DOODLE PANTRY AND CRAFT YOUR PASSION

Hello my Doodle Pantry friends! Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge over at Craft Your Passion. I’m sure you will want to go over and play in the challenge, but first I have a little inspiration for you. 

(A2; Digital stamp set: Doodle Pantry (Daffodil & Sweet Peas)

I don’t know about you but this southern girl is VERY tired of snow and ice. I am anxiously waiting for the daffodils to start blooming! I copied and pasted several line art daffodils from the Daffodil & Sweet Peas set. I used the yellow solid paper for their background, printed and colored them with my Copic markers. I used a SB die to cut the circle and the square. The patterned paper is also from this set. For the top edge, I used a SB border die, ran it thorough my machine and paper pierced the design.

Now it is  your turn! Get over to Craft Your Passion and show us what you create! 

I  hope you enjoyed my card and don’t forget to join our challenge! Here is your link:

FANCIFUL FRIDAY

Hello to all of my Great Impressions friends! It is the fourth Friday in March and time for my Great Impressions inspiration from the Great Impressions store!


If you are a follower of mine, you may remember we did special fold cards last month at GI. I made a swing card and loved it so much I decided to make another one for Easter. I used some beautiful DCWV card stock to make the card. I then stamped that cute little Easter Dog and colored him with Copic markers. I attached him to the front with foam tape. Inside, I stamped the sentiment on the back of the circle. I love how this paper worked for this card! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

GREAT IMPRESSIONS AND C.R.A.F.T

Hello to all of my Great Impressions friends! This week GI is sponsoring the challenge at C.R.A.F.T Challenge. The theme is “Inspired by a Movie”. Here is my card; can you guess my movie?

(A2: Stamps: Great Impressions Stamps (G360Geisha  and  A145 - Never Give Up)

Did you guess it? It was first a book and then a movie…. The main character is Chiyo/Sayuri. Did you figure it out? YES! Memoirs of a Geisha!!! I read the book years ago and when the movie came out I fell in love with it too. The book takes place before, during and after WWII and is an historical novel. It is such a beautiful story of perseverance!

As a young child Chiyo and her sister are sold to a geisha boarding house. Chiyo meets The Chairman and determines to become a geisha hoping to someday see him again. She chose Sayuri as her geisha name, and she did meet The Chairman again, and their story is unforgettable.

I have some gorgeous card stock from DCWV called The Far East. I love the colors and texture of this card stock. After finding the image of the tree on a piece of the CS I decided to use it to look like my geisha is walking in a garden. After stamping the image several times on different paper, I paper pieced the geisha and fussy cut her. I kept her colors light so she could stand out from the dark background and attached her with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment and die cut it. I die cut another larger oval and dotted it with Liquid Pearls and then attached the sentiment inside the dots using foam tape. I added three more dots of LP at the top left. I hope you like my card, and if you have not read the book or seen the movie, I’m sure you will love it!

Thanks for stopping by!


Now it is time for you to join in the fun at C.R.A.F.T Challenge! What movie will inspire you? I can’t wait to see!
