Cardmaking WYW Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cardmaking WYW Blog Hop!!

Today you will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  Today we are featuring artwork which showcases the Cardmaking WYW!! What I love about these kits is you are getting an exclusive stamp set plus the instructions, and supplies to make 12 cards.  What is great is you do not need to follow the directions or even change things up a bit.  The ideas are really endless.

If you are just arriving her from WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 14 consultants participating so you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I chose the Mother’s Day Cardmaking Kit which has unfortunately has sold out. I did not need 6 mother’s day cards, however, I do need thank you cards so I decided to add my own twist to these cards.

So the top card is how the instructions show to design the card and the bottom two thank you cards I designed using the same sketch.  I just pulled a little Glacier and Pacifica cardstock for my stash.

So the card on the bottom row middle is closest to how the kit show to make the cards.  I decided to create my own using the Pacifca and Glacier papers.  So you can completely work these cards to your needs.  It is nice to have the sketches and cutting guides to work from.

Color Dare #239 ~ Slate, Canary, White Daisy and Eggplant

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #239 we are challenging you to combine SLATE, CANARY, WHITE DAISY and EGGPLANT.

I originally though I would do something with flowers as that is what sort of came to mind.  Then I saw a stamp set that has been sitting on my desk taunting me to create with it….So I decide to play with Kyle.  Technique Tuesday came out with an Animal House Series this year and I could not resist as they started out with a fox stamp set so I was hooked.  Kyle was there February release.

For this card I used the fundamentals.  I stamped Kyle in Slate ink then using a blender pen lifted a bit of color from the Slate stamp pad to color him and his hat.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #239 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday April 20, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Bailey the Bunny Easter Card

I can’t believe Easter is this weekend!! The great news is I remembered in time to create some Easter cards to send to family.   I used my new adorable Bailey the Bunny stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

I used the wood grain embossing folder on Whisper cardstock for the background.  The rest of the cardstock is from the Whimsy Fundamentals.  The sentiment is from Eggstra Special Easter from Lawn Fawn.

Happy Place Layout

I was able to play around in my craft room again this weekend ~ Yippee!!! I am finally getting to some of my stacks of layouts to complete done.  I pulled this one of my son and his first electric train set from 2013.  I pulled the Swan Lake paper pack which is now retired to work with.  I really like how it turned out.

The tittle comes from the Dreamin’ Big complements.  The white acrylic was not showing up so I colored them with my shin han marker.

Happy Crafting!

A Feathery Thank You

I needed to create some thank you cards for a couple guys so I found some time to create.  I decided to go with a neutral pallet and pulled a few of my retired items. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.

I used the Rustic Home Fundamental for the paper on the right and the word paper if from retired Florence. The bronze glitter paper is retired as are the gems.  I found this ribbon in my stash.  The feathers are from Artisty.

Happy Crafting!
