For my first card, I chose a dieting card, since so many of my friends and colleagues are constantly dieting and worrying about their weight. ; ) It is kind of a fun card that I've incorporated a fork and spoon cut from my Cricut machine. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with an oval die by Spellbinders. I stamped the frame that comes in the set, in gray, to emulate a plate. and cut it out with Spellbinder's new die, Nested Oval Medallion , and then again with blue paper.
It needed a pop of color so I chose this bright orange! I stuck some pink pom poms underneath, just for a touch of whimsy!
This second card was created for all my crafty friends out there! When in doubt, create art! It is definitely therapy for me. When the day stinks and everything is going wrong, I just hide away in my lil' craft room and create! I stamped the frame in brown and cut it out with Spellbinder's Nested Oval Medallion die. I inked the edges a bit and covered it with Helmar's Crackle Medium. Once both steps were completed I ran my brown ink over the cracks. I swiped a bit of cranberry ink over the edges as well.
The little scissors and spool were stamped and cut out very carefully. I took cream twine and colored it with my Copics to get a perfect cranberry color! I wrapped it around the spool and adhered it to my card.
I added a flower that was cut using a die from Papertrey ink and book paper. I covered them with a bit of glossy accents and sprinkled with Clear glitter. I tied black seam binding into a bow and glued it to the bottom of my image. I adhered the flowers to the center of the seam binding. I added a resin piece, by Melissa Frances, under it.
Here is this fun set in its entirety! Don't ya love it?!
Well my Christmas break is officially over....it is time to join the real world again! ; ) Have a great day my friends!
