With Sympathy….

It’s time again for the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge on Crafting Circle.Com.  For the month of October our DT was to make a Color on Color Card.  I chose White on White.  We could add a pop of color and I chose to use Silver.

Sympathy cards are not my favorite to make but I needed one, and I just thought this would work out well. The Large Die Cut is by Die’sire from Crafters Companion and bought at Hobby Lobby.  The Banner Cut is by Hero Arts and is part of their Stamp & Cut line. It comes with two different size die Banners and an assortment of stamped sentiments to use with either banner.  I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of this set.

The Silver Paper was from my scraps. The Butterflies are made from an older Martha Stewart Punch.

Thanks, Dee.  Please come and join us this month.

A Happy “HI” to Spring…..

My second card for the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge reminds me that the warm weather is already here in my area and the wild flowers are blooming. This cute Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamp is called “Heart Ant.”

I chose to do a very simple card this time, which I’ve colored with my Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils.  I made the card base from a white heavy-duty Cardstock from Hobby Lobby and rounded the corners with my Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. I finished it by adding a few embossed lines at the bottom with my Martha Stewart Scoreboard and tying some Twine around the top to finish it off.

Come and join us and have some fun!

CHALLENGES ENTERED:

Don’t You Just Feel Terrible…

when you look at this poor little Dino? I wanted to make a card for a sick friend and thought this image from Scrappers Delight called “Draco Get Well” would be perfect. You can find him and his friends here and there’s even some Christmas images. My only problem was that I didn’t get done with the card before my sick friend got better.  Well, the thought was there and the card will be put to good use sometime in the future.  You can never have too many get well cards on hand!

Supplies:

The image was colored with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils. I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to make the lines across the bottom.  I also used the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to round the corners.
