Sketch Challenge Mingle

This is the sketch challenge mingle card I made for Inkstainers. I'm sorry I can't tell you who makes the lady in the tub stamp, as I got it unmounted off Ebay about a year ago. Robin already received her card, so now I can post a pic. The bubbles are Liquid Pearls White with a dab of Stickles Crystal.

ATC Monochromatic Mingle at

I signed up for the ATC Monochromatic Mingle at Here's the one I made for Linda way back the first of February. She has already received it, so now I'm free to post a pic on my blog. I chose the colour Blue for the ATC:

The background is Adirondack Alcohol Ink - Denim, Stream, Eggplant and Silver, mounted on Navy Blue c/s. I stamped and embossed the fairie in black, and coloured her with Twinkling H20's for bling.There are Stickles glitter on her wings. The corner die is by Sizzix. The scroll flowers and verse "happy moments" are stamped with Stazon Azure Blue ink. Prima flowers.


Thank You Card

This is a fairly simple card I whipped up this morning as a thank you. I recently bought the black and white paper at the local scrapping store, and love it's graphic damask pattern. I tore a strip of black c/s and attached to the edge of the flower layer. There is a touch of glitter on the flower petals; pink ribbon adds a pop of colour.

I could sure use some new dies!!!

"Scrapling" Challenge

There was a challenge Feb.13th on weekly challenges to make a "scrapling" in red or pink, and use a Quickutz die. A scrapling is the bit of cardstock left over from cutting 12x12 paper if you make a 5" square card.
The size is 2" x 4", so it's quite narrow, and that's the challenge! Kind of like doing an ATC, but smaller again. Also they should be made with scraps of PP that have have laying around. No sense cutting into new paper, then you have more scraps!LOL

I was late in doing mine, so did a "Thank you" one, rather than valentines theme. The scalloped circle is a Quickutz cookie cutter die, and thank you is a sticker from my stash.

Birthday Card

This is a folded flap birthday card I made for a friend with DCWV (Die Cuts With a View) Chocolate Frosting paper. The striped PP inside the card is also DCWV. Just love this paper, it's so pretty! Wish I had bought more at the time. The pink C/S is Bazzill Pink Bling. The circle dies are Quickutz Cookie Cutter Scalloped dies, edged with Brilliance White ink. Slot punch for the ribbon by Stampin'Up! The little "how sweet" verse is by Studio G stamps.

After you untie the ribbon, on the inside first fold, I used another scalloped circle stamped with "for you",punched some holes for lace effect, and added some Prima flowers. After opening that fold, you come to the final inside part of the card. I cut the bottom part of the paper with scalloped scissors, put together the cupcake using a Sizzix Sizzlet cupcake die, liquid pearls for the frosting, and Stickles Glitter. Birthday verse by "Snag Em" clear stamps.

Who-o-o Loves You?

This afternoon, I did this card for my nephew Chris (age 12) in hospital. I'm sure he will get a kick out of the owl's googly eyes. The owl stamp is by Inkadinkado, and the heart border is by Great Impressions. I printed the verse on the 'puter, and sponged/edged the PP with Distress Ink, Brushed Corduroy.
