Had to clean out my craft room a bit to make room for a new paper trimmer. Got tired of crooked cuts with my largish Fiskars, so bit the bullet and bought a Rotatrim. I'm still getting used to it, so will let you know how well I like it. I can say this much about it...it cuts like a dream. And some of that clutter that I shoved into drawers a while back has now been recycled, or moved to more logical places. Felt pretty good getting a little more organized. Hopefully more organization will come later this year.
Onto the cards. Plural. I know, right?! Sure feels good to be back!! I've got two cards for three challenges today.
The lovely Lisa Lara left a comment on my last post, and as I was perusing CASology, I saw she'd posted a sweet card there. I'd made this before I'd seen her card, but I'm fairly certain that great minds do think alike, lol!!
The stamps are all by Taylored Expressions, and I stamped one layer of the tissue box on some fun yellow polka dotted paper then fussy cut it. EZPZ Lemon Squeezy.
Then I had to go and get all different. City Crafter's Challenge asks us to use the word 'hello.' After taking a peek at The Card Concept, this card came to mind.
I think this is in the 'Freestyle Collage' category. That's an Altenew Peony stamp, with assorted inks, a chunk of b&w sort of polka dotted paper, a strip of black ribbon, a black cardstock panel, some gold sequins and a NBUS 'hello' die from Savvy cut in gold paper. Popped up the flower but not the leaves. Kinda like it. Hope you do too. Have a fantastic weekend, and happy dances everyone.
