Fall is in the Air

Hello, Okay fall really isn't in the air here in Iowa, that is just wishful thinking on my part. LOL  But for some reason I felt like making a harvest card.  I used the Freshly Made Sketch #45 this was such a fun sketch and a great way to use up scraps.   Not sure if you can see it in the picture but I stamped the sentiment in the lower right hand corner in black, should have used some craft ink or chalk ink instead.  But overall I really like how it turned out.  Thanks for looking. :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps:Happy Blessings-Stampin Up, Sentiment-Studio G
Ink: Tuxedo Black-Memento, Various Markers
Cardstock: Red, Green- The Paper Studio, Whisper White-Stampin Up

Get Well!

Hello, Get well cards are another card that I don't make often, but my Mom put in a request for some.  I used a sketch from the Paper Crafts Card Sketches for Paper Crafters.  It is a great book with lots of idea's in it.  This card came together fast. I stamped the water bottle and colored it in with markers, glittered the red heart and cut it out than popped it up on a pop dot.  I wrapped the ribbon around it, but not sure i like how it looks.  I think it is my bow, need to work on them some. :)  Thanks for looking.

Card Sketches for Paper CraftersThis is the book I used for the sketch.

2 Challenges in One.

Hello, I was actually able to do 2 challenges on this card.  The first challenge was making a wedding card.  It was Beverly's turn to pick the challenge and that is what she picked.  The second was the Freshly Made Sketch #42. It was fun to combine both challenges.  I usually always start out my cards with a sketch, I just work better starting that way.  How do you decide to start your cards?  This card came together pretty quick, I used Glaze pens on the window and lights on the car.  I wanted to use Paper Glaze on the window but since I hadn't used it in a while it wasn't  working right and I had to throw it out.  I will have to pick some more up when I am out and about.  Anyway, thanks Beverly for a great challenge and FMS for another great sketch.  Thanks for looking.

Here is a card that I made using a image that was sent to by my friend Lisa (thanks Lisa).  I used Freshly Made Sketches #40, they have the best sketches. I colored the image with markers and used ovals to layer it. I had a hard time with the ovals as I didn't have a good set for layering.  But I like the overall look of the card.  :)  Thanks for looking.

Something cool

Hello, I am finally getting my challenge card posted.  Took me awhile but here it is.  It was Becki's turn to come up with a challenge for us and she decided that since it has been so hot out that we should do something that had to do with a drink or water.  Well after a search through all my stamps I found that I have absolutely nothing that related to either drinking or water. I will have to remedy that. :)  Any who, I had to raid my Daughter Kaitlyn's stamps.  I found a seahorse to use.  This card came together very easy.  I  colored the horse with colored pencils and added Stickles to the bubbles.  I also used a goolie eye just to add some fun. I embossed the blue card stock with the bubble embossing folder to make it looked like water.

I didn't have a good sentiment to go with it so I left one off.  I figured it would make a good kids card.

Our next challenge is to make a wedding card. Already have idea's going on in my head. :)  Thanks for looking.

Supplies used:
Ink: Tuxedo Black-Momento
Paper: Yellow-Die Cuts With A View,  Blue-The Paper Studio
Extras: Prisma Colored Pencils, Yellow Ribbon, Stickles-Waterfall, Googlie Eye, Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Party Hats.

Hello, this card came together really quick.  I saw a similar card here and thought it would make a cute kids card.  I stamped the flags and cut them out and used pop dots to pop them up.  I put a button in tip of the triangle so that they would look like party hats.  I used my new Ribbon Tag Tio 2 Nestabilities for the sentiment.  Easy Peasy.  Thanks for looking. 

Have a great 4th of July.  We will be sending it with Richard's family. :)  See ya'll when we get back.

Fore You!

Happy Monday!!  Hope everyone had a great weekend and managed to stay cool.  It is still hot here in Iowa and we are in desperate need of some rain.

This is the card I made for my challenge with Lisa.  It was her pick and she picked a masculine card.  I don't have a lot of masculine stamps and I needed some masculine cards for my Mom.  I found this golf stamp in my stash and decided to ink it up.  I searched for a sketch that I liked and found this one from Clean and Simple, I just don't know the number of it.  I inked up the stamp and colored it with markers, stamped the golf ball again and cut it out, and embossed it with the swiss dots folder so that it would have the little dents in it and popped it up with a pop dot.  It was such a fun card to make that I made 2. LOL  I think I will make a few more, but do them in girlie colors, cuz I am told girls golf too. :)  Thanks for looking.  Stay cool.
