Five Minute Friday: Umbrella Thinking of You

Hello and happy Good Friday, if you’re celebrating!  Just a super quick card today using the umbrella from Puddle Jumper Felties (appropriate with all the rain we’ve been getting here!), some paper from This & That and Togetherness pads.  I used the Tulip Borderabilities to create the scalloped edge and then stamped the Very Square Sentiments greeting in Memento Black.  

Just a reminder that ALL $20-$25 Unity kits are on sale for $15 and $11 kits are only $6, including Suzi Blu stamps.  Also, in honor of Lori being OCL’s Artist of the Month, all non-new release Our Craft Lounge sets are also on sale, some as low as $8.

Five Minute Friday: Tearrific!

Hi there!  Happy Friday!  Did you see that the new Echo Park Paper 6x6 pads arrived, as well as their new Summer Days line?  So excited!! 

For today’s card I used the new OCL set, Tea Time and paper pieced the teapot (and crumpled) using Cosmo Cricket Pixielicious paper.  I stamped the teapot and greeting in Palette Noir and then used my Nesties, some Yellow and White Liquid Pearls and added a piece of  Natural Twine String to emulate a teabag string going from the pot to the greeting.

Five Minute Friday: Our House to Yours

Hi there!  I love that it is Friday!  The Copic Shading book from Marianne came back in this week and has been flying!  I also added individual markers and refills of the 12 new colors, in case you don’t want to add the set of 12 at this point.  And I’ve got a few special deliveries coming this week, so make sure to check back!

For today’s card I used a scrap from Seaside paper and stamped one of the houses from Mi Casa in Palette Burnt Umber and the greeting in Palette Landscape.  I colored it with Copics and then added a little bit of olive lace.  I added some Glossy Accents to the windows and used my Rectangle Nesties for the frame.

That’s it!  A CAS Friday card for you!  Thanks so much for popping in today.  I hope you have a great weekend!

Be Mine Carte Postal

Hi there!  I’m still enjoying playing with my Be Mine collection from Echo Park and I came up with this card using some of the stickers on the embellishment sheet in the kit.  Did you hear that they’re releasing 6x6 pads in addition to the 12x12 kits?  And yes, of course I will have them (next week in fact!)

I used the stickers of the postcard and some trim for the bottom and then added a bow of faux black suede ribbon as the finishing touch. 

I got the new Copic Shading book in yesterday so grab it while it’s here.  The last shipment sold out in 6 hours! 

I’ll be back on Friday with a Five Minute Friday card for you!  Thanks for stopping in!

Five Minute Friday: MCS - Thinking of You

Hello!  Who’s getting rain/snow/ick today?  *raises hand*  I am! I am!  And it’s not an April Fools joke!  Crazy!!!

I’d like to see some of these pretty blooms instead!  I stamped with Ashley’s Blooms in Palette inks and then colored with Copics and Spica pens.  I stamped the greeting from Chelsea Sentiments and then added a handmade, white crochet flower and knotted a scrap of pink glimmer ribbon in the center of it.

That’s it!  I hope you have a great Spring weekend!  Thanks for stopping by today!
