I can't believe it's been two weeks since I've posted anything!! I've had ladies here to make gift cards and ladies here to make two cards as well, but I haven't had a chance to take photos and post. Well, I'm back with a card for the challenge over at "There's Magic in the Air." This challenge is to make an invitation to a party, any kind of party from baby shower to barbecue. Mine is an invitation to my annual July 4th barbecue and fireworks watching party. I used one of Nina's images which you can find over at Paper Cupcakes. This one is called "Flag Stamp with Flowers". The image was colored with Copics, cut out and matted on Red, White and Blue. The whole thing was adhered to a 4.25" X 5.5" white card stock. The back has all the info on where, why and when. Thanks for stopping by!!

The challenge for Paper Cup Cakes - There's Magic in the Air is to use "Mustache Cupcake" which is a Freebie Image and make a card that is male related. I have a friend who has a mustache, not a handlebar type, but he has one, and he's a dad, so I will give him this card for Father's Day. It would be nice to make a chocolate cupcake with caramel frosting, too!! I think the idea of making a mustache out of chocolate icing would be really cute! I'm on a diet, so don't tempt me! LOL! I used SU! Marina Mist for the base card and Cutie Pie Papers Raindrop Plaid for the next layer. I colored the cupcake image with Copics and die cut with Labels Two Nesties. The strips were made with the SU! Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch which I think look good on masculine cards. The sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" and the banner was die cut with SU! Framelits - Bitty Banners. Head on over to "There's Magic in the Air" and grab that freebie image and join us for this challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

I presented the Twisted Sistahs Challenge for this week. It was called, "It's Easy as 1, 2, 3." 1 (or more) Punch, 2 (or more) Nesties, and 3 (or more) buttons, brads or bows. There was a dessert option to use orange in any amount and anywhere on the card. I'm visiting with wannabcre8ive, irishgreensue, and 101 Airborne this weekend, so I'm in Illinois. We've been stamping in Shirley's craft room today. I made this card for the challenge. Since I was using all of Shirley's supplies, I have no idea what the card stocks and papers are called. The base card is orange with a layer of dp. One of the die cuts is also a dp. The Labels Two Nestie is white. I matched one of the dp's when I punched the leaves and used the same orange card stock as the base for the flowers. I used more than one punch, the two Nesties, three brown brads and there's lots of orange here. Thanks for stopping by!!

The Color Challenge on SCS is to use Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party with a dessert option to use twine. I didn't do the dessert on these little gift cards. I bought these little plastic boxes that hold the 3 X 3 cards and envelopes perfectly. I've only made six so far, but I think ten will fit. I'm going to stop at eight because that's how many 3 X 6 pieces you can get out of a 12 X 12 sheet of card stock. This is what I want to do for the next Card Makers group next week. I think I'll let them use various punches and stamps to make each one different though. (If they want to) I used Whisper White, Pool Party DSP, Certainly Celery for the leaves and Daffodil Delight for the flowers. The flowers were punched with the 4-petal punch from the Punch Pack and then embossed and a White Gel Pen dot was added to the centers. The sentiment was from "Just Believe" and was stamped with Pool Party ink. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

This is a card I made for my daughter's friend, Shane. He's 21 today! She wanted it to have a bottle on it since he can now legally drink. He's not much of a drinker, but it's legal for him to go to a club where they serve alcohol now. You know how it is when you're young; you can't wait to turn 21. I didn't have a stamp of a bottle, so I went online and found the whiskey bottle and the sign. The stamped sentiment is from "Celebrate Everything" which I think has been retired for a while. The card is 5-3/8" square. The base card is Chocolate Chip with a layer of DCWV Glitter Stack card stock. I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron for the matting. Thanks for stopping by!!!
