My Hearts Pleasure


You Are Awesome

Hello! I’m camped out in my craft room today because it’s too cold to do anything outside! Lol I got spoiled with that incredibly warm December we had here in Virginia.

I wanted to share one of the cards I made today

I started with a Whisper White card base and then I have a piece of Gumball Green and a piece of the Tea for Two dsp with a piece of Pear Pizzazz ribbon wrapped around those two layers and then adhered to the card base. The next four layers are cut using a die set from Gina Steimel called a Leafy Frame. You can find the dies here in her album on the Facebook group

I cut all four layers from the die set in Whisper White. I colored the leafy border from the two layers with a green marker and once the ink was dry I covered the leaves in Crystal Effects and set aside to dry. The two layers that are layered inside of the leafy frames I distressed with green ink and on the smallest top layer I stamped my sentiment from Painted Petals with Stazon black. Once everything was dry I layered all the pieces together using pop dots and then placed on top of the dsp layer using pop dots as well. To finish I used the flower and vine dies from the set and cut pieces from a scrap piece of the dsp and placed those on the frame.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card. If you would like to join the Facebook group and share your creations we would love to have you there!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂


SIP #29 Sketch Challenge

Good morning! Can you believe it’s the start of a new year already?? To start the new year we have a sketch challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. Here’s the sketch inspiration

SIP #29 Sketch Challenge

And here is what I came up with

I started with a Whisper White card base. I then cut the three flags from the SU dsp called Tea for Two and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo ink and then placed them on my card base. Next I cut the the lacy oval in Coastal Cabana and popped it on the top over the flags and then cut another piece from the same dsp with a MFT stitched oval die and distressed it with Vintage Photo ink and placed it inside the lacy oval cut. Next I die cut the flourish in Whisper White and placed it in the center of the ovals. The sentiment is from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes and I stamped it on white and distressed with Vintage Photo ink and placed it on the inside to the right of the ovals. To finish I used the SU Beautiful Wings embosslit and cut the butterflies from the same dsp and placed the large butterfly on top of the flourish and the three smaller butterflies trailing up from the bottom of the card base up to the ovals. I used some perfect pearls to embellish the large butterfly.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card for the sketch challenge.

I hope you can play along with us this week!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
