I'm playing along with Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog challenge and the January Bossy Scrapper challenge

and nothing like waiting until the very last minute. But I managed to bust out 3 Valentine's Day cards this morning using the following criteria for the Bossy Scrapper challenge:

3 photos...I substituted 3 hearts because they are cards
sequins
rubons
word stickers
gold foil or glitter
an arrow
ink
square alphabet

and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog Challenge was to use red and this is what I made:




That was fun and definitely put my in a Valentine's crafty kind of mood, so there will probably be more to come.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog Challenge

My daughter turned 14 this weekend and we celebrated with a party. Of course, when you have a party you have make thank you cards and so that is what I did today. The challenge this week was best friends and this is what I made...



I actually made 9 of them. All with the bff emoji stamp from Studio Calico and the sentiment embossed with gold glitter zing.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

I'm playing along this week with the create with critters challenge at Simon Says Stamp. And I love these Mama Elephant critters a whole, whole bunch! and even better, they ride a bike! I made an all the way through shaker card and filled it with colorful sequins. I hope the birthday girl likes it.



Thanks for stopping by!

Studio Calico Sunday Sketch 1.10

I finally got around to making a card for the Sunday Sketch challenge at Studio Calico. I loved how the original card had everything along the bottom of the card!

Here is the sketch:
And here is my take using two different stamp sets from Studio Calico and coloring the images with Copic Markers. I love that little girl from an Ashley G stamp that I bought a long time ago and found today when I was cleaning out my stamp drawer. A nice and flat card perfect for mailing...and I made 2 of them and used up a piece of colored card stock. My forever destashing project is getting rid of/using up colored card stock...I prefer white card stock for every thing!

Studio Calico Sunday Sketch 1.3

I'm playing along with the ever creative folks over at Studio Calico this week. The sketch is based on a card by Lisa Spangler and I love everything she does.

Here is the card sketch for the week.


And here is my take on the sketch using some paper from the Lisse Street card kit, the Twenty Sixteen stamp set by Jasmine Jones and the Merry and Bright stamp set by In A Creative Bubble. I have used both of these stamp sets a ton so they were definitely worth what I paid for them.


And a little close up.


I passed out the New Year's cards last week and I was short by about 10...so that is what I am doing this weekend.  I made 4 of these using the 4 sheets of this paper that I had. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Reverse Confetti SFYTT #32

I made a couple of Happy New Year's cards using the January Reverse Confetti sketch to add to my collection...and that would make 26 made and too many left to make so I better start thinking about Valentine's day cards for the peeps that didn't get one;)

Here is the sketch


And here is my take on them...I had to take the pics at work so they are not the best, but I gave the cards out today so it is what it is...

For this one I used the later alligator stamp set and coordinating dies and colored him with copic markers. Then I stuck him in a hole cut in some patterned paper and popped it all up with craft foam.


The next one I used the monkey business stamps and dies and colored that cute monkey with copic markers.


These cards and the others I have made so far have been given out to the staff at work. Tomorrow I am going to see how many more I would have to make for everyone to get one...and then have a marathon card making party of one this weekend.
