the back.


I am entering this card into April's mood challenge on Crafting' Desert Diva's Facebook page and the sketch (328) challenge on the MFT blog.
