happy birthday, gorgeous

Hello again, my peeps! This is the final card I created for The Outlawz Challenges and I have to say (again) that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself! I’m playing in a couple new challenges that I’ve never played in before, and this card is for Sunday Songs and Rhymes Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Sherry West Art. The theme is about Raindrops, so I used the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You stamp set to create a one-layer card, colored with Prismacolor pencils.


I lived 45 years in Florida where it rains all the time, and to be quite honest, too much rain can be depressing. The hubs and I moved out to Colorado three years ago and it hardly ever rains here, so when it does rain, it’s wonderful! Funny how things change, lol! This was a quick and easy card.


There are no layers. I stamped the image and sentiments directly on the thick card base.


One more look… really love the simplicity of this card! It would be super easy to reproduce to make a set to gift to a friend. ;)


I’d love to enter this card into these additional challenges:

Happy birthday, gorgeous!

Hi everyone! It’s that time again! The first day of the month is always a busy one! We have a new challenge going on over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #28 – November Anything Goes! I love making sets of cards so I used a new Stampin’ Up stamp set to make these in assorted colors. So fun and easy – gotta love ‘assembly line fashion’ to speed things up!


I started by cutting the A2 card bases and layering white panels on different colors of cardstock. I stamped the image and sentiment on the front of each in black ink and then stamped the dress fill-in in ink matching the cardstock. I used a little sparkle overlay marker on the dresses to give them some shimmer. I stamped a cluster of tiny dots (stamp from a different set) around the sentiment in coordinating ink and added a few tiny clear rhinestones to finish the fronts. The final step was stamping a simple sentiment on the inside in black ink and clusters of tiny dots in the same coordinating ink.

Here are shots of the individual cards in the pretty colors. I’m totally smitten! ;)
