Thank you card using Kate ABCs

I am on a roll tonight. I also made this card for a great friend who treated me to a Broadway Show earlier this week.

I love this image from Kate's ABCs. It is one of the main reasons I bought this cartridge.

Recipe: A2 standard landscape card cut using Kraft cardstock from Recollections (I seem to be addicted to using Kraft as my base lately). I made the background using Pink by Design Cloudy Day background stamp and Tumbled Glass distressed ink from Tim Holtz. I used Pearl glimmer mist on it as well. I cut the image at 3.75" and used leftover scraps from different companies to cut the image. I used my Skin White Copic to color white paper for the face, hands and legs. I used another Pink by Design stamp from a stamp of the month set for the sentiment. I used a border stamp from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose stamp set inked in So Saffron from Stampin Up and made a tag out of it. I used my Prismacolor pencils to make grass blades and put some distressed stickles in Forest Moss at the bottom for texture.

I am entering this card in two challenges: Celebrate the Occasion challenge #51 and Scrappy Mom's "Tag Your It" challenge.

Thank you for visiting!

Best Friends Cartridge

Hello All! I am proud to say this is my second  post in a week. I am keeping my promise, yay! I recently bought the Best Friends Imagine cartridge and wanted to play with it.

Recipe: A2 standard card cut the long way out of Kraft cardstock from Recollections. I cut the frame out at 5.5" and the Princess out at 4". I used a piece of patterned paper from a DCWV Christmas stack to fill in the frame. I punched a few butterflies using my Martha Stewart the butterfly punch. I put two buttons in the center of two flowers and a rhinestone in the middle of the blue flower. I used Crystal stickles on the tiara and the neck and hem of her dress. I did faux stitching with a white gel pen. Happy Birthday is from a Teeny Tiny Words stamp set.

I am pleased with the way this card turned out. I love my Imagine - it does all the work for you. I still love picking paper but sometimes it is so nice to just select an image then hit print & cut. I am entering this card in CardzTv "A Stitch In Time" Challenge 102. I think this card is a great fit for the challenge. Thanks for checking out my card! Have a great weekend!

MY Valentine's Day Card

Hello Blog World! I haven't posted in so long.  I've been traveling off and on for the military since December. I got back and had to take care of my personal life. I am now in a place to create again - I think. LOL! I made this Valentine's Day Card and wanted to share it:

Recipe: A2 standard card base using Stampin Up Regal Rose. Stampin Designer paper from last year.  Gina K's cardstock cut using Spellbinder's Nestabilities' Large Label. Stamp is Bildmalarna Tossa heart stamp and I colored it with Copics. I used my irock to give her earrings and put a few in the flower centers. I used my Martha Stewart confetti heart punch to decorate the inside of the card and for the heart on the front of the card. I used a dollar Michael's stamp for the inside sentiment and ribbon from my stash. I am entering this card in Celebrate The Occasion's Challenge #50.

Thank you for looking and I hope to start posting more now that I am back. Take care!
