Hello, I’m back today with a card for you, yayyyy!!! I know you missed seeing a card in my last post, but I am more than the cards that I make, so there will be times when you will learn more about me! I hope that is ok with all of you.
Today’s card was made for CAS(E) this Sketch #77.
It took me two days to decide what I wanted my card to look like. I tried hearts, circles, and triangles but none of them were eye-catching to me. So I decided to go with stars. I love how it turned out.
I used Stampin’ Up! Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay Ink and Stampin’ Up! Simply Stars (which by the way is retiring on May 31st) to create my card.
I think the stars really stood out to me because I’m in such a good mood today. Today is the first Saturday in a very long time that I get to really play with all of my craft supplies and not feel guilty about it. Yayyyyy! I’m going to try to make a couple of cards that I’ve been dying to make. I’m also going to sit with my nieces and do some water-coloring! They love playing with me. I can’t wait, can you feel my excitement.
Ok, ok, I digress, back to my card, lol.
I rounded the corners of all three pieces of cards and adhered them together. I also added rhinestone to the stars for a little bling. I’m pleased with what I came up with and I hope it’s a great fit for the challenge.
Please let me know what you think.
I’m back again with another card for Less is More week 168 theme challenge. This weeks challenge is “Makes me smile”. It’s simply that…something that makes you smile.
I was surfing Pinterest and came across a card that made me smile so I decided to make my own version of the card. I used three stamp sets to create this card.
Take a look:
The sentiment and the colors on this card makes me happy. I hope it makes you happy as well.
Please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my card.
This week’s challenge technique is a one layer Shadow Stamping card for Less is More.
Shadow Stamping is stamping the an image twice without re-inking the stamp. You will see the stamp lighter the second time, which creates a shadow.
I used Stampin’ Up!’s Peachy Keen stamp set to create this effect.
Take a look:
I stamped the first heart with Crisp Cantaloupe ink, then without re-inking the stamp I stamped the heart again, giving the heart a shadow. I repeated those steps using the Bermuda Bay ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Celebrate stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added a rhinestone to finish the card off.
I am pleased with how my shadow stamping turned out.

For today’s card, I’m using my new favorite DSP by Stampin’ Up! It’s called Kaleidoscope DSP! I love this paper. Its so vibrant and full of shapes and patterns. I added a piece of ribbon and a cute button for dimension. I rounded the corners to bring everything together. I think it came out fabulous!
This card was quite easy to make.
1. The card stock measure 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2.
2. The DSP was cut at 4-1/4 x 3-1/4.
3. The Strawberry Slush CS measures 4-14 x 1/2.
4. I adhered the DSP to the bottom of the Neenah Solar White CS.
5. I then adhered the Strawberry Slush to to the top of the DSP.
6. I cut the Bermuda Bay triangle using the triangle punch. I also cut a 7 inch piece of basic black ribbon (retired).
7. I adhered the triangle down, then the ribbon, then the silver button that was threaded with whisper white bakers twine.
8. I stamped the Mama Elephant Bling sentiment using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
9. I rounded all of the corners.

I’m back again with another card with the watercolor look. I really love this look. I want to make more cards using the water color technique.
For this card I used different four different colors to pull of this look. The colors I used were Stampin’ Up’s Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.
Take a look:
I rounded the corners only on two sides of the card for balance. I added two orange sequins to give the card an additional color.
