Splitcoast Creative Crew

Monday, Monday… back so soon I see! How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was pretty good. I didn’t get all of my projects done but I did get most of them. The weather was very nice here yesterday and I can sense the extra minutes of daylight we are getting each day on way back to glorious spring!

Today I’m posting two cards that I made for the Creative Crew over on Splitcoast. They kindly asked me if I would be a part of the crew for the next four months and I happily agreed. You can visit the challenge gallery here and upload your own cards. They also have a scrapbook challenge which I didn’t do this month but I will give a go next month!

My first card is all about Designer Series Paper. The challenge is to use a favorite designer series paper and convince you to love it too. The base of the card is Not Quite Navy Card Stock and the background is a simple piece of Very Vanilla. The vest is made from Parker’s Patterns Designer Series Paper. It is just a rectangle that I cut a “v” in and used the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch to make the arm holes. The bowtie is from the Dapper Dad Stamp Set and is stamped in Sahara Sand and the greeting is form the the Apothecary Art Stamp Set and is stamped in Not Quite Navy. What vest would be complete without some Naturals Designer Buttons?! It’s a really simple card and would also make a great Father’s Day card. I really do love the DSP, it’s got some nice masculine patterns and bold colors in it too!


The second card is all about SIP… stamps, ink and paper and that’s all I used on it. The base of the card is Rose Red Card Stock. Across the lower half is a piece of Very Vanilla that I stamped with the chevron stamps from the Oh, Hello Stamp Set in Rose Red and Pretty in Pink. The main panels also has images stamped from the Oh, Hello Stamp Set. The flowers are stamped in Rose Red and Pretty in Pink and the greeting in Rose Red. I backed it wait a piece of Pretty in Pink before adhering it to the card with SNAIL. Super simple, no Big Shot, no Punches just SIP!


There is also a third card that I made but I think you can take a look at that one when you go and check out the gallery! I hope that you enjoyed my first two cards for the Splitcoast Creative Crew. Thank you so much for stopping by and don’t forget to enter your card in this weeks “Love is in the Air” challenge from Ann over at the Paper Players! Have a very nice day!
