Good evening! How is everyone? I’m doing great even though it’s gloomy and pouring out. I’m not ready for this weather yet. But it does make for a perfect crafting day. Today’s card was made for a challenge at Paper Playtime. It’s a fun challenge blog and I recommend checking it out. Janis is very sweet and has lots of inspiration on her blog.

This weeks challenge was to create a project with shoes or showing variety. This was the perfect opportunity for me to use my Summer in Paris cart. I cut the high heel at 3 inches using iridescent white vellum paper. (I’m loving vellum after making my Vellum Tea Light Toppers!) Then I stamped the card base using the Close to my Heart, Be Yourself stamp set. Lastly I added pink rhinestones to the high heel and corned rounded the bottom edges of the card base. I used Creative Memories vellum adhesive to adhere the high heel to the card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you participated in the Fall Blog Hop yesterday the winner will be announced Monday morning! So be sure to come back and see if you are the Blog Candy winner!!!

Perfect card to give to a best friend!

I love how vellum lets the words underneath show through.

I made this card back in January for my boyfriend’s sister. She turned 17 and I wanted to make her a special card. I think this card was perfect for her as it’s both youthful and sweet. The stamped image is from the Be Yourself stamp set, from Close To My Heart. I stamped her using Colorbox chalk ink in Black Bird. The jewel in her hair is from Heidi Swapp. I really love the Be Yourself stamp set. It can work for so many different occasions. I embossed the pink cardstock with my swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder. I inked the edges of the white cardstock with pink pigment ink and tied pink ribbon around it. Then I used pop-dots to adhere it to the pink cardstock. The inside sentiment is from Anna Griffin. This is an simple, pretty and quick card to make.

This clean and classy card was made using the Be Yourself stamp set from Close To My Heart.

I simply stamped the silhouette on the card base using color box chalk ink in black bird. Then I stamped her another time on some scratch paper, so I could get the outline of her dress. I cut out each piece of the dress, traced them onto patterned paper and cut out each piece. I then pieced them on top of the silhouette that I stamped on the card front. Lastly I stamped the sentiment and tied sheer hot pink ribbon around the card.

Happy Birthday Julie & to all you December babies! 🙂
