Welcome Little One

My second card tonight is again used for two different challenges. First is the Daring Card Makers challenge to make a card celebrating something new. Challenge #2 is for Stamp TV's inspiration challenge. This was a challenge to use an inked cuttlebug folder, and the colors of tile. I used paper from JoAnn's, verse from the $ bin at Micheal's, silk flowers, star brad, ribbon, pop dots, two different cuttlebug embossing folders and brown Memento ink. See you tomorrow, Janet

You're so sweet

Tonights first card is for the Just Birthday's and Christmas challenge and the Crazy 4 challenges Sat. polka dot challenge. I used paper from JoAnn's, creative memories corner punch, two sizes of circle punches, some yarn, pop dots and a recycled card to create this card. The verse is from the Angel company. Enjoy, Janet

Celebrate in Pink

This is my entry in the Stamp Something Fri. challenge. We were to use something we received new. I used my new Nestibilities to cut out my stamped image. The ribbon is also a new roll I recently bought. The papers are from JoAnn's and the sparkly flowers are from the $ store. Thanks for stopping by, Janet

Owl Always Love You

This is my entry in Stamp TV's Monday color challenge. We needed to use pink, white and brown. The sketch is for one of my swap groups. I used my new Nestibilities to cut the main image which is a digi stamp from The Paper Shop. The paper is from JoAnn's, I used colored pencils to color the image and inked the edges of my papers. I finished the card off with ribbon and glittery flowers I bought at the $ store.

Earth Cupcake

This is my entry in the Whimsie Doodle Wed. challenge. We needed to use numbers, I chose to do the background mat using the cuttlebug embossing numbers folder. My Whimsie digi image is the Save the Earth cupcake set. This is the first time I have used this image and I found it lots of fun to work with. Thanks for taking a look.

Vintage Fisherman

Here is my entry in the Paper Craft Planet color challenge and in Stamp TV's cheater bow challenge.
My image comes from Two For Tuesday digi stamps. The verse is a $ stamp from Micheals. The corner punch is from Creative Memories. I used the two hole cheater method of making a bow. Love this method, so easy and looks very neat. I used colored pencils and gel pens to color my image and verse. Thanks for stopping by, Janet

It's Your Big Day

Here is my entry in the Digi Kitty Monday challenge and the Stamp TV's cheater bow challenge. I used the birdheart digi stamp from Digi Kitty colored with my pencils and put on the card with pop dots. I inked my cuttlebug folder and used it for the background. The ribbon and bow are put on using one of the bow cheat instructions. Ribbon goes onto the card first, then make a bow and put it onto the ribbon with a glue dot. The verse is from one of the $ stamps from Micheals, I used my new Fiskers heart punch, inked the edges and used pop dots to add it to my card. Small pink crystals were used to add an accent. Enjoy, Janet

Birthday Girl in Pink

Here is my MOJO Monday sketch card, it is also the Stamping Stage color challenge for this week.
I used one of my new Winter collection Magnolia stamps for my image and colored her with my pencils and then used the blender pen. I inked up my cuttlebug birthday embossing folder and embossed the white cardstock. I then cut my shape with the new Nesties I bought this week. To finish up my card I used a little ribbon with some red, orangish gold card stock and dark pink cardstock for the base card. Hope you all enjoy my efforts and check back often to see what is new. Janet

Celebrate in white with stars

Here is another white on white card. I used the Stamp TV sketch challenge for this one. The embossed paper is from the Just Cards embossed paper swap, next layer is wall paper, top piece is white card stock with Celebrate heat embossed with white and silver embossing powder. I punched the little stars using one of my old punches, put silver gems in the middle and used pop dots to put them onto the card. Enjoy, Janet

Celebrate in White

Today's first card is for the AiFactory challenge to make a card that can be given to anyone. It is also for one of my swap groups color challenge. White on White. Hard to scan though so I hope you can get a good enough idea of how it looks. I used one of the embossed backgrounds I received in a swap on my Just Cards group, Heat embossed Celebrate onto white cardstock and then cut it out with my new nesties. attached it to the card with pop dots and added a white ribbon in the oposite corner. Hope you enjoy the card. Janet

Cabin in the woods

This is my entry in the Little Paper Shop color challenge. We were to use Navy blue, lt. blue and silver. This is my new scenic stamp I bought at Craft Warehouse today. I stamped and embossed the image twice using two different silver embossing powders. I added a little color with my pencils to add a little more demension to the trees and cabin area also for the snow on the ground. The birthday greeting is from Micheal's $1 stamps and the ribbon is some I bought at a second hand store. Hope you enjoy the card, Janet
