Freshly Made Sketches

I decided to play along with Freshly Made Sketches this week.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card.

The card base is off white card stock.  The rest of the papers all came from the We R Memory Keepers kit which I spoke about in my previous post.  The butterfly stamp and sentiment are both from Verve - So Fluttery.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark - Cinnamon.  I heat embossed the butterfly with Stampendous embossing powder - Red Dragon - love the glitter in this embossing powder.  I fussy cut the butterfly and  popped it up with foam dots onto the EK Success punched label.  The ribbon is from Walmart and the bling is from K  and Co. which I bought  at Michaels.  I really like this bright and springy card.  I am listening to the weather right now and they are calling for freezing rain.  It snowed earlier today and if I ever get my hands on that d*mn groundhog, he is going to wish he was never born!  LOL

Some more cards I made for my stash

Here are some more cards I made recently:

I love this Easter card.  The stamp is from Your Next Stamp.  I punched the butterfly using a Martha Stewart punch.  I love the egg ribbon I used.  I also used a Fiskars scallop edge punch on this card.  

The design paper is from a 6 x 6 paper pad from First Edition - Dream Catcher.  I love the First Edition paper pads as some of the paper has glitter.  I love me some glitter!  Butterfly was cut with a Martha Stewart punch.  Ribbon is from my stash.

This particular card used paper from We R Memory Keepers Simply Spring Paper Pack.  I got it through the Craft Channel for an awesome low price.  On the plus side, it came in its own storage container.  The kit contains 48 double sided patterned papers, 6 embossed tags (1 of which I used as my focal point), 6 textured cardstock papers as well as a full sheet of embossed stickers.  I love the cheery colours in this kit!

Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Monthly kits - 2 Cards I've cased.

I get the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Monthly kits and am loving them.  Taylored Expressions has a photo gallery for each kit and that is where I get my inspiration to make cards with the kits.  For this month they had a blog hop and 2 cards caught my eye so I decided to CASE (Copy & Share Everything) them both.  Here is the 1st card I cased.  And here is my interpretation:

I heat embossed the image and used a heart scallop circle die from Spellbinders.  I also used a pink button from my stash but everything else is basically the same as Tracy's card.

Here is the 2nd card I cased.  Here is my interpretation of Amy's card:

I didn't have a telephone stamp so decided to use a sentiment.  I also chose to use some flat back gold coloured pearls instead of the ribbon.  The sentiment is stamped on a die from Spellbinders.  I was very pleased with how these 2 cards came out.

Seize the Birthday

I really like this week's Seize the Birthday Sketch so I decided to play along.  Here is the sketch:

Here is the card I made:

This week's challenge was to make a feminine card.  The card stock, ribbon, doily and pearls are from my stash.  The design paper is from  a 6 x 6 Docrafts paper pad - Lucy Cromwell.  I love this pad and have 2 of them.  I am sure that I will be using it quite a bit as the papers are gorgeous.

Been a while

Since I posted!  I've made 9 cards that I have not taken photos of yet as my camera needs new batteries.  I am hoping to rectify that tomorrow.  3 of the cards are at my daughter's house so I will need to take my camera there soon.

Thanks for stopping by!
