OWH Sketch #95 – Valentine

  • Stamps – Stampington & Company, Christine Adolph collection “Scroll Heart Small” and A Muse Art Stamps “Happy Valentine’s Day”
  • Die Cut – Spellbinder’s Nestabilities “Scalloped Rectangles”

Welcome to my 150th post! I used the current sketch at Operation Write Home – Sketch #95 – to make this card. It is pretty simple and shows off the Valentine heart paper and the scrollwork on the heart stamped image. Thanks for visiting today!

Happy Birthday – Flying Bear

  • Patterned papers – My Mind’s Eye “Lime Twist” collection
  • Die cut – Labels Seventeen
  • Stamp – Cat’s Pajamas “Smells Like Cake” clear set – Happy Birthday

I was inspired by the current sketch at Unscripted Sketches – #132 . I kind of switched it up a little bit, but the concept is definitely there. I used a digital image created by Elephantastic that was provided in the CDAC Freebie Progressive Challenge. Thanks for visiting.

Unscripted Sketches – Sketch #130

  • Patterned papers – BoBunny “Enchanted” collection from their 6″ X 6″ pad
  • Die cuts – Spellbinder’s Nestabilities “Standard Circles” and “Lacey Circles”
  • Stamp – Inky Antics “Thank You”
  • Silver metal stickers – Mark Richards

I was inspired by Unscripted Sketch #130 for this card. I love the paper piecing of this sketch with this BoBunny paper collection. The small print really lends itself to this kind of design. This was another Design Team card for Stampin’ Cat Studio. Thanks for visiting.

Cutest Cat Stamp EVER!

  • Stamp – Stampendous – “Cattus Librum” cling stamp
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny “Enchanted Dots”
  • Border die – Memory Box “Meridian Border”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Ribbon – May Arts

I made this card for Stampin’ Cat Studio to showcase this extremely CUTE cat stamp and the cool BoBunny paper. If you look closely you can see the black glitter on the paper. Very pretty. Lisa is still laughing at me and my reaction to the kitty! Thank you for your visit.

Clean & Simple Sketch #165

  • Stamps – (butterly on right and bottom) Stampington & Company Christine Adolph Series “Shore Cliff Elements”
  • (butterfly on left) Waxing Nostalgia (division of River City Rubber Works) “Butterflies are Free”

  • Patterned papers – K & Company “Jubilee Magenta Accents” and Basic Grey “Boxer: Money Clip” (stamped butterflies on this)
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Button – Bazzill Buttons
  • Ribbon – May Arts

I used the current sketch #165 at Clean & Simple for inspiration for this card. I stamped the butterflies on the Basic Grey paper that had a subtle pattern, cut them out and popped them up for a little dimension. Thanks for stopping by.

Card Positioning Systems – Sketch #242

  • Patterned paper – Best Creations “Travel Forever” (both sides)
  • Butterfly – K & Company – Brenda Walton “Flora and Fauna Butterfly” adhesive chipboard
  • Stamp – Inkadinkado “Happy Birthday”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and Bazill Bling

I used the CPS Sketch #242 to create this birthday card. The 2-sided paper from Best Creations, Inc., worked out well for this and the side with the blue background has glitter imbedded in it. I kept this simple, since the paper design kept the eye going! Thanks for visiting!
