Sending Happy Thoughts

Hi all!  Here's my card using the MFTWSC191 sketch and the Color Throwdown #307 color challenge.  The sentiment is from an older MFT set.  I used several elements from a few Blueprints for all my layers (1, 3 and 13 to be exact!).  The feathers are from the LLD Accent It - Feathers and Arrows die-namics (love these!  Thanks, Karen!!!)  A few YNS ivory gumdrops finish up the details. (um, they're ON SALE, so go like, grab them ALL!)

Retro Happy Birthday

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the Reverse Confetti August Color Challenge.  I used the dotted lemon image from the Fresh n' Fruity set to create this cool retro background (at least retro to me!).  I alternated between the fully inked image then overlapped it with one stamped off once.  I added a couple of the Diagonal Stripe Pretty Panels dies, one in nightshift navy.  The sentiment is from their Lots to Say set and was embossed with gold EP.  A few gold enamel dots finish it up.

Let's Celebrate!

Hi all!  We wanted to finish off our birthday month with a bang so welcome to our YNS Birthday blog hop!  Here's my card using the newly released Martini Birds stamp set!  I colored them with Copics and added some stickles to the little umbrella.  The sentiment, also from the set, was cut out using one of the 3D Banner dies.  I stamped the confetti stamp in the set in grapesicle ink to create the background.  I added more stickles to a strip of card stock and some blingy brads (they're purple in case you can't tell) for added sparkle!  The card base is pool party and I used Blu Raspberry for the layering.  I like this sentiment because it covers a variety of events - from birthdays to promotions and several things in between!

And guess what?!  Our sale is still going on so take advantage and get yourself some goodies!!!

Happy Birthday - Moxie Fab style

Hi all!  Yep, second post for the day!  I just couldn't pass up the Moxie Fab challenge this week!  I think my inspiration is obvious - I used a woodgrain designer paper for my backdrop, then added pops of color.  I also tried the current 'messy thread' trend for the first time.  Fun, but the perfectionist that I am, I still had to get it just right.  :)

When life hands you lemons...

Hi all!  I wanted to share this card I made for one of the Dare To Get Dirty challenges a couple of weeks ago.  I used this super fun set from Reverse Confetti called Fresh n' Fruity.  I used the matching Confetti Cuts to cut out the lemons and leaves.  That diagonal cut out behind the lemons is the Diagonal Stripe Pretty Panels die.  It's so stinkin' cute!  It's cut out with sour apple card stock, then I added a thin layer of distress crackle paint.  I wish all of my card could come together as easily as this one did!  ;)

YNS Fun Friday - Hello Sunshine!

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  I'm super thankful for THIS particular Friday because that means we have gotten through our first week of school here in OK!  Phew!  One down, how many to go, lol??  Anywho, here's my card for our current YNS Challenge.  I used that yummy inspiration picture for my card.  Here's Tobi Watering Rose digital stamp, which I colored with Copics.  The sketch is the SSSC232.  I broke out some old, unloved SU card stock for this card.  I have it, why not use it, right?!  That's my goal these days!  Plus, these colors went so well with the challenge!  Many different shades of purple here!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to play along with us for a chance to WIN!!!

A Paper Smooches Happy Birthday

Hi all!  Here's a fun card I made for the Paper Smooches guest designer search.  The Wish Big and Happy Birthday are both from their Birthday Sampler set.  The trio of flowers are from their selection of FREE Digi stamps!  How cute, right?  And free?!!!  Sah-weet!  I colored them with Copics then fussy cut them.  I cut the sentiment out with my pierced circle STAX.  The stitched lines add a little more interest to the background layer.  The 'Wish Big' sentiment was stamped in insulation pink for a tone on tone look.
