Welcome to Crafts By Darlene. I love anything I can paint, stamp, cut or glue. I started out over 20 years ago doing local craft shows. Now I spend most of my time paper crafting. I have two wonderful daughters and a supportive husband that loves everything I make!
These cards were so much fun to make because they were so simple and could be altered to have different looks with different color ink, ribbon and cardstock. The Hot Air Balloon is a Michael's $1.00 stamp. The Pattern paper are scrap pieces.. Save those SCRAPS! Add a little remnant piece of ribbon and a phrase/saying and you have a great card!
I just finished this cute Jungle themed layout for a friend of the family. I think it turned out pretty cute. I loved using my crimper.. one of those tools that you might have, but you forgot about! The animals are raised with pop dots and the background is stamped with leaves to give it a jungle feel. Hope you like!~
