Winter or Spring? ... and More Challenges

Friday, February 24, 2012

I know the calendar says it's February 23; It's Winter right?  But today in Atlanta, it was such a beautiful Spring like day (76 degrees and sunny)!  So, the inspiration for my card is the beautiful weather we're having.

I combined  two challenges over on SplitcoastStampers for this card.  First, Ways to Use It Challenge ~ Buttons (WT363) and second, the Clean and Simple Challenge ~ Stitching (CAS158).

Paper: Bazzill (white), Papertrek Ink (Spring Moss), DoodleBug  
Ink: Papertrey Ink (Spring Moss), Memento (Tuxedo Black)

A Small Gift Bag

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine's Day!  I wanted to share a small gift bag I made for my daughter for Valentine's Day.  I can't tell you what's inside because sometimes she reads my blog.

I found the small lunch style bags (pictured below) at Michaels.  They come in several different colors and are 6 3/4" tall by 3 1/2" wide and 2" deep.  I cute my bag down to 3 1/4" tall to fit the heart shaped die. 

These bags have so many possibilities.  I can't wait to show you other projects using these sweet little bags.

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink
Paper:  Bazzill
Ink:  Versa Magic-Pretty Petunia
Accessories:  Cuttlebug, Embossing Folder, Sizzix Heart, Handmade flower, Button, Sponge, Diecut Glitter Leaves-Michales

My hope for you today, lots of chocolate and roses.  Happy Valentine's Day!

A One Layer Card, and What Happened to Winter?

Saturday, February 11, 2012

This week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge (OWL 78) is to make a one-layer card using MORE THAN FIVE circles on your card. This was a real challenge for me!  Lost, I decided to clean off my work table, thinking I might find some clarity in a clean work area.  And there it was, a small pile of stamps I had set aside to use in January.  You know, those cute little snowmen, and Wintery themed stamps you don't use during Christmas, that are just perfect for a cold and snowy January day.  It's now almost the middle of February and we still haven't had a Winter, but look at this snowflake border stamp from Hero Arts I used below.  Look at all those circles and dots!  Maybe now we'll get some snow.....

Just to show you what a warm Winter we've had, look at my daffodils.  They're in bloom a month early.

Stamps:  Hero Arts- Snowflake Border & Memory Box-Sentiment
Ink: Palette Snow
Paper: Kraft
Accessories: Bling
