Card Concept Thanks

Hi friends! It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept.  I took my inspiration for this clean and layered card from the dots and the bright, happy colors.

I pulled out the Making a Statement set, wanting to use the scallop frame to make a little thank you card.  I then stamped the flowers and cut them with the coordinating Loopy Blooms Die Set before layering them together.  I had intended to use an umbrella sticker from a sticker sheet I had, but it wasn't quite the right size, so opted to use the leafy stickers from the same sheet.  I embossed the background in polka dots, then layered everything up to finish off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to hop on over to The Card Concept to see what the other designers are sharing today, then come play along with us.

Teacher appreciation week at the boys' school is quickly approaching, so I thought I'd get a head start on my crafting.  I pulled out the Teachers Count  stamp set and stamped the numbers background on a circle die cut, then stamped the sentiment over it in black. I layered my papers, matting each with white, then decided to bring in a little pop of color with a red apple, stamped and then cut with the coordinating Apples Die Set.

I didn't measure when I made my card, but here are the measurement I used to create the sketch, if you like to have them. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Mojo Birthday Wishes

Hi friends! It's another Monday morning and that means it's time for a brand new sketch over at Mojo Monday. I hope you're inspired to play along - I always love seeing what everyone does with the sketch.

I started my card making a background with faded jeans and wilted violet distress oxides.  I did several layers, then brought in the flowers from Joyful Blooms, first stamping with water to lift some of the ink away, then coming back and stamping randomly in the same shades of blue and purple.  Lots of spritzing, some stenciled on texture paste and some splatters all went into the finished product.  I embossed the sentiment in white and used some of the leftover pieces when I cut my panel down for the vertical strip in the background.

The flowers are stamped onto watercolor paper in faded jeans and wilted violet distress inks. I then watercolored the centers with watered down distress inks.  The outer flowers are cut with the coordinating Joyful Blooms Die Set and the inner flowers are fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals.  I added some Sprightly Sprigs die cuts, dusted in glitter and a bit of cheesecloth to finish off the dreamy look to this.
