Hope and Sympathy

Late last week, my uncle passed away after a long battle with melanoma.  He was very special, and I will miss him a great deal.  After learning of the news, I decided to funnel some of my sadness into creativity and made a bunch of sympathy cards that are featured over at Cut@Home today.  They use the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations Peacock Paisley paper.

Cut@Home had sent me about four pages of this gorgeous paper, so I decided to challenge myself to make four cards out of two sheets.  Here's a video that shows all of the cards I made:



Since it's Friday, and that means Friends with Flair, I wanted to highlight one of the pretties that I made using a Unity Stamp {May Hope Sustain You}.


I am entering this card into this month's Unity {Be Inspired} Challenge as well.

I hope you all have a blessed Memorial Day weekend.

Craftily yours,

Karen

Insta-Love Box

Karen N here from from Craftily Yours!  Today, I was challenged to do something 3D.  My first insta-love is in making cards, but I accepted the challenge, and here's what the gift card box I made:




That gorgeous twine is Natural White Timeless Twine, and I used some pretty Bella Creationz White Frost Sequins (coming soon).  I love the little extra sparkle sequins add to my project.  I used paper from one of my favorite lines, Basic Great Kioshi.  The stamps are from Bella Creationz (Oh Snap Set).

The little happy face inside the box (that holds the gift card) made me grin.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have you "liked" Timeless Twine on Facebook yet?  You should, so you stay up on all the lovely twine-tastic goodness....  

Craftily yours,

Happiness is...

HaPPy HumPday!  I'm up over on the Timeless Twine / Bella Creationz blog today.  Sometimes, happiness is a warm cup of coffee shared with a sweet friend.  Sometimes, coffee is just a way to make it through the day.  Either way, I decided to make a happy cup of coffee card for my post today!


That gorgeous twine is Chocolate Chip Timeless Twine, and I used some pretty Bella Creationz White Frost and Metallic Poppin Pink Sequins (coming soon).  I love the little extra sparkle sequins add to my card.  I love that the twine is perfectly coffee colored!  I used paper from Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning (fitting, don't you think?!) and stamps from Bella Creationz (moments captured from the Oh Snap Set) and from Dare2bArtzy.  The lace is from 3 Girl JAM.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have you "liked" Timeless Twine on Facebook yet?  You should, so you stay up on all the lovely twine-tastic goodness....

Happy Friday Hello

Why, hello!  It's good to see you! :)  I'm up over at 3 Girl JAM today with this fun and happy card using my all-time FAVORITE crinkle ribbon bundle - the Spooky Bundle.  Love these purples and greens.  Here's what I did:


That gorgeous lace is from the 3 Girl JAM Light and Bright Set.  The fun and easy "bow" is one that is inspired by former 3 Girl JAM DT, Donna.  I just took a few strips of the gorgeous spooky bundle ribbon and tied it with twine.  The paper is from Graphic 45, the twine is Timeless Twine, and the stamps are from Dare2BArtsy.  I made the flower dimensional by fussy cutting stamped and glittered images from vellum.  Finally, the pearls are from The Pearl Girl.

Thanks for stopping in today.  Remember that you can use code KN10 on the 3 Girl JAM Store for 10% off your whole purchase.

Craftily yours,

Karen
