My first Sketch.......MFTWSC161 Love is in the air


My first sketch submission, hopefully one of many, it was lots of fun to create this card using the My Favorite Things Sketch 161 and this stamp set PI Love Is in the Air, was just perfect for a Valentine's Day card.  

The papers I used were Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and pattern paper from Pebbles, Yours Truly. I cut a stitched journaling card from Lawn Fawn and paper pieced the dress on the girl with the same patterned paper and copic colored her to finish the image off.

I also used these beautiful dies from MFT and I think they added a lot to the card, maybe a little too kind of took over the card, but was a fun embellishment too.

On the inside of the card, I stamped off the image so it was a little muted and ready for someone to write a little note on it.  The Love banner came from the bottom of the patterned paper, it was a little border that I just trimmed off.

Hope you like this card, had lots of fun making it.  Have a great weekend.

A new beginning.......

As I start this blog, I hope to inspire and be inspired to create great things, all crafty of course.  I have been a crafter for so long and just recently got back into card making on a whole new to start off, I thought I would share this super secret stamp that received from the Super Secret Stamp Club from that I created as a Valentine's card.

Hope you enjoy and would love to hear feedback as I get started on my blogging journey.

As a mother of a young girl, all things princess become a way of life, so this stamp was so cute and perfect for Valentine's.

I used a little Christmas Red Stickles on the apple and her shoes, plus some Wink of Stella Red glitter pen on her bow.

I can't get enough of this tree die, I think by Savvy, I added the red hearts and thought it just made it perfect.

And the inside I cannot leave blank, I have taken a tip or one hundred from AmyR at that always puts just as much work on the inside of her beautiful cards as she does on the outside, I couldn't agree more.

So there it is my first of hopefully many posts sharing my creations.  Thanks for stopping by.
