Happy Anniversary

Good Morning friends.  I am sharing an anniversary card I made for a couple at church.  I am linking it to The Flower Challenge - A Special Occasion.

I used the flowers from Gina K. Designs Stippled Flowers Bundle and colored them with Promarkers.  I then die cut them with the matching dies.  The sentiment is a Stampabilities stamp from Hobby Lobby.  The white panel is cut with MFT Diagonal Sentiment Strip Cover Up die.  These are mounted to a thick black card base.  The flowers are mounted with foam tape.  I added Wink of Stella clear glitter to the flowers - it shows up in the photo below.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

Warm Holiday Wishes

Hello friends.  I am sharing a Christmas card I made using Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch 502. I was so glad to see that Julee started Mojo Monday sketches again.  I always enjoyed playing with her fun sketches.

I used these cute MFT Sweet Holiday Penguins stamps and dies and colored them with Promarkers.  I die cut them and mounted them with foam tape.  The sentiment is from an older Inkadinkadoo stamp set (Warm Holiday Wishes), stamped on an MFT Stitched Circle die cut.  I colored in the stars with a yellow marker.  The green script paper and red/white dotted paper is from MFT Candy Land 6x6 pad and the red and green stripe paper is from an older DCWV Christmas Matstack.  All the papers are matted with black and I used an older SU punch for the scallop border.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday to You for the Flower Challenge

Hello friends.  I am sharing a card I made for a friend at church.  Her favorite color is purple.  I am linking it up to The Flower Challenge - Special Occasion.  This happens to be her 50th birthday and that is a special occasion. :)
I used the Floral Frame by Neat and Tangled along with the matching die.  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Promarkers.  I die cut the floral frame and the inner panel and a few extra flowers.  The sentiment is stamped with SU Elegant Eggplant ink and glued to the pattern paper, from my stash.  I mounted the frame with foam tape and added the extra flowers.  I think she will like this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

CAS for Seize the Birthday

Hello friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time our "Toppings Option" is to make it CAS (clean and simple).  Of course the only requirement is that it be for a birthday.  Hope to see you in our gallery.


For my card I stamped one of the flowers from Honey Bee Cosmos set  on a panel that I scored a half inch from each side.  I then colored it with Promarkers.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp It's Your Birthday.   I made a mask for the flower and splatter some yellow and tan DI (to match the flower) over the panel and then mounted it on a thick white card base and my card was done.  It is really clean and simple, and quick too.

Be sure to check out what the Design Team at Seize the Birthday created for your inspiration and I hope you will play along with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Christmas card for The Paper Players #416

Hello friends.  I made another Christmas card using the Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP416.
I love this cute Penny Black Snowy stamp and it has been around for a while but I just recently got it.  I stamped him, colored with Copics, and fussy cut him out.  I added a mixture of Flower Soft & Fun Flock to his hat brim and pom pom and then mounted him with foam tape.  The blue snowflake paper is from MFT Candyland 6x6 pad and the red and script paper is from MME Merry Little Christmas 6x6 pad.  I added thin black mats to the papers and didn't need a sentiment as I strategically placed the paper with Merry Christmas by Snowy's head.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Seize the Birthday - Foliage

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of foliage.  Remember it is an option and the only requirement is that it be for a birthday.
I used the leaves from Reverse Confetti Fall Foliage set.  After applying different Distress Inks to my paper I stamped them and then die cut them with the matching dies.  I also die cut birthday from the inked piece with Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday.  I stamped Happy using a Neat & Tangled stamp from Floral Frame.  I masked the stamp for just the Happy.  I free handed the word Fall, as the card is perfect for a fall birthday.  I adhered the leaves to the sentiment panel and mounted the panel and leaves with foam tape.  The kraft panel is embossed with a Tim Holtz Wood Grain EF.

Now check out all the cards by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  Lots of inspiration for you to get your cards done.  I hope to see you in our gallery.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
