Celebrate Wedding Card

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week! Can you believe we are almost at the end of July already? Gosh, when did that happen? I swear the older I get the faster time flies, eek!

I have a quick wedding card to share today using a couple new dies I had picked up recently. I had a little time to play in my craft room (yeah) and it was perfect timing as my daughter was in need of a wedding card this weekend :)
The background is created with Worn Lipstick and Cracked Pistachio Oxide inks. After it dried, I ran texture paste through a Tim Holtz layering stencil. I layered the Memory Box Honeycomb Remnant  die and cheesecloth between the layers. The next layer is the Poppy Stamps Florisma Trail die followed with the gorgeous Round Flower Lace Metal die which I picked up online.
I added a stitched circle to the center from Jaded Blossoms. I popped this couple with foam adhesives for dimension. The bride and groom is a die I picked up at Dies R Us
The flowers and white Babies Breath flowers are from Wild Orchids. The leaves are from Frantic Stamper Assorted Foliage die set. The sentiment is Tutti Designs Celebrate Word die. The gorgeous ribbon is from DL ART.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #208 Anything Goes
2.) DL.ART July Linky Challenge 
3.) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #292-293 Anything Goes

Thanks

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone! 
I hope your having a great day~
I was able to sneak in some crafty time...finally!! I miss everyone in blog land! Things have been very busy in our neck of the woods. We've been spending a lot of time with our grandchildren as we welcome two new grand babies to the family (this makes 5 now). Oliver Jay 2 months old and
Kimber Ann 2 weeks old. I have also been doing a lot of traveling to go back to visit my Dad who is still in the Stroke Recovery Center recovering from the stroke he had in April. My time has been very limited these past few months with crafting and blogging but I hope to get back to a regular schedule very soon.

I am sharing a couple of "quick" and "simple" cards I created today.  I used some of the distressed Oxides inks which I finally got a chance to try. I used the worn lipstick and cracked pistachio on
these cards.
After creating the water colored background, I used a Sizzix thinlits Mixed Media die to create a stencil and ran embossing paste to add texture. I distressed the edges with the DIA. The pretty doily in the center is the Frantic Stamper Lace Geometric Flower Doily Die and layered on Jaded Blossoms Stitched Circle Die.
Along the bottom I used the pretty Thanks Scallop Border Die die from Simon Says Stamps. I added a little ribbon from my stash and gathered it along the edge of the border.
The cluster of flowers are Recollections and Wild Orchids mixed pastel apple blossoms. Beneath the flowers are Cherry Lynn Designs Dandelions Die and Sue Wilson Designs Mosaic Leaves from Scrapy Land. The gorgeous butterfly is Die Versions Pretty Butterflies Die.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Simon Says Monday Challenge Distress it
2.) DL.ART July Linky Anything Goes
3.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #196 Anything Goes

Just a little note

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone! 
I hope your having a great week so far~
A little update on why I've been missing and posts have been very scattered~ For those who follow me, pretty much know there has been a lot going on in my life since the new year.  I've have had a lot on my plate lately traveling back and forth often as my Dad was recovering from a broken pelvis in Dec to now recovering from a major stroke in April which has left him with some short memory loss and a loss of his vision which has been very difficult and just saddens my heart.

On a happy note, we had a new grandson, Oliver who is now 3 weeks old and another grandchild due to arrive in about 3 weeks. We have been trying to spend time with little Oliver as much as we can not to mention I watch my little granddaughters 2 days a week so this Nanny is pooped by the end of the day, lol!

I am so happy I found some time to sneak away in my craft room...I've been missing it so much!! I am going to "try" to take at least 1 day a week to craft, blog for now. That is about all I can allow right now. So, hopefully you will see my blog a bit more active?! Thanks for all of you who have stuck with me...I appreciate it more than you know!

Today, I have a couple really quick cards to share that I made using a file from the Silhouette Store and cut  on my Cameo. I dipped into an older stack of pattern papers from Stampin Up that I just got to use up...I have so much.
What do you all do with older pattern prints? I hate to get rid of it, it's so pretty!

I added pretty brads from Paper Studio to the centers of the flowers. The sentiment is stamped with My Creative Time's Just Because Stamp set.
This was super easy to cut out and put together if your looking for a quick set of cards! I definitely will be making some more of these.  Maybe, even make a matching card box to hold 6 and give these as a gift set?! 
I am entering this in the following challenge:
1.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #192 Anything Goes
2.) DL.ART June Linky Challenge~Anything Goes
3.) PDE Linky Challenge #176 Cards
4.) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #286-287 Anything Goes

I added a cute little flower to the lid to match the tag. I used Jaded Blossoms Scallop Circle Die and then the Flower Dies for the flower. I tied on some pretty SU ribbon and added a cute little tag with My Craft Spots~Tiny Tags Metal Dies and the sentiment is the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set. (no longer available) 
Arya was excited to fill the cute insulated bag with a few treats, an asst note set, pen set and handmade lotion...zipped it up and added the cute tag to the outside~
We can't thank the Teachers enough for all they do.....they are amazing!! She had a wonderful year at Queen Of Peace and is looking forward to Kindergarten next year :)
