Oh Happy Day

July 13, 2020

Karen here today from Craftily Yours! When I sat down to craft today, I decided I just wanted to craft something FuN and positive. There’s so much craziness in the world, and crafting gives me my sanity breaks. I’m sure it’s the same for many of you.

I started off with two Stitched Rectangle Die cuts (2nd largest size) of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. On the left, I used Distress Oxide in Faded Jeans and the Dot Dot Dot stencil. On the right, I used Distress Oxide in Speckled Egg and the Make Your Mark Stencil.

Love those fun stencils. I also mixed up a bit of Wilted Violet with some water and splashed it with a paint brush here and there.

I took another two pieces of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and inked one up with more Faded Jeans, Speckled Egg and Wilted Violet. On this one, I stamped from the Garden Flowers and First Sights of Spring stamps and fussy cut out the flowers. On the second piece, I inked it up with Mowed Lawn and Iced Spruce and die cut the Blooming Branches dies. Finally, I stamped two sentiments on pieces that were left over using the Pieces of Life 4 – Retro stamps. I die cut them with a small circle I found in the Planner Labels set.

I had a bit of this fun lacy paper in my stash, so I also die cut this piece using the Planner Patterns dies. I cut it in half so I’d have enough for two cards. Each half is tucked behind a piece of the Reminiscence paper that I cut a few strips of for each card.

Finally, I assembled it all and added a few diamond dots and then added it to a card base. I love how my arty cards turned out and am grateful for you stopping by to take a look!

Craftily yours, Karen
