Hey everyone! Hope your weeks are all off to a good start. I have a super quick card to share today using the mirror stamping technique that was covered in the Clean & Simple Card Making Class. I used some sweet Lawn Fawn animals to give this a try. I was definitely inspired by this sweet card Chari made using these adorable cows.
This card is also for the Passion for Papertrey Valentine’s Day Challenge. I’ll be back later sharing a similar card with slightly different motifs. Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Friday everyone!
I had a request from someone recently for an engagement card and realized I’ve never come across a ‘Congratulations on your engagement’ sentiment in any stamp set — has anyone else? It is very common in the UK to send engagement cards — and I’ve lived here long enough that I can’t remember if this is done in the states — is it?!?! Anyway, its on my *wish list* of sentiments…
So, onto the task at hand – this card is for Make It Mondays – Glitter Strips with Scor-tape and also the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop as I was able to use this lovely scalloped circle from Limitless Layers. I was definitely inspired by Dawn’s card in the video and already had my sites set on using this mat stack frame for the card as it is perfect for a wedding theme! The card says ‘Congratulations’ and it is a little hard to see in the picture, but fine in person!
The colors are inspired by the current Totally Hues Challenge over at the lovely Heather’s blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

Here is the first card – the sketch is based on the current challenge over at Clean & Simple Stamping – sketch 124 – and the colors are for the Neutrals Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World Challenge. This ‘ribbon vase’ is much better in real life! As I definitely freed my creativity on this one, I’m also entering into the current challenge at Wee Memories.

Another quick post tonight – lots to catch up on before the week begins…
I wanted to play along with the current sketch over at Mojo Monday. I never seem to make it in time for this one, but pulled it off today! I chose the colors based on the Monochramatics Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week over at Moxie Fab World. I do like pink & use it quite a bit, but never THIS much and it was definitely a big challenge for me. As the colors are definitely outside of my comfort zone, I’ll also going to enter this into the current ‘Out of Your Comfort Zone’ challenge over at the lovely A Passion for Papertrey. I am not crazy about all that pink, but oh well – its very sweet & girly for Valentine’s Day. Its hard to see in the picture, but the small square of pink cardstock is shimmery in real life…
