Buncha' cards

So I made a few more cards for the Craft Fair next weekend, I'm getting really excited for it!  The first card below is a layout that I found on Clean & Simple Stamping's blog, I have found quite a few layouts on there that I want to try!  It didn't take me too long and I love when I get to use my sewing machine....The second card, I used my new Unity Stamp that I got at Right at Home on Sunday, love this stamp and can't wait to use it some more.  The third card is very simple; I saw the layout in a card magazine (yes, those exist) and I loved it so much I had to try it myself.

Supplies used:
Card 1 - Made this a while ago and I can't remember!
Card 2 - Paper - Cosmo Cricket - Garden Variety; Stamp - Unity -jillibean soup Strawberry; Ink - VersaMark Watermark & Perfect Pearls - Forever Red; Red Bakers Twine; Tape Gun; 3D Foam Squares;
Card 3 - Paper - PTI Cardstock; Stamps - Joann's; Buttons - Joann's; Assorted Twines; Glue Dots

Usin' Perfect Pearls

This was a pretty simple card, I took a few ideas from other blogs and used a new technique that I haven't used yet on any of my cards.  I just made the 3-D butterfly by punching out a few and gluing them together and bending them.  The sentiment was stamped on with VersaMark and then I used Perfect Pearls for the first time to give it a shimmery look!

Supplies used:
Paper - PTI Cardstock - Berry Sorbet; Cosmo Cricket - Girl Friday:Saturday & Girl Friday: Monday
Punch- EK Success Butterfly
Stamp - Joann's
Ink - VersaMark Watermark; Perfect Pearls - Forever Red
Accents - Self Adhesive Red Pearls - AC Moore
Tape Gun, Paint Brush, Tweezers

Makin' Spring Cards

So in honor of the new season, I took a Spring Cards class at RAH with Kendra & Jess.  We had a great time and I learned a lot of new techniques that I am definitely going to bring to my cards, so I'm super psyched about that! The layouts for these cards were given to us at the start of the class and then we stamped, colored with Copics (drooling over these markers, wish they weren't so expensive!), sprayed some glimmer mists and used some Stickles!  So the ribbons provided were white rayon ribbons and they are dyed with glimmer mists, which was way easier to use than I expected and it just opened up a whole new world for me.  Enjoy!

Mojoin' #182

Just finished Mojo Challenge #182, I really liked this sketch a lot and will probably use it again soon!

Sketchin' (#79)

So thanks to Jess, I entered the Get Sketchy weekly challenge, here is what I came up with!  I really like doing these weekly challenges because it helps me break out of my usual layout.

Babyin' seems like everyone I know is having babies and I've been making a lot of baby cards lately, so when I found this chipboard set with the spice containers all I could think of was 'Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice' and couldn't wait to put it on a card!

This card was made for Mojo Monday Challenge #180.  I was really looking for a reason to use these papers, they are from October Afternoon, one of my favorite papers to buy & use!  It took me forever to thread those 2 x's on the flag, but overall I am happy with how it came out.


So I started my own Etsy page to go along with me Blog, you should be able to see the gadget on the right side of the screen.  If not, you can see it here !

That's it for now...I need to go work on the next Mojo challenge!
