MDS Challenges

I have been having so much fun following along with the challenges on Facebook with Simply My Digital Studio and MDS Monday challenges!!  I have gotten about 25 pages finished this month, at this rate I will finally be caught up and ahead for this year :).  The challenges always come with tutorials, videos and sketches to help you create some beautiful pages.  I am so glad I stumbled on to these groups!!!!

Karen Burniston's Uncle Sam Template Cards

When Karen Burnstion posted her Uncle Sam card, I knew I had to try to make one and luckily she posted the template on her website (Yay)!! At first cutting out all of those little pieces was not fun, but on the 2nd and 3rd one it got must easier. These just turned out so stinking cute that I had to share. Be sure to go to Karen Burnstion blog and see all the cute and amazing ideas!!

Father's Day Card

I just love Karen Burniston's Pop N Cuts!!!  I found this cute spinner card tutorial on her blog @ Karen Burniston and knew my husband, son and son-in-law would just love it!!!  I used the Circle Label base die, Tim Holtz's Old Jalopy Bigz Die and the flourish from the Hello Sizzlits set.  This just turned out so cute, can't wait for them to open it!!! 

I also made all 3 of them an Accordion Album for their desk at work, with last years Father's Day photo.  I just love this die.  Hope you all are having a wonderful week!!!

Textures of Nature

It's that time, another Release Week at FLOURISHES!!!  I can't wait to see what they have for us the month.  I always look forward to all the new releases, and start making my list for all the new stamps I want :).  This month's challenge is to create with the outdoorsy texture in mind.  I knew right away that I wanted to use Cherries and Peaches stamp set from Flourishes.  I just love this stamp set, and what a great way to thing about the outdoors than with the taste of sweet cherries and peaches.  I also used Tim Holtz's Woodgrain Embossing folder for a little more outdoorsy feel.  Using copic makers to color my cherries, some twine and pearls to finish off the card.  Be sure to stop by Flourishes site and see all the beautiful new stamps!  Happy Stamping All!!
