Add A Sentiment

Hello again....2 posts  in 2 days!!!  It may never happen again LOLS 😊.  So when I don't have enough time to sit down and make a complete project I will tackle smaller pieces.  Sometimes I will create background pieces, stamp out a bunch of images to color or simply sit down and color pieces.  That way when I get to spend some time in my craft room I can just pull out all the pieces and make something.  This is a card I made that works well for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Add A Sentiment.

For this card I used patterned paper from an old Bo Bunny 6" paper collection called Head Over Heels.  I cut the Love sentiment out on the Cricut Explore Air 2 as well as the hearts.  For the glitter heart I covered the paper with a double sided sticker sheet first and then added some glitter ritz ultra fine red glitter.  I had originally cut the greeting out of pink card stock but decided it need to be darker so I colored it with some copic markers and popped it up with foam tape.  I added a few rhinestones in top corner for a little more bling.

I guess that is all the details for this cards....will try and return with another project soon.  Hopefully it won't take a few months 😊

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting

Frame It!

Well my plan from October obviously failed, but oh well!  I have had some crafting time recently and been working on a bunch of different things.  As well, over the last year I have made a few purchases of items for my craft studio and some new supplies.  I will post more about those that I actually have time to post again.

First though I thought I might do a challenge or two to get me to actually post 😊

The first place I always go when I am looking for a craft challenge is over to the Simon Says Stamp challenge blogs.  They are always so much fun and provide so much fabulous inspiration!  This weeks Monday challenge is Frame It and I made a card that works well for this challenge.

The cute little character in the middle is from the Legendary stamp set by Kindred Stamps and I colored it with Copic markers.  I did a few accents with a gold marker & a rhinestone on the crown.  The green frame piece (from the Antiquities card cartridge) was cut on my Cricut Explore Air 2   (one of those new pieces I was talking about 😃 ).  This is a nice simple card that can be used for many occasions.

Ok, that's it for now,  back to crafting and see what pieces I have that I can put together for another card.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting everyone.
