I got some time and wanted to post this fun card that I made for the Unity KOTM challenge. All the stamps are from the February KOTM (I think for 2009, but not sure). Here is a close up of the wings, they are very shimmery.
You can see the shimmer so much better in the close up shot. Have a fabulous day!
I am excited about the Make it Monday, so excited that I wanted to share here on Monday (crazy I know LOL). I made this cutie card for one of Izzy's fun friends. I haven't ever really been the best at this technique, but it was fun to do. I do want to try it with wider ribbon, it might look better.
Well it is Sunday evening and I am just now getting my card for the make it Monday PTI challenge uploaded. I adore these challenges. I got this one done right before I had to work on more Christmas decorating. The village is the next thing that needs to go up.
I seem to be a weekend stamper no of days. I adore getting my creative mojo on, so I am trying to carve out some more time. This card is for the Color Q challenge and the Celebrate the Occasions challenge. I used a bunch of distress inks on this water color paper, I used wild honey, ornage marmaliade, fire engine red and frayed burlap. I used the Mhendi Motif set from PTI and then spritzed with water. I really like the effect on watercolor paper, so that was a lot of fun.
For the celebrate the occasions challenge it was to make a thanksgiving card with a button. Of course Thanksgiving is over, so I went with a thank you card and added a scarlet jewel button for the darker red element.
Hopefully you will see me back again today, I would like to get some more cards done.
Where did December go? I can't even believe that Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is just around the corner. Here is the fun card for the PTI Blog Hop challenge this month. I was very insipred by the holiday picutre and really excited to use the fun pointsettia die that I got for my birthday. I used basic grey paper on this cutie. The bling was just the right touch for the center.
I found a new challenge blog and I am giving it a try called Celebrate the Occasion. This week it was to make a Fall card with a pumpkin. I was super inspired by Dawn's Gratitude set and decided to make a Gratitude Journal for all of the girls I work with. It will be a year in December and I wanted a way to thank them. Here is the cover Did you notice how the sentiment hung off the edge of the card? I also incorporated the CAS-ual Friday challenge a well. It was to have a piece off the card. This was a hard one for me, but hope you like it.
Well I must say that fall back is my favorite day! I love finding an extra hour. This morning, Izzy is singing at the church where she goes to pre shcool. I should be there and would love to be there, but Cece is upstairs sleeping LOL! So instead, I was able to finish up a card and get it posted here. I made this fun background with Modern Basics. I decided to whip up another one for make it mondays. It came together easily, which was a lot of fun. This is also for the Simon says button challenge.
I am so excited and I just have to come here and share :) I got 3 cards accepted into the latest Papercrafts Magazine. How amazing is that! Anyway, here is my latest card. It is for Papertreyink's Make it Monday challenge and also the Simon says button challenge. I couldn't resist that all those cutie buttons! For my background this time, I used a sentiment. Not traditional, but I think it turned out rather cool.
I just saw that the challenge this week at the Simon Says blog is to use buttons. Fortunately I had a project I have been working on to try and figure out. It is a spinner card inside the card. The buttons are tricky to see, but needed to make this beauty work. My girls are blessedly still sleeping so I had time to go up and finish this project. Here is the inside, do you see the buttons on the top and bottom of the straw? The hearts actually twirl and move. Isn't this fun? I got the idea from Split Coast Stampers.
I have another beauty for you, this is for the Make it Monday challenge from Papertreyink. I love making background paper from stamps. For this one I wanted to recreate some pattern paper I noticed at Archivers. Hopefully you enjoy.
