Bella Birthday Card

Hi all!! Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday. This weekend I decided I wanted to make cards using things that I have not used in awhile. So, out came my Cricut, Glitter cardstock, and Stampin' Bella. All things that I love but have been sort of pushed aside lately. I forgot how much I love my Stampin' Bella stamps they are so stinkin' cute.

For this card the theme is black/white with a pop of color. I used DCWV glitter cardstock, stamp from Stampin' Bella, cuttlebug embossing folder, ovals made on the cricut, Martha Stewart border punch, ribbon, glitter glue and flower embellishments. I colored the image using prismacolor watercolor pencils and added glitter glue on the present and hat. I used pop dots to adhere the image to the card for added dimension. I love how it turned out.

The Pink Elephant Challenge #36

This week the theme over at The Pink Elephant is Fall. I love Fall, it is one of my favorite seasons. I love the crisp air, the golden colors, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

For this card I used DCWV patterned paper from their Fall Stack, SU cardstock, Inkadinkado Autumn Greetings stamp set, SU chocolate chip ink, nestabilities, ribbon from my stash, stickles, and prismacolor watercolor pencils. I wanted to add a little dimension to the card so I paper pieced the pumpkin and the leaf.

Hope you are all enjoying your Fall day!!

A Spoon Full of Sugar #71

Thanks to the challenge at A Spoonfull of Sugar, I'm inspired to create christmas cards. I was going through some of my stamps this morning and I found this Poinsettia Stamp by PSX. I wanted to use non-traditional christmas colors, so I decided on pink and gold. It reminds me of a Victorian christmas. I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder and colored it in using watercolor pencils. I used Bazzil bling and SU brushed gold cardstock,SU scallop punch, pink and lace ribbon, cuttlebug embossing folder and pearls. Thanks A Spoonfull of Sugar for inspiring me.

A Spoonfull of Sugar #71

This week's challenge at A Spoonfull of Sugar is to create something in a Christmas theme. I had just purchased a new christmas stamp so off I went to make a christmas card. I really liked the sketch from last weeks challenge (that I didn't have time to join)so I used it for this card. The sketch was a bit challenging for me, but I like how it turned out.

I used Stampin' Up cardstock, DCWV patterned paper, Inkadinkado A Visit from Santa stamp, lace ribbon, prima flowers, and rhinetones.
