Dainty Little Snowflakes

Every once in a while I like to create something just for the sake of creating!  I started out with good intentions with this card but ended up with me not loving the results.  Plan B proved equally unsuccessful. Eventually I think I needed a lunch break, a step outside and a few other minor distractions to get my focus back. 

That's when I started to create for the sake of creating - Simply sitting down and playing with color options, different stamping techniques and die cuts.  The key word here is playing!  Once I started playing my creativity started flowing :) So I present to you today a card I made just for the sake of creating!

I started off by heat embossing the background stamp onto colored cardstock.  The beautiful intricate stamp is called Lace Oval Frame Background Stamp.   Next I stamped and heat embossed one of the images from Lace Vintage Labels Three.  I used the Spellbinders 2013 Snowflake Pendant die to cut out the various shapes (Notice the pink snowflake has the stamped/embossed pattern on it) - see you I told you I was playing *lol*. Once that was all said and done all that was left to do was assemble my card with adhesive and foam squares and tie a pretty decorative bow!

There is lots more to see on the rest of the JustRite Team's blogs:

Thanks for spending part of you week with me.  Have a fabulously gorgeous & creative weekend

Elegant Congratulations Card

Dotted Fronds

While making this card today my daughter asked me for which occasion this was.  The first thought that popped into my head was Wedding of course.  She said she would love to receive it for her next birthday, her 10th!  Which, in her young mind is a major milestone event in her life.. So I present to you today a card I made that can be given to not just a bride, but a 16, 21, 80 and most certainly a 10 year old too :)

I love background stamps and this one is certainly a new favorite of mine.  It is called Dotted Fronds and is included in the latest release from JustRite Papercraft.  I heat embossed the stamp onto Kraft colored card stock and added tiny pearls to the pattern before adhering it to my card base.

The sentiment is also from JustRite Papercraft from a set called Large Elegant Sentiments.  I heat embossed the word Congratulations on lighter cream colored cardstock and die cut the tag using Antique Tags One Dies.  I love how it is barely noticeable unless the light catches it at a certain angle adding to the delicate and fragile nature of the card

I am sure you are all curious to see what the rest of the team has done with this set?  Grab a cuppa joe and get comfy - it's a good one :)

Thanks for stoppping by today :)  It's another gorgeous day in Colorado and I am going to be busy in my craft room.  Good times!
