There's Pop N Cuts In Those Cards!

I have just been having so much fun with the Pop N Cuts from Sizzix, created by Karen Burniston.  Be sure to visit her blog for so many wonderful ideas and videos.  I had create 1 spinner card for one of my grandsons and decided I better make another.  My son will have a birthday next month and choose to try and make one I had seen on Karen's blog.  These both turned out so cute and I am so excited to see their faces when they open them.  Make sure to check out Karen's blog and videos for all her great ideas!!!  Happy Stamping everyone.

Timeless Tuesday Challenge #205

Good morning all, hope you are having a wonderful day!  The Timeless Tuesday Challenge at Flourishes is to create a vintage card.  I choose to you the Stampin Up Forever Young stamp, as it just reminds me of my childhood.  I so loved to swing and thought it would be perfect.  I used the Bo Bunny Howdy Doody stack that was include in one of the 1 2 3 Kits from Flourishes, as well as the lace and pearls.  I cut the butterflies from the Stampin Up die.  To create the the look of wainscot look I scored the paper at 1/2 marks and spritz the paper with the Tattered Angel Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist.  The mist and torn edges really gave it the look of old worn wallpaper.  Hope you all enjoy the rest of the week and remember Keep Stamping!!

Timeless Tuesday Challenge # 204

Good morning all, hope you all are having a wonderful day!!  The Timeless Challenge at Flourishes is to use fishtails, pearls and circles.  I have been working on Valentine's Cards and choose that as my theme.  I used Paper Studio's Tiny Hearts embossing folder, Spellbinders scalloped hearts, scalloped circles, circles and pennants diecuts to create the card.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.  This really turned out pretty and was so easy to make.  Have a great week everyone!!

Timeless Tuesday Challenge #203

Hello Flourishes friends, today's challenge is being hosted by Broni.  Today challenge is to used colors from the poppy family, emerald family and rich brown family.  These are not colors I would normal put together so it was a challenge for me!  I saw a card on Pinterest from Karen's Kraft Room and wanted to use the design in the colors for the challenge.   The stamps are both Stampin Up stamps, Cuttlebug heart embossing folder and Stampin Up butterfly diecut.  Stamped both stamps with Poppy Red.  It turned out quite nice and I really like the look of the colors!  Hope you all have a wonderful week.

SNSSC15 Challenge (Sparkle and Sprinkle)

The January challenge over at Sparkle and Sprinkle is to create a card using the above sketch.  I love challenges with a sketch to following.  I had this beautiful digi stamp sitting on my desk for several months and decided to use it for this challenge.  I colored the stamp with copic markers and used Sparkle and Sprinkle semi-trans Sparkling Snow glitter to highlight the butterfly and flowers.  I am very pleased with the way it turned out.  I found Sparkle and Sprinkle glitter at their booth at Scrapbook Expo and have been in love with all of their glitters!! Be sure to check their website for all the amazing products!!

Love Letter Challenge

  It time for The Love Letters Challenge from Flourishes, and it is all about love! It is also Release Week can't wait to see what they have in store for us!!! I have made 2 cards for this challenge, the 1st using the Botanical Bookplates from Flourishes and the Love stamp from Stampin Up. Colored the stamp with copic markers and used the Bookplate diecut from Flourishes to cut out the tag. It really turned out nice. The 2nd card was made using the Stampin Up Owl Punch, this is such a cute little punch (just love it). Cut out little hearts for balloons using my circut. Hope you all are having a great week and be sure to check out Flourishes site for all the Release Week surprises!!


Happy New Year

Now that the holidays are over I can get back to my paper crafting! I have been so busy with the holidays, grandchildren and children home for 2 weeks that I have not posted in almost a month. Wanted to share the finally 2 cards of the year! I used Karen Burniston's Pop N Cuts to make both cards. The first one I made was a twist cube Christmas card for my daughter with the grandbabies picture on it. She just loved it!!! The 2nd card was a Happy New Year card.  I saw a card on the Sizzix Blog, and I just had to try and make! I love the Pop N Cuts the cards are just so cute!! Hope you all are enjoying the start of 2013, there are lots of new challenges, back to my crafting!!!!
