Best Day Ever card

Hello, my awesome crafty friends! I had the best day ever creating this card for Shopping Our Stash Challenge #430 Make a Slimline card measuring 8.5×3.5 inches! I have never made a slim card and now I think I’m in love! There is sooooo much more space to work with than a regular A2 card! I have been saving these cute little “polaroid” embellishments in my stash for quite awhile and just couldn’t use them on an A2 card! Duh! I never thought to make a bigger card — until now!! I was so happy breaking out my copics to color this puppy and I love how it turned out! I hope you like it and meet us at the challenge! I can’t wait to see what you create!!

Girly Friends card

Hi, my friends! Thank you for popping in to see my card for Always Fun Challenges  #182 Die Cutting! As you saw last week, I was on a kick doing girly “Anna Griffin” style cards that I got from a kit at Tuesday Morning. This is another 5×7 card I made from that collection. Of course, I can’t stand to be told what to do so I designed it on my own and added extra things to it! I die cut a piece of gold paper that turned out to have it’s own adhesive on the back which I didn’t realize until I removed it from the die! Hmmm, lucky break! I also dug into my stash and found a big pre-made ribbon that was too big for a regular card (it was from a Kendra Scott gift box) It looks amazing in real life!

I hope to see you at the challenge blog with you die cutting pieces!

Floral Happy Birthday card

Hello, my super crafty friends! It’s time for my card for Always Fun Challenges  #181 Anything Goes! I decided to make a card from a card kit I bought at Tuesday Morning but I cannot do what they want me to do! I have to jazz it up and do it MY way! I wanted to make some cards that were in the “Anna Griffin” style and very girly! Here is one of those cards! I hope you like it and join us for the Anything Goes challenge!

Sweet Birthday card

Hi there! Here is my card for the Shopping Our Stash Challenge #429 at where the challenge is to Make A Mess! Well, if you know me, I hate making messes and getting my hands dirty! I wear gloves when I play with alcohol inks and always have wipes ready to go so that’s what I did with this card! I used my alcohol inks then used the Tim Holts Ranger Alcohol Lift Ink with a background stamp and got this cool background! Please join us for the challenge and see you at the blog!
