Sassy New Mommy Cards

| craft life, crafty gal, greeting cards, Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hi Friends,

Today I am sharing two cards I made for the B is for the Birds & the Bees Challenge on the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers blog. I found this fun blog a few weeks ago and I just love making cards with a little sass.

Both of the cards I made are pocket cards and they measure 5 x 5 inches each.

I added blank tags on the inside with lots of space to write a message.

The images I used are vintage images I found on Pinterest. I added a bit of sass in the messages on each card.

The paper collection I used was the Petticoats & Pinstripes collection by Lori Whitlock/Echo Park.

I decorated each card with a flower cluster, tulle and pearl dots.

Lastly, I created dimension by adding pop dots to multiple layers of each card.

This was a fun challenge and you can still play along at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stamper blog here.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my cards!

Instant Smile In A Cup: Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

| card making, Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, craft life, crafty gal, greeting cards

Happy Friday!

I have a fun project share for you today which is also my card for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.

The theme was Spring/Summer and although the lady in the image I used is wearing a sweater I am positive it’s probably because its cold inside the coffee shop.

I created a 6 x 6 card with a gorgeous image from Krista Smith. You may love Krista’s designs as much as I do and remember her designs as Saturated Canary. The image I used is the Once A Month Image April 2019. You can find it in her Etsy Shop: Shop Krista Smith here.

The paper collection I used is from my very own collection, Magic Bean and you can find that here.

I colored up the image with my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted the card to be dimensional so added a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and 5 x 5 layers on pop dots and then an oval cutout for the image with more pop dots.

The sentiment stamp I used “Instant Smile in a cup” is from the Greeting Farm, Mini-Remix Brewtiful.

Lastly, I embellished the card with some gold sequins and a tulle bow and brown cord bow.

I really enjoyed coloring up this image and making a card with less embellishments but more dimension with all the layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love, love, love how this card came out! Did I tell you I loved it? Lol. Okay, but really it is so cute!

The paper I used was Pebbles: Garden Party. I purchased it at Tuesday Morning for $6.99. What a steal. It is a Medium Weight 12 x 12 paper pack.

I colored up my image with my Spectrum Noirs and I add shimmer to the wings with Wink of Stella and Stickles. 

I also used my jelly pens to give the center of the Sunflower and Bee outfit a tiny but of sparkle and dimension. 

Lastly, I added a gingham bow and some enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed my project!
