My DP is Jillibean Soup's Portobello, the solid color cardstock is by Paper Studio, the rhinestones are by K&Company, the stamp is Penny Black colored with Copic Sketchers, border punch is by Stampin Up, butterfly punch by Paper Studio, Stickles on the butterflies and one of the circles, and I used some Diamond glaze on the flower heads for some depth.
I hand wrote the sentiment. (Do you think it looks ok?)
It's nice to have this ready for Mother's Day ahead of time!
Hi. This is a card I made for my sister for her birthday last year. The whole card is a tag! The rose is Iris Folded. It's a photo of one of our roses in front of our house, in fact, it's the rose on the banner of my blog!
Hi. Today I made a card for the Charisma Challenge (Hugs and Cuddles) and I used the sketch from the Sparkle Christmas challenge. It feels good to get some Christmas cards done ahead of time. This was a great sketch, I just flipped it to accomodate the image.
The papers I've used are K&Company Gold Floral, Memories Morning Blue and Stampin Up's Ballet Blue. I cut and embossed two Nestibilities butterflies and glitzed them with Stickles Stardust. My sentiment is from Printables clear stamps and the letters on the right are Debbie Mumm's Country Alphabet. I made a matching envelope.
Thanks for stopping by. Good luck to anyone else who enters these challenges!
I just won an awesome prize on the Dutch Dare Challenge #35! So here I am entering their #36 challenge. The challenge is to make a card with Yellow and Green colors. Check out their blog, it is really fun and they have a great DT!
Here is my card for the Penny Black Challenge. And here's the link: http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/2009/02/week-36-sketch-by-nat.html It's my first time entering there. Actually, all the cards that I have posted today and yesterday were 1st time entries on different challenges. I am having a blast!
Hey, if anyone out there would be so kind as to explain to me how you get a link on a post without having to do the copy and paste thing, please let me know. You know, like how most of the other blogs just say: Here: and it takes you to the blog site. Urgh, I can't figure it out.
I love Penny Black stamps, though I only have 2. I plan to get more. Isn't this a cute stamp? First I heat embossed the image, then I colored it with watercolor pencils, cut it and matted it using Nestabilities dies. It's secured with pop-dots. The patterned paper I've used is from Basic Grey's Sultry line. Aren't they yummy papers? The card base is Bazzil card stock. Thanks for checking it out. Come back again.
This card is for two different challenges: Crafty Creations sketch and Dutch Dare Buttons and Bows. I have used Jillibean Soup papers again. I just love the Cream of Mushroom line! The cupcake sentiment is by Hero Arts and the bottom one I wrote in myself with a white Uni-ball Signo pen. Then I just used embroidery floss through the buttons. The CC sketch was a great one to work with. I am pleased with how my card turned out. What do you think?
This weeks challenge is "Spring has Sprung" Here is my card for the challenge. Here's the address: http://thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/2009/02/challenge-19.html My card is a layered image or 3D, which I cut out by hand. I learned this technique from a great on-line crafting community called Circle of Crafters. Thank you for looking!
I am having so much fun entering challenges today! This one was a great idea on Cuttlebug challenges. It's a shapes challenge. Here is the link to it: http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/2009/02/shape-cards-with-cuttlebug-be-inspired.html
My card is for Easter. (kind of obvious) I used the Forest Branches folder. I printed the sentiment onto gold vellum, directly from my printer. I haven't added a sentiment to the inside yet. Not sure who I'll give this one to. Hope you like it. Thanks for taking a look.
Here is my card for the CPS challenge. (http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/) I used paper and embelleshiments from Jillibean soup (cream of mushroom papers) I really love their papers. The sentiment is a clear stamp from Hero Arts. This sketch is really great! Thanks for looking! Jennifer
This is my card for the Iheart2stamp challenge this week. (http://iheart2stamp.com/2009/02/14/happy-valentines-day-sketch/comment-page-1/#comment-32083) I used papers from Basic Grey's Sugared collection. the stamps are Inkadinkado (giraffe) and PSX (sun). I used an organza ribbon at the lower portion and 3 mirrored baubles on the side of the card. Thanks for stopping by!
Yeah!! I won a beautiful set today! I am so shocked and elated! It's so beautiful. It's from the new line of sets by Our Craft Lounge called "In His Name" I won it on Toy's Haven Blog. http://toyzhaven.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/

Sorry, I don't know how to upload an image of it on my post.
Isn't it amazing? I can't wait to start using it making cards to glorify the Lord with it!
Here's some little Valentine tags that I made to paste onto some big Chocolate hearts for my son's 1st grade classroom. They were easy to make. I used a Nestabilities tag for the colored paper (by Paper Studio)and the white tags were premade by Paper Reflections (at Hobby Lobby), stamped the heart (by Penny Black) with red pigment ink (by JoAnn CraftEssentials) and them slipped different colors of ribbon through the top punched holes. Thanks for looking!
Over at 2 Sketches 4 You, they are giving away some wonderful Sakura of America products to celebrate Valentines Day. All you have to do is show them who your eye candy is and link it back to them. So, here's my super sweet eye candy, my husband, Brett! He is in a christian motorcycle club. He looks tough, but he's just a big teddy bear!
Here is my card entry for this months card challenge on Caardvarks. I made it for my neice. The heart has magnets on the back of it and it is removable. She put the heart on her fridge! Sorry the quality of the picture isn't that great. Caardvarks is a great site! You can visit it here: http://caardvarks.blogspot.com/
