Together Forever

I made another card for the Lil Inker Designs Monthly Meet Up Challange: Anything Goes.  This card like the last one will be donated to Operation Write Home.  For this card I used Stitched Mats: Rectangles die, Stitched Hearts die, Stitched Mats: Long and Skinny Rectangles die, Puzzle Pieces dies and the Together Forever sentiment from the Piece of Me stamp set.

Once again I am entering this card into the Monthly Meet Up Challenge

While coming up with an idea for a project for Lil' Inker Designs Monthly Meet Up Challenge, I realized that I apparently have an obsession with their dies.  I have a lot of dies, but only 2 stamp sets!  For the card I used Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles dies, Border Builders Die,  Scattered Sequins Die, and the hello sentiment from Darling Diamonds stamp set.

I am of course entering this into the monthly meet up challenge.

I am also entering this into the Simon Say Stamp Monday Challenge: No Rules.

Wedding Card

We have a wedding to go to next weekend and I finally had time to sit down and create a card.  I started by embossing some white paper with a diamond pattern using my Cuttlebug and embossing folder.  I matted this with a nice gray cardstock.  Next I heat embossed Congratulations on some of the same white paper with Ranger Liquid Platinum.  I matted this sentiment on gray cardstock as well but added a little additional detail with Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Borders scalloped die.  Then I stamped two sets of some roses in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with my Copic markers, cut them out and colored the edges with my memento tuxedo black marker.  I added this around the sentiment and popped them up with some foam squares.  To finish the card off I added some 4mm Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins and some gray enamel dots at the center of some of the diamonds.

I am entering this card into MarkerPop's Anything Goes Challenge #62.

So Busy

I've been super busy lately with work and getting our house ready to put on the market that I haven't had a lot of time to craft.  I've had a card idea stuck in my head for 4-5 days and I finally had a little time to make it.  I used Paper Smooches Lots of Love stamps to create the background by stamping the large X & O in Distress Ink Spun Sugar.  Next I cut out all of the critters from Paper Smooches Zoo Crew using the coordinating dies and then stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored each of the zoo crew animals with Copic markers.  I cut out the background with Mama Elephants scalloped border creative cuts and then I cut out an oval in the center using Lil Inker Designs Stitched Mats Ovals.  I arranged each of the critters in the window created by the oval.  I cut out a banner using Paper Smooches Banner Die and then stamped its coordinating stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The sentiment was created with the heart from Paper Smooches Zoo Crew and the letters are from Paper Smooches Mini Monograms, also white heat embossed.  To finish the card off I mounted everything on gray paper and added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins.  I hope you enjoy it!
