A crowd of critters!

Another quick blog post today. I’m crazy getting ready to head to the states soon for some family time and my to do list is long & getting longer!

I am lucky enough to have lots of Lawn Fawn stamps and can’t seem to find time to play with that many of them. But, I decided to make a card using a whole lot of them just to spread some inky love!

So, this little cutie is for the twine challenge over at Wee Memories & also the current Hero Arts challenge. The background Hero Arts stamp was from a super generous prize package I received from them – thanks so much Hero Arts! This card is also very kid-friendly, so I’m entering into the current Simon Says Stamp challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!

More baby cards…

Hi everyone!

Another baby girl card to share today. I got to use some yummy October Afternoon paper on this creation – I do loooove their papers. This card is for the current challenge over at Wee Memories, which is ‘Source of Inspiration.’

I picked up Paper Crafts Color Inspiration for Card Makers for this challenge – every page of this magazine is full of wonderful goodness – I could probably CASE something from each and every page. For this challenge, however, I chose the layout from Maile Belle’s card on page 139 and even used the same sentiment (as I needed a baby card!). I loved the use of twine and the cut off label so incorporated that as well.

Obviously, babies are very special someones, so this card is also for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

Card details: 
Cardstock: Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Fly a Kite (October Afternoon)

More Valentine’s Day fun

Hi Everyone!
Hope you all had lovely weekends – went too fast for me as usual and not very much time to get inky! Oh well – hopefully I’ll find a spare minute sometime this week.
I did come up with a few Valentine’s Day Cards for friends & I thought I’d share them. 
I have been really keen to ink up my new Lawn Fawn goodies and they are so fun! The first one is more of a ‘scene’ than I usually create (thus being entered into the Passion for Papertrey challege!). 
The next one is inspired by a card in the Paper Craft’s Color Inspiration for Card Makers magazine that featured a string of hearts – I loved the idea for Valentine’s Day. Here is my take:
Finally used my new Papertrey Ink Heart Prints die & also my Tiny Attacher – what fun!
