You Melt My Heart

Hi, All!!! I am spending the afternoon in my craft room and I hope to get lots done!!

Here is my first card made today:

meltmyheartsig

I made this card using the Lawn Fawn stamp set – Here’s The Scoop and matching dies!

Stamped the image and sentiment with the  Versafine – Onyx Black  inkpad and used Clear ultra fine embossing powder.

Colored images in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and a Zig Detailer Watercolor brush!

The strips that I have going diagonally across my card are 1/2 inch in width and they have been cut from scraps! I used an old SU! punch to punch out and then put the stamped image in that space on the card with foam squares!

I am really pleased with how this turned out!!

Linking up to the following challenges:

Citrus & Such

For my card this time over at Simply Create Too – Challenge # 91: Anything Goes I made a card using a fave set from Stampin’ Up! that I have held onto for many years called Citrus and Such!

Popping in very quickly before I go to dinner with my sisters – I have 4 of them!!

After shopping with my daughter for several hours I was able to make this:

redbirdhellosig

I used a light blue card base and added die cuts from this Paper Smooches die – Seasonal Tree!

The pieces were cut out from scraps! A little word to say hello completed my card!

She is our Batman lover – she is in the Red shirt with the big grin on her face!!!

She is awesome and I love when she oohs and ahhs over my cards – she is a great cheerleader!! We have been very busy celebrating her and partying with her and her friends!!

But I was able to make it into my craft room today for a quick card making session while she was at a movie with a friend and this is what I made:

cherrysodasig

All the items used to make this card are from Doodlebug Designs – the mini ladybug doily, the shimmery chevron paper, the papers and the sticker are from the Patriotic Picnic collection! Oh, the sentiment is from Your Next Stamp – the Fast Food Fun Sentiments set! I stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with white!

I made this card using the Lawn Fawn stamp set – Here’s The Scoop and matching dies! They can also be purchased here at 7kidscollegefund.com The colored rectangles in the background were scraps and I cut them with a stitched die, same with the longer white rectangle that stretches the width of the card! I used some black twine to add interest!

Think Pink – 2 Pink cards

Today – I am feeling PINK!!

Both cards I have created for challenges feature Pink and MORE Pink!!

Card # 1 –

pinkbikecardsig

I made it using the Minc. I won from an awesome artist/blogger friend (and someone I really admire) named Payel of BeauMonde Designs – it came with some awesome die cuts and I used those with the pink foil that came in the kit!!

I think the pink and the bike and the sparkle of the foil are so perfect for this challenge:
