Valentine’s card

This card is based on a sketch by Card Patterns on the Sketches in Thyme blog for their challenge this week. I combined it with challenge 85 on Scrap Whispers, which is to create a layout or card using red and black, include a heart and add glitter. For this card, I used Webster’s Pages’ Hollywood Vogue and Garden Gala Papers as well as their trim. The scrolls are from Maya Road, but I cut them to the shape and size I wanted, then added stickles for the glitter. The brads are by Kaiser. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the scallop towards the bottom of the card and distress ink on all the paper edges. The hearts were hand cut.

Best Buddies Layout

For this lo, I used MME’s Lost and Found Collection. This time, I used the Portobello Road range. The base paper is Cowboy from the “Boy” set, and I also used Flannel from the “Buddies” set. I used a couple small pieces off of the “Boy” Glittered Diecut paper to accent as well. The trim, brads, tag and dimensional stickers are all MME. I used a touch of Tattered Angels glimmer glaze, Shimmerz spritz and Color Box ink. Handstitched w/white thread for contrast. I used the sketch by Anam Stubbington provided on MME’s blog for their challenge #19. To take a look or enter, CLICK HERE.

Review – My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found Collection

From their Wild Asparagus range to Tres Jolie to Lost and Found, one thing I’ve always loved about My Mind’s Eye is the heavy weight and texture of their cardstock. For this layout I used the Moments papers from the Union Square range. A great feature to this line is that they’ve already included glittered elements on the papers that really make the gorgeous details pop! I didn’t have any lettering that were the color I wanted, so I used white alphas by Pink Paislee, inked them w/distress ink and embossed them which created a really cool marbled affect.

MME also offers many items that coordinate with their products. There are trims, tags, buttons, brads, dimensional stickers, stamp sets and chipboard mini-albums that go with each range in this line. You can see more of their fantastic designs HERE.
