Someone I love.....

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to all! Today I have a card designed for Club Scrap, The Project Bin Stamps ,and for Really Reasonable Ribbon's Anything Goes Challenge. I TPB's beautiful stamp set called "Born Yesterday", and Club Scraps Vintage Botany Deluxe club kit and Really Reasonable Ribbon's Satin! LOVE them all!

On my card I used 1 sheet of design paper in the 8 1/2" x 11" and layered with the green card stock also from the kit. Next I added sewing in a pink that I had a little left on the spool. For my sentiment I chose the Someone I love was born today, as its a birthday card, and worked perfecting with the die cuts I used from Cheery Lynn Designs.

The Really Reasonable ribbon I chose to use came from a jar I have on my work station that holds all current scraps of ribbon. That I way I know its still available to buy. I also used the sweet little covered button embellishment from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well.
I Hope you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful day!

 Hello everyone, and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have a fun summery card I created for Cheery Lynn Designs using the beautiful floral & Doily dies. I have to say I LOVE the wide variety of dies that Cheery Lynn carries, and all the different Beautiful Doily's, its a crafters haven....hehehee My card was also designed for The Project bin using their super darling stamps!

For my card today, I started off by using a paper collection called sugar rush by basicgrey, im sure its an old old collection, as I have hardly any sheets left in this 6 x 6 paper pad....hehehehe

Next I took one of the coordinating design papers and cut out my Small Gardenia strip flowers B433. I love the look of these grey polka dot gardenia's. They were super easy to make and all I did was add some pearls to the centers.

Next I cut out some of the Floral Bouquet Kit greenery B777 to use with these beautiful gardenia's, and I LOVE how these turned out using 2 different Club scrap green inks, and a blending foam dabber. LOVE the look of the leaves!!

Doily Layers were done using 3 different Cheery Lynn Doily's
DL282 Alpine Flourish Doily
DL280 Royal Scandinavian Doily
DL232 Ankara Lace Doily
These were all cut out using white card stock, and layered within the layers of my card. I LOVE adding lots of layers to all my cards, its so fun to create them with layers :)

Sentiment was stamped using The Project Bins Bazinga! stamp set, and 2 different blue ink pens.

Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is a Taffeta in the color Maize.  and I used the beautiful pearls from Really Reasonable Ribbons Embellishment line.
Lastly I added some fun sewing to all my layers.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Happy Birthday

Hello crafty friends and Happy Friday to you all! Today's card is a super fun birthday card created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful Satin Ribbon that came in last months Ocean Breeze Assortment. Love the colors in this club assortment! My card was also created for The Project Bin using the darling sentiment from Jukebox Birthday set.
 I made my big bow using the satin, and love how it turned out. Easy when you use the beautiful and nice ribbons that Bonnie carries over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop. I also used the foam tabs that can be found here.

The flowers were done using dies, and coordinating design paper. I did use the Glass flower technique that I do on a lot of my flowers. I love how these look in person. Not like paper :) heheheh for the centers I chose to use some of my beads from my collection. I have Hundreds of these that I ended up with from my moms best friend.

The stamp is from The Project Bin, and it is super cute. I did this stamping with the Mini Misti tool. Love that tool for stamping. I have to say you never get a bad stamped image using this, what a life saver .

The dp is from American Crafts, and I added sewing to complete my card for today.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by!

In My Heart

 Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Sunday to you all! Hope you have been having a nice crafty weekend! Today I have this sweet card designed for Cheery Lynn Designs and The Project Bin Stamps. On my card today I used 4 different Cheery Lynn Dies, and the sentiment from TPB "In My Heart" stamp set.

