PTI March Blog Hop

I have been so very bad with my craft supplies for quite a while. They are very cherished but much neglected. Stamp-a-faire was months ago and I hadn't even opened my stamp sets. They were finally taken out of their boxes and put to use for the March 2016 Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink. I made a feel good card for someone at work.


I water colored a stitched circle and used the Fashion Sense stamp set to make this easel card. I also added some vellum over the image to tone down the water colors.

A Budding Friendship


Oh I have been having so much FUN with some happy mail that came a little while ago.

These 4 cards were so simple to make and they are all perfectly aligned because of my
"MISTI"

From my very first project it was true love.
This tool is truly the "Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented".


Supplies used:
"A Budding Friendship" stamp set from Close to My Heart
Laces from 3 Girl JAM
"Thanks" die from The Stamps of Life August card kit club
and of course
"MISTI" from My Sweet Petunia

Reach for the Stars

I don't think that I have used my embossing paste since Stamp-a-faire and here again they are being used for another Papertrey Ink challenge.....
 This craft room of mine needs a serious purge session so that some of those neglected items can come out again.

Very seldom do I make something to keep for myself but this easel card is going to sit above my desk to keep reminding me to strive for more and never give up.
Papertrey Ink Supplies used:
Miscellaneous Supplies:
DecoArt Dimensional effects texture paste
Paper Studio cardstock

Happy Birthday Spinner

At work we have a couple of groups that meet to sew, bead and have fun with other crafts. I have been making quite a few cards for their birthdays. Most of the birthday's I know but there are always those that take me by surprise so I like to have a few on hand just for those times.
 I used the spinner die to cut a circle in the front and covered it with acetate. This makes the arrow spin more freely.

Camera Shaker

Shaker cards are so popular right now and I can totally see why. The last shaker I made was over 2 years ago and I forgot exactly how much fun they are.

I cut the lens out of this camera and replaced it with acetate, added some glass beads and bam you have the cutest dang shaker stand up card ever.
