Thinking of you butterfly

For the challenge I did a Swiss dot pattern and white on a green card stock I strong and Ivy border through the middle stamped in black in the bottom corner and add a large butterfly.

Butterflies in green

For this challenge, decided to get out my embossing machine and use up,a few scraps of paper to do some spring cleaning😊🌺🌺

I used a tree folder to create the background, on a pice of green textured paper,  then I strung a piece of green string thru the card and my punched out design that I had previously stamped, to create a swing. I added the butterflies where I strung the string holes thru.

Bunny in basket

 Cute little bunny in a basket . I used my gel pens to put a little bit of color on the bunny in the basket I layered it on a multicolored patterned paper and then on a plum card stock.

Polka dots

For this special,400 th challenge, I chose to make a card from the throwback of Challenge 303.

I chose a white and tan polkadotted cardstock. I cut it lengthways and then folded it into thirds. 
I found another darker polkadotted paper to make the flap. I chose a cupcake out of felt that had stripes throughout. I  glued it onto the top of the flap. I added the tag at the top.

B is for.....Buzzing Bee

 For this challenge I layered several different texured papers and lots of colors together,then found this cute little bee for the top layer to finish it off. This card is also a sign of spring that is just around the corner😊😊


With Mothers Day fast approaching, I've been working on starting my Mothers Day cards.
I kept this one very CAS. I used 2 different sized punches. The smalller one I used on a pre printed cardstock, the second on a bit darker paper. I added a pink heart stud and layered it on olive paper, then on white cardstock.

Flower bunny

It's all about spring and bright colors! Started on white card stock layered on an orange Swiss dot pattern that I embossed. Then I layered a strip of yellow polkadotted material layered on a bright purple with studs on the end and I stamp my image in black, heat embossed it and added a little bit of sparkle with my gel pens.

I started on white cardstock, layered on a pink flowery paper. I used my flower diecut 
And took the outer layer for this challenge to create a little depth. I had not used my diecuts in awhile, so was fun playing around a bit again. I used the same flower paper to create a base for mynstamped sentiment and added a couple of gems to finish it off.

Thinking of you

 For this thinking of you challenge I did a multilayer fold card I started with a 3.5 x 8inch  piece of  Cream color card stock and making the fold on the left side so that it ends up to be 3.5 x 5 to fit in an envelope.   I layered on a solid color coral paper  On just the flat bottom piece of paper, then layered a multi colored paper. Then I cutt another piece of  card stock a little bit slimmer than the multi colored paper only twice as long so that I could fold it over and that essentially  it serves as the very inside of the card which ice stamped a sentiment and also  the front of the card. I layered on another piece of coral paper and my stickers in my sentiment . Back on the left side flap I layered a multi colored piece of paper and then a woodgrained more solid piece of paper and stamped my sentiment on that side.  I'm sure my directions are clear as mud that's why I included all three pictures so you could kind of see how I put it all together.

B is for BOY!

 For the challenge I am boss to random pattern on light blue paper I ran some string around and put it on white card stock. Then I had a sticker in olive, plum and light blue and put it on a  light blue and white polkadot paper.

CAS B for baby

I used my pink and blue ink pads and a roller that had a baby design on it. I rolled it on in alternating colors on a full,sheet of white cardstock. Then I cut my card size, folded it in half and stamped for baby in black. Can be for a boy or girl.

B is for...Spring time bunny

I stamped and heat embossed the bunny in black on light purple paper. I used my gel pens to add a bit of color. I really like using these as they are quick and easy and always make things 'pop'  and sparkle on the card.   I Then layered it on a couple other figured papers and then on tan, and added the ribbon.

Wishes from seaside

 I recently won this image on bugaboo stamps....he's pretty cute😊
 I used regular colored pencils to color this image in. I quite frequently, when I can't make up my mind to do something different or just want to do ...... will grab my colored pencils. They seem to be my favorite go to....after I am done I sometimes take a tiny paintbrush and a dab of water and smooth it over the colored pencils to make it an even softer looking image and blend everything together.  I layered  this image on a dark blue paper that I had embossed in a bubble pattern, layered it on white card stock and use my black ink marker to distress the edges of the card.

Popcorn sleeve

For this anything goes challenge I made a popcorn sleeve. I took my bag of popcorn and cut a piece of heavy card stock the same with and wrapped it around and used a little bit of tacky glue on the edges. And I took a smaller contrasting pieces and did the same thing. Then I use my diecut machine to cut out the designs and put them together on the sleeve. This could be used for any occasion.
