Paper craft project no. 481: Warm winter wishes

Hello! Sharing a card for the current challenge at Time Out. There is still a week left to play over there. It's a winter theme with the optional technique twist of white on white.

I went with the theme and partially did the twist as you can see with the white card base and white die-cut sentiment skipped. I stamped the snowman, postage stamp, and postmark (from Gone Postal) and used Tombow dual brush pens to color. Then I die-cut the sentiment (CUTplorations Warm Winter Wishes word die) and adhered it to the card base. I finished the card by rounding one corner.

Check out the cards that the TO team + guest designer Claire made and then come play with us. Uniko is sponsoring the challenge.

My best ever treasure

Well now. This girl up and went and stole my heart...again. Every time my little girl looks up and smiles at me, I feel invincible and my heart swells up with immense pride and joy. 

How someone like me ever was given such a precious gift is something I'll never be able to understand, but I accept it with my whole heart. 

My best ever achievement. My best ever treasure. 

Happy 2017, fellow creatives! I hope your year is as great as mine already is.

Paper craft project no. 480: Follow your bliss

Hey there! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I'm back with a short post for a card I created for the current challenge at Time Out. It's an Inspired by Words challenge: "With each sunrise we are given a chance for a new beginning." 

Last week, I went CAS with an almost one layer card. This time around, I went with an artsy, grungy, messy one layer card. I did a little brainstorming and word association: a new beginning to me means a fresh start; a fresh start means having the opportunity to follow what makes the heart happy -- essentially following one's bliss :o) I stamped the daffodils (Large Narcissus) using Marabu Art Crayons first and then did some random stamping of the butterflies (Butterfly Row). I layered some rub-ons (7Gypsies) to create a grungy collage look and sponged pumpkin pie HA ink over the images. And last, I stamped the sentiment from Typografia

Check out the cards that the TO team + guest designer Marina made and then come play with us! STAMPlorations is sponsoring the challenge, with the winner receiving a $20 gift certificate and the honorable mentions each receiving a $10 gift certificate.
