Hello Card

My card today uses a free image from called vintage slip.  I colored the image using copic markers, used a classic circle die from Spellbinders to cut out the image and used vitage photo to shade the edges.  I placed it on a black background which makes the image pop.  Very Girly.  I entered this card at the challenge at the Creative Card Crew blog (challenge number 60 - Girly).  I am also entering it at the Simon Says Make it Wednesday challenge which is anything goes, and last at Freshly Made Sketches #134.  Whew!

A Foxy Anniversary

My neice has an anniversary in  a couple of months and they had used foxes on their wedding invitations, so I thought I would follow that up with foxes on their 1st year anniversary card. I know I made the card early, but when I saw the Mojo Monday Challenge #343 (a tall and skinny card) I knew it would be the perfect sketch for my card. 
I also put it in the Simon Says Stamp Blog Challenge for patterned paper.

Flying By

I made this card to enter in the Casual Friday Challenge which was using items in three's  I used the butterfly embossing folder by Darcie.  I inked the bottom portion with three colors of blue ink then added a little yellow and pink to add a little more color.  Using Stamin Up's two butterfly punches I punched out three butterfles to go over the embossed images.  The sentiment is from Birds Cards.

Make a Wish

This card is for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches #133.  I used the Martha Stewart Circle Maker in the diamond pattern for the circle, cut it in half, then put the other half on the inside of my card.

A Birthday Card Mojo Challenge

For the Mojo Monday Challenge I made a Birthday Card. 


I used the curved edger Spellbinders die for the border edge and sewed white embroidery thread to accent the edges.  I used pop dots to lift the sentiment square and also to pop up the cupcake.

Anniversary Card

I needed an anniversary card and the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches #132 fit the bill!  It's a very simple sketch but that makes it pretty and gives it so many options.  I know my neice will love the card.


I used SU Whisper White and Very Red Card Stock and the heart die cut is
QuicKutz Heart Doily.The sentiment stamp is a generic stamp from Michaels. 
I did a second one in pink that turned out just as pretty.

Happy 200th to the PPA!

The Pals Paper Artist Challenge group has reached 200 challenges.  Woo Hoo! The card I made is done in shades of Purple.  The stamp is from the Apothecary Art Stamp set and die cut with the Apothecary die set.  The ink I used was Petal from Close to My Heart.  This was a fun card to make.

Mojo Monday


My card today is for the challenge at Mojo Monday.  As you can see I embossed the background, added a couple of borders (which I didn't get straight) and then the rest is very straightforward.

It's a Bunny Day

This card worked for the following challenges -  Crazy 4 Challenges (get your egg on), Tuesday Morning Sketches #244 (with a rainy day twist), and a Easter Card challenge at Simon Says and also at the Crafters Cafe #58 Spring.  I ended up making the card bigger, so it's 9 x 41/2 to allow for the three boxes.  This is what I came up with.
