SU image, copics, basic grey dp, bling CTMH

A couple of months ago my friend Patti  and I got together for a morning of stamping and catching up and she brought me a couple of images to color, well I ran across them this past week and I colored them up - I have no idea what kind of flower this is but I made it red!!!  This may be the card I send to my chemo buddy that is graduating - love the sentiment.  Trying to use up some of my stash of papers vs. buying more - Good Luck with That right???

July 20, 2014 Happy Banner

Designer Papers The Paper Loft, Stamp/die cut MFT, Balloon dies Paper Smooches, twine and pink cs from my stash

I finally cashed in my gift certificate from Simon Says and I got some fun new "stuff" including this darling MFT girl which comes with her own die.  I love to paper piece so I colored her with copics and then paper pieced her outfit and hair bow.  Love how the designer papers from The Paper Loft  go together so nicely and I thought this selection from Truly Scrumptious was perfect for this card.  What fun this card was to make following Saturday Sketch (well almost).  I have two happy occasions to send tomorrow, one is to my chemo buddy who has graduated so I thought this image would be perfect - and then there was a special request for birthday cards for a sweet little girl so I am thinking this one will go to the little girl and I will work up another one for my graduation chemo buddy.  Challenges:

     Sketch Saturday - sketch
     Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
     Scrappers Delight - cute and girly

July 15, 2014 Evening in Paris

Design Papers from The paper Loft, stamped college Hero Arts, bling from Michaels, copics, Inktense pencils, distress inks

I am a guest designer this month for The Paper Loft and oh my their papers are just yummy.  I had some leftover scraps of Shades of Gray and I thought that set the scene for this ladies evening in Paris.  Colored her and then cut just the beautiful lady out so I could pop her up on the college, then distressed the rest of the college.  I had this cute Eiffel Tower bling that I had gotten at Michaels the last time I went shopping and I knew it was the perfect bling for this card.  I think I already know who is going to get this card for her birthday.  Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday  - follow sketch   
     Charisma Cardz Challenge - anything goes

July 13, 2014 Anniversary Card

All supplies except thread and flower are from The Paper Loft

I can't believe I am way ahead with my anniversary card for my dear husband, now he never looks at my blog so no fear that he will see it early.  I did a sunburst card using pattern 12 x 12 papers and accessory sheet from The Paper Loft.  I love how all of the papers and the sentiment just "go together" like WE do!!!  This card is masculine with just a touch of bling.  I have been seeing so many card designers use the loose thread just looped or layed under the edge of their image and thought I would give it a try.  I used black/silver embroidery thread separated into 4 strands and just worked with it a bit.  Fun and I know I will try this again with fine twine etc.  
     Challenges:
          Sister Act Card Challenge - anything goes
          Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
          Sweet Pea Stampers - for a man
          Wags and Whiskers - anything goes

July 7, 2014 Dinosaur Card


All DP from the Paper Loft, ivory CS Gina K

I won the June challenge over at The Paper Loft recently and will be guest designer for July - they have beautiful 12 x 12 papers double sided and great accessory sheets to go with the designer papers.  I make a lot of kids cards for my chemo angels and when I saw this as part of the Funkysaurus line I knew it would work up great.  I made several of these slide up cards for 4th of July and decided to make one for my new little guy who loves dinosaurus.  I already had a dinosaur color book and a new pack of colors to send with this great interactive card.

I made several of these type of 4th of July cards because 1st they were just so easy and 2nd they were so cute!!!  I found the instructions on a blog by Julie Davison, she has so many cute cards and folds.  this is the easiest pull out card that I have made and when I went searching I found my 4th of July paper pad from Doodlebug design that I had "hoarded".  Enjoy and hope everyone has a Happy 4th.

July 1, 2014 Happy 4th of July

Stamps by AMuse sentiment by TAC, inks AMuse, bling from stash


I had so much fun with my 4th of July cards this year - I did two types - and they were both fun.  I would like to take credit for this but I "case"d it from a fellow AMuse consultant Seleise and did it up in red/white/and blue and loved how it turned out.  So easy but this is just one of the things I love about AMuse stamps, amazing finished products easy easy.
