Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Thank You

February 29, 2016

Wow, the end of February already!!! Time does fly and as each day passes we are closer to seeing butterflies…..okay so maybe I’m a little optimistic….  Today’s card is based on the color challenge from Pals Paper Arts and the sketch challenge from Create with Connie & Mary.  I used sponge daubers to color the butterflies and added (of course) Clear Wink of Stella to sparkle it up :-).

Thank you for stopping by today.

Stampin’ Up! FMS 225 Happy Birthday

February 28, 2016

Today I have another birthday card for you, this time using the Birthday Blooms Stamp set.  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #225.   I colored the flower with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush and drops from the ink refills of Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow.  When you color this way you can do it on regular paper.  It doesn’t pill at all and I think it looks great against the white background.  The Pool Party Glitter ribbon and the rhinestones add just the right amount of bling.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Stampin’ Up! SIP #36 Happy Birthday

February 27, 2016

Card Makers Choice is the challenge from Stamp Ink Paper using your favorite stamp set, ink, colors and paper.  Since yesterday was my good friend’s birthday, this challenge was pretty easy for me.  She loves purples and dragon flies so I used the Timeless Love and Awesomely Artistic stamp sets to create today’s card.  Of course have a made a card lately that I  didn’t use Wink of Stella glitter brush??  I think not  :-).  I love everything about this card and hope you like it too!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Stampin’ Up! GDP 024 Feel Better Soon

February 26, 2016

I’m always looking for a reason to do a shaker card and when I saw the case the designer challenge from the Global Design Project, I found the opportunity :-).  I cased the design of Michelle Last’s card, which is fantastic by the way.   I hadn’t used the Flower Shop Stamp in a while and thought it would make a cute shaker.  What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by today.

Stampin’ Up! PPA288 Thanks

February 23, 2016

I used the Suite Sayings and You’re So Lovely stamp sets for today’s card which is for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.  I used markers for the sentiment and added some rhinestones that were colored with markers.  It seems I am always in need of a thank you card and I like how this one turned out.

Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by today!
