More purples

Hey! I also made this card today! I printed this digi and the used copic markers to make it pretty. I used stickler to add some sparkle. I matted the paper and sewed it to another mat and then adhered it to the car front. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the bottom part of the main mat. Again I of course used spellbinders, I can't seem to get enough of these things!!! I added a brad and layered a couple of flowers to pull this card together! Some of the challenges I have entered are:

Totally Stampalicious - love that name!!! For anything Goes!

Diva's by design - Let's celebrate!

A little stitching goes a long way.

Hi everyone. I decided to try to use up some of my scraps from an older K & Co paper line. I love the colours. I decided I wanted to add some sewing to this card to add some pop. The colours are very "gentle" so the black stitching adds some zing to the card! I made my own sentiments again using MS Word and some different fonts. I added a ribbon/bow to the side. I added 3 flowers, 3 brads to the centre and 3 bling to the top of the card to pull this all together. I also punched out the bottom central mat with a Martha Stewart punch, it just added some interest. Well there it is!

Challenges I have entered for this one:

Owl-ish

Hey, thanks for stopping by! I found this digi image awhile ago and I finally got to make something with it. I love this image!!! I embossed my blue paper in behind using a cuttlebug embossing folder. I like how the paper cracked just a bit! I layered that onto brown paper and then the card itself. I used spellbinders labels and cut out both my digi image and a blue frame. I stamped the for you. I attached some old ribbon I had which worked perfectly, along with some new buttons, colored twine, a brad, and some flowers to pull this all together! I think it turned out super!

Back to school

By the sea

Well It took a bit, but finally finished up this cute little card. I used the mermaid Tilda. She is so cute! I can't remember what paper line that is but I used a ton of it!!! I added some buttons and some colored twine, a brad, and some flowers and it all came together. I like the inside of the card too! I usually don't like easel cards, but this one is quite cute. What do you think!

Sketchy Challenge

Well have I been busy this week! I made this card for the sketchy challenge! I really like how it turned out. I have never done a template sketch before, so it was kind of fun! I love the spellbinders on this card. I sewed the paper in behind to the card. Ii also added some flowers, a brad, button, and small amount of bling to finish up this card! I just love it and it is in my favourite colour blue! I also submitted this to Sparkles Monthly Challenge too, as they were looking for nature - and Stamping for the weekend with pearls and swirls. As well, I love these blues and whites together, so why not do another entry at Wags 'n Whiskers, and Divas by design, and lastly Anything Goes at The Paper Shelter!!!!!!
Isn't this little owl so cute!!!!

It came together really fast! I like the layers of spellbinders, it worked out well! I really like the purple and dark brown together! I am submitting this card to the following challenges!

Lighthouse card

I made this card in about 10 minutes. We were heading out for a birthday and I got asked to make a quick card. I used a digi-image and just colored it in with regular pencil crayons. I used spellbinders and wa-la, it all came together quick! I'm submitting this card for the following challenges: Card Making Mama's - A new Challenge. Also with Sassy Cheryl's!

Another Girl Album

Hey I made this girl album for my friend Karen. I like the extra pockets at the bottom. I used a Martha Stewart for that punch, and it is the same punch used on the cover binding. I patch quilted the front to add some details with the sewing. I didn't want to put too many embellishments throughout the book, but still wanted to add a few little touches to each page. I will enter this into Simon's no rules this week. As well as The Paper Shelter, and Divas by design, Corrosive Challenge, Crafty Sentiments Designs, Whimsy Stamps Challenge, Yumi & Fumi Handmade (their first challenage), Crafting for all seasons!, and Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.

Baby card time.

For this stamping for the weekend challenge, you need to use the photo for inspiration in doing your project...so here is mine! I used spellbinders to create the layers and some really pretty ribbon from my stash. The stamp is from Just Rite. I also finished it up with some pearls along the side. Also added this for Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings challenge this week for bling and ribbon.

A cherry on top!

For Fashionable stamping Challenges this week, anything goes, so check out this card I made today! I love this stamp, but not sure where I got it. I used copics to color it in and added some stickler for the cherry on top and the centre of the flower. I used some spellbinders dies for this card as well. Also a few flowers and pearls from my stash and then it was done! Also check out Cute Card Thursday Challange keeping it clean and simple! Also check out the anything goes challenge blog which was looking for no squares! As well as The Stamping Boutique Challenge as anything goes this week as well as Wags 'n whiskers and Meljens Design Team who both want birthdays!!

Glimmer Spray, Metal, and words

Check out my entry for this weeks Simon says "What do you say?" I love a great adventure and enjoy scrapbooking!!! I used many items including Tim Holt dies, clips, metal, stickers, as well as the tattered time paper by DCWV and a Glimmer Chip from Tattered Angels. I also used Ranger Blue paint and sanded off the embossed areas.

For Lynda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 16 I find it funny I didn't spray the glimmer clips with glimmer mist, but used a Glimmer Spray on the gear so it would really stand out! (And since I just missed out on last weeks Challenge over at Lynda's place, I added the enamelled metal in behind :)
