Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!  This week starts a new challenge over at StampNation.  We have been busy creating/sharing for the Birthday Bash Done class.  I decided to keep on making some birthday cards using the sketch challenge.

Here's a peek at my card..


Members can view the challenge HERE!

I created another card to post here on my blog using the sketch and some different supplies.


I cut some strips of card stock and glued them onto a piece of printer paper to create the background.  The Stained Glass Cover plate was cut using vellum.  I can see myself using this sketch over and over again.  It's a great one.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

You Make Me Smile

Hi everyone!  
Happy Saturday!  

I am sharing a card I made using the new Zen Garden Release by Catherine Pooler.  Have you been hopping along on the blog hops for the past 4 days?  So much amazing inspiration.  Click HERE to view my post for Day 4.

I used the Zen Feather and coordinating dies on my card today.


I started my card by cutting the fun triangle strip 8 times from white card stock.  I used each of the new ink colors and applied them to the die cut strips using the direct to paper technique.  I glued these onto a piece of white card stock that was die cut using the postage stamp dies from the Love is in the Air collection.

I then stamped and die cut the feather using Midnight ink.  I attached the feather using dimensional adhesive.  Stamped the sentiment and attached the twine to the bottom of the feather.





Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Zen Garden Blog Hop - Day 4 & Giveaway


Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Zen Garden Ink Release Blog Hop Day 4!  You should have arrived here from Josephine's blog.  If you started on my blog, the complete hop list is below.

My first two cards feature the amazing Stained Glass Cover plate!


I decided I only wanted to use a section of the die and the circle in the center was the perfect part to use on my Clean & Simple card.

I stared by sponging ink onto a piece of card stock in a circular pattern until I got the blend and enough of the paper colored to die cut the cover plate and have the "circle" all colored.  I used the template of another piece of card stock that was cut using the cover plate as a guide to adhere the little bits and pieces.  As you can see in the close-up below I adhered some of them using dimensional adhesive and some flat using liquid glue.



I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Love Grows stamp set onto black card stock and attached it to the center of the circle.  I added a few sequins and some black & white twine to finish off my card.


For this card I used part of the cover plate - that amazing center circle - as a stencil.  I placed the circle piece onto my card panel at the top corner and masked off all around the outside edge to ensure I only sponged on the inside of the circle.  I used all the new ink colors on this card in rainbow order.  The smile die was die cut using black card stock and the coordinating sentiment was stamped above.  Black & White twine finishes off this card.

My next card features the Faithful Flutterings stamp set.


I stamped the chevron in two different colors and then stamped the small butterfly from the Faithful Fluttering stamp set in the upper center of the chevron.  I love that you can see the chevron image through the wings.  I did create a set of these cards using different colors of ink.  

Here are the three I created!


Each one uses a different sentiment from the set.  These will be great to have on hand.


Comment to WIN!!!!

Before you go make sure you comment on each stop along the hop.  Catherine will randomly pick two winners on each blog hop day, who will each win a complete set of Zen Garden Inks or a $45 Gift Certificate if you already have the inks.

Time to hop along to the next stop on the hop which is the amazing Jenny Colacicco!  The complete blog hop list is below.

PTI Stripes Challenge

Hi everyone!  It's a busy day on my blog today.  Scroll down to see my post for Seize the Birthday and another post using the new Zen Garden Release.

Today's card is for Papertrey Ink's Anniversary Challenge - use stripes.


I used Watercolor Wonder to create my stripes and then Initial Sentiments: Birthday.  The ink colors are the new inks from Catherine Pooler.  I will link the colors below.

Here is another one using different colors and a different sentiment.


And another.  Might as well create a bunch while you have your supplies out, right?!


I am so happy to add these to my Birthday card stash!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
