I hope your 4th of July has been blessed with celebrating our freedom, family & friends!
A quick card tonight from the infamous Bit’s & Pieces box. I had tried this background from StencilGirl for another project & it didn’t quite fit so grabbed it & it’s matching layer to create tonight’s card.
I used a scrap of the handpainted backgrounds from last Monday’s class for the sentiment which is a retired My Favorite Things Die-namics. A few sequins & it’s ready to bring a smile to someone.
I think I’ve finally got through the side effects of my knee shot & the knee seems to calming down, Yay!
Since I had a couple of errands today & we couldn’t miss the new episode of The Chosen tonight, I dug into the infamous Bits & Pieces box for today’s card.
Most of these die cuts have been hanging out in the box for about 3-4 years and when inspiration strikes made this great card. I cut the hello about a week ago to try for another card, it was too small & has been hanging out on my desk. Sometimes a little bit of this & that come together just right.
Tomorrow I get to tidy up the studio as the granddaughters get to hang out Friday. Hopefully they will enjoy coloring & painting or just hanging out to play.
Spent part of the day working/planning some home projects and finishing my Father’s Day cards, which I will start sharing tomorrow.
For tonight’s card I dug into the infamous Bits & Pieces box.
A fun butterfly card and a reminder to keep smiling & sharing joy throughout each day. What the camera & the light box capture is always interesting. In real life the sequins aren’t quite that bright blue but in the reflection of the light & lens they seem to stand out more.
I was finally able to catch up with a few things today after our trip including some much needed rest.
I dug into the infamous Bits & Pieces box to create today’s card.
I watched a couple of short art videos & one inspired me to dig into my Bits & Pieces box. Everything was already pre-cut, I just added a hint of stenciling to the white oval to give it a little more pizzazz. Fast & easy.
I’m hoping to spend a bit more time creating tomorrow. Hubby is still home on vacation so sometimes what I plan doesn’t match up with what he plans.
Some days depending on the projects I am working on, it’s a grab what’s on your desk or the infamous Bits & Pieces box to create. Today it’s what was on my desk from another project.
This card took about 15 minutes to put together.
I probably don’t play with patterned paper as much as I should and this Dandelion Dreams paper from Creative Expressions is just beautiful. I’m glad I ordered extra with the Simon Says Dandelion Messages kit.
I used Unity Stamp Co. Say It Big Sentiments dies with the SSS Dandelion Die from the card kit and an older die for the wishes. To add a bit more sparkle, I dotted an outline around the dandelion with a Star Dust Gelly Roll pen.
I had to make myself stop creating or I could have easily pulled an all-nighter as I was in the zone on one of my projects.
I did take a few minutes, scrounged up some scraps and made this quick card.
The background is an extra from several years ago when I shared my ink pad swirl technique. The borders are small thin scraps from other projects with watercolor backgrounds and even the dragonflies are punched from a similar scrap. I just die cut the sentiment & put it all together.
