This is my little corner in the world. Where I can show and tell and learn also. I do a variety of paper crafts ranging from scrapbooking and quilling. The Cricut and gypsy are my main tools for crafting.
These are two Peachy Keen challenges cards that I made. I went through their archive to find some ideas a couple of weeks ago. I haven't posted to a challenge yet but am really enjoying do them. I have brought my card creating level up notches. Even my 18 year old has noticed a change in my cards. This is a birthday card. I used standard 5x7 pre-scored card. Cuttlebug embossing folders. Stickles for the flower and bling for the middle. Stamped sentiment and stamped flower that I cut out and chalked. Friskars punch, this was the first time I did a boarder with punches. I've had this punch for years but barely used it. Until I saw the challenges from Peachy Keen and viol la.
This was a monochromatic twist challenge from Peachy Keen. What I love best about this card is that I used scraps. Since I have tons of it I'm always trying to use them instead of using a fresh sheet of paper if possible. I made this a Mother's Day card. My monochromatic color... Pink of course. My favorite color. I used Joann's glitter for the flowers. The paper is Anna Griffin. One of my very first card making sets I bought. Umm....years ago. I traced the leaves with Surka??? gel pens. Love those pens. Works every time. Pink ribbon and glitter around sentiment. Sentiment cutout from Cricut cart.
This challenge I actually meant to post. The next day at work I realize I missed the deadline. Would've have been my first actual challenge. I'll have to wait till next time. This would have been a two for one. I made this card for a co-worker who just had her very first grandchild. As you can see it was a girl! The challenge for this was to use stitching somewhere in the card. The Oneise idea came from someone on the Cricut board that made a Oneise with a tutu on it. (Sorry I don't remember who it was to give credit to.) I also used a Peachy Keen stamp for this challenge. The oneise is from New Arrival. The scallop cut out is Spellbinders. I chalked the sentiment. I don't think it showed up very well in the picture. My co-worker just loved the card. Thanks for looking. Please don't forget to leave a comment if you enjoyed my challenge cards.
I’m have been married for about 10 years to a wonderful man who supports my crafting and always pushes me to do better with my projects. We have three children all which play their own little part in my/ their crafting. I supervise the operations department at a credit union in DC. I have been saved for the last 12 years of my life and other than spending time with family crafting is my next favorite way to spend my time. Next to my main supporter of my crafts was my mother. A wonderful woman of God who showed me taught me so many things except how to sew. (Which isn’t one of my crafts that I do, other than making pillows?) Who went to be with the Lord in January 2010. My Father now has become next big supporter of my crafts and embracing more the roll of grandfather. I love making gifts for my family and friends. I love learning new techniques and finding new projects to do.
