Believer of true love

Image
Love the way this one turned out! This card is entered into the Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge #149. The sketch was so cool looking that as soon as I saw it the wheels in my head started turning. All the dsp, cs, stamps, border punch and heart dies are from Stampin' Up! Oh, and yes that is more of that fantastic Twitterpated dsp! My sentiment reads: "a believer or our true love".

Valentine

Image
Ok this card is my take on the CASEStudy Challenge #75. If you start with the PINK highlighted words first and read :
Valentine, you should be sending a wish to be absolutley certain.
Then read the YELLOW words:
Dearest, I love you.

It's another MOJO MONDAY Challenge #226. My friend Deb and I went over to our other friend Ann's house today to do a Stampin' Up! card class. When we got back to my house, Deb and I started playing with a decorative paper pack she had purchased recently. I loved all the greens and a couple of the papers were nothing but glittery butterflies. YIPPEE! So with a few products from Stampin' Up! I was able to throw together this design. For the embossing and die cutting I chose the NEW Textured Impressions Embossing Folders - Adorning Accents and the Edgelits Dies Adorning Accents. I've used Stampin' Up! cardstock too! The craft cut two matching butterflies and with Crystal Effects I adhered one body to the other. Then I folded up the wings to make it look like it just landed. I added Crystal Effects to the wings too add a little dimension. The sentiment is 2 stamps from the Loving Thoughts set. I punched two little hearts and tied some yellow and white dotted organ…

Just a reminder, my KIT OFFER is running out. So if you'd still like to preorder just e-mail me ASAP.
Here's my entry for the Christmas Card Challenge Week #9 to used your FAVORITE TECHNIQUE and for Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge of Cream, Blue and Brown. For my technique I chose embossing: heat as I hope you can see on the fir tree. I also embossed the die cut but it is a little difficult to see in the photos. As the Christmas Card Challenge says "WINTER or CHRISTMAS" themed I chose to give my card the snowy look by adding Stampin' Up! Frost White Shimmer Paint which I think shows up a little better in the photo below.
 Sugar Creek Hollow asked us to use Cream, Blue and Brown on our creations so... I used Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Pool Party and Island Indigo card stock. I stamped my Lovely As A Tree stamps in Marina Mist (bakground trees), Pear Pizzaz and Island Indigo on the large fir tree in the foreground. Added some double sided satin ribbon. A trio of the…

Inspiration for CR84FN #47 -- lt. pink, red, lt. blue.
My take on the challenge. I modeled the die cuts after the edge of the cake plate and pie edging. The ribbons on the hat pin example the ribbons ob the swing. The flower is for the bouquet.The beads, pearl and rhinestones pay homage to the brides jewelry.
Hope you will try out the color combo and if you do, don't forget to enter it into the challenge.

This card was created using the New Stampin' Up! set Take it to Heart which can be found in the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog  (pg. 14).The image was stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed using black ep. I Also used the NEW HEARTS FRAMELITS which can also be found in the mini (pg. 6). My sentiment was created using one the Modern Label Punch and the Modern Label stamp from the Tea Shoppe set (pg. 19 in the mini)which is in the KIT I am offering.

CR84FN46

Love One Another ---

This is the inspiration for CR84FN46 - Lt. Pink, Yellow and Neutral.

Below is my card. I chose to make a wedding card for a friend of ours who got married in Thailand in December 2011. I was waiting until after they returned from their honeymoon to ask what they needed/wanted as their wedding gift. This is what the groom, our friend, said to me, "We are abundantly blessed. We only need a beautiful card." Isn't that just the sweetest thing?! So here I am presenting you with Sanon & Veena's wedding card. I was presented, from my mom, a bag full of beautiful laces in yellow, pinks, light blue, and ecru. So what I used on my card is the lt. pink, lt. blue, pale yellow and some of the green satin ribbon that was also in the bag. I embossed the pink panel cardstock. Added some flower rhinestones and some glittery leaves.
I added a little loopy string of pearls to the flower.
My sentmient was a little diffcult to read in the above picture so here …

Guess Who Loves You

I received some goodies in the mail today and when I saw these flocked dsps I just had to match them up. It's not black and white stripes though, it's actually navy. I wanted some thing tailored and elegant. Hope you think I hit the nail on the head.

This is one of those, JFF cards. But I really like it!!!
Stampin' Up! White Confetti, Real Red cs
Stampin' Up! Artisitic Etchings, Creative Elements stamps
Stampin' Up! Rose Red Grosgrain Double Stitched ribbon
Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine

I stamped the Eiffel Tower in Staz-On onto the real red cardstock. Then I die cut the heart from the confetti white cs. I punched the little hearts from a piece of scrap cs and then used the scrap for a stencil to stencil hearts in Melon Mambo, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler ink. The harder I pressed the dauber the darker the heart. The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark on real red and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

MOJO MONDAY223

MOJO MONDAY == I really enjoyed playing with this sketch. I found these really fun dsps in my stach and decided to play around with the patterns and add some flowers made with the same dsps. I stamped my image and sentiment in Versa Mark then heat embossed in white. I added the branch by drawing a curvy line with my white Signo Gel pen. I love how the little eyes and smile are peeking out from under the pinked border. :O)

Sugar Creek Hollow

Image
This is my first time playing along with Sugar Creek Hollow. I have never had much success at making it vintage. So when I saw the challenge this week was to RE-PURPOSE PAPER TOWELS, TOILET PAPER OR COFFEE FILTERS, instead of buying some designer paper for your project to transform it and incorporate it into your vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project.
     For my vintage Christmas card I used a vintage looking paper napkin. I stained it with tea stain, added a piece of tea stained lacey ribbon, a couple of flowers I added some tea stain ink to as my embellishments. I stamped my sentiment from Stampin' Up! Christmas Classics stamp set and rubbed more tea stain ink into it, attached an anitque looking brad and called it all done! Hope you like it. I don't know how "vintage" it is in your eyes but I am pleased with the results.
