As promised in yesterday's post, here's my round up of cards from "time travelling through the holidays"...
First stop - St. Patty's Day. I made this card for the "Yellow and Green" challenge over on Simon Says Challenge, using a "Lily & Milo" stamp from Rachel Anne Miller. I had the *worst* time trying to take a picture of this card. I don't know if all the green threw off my camera's settings or what! I bought this stamp in St. Louis along with the printed paper. I love that paper so much I hated to cover it up, even with Lily. :-)
Next up - Thanksgiving. This card started off as a partially finished project from an SU! stamp club meeting I attended with a friend. I performed some major rehab, adding some printed paper in the process. I almost always include printed paper in my cards now - I think it adds a lot of interest. The original card was also "naked", so I added an American Crafts button tied with Scrappers Floss as an embellishment. Scrappers Floss is great!! It's made from paper and very thin so you can thread it through buttonholes - no needle needed!
Next stop - Christmas. I'm behind in the monthly Christmas Card challenge over on Splitcoast, so I needed to come up with a quick card to help me get caught up. This little cutie is from the Christmas Collection of digi stamps from Grab A Doodle Do. It's hard to see in the photo, but this striped paper is glittered, giving the card a little "extra" without having to add another layer or embellishment. I love sitting in my craft room for hours playing with all my embellies & papers but sometimes you need something cute & quick!
Whew! Like Peter, I did finally arrive back at Easter. Here's the make-n-take we did at the crop yesterday, which uses the Happy Easter set from TAC. I love the collection of coordinating buttons & paper and felt flowers in the "Lemonade" Buttons & Blossoms embellishment boxes! It made it easy for everyone to find a coordinating button & flower.
Happy Easter! Blessed Passover!
