Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #215

Welcome back!  This week I had limited access to supplies while traveling to the West Coast!  The exciting part, the new Altenew stamp set the wound its way into my collection.  I used this layering stamp set and a sparkle pen to color this gorgeous flower set.  I can at wait to get back to the east coast and get back into my craft room!  I did a lot of journaling and planning on this trip and hope to invest more time into my blog and get back into creating my weekly videos!

I hope you'll join us this week!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #213

At first glance, I was going with my default coffee stain for this sketch challenge... and then thought it wasn't very creative!  I asked Sean what he thought the sketch looked like... and his response 'a coffee stain.'  Original.  He then said, 'a car doing a u-turn'.
I was going through my stamps and found these little guys from Lawn Fawn and decided to flip the sketch upside down.  I did a modified shaker card with Tule instead of an acrylic window - inspiration from Jennifer McGuire.  It keeps the card lighter and less bulkier.  And who knew... but there is glitter Tule out there!  That will be for another project though.
The 'Love' is a die cut from Winne and Walter.
I hope you enjoy Sketch #213!  Get your craft on!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #211

Welcome back to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #211 and Happy Mother's Day!

I had to break out the Brother Scanncut to make the Zig Zag pattern welded with a circle.  The flowers are a Memory Box Die cut that I glued all the little pieces together.  

The Mother's Day Stamp is from Lawn Fawn.  The circle ring is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I hope you join us this week and to all the mom's out there - Happy Mother's Day!  Anyone interested in joining the challenge, the deadline is Sunday night.

Baby shower invitation!

Bows!  It wasn't the focal point for this card but it did unlock the invitation to an upcoming baby shower!  I had a blast designing this card with the Mimi to be!

This card has been entered in the 4 Crafty Chicks Bow Challenge!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #209

Welcome to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch #209.  I found this one to be a tough one.  I kept thinking the Olympic Rings but I didn't know what to do with that.  So the longer I thought about it and pondered it over a cup of coffee, it finally hit me.... or spilled!  

Feel the love.  Caffeinated love.

The background was embossed with triangles.  The middle section was created with the Concord 9th triangle stamp.    The spilled coffee stamp is from Altenew and the coffee cups are from Newton's Nook.  I do love my coffee.

Happy Crafting!

4 Crafty Chicks - Butterfly Challenge

A butterfly challenge!  How fun!

This card was designed for the 4 Crafty Chicks Card Challenge - Butterfly.  I used the Die'sire floral die cut to create the edges.  The background paper is scrap paper left over from when I was playing with my Gelli plate and acrylic paints.  The colors worked perfectly!  The butterflies (Memory Box) were die cut from water color paper that I painted with purples and pinks and sprayed some sparkle mist on.  I embossed the sentiments on vellum and attached!  This was a fun card to make and will hopefully remain a secret for my mom!

Happy Crafting!

Rubbernecker Challenge #7 April Showers

I missed the last Rubbernecker Challenge by a few hours and wasn't going to let this one pass!  April showers do bring May flowers as I'm sitting here on our own rainy Sunday looking forward to all that it brings tomorrow!  We planted a lot of flowers this weekend and I can't wait to see them bloom.  For the background, I sprinkled some colorburst on white cardstock and then sprayed the paper lightly with water.  Once that dried, I embossed the raindrops and then used some ink and a sponge to highlight the raindrops a bit more.  I diecut an umbrella and covered it with flowers and diecut 'celebrate'.  It was a fun little project for a rainy Sunday.  Happy Crafting!
