Enjoy Your Day

Hello there!  I am back again with a masculine birthday card.  I find that these cards can be the most difficult to make because they need to be clean, simple, and have very little frilly to them.  I always find that if I keep it simple, it usually works well.

I started off with this great sketch from The Paper Players

I pulled some masculine type prints from the Eastern Palace SDSP, and the matching dapper denim card stock.

I paper pieced "birth" in to make it more of a birthday card. I love the stitched framelits, such a perfect background

Add some masculine twine, and this card is done, just walk away, DO NOT add ribbon or embellishments! 

This will be off, and it's nice and easy to mail!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Spooky Night meets Eastern Palace

Hello there!  I'm back from a year long hiatus!  A lot has happened since I blogged last, we have moved to Virginia, Mackie is in her second year of college at Christopher Newport University, and Tate is settling in to his new school and meeting great new friends.  I haven't stopped crafting entirely, just not as much, and have not shared any of it.  I feel that I am in a better place to pick back up and start blogging again.  So grab your coffee, and settle in for a cute Halloween project!

I started out again with a sketch fro the Global Design Project, online challenges are great for a starting point, and this is a great sketch, it was very helpful.

Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays, I always love to create fun projects and cards using whatever Halloween stuff I can get my hands on.

Hmmm, this new mini sequin trim is fabulous, I even love the new polka dot embossing folder!  You can see the pop of fresh fig from the Eastern palace DSP.

I had to make a matching envelope with my new striped treat bags, I love the gold!  I am going to ease back into the blogging, I even have another card for you in a few days.  The products I used are below.  If you have any questions, please let me know!  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are inspired, enjoy!
