JUGS #308 - Happy Anniversary

I have another anniversary card for a couple at church.  I am always needing anniversary or birthday cards and I love making them.  I made this one using the sketch at JUGS Wild Card Week.
I used MFT Whip Cream and Tropical Teal CS.  The DSP is some older American Crafts I had in my stash.  The flowers are SU Birthday Blossoms.  I stamed them in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with my water brush and SU Pretty in Pink ink.  The leaves were colored with SU Pear Pizzazz ink.  I fussy cut them out and added a button to the centers.  They are mounted with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Just Rite Large Fancy Sentiments.  I cut the panel with SU Lots of Labels Framelits and added faux pen stitching. I fussy cut the mat and mounted it with foam tape.  I used a retired SU punch for the border on the panel under the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day. 
Happy Stamping,

Happy Anniversary

This is my second post today,  You can scroll down for my Christmas Card Challenge. (Thanks)
This is a card I made for a sweet couple at church.  I used Freshly Made Sketches #201 for my layout.
  The card base and all white is Coredinations Heavy White CS, Recollections Black for the mats and the DSP is from Pink Paislee Bella Rouge 6x6 pad.  The die cut heart is Cherry Lynn Design Two of Hearts die, mounted with foam tape.  The sentiment is from an Inie & Outie by My Sentiments Exactly.  I fussy cut the flag ends and mounted it with foam tape.  I added some pink rhinestones to some of the heart centers on the panel embossed with SU Happy Hearts EF.

I am also entering this at Verve's August Inspiration Challenge - Celebrate.  An anniversary is definitely worth celebrating.  I also used the pink & black colors for inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Seize the Birthday

Hello Friends, it is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of using weather elements on your card (sun, rain, clouds, etc.).  Of course, if you don't like the "Toppings" option, you can just make a birthday project.


For my card I used this adorable MFT PI Guess Who Loves You image.  I thought she looked like she was out in the bright sunshine with her shades on.  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copics.  Her pants & top are paper pieced.  I added SU Crystal Effects to her glasses, but it doesn't show up in the photo.  The DSP is from Echo Park Summer Bliss 6x6 pad, except the blue which is from a Colorbok pad from WalMart.  The clouds are sponged on with a Taylored Expression Cloud Border die and SU Bashful Blue ink.  The grass is cut with MFT Grassy Edges die in SU Pistachio Pudding.  I stamped the sentiment from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes (retired).  I added the MFT layered sun die (it must be discontinued as I couldn't find it on their web site).  I die cut it from SU So Saffron CS, inked the edges of the center and adhered it with foam tape.

Forgot to link up my card at Verve's Inspiration Challenge - Celebration.  This card was for my great-granddaughter's 12th birthday.  She is blonde and this cute image with her shades reminds me of her.

Now check out all the fabulous cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday for my daughter


I made this card for my daughter's birthday today.  She likes purple (and she liked the card too) so I used SU Blackberry Bliss ink and CS.  The DSP is from SU Moonlight Paper Stack (retired).  The flowers from SU Flower Shop and Petite Petals are stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and punched with the matching punches.  The leaves from Fabulous Florets (retired) is stamped in Old Olive ink on Pistachio Pudding CS and fussy cut.  I added a golden rhinestone to the centers and mounted them with foam tape.  The sentiment is from MFT Document It Bingo set.  The border is punched with a SU retired border punch.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Dream Big for Viva la Verve



This is my card using the August Viva la Verve, Week 1 sketch.  I used Coredinations Heavy White CS and DSP from Chickaniddy 6x6 Collection Pad.  The mats are Recollections Black CS.  I stamped the flower from Verve's Joyful Blooms twice and fussy cut the smaller one, colored with Copics and layered with foam tape.  The leaves are from Verve's Sunny Days and the sentiment is from Verve's Sparkly Dreams.  I hand cut the tag and added pen stitching around the edges.  The SU Pink Pirouette flag was cut with Verve's Flag It die set.  I fussy cut the mat and then added 3 pearls.

Christmas Card Challenges - Anything Goes

Good morning friends.  This week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is "Anything Goes".  I chose to make a center step card (I haven't made one in quite awhile).

I used SU Real Red CS and Recollection DSP.  The image from Flourishes Christmas Candles is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card.  I did a little coloring with Promarkers and cut it out with Lil' Inkers Stitched Rounded Rectangles.  The sentiment is from SU Contempo Christmas (retired) and punched with a retired SU punch.  The image panel and sentiment panel are mounted with foam tape.  I added 2 homemade enamel dots and my card was done.

Since I used red, lt.green, and darker green (in the leaves around the candle), I am going to enter this in the Merry Monday Christmas challenge.

Now check out all the fabulous creations by my teammates over at Christmas Card Chalenges.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
