Card Recognition

Monday, March 19, 2018


Playing along with this week's PTI Make It Monday, embossing enamel splatters.  I went for a slightly different version and used the chunky embossing powder on the stamps for the balloons.  I guess I could add some splatters... but I made enough of a mess with the glitter.

thanks and more

Happy Sunday.  I was inspired by the Muse Challenge and then ended up basically remaking this card, but opted to heat emboss the flower with vellum for a softer look.  It also works for the Where Creativity Meets C9 sketch.  My second project is too busy for me, but sometimes it's good for me to stretch myself.  I'm playing along with the MFT Birthday Challenge, make an interactive gift card holder.

rain & sunshine

Happy Saturday crafty peeps!  We are having the craziest winter weather here- definitely a bit of rain, sunshine, hail and snow.   I am procrastinating from cleaning... so here are three cards based on 3 different challenges.  The first card is for the Fusion Challenge, I used both the sketch and inspirational photo.  My second card is for the Viva la Verve Sketch.  And my third card is for CAS(E) this sketch.  Happy St. Patrick's Day-- while I'm not currently planning on anything, here's a list of things to do in our area.

Happy Birthday

The Time Out Challenge is having their 4th birthday so I made a CAS card with 4 balloons!  I combined a Concord & 9th sentiment with the Lil Inker balloon and stitch dies.

you can't buy happiness....

I made this card this morning (while drinking coffee) and here it is the END of the day and I'm finally posting it (while no longer drinking coffee).  Playing along with the MFT Sketch, I paired a MFT coffee cup and die with an Altenew sentiment and Verve die cut, some patterned paper from my stash and some MFT dies.  My second card is for the CASology "bug" challenge.  Clean and simple with Flora and Fauna stamps.

Let's Have Adventures Under the Stars

Happy Tuesday crafty peeps!  I'm playing along with the SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge, using the inspiration photo and some SugarPea stamps and dies.  I've mentioned this before, but it's definitely time to stock up the camp store at the campground with more camping cards (if you see 10 coffee cards in a row you can remind me of that).  And I'm always on the look out for more camping/RVing stamps sets...

thank you for you and congrats

My first card is for the new Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge, a sketch.  I went for simple and scored the base for the background.  I combined the Concord & 9th flower stamp with a PTI sentiment.  My butterfly card is inspired by Melissa's card on the latest PTI release, so I'm playing along with the Create Along Us Challenge.  Happy Monday crafty peeps, I'm off to tackle another full week of to dos.

let's chat

This week's CASology Challenge was "Abstract" which is an interesting cue word for a CAS challenge.  So I pulled out an old Hero Arts set and the Concord & 9th "Let's Chat" set and made a card that had a bit of random background stamping off center.  And my second card was another attempt at the CAS(E) This Sketch, using the PTI sentiment and more stamps from the Hero Arts set.

birthday and coffee....

Birthday balloons....  I'm not sure I like this card... but that's the way it goes sometimes.  I'm playing along with the CAS(E) This Sketch and MFT Color Challenges.  I think it's the colors...  My card below is up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today.
