Breast Cancer Card - With Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there! I am sharing a card made with the Courage Doesn't stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps today. 

This sentiment made me think of cancer when I saw it. Fighting a disease, especially cancer, is a fight that takes a lot of courage. 

A crafty friend of mine shared a sketch book that she had published. I was so excited for her. When I started looking through Inspired By The Sketch Volume 1, I found lots of cute sketches
Using card sketches is not something that I have done in the passed. I wanted to give at least one of Cristena's sketches a try. 

OMG!! I created this card in a matter of minutes. Using a sketch makes crafting so much quicker! I didn't spend an hour placing embellishments and moving them around a hundred times before I was happy. I looked at the sketch and slapped the card together. 

I am so excited about how fast this card went together. I will be using lots more sketches from Inspired By The Sketch Volume 1.

Pop on over to the Rubbernecker Blog to check out this months challenge. Enter to have a chance at winning some free Rubbernecker Stamp goodies. 

See you all again soon!

Winter Themed Tag - With La La Land Crafts

Good morning all! So excited to be coming to you with my first guest designer project for La La Land Crafts! I have been having a ton of fun working with their images. 

The theme this week is create a tag. I used Winter Molli Rubber Stamp. She is just the cutest! 

I colored Winter Molli with Copic markers and put in some highlights with a white gel pen. 

Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000 Blush R20
Hair: E49, E20, E25
Jacket, Hat, and gloves: R89, R29, R24, R05
Fluffy White Parts: W8, W5, W3, W1
Boots: 110, C8, C6

I created a little winter scene for Winter Molli using the La La Land Crafts  Three Christmas Tree Dies. I love this die! You can use it in so many ways. AND the La La Land Crafts dies are super sharp. You can cut out more than one set of Trees at a time by layering medium weight card stock and running it through your die cut machine. 

Here's a closer shot of those gorgeous Christmas Trees. Each one is inked with a little Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink. 

The base of the tag is the back from the package of Spectrum Noir markers. 

It's about 12 inches long and pretty sturdy. Perfect for a tag. I covered it in white cardstock and then decorated. Super simple! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Please hop on over to the La La Land Crafts Blog to see what the rest of the DT made up for today's challenge. 

Have a craftastic day!

Vintage Floral Card

Good morning! I have yet another vintage card to share with you. 

I started out with the Blue Fern Happy Accident Collection Cardstock. I love this paper! I use it on my cards all the time. 

I used two different Beautiful Board flourishes. The Beautiful Board Small Elegant Accents and the Beautiful Board Small Victorian Scroll Border. I cut them both into pieces so that they would go a little further. 

The Rose Quartz Glitter Glass Butterflies are one of my favorite of Reneabouquets Handmade Butterflies.  They are perfect for a Vintage look. 

I used a new technique with the Ranger Clear Emboss It Ink Dabber. I used a paint brush to add embossing ink in random places on the flowers and the bee. I then sprinkled white embossing powder over the placed I inked and used my heat tool to set the powder. I love the way it turned out! 

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. Have a craftastic day!

Good morning! We are focusing on Christmas this week at The Cutting Cafe

I used a couple of different files to make this card. The Christmas Tree Trio Shaped Card and the

The sentiment is one that comes with the Christmas Tree Trio Shaped Card file. 

I used the individual trees from the Christmas Tree Trio Shaped Card to create a little forest. Each tree was cut out with my Cricut Maker, inked with gathered twigs distress ink and then sprinkled with dry embossing powder. 

The white dry embossing powder is a great addition to any project you would like snow on. 

I made the snowflakes from the Snow Flake Shaped Card. Each snowflake is less than an inch big and was cut out with the Cricut Maker. They cut out perfectly.
