Three Cards for Monday

I meant to get to a couple of these cards yesterday, but DH needed a little extra care, so that's where my time went. He's fine, but I wasn't able to write a post. I'd made the card for the current Time Out Challenge on Saturday and was waiting till daylight yesterday to photograph it; obviously that didn't happen. Finished the card for Laurel Seabrook's new Inspired By challenge yesterday also, but was unable to get to it. Then I made one for Inspired By All The Little Things latest challenge this morning. Whew! Planted DH with his breakfast, and will try to get this post written and up without any more chatter....

First card for Time Out:




Found a hoarded saved scrap of gray patterned paper which jumped into my hands and wouldn't let go. Used an MFT rectangle to cut a white panel, and added a panel beneath stamped with a large Hero Arts stamp using some ME Winter ink. Verve sentiment stamped in ME Smoke gray. 

Second card for Inspired By:



Started with a kraft base, and grabbed an ancient piece of blue and white polka dotted paper. The polkies are actually embossed! Those are MFT circles, and an MB snowflake die. I added some flocking to the snowflake and a diamond bling in its center. Stamped an MFT sentiment and used a white gel pen to add "snow" to the tops of the letters. Looks so cool in real life...

And last but not least, a card for Inspired By All The Little Things:




LOVE that inspiration photo!!! A bit of American Craft patterned paper beneath the white panel, and the branches and sweet, little fox are from WPlus9. An MFT sentiment in Basil Fresh Ink ink. EZPZ lemon squeezy!!  The orange-ish paper on the fox actually has a little shimmer, which didn't photograph well, sorry.  And as promised, I will let you go for now. See you on Wednesday when the Twofer Challenge launches!!!!

Oh my, that little fox is just darling, Bev ... he couldn't be a more perfect response to the inspiration, especially paired with that sweet background PP! Your polka dot backed snowflake 'cookie' is scrumptious ... crisp, precise, delicious! What a cool, graphic and downright handsome thanks card ... the patterns are brilliant together ... that centre one has a fun, fabulous, funky vibe to it! So delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out, my friend! Big hugs & bisous, Anita :)

I love it when you plant the husband and get a chance to get crafty, Bevie! What a treat you have for us with THREE makes and I love them all! It's genius to put the "snow" on top of your sediment - must remember that! Of course, I'm partial to your foxie card! It's adorable! Even the PP is perfect! Thank you for playing at IBATLT!! See on Wednesday for the After Party! YAY!!!!! Hugs, Darnell xxoo

Wonderful cards, Bev! I especially love your sweet fox on the last one! Great take on the inspiration photo!

Bobby said...

You make good use of your craft time, Bev, because these are are outstanding. The blue polka dots are perfect for your snowflake and a great take on the 'new' challenge. I love the snow on the sentiment. I don't know why I don't have a fox stamp because he is adorable.

Kara Lynne said...

Three fantastic cards, Bev! I love the graphic papers on your thank you card and the embossed polka dots on your snowflake design. Flocking! What a great way to treat a snowflake, and I love the snow on the sentiment too! Your little fox set on those green sprigs and paired with the patterned paper perfectly captures the feel of that photo. They are all wonderful!

Great to see you have had some crafty time and hubby is a bit better now. I adore how soft your card for Time Out is and that cheeky little fox makes me smile! Thanks for joining Time Out

Three super sweet cards, Bev! And let's not talk about all the 'saved' scrap paper! LOL (I've been trying to dig through my stash. Trying. is the keyword there. lol) Your fox is already cute, I bet that shimmer adds that extra pop! Though, don't feel bad about not capturing it because I can't figure that one out yet either! So you're not alone, my friend. ;)
Hope you have a great week, take care...hugs

Oh look at these three delights! Love the simplicity of the first one (that paper is gorgeous), the pretty snowflake and especially the snow on the words (brilliant!) of the second one, and the high cuteness factor of the last one with the fox and the patterned frame!
Only one more sleep...!
