Baby card. #tgifc11

Hello again. 

I made a card yesterday that I noticed would qualify for a sketch challenge over at TGIF Challenges Blog

I don't usually do sketch challenges so maybe it was in my subconscious memory. Or now that I look at it, I think this is a typical go to layout for me. Anyhow here's the card.

Here's the sketch


I embossed the "Congratulations" in silver

 The edges I distressed with my fingernail.

Have a great day!

Good morning! #TGIFCTD02

Today I have a card I made for the Throwdown Challenge over at TGIF Challenge. It's a new challenge. 
You pick at least 4 items from the "basket" and you get a "pantry" of items you may use. If it's not in the "pantry" you may not use it! 
I had SO much fun with this one!!

Here's the "basket"

Here's the "pantry"

Now I don't have either stamp set so I had to do without one.

Here's my card I came up with.

 I used Pool Party and Hello Honey Ink pads and the Aqua Painter to color the doily,
and a clear block inked with Hello Honey and the Spritzer with water for the "square" under the 18

 I colored the White Baker's Twine and San Francisco, Paris, New York & Santa Fe with the Aqua Painter and Pool Party & Hello Honey ink pads. The paper strip down the side also.

 I put Dimensionals under the city names, which i cut out from one of the papers in the Typeset DSP

 I had SO much fun with this challenge, I want to make another one!
Thanks for the fun and different challenge! 

Have a wonderful day!
And Thanks for stopping by!

Hey, short and sweet today. 

I made a card for a NEW challenge I found. #TGIFC10

A very pretty combo


Here's my card

 Butterfly is stamped first with Smoky Slate then Blackberry Bliss. I did stamp them off first on scratch paper.
Then I cut it out with the Butterfly Thinlits Dies and a Vellum butterfly with the Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies.
I just stapled the Gold Baker's Twine with the Handheld Stapler.
And popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals

 Embossed "You are so kind" with Blackberry Bliss Ink and Clear Embossing Powder.
Then popped up the middle

Have a great day!

 Sprinkles of Life!

This is a must have! Especially if you make kid's cards AND part of the sales go to a VERY good cause! $3 for every stamp set purchased.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities

It helps families in need when they have long hospital stays.
AND it has a coordinating punch!

So here's a card I made with it. And the new Bohemian DSP. Very pretty! Especially if you LOVE purple and blue together.

 Here's a sparkly cupcake! What girl could resist one of these?
I added Dazzling Diamonds to the 2015-2017 In Color Blossoms Accents with VersaMark and Heat aand Stick Powder.

I added a staple to the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim for more stability 

 The cupcake and flag are popped up with Dimensionals

  Have a great day!
