I am back! And I have 2 cards to share with you. I will be entering these in a couple challenges.
I (heart) sketches and is based on this sketch
The brown paper is early espresso from Stampin' Up. The red paper is recollections. The cream paper is Very Vanilla from Stampin' Up. The 2 red squares were run through the embosser with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots die. The phone booth stamp is from the Stampin' Up Feeling Sentimental set. The phone receiver was cut out on the Cricut from the From My Kitchen cartridge. I used gold floral wire that I wrapped around a pencil and used to form the semi circle seen on the sketch. The two vertical polka dotted lines are fabric tape.
I knew when I got the Feeling Sentimental stamp set that I wanted to use the phone booth with the sentiment spread the word, but had not idea what to do with it. When I saw the sketch, the stamp immediately came to mind because the semi-circle in the sketch reminded me of a phone cord for whatever reason.
This next card will be entered into 2 challenges: 1) Die Cuttin' Divas and 2) Bitten by the Bug2.
The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to use any card feature. I used the card function from beyond birthdays for this. The egg is from Create A Critter 2, the flower tail is from 3 Birds on Parade, the circles and ovals are cut from Cricut Craft Room Basics.
The challenge from Die Cuttin Divas is embossing with ribbon.
Please feel to ask questions, leave comments, etc.
Have a great night!
- I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.
