SOS489 - Love is in the Air & gnomes

 Our newest challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Love Is In The Air and we want to see everyone's love related creations

I don't really make Valentine cards, but I found these cute gnome stickers in Dollarama and just had to buy them. Love how they each hold a letter spelling out LOVE.

Kendra's Card Challenge meets Echo Park Baby Girl papers

 I made these cards for the current challenge at Kendra's Card Challenge FB group. I'm low on baby cards so I decided to use baby themed paper and make some more. I used a paper pack called Baby Girl from Echo Park.

For some cards I used this cute Penny Black hedgehog stamp - I quickly colored it with alcohol markers
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Something New (baby)

on 4 cards I used these baby themed stamps from Craft's Meow
Everybody Art - New (new baby)
Inkspirational - New or Welcome (baby)
Get Creative -  Something New

and on some just used the cut aparts from the paper pad

SOS487 - Pyjama Day

 Our newest challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Pyjama day and we want to see projects inspired by peoples' PJs.

What inspired me about my PJs is the combination of polka dots and flowers, color combination of pink, red and grey and the layering flowers. My card turned out quite darker than the PJs, but I'm pretty sure you can see the inspiration. The stamps are from Altenew (I think), everything else is Stampin' Up.
The polka dots were done by inking an embossing folder and running it through my big shot.

SOS485 - Holly & Ivy

 Our newest challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Holly & Ivy and we want to see any kind of Christmas greenery on your projects - trees, wreaths, mistletoe, poinsettias...
For my cards I used patterned paper pad from The Paper Boutique - it's a fun pad to work with when you need some quick cards as it has toppers, sentiments and strips of paper too.

Scrappy Christmas Cards

 I like this month's sketch from Call Me Crafty Al SheetLoad of Cards - but instead of using new sheets of DSP I decided to use leftovers from various Christmas paper collections. This sketch is perfect for it because you only needs strips that are 1.75" or 1" wide. In total I made 16 cards. All the sentiments and most of the CS are from SU.

For the cards in the first picture I used scraps from older BoBunny and MME collections

These are older SU papers - dies are SU too.

Allsorts - Add a Sentiment
As You Like It - Fav Christmas Style - mine is contemporary  - because it feels fun and fresh

Sycamore Street 7 - final cards

 I finally manged to turn the whole pack of Sycamore Street paper into cards. I started this process in April, this is the 7th post and if I'm counting correctly I made 31 cards. I got a bit side-tracked with other craft projects and my garden.

Jaded Blossom gnome dies work great with these fun colors so I made 3 more gnomie cards

The Fairy and the Unicorn - Anything Fantasy Goes
Happy Little Stampers - AG with Dies

and used the rest of the papers for these cards
all stamps in this image are Stampin Up, except the girl on the bicycle, which is Penny Black

SOS479 - Ombre leaves

Our newest challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Hey (h)Ombre and as the title suggests we want to see ombre on players projects.

for my card I started with Crumb Cake CS and inked it with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Chocolate and Early Espresso inks to create the ombre effect. Then I applied the rub-on leaves  I found in DolarTree. Added some water splatter for effect and finished it of with gold cord and gold layer.
