Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Today's challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges is Chevron and the twist is to use ribbon.  I decided with the black chevron background and the ribbon is a bow I added.  The designer paper is called Park Bench by Fancy Pants.  I love the colors in this set.  The dies are poppies from Memory Box.

Two Paper Divas

They are at it again.  I am amazed at all the new clear stamp sets coming from Two Paper Divas.  One of my favorite stamp sets right now is the Jelly Jar Set.  I used it for today's card.
I stamped the image onto the designer paper (From Stampin Up) and then cut it out.  The pennant banner is by Memory Box and the border die is from MFT.

Design Team Day At Meljen's

Well I can't believe it is August already.  Summer has just flown buy.  Today I have decided to make a Christmas card using the Cozy Winter Raccoon image By Meljen's Designs .  I think he is just adorable all dressed up in his scarf and hat.

Christmas will be here before we know it and I want to have all my cards done before the holidays get here.

I colored the image with my copic markers and added a little Frosted Lace Stickles on the hat and pompom.  I then used a spellbinder die behind the image.  The Designer Papers are from Stampin Up.
Enjoy your day and don't forget that it is never too early to start your Christmas cards.

Meljen's Challenge #222

Today's challenge over at Meljen's Designs is Monochrome.  I decided to go with a simple Christmas card using Christmas Star Snowman and a little silver background to make it pop.  I also used some silver stickles around the snowman to give it a little dimension.  I used a silver embossing powder on the sentiment. 
Be sure and check out the rest of the great designs from the design team.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

It is hard to believe Summer is almost over and School starts next week.  The challenge today over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges is perfect for this time of year.   The challenge this week is to include a book, pencil, erase, notebook paper or something "School supply like" on your creation.  The twist is to leave lost of white space on your creation.

For my card I used the "Back to School" stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  This is such a great stamp set.  I stamped the books on a piece of white cardstock and then I cut them out.  I used the ruler stamp on the ribbon and the sentiment was perfect for this card.

Hope you enjoy the last bit of your summer.

Two Paper Divas

Sympathy cards are never very fun to make and I feel like the card just needs to be simple to convey your condolences.   Today made a sympathy card using Two Paper Divas Pretty Posies. I just love this set.  I stamped each of the flowers and the stem and cut them out. 
Pretty Posies
This is what my card turned out to be.
The embossed background is from Papertrey Ink as is the sentiment.

Check back because I have another darling stamp set from Two Paper Divas that I can't wait to use.  Perfect stamp set for the summer months.  Hope I have peaked your interest and you come back to check it out.

Meljens Designs Challenge #220

Today's challenge over at Meljen's Designs took some real thought on my part.  The Challenge is called Feature Presentation and to make a project from a movie you liked.  I have always been a fan of Walt Disney movies and the one I enjoyed recently was "Brother Bear".  It was such a fun upbeat movie and the music was so much fun.  Check it out if you haven't watched it.  You will find yourself singing right along with the upbeat music.

 The image I used for the card was Bear Butt. I figured he would be perfect for this challenge.  Be sure and check out what the design team came up with.  Inspiration is everywhere on this challenge.
