TRCC: Challenge #3: One Week Reminder!

Hi, friends! Just poppin' by to say THANK YOU for everyone who has joined in this month at The Rainbow Card Challenge and letting everyone know you have one week left to enter your creations! To show my appreciation, I've created a digital card to share with you! Take a peek...

The focal panel of this card was pretty easy-peasy to make! I used Adobe Photoshop to get the variety of elements the correct colors and in the proper places, but you could probably make something very similar in a word processing program! If you like this card panel, I'm sharing it for FREE! Just left click, then right click, and save for your PERSONAL USE!


I'll be sharing a different ombre card from each month this year, so make sure to check back each month to complete your collection! Don't forget to head over to The Rainbow Card Challenge to link up with us, too! Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends!

Hedgehog Wish

Hello again, friends! Thanks for stopping by today! I recently purchased some DARLING digital stamps from Lee Holland's Etsy Shop, and I took some time over this break to do some coloring and card making with them! Take a peek at today's offering...

I have to apologize for the mildly blurry photos. My camera is having issues and is driving me crazy. ;) I colored this darling hedgehog image using colored pencils, then added some Stickles for added texture and shine. The sentiment is by Paper Smooches. I punched it out and layered it with punches from Stampin' Up!, then added some bling!

The card was prepped with some patterned paper from Stampin' Up!, a doily from Doodlebug Designs, ribbon from The Stamps of Life, and a button and twine from my stash. I love the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too! I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you again for stopping by today! I hope you find some time to create and join these fun challenges this weekend! Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, all!

Shamrock Wish

Hi, friends! Thanks for stopping by today! I have been going through my stash and trying to use things that haven't been opened (and I've had them for almost a year--EEK!), and I came up with a fun and festive St. Patrick's Day creation to share with you today! Take a peek...

I used the gingham washi tape set from Doodlebug to create my rainbow. The die cut sentiment is from The Stamps of Life, and the clover elements are from a lot of buttons I bought at a garage sale. I added some green glitter gems from Doodlebug to add more shine and texture.

I really adore the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too! I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Minty Flower

It's spring break, so I am crafting for myself for the first time in quite a while! It has been so much fun getting back into my craft room, and I can't wait to share my creations with you over the next week or so. :) Today's card is a monochromatic mixed media CAS card...whew, that's a mouthful! Take a peek...

I'm currently trying to use my stash, so I stared by stamping my textures on the background using an old Bo Bunny stamp set with a variety of blue inks from Stampin' Up!. The floral images are a Martha Stewart stamp set that I've had for ages. The main flower was stamped three times and heat embossed, then cut and layered with dimensional foam. Some Stickles add more texture and shine to the center. Those glittery leaves were punched using retired Stampin' Up! punches and glitter paper from my scrap drawer. The sentiment was created by me on the computer, then cut out and blinged up with a few rhinestones.

I very much enjoy this card, even though it has a defect. Can you spot it? Do you still love it, regardless? I hope so! I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

TRCC: Challenge #3: Yummy Yellow

Hello, friends, and welcome to March! Is everyone ready for a change in seasons? I can't wait! Thank you so much to everyone who played along last month at The Rainbow Card Challenge, and here is this month's prompt...

Now, we really just want to see creations with an abundance of yellow. You don't have to necessarily go with the "yummy" theme or use the photos as your guide. Mostly monochrome, if you understand my meaning. For all the details about the "rules" (there are very few), you can see the challenge post! This post is about the card I made, so take a peek...

I pulled out a Fiskars stamp set that I bought years ago to create this fresh and fruity card! I added some patterned paper from The Stamps of Life, ribbon from Stampin' Up!, and layered the focal image with various pieces, including a doily from Doodlebug. I LOVE all the fun and sunny yellows with fresh white polka dots!

You KNOW how I love me a good pun! This is why I kept this set--the amazing puns! My hubby said he really liked this card, so I actually used it as his Valentine last month. ;)

I think this card turned out so fresh and funky, and I hope you like it, too! I would LOVE for you to let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Please come and join us this month at The Rainbow Card Challenge! I LOVE seeing what everyone creates! 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!
