Hi friends. Today’s cards were totally cased (Copy And Shared Everything) from something I saw online. The flower colors look so vivid and really pop against the black “chalkboard” background, and the white ink of the greetings and outline also lend to the chalkboard feel.
I used Hero Arts’ white unicorn ink and the stamps are from Stampin’ Up’s Secret Garden set. I thought they were so striking that I made quite a few color and sentiment combinations. Thanks for visiting my blog today!
Did you know that March is National Craft Month? One of my favorite crafts is creating with my Cricut machine. Here are four of my favorite Cricut cards created for OWH with the thought that they would be perfect for children to receive.
There is nothing better than bee-ing with you!
Toadally in Love
Miss you Deer-ly
Wishing you . . . A turtley awesome day!
They were cut with the Create-a-Critter cartridge, which has such adorable, endearing characters sure to evoke a smile. I just happened to have some punny stamps to go along with them too.
I was fortunate enough to enjoy another weekend at my favorite crafting place – the Crop-A-Doodle-Do – which is Indiana’s finest crafting Bed and Breakfast! It is a farmhouse renovated into a crafter’s haven. What a respite. All our meals and snacks were made for us, and all we had to do was craft, relax, and reconnect with friends. Here are some pictures of the weekend.
Relaxing in Adirondak Chairs
I planned to make 114 owl cards to to go along with the owl pun stamps I just bought. After about 35 owl cards I had had enough of the tedious piecing and moved on to another project.
Components to make 114 owl cards!
Guess Whoo Misses You
Guess Whooo Loves You
The owls were made with Stampin Up’s owl punch and the branch is from their bird punch. I pieced everything together with my craft tweezers and Tombow’s Mono Multi Glue.
You Rock components
I borrowed the CADD’s Cricut Cartridge called Nifty Fifties and cut out all these terrific guitars as well as the phrases of “You Rock.” I made these cards for OWH and thought the You Rock cards were perfect for deployed service folks to send home to their teenagers.
Now back to normal tomorrow with work, etc., but at least I am starting Monday feeling refreshed and rested. Speaking of work – Missie, here is the card I dedicated to you for covering the weekend’s dictation for me. Thank You – You Rock!
You Rock, Missie!
