PaperCrafts Published Cards

This card is in the new Stamp It! CARDS magazine.

So here it is - my first PaperCrafts published card. This is in the current Jan/Feb issue. This card is special for another reason though. I have a large collection of early 1900's postcards that belonged to my dad's mom. This sweet image is from that collection. I wish I could show you what is written on the back. It's the most charming little note - things were so innocent back then.

Moxie Fab Start to Finish Challenge/Blog Hop

Here is the front of my card. I love houses, architecture, picking wall colors and decorating. I was very excited when I first saw glimpses of Papertrey Ink's Boards and Beams stamp set. It has so many fun sentiments and I can 'paint' these houses over and over again.

...and the inside. I don't usually do so much to the inside of a card. It was fun making the inside match the front. Double click for a closer look.

The hearts image is from Hero Arts So Sweet clear set. Sentiment is also Hero Arts. PP is Basicgrey Nook and Pantry.. CS is Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush. I feather stitched alont the yellow floral pp with my sewing machine.

Coastal Living Tuesday Trigger

The image for this week's Tuesday Trigger is so beautiful and calming. I used one of my favorite sets from Papertrey Ink, On My Couch. It's fun to build little scenes with this set. I also used some images from On My Couch additions. Sentiment is from Papertery Tea for Two.
