May 2018 LFL Challenge

Card Number 2 for the Love from Lizi challenge!
This one is pattern-rific. From the papers to creations with stamps and embossing powder (the dots).
I actually left the inside alone for this one!

Love from Lizi Challenge

Image
Love from Lizi (also known as my latest obsession) has a challenge posted on their blog. Being the slowpoke I am with crafting- and the interference of my other jobs- ie engineer, restaurant owner , mother, wife etc.- I don't have all the cards I planned done yet 😔
But on goes the world -- so here is the challenge
It is located at https://www.lovefromlizi.com/blog/post/love-from-lizi-may-2018-challenge/
And here is my first card as an entry: I am using the Love form Lizi stamp set, same pipe cleaners that were included in the kit as a challenge. A little ribbon to top it off 😊. The inside was completed by adding a My Favorite Thing stamp. I may have gone a little stamp happy with the flowers but I had fun!


Card Gift Box

Image
Using the Love from Lizi May 2018 card kit, I created this gift box full of mini cards. These measure 4 - 1/4" square. These were sized so they could fit in a regular envelope. But then, of course, I decided to handmade matching envelopes anyway. I used Neenah Solar White 120lb for the card bases. And a little something on the insides too - because - I can't seem to help myself.


A Scrapbook Layout - What?

Image
I am literally 10 years behind on my scrapbooks. I deserve to sit in the crafting room corner! When my daughters brought home this fun photo strip from a night on the town I was afraid I'd lose it - so I scrapped it instead! Love from Lizi papers mixed with some Love from Lizi extras I had left over - as well as other miscellaneous stash items.


Inside and Out

Image
As influenced by Prairie Paper and Ink, I typically finish the inside as well as the outside of my cards. It just feels like I'm not quite done until I add at least something small on the inside.

These cards were created using products purchased from Love from Lizi as well as my Kuretake watercolors on Arches Aquarelle Watercolor paper.

I wonder how many people decorate the inside of their cards.
