Happy Birthday to Michael

Here is a 30th Birthday card I made for my brother...
Inspired by Moxie Fab Worlds Color Inspiration Challenge and Case Study Sketch Challenge.
The sentiment was stamped with Fiskars Birthday stamp and Jenni Bowlin Lemon Drop Dabber. Embellished with some Making Memories ribbon and hand stiching. The "3-0" was cut out with the Wishblade (DON'T suggest this cutter!), and painted with some Tattered Angels Caribbean Blue mist, Jenni Bowlin Soap Powder Dabber, Turqoise Ranger Stickles, & finished with Dazzling Diamonds Tattered Angels Mist.... Shines better in person ;).

Also entering in the following challenges;
JBS Inspiration, Dabbers
Craft Sentiments, Favorite Things (Dabbers & Glimmer Mist)
Drunken Stampers Birthday Challenge (Here's to 29 more years lol)

Hope you like.

Happy Birthday to Nicole

A Day Late... lol ... But Happy Birthday none the less!!

Here is a fun birthday card I made using my new Hero Arts Fun Flowers & Jenni Bowlin inks.
The butterfly borders & embellishments are from Martha Stewart punches.

Inspired by the Moxie Fab World Bright & Bold Color Challenge and their Tuesday Trigger,

The popping pink & orange in this photo are so fun as well as the varied sizes or the circles in the garland, I might actually have to make two projects for this one :)

I have also entered this card into the Ink on My fingers Diamond Challenge, Stampin B's Old & New Challenge, Craft your Days Away'Anything Goes', Sentimental Sundays, and the Dutch Dares New Beginning challenge for a new year older!!

Love, Love

Here's a card I made today for Valentines day.... Inspired by Lucy's Day 4 Sketch Challenge & Moxie Fab Worlds Tuesday trigger...

I love the white wedding cake covered in simple white flowers. Here's what I am up with...

I have been wanting to use my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to do a ribbon technique I saw on Archivers blog (bottom of the card). It was originally top of the card but I wasn't feeling it. I embossed the background with a flower plate (Inspired by the Cake).

Here's a card featuring lots of Ranger by Tim Holtz products! ...Love...
I've entered this card into day 2 of Lucy's Sketch Challenge :)
Hope you like!

This was also my very first time on a sewing machine so I am pretty excited about that~
Tried out the new Irock tool for the gems, not to sure how I am feeling about it just yet--- If you don't hold it for the precise number of seconds at the precise heat, the glue will seap out.

All the stamps are Tim Holtz which are actually pretty awesome stamps for clear stamps. They were from the visually artistry collection and there definitely something to own! Their far higher quality then most clear stamps out there (for about the same price).
Also got the chance to use my new Zutter Distrezz-it-All. VERY awesome!

Until next time...

Live.Laugh.Love Card

This card was created for a few purposes. First, I wanted to try out lots of new things I got for christmas this year hehehehe, Also for Lucy's Sketch Week Day 1 and the Glitter is Glam Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Mounted on a Glitter background, I stamped White Card stock with the flower image using VersaFine Ink. The center of the flowers were painted first with Smooch Pearl Accent Ink (Top Coat) and then glittered with Martha Stewart Fine Glitter. The petal centers were painted again with Smooch Pear Accent Ink, Hot Pink. Then, The purple flower was painted using Twinkling H20's Got em for Christmas :). To top it all off, I stamped my favorite sentiment using Stazon, Cherry Pink.

Its time to put all those hours of shopping and paychecks spent, to good use, actually using all the paper crafting supplies I own!!

I might even take a stab at the digital world while I am at it, seems fun.
