Happy Monday! Hope you are having a wonderful day. It certainly is frozen around here….freezing rain over snow. Lovely! Curtain Call’s Frozen inspiration photo challenge fits right in with the weather.
I love snowflakes, but I love them better on paper than in real life. Using the inspiration photo, I decided to go with pretty aqua paper and some shimmering perfect pearls. And I used up an overabundance of rhinestones. This card definitely looks better in real life but hopefully between the 2 photos you can get an idea of what it looks like. Hope you have a wonderful week! Supplies are listed below.
- Cardstock: Aqua Mist (Papertrey Ink)
- Ink: Versamark
- Stamps: Peace and Love and Flowers (Gourmet Rubber Stamps); Flurries (Market Street Stamps); Just Skating By (Chicken Girl Design)
- Accessories: Biscotti Perfect Pearls; rhinestones (Recollections)
I love plaids and wanted to make a card for this week’s Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. But I also like using up my pattern paper scraps. So what does that mean….you are getting a spring-like card in November because I am trying to use up the scraps of pattern paper I have everywhere. I made two cards (going back to using up my scraps), one with a shaker card with the window from the die cut sentiment and one using the die cut sentiment. Supplies are listed below. Hope you are enjoying everyone’s lovely cards! Happy crafting!
My first card is a shaker card. Note to self….sentiment windows don’t make the best shaker cards because there isn’t enough room for the sequins and beads to move. The 2nd card is CAS partly because it was close to 11 last night and I needed to finish it and go to bed. Just keeping it real.
- Cardstock: Marina Mist (Stamping Up); clear cardstock
- Pattern Paper: You’re Invited, Hip Hop Hooray Collection (Pebbles)
- Accessories: Quote Tag die (Paper Smooches); various beads and sequins
I felt inspired to use my pumpkin dies to make some cards for Curtain Call’s Pretty Pumpkin challenge. There some very pretty cards already linked to the challenge and I recommend that you check them out. My first card uses my washi tape stash to create a black background for the pumpkin with some orange cardstock peeking through the eyes and mouth. Hope you like it! Supplies are listed below.
- Cardstock: Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink); White (Georgia Pacific)
- Accessories: Pumpkin Shape-Up die (Papertrey); waxed orange twine; various Washi tapes
