You're So Sweet Teapot Card

Hello all!  I was lucky enough to be sent these patterned papers from a giveaway that was posted in the Word Art Wednesday Facebook group.  I had a lot of fun making the papers into a card!
 I had this G45 teapot stamp that I hadn't ever used, and it was a perfect match for the card!  I distressed the edges of the papers with antique linen distress ink.  For die cuts, I used GMD stitched rectangles and Cottage Cutz stitched ovals and the oval tag die from eBay.
Nautical Trendy Twine was added to the card as well as a finishing touch.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sympathy Stitched Heart Card

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I am sharing a card that's intended purpose is a Valentine's Day card, but I made it for a very different reason.
A close friend of mine had a Grandpa pass away and her favorite color is purple.  So I got out my Lilac Love stack from DCWV and the stitched heart card file from JGW Sewn From the Heart set and got to work on a sympathy card.
I used Grape Fizz Trendy Twine to lace all of the hearts onto the card base as well as the bow on the sentiment banner.  A few adhesive pearls were the only additional embellishments I added to this card.  For an assembly tutorial for this card, check out Jodi's blog!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sail Your Ship Card

Happy Wednesday!  Today I am bringing you another creation using Victorine Originals stamps!  This time it is a masculine nautical themed encouragement card.  
I stamped the boat and sentiment from the Ship Set using Versafine Black Onyx ink.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to color the paper in.  The colors I used were Antique Linen for the sand, Salty Ocean for the sky (using a hand cut "cloud" piece as a mask) and Peacock Feathers for the water (using a torn piece of cardstock as a mask).  Black Soot distress Ink added dimension to the outside of the panel.
Both rectangular pieces were cut using GMD stitched rectangle dies.  The background paper is from DCWV's Beach House stack.  The front panel is popped up with foam tape.  I stamped the ship a second time, fussy cut it and popped up up with foam tape as well for extra dimension.
Midnight Trendy Twine was the only embellishment I used on the card.
Here is a peek at the Ship stamp set!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Elsa Happy Birthday Card

Earlier this month I had a niece celebrate a birthday.  I have so much fun creating for my nieces and making projects all frilly and sweet :)  My inspiration for this project was a 8.5"x11" Frozen paper pad by EK Success.
The cutting file for this card came from SVG Cuts' Five Minute Cards SVG kit.  The Elsa was part of the paper and I had the star cut her out.  I added some glitter to her dress to add a little extra sparkle.
For embellishments, I added two coordinating colors of crinkle seam binding and adhesive pearls.
Here is a peek at the inside of the card which I embellished with paper strips that were scraps from the other cuts.  Of course, I had to make a coordinating envelope to go with the card as well!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
