Hi Everyone! Today over at Just Us Girlswe have a Trend that is really fun and rather simple! It’s the bleaching technique. I probably could have used a bit more bleach than I did but decided to play it safe before I ended up not liking it in the end. This leaf is one of those stamps that you have no idea where it came from but you love it just the same. I also made this card quite a while ago before I went on my new SU-Leaf rampage! LOL I am still not ready to put fall behind me yet! That is just a funny statement, as I sit here in Florida in 85 degree temps. LOL The sentiment is heat embossed and from Verve! Come check out the amazing cards from my team and guest-Claireand join us! Nanc’
Hello Friends, I am thrilled to be hosting the Mix it Up Monday Challenge over at Stamp TV. Thanks Karen for asking me! When I looked at the date that my challenge was going to go live and it was close to the Fourth of July,the fourth kind of stuck out in my mind. So, I though it would be fun to divide the focal point of my card for this challenge into fourths. I have two cards for this challenge as I was in the need for two thinking of you cards for both of my sisters.
The flower stamp and the sentiment is from Gina K designs, but sadly the set I chose to use (that is one of my favorites I might add) is no longer available, but it is called Hugs and Prayers. The background leaves are from the set called Flowers Bloom. The cardstock and Design Paper is also from Gina K. The scalloped border punch is from Stampin Up.
I colored the images with colored pencils. I thought I did and okay job until I saw the photos…don’t look to closely.
I am also linking up my first card up to Freshly Made Sketches. It just so happens that the card sketch is divided in Fourths as well! Love that! Please come on over to Stamp TV and join me, I have a lot of friends over there that our very talented and can’t wait to see what they do with this one! Nanc’
Hello Crafting Friends, Amongst my migraine today… I was determined to make a card and get it posted before night fall. Today’s card is a combination of three challenges: 1. This intriguing sketch over at Retro Sketches, 2. Casual Friday’s asked us to incorporate a heart in our design and 3. Over at Stamp TV they wanted a CAS card focusing on Pink for Breast Cancer awareness month. My mom had Breast Cancer and I knew I didn’t want to miss this opportunity! The stamps and sentiment are also from Stamp TV and were designed by Theresa Momber and the set is called Timeless Treasures. The DP is my Favorite of all time, and I still have a scrap or two left of it! The rest of the cardstock is a mixture of GinaK , SU, and CM. Added some ribbon and there you have it!
Thanks so much for your visit and enjoy your day or night!
What a day! A 3 mile walk on the beach, followed by shopping with my sister and Starbucks, and then more shopping with my hubby in the evening. I made out like a Banchy! (not sure if that is spelled right) 🙂 I have never gotten so many good deals in one day before! It was amazing! Fun Fun Fun!
Now onto the card that I have for you today, it’s for a new challenge I stumbled upon over at Random Acts of Creativity…the site belongs to the AMAZINGLY talented Iwona Palamountain aka “Chupa”. Although I didn’t know she had her own challenges, called Sketchbook Saturday Challenge, I have seen her work many, many times!! It’s drool worthy! Make sure you pop her a visit you won’t be disappointed! It also goes with a challenge over at Stamp TV…I know I am on that site a lot….what can I say… I love it! They asked us to make a card with either animals or bugs. I have had those 3 ladybugs colored for quite a long time, in fact so long that I do believe they had dust on them. LOL It was time they got used. I think the card works perfectly!
