Apple For The Teacher Card

Good morning!  This week my boys started school and one of them had a teacher whose birthday was on Thursday, so I made her this card.
 The card is created from a svg file from SVG Attic's JGW Apple Dandy set.  I used DCWV's Grade School stack for the patterned papers.
 The apple and sentiment are popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Pink and Main's Birthday Wishes stamp set.  The embellishments  I used were Lime Licorice Trendy Twine and GMD Watermelon enamel dots.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Victorine Originals Challenge #9 ~ Wings

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with the theme of "Wings". Here is what I created for inspiration!
 I started by creating the background for the bird cages with Canson XL Watercolor paper and used Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac, Mustard Seed, and Worn Lipstick with my aqua brush to watercolor.  I waited for that to dry then stamped the Victorine Originals Bird Cages stamp using Versafine Onyx Black ink and my stamp tool.  I carefully trimmed the stamped image apart and layered it on black cardstock, then adhered it to my card base.
 The sentiment is from the V.O. Elegant Sayings stamp set.  The enamel dots are from GMD Sunset colors.
Here is the wonderful inspiration board for the current challenge:
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s that follow the above theme and/or color scheme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Shaped Heart Card

Hello all!  I am sharing a shaped heart card with you today.  I started out by making the card base using the largest GMD Big and Little Pierced Chain Heart die.
I layered that with a GMD Lacey Doily die cut and two die cuts of the smallest GMD Big and Little Pierced Chain Heart die.  I wrapped Krazy For Kraft Trendy Twine around the front, added a small sentiment on a tag and a key charm.  The finishing touch was two GMD Rose Garden Enamel Dots on the small heart.  The papers I used are from the 6x6" Love You pad from The Paper Studio.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Grapevine Card

Hello everyone!  We made it halfway through the week :)  Today I have this grapevine card to share with you.
The dies that I used are GMD Grapevine die set and GMD Up & Down In & Out Cut Square die set.  The patterned papers are from DCWV's Bouquet De Fleur stack.  I inked around the outside of the grape die cuts with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.  The outside purple frame layer is popped up with foam tape to create a shadowbox effect for the inside area of the card.
This beautiful scripture verse stamp is from Verve Stamp's Faith Medley set.  I stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black ink and my Hampton Art Stamp Press.  The only embellishment I used on this card was three enamel dots from the GMD Tropical Island colors.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
