A Love Pillow

Today I'm joining in with the Card Concept Challenge - they have the perfect image for Valentine inspiration!
I'd say my card design is Clean Layered.
I was inspired by the red love pillow, the stripes in the tan pillow and texture  in the sofa.
I used a red rubber stamp (unknown) for the LOVE, embossing it in white on a red panel.  I added a white die cut heart to the center of the O (in my bits bin left over from a die cut).
I die cut a square out of Soft Stone striped paper and layered it over the red panel with lots of foam dots.  
I embossed a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock with a chevron embossing folder, die cut it with a Wonky Rectangle Nestability (sort of like the pillow shape,  and texture on the sofa), trimmed the outside edges  to fit over my card and layered it on with more foam dots.
This could be a Valentine or an Anniversary card depending on what I stamp inside!

Mid Month Reminder! January CAS Stencil Card Challenge - Sponging.

I'm here posting my mid-month reminder of the January CAS Stencil Challenge!  You still have time to link up your card!   This month the challenge is to use sponging with your stencils.
This time I used two stencils meant to be layered over each other, Layered Dahlia A and Layered Dahlia B from Altenew.
I took a few photos as I was creating my card so you could see how the layering was created.  First, I laid the A stencil over a 6x6 panel of white cardstock and sponged over the stencil with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink.
Here's how it looked when I removed the stencil.
Then I placed Stencil B over the panel lining up the white lines on the image. and sponged over this stencil with Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink.
And this beautiful dimensional panel was revealed when I lifted off the stencil!
I cut this panel into two smaller pieces 4 3/4" x 2 3/4" each and I created two CAS cards from them.
The sentiment is from Penned Elegance and I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. They are layered over the image with foam dots.

So if you haven't already joined in -  please do now!  Show us how you sponge up those stencils!  You'll find technique videos and beautiful samples by the Design Team over at the challenge blog here.  You have until January 24th to link up your CAS Sponged Stencil Cards!

Papertrey Ink Dec Blog Hop

I thought I wouldn't have time to join in for the Dec PTI Blog hop -  but suddenly had time this afternoon to create a card!    

 Here is our inspiration for this month's hop.
I'm already starting my New Year's Crafting Resolution -  to use what I have already purchased but not used yet!   
I was inspired by the colors and the heart shape.  I pulled out the Mix and Mat Hearts die (which I haven't used yet) and cut it out of Vintage Cream Linen.  Then I cut the Scallop Stackers Large Die (which I have used) out of Green Parakeet.
I layered the heart die over the scallop die with foam dots.  I sponged Pale Peony and Hibiscus Burst inks over some of the hearts that cut out of the die and adhered them inside the cut out hearts so they are recessed.   I die cut and stamped the sentiment from Penned Elegance II  and layered it over the heart panel with foam dots.

We have until 11:30 pm ET to link up your card.  You'll find all the inspired entries here!

A Twofer - Birthday and Anniversary

Today I'm joining in with the fun Twofer March Card Challenge.   We seem to be having a blizzard a week for March here in MA so I'm ready to bring on the blossoms!!
I used a new PTI stamp set on both of my cards today - Corner Adorner February Stamp Set.  Both of the sentiments are from Think Big Favorites #24 stamp set - also from PTI.
I used the coordinating dies for the set on my Birthday card.
 I just stamped the the big blossom and leaves directly onto a colored panel for my anniversary card.

February Twofer Challenge!

So excited to see the Twofer Challenge for February was posted today!
And here are my two cards.
So what did I use that was the same?   The Heart Confetti Collage die from Poppy Stamps and the metallic gold paper.
My first card is a wedding card - I silver embossed the sentiment on the bottom corner (two hearts become one) - it's hard to see it in the photo above with all the shine of the gold paper but you can see it better in the photo below, and I adhered 3 crystal hearts on the card.  The die cut gold panel is layered over a silver panel that shows through the hearts and it's all adhered to a white card base.
Inside my wedding card I stamped:  "May your life together be full of love and your love be full of life" from Technique Junkies.
My second card is an Anniversary card and I used the positive pieces from the die cut used above (the hearts), layering them over the heart DP with foam dots.  I stamped the sentiment on a die cut sentiment strip and adhered it next to the hearts.  The DP is layered to a gold panel and it's all adhered to a white card base.
Inside I stamped:  "Happy Anniversary - May you enjoy many more happy years" from Papertrey Ink.
So are you joining in with the Twofer Challenge?   You'll find all the instructions for the challenge here and we have until Feb 24th to link up our cards!

The New Twofer Challenge - Feathers

Today I'm joining in on the fun new challenge on the block or should I say blog?!?!  The ever talented, creative and 'oh so funny' Darnell has started a fun monthly challenge that runs for just two weeks.  It's called Twofer Card Challenge:
You make two cards using the same stamps and/or dies but for two different occasions.  And this month's prompt is feathers.

For my feathers I used arrows (I know they probably don't make the ends of arrows with feathers anymore - but they used to!)  I made an Anniversary Card and a Valentine's Day card - just changing the colors and sentiments.
I die cut the background using Hugs and Kisses Coverplate die from MFT.  I die cut the center panels using Noted: Scalloped A2 die from PTI and I used the Sentiment Strip die from MFT for the sentiments.  The arrow stamp is from Cupids Arrow by PTI (Retired).
The Valentine
My card base and panel are white - the background is red as well as the sentiment strip and I embossed the arrows using Cranberry Embossing Powder.  I used a clear heart rhinestone.
The Anniversary Card
I used Vintage Cream Linen cardstock for the card base and the sentiment strip.  I used Foiled Gold card for the background and white card for the panel.  I embossed the arrows and sentiment in gold and added a red rhinestone heart

The Twofer - Feathers
So come along and play with the Twofer!
You'll find all the challenge details as well as meet the design team AND be inspired by their feathers Twofer's at the challenge blog here.

Love in the Heart

I have a box of cards I keep in the closet so I always have a card for any occasion - and occasionally I sell them to friends as well.   I needed a few more the the "Wedding" section and so made this card.
I used an older die from MFT - Heart full of Love - that's no longer on their website and a new to me die for the scalloped edge - Notes: Scalloped A2 Vertical die from PTI for the front panel.
It was so easy to put together that I made 4 of them while I had the supplies out on my work table!

I'm linking my card to:

Dare to Get Dirty Post #6

Today I'm sharing the last 10 cards I made for the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges over at Splitcoaststampers.  

Challenge:  No Tools Allowed - Use your fingers
For my background, I rubbed Crackled Texture paste over a white panel, sprinkled it with Distress Glitter and let it dry. Then pressed the panel onto my craft mat where I had spread Distress Oxide inks that were spritzed with water. After drying that with my heat tool, I rubbed Distress Vintage Photo over the top with my finger to accent the crackle. I die cut the Hello 3 times and adhered it over the panel.

Challenge:  Be inspired by two Pinterest Boards (floral or Christmas)
 I antiqued my Vintage Santa by stamping him in Potting Soil ink and then sponging around him with Ranger Distress Tea Dye and Old Paper Inks. I then flicked water from the palm of my hand onto the panel to get waterspots. I added a sticker sentiment and a little holly sprig cut from a larger sticker from K and Co. I used a Copic to give Santa his pink cheeks!
