Flowers…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing with the Muse Challenge #76.  I missed it last week.  I created a card but didn’t get a chance to post it.  So I wanted to make sure I get this week’s card in.

This week’s Muse is Therese Calvird.  Take a look at her card.

friends

This challenge was a little difficult for me because I hardly create cards with flowers on it.  I have the hardest time placing the flowers or even building them.

I gave it a try this go round and I’m ok with the results.  I’m not in love with it but I think its a good start.

Take a look at my card:

Hey you are my favorite

I used Simon Says Stamp Favorite Flowers Stamp Set to create my flower bed.

I used Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise ink and Hero Arts Green Hills Shadow Ink.

I tried to make this card as simple as I could because I really don’t know how flowers should look on a card.

Please let me know what you think, good or bad.

Do You See Spots and Dots?

Hello everyone! I’m here today playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

wed-newchallenge-headerThis week the challenge is SPOTS AND DOTS!

This was a fun challenge to play with.  At first I wondered what in the world to do.  I wasn’t sure want to make that has spots and dots.

I pondered for a while.

Take a look at my card:

HB spots and dots

I looked at my stash, then remembered I needed to make a birthday card for someone special this coming Saturday so I decided to use my Simon Says Stamp Balloon dies.

Once I made that decision, I looked on Pinterest for some inspiration.  I immediately saw balloons with spots.  So I knew I would create spots on my balloon.

To do that, I use my Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil and Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste to create my white spots on my balloon.

To create my spots, I used my Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I added some Stampin’ Up! White Bakers Twine to bottom of my ballon and tied a bow.

For my sentiment, I wanted to add a pop of color so I decided on red, that surely would pop, lol.  I used Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Die Cut to create my sentiment.

So what do you think?

Let me know. I would love to hear from you.

Are You Enjoying Your Journey?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CAS(E) this sketch #85.  This week’s sketch is from N@Ali.  I love this sketch, its clean and simple.

 

CTS_85

Take a look at my card:

Enjoy the Journey 2

I love how this card turned out.  It has the CAS factors.  One focal point, one sentiment, little embellishments and a lot of white space!

I used my brand new Life’s Journey stamp set and Super Geotag die from Simon Says Stamp’s new release called This Is The Life.

I love this new set.  Life really is journey that we are on and we have no clue were we will end up.  There are times when we set our path and something happens that take of off that path.  Its up to you to get back on path no matter how hard it might, but we MUST enjoy the journey or it will not be worth it.

So what do you think?  Please let me know by leaving a comment below.

Who Do You Feel Strongly About?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Casology week 104.  The Cue Card is Pet!! I’m also linking this card to Addicted to Stamps and their challenge is CLEAN AND SIMPLE (CAS).

Week 104 - Pet

Addicted to Stamps

When I first saw the word I immediately thought of a pet animal.  I figured everyone would choose that so I decided to look up the meaning of the word “pet” to see what else it means.

I decided to go with pet as an adjective: to feel particularly strongly about someone or something.

Take a look at my card:

Love you with heartss

Nothing like a father’s love for his only daughter!

I decided to do a one layer card with a lot of white space, one focal point and a sentiment, CLEAN AND SIMPLE (CAS) at its best.

My Koala’s are from my new Sweet Stamp Shop Koala stamp set and my sentiment and hearts are from Lawn Fawn’s Love You Tons stamp set.

I used my Copic markers #B12, B14, #R20, R24 and C3.

I wanted to color with my Copic’s for practice.  I need to color more often. I want to master this skill.

 

This was my first card but I didn’t like how the sentiment “little sister” turned out but I wanted to share it with you.

Plus the belly is blue and not pink.

Love you little sister

What do you think?  Let me know!
