Snapdragon Phone Stand

New useable/functional art to match a card I created a few posts back.

Altenew Build-a-Flower Snapdragon/Mesmerizing Pours Paper Pad, Sizzix Scoreboards XL Eileen Hull Phone Stand die, Verve Stamps Potter's Clay sentiment, Hero Arts Rounded Rectangles

It's cut from a phone stand die from Sizzix and Eileen Hull.

I used heavy white chipboard 

(12X12 trimmed and angled to fit the length of this XL die).

The bottom piece allows for patterned paper to be cut with the same die.

Here's a peek down in there:

This time it's Lindsey's choice, and her prompt is Critters that Hop~


This bunny ...he looks like he does anything BUT hop! ;)

I had in mind that he was doing yoga~much like my hubby and I have been trying to do together (youtube classes).

Honestly, we haven't done THIS particular pose, but I would love it if we did, you know?

IT would be my fave. ;)

I added some texture, with an embossing folder, for this fun challenge:

Since its such a large card, the dots ground the sentiment and image in this sea of white~

Heartfelt Sympathy Blue Poppy

As this card came together, it seemed fitting to make it a sympathy card.

It's nice to make one when I don't have to make one, you know?

The Ton Stamps Grouped Fresh Poppies, Papertrey Ink Brushed Off Rectangle, Verve (no longer in business) New Mercies, Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Simon Says (Monday): Feminine

I was inspired by this photo of blue flowers and wanted to make sure and create something with these colors~ 

I was inspired by the following sketch:

Hey Girl Wine Bottle Tag

What's with all the wine bottle tags marlena...

yah, I don't know.

But I'm on a roll, aren't I? ;)


Papertrey Ink Wine Bottle Tag 2 die, Altenew Mesmerizing Pours Paper Pad/Build-a-Flower Snapdragon, Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Banner Duo, Picket Fence Studios Hey Girl

You know how it is, you create one and it just isn't right and you end up with all these beautiful parts and you want to find them a home...

I figure I'd ride this train until I want to make something else.

I had to.

Papertrey Ink Wine Bottle Tag 2 die, Riley & Company Not Everyone Can Be Irish, Memory Box Pinpoint Main Street Tag, Darice Fourth of July Sparkler Embossing Folder, Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Banner Duo, Tim Holtz Distress Inks


This sentiment cracks. Me. Up.


My late Father-in-Law looked like a leprechaun. ;)

When he teased me hard...I used to call him Lucky.

Gosh I miss him. 

This is where my brain went when I saw this prompt.

I can almost hear him laughing...
