Lawnscaping 124

Hi Friends, I'm here to share a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge 124 -Celebration! Super simple, just cute stamps from the Party Animals stamps set colored with Copics and layered with form tape on a distress-inked piece of water color paper. The mat was die cut with a lil inker stitched rectangle die. Some tiny silver star sequins was added as well.

Hey Friends, Happy Friday! Here's my "berries" card for Merry Monday 192. I used Hero Arts Mistletoe stamp set for this one, stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. I added red sequins for the berries. The sentiment is from the same set. 

I flipped the Tuesday Morning Sketch for the layout and added a Darice bakers twine bow. I hope to share some more cards this weekend so stay tuned! :)

MM434 & SSS Card Kit

Hi Friends, I have some cards to share today. The first is made with supplies from the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit and Mojo Monday 434 sketch. The kit has some great stamps, papers and stickers and makes card making a breeze! This is for my daughter. we're having the kids and grandson over for dinner tonight so I'll have Valentine cards for all. :)

Crafty Calendar Challenge-Love is in the Air

 This card is for my husband so I used more masculine supplies from the kit. Very simple, just a die cut heart shaker with papers, stickers and sequins from the kit. 

And for my Grandson Calvin, I used Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After to add an adorable dragon to my card as well as some hearts and stars from the same set. The sentiment is from SSS card kit. Papers are Lawn Fawn.
Thanks for visiting.

SSS-One Layer

Hi Friends, I have a card to share that I made for a challenge at my Local Card Club last week. The challenge was "One Layer" which happens to be this week's theme at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. I used THIS set, Hero Arts With Sympathy set. The border stamp is from another set but can't recall which one right now. 

This is truly one layer, it's a piece of watercolor paper cut to 4.5 x 11, scored in half. I made a circle mask and sponged 2 distress inks inside then stamped the image one with the mask on and once with it off. I added some PPP sparkling clear sequins and some May Arts twine. 

I'm not a fan of one layer but when I make one (under duress) I usually like it. :)

Hi Friends, I'm here with my Santa card for Merry Monday Challenge 190! I used my cute Santa from SSS/Clearly Besotted Winter Friends.

 I also used a SSS Peace Love and Joy set for the sentiment. Other items used are BG Jovial paper, holly punch, LF stitched square dies, LID rectangle die, Doodlebug sequins, Copic markers and recollections gems. 

So I'm working on this year's Christmas card stash. It was great to have so many cards to mail last December.
