365 Days of Love -May

 photo maylove_zps3f7d2995.jpg

It has been a very full and kind of crazy month last month. With the art competition taking up the majority of my free time and teaching craft classes, as well as life in general.

I honestly thought I would be much further behind on this project however cleaning out my craft drawers I came accross a checkbook filled with ‘love cheques’ of various types and had a great idea what better way to embrace sharing love than by enabling whoever finds these little packages to share them with someone they care about.

So I cut out some pattern papers to wrap around the cheques and created cards with the leftover offcuts.

The cards say ‘Happiness comes through doors you didn’t even know you left open’

Inside each card is some version of this

Dear Amazing You,

It is so easy to take those we love and care about for granted. Please use this ‘love cheque’ to show someone you love that you care about them.

Never forget to take the opportunity to tell those closest to you how much you care.

Love a Friend

Dr Who + Washi Tape = Tardis Card

Every Dr Who fan knows as a crafter there is very little out there in the way of ready to use Dr Who craft stuff.

Soooooooooooooooooooooo imagine the excitement when Clearsnap posted a blog in conjunction with Viva Las Vegas Stamps and gasp, excitement, woo hoo

there was a TARDIS STAMP!!!!

ok so a blue police box aherm. So we had to have it, My Sister, My friend and talented Scrapper Toni and I all got the Unmounted one so that we could all get it with post for $10.50 each. If we had got it with the cling or block mounted it would have shot the postage up.

I was so excited to get my stamp, also having found out the same day I missed my sisters Fiance’s birthday.

I have also been playing a lot with washi tape.

So of course I sat down and this card was born

The Washi Tape is from Sawyers Place
I also used a dark purple stickles glitter glue
Some Silver Embossing Powder
A fiskers Happy Birthday Stamp

and Distress inks in various blue shades from memory: Stormy Sky, broken china, salty ocean and blue jeans.

As well as a white gel pen.

Other than the Happy Birthday turning out a bit smudged looking I am quite chuffed at how my first use of this stamp turned out.

A Washi Tape Card

This card was done super quick (and I mean like in about 20mins). It was for my Nieces birthday even though it turned out far more Masculine than I intended for it to.

I have been playing with decorated masking tapes and washi tape cards lately using my score board to get the lines needed to cover over. Though you can tell I was in a hurry as one of my lines is still wonky even with a guide.

I used my envelope guide and did my lines 3/4″ appart 3 on each corner then added the washi tape over the lines. Pretty simple but effective and something I will try again the next time I need a masculine card.

Kaiser Cards (from Chapter one and Sweet Nothings Pads)

I recently challenged myself to use pretty much only the paper pads and what was in them to create these two cards. Although I couldn’t resist adding the red roses to the Chapter one card for a little pop of colour.

I got the Chapter one Paper Pad when spotlight had them on sale because It is not colours that I would normally use and I knew it would challenge me. I cut the 2nd scalloped strip from a piece of pp in the stack (you can tell which is the hand cut one), This is for a friends birthday.

This card is completely from Kaisers Sweet Nothings paper pad (I love that pad so much a friend sent me an extra one)

It was made as a thank you card for a friend.

 

It was really hard to not at least ink the edges of things and to add a little of this or that but overall I am really pleased with the results of these cards.
