Thanks, Crop Stop!


It is so much fun to have new crafting supplies!  This is the second card made from the Crop Stop prize package.  The craft panel was embossed with a Couture Creations folder called Ooh La La.  It includes flowers, branches, birds, leaves, and hearts, so there are many possible applications.  The My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers were watercolored to coordinate with the sweet ribbon and with the Petaloo butterflies so thoughtfully included in the Crop Stop prize package.

Thank you, Crop Stop, and thanks to everyone who stopped by for a look.
Blessings,
Christine

God Bless America



I am working on a set of cards to give a military mom whose son left for training a couple weeks ago.  This one includes papers from the Cottage Market and a sentiment from Verve's American Hero.  The sketch is from Sunday Stamps, and there are still a few days to play along using this versatile design.

Praying God will bless America,
Christine

I Wait for the Lord




This sweet scripture comes from Verve's New Mercies and is accented by a bloom from Beautiful Things.  The soft floral papers are a digital download from Far, Far Hill.  Some stitched rectangle dies and a sweep of Wink of Stella are the only embellishments, making this super easy to mail.

Gatefold Thank You Card


My (crafting) goal for this weekend is to create some thank you cards in response to the wonderful Valentine's Day gifts I received.  I had fun making this one with Verve's Kindness Matters stamps and dies.  I took the color scheme from the gorgeous inspiration photo shown here and followed a video tutorial from Jennifer McGuire for the gate fold technique.  It was lots of fun to make.

Guest Designing for Crop Stop

What a blessing to receive a prize package from Crop Stop at the beginning of the New Year!  This week and next week, I will share projects on the Crop Stop Blog showcasing wonderful supplies enclosed in the prize package.

I chose papers from my stash in muted greens and blues to compliment the gorgeous Petaloo butterfly and ribbon from Crop Stop.  The background stamp used on the kraft panel is from Prima and was also enclosed in the prize package.  I can see lots of future applications for that image!

With much gratitude for some new Crop Stop goodies,
Christine
