Scooping Up a Card or Two Plus ICAD Week 3 results

Hello friends!  You ever have one of those weeks where no matter how you try to make ends meet, something always goes wrong to mess you up again and get you off track?  This week was just one of those weeks!  No matter how hard I tried to stay on top of things, something would go wrong and so much so that supper has been really late almost every night.  So I am glad to post something here and glad it is Friday honestly!  LOL!

I have a mixed bag of creations to share with you today, so I hope you enjoy this post and get some sort of inspiration with it!

Vicki-BM-SprinkledwithLove-cardkit

Let’s start with this fun birthday card I made using that piece of background paper that I made at the stamp convention!  (If you don’t remember it, check out THIS POST to see it!)  It seemed to be the perfect colors to use with this new Brutus Monroe “Sprinkled with Love” card kit!  I actually die cut the background piece using the Lawn Fawn cross-stitched rectangle dies and then heat embossed the sentiment from the BM Sprinkled with Love stamp set from the kit.  I took the ice cream cone image, stamped and colored it in and cut out that panel with the same die as the background.  Mounted it over black along with the background piece, added some glitter touches with gel pens, Spectrum Noir glitter pen for the heart and then covered it with glossy accents.  I then added a black piece of twine to the cone and then took those gorgeous colored pearls from the card kit and glued them in the upper right corner of the design.  All was mounted onto an A2 sized card base.  I have sooooo many things left from this kit, so I know I’ll be sharing more!  Yummy stuff! 🙂

And speaking of the Stamp Convention goodies, I fell in love with the sparkly bird card that I made from one of the vendor booths and bought up a couple of packages of the kits they had!  My mom bought a couple of them as well.  When we got back to our room, we decided it would be fun to split up the kits so we have a variety of the images to use!  (Each kit contained enough to make 12 cards!)  So she bought this eagle set and this is what I’ve used for this card.  The sparkle against the transparency looks amazing!  I embellished the corners and added the sentiment with the foil stickers from the kit.  The paper and envelope are furnished in the kit…pretty much just assemble…can’t get any easier than that!  Check it out from Stamp On It!  (They have many of them!)

Vicki-ICAD2018-week3

So as you know from the last couple of weeks of postings that I’ve been participating in this Daisy Yellow ICAD challenge.  You can find my postings about the past ones I’ve created by clicking on the “ICAD” archives link at the top left of this post.

As mentioned before, I cannot share the prompts or themes, but it is something that I work on each day…yes…no matter how hard it gets, I’m getting out my index card and playing around with something!  Today’s card is not shown (it’s in next week’s grouping), but I’ve noticed that my “makings” are in conjunction with the mood I have for that day…pretty interesting I’d say!  If you haven’t looked into this challenge, I encourage you to give it a try.  Some days are just hard to figure out what you’re going to be doing and other days you just know.  🙂

On another note, I got a couple of hand-made cards in the mail and I think they always deserve special attention and I’m very grateful for recieving them…always brings a smile to my day when I get one!  Here they are:

handmade cards from friends

The card on the left came from a dear friend that I came to know as being apart of the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen design team.  A special thank you to Jacquline for the stunning card and lovely note!  The card on the right came from my aunt who is an avid stamper and into the Stampin’ Up! products due to my own fault!  LOL!  She made me a very sweet and clever pet sympathy card.  As you may have seen on the sidebar of my blog -my sweet little Mocca passed away this last February.  My heart still aches and I miss her so very much every single day.  I will post more on that later on, but I so appreciate the thoughtfulness of these lovely cards!

So that’s all the shares I have for you today and hope that will be enough to tied you over until next week as I will have a bit more time for a routine after this horrible week is now over with! LOL!    I thank you for your continued support by following, liking, commenting or just looking, it is always appreciated!  Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Wow! I’m sorry your week was so crazy, but I’m happy that I’m not the only one this has happened to… I’m probably going to have to step away from creating for several months, as life threw us a pretty big curve ball last week. Love your beautiful projects, dear friend! Thanks for sharing with us!

    1. I’m sorry to hear you’re not getting updates on your reading list! Not sure what reader you are using, but I find that if I copy the link directly and paste it manually into my reader, it works better that way. Not sure if you noted that my blog URL address is completely different from the old blogger URL address I had, so maybe check that too? If there is something I can do to help with that, please let me know. Thank you for your comments always as I love seeing what you create too! Enjoy your weekend! HUGS
