Create with TLC: Friendship


Happy Thursday everyone!  What's your plans for the upcoming weekend?  I hope to do some crafting tomorrow night with my crafting buddies.  I have a few projects I would like to get checked off my list as "done!"  Saturday I hope to get up early and walk to my mom's house.  It is about a 6 mile walk so I am looking forward to it.  My fingers are crossed for dry sunny weather.  I don't need it to be warm (would prefer that it wasn't) because walking will keep me nice and toasty.  I love walking especially this time of year when God is changing out the landscape and added dashes of yummy jewel colors everywhere.  My tree is already losing her leaves.  Wowzer!

I am dropping in today to share a card I made using Sylvia Zet Wee stamp "Amy."  I had created a frame for my e-buddy Kim to use with a card she was making.  She wanted me to design her something that would work with a circle easel card.  You can check out the card and frame here on her blog.  (I will be selling this frame and many other soon. So keep a look out here for further details.  You can email me at cards by candy at yahoo dot com if you are intersted in me designing one for you.).  When I saw what image she was using I told her how much I really liked the image, but I didn't own any.  Well, I lied.  I didn't know they were called Wee stamps.  I saved the three that I have as Sylvia Zet stamps which are also called Wee stamps apparently.  Well long story that I am about to make very short, I used "Amy" to make my card.  I also designed another frame called "Friendship" to go along with this stamp.

Here's my creation...

This card has multiple stories that led to its creation.  I just told you about the first one and now here's the second story, oddly enough involving Kim once again. lol  Kim proposed a challenge to me, (which she does often) to figure out how to use my Cameo to "cut out-of-the box."  We crafters do this often with our Nestabilities and scissors, but she wanted me to figure out how to make the machine do all the work.  I immediately took on the challenge and literally 15 minutes later, I had Ms. Amy cut out in a cirlce and her balloon sticking out of the circle.  I truly think God put her in my life to challenge me (in a good way).  Well done my friend! lol 

Okay, enough stories and now on to how I put this card together.  Well I started with 6x6 kraft card base, layered on some pink Bazzill cardstock and then MME Miss Caroline dp which I stitched on the sewing machine.  I then cut out the friendship frame and the sentiment mat using the pink cardstock.  I flipped the dp and used a strip to run across the center of my card with a Kraft mat.  I colored my image using Copics, Stickles and Copica pen.  I added some flowers from Wild Orchid and I could not complete this card without adding the perfect sentiment from Create with TLC

Moral of this blog post...don't be afraid to take on a challenge. :-)
