Monochromatic Birthday (TSC0214)

The Twisted Sistahs Challenge for February 14th was to make a Monochromatic card in blues or greens with at least three layers and use a punch. I used the punch that corresponds to the Petite Petals set. I embossed the little flowers to give them more dimension. I used Pool Party, Soft Sky and white card stocks and Pool Party Ink for the flowers. I also used some SU! DSP with those colors along with some Pool Party ruffled ribbon. This card was added to the Favorites Forum on Splitcoast Stampers last Sunday. I'm so honored! Thanks for stopping by!

Join Me? (TSC0207)

This week's Twisted Sistahs Challenge was presented by Irishgreensue. Greenie asked us to make a card for a friend with a coffee theme. I used "Morning Cup" (SU) for the stamp set. I stamped the image on a die cut piece that I did some paper piercing on. I colored the images with markers. I used Washi tape for embellishment. The card stocks are white, Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana. Thanks for stopping by!!

Glittery Hearts (TSC0131)

I'm back! I've been busy with foster children and taking care of my mom. I finally found the time to make a card and get it posted. This one is for two challenges. First, the Twisted Sistahs Challenge is to use a heart or "Love" on a card. This has hearts! The challenge for the Stampin' Up! Late Night Stampers (Yahoo Group) is to use dies or Framelits. I used the Hearts and Brackets die. The small hearts were punched with the small heart punch. I used the Red Glitter Paper for those hearts. The dsp is from a DSP Tablet. The stamp set used is Wacky Wishes. Don't you love Clean and Simple cards!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

He's Making a List (TSC1004)

Sillyfilly presented last Friday's Twisted Sistahs Challenge, and she made it really easy. She just asked us to make our card a Christmas card. If you'd like to join us, just use TSC1004 in your key words. I used "Santa's List" single stamp and embossed with red EP. The sentiment was stamped with Real Red Ink and reads, "He's making a list and checking it twice." Inside, it says, "Hope you're nice!" Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Leaves (TSC0927)

Our Twisted Sistahs Challenge for September 27th was presented by Tater, and we were to have leaves on our cards. The leaves were supposed to be the focal point, too. I used up some of my retired stuff. I used the envelope liner die to line the envelope to match the card. I used dies that coordinated with the stamps for the leaves. Thanks for stopping by!

Inchie Legos (TSC0920)

Our Twisted Sistahs Challenge for September 20th was presented by JDfromPAUSA. Jill asked us to use inchies on our cards. I punched 3 one inch squares from the scrap CS and rounded the corners. Then, I punched four 3/8" circles for each square. I raised each circle up on a piece of a Dimensional. The whole "Lego" is popped up, too. Prior to adding the "Legos" I had scored the bottom of the card with 3 lines on the Score Board. Fun challenge! Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Happiness (TSC0913)

The Twisted Sistahs Challenge for September 13th was presented by Irishgreensue. Greenie asked us to follow a sketch. Since it was Friday the 13th, I thought a Halloween theme would be fun. The stamped panel is on an Action Wobble and the circle has an 18 year old sticker on it! Thanks for stopping by!

Festive Flurry (TSC0906)

The Twisted Sistahs Challenge for September 6th was to have SPARKLING snow on our cards. You can't SPARKLE mush more than Glimmer Paper. I'm going to try to post about once a week or whenever I make a new card. With the foster children keeping me running and my 98 year old mom to care for, I just don't seem to find the time to get online as much anymore. Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween 2013

I just made this card because I wanted to make a Halloween card. LOL! I also wanted to use an Action Wobble. I love those things. The Jack-o-lantern wiggles and wobbles if you flick it. The dp came from my stash and I don't know where I got it. The bat punch is from Martha Stewart, and everything else is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Wobbling Panda (TSC0830)

Heartsong47 presented the Twisted Sistas Challenge for August 30th. Jan asked us to either make a masculine card or a fall card. Believe it or not, this is my version of a masculine card. It's so cute when it wobbles!!! Thanks for stopping by!

Watercolor Bear (TSC0823)

Sillyfilly gave the challenge to the Twisted Sistahs for August 23rd. Silvia asked us to make a card using water coloring. I got out the old Water Color Wonder Crayons (retired) and Aqua Painter to paint my Popcorn Bear "Thanks a Bunch" image. I used the new Chevron Punch to accessorize the side area. Thanks for stopping by!

Back to School (TSC0816)

The challenge for the Twisted Sistahs for August 16th was to make a school themed card. I used punched apples and Greeting Card Kids for my school theme. Thanks for stopping by!

Something Old, Something New (TSC0802)

I finally made another card. My foster kids are just keeping me so busy! I'm also crocheting again, but the project is taking forever. I'll take a photo and post it when I get it done. As far as this card goes, it's for the Twisted Sistahs Challenge which was presented by JDfromPAUSA. Jill asked us to make a card using some of our old supplies that have been taking up space or an old stamp that has either never been used or not used in a long time. "Sincere Salutations" was the first set I bought from SU! I used the birthday greeting because this card will go to one of my grand daughters who asked me to give her another hand made card. I'm late though. I'm late for EVERYONE's birthday this year! I'm old and have too many grandchildren, I guess! LOL! Anyway, besides using an old stamp set, I also used some Cherry Blossom dp that has been around a while. I used the new Pansy Punch from SU! to punch out some flowers which I colored to look like the ones in the dp. Thanks for stopping by!!!

CASEing Shirt (TSC0712)

Yes, I'm very late for the Twisted Sistahs Challenge from July 12th, but I had everything ready to put together a week and a half ago but never found the time until today. The challenge was to CASE a friend. I CASEd WannaBcre8ive who we lovingly call "Shirt" (short for Shirley). She was so very kind to have three of us Twisted ones at her house for three days. What hospitality!! Anyway, I was inspired by this card. I didn't have that pretty EF and I left off the scalloped layer. I also used a die cut poinsettia instead of a stamped image and put the greeting inside. Thanks for stopping by!
