I was at Joann's craft store yesterday and I saw a magazine that had this poinsettia framelit die cut with it as a free gift for buying the magazine. So I bought the magazine just to get the die cut. This is what I used as the flower for my card.
The patterned paper is also from the Papercraft Inspirations website where you can print free papers and other things to make your favorite cards with.
The red ribbon and the yellow brad in the center of my poinsettia was my own idea to give my card an added touch.
I hope you have enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it. May you all have a wonderful and joyous Christmas season.
For those of you who do not know, the reason why I number my cards is because that way I know how many cards I have made since I first started making cards back in 2011. It is also easier for future reference should anyone inquire about a specific card and would like to know more about it.
With that being said, let me tell you about this card...
I chose white, metallic gold and metallic silver cardstocks for the colors. For the bottom half of my card, I used an embossing folder to accent it and then I used a paper piercing tool to accent the border of the top half.
I used metallic silver for the background of my snowflake, which was cut out using my snowflakes #3 die cut. Then I used a metallic gold and white snowflake in the middle to accent the background snowflake.
The first part of my sentiment is from my Handwritten Sentiments clear stamp set and the rest of the sentiment is from my "Twas the night before" clear stamp set. Both are stamped onto my card with silver/grey ink. And to highlight my card, I used a few gems.
This completes my card for this weeks FMS challenge. I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will visit again. As always, your comments are appreciated. May God bless u and may you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas!
I chose a Christmas theme for my card this week. The snow globes, snowman, and small tree are from a clear stamp set I recently purchased at Joann's. After I stamped them onto white paper, I colored them with colored pencils and then I cut the snow globes out and put them on my card.
I stamped the snowman and tree inside the snow globes as well as the snow that is inside the globes. I chose my snowflake swirl embossing folder as a background image behind the globes.
The sentiment is also from my recently purchased Many Thanks Christmas clear stamp set. I used Night of Navy to stamp it inside a Label framelit, which I used to light blue brads to attach it to my card.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog. I know my cards aren't as fancy as everyone else's, however, I am glad you came by just the same. Please come back and visit again. Thanks.
The stamp set that I am using for this card has the clear stamps that came with the matching framelits. So I used chocolate chip ink to stamp the stand and cake before using the matching framelit to cut them out. Then I used double-sided dimensional stickers to adhere them to the card.
I also used chocolate chip ink for the sentiment.
Then I added the Baker's Twine and button for an added look. I hope you will enjoy this card as much as I did making it. Thank you for visiting my blog.
Framelits : Stamp & Cut Butterflies Die Cut Framelits
Other : Yellow Blendabilities marker
Ink : Black
Sentiment : Hexagon Sentiments clear stamp set
Well, it's another week for the Freshly Made Sketches design team and they have put another sketch challenge out there for us to follow. You can find this sketch challenge at http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com.
There is not really anything special that I can say about my card that doesn't already say for itself.
The butterflies are a clear stamp that came with matching die cut framelits. I used black ink to stamp them onto white paper and then I used the matching die cut framelit to cut them out and then I used double-sided dimensional adhesives to adhere them to my card.
The hexagons behind the big butterfly is a clear stamp from my Hexagon Sentiments clear stamp set. I used black ink to stamp it onto my card for a background image. Then I used a yellow blendabilities marker to color in some of the little hexagon shapes to high light them, along with high lighting 2 of the small butterflies.

My card this week is made with White and Night of Navy cardstock.
I recently bought a Stamp & Cuts clear stamps with matching die cuts and I thought this weeks sketch challenge was the perfect time to use it.
I stamped the larger butterfly onto white paper using black ink and then I colored it in using a blue blendabilities marker. Then I used the matching die cut to cut it out. The 2 smaller butterflies were stamped onto white paper using Taken With Teal ink and then cut out using the matching die cut framelit.
The sentiment was stamped on using Taken With Teal ink. Then I added the Baker's Twine to give my card a better look, along with using my paper piercing tool around the edge.

For this weeks FMS challenge, I chose Always Artichoke and white for my colors because I wanted my colors to match with the big butterfly.
I was at Joann's doing some shopping, and they had a package of 10 Labels framelits on sale. Well, I just couldn't resist buying them to use on my cards. So, the scalloped oval and the label framelit for my sentiment is what I chose to use for my card.
I chose a Get Well Soon sentiment from my Brush Stroke Greetings rubber stamp set because I wanted to make a card for my ex-mother-in-law who is in the hospital right now, and I wanted her to know that I am thinking about her.
As for the big butterfly.....well, I just happened to find it at the Dollar Tree and I thought it would look good on a card. The sentiment was stamped on using Always Artichoke ink from Stampin' Up.
I chose to do the final touches with a paper piercing tool and then added the 3 gems.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you will stop by to visit again soon...
I made this card for my 8 yr old niece who is turning 9 on the 17th of this month. Other than my own 2 adult children, Echo is Auntie's little angel....
I took a white doily and sponged on the brown and red inks. The balloons are a wood stamp. I used brown, red, and green inks to stamp them onto white paper and then I cut them out by hand and used toothpicks instead of Baker's Twine for the strings. The Hello Kitty cup cake is a digital image that I printed up and cut out. I used blendability markers to color the cup cake.
Supplies used are :
Cardstock : White, Chocolate brown, Simple Stories paper pack
Ink : Chocolate chip (sentiment), green, red, Close to Cocoa (brown balloon)
Other : toothpicks, chocolate brown ribbon, blendabilities markers, doily

The flowered patterned paper that I used for the background image is from the Studio G patterned paper pack, while the Brown/White striped and the Pink w/white dots that I used for the banners are from the Snap Color Vibe patterned paper pack from Simple Stories.
Then I used a white square bordered with green to put the sentiment and flowers on. I decided to add the Baker's Twine to give my card an added look.

This card is a 5 1/2" x 3 1/2" Tall and skinny card.
I used white for the first layer and embossed it with my honeycomb embossing folder. The long strip for the side image was embossed with a honeycomb border embossing folder onto metallic gold paper and bordered with black paper.
The other background image is a yellow with white dots paper from Snap Color Vibe paper pack from Simple Stories and is bordered with black paper.
I used my Alphabet wood mount stamps for the sentiment and is stamped on with black ink. I added 2 black brads on the side.
The bee, flower, fly, and the "Bzzzzzzz" are from my Outdoor Fun rubber stamp set. I stamped them onto white paper, colored them in with colored pencils, and then cut out by hand. I used double-sided adhesives to attach them to the card.
Then I used silver glitter glue to highlight the wings on the bee and the fly. I used gold glitter glue on the center of the flower to highlight it and make it stand out a little.
I hope you have enjoyed my card as well as your visit to my blog. Please feel free to visit as often as you want to and to join my blog.
Since I don't have any cardstock that is the actual aqua, I substituted with a pastel blue, which is close enough to the aqua color that is required for the challenge.
The strip on the side of the card is from my Light Bright Designer paper pack. I have attached it to a pink marble cardstock to give it a bordered look. This is attached to a white dot embossed cardstock, which is attached to a pastel blue blank card.
For the leaves behind the flowers, I used my Branch w/Leaves die cut, which is cut out on pastel blue cardstock.
The flowers are cut out from my Flowers and Leaves hand punch. I used pastel pink and Always Artichoke paper. Then I used green brads in the centers.
The sentiment is a wood mount stamp that is stamped on with pink ink from Studio G.
