at Lawn Fawn blog. The challenge is to make a Thank You Card, and send it to someone, so I made this card, and will mail it to my best friend from College. The sentiment stamp is from Lawn Fawn, of course (:-)) and tiny maple leaf is from their new halloween set. I luv this little stamp! It's so small but it became in handy, and I know I'll be using it often! :-) The sentiment is attached with pop up glue dots for a bit of dimention. I distressed the edges of the front panel and inside of the scalloped heart, with the mix of those distress inks I used for maple leaves. Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today! Hope you all had a great World Cardmaking day & weekend! :-)
at Hero Arts' blog. I luv this Hero arts stamps (sentiment also!). I used viva deco arts red pearl pen for beries, and misted gold smooch sprits over it. I adhered the sentiment with pop up glue dots to give a bit of dimention. Now I have another Christmas card done! :-) If I keep making cards for Christmas challenges on the blogs, I might be able to finish most of the cards before December! LOL!! :-) Thank you for stopping by my blog! Have a nice evening! :-)
I made this accordion card for the list mom of the birthday swap I belong. This swap took the sign up in December, and the swap started on Jan. 1, so, my birthday being on 12.31, I'm the last one of the list, the last one to receive, from all the members on this list, the end of the year. But when I signed up, she sent me the birthday card right away, in December. How nice of her! I even received a couple of cards from the members on the list too! So, not to mention she keeps this list, sending the reminder for next month's birthday every month, I thought I would make a card, not a regular 2 folded card, but looks like a little present instead :-) And this is what I made. I got the instruction here. The first picture shows you the inside of this little booklet. All stamps are from Fiskars. I luv wine, esp. RED wine, and that's the reason I bought this set :-) I colored with color pencils, inkpads (using the brush & a bit of water), used copics for shades, and Glossy accent on the wine bottle & glasses. I used Swirl punch on dp around the Grape, to match with the vine. I cut thin pieces from the same dp to make a design on the last page. I also used many tiny pearls on the front and the last page inside. I layered two die cuts using pop up glue dots on each layer, and ribboned through the bottom layer. I really like how it turned out. The base is rather easy to make but it took a while to make a design, to make a book which has a "Story", from the beginning to the end. I'm mailing this tomorrow to our list mom. I'm also submitting this to some challenges.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog today. Have a nice evening! :-)
I made this card for "Pop up card" swap in the yahoo group I belong to. I also saw this challenge at the Pixie Cottage. At Cute Card Thursday, they are also running "Animal Crackers" challenge. I'd been wanting to use this Stove stamp for a very very long time. I mean, I think I bought this stamp like 8 years ago, but never inked it before! lol!! Anyways, I found "chef Amanda" from House Mouse this summer. I knew I would be making a card with these stamps soon :-) Finally the right time came, and I made this card! :-) The Pop Up parts are Chef Amanda & the image of flour sack. You can see where I used the "stages" in my 2nd picture. The flour stamp is also an OLD CTMH stamp! ...like old as the stove stamp! LOL! The little cupcake in the middle is the center of sentiment stamp I found at Michaels ($1!). I stamped, colored and cut another mouse on the right. I colored the mouse image with a truffle, cut it from a larger stamp with 3 mice but I used only this mouse. I used color pencils, copics, paper piecing, perfect pearls, glaze pen... it is more shimmery in certain parts of this 'kitchen scene', in person. The sentiment stamp is from All Night Media . I used another dollar stamp for the front. I paperpieced the cupcakes and watercolored the cupcake stand. I found the pink CS with white dots heat embossed from my scraps. I used scallop circle nestabilities on this scrap. I used two dp from DCWV, cut them in triangle. Those yummy looking round embellishments are from my winning prize of Bingo game, from Peggie :-) It took a while to make this card but I enjoyed making it! :-)
Hope you all are having a great weekend. It's been a gloomy, cold weekend here...

Well, I made this card for Back to School theme Swap, being held at the yahoo group I belong to, and since no more back to school theme challenge, I decided to upload this card for Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Challenge and Catch The Bug Challenge. I used school themed DP, colored the mouse & books, cut it, adhered with pop up glue dots. This is my LAST back to school theme card this year. I think I made enough of this themed cards this year! lol!
Hope you all are having a WARMER day than here today! :-)
