from the bottom of my heart

Hi!  I thought I would squeeze in a quick post before I go do my first school pick up of the day.  TGF has a new sketch over on SCS and my card today was inspired by it. 

The sketch was created by our Challenge Captain Peggy Toole.

This is my simple take of the sketch.  I used TGF's Blush Thanks and heat embossed it on a Cheery Lynn Heart diecut.  Then I also stamped and heat embossed those spots on the edges of the heart using TGF's Splotchy set. 

A little close up.  I added some pearls too.  The base of the card was impressed with PTI's woodgrain impression plate.

I hand wrote the sentiment on PTI's tag die cut and added that pretty flower I recently bought from Taj, a local store here.  The leaves are from Maya Road. 

I'm trying to be better about mentioning the actual products I use but I'm not in the habit of listing the Copic colors I used.  If that is something you want to know, leave a comment or email.  I'll try to better about it.  Just that after I color I just toss the pens back in the container!

Anyway, hope you join in on the sketch!  Click HERE for the link and the keyword info. 

Thanks for reading!

Wow, no coloring! But fabulous card nevertheless! Copics look difficult, I don't think I'm going there. I'll just admire your coloring :)

Gorgeous!!! Love the heat embossing, looks fantastic! I really like how you filled in the sides of the heart with the splotchy set! Very cool!
Eva this is just stunning! I love how you have stamped all of that text over the heart...the white really pops against the kraft. Beautiful job! :)

I looked at the sketch and couldn't wrap it around my head...I completely drew a blank. Yet, here you are with some fabulous inspiration on that same sketch. Great card!

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.
