Hope Your Day Is Extra Special --Paper Play Sketches 36

February 26, 2017

Playing along with the Paper Play Sketch today.

Such a fun sketch!  I will be using this one again!





My card is created on a white card base.  The woodgrain background is cut using the SugarPea Designs Rectangle Dies.  The flower panel was cut with the same dies.  The arrow strip is added behind the circles.  The frame and the circle were cut using the SugarPea Designs Circle Dies.  The little fox is from the Your Next Stamps Woodland Cuties.  I colored him with Copic Markers and cut him out with the matching dies.  Wink of Stella was added to the fox for shine and orange enamel dots were added for fun!  


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps!!

It is very rare that I can incorporate both challenges in one post, but this week it was a WIN, WIN!  



Our lovely LeAnne is the hostess this week at 
 The Paper Players!   Her sketch is so fun and there are so many ways to interrupt it.  The colors at Sunday Stamps are so pretty.  Please use a minimum of 3 of the colors for your card.  We can't wait to see what you create! 



  

My card is created on a white card base.  A Tangerine Tango background was cut using the MFT Blueprints 20 die.  The top white layer is cut using the same die set.  The flowers are stamped on Tangerine Tango and Bermuda Bay card stock using the Freestyle Florals  by Mama Elephant.  The leaves were stamped on Old Olive card stock.  The matching dies were used to cut out the flowers and leaves.  Wink of Stella and black enamel dots were added in the center of each flower.  The sentiment is stamped in black Memento ink.  After I took my photos, I realized my sentiment was in the wrong place.  :(((

I asked LeAnne to forgive me!  I am leaving to go to Indiana to visit my family and didn't have time to make another card.  



Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from both  design teams and I hope that you will play along with our challenges this week.

Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti-Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #87

February 25, 2017

Time for play along with the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge!  The theme is "KINDNESS"!  I love it! 




My card is created on a white card base.  I found this fun scrap in my pile for the background.  It looked like confetti to me.  I used the SU heart dies to create my shaker element.  I added a lot of colorful sequins inside.  The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo using the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness  stamp set.  The word thanks was cut out 3 times using a die.  Glossy Accents was added for shine. 


So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Hope this card made you want to do something kind today!   

HUGS!
