Wow, such a good weekend! It was nice getting so many cards made. The ones I will be sharing today were made for The Paper Girls and the Raisin Boat Challenges. The first 2 were created specifically for The Paper Girls Challenge 24: Wood Elements. I recently bought some Studio Calico wood embellishments for no good reason other than they were REALLY cute and lately I’ve been pretty addicted to typewriters. (Un)Luckily, a lot of companies are coming out with some amazing typewriter stamps, embellishments and die cuts.
I used the great little Studio Calico typewriter & some of the new Basic Grey Fiction collection that I told myself I had to use after I was really naughty at JoAnns.
The Daydream sentiment is from that same pack of Studio Calico goodness and the card is based on one I saw in the new Paper Crafts challenges magazine. I was trying to use up some scraps I had and this was a really good project for that. I actually made another card with the sentiment “Dream Away” using 2 words from that same package.
The third card was made for the Raisin Boat Challenge #7: “Love is in the Air”. I knew I wanted to float something from the clouds and when I saw that there were little hearts in the new Close To My Heart wooden embellishment package I bought, I knew they would be perfect for both. The sentiment is from the embellishments for the Basic Grey Fact & Fiction line.
I drew a simple little border around it and tied it all up with a bow. Now I can take these cards and use them to send out the swap ATCs and Rolo I made!
