Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #280



I love the simplicity yet versatility of this challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.

There were so many things I could have done, but I chose this tea cup and pot
from a set I love from Fiskars. (I don't know the official name of the set, but I bought it from Michaels years ago.)

I colored the pot and cup with Copics. And to give the card a little more interest I  cut a base from a Sizzix die and embellished it with white enamel dots from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping by today!

SIP Challenge 91-Andrea's Birthday



The challenge this week over at Stamp, Ink, Papers is to create a birthday card in honor of A design team member's birthday. Easy enough!

I made my card with Close To My Heart's "Lovely Birthday" set. The inks used are:

Memento Bamboo Leaves
Memento Lilac Posies
Stampin' Up! Flirty Flamingo
Stampin' Up! Peakaboo Peach

The card stock is Stampin' Up!'s Old Olive.

What I really love about this card are the clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Because they're clear, they take on the color behind them. So in this case, it looks like I have three different color sequins when I only have one.

Well I hope Andrea had a great birthday yesterday! And I hope whiever gets this card will like it as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #314



What a cute challenge they have over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday this week. The two little tags at the top of the card make for such an interesting card. The extra challenge was to include baby animals, which I did, although they're pretty small.

I used a Hero Arts set called "Spring Hello" by Lia Griffith. Then used a variety of inks from Stampin' Up! and Memento until I found the look I wanted. The ribbon is from Michaels and the embossing folder is from Darice.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sunday Stamps 148 & Fab Friday 108


Having some leftover die cut and stamped pieces on my craft desk made the choice for this quite easy. It all started over at Fab Friday's Challenge 108 where you had to use the beautiful palette below. I just love the Peakaboo Peach with the Calypso Coral.



The second challenge this card is entered in is over at Sunday Stamps,
where the challenge is to use this sketch on the right.


Putting them bith together I came up with my card. The flowers are from My Favorite Things set called Bold Blossoms. The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti called Easter Blessings. I simply love this set because it contains four great Easter sentiments that can be paired with any Spring stamps you already have.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Fab Friday Challenge 108



I just love this color combo challenge over at Fab Friday 108. What a great combo for the first day of
Spring! I just got this new set of stamps and dies from My Favorite Things called Bold Blooms. When I saw this challenge I knew it would be a perfect fit!

The sentiment is called Wonderful Favorites from Stampin' Up! I've used this set for years. It makes family cards so much more special, as it did for my sister-in-law's birthday this week.
