Kristina Werner Color Challenge 53

Wow. Was this a challenge or what! I had such a hard time with this one. These are SO not my colors!! I love red but when mixed with all these primary colors.... Hmm... I started out wanting to use my PTI Bird Watching set. Then I changed my mind and switched to my SU! Circus Train set. Didn't like it and went back to the PTI Bird Watching set. Still not 100% sure I love the card but it's done so I am posting it and moving on. =)

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 6

Okay...two posts in one day. Here's my submission for the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. I used the new PTI Bird Watching set and paired it with SU! Short & Sweet for the heart background on the chocolate chip paper. I stamped the birds on cool caribbean paper with cool caribbean ink to give them more depth then gave them some rhinestone eyes.

So this is my submission for the color challenge. I used a couple different stamp sets...You're Tweet by My Cute Stamps and the new PTI Background Basics: Text Style, and of course my wood grain stamp! I'm just loving owls right now. They are so darn cute!! And this one really needed a little flower accent with a bit of bling! Well, I'm off to create my card for Dawn's color challenge so I'll be posting that later today.

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 5

Wow. I just love how this card turned out. It was my first chance to play with my new {Life} stamp set from Papertrey Ink so I was very excited! I love the Top Note Die so I decided to incorporate it. I used SU! Pixie Pink to stamp the flower images. I just stamped then stamped again for a lighter image without re-inking.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Mother's Day! Thanks for looking.

Kristina Werner Color Challenge 51

A very quick card & post....and down to the wire I might add...for my entry for the color challenge. I got my brand new Scattered Showers set in the mail the other day and just couldn't wait to play with it! I will have to break it out again when I have more time. We are taking on a big outdoor project this weekend of building a stone wall along the sidewalk. So needless to say, not much time for stamping!

Money Holder Birthday

Here's a birthday card I made for my nephew who will be turning eight in a few days. I ordered these Tim Holtz Journaling Tickets a couple weeks ago from Two Peas and knew right away I wanted to use one for this card. It was tough though because I am such a hoarder!! I have such a hard time using my stuff. I have literally had that Clips Assortment container for MONTHS and just broke the seal last night to use one on the card!! So so strange I know. Why do I buy all these things and never use them? I'll never know.

For Mother's Day I am giving my mom a decorated {which I haven't done that part yet} file folder full of cards that I have made for her to have on hand whenever she needs a card. Here is one of the cards I have made. I used this technique from Kristina Werner's Finally Friday video on the chipboard frame. I love the way it turned out. Pretty simple card but I have quite a few to make so I suppose they can't all be elaborate! HA. Have a great day!

Mother's Day Sketch Challenge

I am playing along in this sketch challenge this week for Mother's Day. I had so much fun making this card but I struggled at the same time. I tried some new techinques that didn't quite work out the way I thought they would. I had to cover up a few "holes" where my sewing machine decided to LOCK UP! and I had to pull the card out and start over. I thought I would never finish the card it is and I am pleased. I just love the Bloom and Grow collection of paper by My Minds Eye! Such a scrumptious collection of paper!! Can't get enough. And then the dreaded picture...they just never do my cards justice.

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 4

I was so happy to see another challenge! I kept it pretty simple but used quite a few things from my stash! I used a woodgrain stamp for the background. I got that idea from this card. Then I stamped another background stamp from Hero Arts called Houndstooth onto Chocolate Chip card stock and punched out 3 butterflies {hard to see in the picture} and embellished them with rhinestones. I also punched out a white butterfly and pressed it onto my Versamark pad then covered it with Heat & Stick powder, heated it up with my heat tool then applied Dazzling Diamonds and heated it again until set. So sparkly!! I Love It!! I adhered the ribbon and pompom trim, stamped the sentiment and all that was left to do was take the dreded picture! HA! I just hate that part.
