Dazzles & Teal

Hello, I am back again to share a card with you that I made.
This week the throwdown at Operation Write Home is a color challenge to use teal or turquoise as your primary color on your card.    I am sure you have heard of OWH, they are a fabulous organization that does wonderful things for our troops that are deployed.  If you have not heard of them please check out there blog HERE.
This card is so pretty in person.  The bees & flowers are Dazzle stickers that are very sparkly.  I have so many of them but always forget to use them.  I triple matted the 3 labels and the strip behind them.  I think it really sets them off.
I will stamp a sentiment on it when I decide how to use it.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peak at me blog.

Watercolor Poppy Birthday

Well hello, I am back with a post today of a card I made using my Rubbernecker 2 step stamp set Poppy Fields .   Rubbernecker has some beautiful sets and also some of the funniest saying stamps I have ever seen.
I made this card following the sketch this week at Mojo Monday.
The theme is "tall & Skinny", my card measures 8.5 x 4 inches and fits into a business size #10 envelope. 
It took me a couple tries to line of the two stamps but then again it is not supposed to be perfect.  :.) The happy birthday is a Verve stamp.  I did some faux stitching around the flower and also in the scalloped circle.
The background paper I made using watercolor paper and my water soluble crayons.  I am having funny making some of these papers.  I first spritz the watercolor paper with water then scribble on it with the color crayons I wanted, then sprayed it again pretty heavy with water so the colors would blend together.  After it was all dry I sprayed it with Tattered Angels spray so it has a sparkle to it.  Over at Sentimental Sundays this week the challenge is to make your own background paper so I will be entering this card in that challenge also. 
Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope you enjoyed my card today.

Birthday Wish

Hello all, I am back again today to share a birthday card with you.
I love playing along with sketch challenges and I ran across a new one last week called WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch challenge from The House that Stamps Built, a Repeat Impressions stamps blog.
I love the way the color combination looks.  I used papers from the DCWV Nana's Kids stack.  I embossed the white background with a Spellbinder M-Bossabilities reversible folder.  The white banner I embossed with the Cuttlebug folder birthdays.  When I went to adhere the wish sticker I notice that it was right after the word birthday from the folder, that was purely accidental.
I will be entering this in the WHAT IF? sketch challenge.  

Thanks for stopping by, if you like to do sketches head on  over to the WHAT IF challenge you have till February 18th to link your card.

Few Birthday Cards

Hello, again it has been sometime since I have posted on my blog.  I have been busy making cards just have not got to sit down and post them.
So today I am going to share with you a few birthday cards I have made recently.
This made using papers from an old K&Company speciality paper pack that I have.  The white parts are the bottom on the card are raised up, almost like puffy.
The papers on this card are from the CTMH Sonoma paper pack.  I stamped the happy birthday using a Verve stamp.
This is a simple card, however the background paper I made using my water soluble crayons on water color paper, then spritzed it with some Tattered Angels, I love the way it came out. The happy birthday was cut using the CTMH Artbooking cartridge.  I also used a stick pin that I received in a swap a couple of years ago.

Well thanks for stopping by, I have some more cards to share you which I hope to post in the next week.
