Color Week Challenge #567: Notable Note Cards

Over on the Just Us Girls challenge blog, they deemed it color week. I haven't done any crafting since the holiday despite receiving a number of new dies and stamps. Thankfully, this challenge was just what I needed to try out my all new Note Pocket Die. The challenge set forth was to use three shades of any blue:

The tricky part of the die was it's only one die template, so you needed to cut two versions of it and trim it down. I then embossed the bottom piece to give it a little texture and used stamps from Lawn Fawn to complete the look. Here's the result:

And as you can see from the next picture, you can out the back piece to write a special note to a loved one:

They're a little more time consuming than you would think for such a small piece. That said, I am still happy with the end result. I then went on to using a pink theme to make a few more of these. These stamps came from Wonton in a Million.

Overall I'm very happy with the note card. How practical it is or if any prospective buyers would be interested is anyone's guess. Nevertheless, it's something different and was the perfect thing to get my creative workings jump started for 2021.

Anna Griffin Empress Machine Review

For the past few months, I've really given my Anna Griffin Empress Machine a workout. For those not in the know, The Empress is a high powered non-crank emboss and die cutting machine. It's akin to devices such as the Cuttlebug, The Big Shot, or the Gemini. I Have a Cricut / Cameo / Silhouette - Why This? The short answer is, you can create texture in your cards. While the aforementioned devices are no doubt powerful and create designs that the Empress can only dream about, there's no doubt that emboss machines give textures and creates intricacy that cutting machines cannot compete with. My most complimented cards are not the ones with the most layers or even the most elegant, rather it's the cards with texture. Cricut and other Cutting Machines just lack that  ability to create the"feel" of a higher quality card. Pros of the Empress I absolutely adore my Empress. For those with arthritis or other mobility issues, a device like the Empress is a

Fab Friday #194 Entry: Fantastic Flip Card

This week, I finally used my Fantastic Flip Dies from Anna Griffin. I decided to make the card using the color palette designated by Fab Friday Challenge Blog . The colors were as follows: The color palette gave me a beach vibe; that said, I wanted to kind of flip the colors on their head. After much searching, I found a beautiful wallpaper print, and decided that would be the basis of the card. The trickiest color to implement was the Bermuda Bay color. In order to create a surprise, you only see hints of the bay while it's close, and the color doesn't truly shine until you see the card fully open. The card didn't exactly come out the way I planned originally. I expected the background to be uniform (since the directions indicated that double sided paper was suggested). It means the emboss didn't really shine the way it would on monochromatic paper, but I chose this paper specifically for the challenge. Still, after it sat for a while, I became fond of the two sided pa

CAS[E] this Sketch! Challenge #399 Entry: Holly and Christmas Truck Cards

This week over on the CAS[E] this Sketch! Blog  they offered a clean and simple sketch that was a pure delight. As those around here know, CAS cards are not really my specialty. I spend much more time with layers upon layers; nevertheless, this allowed me to go to the basics and get some simple Christmas Cards done. The sketch was as follows: I really wanted to stay true to the blocking of the sketch. Ultimately, I created four variations on the sketch design. My first card leaned into the sketch as shown. I used some holiday scraps to give the design a little pop. My second card used the same scraps, but with a different stamp sentiment. This is the second time this week I've used this Truck Recollections stamp, but I really can't get enough of it. Something about the truck and plaid played really nicely together. I then went for the green variations: Really the exact same set up in green. And here was the fourth variation: In the background you can see my gorgeous new rainbo
