Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Another Scrappy Card

Wednesday, August 20

Welcome to our 3rd week of blog hops!
It's really been fun & inspiring  to see so many amazing creations each week!
Just a little note - Google does offer a translate option on some blogs that are in other languages. Its not perfect but it will give you the gist of what's going on. =)

Well I am still working with some fun things I found on my crazy table.
I had a bunch of Very Vanilla & Crisp Cantaloupe Chalk Talk tags cut from last years Convention ADT swap...What?! I told you I had hoarding issues!

Anyway as I was going through a few boxes of scraps I found them & it was like finding a little treasure! They were even stamped with the adorable little leaves from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set! Score! Soooo I grabbed one & turned in to this...


(card size is 4x4)

There may be a serious love affair going on between me & the Choose Happiness stamp set. Lol!
My favorite part of this card might be the stamped background! This stamp makes the most beautiful background paper evah!!!! For the flower on the front I went a little crazy & smeared it with Crystal Effects then fairy dusted on some Dazzling Diamonds. It doesn't show up well but it is SPARK UH LAY! Alrighty time to hop on over to visit Sarah- I'll Race Ya!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Envelope Card

Wednesday, August 13

Before we jump in to this -I wanted to express my deepest sympathies to Robin Williams family & friends. We are profoundly saddened by his death & can't imagine how horrible their grief must be right now. Please pray for them. He was an amazing man that brought joy to so so many & he will be greatly missed.
________________________________________________________________________________
 
Well let me just say I went through the blog hop last week & was totally floored by the awesomeness I saw! Not that I am surprised, Stampin' Up sure knows how to pick 'em, don't they?!
If you just came from the fabulous Lisa Harlow's blog- Can I just say I AM A FAN! She has got MAD photography skillz! I'm a little jelly...lol!
 
Ok on with the show-
True confession time. I am a horribly messy crafter. I wish it wasn't this way but it is & honestly many of my best creations have come together totally by accident...you know the pile you have created finally topples over on to the 6 inch section of clear space you are currently working on & This falls on to That & you have a light bulb moment! No? Is it just me? Well my point is I am loving how trendy the whole scrappy card thing is right now cuz Lord knows I have waaaayyyy too many bits & pieces laying around. Alright now I am rambling so let just get on to the card details... 
 
 
So this card was born of scraps I found on my table! A few strips of left over cardstock, a skinny piece of cut doily, a bit of bakers twine & sequins all looking for a purpose in their lives.  The new Tag a Bag accessory kit & the Crumb Cake Note Cards Envelopes were just what they needed to bring them all together. To put a little spin on it I made a post card style card to slip in to the decorated envelope.

 
While I go pop this little beauty in the mail
 you can head over to the amazingly talented Sarah Sagert...isn't she a doll!

Convention Displays Day 1-Quick Post

Friday, August 8


HAPPY FRIDAY!
Well it feels like Convention was so long ago but the days have passed crazy fast! Thought I better start sharing the samples I made for the Display Boards before all the stuff I used is retired. Lol!
We each got the Amazing Birthday stamp set but we all got different DSP's to work with. I got Flower Pot. I must admit it was seriously out of my comfort zone but it was fun to work with & I'm always up for a creative challenge! Here are a couple cards I made with it-Enjoy!
