Good evening fellow crafters! It is nearly midnight here and I am just about falling asleep here in my craft room, but I wanted to go ahead and share my card for this weeks' Make it Monday challenge over at Nichole's blog.
This week the challenge is hosted by Ashley Cannon-Newell and the challenge is to incorporate die cuts into a banner. I say a banner card last month on YouTube by Kristina Werner and I just loved her card, so I decided to re-create it for this challenge.
It is a standard A2 size card made from my favorite, Kraft cardstock!
I used Papertrey Ink's Heart-2-Heart stamp sets #3, #5, and #6, as well as the coordinating heart die for set #3. I used Stampin' Up inkpads in Lovely Lilac, Pink Passion, Yoyo yellow, and Green Galore to stamp the hearts. I used Only Orange for the sun and Tempting Turquoise for the clouds. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede. I used some brown/white Martha Stewart twine, and added some dash lines around the card with a white gel pen. I glued the hearts to the twine the way Ashley does in the video tutorial, then propped them up onto my card base with dimensionals. I love all these colors together, they make the card bright and cheery!
The girls are back to school this week, and we are slowly getting back into our daily routines. No more sleeping in here, which is probably why I am so tired. I love back to school time because that means I can go back to regular morning work schedules, and be home more in the evening. I do still work late on Wednesdays, which means I have a good 5-6 hours to myself tomorrow morning! I have to admit, I cannot wait for some quiet, "me" time, even if I will be spending that time cleaning up this mess:
Have a great rest of the week everyone, thanks for stopping by!
