Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Crafty Friends – Annie here with another card for you. In keeping with this months theme of Give Thanks – I created a Thanksgiving card. Perfect to give the hostess of the Thanksgiving gathering you are attending or mailing it out to family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving


Using Hero Arts Layering Bird stamps make this is a quick and simple card. I simply followed the layering steps that on the back of the package for the bird, the stem and flower to stamp onto white card stock. Then I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Celebrations Stamp Set onto white card stock and trimmed and layered onto yellow card stock.  Then, I adhered the card front to the purple card stock then the card base. Finished off the card with a few sequins and the card was complete.

A Bushel & A Peck

Hello Friends Annie here with another quick card. So, Tell me did you ever hear the song I love you a bushel and a Peck… and a hug around the neck. It’s my husband’s favorite childhood song – his mom always sang it to him.

When, I saw the Farmhouse digital Set by Sugartree Stamps I knew I had to use it to create a sweet card.

I used the bushel of apples and the sentiment I Love You A Bushel & A Peck. I kept it CAS in keeping with this month’s challenge.

Bushel & a Peck

I printed out the image and sentiment. I colored the Baskets and apples with my alcohol markers; I then fussy cut them out. Next, I trim heavy weight cream colored cardstock and a 2″ piece of plaid pattern paper from American Crafts. I die cut my Sentiment with a stitched rectangle die. I then layered the cream cardstock onto my Kraft card base (4.25″ X 5.5″). Next the plaid pattern paper. I popped up the image and sentiment. For Finshing touches I used a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in Gold for details on the basket, Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in White to add highlights on the apples and finally a few dots of Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold.

I hope to have been playing along with us this month Clean and Simple cards are a great way to get a few cards done in a day. Be sure to link up you project so we can all see your wonderful work.

You can find the Farmhouse digital Set by Sugartree Stamps in the Store.  Have a fantastic crafting day!

Poetic Petals Card Set

Hello Friends – Annie here with another fun project. As we are nearing the holiday season most of us will be invited to parties and functions. A hostess gift is always a nice thing to bring and give. Or perhaps you are already working on your gifts for the upcoming season.

A simple set of small cards perfect for quick thank you’s or hello’s is a nice and easy thing to have ready to give.

I created this set of card using the Poetic Petals Digital from Hero Arts Poetic Petals Digital from Hero Arts  which is perfect for these small cards.

Here are the cards I created. I kept them simple to fit our current challenge.

First, I resized the flowers and printed them onto alcohol marker friendly paper. Then I colored them with my Spectrum Noir Markers (see below for colors). I then fussy cut them out.

Second, I cut 4 pieces of heavy weight white cardstock to 3″ X 8″. Score at 4″. Then, I put a circle color from Distress Oxide ink. (you can use any ink here) that compliments the flowers. This will provide a landing spot for the flowers.

 

Third, I placed foam adhesive behind the flowers and place onto the circle of color. Then, I  added some finishing touches with Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in Gold in the center of the flowers and some Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops. Repeat for all cards.  

    

Now you have a full set of cards. Add some mini envelops and place them in a gift card box. You have the perfect hostess gift.

So, stop on over to the shop and pick up this beautiful digital download – I can’t wait to see what you create with it! Have a fantastic crafting day!
