I *Heart* U

Hello everyone,

I wanted to play along with CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog this week, because I love the look of CAS cards. Its almost two years ago I entered one of my cards into one of their challenge and I received a honorable mention for it. That was my last card posted two years ago. Click Here to see that post. Click Here to see their post.

My card is perfect for Valentine's Day. I wanted my little red heart to pop so I used mostly white. 

I really liked my card but I wanted to make it a little more interesting so I add a little splash of color in the background and a couple of sequins for a little sparkle. 

I quite like how it turned out and my little red heart is still stands out. 
I am entering it into CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #108

What was used:
Cricut/Close To My Heart Artbooking cartridge
Cricut/Close To My Heart Art Philosophy
Darice Chevron Embossing Folder
Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set
My Favorite Things/ Die-Namics Sequins Die Set
Tsukineko Brillance Pigment Ink Rocket Red

I hope you enjoy my card. Let me know what you think about it; Did it need the added touches or not?

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone,

Its been almost two years since my last post! I had to take a break because of obligations with my children school. A lot has happened and we have moved homes yet again. At least it wasn't across country like the last time. Now I am settled into our new home and I am ready to get back to my blog.  Bring on the challenges. Let me know what your favorite challenges now.

For my return post I made a Hello card. I used a few of my new die purchases for it and I must say I love how it turned out. I also love how it screams bring on spring! I thinking of you all, my East Coast friends.

I am entering this card in to:

As You Like it Challenge - Favorite Matt or Shiny and why.  I use way more matt paper in my crafting, I think shiny can detract from a main image. I sometimes like to add shiny accents to my projects.

Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello Die
Lawn Fawn Speech Bubble Border Die

CTO Challenge #93: Christmas! Anything Goes

Hello everyone,

Its time for another Christmas challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion. This week were are taking some of the stress of and just want you to share those beautiful cards or projects. Anything Goes!

This is also my last project as part of the CTO design team. I have been so lucky to have worked with such talented ladies, thanks for the inspiration ladies.

For my project this week I made two versions of the same card. I can't decide which one I like better.

I will be linking this card to CAS(E) this Sketch because it works perfectly for their challenge this week.

The ornaments were made using  a Stampin' Up stamp set and framelits dies. I just love this set! I took a class with my SU demonstrator to make a this gorgeous ornament using the set. It took 2.5 hours but totally worth it!

Isn't it just beautiful!

Stampin' Up Ornament Keepsakes Stamps
