Wishing You Happiness

Happy Saturday!! And happy February 1st!! How can it be February already?? At least it means we are that much closer to spring :) I have a couple of cards to share with you today. I have made more cards this week than I have in like two months!! The stencil class really motivated me to find time to craft. I'm sure it won't last, but it's been fun :)


The base of this card is a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight die cut in heavyweight cream cardstock from The Paper Studio. The next layer is a Spellbinders Labels Eight die. The rest of the paper is from Prima's Fairy Rhymes paper stack.


The Labels 8 was cut twice and the top layer was cut in half to make the pocket for the tag. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink. The border along the edge is a Die-Versions Lacey Dots die. The image was fussy cut from the paper.


The tag is a TH Sizzix Tiny Tabs & Tags die. It was cut once with the Prima Paper and then in vellum. The circles are Spellbinders Beaded Cricles and Standard Circles Small dies. The stamps are from My Craft Spot's Stamping All Around Spring stamp set. The burlap ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.


The ribbon is from TH's Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon. The tag is a Spellbinders Charmed I'm Sure die. Wishing You Happiness is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 1 stamp set. The button is a Spellbinders Whimsey die.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Twine or String
  2. My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #124 - Polka Dots
  3. Little Scrap Pieces - Anything Goes
I also have one last stencil project to share with you today :)


For this card, a Crafter's Workshop Mini Cherry Blossoms stencil was inked with Versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The card was then inked with TH Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. It was then flicked with water. The sentiment is from JustRite Stamps Grand Sentiments stamp set. Strips of tissue paper and white thread were added behind.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and for checking out all of my stencil projects this week!! Have a great weekend :)

My sweetest friend, both of your cards are gorgeous! I love your versatility, Lisa. The first one is pure elegance... I never know what to do with the sweet images like that in papers because my brain freezes and I can't figure out a nice enough design. :o) You, naturally, created such a gorgeous pocket card for her! The die trim is lovely, as is your tag. :o) The base is one of my favorites from you, as I'm sure you know well by now! The second card is so beautifully vibrant! You ink like no other and I adore your color choices. The sentiment is truly lovely, both in word and style. Wonderful projects, my talented friend! I hope you have a happy Sunday! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
