A simple get well card using a 6” washi roll from Tim Holtz.
I’ve been in a yellow phase, which is very odd for me. I used Tim Holtz’s Floral Collage Paper for this notecard, accented with DCWV patterned paper (Lemon Flower stack) and an Anna Griffin sentiment. #thelittlewhatnotshop #constantlycreating #getwellcards
“Embrace Today” fast and easy card using the Flowers for Every Season packs, Thick Whisper White cardstock, and some retired Crushed Curry baker’s twine. I can help you make your own! . . . #thelittlewhatnotshop #constantlycreating #stampinup #stampinupdemonstrator #fastandeasy
I really am learning something. I never think I’m very good at shading, but I like how this turned out. Just goes to show that we should try things even when we’re unsure and give ourselves permission to learn or make mistakes. This embossed die-cut used to be all white. I used two colors of Dauber Duos and five colors of different brands of chalk inks (including a purple!). Looking forward to seeing what I do with it on a card. 🙂 #thelittlewhatnotshop #constantlycreating #chalkinks #colorbox #dauberduos ##powderpuff #ingvildbolme #purplebluegreen #cardmaking #diecuts #flowers
Used up some regifted scraps for this one, as well as Stampin’ Up ribbon and Martha Stewart pearls. It’s blank on the inside. Love how it turned out! #thelittlewhatnotshop #constantlycreating #notecards #scrappycards #blackberrybliss
I have several cards to share with you soon, but I thought I’d show a picture of my just-out-of-the-mailbox “Box of Sunshine” Paper Pumpkin Kit for June. I’m excited to get started on it!
Created this tonight for a custom order – a twist on one of the cards in the recently retired “Three Cheers for You” card kit from Stampin’ Up, using two of the stamps that came with it. I like my card better than the original! #constantlycreating #thelittlewhatnotshop #2020gradcards #graduationcards #2020 #threecheersforyou
I have another throwback card for you today from a few years ago. I’ve decided that I need to make another one! I used Stampin’ Up cardstock for the base and DCWV patterned paper for the background. I stamped the sentiment on a miscellaneous set of tags that I had to cut out, using the stamp set The Sky Is the Limit from Stampin’ Up. I used white Liquid Pearls in the plane’s trail so it would look like clouds. I edged the matched patterned paper with Baker’s twine for some dimension and definition. I finished off the card front with brads in the sentiment tag and die-cut gold corners from a Spellbinders die set. The inside of the card has more DCWV specialty paper, hand-punched holes in the borders, and the sentiment from The Sky Is the Limit set.
I have a throwback card today from 2013 (I’m sorry that the edge is cut off—it wasn’t an Instagram-required square photo!). This was one of the first cards I ever made, and I created it for a friend who told me it would go into her keeper box. Since she has since passed away, I just may make another in her honor. I matted Creative Memories stickers and used Ranger’s Glossy Accents on certain spots on all three images to highlight them. And as it was one of my first cards and I had a lot to learn, I tried to put black flocking on the sentiment and also stamped it a wee bit crooked. Oh, the things I’ve learned since then! 🙂
Since the previous post bumped over from one of my automatic setup things, it didn’t post the inside of the card. So here you go! This goes with the blue-flowered friendship card posted this morning on my blog. I stamped on vellum and heat-set it and then matted it with the same colored vellum from the front of the card. I then fussy-cut a little flower from the DSP and added it to the top with a tiny pearl. 🙂
