Today I am sharing a card that was inspired by some wedding floral I just did. Her bouquet was so pretty and had a nice rustic touch. And when I saw the Paper Craft Crew card challenge, it was the perfect time to pull my idea together!
I used products by My Favorite Things, amuse studio and Reverse Confetti. I must add that I even pulled out an old Stampin’ Up! set with the year 1992 on it!! Yes, I still have sets that old. I have 2 shelves of some wood mounted sets that I will probably refuse to ever get rid of because I liked them so much! It that pine needle and pine cone touch on the card that I used the set for.
I also found another card challenge blog that I’m excited to follow! It’s the TGIF challenges and looks like a really fun weekly challenge to participate in, with lots of encouragement to use these cards we are making for something simple and great with their kindness project! I will be sending this card out as my R.A.C.K. to the lady I did the wedding floral for. Her and her husband are in the military together and that touches a special place in our hearts for those out fighting for our freedoms.
Truly, they are simply fabulous for all they do!!
And that’s my card – for 2 different challenges – for today! Have I ever said card challenges are my favorite?! I can’t get enough of them. I’ve got 5 more on my mind and can’t wait to go create and pull something together with the great ideas these card challenge bloggers come up with!
Have a wonderful day!

Ahhhhh… Sitting to my stamp desk again felt SOO good! Everything got busy and stayed busy with the clan once Spring Break hit! I’m challenging myself to make a card a day every day this week except for Saturday. And I am looking forward to it 🙂
I played along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week which was “Add some texture” and they were featuring Tim Holtz products. It’s a perfect fit because when I use Tim Holtz stuff, it always ends up “textury”! There are some card makers out there that do an AMAZING job with it all the time. For me – it stretches me because it’s not normally what I do. It’s fun to add it in and this challenge was the perfect time to get all “Tim Holtz textured” again 🙂
All that texture stuff in the background is from the Bitty Grunge stamps and stencils set by Tim Holtz
The “because” die and the “You’re Missed” is by Lil Inker Designs
Dies from Avery Elle and Spellbinders plus a few little embellishments I have hanging around from Stampin’ Up! and my card was finished.
I might have to play with this style more often!
Have a wonderful day!
Hello friends! The card I’m sharing today is made entirely of die cuts! It’s not very often that I make a card that has no stamping on it at all. I had so fun layering all these branches and flowers up to make a thick and lovely wreath. The wreath, flowers and the branches are all part of the Spellbinders die set “Woodland wreath” and they sure layer up pretty!
I also cut the hello from a beautiful Altenew’s set and layered it several times. I then placed it in the center of the wreath.
Lastly, I added a bunch of embellishing gems, rhinestones, navy mini pearls, and lots of Nuvo drops!
It’s pretty in it’s simplicity, even though it a lot of time to create. But the time it took was worth it! And I can’t wait to send it out.
Happy Spring everyone!
My Favorite Things has a simple sketch for their current sketch challenge and I wanted to play along to make a couple of cards. Here is the sketch
I’ve been in love with this Sweet Succulents set and the coordinating dies, so I just had to use them again.
Wink of Stella always adds a nice touch and I especially loved it on these cacti! Cacti? Is that a word lol! I haven’t used it forever.
And just for fun, I flipped the sketch and the orientation of the card to make another.
And that’s a wrap for today’s stamping!
I’ve got my eye on several other challenges. Can’t wait to see what fun stuff I’ll be pulling out to create with next! Is it possible to be addicted to challenges? ha ha! They are so fun to stretch my stamping!
I played along with sketch #328 over at Freshly Made Sketches for my card today.
I used amuse studio stamps with coordinating dies along with dies from My Favorite Things, Spellbinders and Hero Arts to create these cards
I love using the Freshly Made Sketches because I tend to love things clean and simple!
I love a good wreath and these flowers from amuse studio have kind of a wildflower look to them. Made for fun floral on the wreath
I was having so fun with the flowers that I colored and cut a whole bunch of them. So while I had all the supplies out, I went ahead and made a fancy wreath card too!
I’m always needing “Thinking of You” style cards so if I’m going to make one, I may as well make 2 while I’m at it!
With all the pearl accents, and the layered flowers and leaves, it made for a much fuller wreath.
Both cards were fun to make! When I finish a simple one, I’m certain that’s my favorite kind. Then I do a fancier one and think those are. So I guess I really love both!
But if I had to choose a favorite, it’d probably be the clean and simple kind. Thank goodness I don’t have to pick one style with this hobby!!
I recently found this cute little machine called the Sizzix Sidekick on Scrapbook.com and had to have it!
The starter set for it comes with a little stamp set and a matching dies. With those, I made a simple card set to give as a gift.
I’ll definitely be using this thing for a lot of the little die cutting there is to do! It will be great for travel too!
Hope you have had a wonderful day today!
Hello again! Today I’m played along with challenges to create my card – Lawn Fawntatics and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.
The Lawn Fawnatics challenge is to try a new technique.
And the Simon Says Stamp challenge is to make your own background.
So I pulled out a couple of my Lawn Fawn sets. Home Sweet Home and A Birdie Told Me.
I created my own background using a technique that I have never done but wanted to. Watercolor.
It was fun to do! I’ve always been a little too nervous to try watercolor for a background. But that’s what a challenge is all about, right? It was time to be brave lol. I stamped the cute little heart, star and flower images (A Birdie Told Me) on top of the dried watercolor to create the background.
Then added sequins to complete the fun theme of the card.
And that’s today’s card! I just love love love challenges and how they get me outside of my regular stamping habits!
Until next time!
