Basketful of Carrots

Good Evening!

Happy Easter!

I have one Easter card to share before the holiday leaves...

Ellie is our dog and she is obsessed with eating carrots.  So I made this card for her using the inspiration from this week's Inspired By Challenge for the card.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Come back soon!

Eternal Flame Trio

 I have one more post for today.  As I've been trying to get crafty more regularly again, I've been sorting through ALOT of handmade backgrounds from my stash to finally use.  These cards are from one of those - using alcohol inked iridescent cardstock.  I used the Eternal Flame Cover Plate by Catherine Pooler Designs(CP Designs).  Unfortunately I forgot to use some Press n Seal to keep all the negative pieces in place to stick on the other card base.  So, it took me an entire evening to get them all pieced in the right places for the negative one. WHEW!  lol. And, yes, there is a crystal gem missing on the one diamond birthday card, but that has been resolved.  Just too lazy to retake photos. 

Other supplies for above card: Border die (Pretty Pink Posh); Foiled sentiment word (Pinkfresh Studio); Diamond embossing folder (Cuttlebug); Plain circle die cut (CP Designs) inked in Pucker Up ink (CPDesigns) 

Other supplies for above card: diamond tag die (Pretty Pink Posh); Birthday sentiment, diamond border and diamond shape stamps (Catherine Pooler Designs); Silver metallic ink (Catherine Pooler Inks);  Tranquil and Pucker Up inks (CP Designs), clear gems.

Other Supplies for above card: Circle die cut (Pinkfresh Studios); Sentiment (Catherine Pooler Designs) and Faithful Flutterings stamp set (retired - Catherine Pooler Designs); Tranquil, Pucker Up and Pixie Dust inks (CP Designs).

Thanks for visiting.  Come back soon!


 One more card for St. Patrick's Day!

This one uses up the rest of the alcohol inked vellum background that I used in the card from the last post.  I had a pretty good sized piece.  This time, I cut out a shamrock in the middle, added the word die, layered, and popped up a stitched layer.

Hello again!
A post for the celebratory St. Patrick's Day.

(Inside of card)

I have been sorting through some homemade backgrounds and wanted to use this alcohol inked vellum background I created.  I used the shamrock dies by Pretty Pink Posh to cut out negatives from a solid inked background (Minted CP Ink) and then adhered it to the alcohol inked background.  Next I decided to make it a full card shaker.  I used some craft plastic to make my pouch.  I think next time I will forage for some discarded stamp set plastic as this plastic was thicker and a little hard to bend.  At any rate, it worked. I added lots of green and yellow gold sequins.  I finished the card off by adding a large Shamrock inked in CP Mardis Gras ink and a sentiment embossed on Deck The Halls ink (CP Ink again).

Lucky You

 Well, hello there!

It's been a very long time since I shared anything here on my blog.  Life has been busy in the Salkeld's Sweet Suite.  I have had some crafty time here and there but just haven't spent much time to blog.  Finally, I have had time to even play in a few challenges!

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and so I have made a couple St. Patrick's cards.  Our neighbors have an annual St. Patrick's party and so one of my cards goes to them.  This card I made using the sketch at AAA Cards latest challenge.
