Paper Morsels

Paper Crafts and Sweet Morsels from life.

Valentines

Yes, yes, I know it is March…but I couldn’t post the Valentines when I made them because I didn’t want anyone to see them before they were delivered and then, well, you know…life! ūüôā ¬† The first three were for my nieces, the last one for my DH.

This Lawn Fawn set is called Bugs and Kisses – that’s also what the sentiment says inside! ¬†The designer paper is by Doodlebug, Inc. – called Love Bug. ¬†The glitter paper on all the cards is by DCWV and the silver by Recollections.

This digi image is called Little Puppy Love by Limited Runs Digital Stamps. ¬†The inside sentiment says Sending Warm Fuzzies by Hero Arts “Everyday Sayings” stamps. ¬† How perfect right?!…the envelopes on the paper and the digi and the fuzzy dog!

I have only made a few shaker cards before, this one also uses Lawn Fawn‘s Bugs and Kisses. ¬†The dies are My Favorite Things Die-Namics By the Letters. ¬†The “you” is from Winnie and Walter “The Big, The Bold and You” stamp set. ¬†I used a transparency and foam tape to add the heart sequins in, after I shaded the back layer with Tim Holtz’ Distress Inks.

Cookies n’ Milk

Yesterday was my foray into another Lawn Fawn set – this time: my new Cookies and Milk set! ¬†YUM! ¬†I made 7 cards, here are a few of the variations. ¬†I have to admit, the last one is my favorite, but I just didn’t have much of that paper! ¬†My striped paper was some older stock I had on hand from a summer DCWV stack. ¬† I took the sentiment stamp the set came with and curved it on my acrylic block so that it mimicked the curve of the frame.

Now who wants cookies??!

Go..See..Do!

I love to travel…that’s why these papers caught my eye!

¬†This theme reminds me of the hustle and bustle of a big city like NYC…cars, buses, subway, cabs…

you name it!  The grungy feel matches the big city vibe as well!

I think this is a great masculine card to send to a fella who is about to go on some travel adventures!
