Lavender and Hearts and signing up!
Simon Says-Create with Critters
Whimsy Stamps-With Love
Retro Rubber Challenge-Feeling Sketchy RRCB30
Chocolate Baroque-light blue, green, yellow and pink
Oh I was dabbling with colours and got more on my fingers than the card. I did some smooshing-what is that you may ask? You take Tim Holtz ink pads (he's a big guy in the stamp business with his own line of stuff), stamp the colour on some hard plastic pad that wipes clean, spritz it with water and then lay the white card into the colour and you get some neat effects. I placed the white cardstock in pink and green (light) which gives the effect on the right side of the card. I used my cuddlebug and some nice shimmery pale yellow paper, placed it in the embossing sleeve I wanted and rolled it through the machine. I added a ribbon with some yellow gold and pink colours and glued it in place. I took a stencil and I had some shimmery paste that is very thin and placed it on the heart stencil using a palette knife. You spread it like you do icing. I let that dry, cut it out and placed the hearts on with pop up dots. I took a stamp that I have had for, around 4 years, to stamp the sentiment and the butterfly is about the same time frame, which is also stamped and coloured a little. Some border stickers were added as well as some pale pink hearts for a little bling. This will go to my dear friend who is one busy lady.
52 Christmas Cards-Christmas candles or Lantern
CHNC #2- Anything Goes as long as it is Christmas
Craft Your Passion-Always Anything Goes
I enjoyed creating this card with somewhat different colours than the usual Christmas scheme of things. It is 3D pop up style where you keep layering the candle image . I placed it on a nice golden/yellow card and the final lavender cardstock. It is finished off with silver border stickers.
Another 2 cards and I am on a roll....for me that is:)
In April there is something exciting happening...nope I am not going to Europe, going sky-diving(that would be a nightmare) or meeting the Queen (unless you think of the local drag queen every city has), I am signing up, once again, for the Blogging A to Z challenge! Every day in April, except for Sunday, one blogs about anything you would like as long as you correspond to the letters of the alphabet. April 1st is the letter A, the 2nd is the letter B and so on. You can have a theme or you can change it up every day if you want. I will not be talking about film stars this year even though I could keep on going. I will still stick to the same genre because it comes easy to me and I like easy (no comments please:)) This is a big event since almost 2,000 joined in on this event. I hope some of you will be become part of it. I have met some wonderful bloggers and I cherish meeting all of you and reading all of your blogs.
Have a great week everyone!
