Enjoy With A Cherry On Top!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with my first card created for DoubleClick as a Skittles Design Team Member!!!!

I’m so excited about this opportunity!  So with no further a due, lets have fun with our first challenge.

The Challenge Theme is Ice-Cream.  Who doesn’t want ice cream in the summer time, as a matter of fact, anytime!  Very Berry Strawberry is my all time favorite ice cream.  Topped with a Cherry is always delicious!!

To create this card:

1. I used Simon Says Stamp Ice Cream Cones Craft Die and cut out four cones and four different flavor ice cream.

2. I adhered all of the cones and the ice creams with foam adhesive.

3. I added retired Stampin’ Up! Pool Party twine and tied a bow.

4. I stamped my sentiment using Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

5. I rounded the corners of my front panel and my card base using my We R Memory Corner Chomper.

6. I added Wink of Stella Clear to my ice cream.

7. Then I added my Cranberry Skittles to of my ice cream and card!!!

Who Are You Thinking Of?

Hello everyone!! First let me begin by saying THANK YOU to all of the ladies over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

I received Honorable Mention for the card that I made last week for their challenge.  How neat is that!! If you missed the card, check out the mention here.

The card I create was a cute one, I must say.  The winner Semee, her card is truly amazing and her win was well deserved.  I might have to CASE her card.  I have to ask her. (I just did, waiting for a response, LOL).

Now on to the matter at hand.

I’m here with CAS(E) this Sketch #86.  Today sketch was done by Sam Simpson.  Its simple and pretty.

Here is my card:

Thinking Of You

The strip of pattern paper is from Bo Bunny which was in my Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful Die set to cut my butterfly out of Simon Says Stamp Cardstock that came in the August Card Kit, Sunshine and Orange Peel.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple: Thinking of You Mini Stamp set to stamp my sentiment three times with Papertrey Ink’s Summer Sunrise Ink Pad.

For the add touch I added Stampin’ Up! rhinestone to the butterfly wings.

What do you think?  Let me know.

Cute! Who, Me?

Hello everyone! I’m back today after all of the great news I had to share this week.  Back to work for me!!

I’m here today with the Muse Challenge #77.  The Muse this week is Marion Vagg.  Her card this week is so cute and simple.

Take a look at Marion Vagg Card:

IMG_2199Marion Vagg Card

I love her owl!  I do not own an owl stamp set, I look high and low, and my stash doesn’t contain an owl.  I couldn’t believe that.  I must get one.

So I went for my brand new stamp the Dragon from Sweet Stamp Shop.

Take a look:

Cute Dragon

Yes, isn’t this dragon the cutest little monster you ever saw!

Can you believe I colored him.  Yes, I took out my Copic Markers and sat and colored.  I need to do that more often.  It was so relaxing.  I need more colors too. I used BG49, Y19 and E37.

I colored my Stampin’ Up! rhinestones with a Copic Marker, Y19.  I wanted to use black enamel dots but ran out of them and I’m glad I did.  I think the yellow color looks so much better since its the same color of the dragons belly.

I thought I was done then, but realized I wanted to add and black frame around my dragon.  So I used my Copic Multi-Liner to create the boarder.

I wanted my card to be as CAS as possible so, I keep everything to the minimal.

What do you think?  I think my little dragon came out so cute!  Yes, you!!
