TRCC #17: Totally Tiffany


Hi, all! Happy APRIL! Can you believe it's April already??? We decided to use a spring color for our inspiration this month at The Rainbow Card Challenge, and I hope you love it! This month's challenge is called Totally Tiffany! Take a peek at our fun inspiration for this month...


SO much inspiration there, don't you agree? I LOVE it! I was very inspired by the birds and flowers in the challenge photo, along with the beautiful turquoisy (it's a word now) blue. Here's what I came up with...


I created this card at a dear friend's house a few months ago. Everything I used was hers (THANK  YOU, LeAnn!), except the Darice embossing folder. The stamp set is from Stampin' Up! and everything else I used, including the colored pencils, are from Fun Stampers Journey. The Color Burst colored pencils are AMAZING!!! I love the way I was able to shade different blues to create these darling birds!


I totally love how this card turned out! I got to use new-to-me items and spend time with a friend while making it, so it is definitely a memory more than just a card! What do you think? I would love to hear your opinion about it in the comments below!


If you're looking for even more inspiration, you should take a peek at what the other amazingly talented gals on the design team have created, too!


Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends! I hope you come and join our challenge--I always love to see what you create! Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends!

Christmas 24: Sketch

Hello, friends! I am SO excited to be sharing another card created for  Christmas 24! If you follow along, you will have 24 cards made before the Christmas holiday each year! Challenges are biweekly on the 1st and 15th of the month, and this time's challenge is a SKETCH. 



Take a peek at my creation...




I used a cute image from Great Impressions (no longer in business) and colored it in with glittery gel pens from Sakura. I punched it and layered it onto a green scallop punched cardstock piece, then added black liquid pearls. The sentiment was pieces together with a V E R Y old stamp set from my stash. Ink and cardstock are from The Stamps of Life, the patterned paper is from Michaels, and punches are from Stampin' Up! (circles )and EK Success (border).





I adore how these two papers work together, and they really help the other colors POP! SO fun! What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Christmas 24: Christmas Trees


Hello, friends! I am SO excited to be sharing another card created for the *NEWEST* holiday card challenge, Christmas 24! If you follow along, you will have 24 cards made before the Christmas holiday each year! Challenges are biweekly on the 1st and 15th of the month, and this time's challenge is CHRISTMAS TREES. Make sure your card has at least one on it!  Take a peek at my creation...



I layered about 10 punched trees on top of each other, then added a star and washi tape (cut in half, lengthwise) from Fun Stampers Journey to create my Christmas tree. All papers and embellishments are from Fun Stampers Journey, but the punch is from Stampin' Up!. Thank you, LeAnn, for letting me raid your stash! It was such a fun day! :)


I adore how these two papers work together, and they just happen to be one sheet of double sided patterned paper!!! SO perfect! What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Sending Sunshine Blog Hop


Hello, friends! Today I am participating in a blog hop honoring Jeanie Ellis. Jeanie has been going through a rough patch in life, so some of her blogging and crafting friends have come together to send her well-wishes! Our theme is "Sending Sunshine", so I went with a sunflower card. Take a peek...


I used some beautiful products sent to me from Inlovearts for this card, specifically the Mesh Weaving Circles dies and Oil Painting Style Sunflower stamps. The cardstock, inks, bling, and ribbon are all from The Stamps of Life.


If you would like to know how to create a woven ribbon border like I have created here, please head over to my YouTube channel and watch THIS VIDEO!


I really love this card, and I very much hope that it brought joy to Jeanie's day. Jeanie, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that you will feel peace during this difficult time, and know that I am here for you, as are the rest of us participating today!

Here is the full hop list:

TRCC #16: Especially Emerald


Hi, all! Happy March! I am very much looking forward to SPRING! How about you??? We decided to use a spring color for our inspiration thi month at The Rainbow Card Challenge. This month's challenge is called Especially Emerald! I went for all shades of green with friendship being my theme. Take a peek at our fun inspiration for this month...


SO much inspiration there, don't you agree? I LOVE it! I was very inspired by the striped tights in the challenge photo. Here's what I came up with...


I used patterned paper and cardstock from The Stamps of Life, washi from Doodlebug Design and my stash, a die cut from Simon Says Stamp, and a smattering of sequins from a garage sale of yesteryear. I love the way these patterns work together!


I totally love how this card turned out! I got to use my washi tape stash and other items that needed to be used. Yep, I buy things and sometimes take forever to use them! Anyone else?! What do you think? I would love to hear your opinion about it in the comments below!


If you're looking for even more inspiration, you should take a peek at what the other amazingly talented gals on the design team have created, too!

Christmas 24: Red, Green, & Gold


Hello, friends! I am SO excited to be sharing another card created for the *NEWEST* holiday card challenge, Christmas 24! If you follow along, you will have 24 cards made before the Christmas holiday each year! Challenges are biweekly on the 1st and 15th of the month, and this time's challenge is a COLOR CHALLENGE: Red, Green & Gold.  



Take a peek at my creation...



I used some fun dies from Spellbinders on this creation. I layered them on top of each other, then added a gem from Fun Stampers Journey. All paper, ink, and embellishments are from Fun Stampers Journey, but the sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up!. Thank you, LeAnn, for letting me raid your stash! It was such a fun day! :)



I love the way I was able to use the striped pattern in a way that is different. Isn't it cool how it creates square or chevron shapes? I love the non-traditional feel of this card, in general! What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
