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!

Take a look at my card:

Hello(Sorry about the photo, no natural lighting it is 1:26 in the am)

Edited to include this better photo at 6:30am

My card is pretty clean and simple.  I used there Stampin’ Up! colors to create my card, crisp cantaloupe, pistachio pudding and basic black.

The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! Hi There stamp set.

The scallops are from Papertrey Ink’s Ombre Builders stamp set.

1. I masked 1inch of space at the top of the card using the post-it tape.

2. I stamped my image 1/8 from the top and bottom of the post-it tape.

3. I removed the tape and added my sentiment.

4. I added rhinestones and WALA my card is done!!

All Smiles…..

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #172: Rainbow Medallions!

Dawn Mcvey showed us how to create beautiful rainbow medallions using the stamps we have in our stash!  It’s all about placement and different colors.Dawn McveyI’ve been thinking all day long about the different stamps I could use to create this great affect.  I couldn’t think of one.  When I arrived home, I had a big box waiting for me in my kitchen.  When I looked at the label it said Papertrey Ink.  I was so excited because I had a feeling about what it was!!

My new Papertrey Ink Market Kit Shakers + Sprinkles!!

Shakers and Sprinkles KitYes, yes, yes!  I’ve been waiting patiently for this order to come.  It’s been on back-order for a couple of months.  When I saw the half sunburst as a stamp, I knew I was going to use it for this in my Make It Monday project.

So without further a due, here is my card:

Smiles 2

I use four different colors to create this look.  I took Dawn’s advice by stamping the image by its opposite so that you don’t have to worry about lining them up next to each other.  This was really fun to do and it really allows you to look at your stamps differently.

The sentiment and the sunburst are from Papertrey Ink Make It Market Kit Shakers + Sprinkles.  This kit was such a hit on their site that it cause the site to crash back in May.  I’m sorry to tease those of you who didn’t get it, but it is sold out.

Now you know why I’m All Smiles!

What do you think?
