Scene It Saturday 7-2019

I made a fun scene for my sister-in-law who is having a special birthday.

I have been wanting to use this image from Unity November 2018 KOM and finally had a chance to make this cute card.  I used a paper piecing technique for the dress, shoes and ottoman.  All of the papers are from a K & Co. paper pad called McKenna.  I also used paper from the pack for the wallpaper and drew a thick line with a Spectrum Noir marker across the bottom for the baseboard. The floor is just a scrap of green paper. I think she will get a kick out of it since turning sixty is a special kind of birthday. - Denise

Color Me Friday 7-2019

The color scheme for this month is red, pink, and white.  I elected to only use the pink and white.

This is another quick set of cards.  I started with a paper from the DCWV paper stack called The Girl Stack.  It has a ton of papers in it and I have hardly put a dent in it in past several years. I cut a couple of pieces of the pink denim paper and white heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom.  I used another piece to white heat emboss the heart.  Both are from Unity Stamp Company KOM December 2018 Friend til the End. I cut it out leaving a little of the pink around the white edge.  That allowed it to show up on the white doilies from Ms Sparkle & Co.  Those are also something I don't use a lot and I am forcing myself to use some of my stash.  I mounted that on the pink then matted it on white.  I used a pink card base. I think these look sweet. - Denise

Inspiration Thursday 7-2019

This is the inspiration board we have for this month.

I took the black and white pattern as the inspiration for my card.

I had a 6 x 6 paper pack from Heidi Swapp called Favorite Things. I am addicted to those pads and like to grab them for quick cards.  I used two of the patterns from that pack (the pink is pretty subtle.  I used a sentiment from Unity December 2018 KOM.  I used a postage nesting die set to sort of match the pattern in the paper.  I also used a ribbon from American Crafts.  I have all these ribbons, but never think to use them.  It actually helped set this card off. - I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day - Denise
