You Are The Best

Happy Monday! Today I’m home with the kids and decided to play along with one of my favorite challenges,  the Runway Inspired Challenge:


This iconic Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress features a bold pattern with a lot of movement. Love it! Let’s get to the card I created:

Encouragement Cards

I cut out banners and used a variety of border stamps and different inks in colors similar to the dress.  I also added vellum banners and washi banners to help create the illusion of movement.  I added paper string and stapled the banners to bring this card together.  So fun and fast!  Thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra


Making a Difference

Today I’m playing along (at the last possible minute — ha!) with the latest Curtain Call Challenge: Watermelon Wonder:

Love those colors! So airy and light.

I created this card:


The butterfly is from a set of burlap stickers by Little Yellow Bicycle, stamped with distressed ink in ripe persimmon.  I wrapped the die cut flower around the card and accented with sequins and a little feathered ribbon.  The beautiful sentiment is from Flourishes.  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend! xo- Tyra

You’ve Got a Friend

Today I’m playing along with the latest Runway Inspired ChallengeStella McCartney.  The bedazzled mini skirt against a white background is fabulous!


This is the card I created:


The collage of hearts, arrows and abstract shapes are die cuts from an old patterned paper (Pebbles – American Crafts) and yellow card stock. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  The crazy arrows and colors work together to create a sense of movement.  Maybe this card is ready to rip the runway! Thanks for stopping by! xo – Tyra
