I have been making lots of little gift tags & wine bottle tags that I will share over the next few days. I’m trying to keep things simple on these tags and Mama Elephant stamps have great, small images – especially the Nursery Deco set.

Alright, thats all tonight! Sorry for the sporadic and short posts lately – more PL and cards to come sometime soon!

PTI Stamp-a-Faire Limited Ingredients Challenge

Hey friends!

Well, I’m in the final run up to a fair this weekend, so I am currently working like a crazy woman trying to get things made. But, I really wanted to take a quick time out to participate in at least 1 of the PTI Stamp-a-Faire challenges. I was drawn to the limited ingredients challenge as I didn’t have a lot of time to spare. I also used a sketch from another challenge as inspiration (again – needed all the help I could get today!).

I’ve been so inspired by the DT’s (and other challenge participants) use of Mini Blooms & Bigger Blooms – I love these sets, but never really put them to good use. So, I challenged myself to use them today – I really love the result. And, I NEVER use Melon Berry. I don’t dislike it, but for some reason it is never calling to me from my shelves! Glad I gave it a try though as I love the finished look.
Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy all the fun stuff going on in blog world!

Happy Day

Hey all! Cannot believe it is Friday already! And nearly the end of August – ahhh!!! I have so much to do at the moment, so I’m going to keep this short & sweet. I put together this simple card for a card kit – really quick & easy thanks to some fun October Afternoon chipboard, washi tape & Mister Huey’s.

10 Minute Craft Dash #24

Hey friends! I can’t believe it is time for another 10 Minute Craft Dash. It was such a great birthday celebration – thanks to everyone who joined in the festivities. Hopefully you’re inspired now to take on the challenge because there is a new color combo today and it is gorgeous!

 And, we have a great sponsor – Gossamer Blue is giving their August Bits & Pieces kit to one lucky winner! This is an amazing prize!!!

Onto today’s card – this took me the whole 10 minutes – I was glueing down my last heart as the timer went off. I’m not sure what made this card so much more time consuming, but I know I did waste a good 30 seconds, if not more, trying to get a heart out of the die cut! And in the rush of the card, I lost the little bike basket stamp – eeek! I’m sure it will turn up soon though ;-)

Thats all for me today – and a quick apology for my sporadic posting at the moment – life is crazy as I’m preparing for a big craft fair and an upcoming trip back home to the states. I will be posting more Project Life and other projects as soon as I am able!

A Blog Named Hero challenge – Victorious Vellum

Hey there!

Today is my last guest post at A Blog Named Hero – it has been great to be a guest – such great girls full of inspiration! I’m sharing a card for the new challenge – to use vellum. Vellum is definitely the come-back kid of 2013! I used vellum back in the day when I started scrapbooking, but it started gathering dust until recently.

I colored the vellum with Copics and punched out circles. Because the vellum is colored, I was able to run it through a Zyron without the adhesive showing through. I added a stamped sentiment, patterned paper and stapled on some twine. This is a super easy card and gets you a lot more mileage from clear vellum.
Make sure to check out the rest of the DT inspiration and join in the fun. There is a great Simon Says Stamp gift certificate up for grabs too!

10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Bash!

Hello and welcome to a very special day!! Today is the 1st birthday of the 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge - and there is a big celebration! You should have arrived here from the blog of the incredibly talented Nina Yang.

Birthday

For my card, I cut a triangle pattern background from my Silhouette. I temporarily adhered it to a sheet of 4″ x 5 1/4″ white cardstock and got inky with sponge daubers and Distress Inks. The sentiment is heat embossed in black on vellum and wrapped around the panel. I added some coordinating sequins, popped it up on a kraft card base & called it a day! Super easy, but bold & graphic. It did take me nearly the whole 10 minutes – finished just in time at 9 minutes, 57 seconds.

Thanks so much for stopping by – your next stop is the super sweet and talented Kelly Marie Alvarez! Enjoy the hop & be sure to play along! If you lose your way along the hop, check out the full list at Pretty Pink Posh.
