QKR Stampede - Roasting Marshmallows

The QKR Stampede Blog challenge for this week is to make a card that is food related.  I chose the  Roasting Marshmallows image #12106.  The sentiment was computer generated.   I thought he was pretty cute propped up on the matchbox roasting the marshmallows.  I chose  to showcase my image with a center step card and the camping paper that I had in my stash.   I hope you will come over to QKR Stampede and join us for the challenge.  You do not have to use a QKR image, but if you do you will have a chance to win more images.

Classy Cards N Such - Be Mine

Here is a Valentine card I made for Classy Cards N Such this week.    The store is really selling out of a lot of products.  Everything is 38 % off now.  When I make my cards I like to use products that are still available, but by the time my card publishes some of them are already gone.  The Lace Hearts I used on this card has sold out already.

I started off with a white card base.  I then used the Spellbinders A2Filigree Delight die to make the decorative red layer.  The third layer was made by using the  Large die from the Spellbinders
Floral Ovals die set on white card stock.  I then used the smaller die using the same set to cut the red layer.

My heart was cut using the Spellbinder Lace Heart dies.  I cut a white layer to go behind it.  I put a red heart in the center.  I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere the pieces of my card together.

For the finishing touch of my  card, I added a small checked heart with a button and added
White Pearls.

I am happy you came by today.  Have a wonderful Valentine weekend.

Showers Of Blessings

I have made a card for the Classy Cards Challenge 123.  The inspiration picture was of lovely lilacs, etc.. 

I started with a lilac card base, layered it with vanilla and the rain designer paper.  When I started my card I had the cutest paper with rain, boots and clouds.  As you can tell,  I covered all of those things with the elements I added to my card. 

I cute a scalloped square from vanilla Card Stock.   The next layer was cut with the Spellbinders Decorative Curved Square die.  I sponged distress ink over it and stamped a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Showers Of Blessings stamp set.  I popped the sentiment up on the card using Joy Foam Pads.

I cut the umbrella with the Spellbinders Umbrella Trio.   The heart was made using the Memory Box Precious Hearts die.

I added the rose lace at the bottom and added pearls for the finishing touch.

Thank you for taking a look at my card today.

Silver Hearts

I have made a wedding card to share with you today.  It is made with neutral colors-this would also qualify for the Classy Cards Challenge for this week.

I used layers of Silver and White on my card.  The top layer was embossed using the Crafts Too Dots
embossing folder.   I cut two white hearts using the Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Hearts.  I took a silver and white invitation that I had in my stash to use to cut the top hearts with the silver.  I like recycling things like that.  I popped them up on my card using Joy Foam Pads Small.

I took silver card stock and used the Memory Box Madera Corner die to cut two corner to use as flourished around the heart.  I placed them behind the hearts and used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere them to the card.

I used the Spellbinders Sentiments Three to cut the Love with Silver Card Stock.  The silver heart at the top of my card was cut using the Impression Obsession Heart Flourish.  

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks Alatte, Veterans!

I fell in love with this North Coast Creations stamp set called "Warm My Heart".  Is it not just too cute?  I have been making cards to be given to the veteran's who will be in the Veteran's Hospital on Valentine's Day.  I thought this card was perfect to say "Thank You" to them and hopefully cheer up their day.

I hope you are having a good day and that you have sun shining on you today.

Beautiful Valentine - Red and White Hearts

Hello, crafty friends.  I hope all of you are doing well this fine Monday morning.  The sun is shining here and I am going to get outside to enjoy some of it today.   We had rain yesterday so I am guessing some of my friends on the East coast may be getting that today.

The card I am showing you today is for Classy Cards N Such for their Hearts challenge #122.  I chose to use red and white with a touch of silver for my card.  Here is the challenge picture for today.

This is the prize one lucky person will win for their entry for the challenge.  This could really come in handy making your Valentine cards.
Now we will get back to the card I created.  I started with a white glossy card base and added a layer of red foil card stock.   The  next white layer was made using the ODBD Lacey Square die.  I added another piece of the red foil card stock followed with the Spellbinders Vines of Passion die, but one could use the Memory Box LaRue Heart in place of it.   I don't have that die, but I plan to get it soon.

The silver foil heart was cut using the Impression Obsession Heart Flourish die.  I cut the flourish in three pieces so I could use two of the pieces behind the heart.

I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere the card pieces together.  I added pearls on the two corners from Finesse Swirls White Pearls.

I hope you liked the card for today.  I hope to see your heart with red, pink and white hearts entered in the Classy Cards N Such challenge this week.  Thanks,  for coming by today.
