Cowboy Sunset

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Chris aka fargets...congrats, Chris!  I cannot resist a good sunset, so I chose this awesome card to case (copy and share everything) from her gallery.  Instead of sponging my background this time, I used an awesome print from the Landscapes Paper Pad (from Divinity Designs LLC) and paired it with stamps and dies from the April Blessings Box: Happy Trails (clear stamps), Cowboys and Cactus Silhouettes, Pierced Frames; and the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies set.

Peaceful Park Sympathy

Town Square Bench from A Cottage in the City
Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from 'A Cottage in the City'....unfortunately I needed to make a sympathy card and this Town Square Bench led me to creating a peaceful park scene with items from Divinity Designs LLC.  The background was sponged with dye inks and sponge daubers, then cut out with the Pierced Rectangles Dies; the bench, bird, lawn, and tree (the tree leaves were also used as a shrub) are from the April Blessings Box. Additional dies used: Matting Rectangle and A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer.

Happy Mother's Day

Hi, everyone!  This week's Ways to Use It Challenge over at Splitcoast is to create a one layer card.  The challenge police may come after me since I already made this card, but had not posted it yet.  I used the 'Pressed Flowers' and sentiment from (unknown name), both from Stampin Up.  For the flowers, I used markers direct-to-stamp, starting with Daffodil Delight in the center, Lovely Lilac on the leaves, Brilliant Blue to highlight the petals, then Old Olive for the greenery.  It took a little bit to do this multiple times, but I love how it turned out and I ended up with NO smudges.....a miracle! :)

Dump Truck Birthday

Hi, everyone!  This week's Sketch Challenge #802 over at Splitcoast was super fun!  I needed a birthday card for my nephew who just turned four and he LOVES any kind of heavy equipment or trucks.  When I saw the 'caution tape' stamp in the 'Dump Truck Birthday' set from Divinity Designs LLC, I knew this was the right set for the sketch layout!  I began by cutting out the background panel with the Pierced Rectangles Dies, the bottom layer with the Matting Rectangle Die, and the card base with the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies.  The caution tape was stamped at an angle, then cut out with a paper trimmer.  Once the strip was cut, I trimmed a bit more from each side so that there would be separation of the sections. The background was sponged over scratch paper masks for the dirt and the Clouds and Raindrops Dies for the clouds; the dump truck was stamped, fussy cut, colored with markers, then popped up with foam tape.  Four balloons (for birthday #4) were cut out with the 'Happy Birthday' Dies set and popped up with foam tape after adding baker's twine.

Inspired by Beauty and the Beast

Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 801
Hi, everyone!  One of my great nieces is obsessed with red roses right now because of Beauty and the Beast, so I used what I had on hand to create a themed birthday card for her. This week's Sketch Challenge #801 over at Splitcoast provided the most perfect layout!  I began by stamping the triple rose image from the 'Rose' stamp set (retired) from Divinity Designs LLC, then fussy cut a single rose, an extra leaf, and an extra rose petal in order to balance the image.  The sentiment is from the 'Beauty' stamp set. The sentiment, background, and image panels were cut with the Pierced Rectangles Dies; the frame was cut with the 'Lavish Layers' Dies; the white mat was cut with the Matting Rectangle Die, the card base was cut with the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies; the yellow panel was dry embossed with the 'Flourishes' embossing folder.  Red grosgrain ribbon was tied with a Bow Easy for the finishing touch.

Howdy, Cowgirl!

Hi, everyone! This week's Color Challenge over at Splitcoast has sunset written all over it!!  Sunset scenes are so fun to create!  I began by sponging/blending pink, orange, and yellow inks onto a white panel and then die cut the Pierced Frames and western scene out of black.  All of the stamps and dies are from the April Blessings Box collection from Divinity Designs LLC.  Some of the layers are popped up with foam tape for dimension.  This card is for my niece's 18th birthday.

Mother's Day Hibiscus

Hi, everyone! It's been a few years, but I am proud to be part of the Sketch Challenge team over at SplitcoastStampers again!!  This week's sketch is number 800....wow!!  If you are a member at Splitcoast and submit a card for the challenge, you could win some cards and other goodies from the Sketch Team, including my card shown here!

When I saw this week's sketch, I knew I wanted to use the Delicate Doily Die and 'Great Faith' Stamp/Die Duo set from Divinity Designs.  After visiting Hawaii twice back in the 90's, tropical flowers just melt me into a big puddle and I'm so in love with this stamp set!! The hibiscus flowers were stamped with Stazon Jet Black, water-colored with several colors of orange and pink, then highlighted with markers. I used a circle die to cut out the center of the doilies.  The 'Mother' sentiment was cut out three times with the 'Family Names 1' Dies set; the background was embossed with the Flourishes Embossing Folder and cut out with the Pierced Rectangles Dies set.
