Denim Thoughts

Hi folks, it's Holly posting today!  I was in a red, white, and blue mood when I created this card, and I like how it turned out.  It's not a "patriotic" card even though I used red, white, and blue.  It's more of a "what a great day" kind of card.



I used the following products from Classy Cards 'n Such on this card:

Anytime Sentiments (Impression Obsession)
small butterfly die from Cheery Lynn Designs - SOLD OUT
Kraft cardstock

I started by adhering some strips of the Scor-Tape 1/4" across the lower right corner of the denim paper from the Prairie Chic 6x6 paper pad, and then I covered the tape with the Gypsy Red velvet glitter.

The sentiment was stamped and layered with red cardstock, and I added a braided twine frame (a technique from Technique Junkies) around it.

The butterflies were cut from Kraft cardstock and placed randomly around the card.  I used the Joy Foam Pads to adhere the largest butterfly.

I hope you've been inspired to create a fun card using red,white, and blue!


Your card will surely make someone's day! Thanks Holly!

Serenity Prayer

Hi, it's Misti and I'm sharing my card for this week's Classy Cards 'n Such Die Cuts challenge.

Since this is a die cuts challenge, I chose my die cuts first and then built my card around those.


I went with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight, I used the second largest one with gray cardstock. The Cuttlehug is a must with this die cut.

I stamped the sentiment from Anemones by Flourishes stamp set in black ink on white cardstock. Then using a pale pink ink pad, I inked up the main flower image and stamped it over the black ink.  It is just barely visible. I used Spellbinders Labels Eight to cut out that panel.  (Beverly doesn't have this in the store currently, but it can be ordered). These two fit together nicely.

I took my package of Key to My Heart 12 x 12 patterned paper and used the pink as my background panel. I cut part of that same piece of paper but flipped it over to show the pale pink roses on the accent piece.

Using another piece of that same piece of paper, I used the Memory Box Pinwheel Posie die to make a little flower accent. I placed a White Baby Pearl in the center of the flower and in each corner of the pink panel.

I hope you join our Die Cuts challenge. You could win the prize to add to your die cut collection! 


Your card is so soft and lovely! Thanks Misti!

Flower Box Scene

Howdy folks, it's Holly posting today!  Have you played in the Die Cuts challenge with us?

I was inspired to pull out some dies from Memory Box, Poppystamps, and Impression Obsession to create this scene for y'all.



I started by stamping the Distressed Brick - Cover-A-Card background stamp from Impression Obsession, onto Kraft cardstock, and I lightly sponged the edges for a finished look.  Next, I cut out the following:

Small Madison Window - Poppystamps
Small Madison Shutter - Poppystamps
Small Madison Flower Box - Poppystamps
Flower Mound - Memory Box
Leaf Cluster - Impression Obsession

I cut a small rectangle from the striped paper in The Lake House 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad and glued it behind the window.  This is the "wallpaper" that you see inside the "house" of the window you are looking through.  I then adhered the window to the center of my stamped brick wall.  The shutters were adhered to each side of the window.  I applied some Joy! Foam Pads to the Small Madison Flower Box and adhered it at the bottom of the window.

The flowers were shaped with the stylus from the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and the Paper Blossoms Craft Molding Mat.  I randomly glued down the leaves and the flowers behind the flower box.  Some White Baby Pearls were affixed to the centers of the larger flowers.  This brick wall piece was adhered to a white layer and then to a pink card base.

These Memory Box and Poppystamps dies make it so easy to create fun scenes for your cards and scrapbook layouts!  I had a wonderful time putting this card together, and I love the spring-time feel of this card!



What a lovely idea for your card! Thanks Holly!
