Plain and Simple

The challenge at Allsorts this week is plain and simple. I dont know if I can get much plainer and simpler then this. Actually I am sure I can but I like how this came out. I have been looking for a miss you stamp that I like to put on the inside but I have not found one yet. Maybe when I go to work tomorrow I will look.

A New Fave Card

This has to be my new favorite card that I have made. It is so different then anything I have ever made and I LOVE it!. I took a copy of this digi into work today to find some paper that I liked with it. I ended up getting some Basic Grey paper. It is so different then anything I would have ever picked out before. In fact I didn't pick it up some one else did. When they got to the register they decided they didn't want it so it was put in my go back buggy. I saw the paper and had to have it.
The funny thing about the Basic Grey paper is that it looks lavender but it is not, it is a light black. I guess it is drawing out the color of the flowers. I ended up using sketch 81 from card patterns for inspiration.

More Details:

I made the flowers from Primas.

The digi is from digital 2 for tuesday.

Everything else is stash.

A Shaped Card

A number of challenges are asking for you to make a card that is NOT square or rectangle. I have never do this so I tend to skip those challenges. Today I decided to take it head on. I made a diaper shaped card out of 2 triangles welded together. Ignore my craptastic hand writing on the inside

Fall Card

Its getting chilly in the mornings here in North Carolina. I love this time of year. You can actually go outside and breath. Ashville is only an hour away and the colors in the mountains are amazing. I decided to make a card that has a southern welcome. I used Word and some font that I like. I am not sure which one it is because I have hundreds of fonts. I was also able to use the card board box looking paper that comes in packs that I HATE! When I see it I am reminded of elementary school or the inside of food packages. I think it works here though.


All the paper is from Michaels. Most of it is recollections.

The ribbon has been in my stash forever. I got it from the dollar spot at target.

The leaves are from Paper Dolls Every Day

The acorns are from Doodle Charms

My Guest Design Project

So I am finally able to post about my card that I made for Digital Delights. I used Christmas Bonnie. Isnt she just the cutest ever?! I know it isnt that easy to see but I Made her shoes, hat ball, and star on the tree pop. To color her I used Copics, Spickas, Bic Mark its, and Martha Stewart glitter markers. Then I used my light blue Pebbles chalks to lightly color around Bonnie so the white paper wasnt as bright. The paper and pearls were from my stash and scraps.

This card qualifies for:

The Crafty Pad: Pearls
A Crafty Little Place: Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly: Just One ( I only used one type of embelli- Pearls)
