Set of notecards

Yesterday was a busy day so I didn’t get much done in the craft room.  We woke up to 3″ of snow but thankfully it has all melted off now.  Its cold today but the sun is shining. 

This set of cards are pretty easy. Its always nice to have some notecards on hand and at this time, when we are isolated from each other, sending a card to someone can really brighten their day. 

I used the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder to create the background, leaving a blank space so I could stamp “hello” from Hero Arts.  I used Avery Elle Fog pigment ink pad.  I used papers from Recollections Dreamy paper pad. 

You can find some of the supplies here:

Woke up to snow!

We woke up to snow this morning!  Its turned to rain now but we are supposed to get more snow overnight.  Thankfully these spring snow storms usually melt off quickly.  Despite the rain, I can see people out walking their dogs in the park. I’ve been watching Netflix this morning, curled up in a blanket, with my dog in my lap.  Nice and cozy! 

Last night, I managed to put a card together. Its very simple and everything I used has been in my stash for a long time.  Here it is:

The stamp is by Trinity stamps and I think it was from a monthly kit by Scrapping For Less. I think it may have been an exclusive as I can’t find it on the website.  The embossing folder is by Sizzix and has been discontinued.  I stamped the flower and then colored it with alcohol markers.  Then I fussy cut it out.  I embossed the background using Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 80lb cardstock.  I wrapped a green sheer ribbon around it and layered some yellow cardstock around it.  I adhered the flower with Scotch 3M foam tape and put it all on an A2 cardbase which was made using Recollections heavy weight white cardstock.  Thats it.  Very simple.  
I hope you are staying well and safe.  See you next time!
