Rock On!

This fun card was made using the sketch from Sketch Saturday and the color challenge from The Paper Shelter (blues).  The image used is called Melody.  You can buy her singly or in this fabulous set call Music Collection like I did.

Here is the sketch I followed:

For the sentiment line I used a fun die that is usually just too large to use the entire thing, it is a butterfly that is trailing music notes in it's wake.  Obviously, I only used the music notes part.  I added stars, a bow and some pearls.  I used a star embossing folder.

A Blue Cheesy Valentine

Okay, this is blue and a bit cheesy because I don't have a Valentine this year.  Boo Hoo! LOL  This is Pepe L'Souris In Love by the Paper Shelter.  The challenge this week is shades of blue, so...he is blue, like me.  I added a small touch of pink, just to give it that little zing to the heart strings.  I added a die cut heart and some flowers and some gems.  I used some Glossy Accents and some Stickles to the image.

More Cupcake Cards

I ended up making 5 more cupcake cards after the cute girlie one I did last week, on the 16th, you can see it here.  I took them to work and one of my co-workers walked away with three before I realized I forgot to take pictures of all of them...oops!  Well, I still had these two, and they were all very similar, just different color schemes.  Nikki from Limited Runs has started the new year with a freebie for the 'progressive' challenge, every month you participate you get the next month's image free.  This month's is a cupcake.  I chose to make it a trio of cupcakes.  I kept the card layout CAS.  The Sentiment is from Create With TLC.

Birdie Blessings

Gotta adore these charismatic birds from Bugaboo - this image is called Bird Trio Summer.  The card was made to fit the current Stella Says Sketch challenge.

I used an embossing folder for one layer of blue, two fun glittery flowers, and a sentiment made from a die.



I don't know about you, but I'm ready for winter to be over!!!

Valentine Puppy

It's about that time to have some Valentines made up...So, I just got this fun set from Bugaboo called Valentine Pup Set.  I figured it was a scotty dog so I needed to use some fun plaid type paper.  I added a heart boarder punch, some flowers, a stickpin I made and some pearls.  I turned the current Stella Says Sketch sideways.

Hello Friend

This fun card could be good for any occasion, or for Valentine's Day.  The image is from The Paper Shelter, it is called 99 Messages, 3 Chats.    I used a pretty heart die on my glittery paper, and then used a set of heart punches.  I used the punch around the page set for the upper corners and for the edge of the lower strip.  I added gems, flowers, a leaf and a bow.

Gift Card Box

I just got this fun die set in the mail Friday from Close To My Heart (it is on clearance for super cheap HERE).  I couldn't wait to play and had the perfect opportunity with today's challenge over at the 9th Annual Monster Birthday Bash, this challenge is "ABC - Anything but a Card - How about a Party Favor".  It would be fun to make these boxes, fill them with some smaller candies and give them to the guests.  Don't you think?  But it also makes a great box for a gift card.  The image used on this box is the freebie from Bugaboo this week HERE.
