It's a Cookie Birthday

I made this card to have on hand for a young person's birthday and I used the sketch from Mojo Monday Challenge #360 as my insperation. I also entered my card in the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge #250, which was to use an animal.   The adorable puppy is from The Stamps of Life and she looks like my little dog Jazzie!  I colored her using Tea Dye Distress Ink and copic markers.  Then I die cut her out and used a wobbler to put on the back of the puppy so she moves and put her inside the card!  The background papers are free downloads that I printed out to make up the paw print background, then used a Spellbinder oval cut to make an opening for the puppy.  I cut out a bone that I trimed to resemble a dog bite.  I'm sure that the one who gets this card will have a fun birthday.

Robot Birthday

One of my Grandkids have a birthday coming up soon so I used the challenge at Technostamper, challenge TSSC #328, and it helped me make use of these Hero Art Stamps I have had forever! On a basic white card base I stamped the robots on a sand colored cardstock and then used my copic markers to color them. I backed the stamped images with steel grey cardstock and inked the edges. It's a simple but cute Birthday card for a younger one.

A Little Birdie Told Me . .

I'm entering my card into a color challange over at The Paper Players.  The colors are different for me but I rose to the challenge and made the following card.  The colors to be used were coral, honey, pink and grey.   I used the sketch challenge #208 at Try Stampin on Tuesday for the layout (although I was to late to enter my card in their challenge).  I think it turned out nice even though it's different.


I used my scalloped tag punch from SU to make the tags and the pink border is a Spellbinders die from Our Daily Bread.  The circle sentiment is from Birds Cards.  Paper used is from DCWV called The Old World Stack.  I love the texture of this paper.

Best Wishes/Make a Wish

I have two cards to post today.  The first one is for a challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges where the theme is 3D.  I made this card for my nephew's wedding and I love how it turned out.  This is the second one that I have made like this using a different color for the card base and as with all things, practice makes perfect, as this one came out much prettier.  The second card is for a color challenge at Paper Pals Art with Mary Fish using cantalope, blue and green.  The image is from Beasties which has terrific artwork, and the sentiment and candles are from the Stamps of Life.  Cute!

I made this card to submit to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  I needed an anniversary card and since I had this digi from Bugaboo Stamps, (the host for this weeks challenge) it was perfect for this card.  I have used this digi before and I love it, the sentiment is perfect.  I have had this paper pack for awhile now and it fit for the background papers for this card.

Wheeling By

This card is for an entry at Beckys Place.  I have had this image for a long time and didn't have a chance to use it until now.  I love this image and if I could get my knees to work this is how I think I would look if riding a bike!  I have used Beckys images before and I really like her work.  This made a cute summer card.  The credit for the coloring belongs to Becky as that is the way I got the original image.  Love it!  I am also entering it in a Fusion color challenge which was the use of yellow, green and blue, but it also fits the sketch portion of the challenge.

Two Card Challenges

Today's post is for three different challenges.  My first card is for the challenges at The Paper Players which was the use of buttons, and also at Crazy 4 Challenges, challenge #246, using multiple folds.  I recently purchased the Regal Framelets Die from Sizzix, and made my card using two cuts and then placing one in the reverse direction to make a gatefold card.  I used shades of blue for the card base, then added a SU Flower stamped with dark pink ink for the back side of the flip its.  I think it came out really nice.  My second card is for Mojo Monday, challenge #357.  I had clip art that worked out perfectly for this card.  I reduced the tint on the background paper and then printed out two coffee label clipart and then cut a cup out and layered it on two scalloped circels.  I think this one came out really cute for just a general hello card.
