CPS 143


Well after running around all day going to the dentist with kids and myself and dog to the groomer I finally got a card done.YEAH! I've been itching to use these angel images I got from C.C. Designs. I cut out the dress to give her some dimension and I just put the pop-ups on the bottom of her dress to make her look like she WAS wearing a dress. Then flower soft around her feet and stickles for her wings and rhinestone stickers for the bottom border.

Just Us Girls Color Challenge #8


Well this is my entry in the Just Us Girls color challenge and yes it is a challenge for me! I would never think to put light blue with orange and Terra cotta. You know what? It actually looks good together. LOL! That's what I like about a color challenge it forces me to step outside my box. Anyway all my papers and stamps are from PTI. The new terra cotta ink stays wet awhile so I was able to emboss it with the clear filigree embossing powder. My punches for my sentiment are from Stampin' Up. I hope you like it! Have a good one!

Color Throwdown #69

This is the first time I play in this challenge the colors are fun to work with and are so good for this Christmas card I created using PTI's Peaceful poinsettia stamp set. I used the little poinsettias to make my background paper. I then used the Spellbinders - Labels One and put my sentiment on with VersaMark and then used the clear embossing powder for it. I used the new Martha Stewart punch for my branches (lovin' that punch!)

Easel Card


Well I made my first easel card ever! That is the challenge over at the Secret crafters Saturday challenge. I couldn't find a good tutorial for one so I made my own after a little trial and error. They can be made any size just gotta get it to fold right LOL! My computer is so gosh darn slow!!! My card still measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 I just scored my 4 1/4 x 11 inch paper at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 so when it folds down its at a length of 5 1/2 so it still fits in a standard envelope. This is another digi image that I got from All That Scraps. My paper is last years Creative Memories x-mas paper. Have a good one!

Here is my take on the color challenge over at the Play Date Cafe that Julie mentioned I might want to give a try. Yes I'm always looking for something different to try!

All my papers and sentiment are from PTI. (Stamp is from Holiday Button Bits.) If your up for the challenge here is their link Have a good one!
