MIM Sympathy Card

This weeks MIM challenge is to create a sympathy card.  I made two, one can be for a female and the other for a male.

For this card I used ocean tides cardstock and ran it thru my Cuttlebug using the linen/canvas impression plate and attached it to a vintage cream card base.  I added some vintage cream grograin ribbon behind my focal image.

For the focal image I stamped a leaf from the Leaf Print stamp set in ocean tides ink then embossed the vine image with some silver embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages stamped in smokey shadow ink.  I used some foam pop dots to attached it to my card.

This next card is set up the same way except I used melon berry cardstock and ink, the diamonds impression plate and gold embossing powder.

These are very simple and quick to make, in case you need one in a pinch.

PTI May 2011 Blog Hop

Welcome to the PTI Blog Hop where this months challenge is flowers.

I created a flower out of ribbon.  I used the new Glubers by Cosmo Cricket to create this rolled flower from 1 1/2" inch wide ribbon (sorry, I forgot to measure the length of the ribbon before I started making the flower).  I die cut some spring moss cardstock with the Delightful Dahlia leaves to adhere behind the flower and hot glued some pearls I purchased in the jewelry section at Joann's in the center.

I attached the flower to a piece of  white cardstock die cut from a nesties die and stamped with a sentiment from Birthday Basics in black ink.  I used a white card base and attached the patterned paper by Paper Salon then added a strip of rasberry frizz cardstock that was impressed with the Basic Backgrounds Diamond impression plate.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

Hello from the heart

Hello Everyone!!!

I know, long time no post. Sorry about that, I have been playing in my happy room but I just have not had the extra time to post anything here on the old blogaroony.  But I'm here today to show you a little number I made the other day.

I just love this paper from Crate Paper.  I wanted to pull some of the colors from the floral part so I made a card base from aqua mist cardstock, the yellow checked is the back side of the floral.  I die cut a piece of  pure poppy bitty dot paper with the Mat Stack 3 die. I also die cut a piece of aqua mist cardstock with the eyelet lace border die.  I stamped the sentiment from vintage picnic in black ink and added the cute little bumble bee from the Tag It #3 set.

The flower is made from some white muslin and the leaves are die cut from some new leaf cardstock with the Sending You leaf dies. Before attaching everything to the card base, I added some lace for a bit of a vintage look.  The focal image is attached using some foam pop dots.

I'm hoping to post some more projects this weekend, so until then, thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.
