No Fear - Napkin Fold Anniversary Card

Hello, I'm back with a fun new challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges !   2 Timothy 1:7 "For God has not given us a spirit of fe ar, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."   So the challenge is to try something that you might have been afraid to try before now (ie. a new technique, a new color combo, a new style --CAS if you are a layered stamper, or reversed)     I've gotta say that creatively, I am pretty fearless.  I actually love a challenge... and can't wait to try something new, so fear for me doesn't belong in the same sentence as crafting.  The only thing that holds me back at time is not having specific supplies.  But given this week's challenge I decided to make something I'd seen on SCS and that's a Napkin Fold Card which is perfect for my mom & dad's 44th Anniversary this weekend!   Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad, ♥ U! I didn't make a tutorial because that's already been d

Whimsy & Stars Studio

I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #130 along with this cute girl from Whimsy & Stars Studio.  She was fun to color up with my Copics, although I went a li’l crazy with my blender pen sooo… just don’t look too closely *Ü*  I added stickles to the crown tips (gems) and tiny adhesive pearls for her bracelet.  Here’s a close-up: CARD RECIPE:   Stamps: Balloon Girl digi by Whimsy & Stars Studio Paper: July’s Key Ingredients kit by Taylored Expressions Dies: Spellbinders Sketch: Sweet Sunday Sketch #130 Size: 5.5” square

I Found a New Love - {{The Paper Shelter}}

… a crafting one that is!!  *Ü*   Hello again!  I don't normally post twice in the same day but I just HAD to get this posted so I could enter it for a challenge.  I came across a new digi stamp company yesterday and just had to purchase a few stamps!  If you are a digi-lover like myself, I’m sure you will fall in love with the fabulous digis at The Paper Shelter : I not only fell in love with their cuteness ( some of them remind me of Holly Hobby, Strawberry Shortcake, Sarah Kay, and the like ) but I also love their prices as well!!  *Ü*  Do I sound like an info-mercial?  Heehee, no I’m not getting paid to say these things… I just love em and HAD to share with you!! For this card, I colored up Quiet Moment with copics, adding a li’l sponging to the grass and sky.  The paper is from this month’s Key Ingredients kit from TE.  And guess what??  They have a CHALLENGE BLOG as well!!  This week’s theme is anything goes!  You don’t have to use their digis, but if you DO and yours w
