White Folded Flowers

Good afternoon, wow the wind sure has been flying today.  I think my neighbor just blew by.  Wicked, and the weather has sure been interesting lately.  Thanks for stopping here today, my card I am sharing with you is one I made this weekend at my friend Tamie's place. 
We got crafty in her craft room for real, no cyber crafting this weekend, it was so awesome.  She has these huge white flowers and I love playing with them, so I snagged a few, and started playing, folding the bigger one in half, and then continuing on with the next sizes.  I used a punch for the leaves, and then added some ribbon to the window box I made.  Decided no sentiment was needed this time.  I wish I could take a better picture, because I used clear Wink of Stella brush on the petals of the white flowers, so awesome.   Thanks again Tamie, for letting me get crafty in your room, and in person, was so fun.  Till next time, I hope you get your craft groove on.

So glad you stopped by to check out what I am creating today.  My friend Tamie and I have been challenging each other using the From My Heart Stamps, and the i {heart} sketches challenge.  They have wonderful stamps and fun challenges.  The sketch I am using is fun, the twist is to use warm colors(warm reds, oranges, yellows), love these colors.  The image is called Whimsy Garden Fence.
I hope you get over and play this challenge and do go over to From The Heart Stamps, they are so super cute, and always new ones to create with.
I had so much fun with this sketch, and I kept going with my crafting afternoon.  I made another card, and this image is from "Paper Pretties"-Hialeah.
 I added some flowers and colored using my copic markers.
 The twist with this one is that I made a card on top of the card, see below picture.
I added a Thanks sentiment and this Bo Bunny Pattern paper.  I know I can't enter the bottom card, but love the sketch, so just had to make another one. Thanks again, and I am entering in the following challenges:

LOL Lots of Love Take 2

Today I am again show casing this wonderful embossing folder from Couture Creations called Confetti, last Monday I showed you one way I used it, and today, another way.  Endless, and wonderful ways.
 Embossing Folder A2 Size - Confetti 723287
Our challenge this month at One Crazy Stamper is Anything Goes with a Splash of Glitter and a ribbon.  I sure wish you could see the glitter, I still can't quite figure out how to take a picture showing the glitter.  But it is there.
I cut the white embossed card stock and along the edge used my wink of stella pen for some glitter also added it to the leaves.  Then I embossed the red with the same folder and add the leaves, sentiment and ribbon/button/twine.  I used some glitter to go over the words in the sentiment also.  I do hope you get time to play our challenge at One Crazy Stamper.  I hope you try using your embossing folders, endless ways.  Thanks again, and for all your crafting supplies pop on over to the One Crazy Stamper store.  Till next time, happy crafting.

Thinking of You

Hello and Happy first day of Summer in Canada...and it is a lovely day.  Sunshine blue sky and the temp isn't so bad either.  A bit windy though, but a nice day.

I was talking to a friend and told her I was making a sort of sympathy/thinking of you card.  Tamie thought I should put it on here for a fun card, enter some challenges too.
I think it turned out pretty nice.  I seen this idea on pinterest where they used the dies and had the pattern paper behind the cutout part.  I like adding flowers and ribbon, but it needed something else, and so I grabbed my white Signo Pen and got dotting around the butterflies.  I hope you enjoy your weekend, and I hope you enjoy your Saturday.  Till next time happy crafting and thanks for stopping!  Cheers!

Supplies: CS-Stampin' Up, Spellbinders, Flowers, Ribbon, Stamp-SU, White embossing powder, Versa Mark Pad, White Signo Pen, Glue Dots, Bo-Bunny Pattern Paper. 
Challenges I am entering: Sister Act Challenge-#62 Anything Goes

Thank You

"Thank You" sometimes is so easy to say and means lots, and we usually say it a few times a day, but this day, I just wanted to share my little card I have made for my Mom...shhhhhh she hasn't seen it yet.  I just wanted to give her a little card to say Thank you, no huge meaning, not a little one either just because.
Today our challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks  #199 Round Card is a hosted by our illustrious Tamie, and she has asked us to make a round card.  I seen this technique on You Tube and thought it would work for a round card also.  I don't have a big circle die so my card is like a note card size.  But if you had a bigger circle it would work also.  My little image I colored is a digi image and for the life of me, can't find out where I got it from.  I think sometimes my Organized self is too organized.  So when I find the name I will be sure to give a huge shout out to them.
I used Spellbinders, and some fun bling, my girl Tamie gave me a while back. Added some height with some 3D foam tape, and a ribbon/bow.  Oh and of course colored it up right with some copic markers.  Again please go on over to 4 Crafty Chicks, play along with the chicks and lets have some fun with this challenge!  Till next time I hope you get your craft groove on.  Cheers!
