This card was really fun to do. I used all Canvas Corp products so if you'd like, you can head over to their store and put together this card for yourself! Check out the Canvas Corp Blog post HERE.
I did some stamping with the Grateful Stamp set and a little painting on the background. Then, I layered on some burlap, heart tags, and added some fun canvas ruffles. It's all very simple but comes together easily!
Watch the video I put together to see the whole process in detail!
Here's some fun products I used:
Thanks for stopping by today!
I made a few cards recently using Tattered Angels' Glimmer Mists. These mists are so fun to play with and you can get so many different styles and looks out of them! I made a few cards that are more on the Clean and Simple side.
First, I took my Heidi Swapp Confetti stencil and stenciled in some circles at the top of the card using Ranger's Perfect Medium Pen. It puts down a clear, sticky ink similar to VersaMark that you can use to so some embossing with. Then I sprinkled some white embossing powder over the circles and heat embossed them.
Next I took my mists and misted the top of the cardstock. I wanted a heavier concentration of the color at the top and have it gradually lighten towards the bottom. The colors I used were Wedding Pink and Patina.
Since I embossed first, it created a resist. I just wiped off the mist on top of the embossed circles.
Next, I cut a paper doily in half and adhered it to the side. For the sentiment I stamped the word "thanks" on a piece of vellum and wrapped it around the cardstock and adhered it in the back.
I cut two butterflies with my Sizzix and placed them next to my "thanks" sentiment.
Lastly, I took some coordinating sequins and added them around the butterfly and doily.
Hope you enjoy today's cards!

These days my little guy keeps me pretty busy. I'm not complaining at all, but it definitely leaves me with less time for crafting! This sweet little card looks simple, but I made it over the course of several days.
My craft room is also my laundry room, so once in a while when Im in there throwing in a load of laundry I'll do a little stamping or inking. Multi-tasking, right? Well, at least it makes doing laundry a little more fun, if anything!
I started out by stamping the scrolling design in Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Then, I also inked up the large heart that I die cut with my Sizzix. I also die cut the tiny hearts and the scalloped borders, and inked them up too. I played around with several different sentiments but decided a simple "thank you" on a banner looked best. I always like to have some nice Thank You cards on hand.
After all the pieces were assembled it was just a matter of arranging them on the card front. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I adhered them in place. I also added a touch of stickles to the tiny hearts, just for some extra sparkle. Who doesn't love sparkle?
I am also linking this card to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge!
Get ready for a lot of links!
Since I was gone over the weekend, I decided to just wait until today to post a few cards and link them with several challenges.
For my first card, I used the sketch from Mojo Monday. I took a piece of white paper and did some distressing around the edges. Then, I took some of my Memento Hot Chocolate ink, mixed it with a little water, and splattered it on. For the coffee mug ring, I just took a small, round ink pad, inked the rim, dipped it in water, and stamped it on the paper. I also stamped some faded text very lightly with Distress Ink.
The letters were cut with my Cricut, as well as the coffee mug. I added a little Glossy Accents to the heart as my transparent element for Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge. Here's a closer look in case you can't see very well...
I was thinking of several coffee lovers I know that I'd love to have a reason to send this to. :)
My next card is very clean and simple. Definitely not as much inking as the first.
I cut three flower layers from my Cricut out of plain white paper. Then I used my Grape Jelly Memento ink and a cotton square to rub on the color. I stamped just the corner with yellow polka dots, and stamped the sentiment in black.
In the center of the flower I added a button with a baker's twine bow.
I'm linking this to House of Cards as a CAS with a button.
I used the color scheme of purple in yellow in response to OWH's Midweek Throwdown.
I used the button for SSS's Wednesday Challenge.
And... for the first time I'm participating in SSS's Work it Wednesday for March. They want to see what spring projects we are working on.
Whew! I think that's enough links for one post.

So we are supposed to get 3-6" of snow throughout today into tomorrow. Not super excited about that, but it is kind of peaceful to sip my tea and work on a few cards while watching the snow fall.
And then I remember that we will have to shovel. Let's not go there just yet...
I took the opportunity to create a few cards this afternoon after church. I'm linking them up to a few different challenge sites, as well. Here's the first one:
This one is linked to Operation Write Home's Sketch Challenge #214. I used some patterned paper from Kaiser Craft's Lush Collection, as well as from my Mariposa Matstack. My flower embellishment is from my Cricut, and I inked the paper a light yellow. The middle is an eyelet I attached with my Crop-A-Dile. I'm sure you have seen my sentiment stamp before- it's one of my favorites.
On to the next card!
This lucky card gets to be linked to two different sites. The first is Operation Write Home again for their March Challenge. The challenge was simple: make a thank you card.
The second challenge site this card is linked to is Less Is More. The challenge is the make a clean and simple card using the colors green and yellow. Of course I thought of making a Green Bay Packer's card, but maybe I'll save that for another day.
I cut the window panel with my Cricut, as well as the stars. I stamped the "Thank You" before adding foam adhesive on the back and adhering it to the background to give it some dimension. I also added foam adhesive to the stars.
And last but not least...
This card is not linked to any challenge. I was just inspired to make a cute card with an airplane on it. I cut out the cloud window with my Cricut, and placed some patterned paper behind it. I stamped and cut out the airplane, and adhered it with foam adhesives. The sentiment is stamped, and I added some grey string to finish. Simple, yet cute! I love anything with an airplane on it.
So there you have it! A few of my Sunday afternoon cards.
I hear my husband starting up the snowblower, so I guess it's time to shovel.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
