Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

Last day for the April Diva Challenge!

Hi everyone - if you haven't entered our Window or Aperture Challenge at Die Cut Divas, you have until 9p Pacific Time today!! You don't need to use Poppystamps products like we are, just be sure to use a window or aperture in your design along with a die cut or an embossing folder. We'd love to see you in the gallery!! 

The end-of-month team (which includes me) has a post up for inspiration. Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper - Neenah, Paper Studio, Momenta
Dies - Poppy Stamps Cottage Window &
Sunny Studio Botanical Backdrop;
A Jillian Vance Design Dot Stitched Rectangle
Stamps - Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit 3/2021;
Taylored Expressions A Few Phrases &
Other - Copic Markers; Memento inks

My design features the darling Cottage Window die set from Poppystamps. I used it to make an actual window to the inside of the card backed by a piece of acetate. Here's a view of the inside with the open window:

I cut the acetate with the same rectangle die as the card front/back and glued with Nuvo liquid glue which dried nice & clear. I scored the back rectangle at .5 and glued to the front one to form the card base. My flower came from a Poppystamp easel card set & the flower stem is a leftover piece of a leafy frame.

Thanks again to our fabulous sponsor Poppystamps!! Be sure to check back at Die Cut Divas tomorrow for a new challenge and on the 3rd for the April winner announcement.

Thanks for stopping!!
