Some things older but new to all of you!

16 Mar
Do you wonder what  my title means?
Well I just realized, I have 3 cards that I have made for Cheery Lynn Designs and I have never blogged about them here yet.
So you are going to get a treat today since I am sharing 3 for the blog post of 1!
I made these cards as submissions to a publication.  Two of these got chosen, so I was very excited!  The publication has come and gone, so I am sharing these now.
This was a card I made for the Easter holiday.
I just love the background on this.
I used the Wittle Weavers and Stitcher Plate Large Circle for the background.
The “sun” was made from the Sunflower and Scalloped Circle Dies.
 The “sun” was made from the Sunflower and Scalloped Circle Dies.
The butterflies are made from Exotic Butterflies Small 2 dies.
I love using those Wittle Weaver’s for the background of cards.
 This card was made for a theme called Haberdashery and Dress Making.
I used the Wood Grain Embossing Plate for the background.
The dress is made from layers of paper cut with the Anastasia Border.  Behind the dress I used the Ribbon Eyelet Border and Buttons 1.
 Lastly I used the scallops from the Border Carnival for my corners and also used the following dies to finish off this card.  Optimistic Font 1/2″, Pretty Petals and Zig Zag Ric Rac.
Lastly I have this simple but elegant card!  Oh and it happens to match our current challenge which is Add A Flourish.  Have you entered yet?
For this card, I used my favorite embossing plate, Black Eyed Susans.
I also used the following dies on this card:  Zig Zag Ric RacRibbon Eyelet Border, Fanciful Flourish and Medium Rose.
So there you go, 3 cards that would be perfect for holidays we have coming up!
Easter April 8th.
Mothers Day May 13th.
National Sewing Day July, 17th.
Once again, be sure to check out the details to our Add A Flourish challenge, HERE.

Sweet Stamps goes Back to School

30 Aug

It is Tuesday which means….It is time to issue another Sweet  Stamps Challenge.

This week we are challenging you with a sketch.

Here it is.

On my card today I have used the very fun stamp called:

Umbrella 244.

You know I love to paper piece and today’ s card is proof.

I have used paper from the Authentique Paper line called Blissful.  You can see all the products for this line here.

For my apples, I just used a heart punch and cut the bottoms off to make them look like apples.

Well, what do you think?  I am rather excited how it turned out, sometimes sketches make me nervous, but not this time!

Now it is your turn!  Head on over to the Sweet Stamps blog and play along with us!

As always you will be playing to win a $20.00 Sweet Stamps.com Gift Certificate!

Have a great Tuesday!




Sweet Stamp – Challenge #29 “White on White”

23 Aug

A new week means a new challenge!!! This week on the Sweet Stamps blog our new challenge is called “White on White.”

Here is what I came up with.

For this card I used the following items from the Sweet Stamp.com store.

Daisy Duo

Firewheel Duo

You are Loved

Slotted Flower Dies

Tropical Flourish

Tropical Leaves

XL Scalloped Circles

I started out with a Scalloped Circle card base.

On the card base, I started making different layers with the flowers, flourish etc.

The above picture is a close up of the tiny glass beads I attached to the middle of these flowers.

For the “White on White” challenge, you can only use WHITE paper and the only color can be in your ink.

If you are up for the challenge, come on over and join us.


Maybe you could be the winner of the $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet Stamps.com that one random person will win.





I stumbled upon this the other day….

25 Sep

What a fun website!  Check out http://tuesdaytrio.blogspot.com/. This website assigns challenges and it is a bilingual site.  I think that makes it all the more challenging.  You are sort of  “competing” with people with an entirely.  different style, not to mention a world of different supplies on hand, I would assume.  So, I am up for the challenge.  I think it would be awesome to work with people from a different country.  Here is the sketch for the challenge.  They are looking for Design Team member and I have to participate in 3 of 4 assigned challenges.  I missed the 1st, because I only found the site 2 days ago, and barely made this deadline.  But, here is the sketch for Sketch #34.

In addition to the Sketch, they also give you a bonus item to increase the challenge.  The challenge for Sketch # 34 was…….BUTTONS!!!!!  Could anything be more fun than buttons??  So, without further ado, here is my card..as usual, I am posting multiple pics, because I can’t ever decide on just one!  Let me know what you think?  Especially go to the website and see what other did for the sketch!  Have a great weekend!!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I am off to try to have a great one!!  More, next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!