To start with I grabbed some design papers that I've been keeping in a box on the floor by my work station. I figured this would be an easy way to use up all those scrap design paper pieces we all have a ton of.....LOL and when I grab new sheets, the leftovers go in this box as well, unless they have a book or box that I have them in to begin with. Meaning like graphic45 , I put all my scraps back in the paper stack, so I have it with that collection. And some of my other collections are in boxes, and plastic tote things that hold entire collections. I should take a photo so you can see :)

PHOTO'S below!
 So the top photo here holds some of the stacks either 12 x 12 , and 6 x 6 of the one collection, along with any embellishments that go with that collection. Like stickers, ribbons, brads, embellishments of all sorts. Love that I can pull one plastic tote and have everything I need.
This is how I store all my club scrap collections. Each box has either 1 0r 2 collections in it. and will state that on the box, so I can grab them easy. On the paper shelves I do keep a few collections that didn't come in a stack, but rather a plastic bag type holder. Those I have on some of these shelves in my room.

So the design papers on this card came from my scrap box. Not sure who they are by, but love them, and glad to use them up!

Next my flowers were cut using Cheery Lynns B339 Gardenia Strip, B241 Rose Leaf Strip, and then the Wreath Strip B216 for the branches used on this card.

The Doily is Cheery Lynn's Priscilla Doily die DL260.
Bow was created using Really Reasonable Ribbons Delicate Satin.

Sentiment is from The Project Bins "In My Heart Set"

Lastly to complete my cad I added sewing!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a lovely day

Floral Bouquet Kit die B777- I cut them out with coordinating design paper, and distress them quickly, then added a pearl to the centers and hot glued to my card.

Flourish #8 - cut out in coordinating design paper and glued to my card. super easy!

Sentiment Layer- was done using the DL282 Alpine Flourish Doily cut in a white shimmer card stock, next I layered the Pierced Stacker #2 XL20 , and that was cut in matching design paper. For the actual sentiment layer, it is the Oval Classic M-7 die. I distressed it, and stamped my Project bin sentiment on it.

Club Scrap June Artist Team Challenge

Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps June Artist Team Challenge! This month the June Challenge is"One Layer" using Club Scrap collections of papers and stamps. Our task was to create layouts, cards or other projects using 1 paper and stamps. This was a CHALLENGE for me, as you all know I LOVE LOTS of layers..hehehehehe

Now you should have arrived from Debbie's Blog , however if you did not come from there, you might want to start at the beginning with Karen's Club Scrap blog that way you wont miss any of the Design Teams beautiful creations.
For my 3 cards I used white card stock, and then combined the stamps from the Delft Collection and this months Pattern Play Collection.

I LOVE using lots of layers, so this was a challenge for me. I figured I would decorate with the beautiful floral stamps from Delft Collection, and then use the sentiments from Pattern Play. Delft has to be one of my many favorite kits.

I did use the stencil for the Happy Birthday and then the Thanks card. The other card was done using a piece of design paper, and then stamps. I do love how these turned out for being only one piece of paper...hehehe
hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I truly enjoyed creating my cards for today using the Pattern Play Collection and Delft Collection ! Please let me know what you think as I always enjoy reading your wonderful comments!

Sweet William Flower Card

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all!
Today I have a card created for Cheery Lynn using the beautiful Sweet William Strip Flower die, along with a few other fun dies :)

I started with picking some design paper, and after that I knew what I wanted to do. The Sweet William Flowers are so pretty and I thought they would look perfect cut with the coordinating design paper from this line. I used Crate Paper line for this card. I did distress each flower, and kept them single layers, and added a pearl to the center of each one. Pearls used are 8, 10, 12 mm pearls.

The layers I cut are the Royal Scandinavian Doily die, LPC4 Circle die, Flourish #8 die, and of course the beautiful sweet William Strip die.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
Royal Scandinavian Die DL280
LPC4 Circle die,
Flourish 8 die
Sweet William Strip die B307

The ribbon, fabric button, and pearls are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Sentiment is from The Project Bin Stamps, Born Yesterday stamp set!
 I love how this card turned out, and so glad I pulled some of my older design papers out to use. It's nice to use them up, and it's like having new papers again...hehehhehe
Thank you for looking and hope you enjoyed today's post!
Have a nice day!
hugs to all,
