Need a Hug? : Poppy Sketch #9

Hi everyone!!  I am finally getting things unpacked and organized in my scrapbook room, but I *think* there may be a stray box or two in the garage with some of my crafting supplies in them.  Hopefully I can get most of everything unpacked in the next few days so that I can get back to crafting when I want to. ;)

I was able to pull together this card for Poppy Sketch #9 that is up today......

 The sponsor for this sketch/challenge is Jane's Doodles.  I love this fun little stamp set that I got to work is called Nuts about You.  The colors for this challenge are Violet, Seashell Pink, and Gold.  The woodgrain is stamped in the Violet color (purple shades don't photograph well for me).  I added the cute little heart image to the otter by cutting around the arm with a blade and then gluing the heart in the slit.  Here is a closer look at my card.....

For the Gold, I stamped the leaves with embossing ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  I finished off the card with a bit of Gold Shimmer bakers twine from The Twinery.

I just love this sketch!!  Hop on over and join us at Poppy Sketches for this great challenge and then don't forget to check out the other FABULOUS cards by the other design team members.

Have a great day!!

Faith Hope Love : Poppy Sketch #8

Hello and welcome back for peek of my card for the new Poppy Sketch that is up today.  The sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear's Stamps and I got to use the Crocus and Butterfly image by Delicious Doodles on my card today.

I printed and colored in the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  The pop of color for this sketch is the Summer Green, Sunshine, and Noir.  I added some SRM Stickers in the frame for a sentiment.  Take a closer look.....

So, our move is well under way and I am busily packing and moving my craft supplies.  Luckily for you, I do have a few cards to share while my stuff is making it's way to our new place.

This card is done with the June Key Ingredients kit and Stamp of the Month and matching die set from Taylored Expressions.

The stamp set is called Bright Boutique and I used the star from this stamp set along the bottom.  The phone and hello dies are in the Hi Hey Hello stamp set that coordinates with the Bright Boutique stamp set perfectly.  The papers in this Key Ingredients kit are the Simple Stories DIY Boutique 6x6 paper pad.

I also used the Medium Scallop Border die from Taylored Expressions along the top.  Here is a closer look.....

Along the edges of the focal point, I used my embroidery floss and a needle to do a blanket stitch.  I used some white hemp twine to finish off my card.  I love the fun bold look of this card.

Hurry over to get the Key Ingredients and Stamp of the Month sets before the end of the month....because they are only here for the month of June.  If you wanted, you could get them both in the Deluxe Subscription HERE for a discounted price.

Have a great weekend!!

Happy Summer : Poppy Sketch #7

Hey everyone!!  I don't know about you, but I am happy to have summer here, finally.  I am not a fan of when it gets really hot, but I love to be able to do lots of summer activities, like hiking, fishing, camping, picnics, wearing sandals, and going to the beach....just like on this card I made with the newest Poppy Sketches challenge that starts today.

I used my Cricut to cut out the flip-flops and my Cuttlebug to add the Swiss Dots and D'vine Swirls embossing.  The sentiment and stitching are SRM Stickers.  I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, too.  Here is a closer look at my card.

The touch of glitter on the flip-flops is Stickles glitter glue and I also added a bit of Solid Honeydew bakers twine from The Twinery under the sentiment.

Did you know that there is a fun twist with every sketch challenge over on the Poppy Sketches blog?  Can you tell what the twist is by looking at my card?  Here is the challenge photo to help you see it:
