Bloggers Challenge #47

Happy Friday!!! This weeks Blogger's Challenge was a sketch challenge using the puppy card on page 21 of the Stampin Up Occassions Mini. The stamp set here is Friendship Blooms, I stamped the flower in Real Red on Very Vanilla cs, then I stamped it again and cut it out. I stamped the flower a 3rd time, but in Wild Wasabi and just cut out the little flower. The Wasabi flower is adhered to the middle of the 2nd Real Red flower and is then popped up on the torn Vanilla piece. There is a Red Rhinestone brad through the middle. The red DP is from the Summer Picnic pack, it's mounted on Basic Black cs. The card base is Wild Wasabi. The ribbons are Wild Wasabi Double Stitched ribbon and 1/4" Basic Black ribbon on the bottom. I stamped the swirls in Wild Wasabi along the side. Everything on this card is from Stampin Up!
This was a fun challenge, and the best part of it was that my 8 year old little guy was stampin' next me!! Here's his creation... He made this for his Big Brother who's birthday is in the winter (thus the snow flakes!). Thanks for stopping by, hope you have an amazing weekend!!

Bloggers Challenge #46

First of all I want to wish all you Mommy's out there a very, very Happy Mother's Day!!!! This weeks challenge was, what else...make a Mother's Day here's mine. Not only did I get my Challnge card done, but it is EARLY!!! Woo Hoo!! I actually had it done last night! Yeah, Go ME!! Ok enough of that...I love this card, I love these stamps and I love the paper!!!!! The stamp set is Garden of Life from Papertrey Ink. These flowers are so fun, I just love this set! The Design paper is from the Pink Patterns set, card stock colors are Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush, all from PTI. The pearls are random pearls I had laying around. I used the Dragon Fly stamp from the Pond Pals set by Sweet & Sassy stamps. I stamped him on Vellum (by Stampin' Up!) cut out the wings and then used pearls for the body. Not sure if you can see it, but there are also 3 larger pearls on the right side of the card, to give it a bit of balance. I hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend, and again, Happy Mother's Day!!

Bloggers Challenge #45

Last week's Bloggers Challenge was to make a Graduation card. Well I wasn't going to participate because I didn't have any Graduation stamps yet (yes, I say "yet" because I have to "Graduating" next month!). While cleaning up my "stuff" I found a couple of these DiplomaBella images from an image swap...what the heck! This is a very simple card. I used 2 Primas in place of the bouquet, and used some Spica glitter on the yellow sash & tassle. She is colored, very carefully, with Copics (I say "very carefully" because I am sure the image was stamped with a non-Copic friendly ink since I got it soooooo long ago :). This will not be my daughter's Grad card or announcements (yes, she insisted we make her announcements instead of ordering them :). Thanks for looking and I apologize for the tardiness and simplicity!! have a great week!!!
