Mother's Day challenges

Once again, i am playing in some challenges, this time is another Mother's Day card which is just perfect for me cuz i get to create and also working on having enough cards to mail my friends and family. I hope you like this one too, is one of the penny black stamps and i used a very  old paper from DCWV (the crafty stack). Is a square card and i left it very simple but I like it anyways, i figure the image was enough.

thank you for looking,

For the boys!!!

This is the card i made for a cousin in my husband's family, he is a very close to my in laws and i figure he would enjoy this card. the inside has a Happy birthday message. The stamp is one that I found on a thrift store close to where I live. I am not sure from where but i really like it. I colored it using my color pencils and the odorless pain thinner from Michael's, I found the technique on YouTube and since i have not been able to find gamsol, i figure i should give it a go. I really like it how it turned out. The paper is one of the DCWV older stacks and i matted everything on black recollections cardstock. This is a A2 size card. I hope you like it and thank you for looking.
lets hear it for the Boys!

Happy Birthday

It's time for another Penny Black challenge. I decide to use a birthday card. I just love the hedgehogs. I kept this card very simple but i really love how it turned out. I also use my cuttlebug folders, and some nestabilities to cut the sames. Best of luck to everyone. The flowers are from my long ago and i added some blue brads. I inked around the edges on my scallop circle with pink chalk ink from colorbox and use one of my unity stamps sentiment. Thank you for looking

Engagement Card-wild card

I made this card using my cricut and the Wild Card cartridge. I have seen so many of the talented ladies use this shape card that I wanted to try it. I cut the card and envelope at 5 inches. I only have the 12x12 mat so it was the biggest I was able to cut the envelope. I use some prima flowers and heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing power. The tag was cut from Storybook cartridge and the happy couple from the Sweethearts cartridge at 3 1/2 inches. the lady’s arm was so delicate that I had to cut it 3 time before it came just right.
I faux stitched all around the card to give it some character and on the front I cut a circle with my Martha Steward circle cutter  in the same color cardstock from the inside of the card. I love how it came out!!!

Sunday, March 11, 2012 i found  this challenge from one of the blogs i follow and i really wanted to enter. Not sure if the card I made really works for the challenge but hopefully it has all it requires. I really love Penny Black stamps and this cute hedgehogs are just adorable. I made this for a wedding we are attending in May. I hope the couple loves it as much as I do. The inside of the card has a wedding poem I found online. Thanks for watching

Jinger Adam's Design Team Call

I know this is a long shot, but i will never know if i do not try. I have followed the everyday cricut blog for quite some time now. Joy and Melanie are some awsome crafters and probably my work can't compare but i do love to create and i want to start letting others see and get inspired like I have with other crafter. Here's to chance...

Re: For the young ones

I finally will be able to enter my projects into the Penny Black challenges. I used a Mimi stamp for this card I made my niece. It came out cute I think. There are a couple of things i would change but overall i like it. I used my nestabilities and some ink.

Mother's Day challenges

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges




I used one of the lovely hedgehog stamps from Penny Black. The paper is from my stash, and stamp from the dollar bin at Michael's. The gems are part of some brads I order a long time ago from Oriental trading, but they always came apart so now i just use the gems and not the brads, they are too big anyways. I really love creating this. I have created like 4 cards this week but hopefully I remember to send them to the people I created them for :)
