Happy St. Patrick’s Day

** 3/8/17 Top Pick at 4 Crafty Chicks! **

Hello there, my crafty friends! Happy Friday! This week sure was a blur but I’m not complaining… it means I can get my craft on! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Craft for the Craic and I’m excited to share my guest designer project for the Green and Glittery for St. Patrick’s Day challenge! Boy, do I have a treat for you, lol! That is, if you share my sense of humor! I’ve had this hilarious Maxine cartoon in my funnies stash forever, it seems, and it sure has come in handy for this challenge!

This card was super easy to create and sure is glittery! I glammed Maxine to the hilt with a couple layers of glitter paper and clear rhinestones! :)

I kept the inside simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.

Hi everyone! The March House of Cards challenge is live this morning and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for Make A Scene and/or Colors! Come on over and play – we’d love to see what you create! I absolutely love this inspiration photo! This just screams ‘Spring’ to me!

I created a friendship card using the mirror stamping technique. First time I’ve ever done this and I have to admit I was a little nervous, but love how it turned out! I would love to have been able to add some ducks floating in my pond but I didn’t have any duck stamps small enough. ;)

2017_02030001a

After stamping the trees, I sponged the sky using both shades of blue, some pink and some yellow, then the grass shoreline using two shades of green, and finally the pond the two shades of blue. I used all of the colors in the inspiration photo and added pink. :)

I kept the inside fairly simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.

hello, baby… (girl)

** 3/10/17 Top 3 at Fab ‘n’ Funky Challenges! **

Hi friends! Happy first day of March! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for March Anything Goes! I created a baby girl card using the awesome three-step ‘Baby Bear’ stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Love, love, love! :) A CAS design with minimal embellishments. The card base was cut with a fairly new Papertrey Ink die set.

2016_09250011a

I cut the image with a stitched oval die and layered it on foam for a little dimension. All four corners were embellished with rhinestones. The seam binding bow matches the cardstock.

2016_09250012a

I kept the inside very simple with just a stamped sentiment on a panel cut with a die from the same die set

I thought a gray, black, white and red color combo would be neat for this card. I used a double stitched oval die to cut the image which I mounted on thick foam for dimension. I hand cut two pointed flags and heat embossed a couple fun robot sentiments on the front.

2017_02050005a

I decorated in the inside with leftover strips of the cardstock used on the front, and stamped a sentiment from the same robot stamp set. I really love how this turned out!
