MFW Card Creation Week; Gingham challenge

Today's card is for Moxie Fab World Card Creation Week: Gingham challenge.  Gingham pattern is always associated with baby for me. So I made a welcome baby card.

PTI large gingham pattern was stamped on light blue card stock and die cut to create the waves. Small gingham pattern was stamped in blue and red on white card stock for little sailboat's sail.  I don't have any sailboat stamp or die.  I hand drew and cut out the parts of the sailboat and assembled it.

I have been really enjoying the Card Creation vol 10 magazine so far.  There are so many creative ideas to love and the perfect execution to admire.  This is my favorite issue so far.  If you have not got a copy yet, go and get one, you won't be disappointed.

It also entered into Simon Says Stamp challenge: clean and simple.

Edit to add;  Jenny reminded me that this card also fits Less is More Challenge; week 68: Baby or child.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Make it Monday #66: Felt flower from border dies

A quick card for this week's Make it Monday

I used the scallop border die.  I like the rolled flower loose and airy. It is hard to to that with the border die.  I had to trim the inside edge to achieve the effect.  I hand cut the frame.  Can't wait to get the new released pretty peony die.

CAS-ual Fridays 52: Fathered Friends

I can't believe it has been more than two weeks since my last post.  It was really busy at work last couple weeks. I am also exhausted from my new workout routine (time to get ready for summer vacation).

The best way to get the mojo going is to join some challenges.  CAS-ual Fridays has a fun theme challenge - feathered friends.  After looking through my bird dies and stamps, I decided to  use this perched reed bird die. The PTI heart die was embossed on card base. Even though it is a simple card, it did take me long time to finish.

Tomorrow is my short run and Pilate's class day.  Hope I am not too tired to make a card tomorrow night.

Thanks for stopping by!

cardstock: PTI rustic white, Bazzill orange zest, ocean tide
Stamp: Amuse avian note stamp set
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Other: Memory box perched reed bird die, PTI heart die, Fiskars pinking shears, DeNami button
