Hello there Peeps!! Are you ready for Monday? No one was here, it’s rainy and still dark when the kids had to run to the bus. I couldn’t blame them for not wanting to get up…and McKinley said she hates it when people wake her up when she’s tired. ME TOO!!
I got some time in the craft room yesterday and set to work. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been able to play with some of my favorite challenges. I’d recently cleaned up a kit that I’ve had for quite awhile, so I used the scraps that were left to make today’s cards. (yes, more than one!!) The papers are older MME Miss Caroline papers.
I used MFT’s Umbrella Stamp and Die set, die cutting the smaller pieces. It worked out to make three umbrellas from that. So I made 3 cards.
I made this card for the CASE Study challenge. (Follow the link to check out the challenges!!) It was the reason I pulled out the Umbrella set. I went with the pink background, running it through the Big Shot with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. It looked a lil naked so I added the floral paper along the bottom.
I used two challenges on this card. The first one was from CASual Friday – which called to have something go off the edge of your card front. I made the card smaller for that reason – so it will fit in a regular envelope.
The second challenge is a new one I’ve found called CASE this sketch. It’s also Clean and Simple. The sketch looked like the perfect place for something to go off the edge. I wanted a sentiment too, so I added the small flag.
And for my final card, I used up the rest of the pieces for the umbrella and created a card for this week’s Deconstructed Sketch. I choose to work with a large 5.25 x 5.25” card. This photo makes the dark grey cardstock look black but it’s really more of a grey tone IRL.
Normally, I like to give each card it’s own post, but I thought they flowed well today. I hope you enjoyed the ideas. I enjoyed cleaning up some paper scraps and getting a few more cards done for my stash!!
Enjoy your Monday!!
