Hello Little Twins

Hello friends. I am back from a well needed and well deserved vacation. So jumping right into my favorite thing to do, (besides spending time with my family of course) card making! 

I had a friend contact me and asked me to make a card for her. She wasn't sure what she wanted so I created a Pinterest board for her and sent it to her.  So convenient, so easy, and full of great ideas. I told her I would pick out cards that I knew I had the supplies for and make as close as to what was in the board.  I want to give thanks for the inspiration to the original pinterest image (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/556264991448263389/) but there was no link or watermark to where I can find the creator of the adorable card. So I will leave the link here and post the image and maybe someone will know where it came from.

***Update, I found the Creator!! The design for this card came from http://paperandbeadsdesign.blogspot.com.au/ Her name is Joeann Issac and I am a new fan of her work! Many Many Thanks Joeann!***

Hope you enjoyed my post today and feel inspired to create!!



Now, for the tiny envelopes. I wanted to show you how I made them. So quick and simple.


Cut a 2 3/4 by 3 1/2 piece out of your favorite cardstock design. Then place it on your scoring board and follow the dimensions below. 


Then follow the next scoring dimensions by turning it for the edges. Once you're done scoring you want to measure the flaps to cut out on an angle. See the image below.

 

When you're all done with the cutting and scoring it should look like this, and then its time to round the corners.


I was able to round the corners using the Fiskars Corner Punch. For the smaller corners I am able to see where I want to make the round edge. Once you're all done with the corners all you have to do next is close up the flaps and glue them or use tape runner whichever you prefer and your all done and ready to embellish it!




Hope this helped out and if you have any questions please leave a comment below and I will be glad to answer them!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge


Hello there, hump day is just about over!!! I am here today with a new Digi Stamp Card From
 Mommy Lhey as I promised. I am really starting to get a hang of these digi stamps. And how can you not fall in love with her images, they are simply adorable!

I am combining this weeks card with one of my favorite Simon Monday Challenges. The inspiration came from last weeks Wednesday Challenge. Their theme was Spots and Dots. Now keeping in mind of mid-summer and time of hot temperatures, long days and longing for more time to enjoy a sweet treat!  I came up with this idea for a card that would be good for any occasion.

I had a great time making this card. Easy, quick and simple! Hope you enjoy it and get inspired!



 I used the mini distress inks on watercolor paper and printed out the images on vellum paper. Before I adhered the images with Multi Medium Matte (which if you were wondering dries clear) I used a soft paint brush and splattered on dots. All the supplies I used are listed down below.
