Curtain Call is 1 year old – CONGRAGULATIONS! They are celebrating with an Anything Goes challenge, and lots of fun goodies to give away. I had fun playing with some of my PTI dies, and came up with a couple of great baby cards. I know that I spend far too much time drooling over […]

CAS(E) This Sketch: Challenge #78

by Meghan Rowe on June 2, 2014, no comments

Julie Day’s design this week at CAS(E) This Sketch is incredibly versatile, however; not withstanding it still took me a few days and a few different attempts to create a card I was happy with. I loved the challenge though, and the time in my craft room. I finally settled on inlaid die cut balloons with white heat embossed strings. […]

A great opportunity to work on a card for challenge #44: Stamps: SU Curly Cues Paper: SU Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Basic […]

One-Layer Wednesday 73: Ohmmmmm

by Meghan Rowe on December 16, 2011, 2 comments

In the midst of busy Christmas preparations, Simplicity’s OLW 73 was exactly what I needed! Make a one layer card that says peace in some way. Last night I realized that while I had been helping others make Christmas cards, I had neglected to make Christmas cards for my family (whoops); I sat down and […]

One-Layer Wednesday 72: Variations on a Sentiment

by Meghan Rowe on December 1, 2011, 10 comments

Basically the rules for Simplicity’s OLW 72 were to use one sentiment to make two different cards without any bling, other stamps or embellishments in a non standard size. My first card took me less than 5 minutes to make; I stamped and embossed the sentiment in white to add texture and interest. Both cards measure […]
