Scrapbook Page - Hampton Court Palace Gardens

I have been working on a new scrapbook for a trip my husband and I took to London in May.  It has been so much fun to create.  I used a lot of embossing on this page and it's perfect for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week.

I used Paper Smooches Streamers Stamp and coordinating die, Paper Smooches Captured Moments stamps, Paper Smooches Flap Happy Stamp and coordinating die, and Lawn Fawn's Jessie's and Harold's ABCs stamps.  All of these were heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Lawn Fawn Dinosaurs!

I bought Lawn Fawn's Critters from the Past about a month ago and I haven't played with them yet, so I decided to make a fun dinosaur card for OWH.  These were so fun to color and I love how it turned out!

I am entering this card into the Curtain Call Anything Goes Challenge.

And the SugarPea Designs Challenge - You're So Punny.

Curtain Call Challenge

Happy First Birthday to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  I have seen several cards made for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, but I have never participated before.  As this is an anything goes week and I was making a thank you card for a friend, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity.

All of the cards from the Curtain Call Crew are simply amazing! See here.  I wish I had their talent.  Thanks to all the amazing sponsors!

Below is a card made for a friend who was cleaning out some crafty stuff she doesn't use anymore and donated it to me!  Very thoughtful, lots of paper, stamps, and stickers!  I hope she enjoyed the card.

I used an Oriental Weave Cuttlebug embossing folder, Paper Smooches Scripty Sayings, and Lil Inker Designs Stitched Rectangle and Stitched Sentiment Flag.  The stamp is Inkadinkado, colored with Copic markers.

Poppy Sketch #7

I was browsing some blogs the other day when one of them linked to Poppy Sketch #7.  I looked through all the past Poppy Sketches and was inspired to participate.  I made the card last weekend, but I am just now getting around to posting it.

I love the idea of a sketch and another piece of inspiration and have always loved polka dots!  I made this card for Operation Write Home.

Paper Smooches - Anything Goes Challenge

I was creating a card using Operation Write Home's Sketch 231 and ended up changing my mind halfway through.  I really liked the cute little pup that I had leftover so I decided to create another card with it.

I am entering this card into the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge.

I really like how this one turn out.  I hope you like it!

New OWH Card

I created a card using OWH's Sketch Challenge 231.


I love the nice clean lines on this sketch.  I used Paper Smooches Woofers and Tweeters stamps on my card.  I changed my mind halfway through on what image I wanted to use as the main focus.  Originally, it was going to look like this:

I didn't like all the dark space left on the card, so I went another way and my final card is below.  

I will be entering this card into this week's Simon Say Stamp Monday Challenge that is all about WHITE!
