I love ants mini cards

Hey there, fellow crafters! This is my contribution to the Always Fun Challenges Challenge #53 Anything Goes! I bought these small cards at Target like a hundred years ago and couldn’t find a way to use them that made me happy – until now! I was standing in my craft closet and saw the ants in the “Small Talk” stamp set by Mama Elephant and thought, “Hey, these cuties would look great on those tiny cards I bought at Target like a hundred years ago!” So, here they are and I hope you like them too!

Naughty or Nice Challenge #50 – So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish!

Well, they do say that all things come to an end – even really good things like The Naughty or Nice Challenges. Yes, the troublemakers are hanging up their stamps, stencils and cardstock, but not before saying a very big thank you to everyone who has joined our challenges and made this blog so much fun!
This is our 50th Challenge, so we’d love it if as many of you as possible could play along one more time (or a few more times even!) and help us go out with a bang!
For Challenge #50 we’d like you to take a last wander through the blog and find inspiration in one or more of our past themes. Don’t forget to tell us which challenge inspired you and please spread the word across Blogland as we’d love a good turn-out for this, our final challenge.  Plus, there are  prizes to be had!
Here is my card for the challenge. It was inspired by NON13: It ain’t easy being green

Happy Birthday, Let’s Celebrate, Time To Party card

Hi, stampers! I’m back with my Design Team card for Always Fun Challenges Challenge #52 Happy Birthday! Wow! Great challenge! I always need birthday cards! You probably do too so I hope you join us for the challenge this week!

For this card, I took a cheapo stamp set I bought at a big box store and stamped it without taking any of the stamps off the page! I just inked it up and stamped on the card! Then I heat embossed it and blended Distress Ink all over the background! Super easy but I think it turned out great! I look forward to seeing what you make!

Hello Sunshine card

Hello, my sunshiney friends! (or however you spell that!) This was a fun challenge for Shopping Our Stash  Challenge #347 – Use NO ink! Ok, Ok. I fudged a little because I had to use yellow ink on the background since I didn’t have any good background paper with me at a weekend crop! But everything else were puffy stickers I bought from the clearance rack at a big box store! So cute!! I hope you take the No ink challenge! I want to see what you create!

For Some Bunny Special card

Hey there, stamping friends! I’m back with a Design Team card for Always Fun Challenges Challenge #51 – Easter! I found these egg stickers at a big box store so I cheated! I could have made the eggs out of patterned paper and clear embossed it but why re-invent the wheel? I spent a dollar and got two cards out of the stickers!! Come join in on the fun and link up your own Easter card!

For the background I used an air spritzer and Copic markers!
