School days

The last time I made a card for the Designed 2 Delight challenge I forgot to post it on the D2D blog!  So I need to make sure when I finish here I go there!  I like this little girl, Maisie Belle.  The pencil sticker and books sticker are part of the goodies I got when I took an online course on Color at Big Picture Classes.com.

Shabby Chic

I made a card yesterday using a technique from the TJ Stampbooking CD.  It is such an easy technique with stunning results, I think.  This is for the I Brake for Stamps Challenge blog and the challenge is make a Shabby Chic card.  I did use stamps from I Brake for Stamps as well.

The second card is done using the packaging from Tim Holtz foliage brad set.  I took an online class about color and the instructor mentioned the pretty packaging on some items.  I had never really noticed that before.  I stamped the lady, also from IBFS, directly onto the shiny paper and then sprayed it with Goose Bumps, which besides being a resist, also leaves a really cool texture on the paper.

Every Flower is to bloom

I have had a good time making cards the past two days.  The first is the Designed2Delight image this week called Every flower.  I added  more flowers and then added last week's border along the bottom of the flowers.  Faith's white filled PNG images are so much fun to play with that I have to try and combine at least two images every week.  The sunflower paper is one of the background papers from TLC.
The Asian card was made with my new Cuttlebug Asian set which has four folders in it.  The stamps are from Stampin Up.
I got the Aspen leaf and lady's face stamp from Stampland and combined those with stamps from Darcies to make my first Autumn card.  I don't like snow and am not really looking forward to winter, but wouldn't mind a little cooler fall weather!

Happy Thursday

I had a friend visit for a week and we went to the stamp convention in Cincinnati.  What a great time we had!  I really like the Cheery Lynn dies that I bought from Our Daily Bread Designs. The first card uses the current image from Designed2Delight and paper and ribbon from Stampin Up.
The second card uses a precious little image from Lily of the Valley, ltd.

Mice Wishes

I made a card using a Designed 2 Delight image.  Great image for a birthday card-even for an adult.  I love the little Mice sentiment.  I hate, hate real mice, but love the little digi mice.  They leave no droppings behind, except for a little paper!
The second card is one I did using an old SU stamp set because one of the ladies on one of my groups mentioned making an Egyptian card and didn't have a charm for it.  Even though I used inkjet shrink paper for my main image, it is great to use for a smaller embellishment.  I really love this paper.  The charm I used is from Hobby Lobby's clearance section and is quite thick so am not sure if I will even mail it.  Maybe I can hand deliver it to someone.

CDAC progressive challenge

Crafter's Digital Arts Center is giving free images this month for us to make cards with and post to the site.  There are six this month and I love all of them.  I made cards last night using four of them.  The first  is a little dancer from Whoopsi Daisy  designs.  I have ordered a lot of images from this site and love using them on cards.  The punched border I made using a punch I just got yesterday from EK Success.

The second card, using two of the images, are from Sandi's Samples.  The sentiment is from my very favorite blog and store-TLC Creations.

The last precious image is from Anne's Digital Art.  I added another sentiment form TLC Creations.

I really like all of the images offered this month.  I am going to enjoy making the other two into cards also and will use these again.
