Merry Monday #118

Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Lori challenges us to use Buttons and ribbon on our cards.

I usually don't like adding real buttons to my Christmas cards because they add extra bulk and that means more postage.  I pulled out my Sweet Buttons Embosslit to make my button.

I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

StampNation Beach Vacation Blog Hop



Hi everyone!  Today we are kicking off the StampNation Summer Beach Vacation event with a Blog Hop. Each of the StampNation Dream Team members, along with some of our crafty friends, are hopping along sharing cards inspired by our first challenge, "Beach Style", as well as a peek at our favorite projects from the event!

Here's my card for the first challenge:


I used the fun Joy Ride die from My Favorite Things to create my yellow car.  Love all the little details with this die.  The back seat is filled with items for the beach, beach ball, flip flops, sunscreen, towel, book, etc...  Is this what your car looks like when you head for the beach?  The "sand" is a piece of cork cut out using the Stitched Borders 1 Dies from Pretty Pink Posh.

Prizes!!!!

Merry Monday #117


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Deanne challenges us to use Sequins on our cards.
 

I used a stamp set (Silent Night- PTI) that I have had for a while but have only used the sentiments.  
I love the flourish that comes in the set but have never inked it up until now. 
 I don't know what I was waiting for?  :) 
The Raspberry Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish it off nicely, don't you think?

I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Happy Birthday!


Hi friends!  Popping in real quick this afternoon with a card for The Cutting Edge Challenge.  I love Karolyn's card below.


I really wanted to use my city scape die but decided to go in a different direction and use candles.  I added the color to each one by smooshing ink on my craft mat then spraying with water.  Used a paintbrush to apply the ink.  Very fun.

I am also adding this to Virginia View's Challenge & AAA Cards Game #10.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Merry Monday #116


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week LeAnne challenges us to use shades of green and white on our Christmas card.


I was drawn to the wood grain in the photo so I wanted to incorporate that onto my card.  I stamped Pear Pizzaz ink onto Pear Pizzaz cardstock for a slight contrast of green.  My sentiment from Papertrey Ink is stamped using Hero Arts silver shadow ink.  I am also using the sketch over at Lesley's The Challenge #10.


The charm takes the place of the banner in the sketch.  :)

   I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.
