Little Gem

Hello!! Today I have a Birthday card to share with you. I used one of my Pink Gem Designs stamps called Little Gem with Flowers. He actually comes with a basket of roses too but I masked them off to fit with Mercy's sketch! I also followed a recipe challenge with this card. We were to us 3 pieces of DP, 1 piece of ribbon, 3 flowers and 3 buttons. For the flowers I added 2 primas to go along with the rose in Gem's mouth. I outlined the rose with my Sakura clear stardust pen and it's sparkly! Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Daisies

Hello! I saw the color inspiration challenge at Die Cuts R Us and thought Spring!! I used the sunflowers from the Gina K Signs of Autumn and turned then into Daisies!! I used the sketch challenge from Stamp TV and the Clearly Inspired challenge to use brads. The Daisies are sparkly although you can't tell that from my photo, I used my Sakura Clear Pen all over the flowers. I also used a CB folder on the DP layer. I think this would make a nice Mother's day card. Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Boy Blue

Hello!! I noticed this week there are alot of challenges involving the word "New" for the New Year I guess, so I thought it would be fun to see how many I could do on this card! I used a new stamp that I've had for awhile and never used. It's by Inkadinkado. I cut out my image with the Label 4 nesties. I love the Label nesties but the sizes are so far apart for layering so for my brown layer I traced the die and cut it out by hand so that it would be a closer fit. To help hide my hand cutting I used my distressing tool on it and several of the other layers as well, to give it that worn look. I also sponged/distressed some brown ink on my DP layer as well. I wrapped some twine around it an added a button tied with some gingham ribbon. I added some pearls in the one corner to finish it off. I used a Quickutz folder on the bottom blue panel. I wish I had some of this same DP in Pink and Brown to make a little girl card but the pink version uses black instead and I'm not sure about a Pink & Black baby card??!! I'll add a link list to all the challenges. Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think, I Love reading your comments!
