Crazy 4 Challenges, the challenge is to make a one-layer card. I made mine with heavy white card stock, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder and a diffuser. I sponged inside the oval and stamped the flowers from "Bordering on Romance". The sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" which has become my "Go To" set for sentiments lately. Everything except the card stock came from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!
"Thanks so Much" card which she uploaded three years ago, almost to the day. I didn't want to change a thing, so my changes are very subtle. I used different DSP. Mine is Beau Chateau. I also changed the colors very slightly. I used Crumb Cake (Kraft) for the base card and Chocolate Chip for all of the matting. The stamps used are "Pocket Silhouettes" (retiring June 1, 2012) and "Teeny Tiny Wishes" for the sentiment. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Paper Punch Addition. I used Baja Breeze for the base card with a layer of DSP that was embossed with Retro Circles (Tim Holtz/Sizzix). The lily pad is die cut using the Clear Circle Die and Garden Green card stock. Several SU! Punches were used to make the frog out of Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Blushing Bride, Whisper White and Basic Black. The water lily flower was made using Pretty In Pink and Shimmery White card stocks. The sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" and was die cut using the Bitty Banner Framelits. I used Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder and heat embossed the sentiment. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Mojo Monday Sketch in a long time. I decided to do this week's sketch using what we lovingly call "Da Man". This guy from the Wild Wild West set is so popular! I stamped him on some retired DSP with Black Stazon. The base card is Basic Black with a layer of Sahara Sand that has been embossed with the Stripes Impressions Folder. The horizontal strip was made with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch and I added a Vintage Brad. There's also some branches that I thought looked kind of like sage brush. Those were punched with a Martha Steward Punch. Everything is from Stampin' Up! except for the MS Punch. Thanks for stopping by!!

Tilly. This is VERY CAS. I used Naturals White for the base card which is 4-1/4" square when finished. The sentiment came from "Upsy Daisy" which is retiring. The flower from "Fabulous Florets" (my favorite set) was stamped twice with the new in-color, Primrose Petals. I cut one whole flower out and popped it up, then, I cut just the center petals and popped those up one the whole flower. I added Dazzling Details to the very center. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

"See Beyond" card. I changed colors, stamps, papers and the leaf embellishment. I also moved the sentiment to the circle and forgot to sponge the circle. I used Chocolate Chip Textured Card Stock, Pumpkin Pie card stock, Bashful Blue card stock, Naturals Ivory card stock and dp from DCWV. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon and the leaves are from Michael's. This is also for the Ways To Use It challenge which was to use complimentary colors. I used blue and orange. Thanks for stopping by!

There's Magic in the Air. It's a sketch challenge, and I think it's a great sketch, too. I'm designing for Paper Cupcakes now, at least for the next couple of months. Nina May creates all her own images which you can download from Paper Cupcakes. This one is called, "Sending Cheer Your Way". It's a cute design for spring. I used orange because I think it's bright and cheerful. See the sketch below.

"You Can't Catch Me!" card. I changed the stamps and papers but kept her layout. I used Hemp Twine instead of Baker's Twine, Metallic Ribbon instead of the blue ribbon and Vintage Brads instead of buttons. The dp I used is similar and was Christmas dp from SU! a year or two ago. It reminds me of the wallpaper you might find in a wild west saloon. The image is from the Wild Wild West set that many of us would like SU! to bring back. I colored the image with Copics which I need more practice with. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

"Simply Spring" card to CASE. I changed the stamps and slightly changed the colors using the pink mat instead of grey. My main image panel is a little smaller, too. Using the reverse masking technique, I sponged with Blushing Bride and Always Artichoke. I colored the flower stamp with Always Artichoke and Pretty In Pink Markers. After stamping, I colored in the flowers with the Pretty In Pink and added a little Perfect Plum and White Gel Pen to the centers. I used the retired "Embrace Life" stamp set. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

"Buttons and Fabric" card. I used DSP instead of fabric, changed the colors, stamps and size of the card. Also, she pinked the edge of her fabric and I made a scallop border on the DSP. I love every card this woman makes!! Everything here is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!
