Oooohhh, it is SO NICE to be home again, playing in my happy room!
The challenge at Created by Hand this week is..."My heart dances." Just LOVE that! The challenge at Paper Sundaes is paper piecing, and the Creative Card Crew challenge is "going dotty." The "Diecut Dreams" challenge is to create something with a "new beginnings" theme. Over at Gingersnap Creations, the theme is "growth." I needed to make a wedding card, so I used the challenge as a guide. The diecut couple was done with my Silhouette SD and the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder; the stamp is from Quietfire Design.
Over at Cuttlebug Challenges, they're encouraging Easter creations...with some stamping, and the Wednesday Stamper challenge is spring. . So I used my electronic cutter again, and paired my diecuts with stamps from Impression Obsession, Paperbag Studios and Stampendous. Have you seen the new "Cover-a-Card" stamps from Impression Obsession? They're GORGEOUS!
I computer generated text for this one, and set it inside the "Flourished Farm" embossing folder.This is my very favourite folder! The pretty lace stamp is from the "Believe" set from Paperbag Studios.
This card uses the Argyle embossing folder (for the basket) and one of the four Cuttlebug embossing folders from the "With Love" embossing border set. The stamps are Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card medallion stamp, and a very old Stampendous Easter Egg border.
Here, I used more diecuts with the same Impression Obsession stamp, and embossed one of the eggs with the Textile Texture embossing folder.
Just have to tell you, I'm using a new-to-me glue, called Zip Dry,from Beacon Adhesives. What GREAT stuff! No paper warping at all, and dries almost as fast as you use it.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I wish you a creative and playful week.
