If Cows Could Talk...

Hi again my friends... Thanks for stopping by!

Today I'm sharing a THANK YOU card I made for my sister (who loves farm animals):
I recently purchased the "If Cows Could Talk" stamp & die set by Taylored Expressions - this was my first time using it, and I am hooked!  I also haven't whipped my Copics out in a while, and I really missed them!  This little cow is so easy to 'color'... you'll be seeing more of him!!

I also tried my Papertrey Ink Scene It: Skyscapes die, and love how it turned out.  If I make this card again, I would probably put some grass across the bottom of the circle... floating cows are a little strange... :)

Thanks for stopping by!

About this card:
Card Base - Pure Poppy PTI Cardstock
Patterned Paper - Inaginesce (Farm Scene on the other side)
Circle Mat - PTI Basic Backer + Skyscape Die
Cow - Taylored Expressions "If Cows Could Talk"
Copics, Stickles

Somethin's Fishy...

Hello Friends!

I was given the assignment (by my husband) of making a Thank You card.  His boss took everyone from his office on a fishing trip so he needed an appropriate card for the occasion (Think manly + fishing + co-worker + thank you).  Here's what I came up with for him:
So I tried a new technique here - The waves background came from an embossing folder, but I didn't want it to fill the whole background, so I fussy-cut the top third off along the wave line - I love how it came out!  I can't wait to try this with other embossing folders/patterns on future cards :)

I used jewelry making jump rings to attach the fish to the line - it was a cute visual, but I wouldn't recommend doing that for a card you're going to mail.

I used some Glossy Accents on the fish to make them appear wet in spots:

Thanks for stopping by - Have an inspired day!

Country Chic!

Hey Everyone!

Long time no post... Life has had me hopping, which means not much scrapping :(

Luckily for me, my sister is getting married in May, and that has enabled me some crafting opportunities!  Below is a picture of the invitation I made for her upcoming bridal shower:


So, we have a Country Chic theme going on for the whole wedding, and my sister is an avid horseback rider, so we went with a 'blinged-out' horseshoe as an accent piece and as an overall theme for the shower.

I love this layout for an invite - the accent piece is totally customizable, as well as the text/print work.

Simple and Chic... right up my alley!!

Have a great day!!!

Wednesday Thanks

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm sharing a card of 'Thanks' that I made.  Last week we vacationed in Virginia Beach. A friend I went to college with lives down there now, so I connected with her on Facebook and arranged to meet up with her.  She graciously offered to watch my kids one night so hubby and I could go out for an early anniversary dinner.  It was such a blessing to us!
The glasses were cut from Cricut's "Stretch Your Imagination" cartridge, and the THANKS was from Paper Lace.  Sometimes you just don't have a good stamp or mat for your sentiment, so I try to remember that I can cut them out sometimes :)

Have a great day everyone!

Wednesday Word Project

Happy mid-week everyone - Thanks for stopping by!

Today I'm sharing a project with you that I made for my son's bedroom door.  I love how popular burlap is these days, and I love mounting paper crafts on it - I think it looks so nice!  My son's nursery has a jungle theme, so I used some 'wild' print papers to spell out his name:
I used the Varsity Font cartridge for the letters, and the patterned paper is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby).  I mounted the letters on some burlap, that is covering the back of this frame.  Hopefully this is something that he will like to have in his room for many years to come :)

Have a great day!
