Challenge 348 – Super Cityscape

Sorry everyone that it has been awhile since I last posted a card. I have another card for you all from a Try Stampin on Tuesday challenge. If you want to see stuff more often check my Instagram @kraftykaylin.

I turned the sketch around a little to make my superhero card work out. I made a fun galaxy sky with my distress inks and some white paint. I had so much fun making the fun background especially the splatter stars.

Challenge 344 – Double Cup of Coffee

Still feeling the fall vibes for this card. So I went with a great coffee get well card complete with a little paper piecing goodness. It was great fun to mix patterned paper with my own hand stamped paper. Lucky for me the cups from MayMay are easy to fussy cut out.
