Ingredients:

Kraft card stock
Bo Bunny Boardwalk paper
Neenah Solar White paper
Rectangle die
Black ink
Tea Dye distress ink
Copic markers
Cheesecloth
Natural Twine
Seashell charm

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Bo Bunny Boardwalk paper distressed the edges and then inked it with Tea Dye distress ink and added that to the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper, some black ink and the Tim Holtz Seashell Sketch stamp and stamped that onto the paper and colored that in with Copic markers.  I cut it out with an older rectangle die that I have, inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and rubbed some of the Tea Dye distress ink lightly over the paper.  I took a piece of cheesecloth and glued that to the back of the shell rectangle and then attached them to the card a little on a slant.  I took some natural twine and wrapped that around the card a couple of times and then tied a seashell charm to the top.

Be sure to stop by the Simon Says:  Distress It Challenge to see all the awesome creations that the Design Team have made.

Ingredients:

White card stock
Neenah Solar White paper
Blue paper
White paper
Pink patterned paper
Black ink
Victorian Velvet distress ink
Copic markers

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card. I took the pink patterned paper, inked the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink and added that to the card.  I took the Gerda Steiner Designs Hoppiness stamp set and some black ink and stamped the fence and the rabbits onto some Neenah Solar White paper.  I colored the image in with Copic markers and then fussy cut it out.  I took some white paper and the My Favorite Things Dienamics Stitched Square Scallop Frame.  I took some blue paper and cut that out with the same die.  I took the blue paper from the center of the frame.  I added the fussy cut out fence and bunnies and placed that on top of the blue paper.  I took the outside white frame and matched it up to the blue inside of the frame and glued that onto the card.  I wanted the card to look like you are looking out the window at the bunnies on the fence.  I took the sentiment and some black ink and stamped that over the frame.

I would like to enter this card in the Share Your Design Challenge August 2018 on the Gerda Steiner website.

Momma to Be!

Hello Blogging Friends,


I have a happy card to share with you today!  I heard from my niece that she is expecting so I just had to make a card for her!  I am so happy for her!  Such joyful news.  


I am going to enter this card in the Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge #380 ~ Anything Goes




Here is my card:




Ingredients:

Whimsy Celtic Knot die
White card stock
Assorted papers from my stash
Spun Sugar distress ink
Tumbled Glass distress ink

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took some pink paper, the Expectant Mother die and cut it out.  I used some Spun Sugar distress ink to ink the edges and highlight the baby heart and then I added that to the star paper.  I cut that out with the Waffle Flowers Lacy Layers 2 dies and then mounted that onto some aqua paper that I cut out with the next size up Waffle Flower Lacy Layers 2 dies.  I took the light blue paper, inked the edges with Tumbled Glass distress ink and attached that to the base of the card and then I center the other layers on top of that.  I took some green paper and the Whimsy Celtic Knot die and cut it out and tucked it between the layers for some good old Irish luck!!  I am very happy with the way it turned out and I am hoping that my niece will love it when it arrives!

Be sure to hop on over to the Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge #380 ~ Anything Goes to see what the Design Team have created for this challenge!
