Scatter Sunshine with Crystal

Happy Thursday Quick Quote fans! Crystal here today showcasing  my very first Quick Quote design team project. I am super thrilled to join this talented group of ladies. I hope to bring some inspiration to you this next year!

With cloudy winter days I decided to make a card to bring encouragement to a friend.

First I cropped my cardstock to 5"x 4.25", then I ran that through my die cutter using a stitched edge die. Next I proceed to stamp cute little dots all around the edges of the card using Rusty Nail Powderpuff Chalking ink and Brandy Wine Powderpuff Chalking ink.

Moving on the sentiment I used Color Vellum in Scatter Sunshine, that I ran through my die cut machine with the same stitched edging. The yellow base paper is from the Celebrate collection, cut to custom size. 

Next, using the other side of the yellow Celebrate 12 x 12 sheet is a beautiful stripped pattern. I made paper bow with this then topped it off with a bit of ivory jute twine.

Quick Quotes Supplies Used:

Rusty Nail Powderpuff Chalking ink 
Brandy Wine Powderpuff Chalking ink
Color Vellum in Scatter Sunshine
Quick Quote Celebrate 12x12 Paper

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

hello love

Happy Wednesday! Its's hump day. Almost to the weekend and I've spend a bit of my afternoon playing with a new stamp set I purchased from PTI. Delightful Dahlias and the additions to it.

I created this card with Lawnscaping challenge #98 "Create a background with stamp".
The "love" stamp is from PaperSmooches "simply said".... Seems to me that every time I call one of my friends I call her "love".

The background is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I think I could get away with using this for a non traditional valentines day.

This card is getting entered to the following:
