CYCI #109 - WPlus 9 Happy Birthday Wishes Card

Hello Everyone

Today's card for the Can You Case It? (#109) challenge is a colour combo!

I created this happy birthday wishes card using WPlus 9 stamps and dies along with Stampin' Up! card stock and DSP.  I kept the card very simple and let the sentiment be the focus of the card.

We would love to see your takes on the challenges over on the CYCI blog.  Please make sure you read the guidelines before playing along.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #330 - Flurry Friends

Hello Everyone

This week's Little Red Wagon Challenge #330 is "Furry Friends" :) Jan wanted to see some cute animal themed projects! :)  

This is the card I created for this challenge!  I LOVE how it turned out!! :)  I used five different distress inks on a watercolour cardstock and then sprayed water on it.  I blotted the water off after about 30 seconds to get the background look.  I got this technique by watching Nichol Spohr Magouirk as well as Kristina Werner videos.  They have done this technique a few times and I wanted to try it!  I then die cut the watercolour cardstock with Pretty Pink Posh's Exclusive rectangle scallop die and popped the framed part with some foam tape (another technique I got from Nichol).  I then coloured my Mama Elephant Playful Pup with similar Promarker markers as kind of paint splatters on his fur as he "rolled" around the wet watercolour background!  The sentiment I think is perfect for this 'PLAYFUL PUP'!!  And of course I added a few clear sequins to finish the card off!

CYCI #108 - WPlus 9 Hugs Cards

Hello Everyone and happy Sunday!!

Today I'm sharing a card I created for Can You Case It? Challenge #108.  The challenge this week is a card sketch.

I used the Happy Mail stamp set and coordinating dies for this card.My sky and grass were created using my distress inks and then spritzing the watercolour card stock with water.  I popped the image of the bear out by die-cutting a circle out of my background.  The HUGS sentiment is a die from Lawn Fawn.  I used a scalloped rectangle to frame my card.

We would love to see your takes on the challenges over on the CYCI blog.  Please make sure you read the guidelines before playing along.

This week's Little Red Wagon Challenge #329 is "Pop Of Colour!" :) I am hosing the challenge this week and wanted the girlfriends to use neutrals with a single other colour! 

I created these twelve note cards using a kit from Stampin' Up!. They were very easy to create.  I do love black and white with yellow.  These will be a great set to give as a gift or to use myself.

Sketch N Scrap February 15th 2016 Sketch - LOVE

Hello Everyone

I'm excited to be sharing this layout I created for a sketch I have designed for Sketch N Scrap!! 

I used some papers from my Amy Tangerine Stitched collection.  I kept this layout very simple because I wanted to focus on my two 3x4 photos.  I love Amy's papers.  They always work so well together.  My background paper I chose was perfect for the sketch in that it already had those bokehs in the top corner so I didn't need to add anything else these based on the sketch.







We would love to see your layouts and cards based on our sketches!
Hop on over and play along with us over at Sketch N Scrap.

Mama Elephant Playful Pups Valentine's Card

Hello Everyone!!

Today I'm sharing a couple cards I created as samples for Valentine's Cards I taught fifty one 5th Graders earlier this week!  The original is this one:


This sample is the same one the kids made using Michael's Recollection papers.  I also kept the colouring very basic without shading etc for the kids.




I think both cards turned out super cute!  The kids LOVED making them!! :) 
Happy Valentine's Day to you all!! :)  Hope you have a great weekend :)
