This card uses my current favorite color combination: turquoise and black. The flowers are from QuickKutz - Nesting Flowers Cookie Cutter dies. I dyed the lace with Distress ink to match
The white background was cut with a Tim Holtz die- Vintage Cabinet Card. The bee and sentiment are from a set by The Craft's Meow.
I've got a quick card today that's based on the Muse Challenge this week.
I used some Basic Grey paper and chipboard stickers and a sticker from Echo Park for the sentiment...I see now that I didn't get it stuck down real well. I don't do CAS very often, but this one went together pretty quickly.
I started out with a Paper Players sketch, but I spent too much time putting the whole card together and missed the deadline.
I used a doily rubber stamp from Momenta that comes in three pieces so you can layer them...love that! I used the smallest part and embossed it in gold, cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die, stamped the second largest section of my doily stamp and embossed it in dark green then cut that one with another Spellbinders die. I added some glitter glue accents in some of the empty spaces. The black scalloped layer I cut with decorative scissors. For the accents on the left side I just painted some pearls black. My little poinsettia came from Hobby Lobby. The houndstooth patterned paper has a bit of shimmer to it...so pretty! I also used a Martha Stewart edge punch under the gold trim: Deco Fan I believe.
Welcome everyone, I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with for today's hop! Here's the sketch I chose to use from the Operation Write Home blog:

I've been on hiatus from blogging for a while. I'm typically a woman of few words and I find it a bit difficult to sit down and type up something that might hold anybody else's attention for more than a minute. However I like to share the things I make and I love looking at other craft makers' blogs for ideas as well as participate in some of the challenges out there. I also like to have a record of my creations that I can go back to in the future, whether it's to use as inspiration for projects or just to see how far I've come. So this is really for me, and it's ok if nobody else ever reads it.
I had written up this post last year but somehow it got saved and never actually got published so I thought I'd go ahead and do it now. I still love how they came out so I'll share now. They sort of make me sad to look at because they were the last gift I gave to my Grandmother before she died last year. Here's the original post:
I created this box of tea bags and card to accompany some biscotti as a surprise for my Grandma. I'm wishing now that I would have taken some photos of the complete set, but I'm usually not in the mood for boring photo sessions and messing with less than adequate light. So here's what I've got. I used a tutorial for the tea bag box found here: http://runningwscissorsstamper.blogspot.com/2012/01/tea-bag-dispenser-project-details.html. I made a paper flower for the top of the box from book pages using a tutorial here: http://www.iloveitallwithmonikawright.com/2010/07/flower-tutorial.html . Papers are mostly from Echo Park.
