Just saying Hello...

Just saying Hello
# 494-2016-02
Well, I finally decided what card to make for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Here is the link to it : http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com

I thought a St. Patrick's Day theme would be good for my card for this week. And since I don't have very much to work with for this holiday, I went to Google images and searched graphics and clipart, which is where I got the pic of the little doggie as well as the bow and the clover.

I added the ribbon at the bottom from my own ribbon collection as well as the sequins. The patterned paper to the right is from a 12 x 12 sheet of St. Patrick's Day scrapbook paper. The sentiment is from my Brush Stroke Greetings Sentiments rubber stamps. I used my scalloped squares framelit die cut for the border behind the little doggie picture. Then I used a 1 inch corner punch for the picture.

I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Mother's Day

# 491-2016-02
It's another week for the MojoMonday challenge and this card makes the 491st card I have made since I first started making cards about 6 yrs ago. 
Here is a link to the MojoMonday challenge : http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com.

And here is a little bit about my card....

I chose a Pink blank card for the main part of my card. On the front, I chose a green color. I'm not sure of what shade of green it is, but I thought it was the perfect shade of green to go with the pink. 
Next, I used my Photo Frame embossing folder to give my background a cool looking border. 

Then I chose some white lace ribbon to go around the main theme with pink brads on the corners. I chose a Mother's Day theme this week. The patterned paper I used is from the Pretty In Pastels and Mum's The Word paper collections that I downloaded and printed up from the Papercraft Inspirations website.
My sentiment is from Mum's The Word. The sentiment is attached to a pink circle and a scalloped circle. I used a circle framelit die cut with pink paper and then I chose the same shade of green with a scalloped circle die cut. All of this put together gives my card kind of a vintage look.

Thank you for stopping by. Comments are welcome and appreciated.

This is another card that I made for this weeks http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com card sketch challenge.

A midnight metallic blue blank card, silver twine, sequins, a metallic silver heart that was cut out using a star framelit die cut, a pink scalloped heart that was cut out using a scalloped heart framelit die cut, and some red heart gems make this card complete. The sentiment is stamped on metallic silver paper with a pink border and with using Night of Navy Stampin' Up ink. I used single alphabet letter rubber stamps for the sentiment. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Love you Valentine...

Love you Valentine
# 489-2016-02
This is my card for this weeks http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com card sketch challenge.

I used an off-white blank card with an off-white cardstock on the front for the background. I used my 1 inch corner punch for the corners and then I used a sponge with red ink to outline the edge to give my card kind of a bordered look.

The pink-inked image behind the heart is a wood-mount stamp, along with the 2 cupid's arrows. The "love you" heart is a clear stamp from my Stamp & Cut Yes set from Hero Arts. I used red ink to stamp it onto white paper and then used the matching die cut framelit to cut it out using my Sissix BigKick machine. I used black ink to stamp the arrows onto white paper and then I cut them out by hand to put them behind my "love you" heart.

The "Valentine" sentiment is from my Holiday Sentiments rubber stamp set, which is stamped on using pink ink and then bordered with red ink.

I added 3 pink scalloped hearts with red gem hearts for an added look. Along with using 3 sequins.

I hope you have enjoyed my card for this weeks challenge. Thank you for stopping by.

# 486-2016-02
Supplies Used : 
Cardstock : White blank card, Perfect Plum, patterned paper from Papercraft Inspirations
(Mum's the Word and Pretty in Pastels)
Sentiment : Papercraft Inspirations
Other : white lace ribbon

Here is my card for this weeks http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com card challenge.

Mother's Day is still 3 months away, however, I just couldn't resist using this gorgeous patterned paper that was a free download from Papercraft Inspirations website.

The names of the 2 patterned papers I used are called "Mum's the Word", which is the flowered paper at the top of my card. The other one is called "Pretty In Pastels", which is the patterned paper at the bottom of my card. Both patterned papers are attached to a Perfect Plum cardstock, giving my card a bordered look.

The sentiment heart was from the "Mum's the Word", along with the little purple strip that lays on top of the bottom of the heart. Using the white lace ribbon was my own idea. I thought it would look nicer than using another patterned paper behind the heart.

Thank you, Narelle, for giving us such an easy layout design for this weeks challenge! It worked perfect for the way I wanted to use these patterned papers.

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving your wonderful comments.. Please come back soon!

# 483-2016-01
Supplies used :
Cardstock : pastel blue, white, patterned paper from papercraft inspirations, pink
Sentiment : Valentine wood mount stamp
Ink : faded jeans from distress inks
Other : Baker's twine, Cool Light Blue Pearl adhesive gems, light blue brads
Tools : Paper piercing tool, scalloped oval framelit, scalloped heart framelit, Stamp and cut flowers clear stamp and framelit.

This card is also posted in this weeks http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com card challenge.

I didn't really say anything in my last card post, so I will say something about this post.

I was looking on Papercraft Inspirations website where they have free downloads for patterned papers and sentiments. I saw this pretty patterned paper, so I printed it up and decided to use it on another card for this weeks card challenge.

I used my patterned paper with a pastel blue blank card. On the front, I used pastel blue with a scalloped oval framelit and then white paper with a labels framelit. If you take a close look, you will see that I used a paper piercing tool on the scalloped oval. I also used 3 light blue brads around the sentiment, which I used faded jeans distress ink and then I colored the word in using a pink colored pencil.

I decided to use a pink scalloped heart behind a stamp and cut flower with a cool light blue pearl adhesive gem along with baker's twine to give my card an added look. I also used the paper piercing tool on the scalloped heart to highlight it as well. 

Thank you for stopping by. Any comments and/or suggestions on how I can improve my cards is greatly appreciated...
