Hello, I have been taking a small break from card making and have been tackling some design work on the computer. Details with what I have up my sleeve will come later! Anyways, Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a brand new topping starting. Glenda has asked us to use a non-neutral card base on our cards. Easy enough! The only thing about this card that is a tad bothersome is my flowers aren’t centered and too close to the top of the card. Oh well, It is what it is.
Card Details: Flowers are MFT, the Vase is a block stamp I have had for ages, the stems of my flowers are Elizabeth Craft Designs, the banner die is Spellbinders and the sentiment is Verve.
As you can tell I heat embossed my jar on a piece of decorative vellum from SU. Some sequins and clear gems and I was done.
Thanks for coming by and visiting and I hope you will consider joining us at Seize the Birthday! We would love to have you. Nanc’
Hello Friends, We have a fun Topping option for the next two weeks over at Seize the Birthday! Out topping is to add felt to your card and or project. This was a first time I have ever cut felt with a die cut before and I am in love with how well it worked with my MFT dies and my Sizzix machine. I have had this felt in my cabinet for years, (NBUS) and thrilled that I didn’t have to run out and get any. Cause you know…you run to the craft store for one thing and you come out with TEN! LOL Just look at those balloons …aren’t they super cute? As I warned you, I can’t get over my crush on these NEW Adorable Elephants from MFT. Swoon! This little guy was again colored with my Prisma Colored Pencils. The background heart cover plate and the grass is also MFT. The sentiment is part of the elephant stamp set as well. The scalloped circle is Spellbinders and the Stitched circle is SU.
I hope you will consider coming on over to Seize the Birthday to see what my fantastic teammates and Guest have done with their felt, and while you are there you will have a go at it yourself!
Also, you have to run on over to Darnell’s Blog and see what this fantastic, crafty and sweet of a lady has done with Bubble Wrap! Amazing! Take care, Nanc’
