Beautiful Friendship ♥︎

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a blessed week. I'm popping in today to share a card celebrating the gift of friendship. Truly the friendships are the sweetest and loveliest part of the crafty journey. I made this to ensure a crafty pal knows just how much she is treasured by me and all who know her. ♥︎
Nature's Garden is one of the newest Crafter's Companion collections and to say I am enamored would be an understatement. It is endlessly beautiful! The Cottage Window is exquisite in design and I couldn't resist tucking a sweet kitty within it. (The kitty is from the Create-a-Card Fireplace Accessories Christmas set.) The sweet birdie and smallest butterfly are also from the Cottage Window. I love the little added elements that come with it. And oh how pretty are the papers in this collection! So much to love.
The floral arrangement is comprised of the four Stamp and Die flowers in the collection. They are stunning and perfectly represent ever-blossoming friendship love. I used Harmony Quick-Dry Ink Pads for a tonal design. The Doily Border is my new favorite border! I suspect you will see it regularly. ;) I layered two Beautiful Butterflies atop it for a double dose of whimsy.

The Friend sentiment is from the Gemini Grand Decor set, which came with the Limited Edition Gemini Junior that was recently on HSN. My precious hubby blessed me with it, for which I am grateful. ♥︎

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a sparkly day! ♥︎

Nautical Adventures

Hello, dear friends! I am fluttering back into this crafty community (consistently!) for good, which I have missed so dearly while balancing health situations. I am delighted that Crafter's Companion is keeping me on for another term and blogging will be a larger part of it this time!

I am celebrating with Sara's newest Signature Collection: Nautical!
This fun collection was on HSN last week! For my first card, I drew and cut sailboat layers the best I could as I have such an affinity for shaped cards of this sort! I used an abundance of goodies from the collection, which I will list below. The papers are beautiful, as are the stamps and dies. The charms are amongst my favorites. Truly this collection is a stunner.
For my second card, I showcased one of the beautiful embossing folders. After embossing the Ship's Anchor with watercolor paper, I inked around the anchor with Harmony Ink Pads in Aqua Blues, after which I added a few splashes of water. To highlight the anchor, I inked over it with Precious Metals Midas Ink Pads. To keep the spotlight on the folder, I simply used the lovely coordinating twine to secure my sentiment.

I had a blast creating with this collection and will certainly be playing with it again soon, as there are so many inspiration goodies in the set! It makes me excited for summer adventures. :) Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day!
