Play Date Cafe challenge 137: take 4!

Here is my 4th entry for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge.






I really love this card.
I stamped the butterflies, inking them in both black and blue before I stamped them.
Then I stamped the sentiment.

Play Date Cafe challenge 137: 3rd entry

Here is my 3rd entry for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge.







I stamped all those pretty butterflies, the black ones first, and then the little blue ones. I think I stamped the sentiment first of everything?

Play Date Cafe 137

Here is my first entry for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge.





I stamped the butterflies and the sentiment. Very CAS. The sentiment says "spread your wings and fly." I hope you can read it.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors this week. Super pretty, and since blue is my favorite color, I just love it even more!

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday 72: first card

Hello! Here is a card for this week's PTI Make It Monday. This week it is Step it Up-Embellishments.





I hope the butterflies count as embellishments, but since I only own 3 PTI sets, two of them the $5.00 sets, this is what I worked out. I LOVE the way this card turned out. A CAS card, which is my style, even though I "drift" into other styles sometimes. 
For this card, I stamped the butterflies on some patterned paper, then did a lot of fussy cutting! 
After they were all cut out, (4 butterflies to make one) I adhered them together, also "fluffing" them out so you could see the layers. 
Then I adhered them to the card, and stamped the sentiment and "fluffed" the butterflies again. 

The butterflies are from PTI's Butterfly Dreams set, and the sentiment is from PTI's Think Big Favorites #2.

PTI June Blog Hop

I was able to make some cards today for Papertrey Ink's June Blog Hop!

Here was the inspiration:









This is for Dawn's birthday...a virtual birthday card! Happy Birthday Dawn! 



The cards aren't in order of how I made them.
Oh, and the way the colors look in the photos aren't really what the cards look like. The "blue" in some of them is actually turquoise! 
I did lots of stamping, which I LOVE to do!  I made all these cards today. I love the first card...very CAS. On the 4th card, I did some masking, which I have been doing more lately. 
I couldn't stop playing with my PTI Butterfly Dreams set today! I bought it used and Sunday and today was the first I got to play with it! I barely made any cards today that didn't include something from it! 


I went to the doctor today, and they think I have strep throat. I am now taking something for it, and in 24 hours I shouldn't be contagious. I kinda had to stay away from everyone today, so I went in my room/studio and crafted away, though at about one or so, maybe later, I rested for a bit while watching something, but I fell asleep, and didn't wake up until five! I actually thought I had slept the whole night and that it was the next morning! 



Jesus saves!

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday 71: 2nd entry

Hello...and good afternoon. How has your weekend been? I have another entry for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday. This week is bordered sentiments.




I masked three times on this card....first for the area where the sentiment will be, then for outside the sentiment area, and also for the sentiment.
So, first I stamped the dot border, then the sentiment and masked it and the area outside the dots, and stamped the circles. Then I masked the sentiment area inside the dots, and stamped the flowers.

I'm feeling better now, but my throat is bothering me. Lord-willing I should be up again soon. I hope tomorrow. 

Have a wonderful day!

Runway Inspired Challenge 14: take 2

Here is my 2nd entry for the current Runway Inspired challenge.






I was inspired by the colors on the shoe.
I stamped the butterflies and that is pretty much it. No sentiment on this card!
This card reminded me of something Maile Bells would make. (but of course, not as good as any of her  work) 

Have a wonderful weekend and coming week!

oh, and just something I want to say that I've forgotten to do:
last week I left a comment on Virginia Lu's blog for her CAS-ual Fridays post (the vellum and acetate challenge) and I mentioned that I didn't have any vellum or acetate for the challenge, but would try to find something. Well, she e-mailed me and told me where to find acetate...my clear stamp sheets! 
So, thank you SO much Virginia!

Runway Inspired Challenge 14

Hello! I hope you're enjoying the weekend! I am actually sick. :( I was looking forward to playing with some PTI stamps I bought, but I won't be able too now. Here is my first entry for the current Runway Inspired challenge.






I was inspired by the colors on the shoe.
I did lots of masking on this card...its not wonderful masking, I know, but it'll do.
I stamped the roses, masking as I went. I also masked the sentiment.
This is my first time entering the Runway Inspired challenge.
I made another card for the challenge I'll post sometime, but next up today I have a card for this week's Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday.

CAS-ual Fridays: Clear as Day (another entry)

Here is another entry for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge...





I think this is just about how CAS a card can get.

I made the card, punched the butterfly, adhered it and stamped the sentiment.

CAS-ual Fridays: Clear as Day (3rd entry)

Hello everyone! Here is another entry for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge.



I stamped the pretty flowers (from Papertrey Ink) on the acetate sheet and stamped the sentiment and I  also inked around the edges and added a gem.

Yesterday we went to my best friends house, (William and Emma) and one of Will's friends who is a lot of fun, Jacob, was over there too. We did some Lord of the Rings trading card stuff, and ate lunch and then cooled off with a big water battle! We used their hose and some jugs which could be filled up and then dumped on each other! Lots of fun and it was a good way to cool off, since they don't have air conditioning. Then after we dried off and stuff, we played a bit of Lord of the Rings monopoly, but we didn't finish the game since we had to leave.  I had SO much fun :)

Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search...

I made two cards for this month's Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search...





 I did quite a bit of paper piecing on the first card and masking on the second.
