Two for One

I spent this past weekend at the Joyce Meyer Women’s Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. I traveled with a group of ladies from my church and had an amazing time. I left the conference feeling incredibly blessed and refreshed!!! Now in order to try to desperately catch myself up with the Card A Day Challenge this post is going to have two cards in one post.

Here is the first card:

This card actually started as a result of a failed attempt from a couple weeks ago. The dry embossed arrows were cut from a previous card I had made and just wasn’t quite happy with how it turned out. So being the papercrafting hoarder that I am I set it aside just in case I could find future use for it…which I did!!!

I cut out individual arrows to the desired length and adhered them to the card. (I had used a rubber brayer and Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink® to add color to the arrows) The Kraft Cardstock hearts are actually scraps I saved from the banner I used when making the Adorable Baby Card….(once again the hoarding rears it’s ugly head!!!) I added a little bling by using Bitty Sparkles in the center of the hearts.

The sentiment is from the Card Chatter-Sympathy Stamp Set stamped in Bamboo Exclusive Ink®.


The second card was inspired by Therese Calvird and made for my mom’s birthday which we just celebrated on Sunday. My mom and I share a lot of similar interests including papercrafting meaning we get to spend a lot of time together…Which I absolutely love!

The face of the card is made using Hollyhock Cardstock. I cut a circle towards the center of the card and placed a layer of B&T Duo® paper from the Claire Paper Packet (retired). Using 3D Foam Tape I added dimension to the Hollyhock Cardstock by making it stand off the patterned paper.

The butterfly is stamped and cut using a Sizzix Stamp and Die combo on vellum paper, and heat embossed using Versamark and Stampendous embossing powder.

To add some final finishing touches to the card I added a bow using Baker’s Twine Neutral Assortment and Pink Glitter Gems from Close To My Heart.  I also used a paper piercer around the edge of the circle to add extra texture to the card.

These cards complete the 3×3 Card and the Use A Circle for the Card A Day Challenge.
