Favorites Challenge and FWF

I made this card for the recent favorites challenge at Crop Chocolate.  We had to use a stamp and something that is our favorite.  Well my favorite stamps are Unity, my favorite card is an easel card, my favorite dies are spellbinders, and the butterfly ones are my favorite and my favorite paper is the heavy textured paper like I used on this card.

Supplied used:  Spellbinders Blossom tags and accents, Spellbinders Flying Beauties, Unity Blossom Stackers, MME So Sophie

A Huge Thanks

Last week our beloved cat got lost, and despite looking everywhere we could not find her.  She is an indoor cat and at first I thought she was hiding in the house but I soon realized she was not in the house.  She must have gotten out somehow, because a neighbour who saw one of my lost cat posters found her hiding under her deck.  She was missing for a few days and must have spent the entire time there because she was quite scarred of their dog and had to be coaxed out.  I made this card for the Red & White Challenge at Crop Chocolate and FWF at Unity Stamps.  This is a thank you card for the wonderful neighbours who found her and helped get her home.

Supplies used:  Trinity Paper Arts Sincerely Yours paper, Unity Blossom Stackers, Spellbinders Floral Doiley motifs, Spellbinders Samantha Walker Blossom tags and accents, distress ink, and bling

Spellbinders International Flair - Shadow Box

I have to admit I have become addicted to making these shadow boxes, and when I received my radiant rectangles recently all I could think about was beautiful it would be for a shadow box.  This has to be one of my favorite die sets and I honestly don't think the online pictures it justice you need to see it in person.  It is very versatile and you can mix and match to create endless combinations.  It love the delicacy and detail in the designs, I can tell it will become one of my go to dies.  I made a tutorial on instructagram and here is the blog post  if you want to make your own shadow box. I used the beautiful stamps created by Momas a fellow International Blog Ambassador (Image is from Hibiscus and Lily, and the sentiment is from Dogwood and Roses).

 Supplies used: Spellbinders radiant rectangles, spellbinders fleur de lis accents and motifs, Momas stamps (Hibiscus and Lily, Dogwood and Roses) MME L&F Market Street Paper

Cocoa Creators Challenge #2

The challenges are continuing at Crop Chocolate and I made this one based on DeeDee's awesome sketch.  I am not normally a one picture scrapbooker so this was a challenge but I think it turned out nicely.  This is a picture taken of my son when he was born.  I am behind on his album and I am trying to use the challenges as a way to get it caught up (wish me luck).



Supplies used:  MME Miss Caroline, VLVS Chicken Wire Stamp, Unity Stamps Hearty Barley, EK Sucess Star Punch, Spellbinders Page Maps
