My Frend & Coffee Cards

Hey guys so I have cards from this summer i kept promising to post but didnt get the chance so here are two of my simple cards I made.

The first is an A2 sized card on recolections cream cardstock
I used MME Lost & Found Union Square paper distressed with my WRMK Heart Distress tool inking the edges with TH Distress ink in Tea Dye & Vintage Photo.
I stamped the PTI Friendship Jar stamp on to the paper then added the flowers from SSS Flower Friend using SU inks in Pretty in Pink,Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple,& Gumball Green. Added some Celebrate it Pink Satin 5/8in ribbon & bow w/ a button tied on with AC Green twine. The My friend & label are also from PTI friendship jar. I finished it up by adding some SSS Clear Rhinestones.

My second card is also A2 size on Neenah Solar White cardstock

I adhered some Recollections 12x12 Flocked Polka dot paper then die cut the heart from the front of the card 7 paper using Spellbinders Nesting Hearts. I used PTI Heart to Heart #1 stamp & die set for the coffee & sentiment. I punched some hearts with a small Recollections punch adding some glossy accents on them.

and lastly inside just added the sentiment For Coffee clean simple but fun.

Hope you liked the cards XOXO

Card for CraftyCity

Hi everyone so I am gonna try and catch up on my blog posts now that Ava has officially started Kindergarten (Wah). I made a card using products sent to me by Archana the owner of an awesome online craft store with flowers, trim, TGF stamps, memory box dies, prima & more. I already posted a YT video of this but please check out the store as well as Archanas YT channel which is Whatamemories.

My card is large its 8 1/2x 5 1/2 on a PTI "Lavender Moon" cardstock base
I used TGF "Blush Beatrice" image and copic colored it (copic colors will be listed at bottom of the post.) All the patterned papers for the card & the paper piecing on the image are from Fancy Pants "Hopscotch". I used MFT Dienamics "Oval Open Scallop Doily Duo" die out of the patt paper for behind my image. I stamped my sentiment from SSS "Banner Sayings" in Delicata "Golden Glitz" ink cut it into a banner then inked the edges with Hero Arts Shadow Ink "Grape Juice". I then layered 2 different laces from CraftyCity onto the bottom of the card.

I layered a cameo onto a metal piece (both from Craftycity) with some cabachons from my stash on the bottom center.

I made both sides symmetrical with the flowers. All of the flowers & leaves are from CraftyCity. The sprays & hearts are from my stash.

For the inside I again layered the Fancy Pants paper. Then took white cardstock inked the edges with Hero Arts "Grape Juice" shadow ink & stamped my sentiment with the same ink. The sentiment is from SSS "Tilted Banner Sayings" & SSS "Beautiful Words".

For my image:

Colors for TGF Blush Beatrice:
Skin- E000,00,21/R20,30  Hair- V05,06,17,09
Everything else was paper pieced with the Fancy Pants papers then shaded with C3,1,00. Also used stickles on her bow and glossy accents on her buttons & shoes.

I hope you like it XOXO
