Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop


It's time for Papertrey Ink's March Blog Hop. I have a quick card and post cuz i have to hit the books and keep studying for my Organic/Bio Chemistry test later this week (Ugh!!)

CAS cards come in handy when you need a clean and simple card! I stamped and embossed the flowers and sentiment.

Spritz some green ink spray, let it dry and then glued on a few sequins. Easy peasy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Country Mother's Day

Hello Everyone!

I have a super quick post today. Its been a busy weekend of studying, working and card making, so i'm making this post short and sweet, but it took me a week to finish the card, working on it each day for 10 or 15 minutes depending on time available!

I'm submitting this to Paper Crafts March Gallery Challenge. The challenge is country, so i dug deep into my stamps and embellishments and this is what i came up with!

The peach flower is a piece of fabric that i spritzed with ink, then made the flower. The brown and green button is a vintage button. The brown button i made with a button maker kit and brown fabric.

That's it today! I'll be back tomorrow with a card for Papertrey Ink's March Blog Hop! CAS cards are so nice with time so scarce, stop by for my fastest card ever!! :)

Orange and Mint


How is everyone?!?! I know its been awhile since my last post, unfortunately my Organic/Bio Chemistry class this semester is taking up must of my time!!! But this past week was Spring Break and i was finally able to get into my craft room! I made a couple DT cards and a card for a contest. I also did a card for a color challenge, but i missed the challenge, but i'm posting it anyway!

The color challenge included a dark and light orange along with mint. I really like this color combo, especially since orange is my favorite color!!! I'm also really loving the minty clothing and accessory's that you can find in stores lately!

I also wanted to play with a new spritz that i found at Michael's. For my card i stamped and embossed a houndstooth background, spritz, let it dry, then wiped the embossed areas lightly with a damp baby wipe. I trimmed it to fit my cardbase.

I trimmed a scrap piece of cardstock and stitched mint bakers twine around the rectangle. Then i stamped Happy Mother's Day.

I found some minty music pattern paper and die cut some flowers, and amazingly found some pearls that matched! I adhered the flowers to the orange piece, then to the houndstooth and finally to my cardbase.

I hope i'll be able to get back to the craft room soon! Just a month and half left of chemistry... hopefully i'll make it to the end! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by!
