Masculine Floral

I took the PapertreyInk Challenge this week to make a masculine floral card. It was perfect timing as I had to make a birthday card for my nephew and I just got the sunflower cutting plate in the mail. So excited to use it. I hope my nephew doesn't think it's too flowery.

This week I played along with PTI and for their challenge lifted from this card made by Maile Belles. I just loved the look of the gold on craft. I didn't have a good gold ink so I used Versamark to ink and then went over it with my gold Perfect Pearls.

Sketch Challenge

This week I used the Share Joy challenge to make two cards. I wanted to send a card to my son who plays football in college and I needed a card for a friend who is retiring from the National Guard after 30 years of service. It was fun to use the sketch for two very different cards.

Bowl of Cherries

This week I took the PaperTrey Ink challenge of strip grounding your sentiment. I just got this stamp set so it was new to me and I was very excited to ink it up. It's called "A Second Helping of Sunshine". I just love that name. I used glossy accents on the cherries. I can't wait to make another card using the pears in the bowl.

You Eat What?

I just love puns and this new stamp set from Taylored Expressions called "If Cows Could Talk" makes me laugh. When I saw the sketch all I could think about was a fence. So here is my cow card.

New Home

I played along with the Share Joy challenge this week and used the sketch to make this card. I just love pineapples and this new set is so cute with lots of fun sentiments. Pineapples are a sign of welcoming someone home so I made this card for my parents who are moving to a new house this week. I added the string behind the pineapple, but it's hard to see.

Oh My Quad!

I made this card for the Share Joy Challenge. I went with the color challenge because I just bought all the new Talyored Expression inks and wanted to use them. I used: lollipop, candy corn, lemon, and granny smith inks.This is also one of the new planner stamp sets and I just think it is so cute. It's called Oh My Quad. I made it to send to my walking partner to thank her for motivating me to keep going. We go about 5 miles when we walk together so that is why I put a 5 in the sign. simple but fast.
