100 Day Destash-Day 31-Patterned Paper AGAIN!

Let’s face it we all have oodles of it so why not use it. Today I would like to carry on from the other days blog featuring the Concord & 9th All For You die set.

This die set covers just about every occasion I can think of so I am going to show you a few more I made today highlighting he smaller dies.

This card features the small thank die. It was created by cutting 4 words out and gluing them together. I cut the big YOU die out of 4 pieces of white (3 scraps) I glued the acetate to the first layer and then the remaining layers were glued.

I added the sequins into the letters and then glued on the patterned paper. This was put on a card base. The word thank, a heart and some sequins were popped on top. Card 1 done! The next 2 cards were done in the same fashion just changing out the word die and patterned paper and a few pieces of vellum. I hope you enjoy.


100 Day Destash Challenge-Day 14-Forgotten Stamps & Sequins

One thing I have realized during this personal challenge is I do not like sequins 🙄. I think it’s the hole in the middle…it just seems like an unfinished embellishment. If you make shaker boxes they are great but I am not a shaker maker. Except for today.

Once again I was inspired by the awesome Mary Gunn and Craft Roulette Challenge. Her challenge takes place every Friday evening at 6:30pm CST on FaceBook and YouTube. Four parameters are set and away we go. Tonight’s wheel choices were:

  • 5 x 7 card base (my least favorite)
  • Colors chosen were Blue + 2 (and neutrals)
  • The element was balloon
  • Pencils had to be used somehow someway

Here’s my card I encourage you to come and join the group and join in Mary Gunn’s Funn!!!


100 Day Destash-Day 7 Patterned Paper, Sequins & Die Cuts

So 100 days…..yeah. It’s a goal that I will complete. Does that mean I have to do 100 days consecutively? No, I can go at my own pace as this is my goal no one else’s.

It’s been a bit crazy lately transitioning my parents to a new apartment so the cards I have been doing have been pretty simple cards. Watching some of my favorite card makers always inspires me and today it was the awesome Jennifer McGuire.

I have used some ancient patterned paper, some acetate from packaging and a great heart die from another favorite, Gina K Designs. Some sequins were thrown in for bling. I love using scrap paper for dimension it is so much cheaper than foam tape. I used this behind the sentiment and the main card base. Thanks for stopping by!!
