rainbow hearts

Hi!  Feels like a while since I made anything.  I've been taking a break from crafting and went on a field trip with my son and his class.  I even got my haircut and did a bit of window shopping yesterday at the mall.  I finally finished up a card last night for Tiddly Inks photo inspiration challenge (with a subtle 2).  You can click on the link to see the photo.  Rainbow colors!  That's what I went with.

I chose Heartfelt Love cause I love Wryn and those hanging hearts!  Colored the hearts in rainbow colors and yes, I have to admit I forgot about the subtle 2 part til the end and thought darn it, what about subtle 3?  Like 3 hearts and 3 rhinestones?  Okay, so I had just tied the twine on so I just looped it around again for the 2.  And there are also the 2 rows of polka dots around the image.  I also rounded the bottom corners of this card.

I knew I wanted to color the hearts all rainbow-y so I started looking for a sentiment or a quote about rainbows and hearts and found the one above that I printed out too.  There is a second line to the quote as well -- You know you're a part of that colorful, magical, feeling you'll find, when you have a rainbow inside.  But I opted to leave that part out cause I didn't quite get it.  Anyway, it was an anonymous quote that I thought fit in nicely with the image.  The quote can be found HERE.

This was a nice and simple card for me.  Kind of relaxing to just color, add a few embellishments and be done.  Thanks for reading!


Awesome Eva - love the colors of the rainbow... What a pretty card...And thanks for the link of the sentiment... This will come in handy....
Have a crafty weekend...

Fun pastel rainbow colors! I forgot all about the 2, too! Love the bling at the top of the string on the hearts, cute touch!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
