Transportation Challenge Over at Pile It On!


Today's card is a square 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.
The card base is Kraft paper by Close to my Heart.

The layers are retired diagonal stripes, Glacier cardstock, Toffee cardstock, and Almond cardstock,  all from Close to my Heart.


The stack of suitcases digital stamp "Luggage" is from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.
Since the theme is Transportation and/or Vacation, the luggage was perfect.

The sentiment is a sneak peek of an up and coming Stamp of the Month from Close to my Heart.
You will see several cards from me over the next few weeks using this one.



I distressed the edges of the paper and cardstock with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz.

Transportation Challenge Over At Pile It On!


Lately things have been extremely busy, so I haven't had time to craft much. 
I finally had some free time and was able to put together a quick layout for a few of my sons photos.
I made a 12 x 12 single page layout, so showcase two photos.


The theme is transportation,  so the construction trucks are perfect.  

I used an older paper kit that included sticker, photo mats and the back ground paper from another scrapbooking company. 
The cardstock background is Saffron from Close to my Heart.

I distressed the edges of the paper and cardstock with a retired shade of brown from Close to my Heart called Nutmeg.


I also entered my layout into the following challenges:

I hope you enjoyed my layout, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Coffee Time Card

This week, to showcase this adorable digital image for the Beverage Challenge from Bugaboo Designs, over at Pile It On! Challenge Blog,  I made this simple, yet cute card. 




The digital image is Coffee Time-Perfect Blend.

I colored the image in with my Watercolor Pencils from Close to my Heart.
The card base is Peach cardstock from Close to my Heart. 
The layers are Peach cardstock, Carolina cardstock, and some patterned paper from my stash.

The inside sentiment is also part of the digital image set.




For a little added dimension, I placed a few pink dots from the retired Documents Dots set from Close to my Heart randomly.

I also tried to rough up a few of the edges as well. 
Since I didn't use ink this time to distress, like I usually do. 

I entered my card into a few challenges as well:

Black and White with a Pop of Color...

For Challenge #161 at Creatalicious Challenges, we had to create artwork that used the colors Black and White with one color.
I made my focus color Lagoon (teal).


I used the digital image Mermaid Treasure Map Girl from Hannah Lynn.



I colored in the digital image with my Close to my Heart Watercolor Pencils.

My sentiment is a retired stamp from Close to my Heart.
I used black cardstock as my base. 
With layers of Close to my Heart paper from the So Much Happy Paper Packet.


I added white enamel dots for some dimension. 

I hope you enjoyed my creation.
