Something New

Did any of you get some new crafting goodies to play with over Christmas?  Did you pick up some new papers or stamps at that fabulous boxing day sale?!  Well, Crafty Creations Challenges wants to make sure you use all those shiny new things!

The challenge this week is SOMETHING NEW!  Use a NEW tool, stamp, embellishment, paper, or even a new (to you) technique!

 The SPONSOR this week is      SEW MANY CARDS

I received some new Cricut cartridges for Christmas! Yay!  I’ve used  frame 2 from my Fancy Frames cartridge cut at  3 1/2″ .  I cut it from a darker shade of sage green and then cut the Frame 2 layer in a paler sage.   The image is printed and colored in copics on cream cardstock.

I punched 3 small hearts from the pale sage to add around the frame edge and then added two little heart buttons tied with twine for a sweet finishing embellishment.

The colors for this card was inspired by The Colour Create challenge: RED CREAM SAGE !

I’ve used a heart image and heart buttons, for the  SweetStamps Blog challenge.

Used my new stash for Ladybug Crafts Inc Challenge!

    Hi Deena,

    I have been having significant computer issues. I had an IT guy on my computer all day. Some things are cleared up – some are not. Anyway, on top of that Spencer hurt his finger and has to go see a pediatric, orthopedic hand specialist for a surgical consult tomorrow. Yadda, yadda!

    Anyway, if I am scarce lately, it’s because of all that and work etc. I hope to get back in gear soon! Don’t I always!

    Bottom Line, I’m out here and I can’t always type! AND your card is quite beautiful. Love the frame!
