A Quick Card

I needed a quick card for graduation.  I have nothing that says graduation so I thought I would make a music themed card, especially since Hannah is very musical.  I die cut the piano key border using the Piano Keys Edger by Frantic Stamper and the Elizabeth Craft Notes along with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I lined the card with a pale lavender piece of card stock and the card was complete.  I love it when cards come together quickly.  Especially when I needed this one so soon.  

Well, that's it for today.....I hope this post finds everyone well.

A Play Day

Yesterday I had every intention to clean my craft room.  Well, I found a scrap of paper that was in my scrap/snippet folder and I had a die I hadn't used yet (actually two dies), well I think you know where this is going......  My sister will be getting this card....cause I'm thinking of her. 

Anyway, long story short, I saw a card on Franticstamper blog and I loved it.  So I went to her store and purchased two dies.  The floral one and the floral border.  Well, I was cleaning my craft room, and I had to stop to make a card.  You know you see something, it wakes you up and you have to play with paper.  This card is almost exactly as I saw it on Fran's site.  It was made by Karen Oliver a talented paper artist who lives in New Zealand.  Usually the cards I make from an inspiration, don't turn out looking anything like the inspiration card.  This one sure did.  So thank you Karen for inspiring me to make this can you come over and help me clean my craft room?  

I used paper I had left from other makes.  I didn't have any yellow or green pieces, so I used snippets of white, die cut the die and used it as a stencil.  Then I colored the stencil using Sharpie pens and die cut the colored pieces to get what you see.    The two dies are from Frantic Stamper Precision Cutting Dies Flower Border and Edger FRA-Die-10782 and Frantic Stamper Precision Die Spring Swag Builder FRA-Die-10780.  The Sentiment die is Creative Expressions Mini Die Thinking of You CEDSS006.  I had to color that too for this I used Distress Ink and colored a piece of white paper and then die cut it.  

Well, guess what, my craft room still isn't clean!  So I guess I should get to it and do it....right?  

I'm going to share this make on Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  

Until next time....thanks for stopping by.  I hope you visit Karen's blog page and if you need dies... I love Frantic Stamper.  

Off I go, Hugs from my world to yours,
