Nature Scene

A couple "deer" friends came over today and this is one of the projects
I had for us to make.  The  IO tree die was new and I was anxious to
use it, I already had the IO deer and the Paper Smooches clouds.  Added
grass cut with my Creative Keepsake cutter, sponged Tim Holtz inks on
the dies and Viola!

Little Girls

Just a clean and simple birthday card for my granddaughter. I did not want any little sequins or embellishments that could be swallowed so I used die cuts, an embossing folder and Washi tape for my embellishments.  I have had this sweet set from Our Daily Bread for almost two years -one of many NBUS items.  Lots of cute little sayings in it.

Some fun challenges:

Retro Rubber Challenge 22: use a stamp older than a year

House of Cards September Challenge


It's time for a new monthly challenge at House of Cards!   The September Challenge is: 
Use Stitching (Faux or Real)

I've seen several latch cards and wanted to try this technique.  I colored up  the Blossoming digital stamp set by MHK Designs and pulled out my Die-namics rectangular stitched dies, Copics, and a few butterfly brads from my stash and this is what I came up with.  The top butterfly is what latches the card as you can see above.  Below is an unlatched view and an open view.


Each week a different team from the House of Cards design team and a technique by a member will be featured on the main page or you can check out all the creative "stitched designs" by following the links at House of Cards right away!  A different tutorial will be featured each week so be sure to check back.  We hope you will play along with our September challenge, you have all month to join us at House of Cards!

A few fun Challenges:

Cuttlebug Mania: Emboss, Cut, Create
Hiding in My Craftroom #214: Freestyle
