Welcome to my blog! I had started a new blog to encompass my husband's and my journeys, but did not like the platform we were using, so I have reactivated this blog. I am currently pursuing my Master's of Education, so I will not be posting much, but will display the few crafts I have been able to complete. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you find something to inspire you!

Stamp-a-faire: Challenge #1

There are challenges happening at Capture the Moment !  There are continual challenges occurring every hour until midnight.  The first challenge is: Create a project featuring patterned strips that are created with some of your favorite decorative elements. You have until 11:59pm EST to leave your link and be eligible to win your very own copy of Iconic images! Only one link per person please.

My patterned strips are made from a Tone-on-Tone technique using the CTMH Ritzy Ribbon acrylic stamp set, stamped with CTMH Tropical Blue stamp pad on Tropical Blue cs.  The flowers,stitches and sentiment is from the CTMH Simple Stitches.  Lime green brads are put in the center of the flowers.  The needle is embossed with CTMH silver embossing powder and the sentiment with CTMH white embossing powder.  The chipboard is from the Basic Grey Undressed Periphery set and was sponged with Tropical Blue.  Another strip of Tropical Blue cs has a Martha Stewart border punch used on it and the strip is wrapped around the right side of the card.  Green Glitterazzi Mini Gem Lines are used down both sides of the paper strip and Studio 18 green rhinestones are placed down the middle of the strip.  This completes Challenge #1.
