Thank You So Very Much

Hello friends. Today I am sharing a card that was a special request by my brother who is pastor of Cowboy Fellowship Church.  He needed several special thank you cards.
I used 3 different stamp sets for my card.  The cowboy is from MFT Saddle Up & Celebrate, along with the matching dies.  The church, trees and clouds are from Lawn Fawn Happy Village stamps and matching dies.  The sentiment is from SU Butterfly Gala.  I colored the images with Copics.  The cowboy and the church are mounted with foam tape.  The trees, clouds and sentiment panel are glued on the main panel which is sponged with Distress Oxide inks and matted with brown card.  The card base is SU Crumb Cake.

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

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn

Happiest of Birthdays

Hello Friends.  Today I am sharing a preview of a new SU set and one of the new In-Colors, Rococo Rose.  This is my favorite of the new colors, and you know I love making floral cards.  
The stamp set is Floral Essence and it has the matching punch for this flower in a bundle.  I stamped the flower 4 times with Rococo Rose, sponged more ink in the middle, then punched them out and layered them.  The leaves are die cut in Wild Wasabi with a die from Wonderful Romance  (retiring).  The sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday (retiring), die cut and matted with the Layering Ovals dies.  The Whisper White panel is embossed with the Subtle EF. The DSP is from the new In-Color stack and the card base and mat are Rococo Rose CS.

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

Happy Stamping,

Somebunny Wishes You a Happy Birthday

Hello Friends.  It is Thursday and time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday.  This time Shirley would like us to use the "Toppings" option balloons on our birthday card.  We also have a new "Surprise Party Guest" for the next 2 months, Linda of Lin's Craft Corner, so be sure to check out all the cards made by Linda and our fabulous team.
For my card I used MFT Somebunny and the matching dies.  This is my fist time using this cute set and I think the bunnies are so adorable, unfortunately I checked the website and it is no longer available.    I colored the images with Promarkers, die cut them and added them with foam tape to a panel cut with a stitched rectangle die.  I stamped the grass with an old stamp I have and then sponged the clouds on before adding the images.  The flowers are just glued on and the balloons and bunny were added with foam tape.  The sentiment is from the same set.  The pink wood grain paper is from my stash and I think it is from a Recollections pad.  It is die cut with a scallop die from MFT Blueprints 20 set.

Be sure to check out all the great cards over at Seize the Birthday and I hope you will join in the fun.

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

Happy Birthday

Hello friends.  I am sharing a card I made for a friend's birthday.  I saw similar cards on Pinterest and I love the way the SU Delicate Lace Edgelits make a card so delicate and pretty.  
I die cut the edge of the white panel with the lace dies and then embossed it with SU Subtle EF and mounted it over a Wild Wasabi panel.  This was mounted to a Petal Pink card base.  The flower and leaves are from MFT Brilliant Blooms and colored with Copics.  I then die cut them with the matching dies and mounted the flower with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Inspirational Birthday set by My Sentiments Exactly, stamped on an oval cut with SU Layering Ovals and matted on Wild Wasabi scallop oval die cut from the same set.  The silver trim ribbon is also by SU.  I added 3 small rhinestones to finish my card.

I will link this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Happy Birthday, it is their 10th birthday.

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

Happy Anniversary for Mojo Sketch 516

I have an anniversary card I made for friends using Julie's Mojo Monday Sketch 516.

The pattern papers are from Parklane Tea Blossoms 12x12 pad I got during a recent shopping trip to JoAnn's.  The colors and prints are so pretty in this pad.  I will be using them again.  The sentiment is from a stamp I got on E-Bay.  I stamped it in Old Olive to match the scallop Old Olive mat.  The leaves in the paper are a similar shade.  This panel is mounted with foam tape.  I used Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose and matching dies for the flower.  I stamped the flower with Momento London Fog ink and sponged SU Blushing Bride ink over the petals.  I shaped them and offset the layers.  I colored the center with a yellow marker.  I also added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen over the flower center and the ends of the petals, and also over the sentiment.  It is so pretty and sparkly in person. 
 I tried to take a photo to show how it sparkles.  The colors are off but you can see the sparkle here. The leaves are from SU Painted Seasons as I thought they matched the leaves in the DSP.

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

Happy Stamping,

Seize the Birthday - Texture

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  We have a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of adding texture on our birthday project.  Remember it is an option and the only requirement is that it has to be for a birthday.
I used the SU Basket Weave EF to add texture to my white panel - love the texture this EF adds.
The flowers and leaves are from the Painted Seasons set that was only available during SU Sale-a-Bration.  I stamped the flowers in Mango Melody and added the center from Daisy Delight, stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  The leaves are stamped with Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment is from All That You Are.  The circle mat and card base are Mango Melody.  I mounted the flowers and the sentiment with foam tape.

Now you should check out all the great cards by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join in our fun challenge.

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