Today's SCS WT532 challenge was to use red and white only to honor the founding of the Red Cross.  I used this new to me Spellbinders Card Creator Card Front die which cuts and embosses the white part of this card.  I layered it over a red cardbase.  I die cut the "love" sentiment with Winnie & Walters Cutaway three times and glued them together for dimension.

Watercolored Poppies

This card was created for the SCS sketch challenge.  I used my Koi water colors to paint these Penny Black poppies.

It's Your Day

I wanted to play along with the Mix It Up Challenge on Ellen Hutson's The Classroom blog.  The challenge is to use products from Essentials by Ellen and from Avery Elle.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Avery Elle and the rest of the stamped images are from Essentials by Ellen.  I used the colors from the SCS color challenge for this week.

Live It Up!

I finally got some time to make a card!  This was made for several challenges on SCS and for the AAA Card Challenge - celebrating their 1st birthday:

I used the Sizzix Balloon Side Step Framelit set to make this card.  The bicycle die cut is from Memory Box.  The sentiment is from a Penny Black set.

I am linking this up to the BD party Kylie set up for Sandie Munroe - one of my CAS teamies!  Happy Birthday Sandie!!

Fabulous Birthday

Here is another Penny Black Brush Strokes stamp.  I used the colors from the SCS color challenge: Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango.  I colored the image with SU and memento markers, spritzed it with water and stamped it onto the white card stock.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Wow I haven't posted here in over a week!  Life has been so busy and I have taken a few minutes here and there and tried to create some cards!  I got some new Penny Black brush stroke images a while ago and am just now getting to them.  They are large and beautiful images!  I used Distress Ink markers directly on the rubber, misted it with water and then stamped the image onto the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I cut the image panel with PaperTrey's Tip Tops die and matted it with PaperTrey card stock.
