ModSquadChallenge – Get Your Animal Stamps Inky

The ModSquadChallenge for this week is to use animals on your project so I reached deep into my stash of older stamps and found this all too cute Sheriff Bear red rubber stamp. Not sure what company made him as he was a cling and no name so if anyone can identify him I would appreciate it. The sentiment was computer generated, the stars are from die cut Spellbinders and the patterned paper is an All About Boys DCWV stack that I’ve also had for years.

This card is for baby’s grandparents and I’m hoping they like it as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by for a peek.

Purple Pink Red Challenge

As You See It Challenge 217 Love is in the Air

My card today was going to be entered into the Just Us Girls Challenge #519 color week’s colors of Purple, Pink and Red however not sure if it’s our site or theirs but I cannot upload to their challenge. But all is not lost since the As You See It Challenge Challenge #217 “Love is in the Air” should work for this card. Fingers Crossed that it works. Anyway here are the details of my card: my striped background on the fun fold was made using Pretty Pink Posh’s striped stencil in distress inks on a light pink cardstock. The inside was stenciled in light pink with Pretty Pink Posh’s layered hearts stencil. The center die is Birch Press Designs Floating Hearts Die which I cut in the wild lilac and then again in hot pink, glittery purple and shiny red papers, the arrow is Penny Black’s sweet heart die set and the sentiment is from GKD’s Better With You stamp set. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Thinking of You

The Sisterhood of Crafters: Thinking Of You Challenge

Just under the deadline with this card for the challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters to include the prominent sentiment of “Thinking of You”. It was a snowy day at our home on Saturday so I was able to create some backgrounds using the Pretty Pink Posh Layered Hearts Stencil A&B. This stenciled background was created with mulled lavender Distress Oxide ink and the second stencil GKD’s Glitz Glitter Get in wild lilac. Sponged some wild lilac ink on the Spellbinders large classic ovals die mounted it with some foam tape and then double cut cupid’s arrow from Penny Black’s sweet heart dies set. The sentiment was an older wood mounted stamp with no company name on it. Maybe from the dollar section at a big box store.

Thanks for looking. Happy Sunday!

Busy Balloon Birthday

DRU Challenge #137 Birthdays
DoubleD Fun with Balloons Challenge

ModSquad Recipe Challenge

Seems like a lot of challenges are including balloons or birthday so my card today I believe fits all three of the linked challenges. I used a variety elements for this card. My background was stenciled with PrettyPinkPosh’s Layered Party stencils. This is two separate stencils to create the “A”balloon background which was sponged with a variety of Distress Oxide inks and the “B” banner stencil was created using Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste and GKD turquoise sea glitz glitter gel. The stamped part is the Mama Elephant little pup with the balloon bouquet stamp and die set and stamped sentiment is GKD’s Simple Numbers. Next up are the dies: Tim Holtz Sizzix celebrate word dies, Poppystamps Pinpoint Balloons for the tittle dot above the “i” and the Waffle Flower A2 Layers Die set. The interactive is a wobbler for the balloon bouquet.

Butterfly Banners

Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC222

My card today will be entered into the Sunday Stamps SSC222 “Have a Banner of a Time” sketch challenge.

My background was created from my all time favorite DCWV The Mariposa Stack patterned paper pack, the banners were created using Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder and the sentiment is a GKD Block Greetings stamp set. Both the block stamp and sentiment were heat embossed using Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder. The ends of the banners were punched using a Martha Stewart corner butterfly punch then trimmed down the banner. A gold cording completes this card.

I’ll be sending this one out as a sympathy card. Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome Baby

I was in the need of two baby cards so I pulled out my GKD Bundle of Love stamp set from the Journey of the Heart StampTV kit and created my pink girl and blue boy card. Baby Girl was already born but we are waiting on that little boy to make an appearance.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping in for a peek.

Xany's Two

Our youngest granddaughter is turning 2 on Monday. Alexandra or Xany as she was nicknamed by her dad is a little shy but I’m hoping this big bouquet of balloons will make her smile until we get to see her.

Stamp set is Gina K Designs Birthday Bash by Rupa Shevda, Cuttlebug embossing folder was inked with Hero Arts ombre ink pad, Poppystamps Pinpoint Balloons dies and Concord & 9th double cut numbers dies also used.

This card will be entered into the ModSquadChallenge – Birthday Balloons Challenge.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Recipe for Snowflakes

As You See It Challenge 216
JustUsGirls Word Week 517

Today’s card will be entered into two different challenge groups. The first challenge is the As You See It Challenge Recipe Challenge 216 to include snowflake, silver, sequins, dry embossing and an inspiring message.

I chose a Sizzix embossing folder from my stash that included a message area, the sentiment is from Maker’s Movement “You are a Unicorn” stamp and die set that I won on a Facebook question contest. Thanks Maker’s Movement. Snowflakes are SSS Sensational Snowflakes cut in various silver glitter cardstock. Sentiment was embossed Ranger silver embossing powder.

The second challenge is to include snowflakes on a card. Which makes this one card fit the bill for two challenges which is a first for me! This was very appropriate card since we woke up to a light covering of snow on grasses surfaces only. Now that’s my kind of snow.

Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by for a peek.

Enchanted Heart

Dies R Us DRU Challenge #136 – Anything Goes using a die from the store.

Today’s card is for the challenge at Dies R Us using a metal die and one that is carried by the store. The die on my card is a Memory Box “Enchanted Heart” die that I just purchased from Dies R Us. I’m loving it and will hopefully add Glorious Hearts die which according to the packaging work together. I die cut the heart 4 times, used Hero Arts Pink to Red ombre ink pad for the inlaid heart pieces, added some extra Martha Stewart heart border punch hearts to the card and stamped the sentiment from Gina K’s Lovely Ladybug stamp set by Beth Slaika. The top heart outline was sprayed with Hero Arts’ white iridescent shimmer spray.

Thanks for looking and another great challenge from the team at Dies R Us.
