365 Cards - Sunday Sketch 315 and Challenge 316 Pure Elegance

The challenge for Monday was to create a card that was elegant. I used taupe card stock and some Bo Bunny leftover Christmas paper (shhhhhh!) The velvety ribbon accent is from Maya Road in cocoa. I also used some prima bling in a taupe color and Java colored ink to accent the monochromatic look. Hope you like it!

The Sunday sketch this week is a wonderful challenge. I got out my new Graphic 45 papers with fairies and a spring time theme. I added some velvet ribbon from Maya Road and bling that was from the $1.00 bin at JoAnn! I really like how it came out. The rub on came from Cosmo Cricket. I love the look of this paper line. It is just fun to work with.

Have a fantabulous week everyone!

Two New Projects

I have two new projects to share with you today. The first one is a baby frame made with a plain IKEA frame. It was painted pink (hydrangea pink) and flowers and Beatrice Potter illustrations added. The photo was matted with Graphic 45 paper. I love how it came out and can hardly wait to see it the baby's mom likes it at her shower!

This Steam Punk inspired tag was made entirely with supplies from Eye-Lets, Etc Consumer Store (except the ink and stickles). You should check out the deals on the site. Terri has amazing pricing and you can get some fabulous papers and embellishments to create projects like this!

365 Cards - Sunday Sketch

I have had these embossed DCWV square LOVE cards for awhile. I saw this weeks Sunday Sketch at 365 cards and a lightbulb went on! I stamped and embossed the red "graffiti" heart on the lower right hand corner with Ranger Distress Ink in Fired Brick. The smaller hearts were stamped and embossed with some tiny tiny Maya Road stamps using the same ink. I hung them with rick rak from Jillibean Soup. I really like how simple this message of love is!
Thanks for stopping by!

Green, glitter and grosgrain - Flashback Saturday

This was done for the flashback Saturday challenge at 365 Cards. I used Bazzill Princess Pink card stock for the card and mat. The patterned papers are from Pink Paisley (in green), the grosgrain ribbon is from Fancy Pants (green and pink) and I used lime colored glitter around the edge of the vintage game card. All to welcome a new little one to the world! Thanks for taking a peek!
