Creative Creases Guest Design

 Today I am Guest Designing at Creative Creases. It is Anything Goes
with a fun fold!



I choose to make a W-fold card.  The magic on this card is on the inside. It is
very simple and fun to make!   I choose a Stampin Up hostess set from last
year - these lady bugs are so cute!  Papers (except the grass) are
 all Stampin Up also.   
 
Take at look and play along with this fun challenge.

JDS-Star Spangled Banner

 It is mid month at Jan's Digi Stamp challenge!

Above is another new release Star Spangled Banner!
 
 I started by printing the precolored version of Star Spangled Banner on
my Scan N Cut, I adjusted the size up to cut a red layer and then up
again for a blue layer.    I then cut snippets of card stock and patterned paper 
for layers and embossed all of them with a star embossing folder.  I printed 
one of the sentiments in the set, die cut and layered it, adding
a star embellishment.

   You can join the challenge here, and check out the store here.  I hope you share 
your anything goes creations with us.

Thanks for visiting.

JDS - The Good Life

 

It's the first Monday of the month so it is new release time at Jan's Digi
Stamp shop and time for a new monthly challenge at Jan's Digital Stamp 
 

I am creating with one of her new June releases The Good Life.  I went with
the pre-colored version as she colored the denim overalls so beautifully. The patterned
paper is Sea & Shore by Hackney & Co,  I got this great nautical pack at a little
stamping store in a small town, Kimswick, MO.  The top of the background is
splattered with red and blue paints. Die cuts by Stamp In Up.

Check out my design team great creations and join the challenge at:

Snippet Session




   It was time to empty out some of my snippet (scrap) box as the
top would not close.  I made a dozen quick cards to add to my
cards for cancer patients.  Everything except the card bases came
from my box.  Some of the card bases had been sitting around
in a scrap pile for years also. Once I stamped the Stamp In Up's
Natures Prints flower and sentiment on the bottom left card (it was
already oval blended) I found every die cut in the box that it would fit
on! Flowers and butterflies were cut from scraps.

Crafting with my granddaughter

 Another card making session with my granddaughter.

 




 So much fun to craft with my granddaughter. We went through 5 paper packs
before she found the one she wanted.  No hesitancy on the paper for
embellishing or which die cuts to pick.  The placement was all hers, a little 
help on arranging "mom"  I think we have talent here!

Happy Birthday Stash


 I've been building up my stash of children's cards and since it is a raining
dreary day I mad this one to play along with a few fun challenges.  I already
had the image colored and die cut on my table and was waiting for 
inspiration from a sketch.
