Paper Morsels

Paper Crafts and Sweet Morsels from life.

Pelotonia Thanks

These cards were made with a bicycle theme to thank those who have sponsored me as a Virtual Rider in the Pelotonia bike race.  The race began as a grassroots effort to raise money to support cancer research.  All the money raised goes directly to do so – no overhead.  Learn more about it (and make a donation if you like!) here.

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! 🙂   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 Lawn Fawn set is called – you guessed it – Love You Tons.  So cute!  The ink stamp stripes are “Belinda’s Borders”, also by Lawn Fawn.

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.
