Clean & Simple Stampin' (#137)

Here is a card that I made using the C&S Layout #137, I used the opportunity to make a birthday card for my sister-in-law and also got to use some new paper that I thought she'd really like.  I also used some distressing ink around the edges.  I was pretty psyched to use the ticket on this one, I'm really into them right now and it was just begging to be stamped on!

Supplies used:
Paper: October Afternoon - 5 and Dime; Fancy Pants - It's the Little Things & Journal Tag; PTI Cardstock
Ink:  Tim Holtz Distressing Ink - Tea Dye; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Small Flower - Joann's; Sentiment - Stampin' Up
Foam Tape; Tape Gun; Ribbon; Scor Tape

Sketchin' (#83)

I'm totally spoiling the surprise for Kendra, but her birthday card just happens to be my Get Sketchy challenge for this week so I'm posting it for all to see!  When I saw the bird paper, I immediately thought "Kendra would love that!" so it went from there!  I used a bunch of things I have been wanting to use so I'm excited about this one. The ribbon started out as white and I used the Glimmer Mist to dye it and to spray the circle tag in the background.  I also used my Project Life date stamp to stamp her birthday on the other tag.

Supplies used:
Paper: Kraft Cardstock; Tree Paper (unknown); Creative Imaginations Corrugated Ivory; Cosmo Cricket - Everafter-Elements; It's the Little Things journal tags
Sentiment:  October Afternoon Sticky Keys
Tim Holtz Trinket Pin; Rayon Ribbon
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Vanilla Breeze (on ribbon and circle tag)
Date Stamp; Foam Tape; Tape Gun; Corner punch; Memento - Tuxedo Black Ink

I made these 2 cards before the craft fair, I got the general layout from a blog that I am obsessed with.  I want to make more of these and make a few changes and practice my messy stitch a bit more.


Just wanted to share a photo of our table at the Newport Craft Fair! Kendra & I had a great time and learned a lot at the craft fair in Newport.  We both sold 20+ cards and are looking forward to doing another show later in the year!
