A Glittery Hello!

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

This is my second card for the current Lawnscaping Challenge, it’s using a sketch from Jennifer R. This card uses the snail from the Critters in the ‘Burbs set (colored with Prismacolor pencils) and the “hello” from the “hello foxy” stamp from the Critters in the Forest set. Along with lots of glitter glue for the snails trail and patterned paper from Making Memories.

Like that’s a surprise :) This card is for the current Lawnscaping challenge, this time around it’s a sketch from Jennifer R. I used the squirrel and acorn stamps from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the ‘Burbs set colored with Prismacolor pencils. The words are from Hello Friend from Close To My Heart and the pattern paper is My Mind’s Eye.

Happy Father’s Day

Here are the cards I made for all the Dads in my life :)

This one is for my Dad and I also made a matching one for my Stepdad, they both love to golf. All the shapes are die cut from Silhouette.

This is for my Grandfather, the boat is a Silhouette shape and the compass stamp is from Judikins.

This last one is for my Father in Law, he loves nature and the outdoors. The trees are from Lawn Fawn and the fox is from Hero Arts. I love that fox, he’s so cute!

Hug Me!

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Here’s my latest entry for the current Lawnscaping Challenge, the theme is Clean and Simple. Boy, is that a hard one for me! :) I love pattern paper backgrounds, grunge, embellishments, inking edges, etc., etc. and clean and simple is not my usual style. But I really love the card I made. The little octopus from the Critter of the Sea set is just so cute and she wants to hug you with all eight of her arms :)

The pattern paper is from DCWV, the tiny flower and alpha stamps are from Close to My Heart, die cuts from Nestabilities, ribbon from Martha Stewart, home made baker’s twine, octopus and bubbles stamps from Lawn Fawn.

These are the stamps of our lives….

I just got some really cute stamps from The Stamps of Life and had fun making a couple of cards with them.

This first card combines two sets “banners4all” and “tress2build”. I used all polka dotted images from both sets to go along with the polka dot paper from Echo Park. I used Close To My Heart Inks for both cards, they really do have the best inks for clear stamps. I love the little birdies, so sweet!

This next card uses the “kites2fly” set, it has lots of different patterns for great combinations. I also love the sayings in this set, lots of uplifting (ha,ha) phrases.
