TCCCB – Envelopes

Hello, welcome to the mid-month challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

Our challenge this is to make a or decorate a gift envelope.

The sponsor I’m working with this challenge is My Stitch Back in Twine and the beautiful image is Daffodils. For my envelope, I found this tutorial on SCS for a card envelope and decided it was perfect!

The card envelope opens up and holds a couple of small gift cards inside.

I made two 4×4 cards, but you could probably fit a couple more cards in the pockets as well.

So, come on and play in this great challenge! You can link up your entry over at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog from now through the end of the month. Come and check us out!

An Adorable Image

A quick card post today. I have been doing another round of the Baker’s Dozen swap at Splitcoast Stampers. You are paired up with a fellow crafter and send a card per week, for 13 weeks. I am paired with the lovely Ina, who I enjoy chatting with! I am thankful for her beautiful cards and for the little goodies she sometimes puts inside.

A few weeks ago, she sent me this cute image, along with a matching sentiment. So, I decided to craft it up and send it back to her with one of my weekly cards. Hope she enjoys it!

Thanks for stopping by!

2018 Card Kit Swap – Kit 4/9

Well, after a couple days’ break for other challenges and goodies, I’m back at the card kits. I’ve been working through the 9 kits I received from the 2018 Card Kit Shower swap.

Next up is Barb’s great kit, and I’ve got two cards for you today.

The first uses SCS sketch 322, rotated into a horizontal orientation. I worked hard to try to get the colors in this image to match the great paper Barb sent.

And this second card I played with my colors a little, so had to tone down the pinks and other colors of the papers a bit. Love how this one turned out! It’s inspired by SCS sketch 323.

Thanks for a great kit, Barb! That’s four down, five to go. We’ll see you again soon with more card creations.
