Crafting is a Work of Heart | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Hello, everyone! I hope you had a beautiful 4th of July and enjoyed some lovely fireworks, if that’s your sort of thing!

Last week I signed up for Splitcoaststampers’ monthly “Tickle a Teapotter” challenge, in which we’re given the opportunity to surprise a fellow SCS member with a card along the lines of whatever the challenge is that month, something I enjoy signing up for when the timeframe suits me as it’s a thrill to make a card for another cardmaker!

A thrill, and a bit scary, too… I am always a bit worried they’ll notice any oopsies that non-cardmakers would likely be entirely immune too. 😉

Silly Rabbit Easter Card | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Creative ruts. They kind of stink!

I sat down last Wednesday or Thursday with some spare time on my lunch break and my stamp catalog and potential Easter-related dies in my lap, pen and paper in hand, to come up with a starting point for the Easter card I wanted to make.

I had an idea in my head, but it was a foggy one, and I didn’t know if and how I could make it work with what supplies I had on hand. See, Easter is such a beautiful season – a reminder of the proof that the Gift we were given with the birth of our Savior was a true gift indeed when as a sinless man He died for us… and rose again, just as He said. Just like He will again for us as He promised and we are reminded of throughout Scripture.

But I’m not going to lie… I adore those cute Easter bunnies we see everywhere these days, too!

MMTPT701 Teapotter Tickle with Altenew Small Moments | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Good evening, crafty world! I’m popping in quick to share a card I created to send to a fellow Teapotter in last week’s Tickle a Teapotter on Splitcoast!

I had so much fun creating this card for a fellow crafter – and I was so excited I lost some sleep the night before I planned on making it, my mind racing with ideas!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

I was super excited when I opened the Lawn Fawn Charity Grab Bag I ordered last December to find the adorable Simply Celebrate Spring stamp set! Of course, in December my creative thoughts included nothin’ but snow and cozy ambiance, but other than a few flower sets, my collection greatly lacked spring themed products, especially for “true Spring” occasions like graduations and the theme of today’s card (and this week!): St. Patrick’s Day!

I’ve likely never created a St. Patrick’s Day card (in my life), but they’ve always appealed to me – bright, happy, and full of one of my longtime favored colors: GREEN! Plus, I was positively dying to use the new scallop frame dies I ordered from My Favorite Things for my birthday recently – they are awesome in that they give you a big some of points for your birthday and I’ve been searching for dies like this for some time – so I grabbed ’em and got a discount – and had them at our door within THREE days! Holy smokes, MFT! THANK YOU! (And always – thank you for the jelly bean! I adore that and the happy tissue paper – it’s an extra delight to open a package from your company!!!)
