Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 91

Hello! Still busy, busy, busy. I'm just popping in to share a card I made for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I am absolutely sure that CAS lovers everywhere will love our sketch this week! For me, it was sooo hard! lol! If you guessed a one layer card...then you are absolutely CORRECT!!!

I made several attempts to keep it simple. But I just couldn't help myself. I had to keep on stamping! In the end, I came up with a background pattern! Here's my card for this week's WMSC 91.

It's sort of a one layered card right? Heehee. :P 
I made a pattern using Florentine Frippery and Victorian Frippery. Then I sewed the panel onto my kraft card base.

After I had made this, I had no idea where to put my sentiment without keeping things flat. So I made a belly band instead and stamped my sentiment on it. 

Since I had a hard time with this sketch, I am so excited to get ideas from you guys! I wanna see what you make of this sketch! Please join us for another round of friendly paper crafting at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. See you there! :)

CASE Study Challenge 84

Hello there! Sorry it's been quiet around here lately. I've been busy making cards for a new stamp release this Sunday as well as cards for my DT spots. I'm also guilty in not having a go around the submissions yet for CASE Study Challenge 83. I'll make sure to go and visit your creations tomorrow! :)

In the meantime, we have one last card from our March Muse, Laura Bassen, for CASE Study Challenge 84. We've had a good response to the CAS style challenge. It's been great browsing through the submissions. :) I'm learning a lot. Here's Laura's card for CASE Study Challenge 84.

I love the layering that she did here with the die cuts. I decided to incorporate that into my card, as well as a bit of the layout of the card. Here's what I came up with...

I die cut a tag and repeatedly stamped an image from WPlus9 Spring Tags on it. Then I stamped a pattern from WMS Gingham & Co. in pink on some vintage cream cardstock and die cut that using a Button Card die. I also die cut a circle in the center using a Love Lives Here die and colored and attached the heart in the center. The wreath around the circle is from WPlus9 Spring Tags as well.

The I die cut a double ended banner and stamped my sentiment on it from WPlus9 Filigreed Frames. Then stamped the beautiful flower image above it from WPlus9 Spring Tags. The lace I used behind the tag is from M & J Trimmings.

I hope you liked that. I'll see you over at CASE Study Challenge Blog! Back to the drawing board for more cards for this Sunday's release! Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back on Saturday with another card. Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

Washington DC Trip

Hi friends! I don't have a card for you today. Instead. I'm sharing some of the pictures I took while we were on our little weekend break in Washington DC. It was a nice and cool weekend with some very mild showers that we didn't mind at all. It was great to do all that walking and not feel overly heated.

I'm very stingy with taking's unfortunate...but here's a bit of what I got.

There were rows and rows of these beautiful cherry blossom trees in parts of the National Mall. They were so beautiful. I had a bunch of the blossoms in my hair by the time we left.

Me and hubby. I seriously need to get a better camera! I've been thinking of getting a Canon Eos Rebel t3i just for this purpose. To be able to take a picture of us without anyone's help.

The flowers in the Flower Library were already in bloom. They were sooo beautiful! I don't even know what these are. lol. Sorry.

There was a festival concert going on at the center of the National Mall. But there was just sooo many people that we didn't want to squeeze in with everyone else. So we opted to go off on our own.

All in all, I love visiting Washington DC. It's my second time to go, but I think I wouldn't mind going again for some relaxing time. Actually, I wouldn't mind moving there all together! Heehee! 

I'm a bit busy making cards for a stamp release coming up this weekend, as well as making cards for my other DT assignments. I'll be back sometime mid week though with a card for everyone! See you soon! And thanks for stopping by! :)

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 90

Hi bloggers! Yay! It's finally the weekend. I made this post ahead of time because me and my husband are off to Washington DC to see the Cherry Blossom Festival. I'm excited to see it. I never have before. It's also a nice little break from work.  I'll have pictures posted when I get back. :)

Let's get going with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 90. We have a lovely sketch by Renee Lynch. I try to stay within the scope of the sketch as much as I can. But once in a while I like to play around with it. I'll show you what I mean. But first, here's Renee's sketch for this week's challenge.

So here's what I did with the sketch. I used an image from Florentine Frippery to flank my tag. I stamped it and heat embossed it so that it would stand out. Then I used a die from PTI to cut out the little blue panels and sewed them onto the patterned paper panel. 

I added some crocheted lace and seam binding ribbon to make it a little bit more "frilly". :)  I also added a key from Michael's to the knot. The floral ticket, I can't remember where I got it from exactly. I just know that I found it over at Pinterest. It was a free printable. I cut that out and adhered it on a tag. It's not too visible, but I actually stamped some of the flourish images from Paris Nouveau on the edges of the tag.

I also added this die cut from Ironworks Motifs by Spellbinders. Then I adhered the Webster's Pages silhouette/cameo over it. 

 I couldn't find links for the leaves. But they're from Recollections and they're distributed by Michael's. Then I attached the flowers over a portion of the leaves. They're from I am Roses

I hope you liked my card for today. I thoroughly enjoy looking through submissions over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I might not be able to comment on everything, but I try to as much as I can. So I hope I'll see your work over there! 

Thank you for stopping by today! I'll be back in a few days! Enjoy your weekend!
