It's all about the Hunt!

Hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day Weekend, my family made sure I did!  Wanted to share this get-well card I made.  Just a simple card, but I love the colors!  Their warmth makes me think of summer vacation (or maybe I am in need of a little break)?  Cardmaking for me is sometimes like a scavenger hunt...I enjoy looking for different supplies that coordinate and come together well...kind of like creating my own kits, I guess.  The papers are My Mind's Eye Stella Rose and the stamp, ribbon and cardstock cut out are from Michaels clearance bin.  The stick pin is from yours truly :)

Did you get in any crafting over the weekend?

Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Love ~ Still Craftin' with My Bug

Hello friends!  I know many of my scrappy friends have traded in their Cricuts for an upgraded cutting machine like the Silhouette or Cameo.  I'm excited about upgrading myself, but until then, I'm still scrapbooking and card making with my Bug!    Today, I wanted to share a couple of "baby" cards I made.  So simple, but so cute!

 All I needed was the cardstock, twine, a stamp and a few embellies.  I think the fun patterns of the K&Company Small Wonders Girl and Close to My Heart "Ivy Lane" papers make the onesies pop against the white base.

It's fun to mix and match papers!  Here I used DCWV Nana's Kids Glitter Stack and Sweet Stack.

 For the girl onesies, I added a few embellies to pretty them up.  The stamp is an old one from Michaels.
Are you still scrapping with your Bug?

Bee-Cause You are So Sweet!

Today's bee-inspired card wraps up my Mother's Day Series this week!  If you love bees and vintage, I hope you've *caught* some *sweet* inspiration this week.  I created another digi-stamp for this card's sentiment, have you tried yours yet?

I added a kraft tag to the layers to switch things up a little bit.  My favorite cards always have texture and dimension :)  What about you, have you finished your cards yet?

Bee Joyous! Mother's Day Card Series

Happy Thursday!  Just popping over for my Queen Bee Mother's Day Card Series?  Check out the first post here.  Do you have a favorite shape for cards?  I used to have a thing about square-shaped cards...yes, even with the additional postage charge :)  For today's card, I put together some of the techniques from cards you saw earlier in the week.

The layering, chunky flowers, wood sentiment and hexagon you never saw such a pretty hexagon!  It has been fun seeing how many ways I can use these MME papers; when I sit down to design cards for Design Designs by Nancy, I try to stick to a similar color pallette for each batch.  Do you think these colors work well together?
What are your favorite color combos?
