Pinterest inspired cards...

Good Morning!

Like most people, I have a Pinterest account and a ton of pins of cards that I like, or would like to make.  I've had this card pinned for a long time and this summer bought the spellbinders die used for this, Fleur de Elegance.  The card was made by Cathy over at Sew Creative.  I LOVE this card!!


I ended up making two cards, each a little different.  I used Heartfelt Creations paper.  The second one I made because I had found an image I had cut out a while back and didn't end up using then.

This is the first card...



This is the 2nd card, with the printed image...

Good Morning!

I played along with Tuesday Morning Sketches this week.  It was funny how this card came about, it has to be the fastest card I've ever made!

The sketch...

 I couldn't decide on what size the squares/diamonds should be, I cut them out on two pieces of card stock I've had for years.  (That way I wouldn't mind when I tossed them out.)  I had the patterned paper on my desk that I wanted to use already.  I just grabbed the butterfly image to make sure the size would work and my card was "born".  :)

I don't do square cards because they cost more to mail, so I made this a 5 x 7 card.

Final Mojo Monday

Good Morning,

I'm very sad to say this will be my final Mojo Monday post.  I've only been playing along a few years, but this has been the best sketch site (for me and how I craft) that I've found so far.  I'll still play along with Tuesday Morning Sketches, but it's just not the same.  (Good, but made mostly for stampers)  I'm happy Julee will be able to spend more time with her family, I completely understand why she's stopping the website and I'm happy for her.

Final sketch...

I made 3 Father's Day cards with this sketch...



If anyone knows of another sketch site similar to Mojo Monday, I would love to hear about it.  Good Luck with everything Julee, you will be missed!

Good Morning!

Mojo Monday has another fun sketch up this week.

The sketch...
My take on it...

It's been a while since I've used Glossy Accents, so after I added stickles to the butterfly, I added a coat of glossy accents to the butterfly.

Good Morning!

I played with Mojo Monday today.  I love this sketch, it's perfect for those larger images.

The sketch...
My take on it...

I'll probably do another card for this week.  While the card turned out much better in person, I wasn't that happy about it not matching up to the sketch as well as it could have it.  Not to mention it's a great reason to "have" to make another card.  :)

Have a great day!

Hi!

I've made it a point to spend more time in my craft room this week, so I played along with Tuesday Morning Sketches today!  They have such a fun sketch this week, I can see myself using this one over and over.

The sketch...
My take on it...


It's so gloomy out today, the pictures did not turn out well.  The tag says Always and Forever, so it's the perfect card to send to a friend in Texas.

Mojo Monday

Good Morning!

I'm not sure where this went, but it left without me.  :)  I made my card for this week's, (actually last weeks now) Mojo Monday and forgot to post it.

Good Morning again :)

I played along with TuesdayMorningSketches this week also!  For this sketch I was able to use a sheet from my new Heartfelt Creations paper.

The sketch...
My take on it...

I also made another card with my new paper and Spellbinders die that has nothing to do with the sketch, I just thought I would post it here.  :)


Mojo Monday #494

Good Morning!

I made several cards this week, 4 for the Mojo Monday sketch.  I had a really hard time with this sketch at first, which was weird because I have several new packs of Heartfelt Creations paper that I couldn't wait to use!  It wasn't until I realized that this sketch was better suited (for me) to scrap paper.

The sketch...
When I pulled out my matching K&Company paper packs and started going through the scraps that I had, 4 cards came together very quickly!

Mojo Monday #490

Good Morning!

Mojo Monday has a new sketch this week AND on The Verve Blog there is a freebie posted here for the digi I used on my card.

The sketch...
My take on it...

a close up of the digi from the Verve Blog.  It's harder to see, but I added stickles around the word Light and under the word coffee.  Honestly, I'm not sure I can make a card without stickles on it somewhere.  :)
