Crafter's Gonna Craft

 Good Morning, Stampers!

Today's post is an extra special post that I am so excited to share with you! I have been a member of the Create with Connie and Mary team for OVER 10 years! WOW! Can you believe it??!! They are featuring their designers so that you have a chance to get to know them all a little better and TODAY IS MY DAY!

I began as a guest designer before becoming a full-time designer for their Mini Sessions. Then, I moved on to the Thursday Challenge group and finally settled into the Saturday Challenge group. Create with Connie and Mary has evolved a lot over the years and I am truly blessed to be a part of such an amazing group of talented stampers. Connie and Mary are the best!

My favorite stamp set as of today (it changes daily!) is Handmade for You. I love creating personal cards and gifts expecially for crafters and any set that features handmade/crafty images and sentiments are at the top of my list!


To recreate this card:
1. Cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"" Very Vanilla card base and fold in half.
2. Emboss the card front using the Little Details embossing folder.
3. Tie the Very Vanilla ribbon around the top and tie in a knot.
4. Cut a 2 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Blushing Bride cardstock.
5. Stamp the handmade sentiment all over using Whisper White ink and adhere to the card front.
6. Stamp the sentiment onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Early Espresso Ink. 
7. Cut with the heart die cut.
8. Cut a 3" piece of lace trim and adhere to the card front.
9. Adhere the heart to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
10. Cut the flowers and leaves and adhere to the card front.
11. Cut the buttons and adhere to he card front.
12. Stamp the maniquin onto Very Vanilla cardsotck using Early Epsresso ink. Cut.
