Just Because

Welcome friends. For today's card, I started by heat embossing the large floral image and then blending one color of distress ink over it, trying to have a deeper color in the center. After I was done with my ink blending, I took a cloth and buffed off the embossed area to remove any extra ink.

I used the super fun Wonky Stitches die set from Avery Elle to add the stitching background to the card front. I just love the look it gives. I then added a thin black mat and stamped my sentiment.

Do you remember this card that I posted a few weeks ago? Well I wanted to make another cheater easy card so I pulled out some different papers, a couple of dies and went to work. And there you have it, another super easy card.

Thanks for stopping by friends. Have a wonderful day!

Hello for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Hi friends -- I'm so glad you stopped by today. Today's card features some fun stamp sets from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I first started out by doing some ink blending on the background. I then used my Misti to stamp the tree image from the Into the Woods set. My sentiment comes from the Happy Hello set and is popped up on foam tape. 

It's a pretty simple card but I'm happy with how it turned out. As always, thanks for your visit. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Last post for The Challenge Guest Design Spot

It's the last Monday of the month which means it's time for my last guest design spot with the ladies from The Challenge blog. I want to thank Kim again for inviting me and to all the other ladies on the team.

This week, there is a beyond adorable inspiration photo to help get you inspired. I was immediately drawn to those adorable monsters so I immediately thought of the Monster Mash set from Lawn Fawn. I already had the background paper done from another project and wanted to use it. I added a black die cut tree using an MFT die and then made a grassy hillside and added my monsters. I couldn't help but add some googly eyes on the one-eyed monster.

I love the way this card turned out and will mail it off next month to a friend for Halloween.

Here are the Copic markers I used

Supplies not linked:  Tree die from MFT - retired

Merry Christmas

Welcome friends. I've got a cute Christmas card to share with you today for the new anything goes challenge at Christmas Card Challenges

I stamped the cutie patootie polar bear and then colored him in with some real light grey Copics. I created by night sky by die cutting the super fun Snowy Backdrop die from Lawn Fawn. I then used my distress inks to create the look, blending in a few colors together. Lastly, I gave it a spritz of some Picket Fence distress spray as well as a spray of Perfect Pearls.

Thanks so much for dropping by today. I truly appreciate it.
