A-Ok Anniversary and a Cameo Thank You.

Happy Sunday everyone - just got back from an invigorating walk with Kent - it's a gorgeously sunny day here in MA today - the sky is clear blue without a cloud in sight!  The temp is hovering around 50 degrees though so we still needed a light jacket!   We seem to have spring for a day here and there - then the temps drop again.  But the trees are budding and all the spring bulbs are growing so it's all good!

I have two cards to share today - this first one was made for the One Layer Wednesday Challenge - A-Ok - to use elements on your card that begin with A.   I used the words Amour and Anniversary and I used the color Aqua Blue.  My stamps are all from Waltzingmouse.

When I was creating this design - I stamped it first on a white panel to try it out. I liked it so I made another card with more layers on it using that panel.  Just a slightly different look - framing it in black and then a blue card base.
 
My second card was created for the Little Red Wagon Challenge -  to use a cameo.  I was inspired by a photo I found on Pinterest 
And here is the card I created.  My stamps are all Waltzingmouse.  I embossed the images in black on the die cut egg and layered it over the embossed black panel with foam tape.  I added a clear heart rhinestone to the decorative branch.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

A Glittery Lacey Christmas

Well - it's been a busy week - I'm working on all kinds of projects for the April WMS Sneak Peeks and release that start Monday 4/15 (which is also the tax due deadline here in the US, and the Boston Marathon is run in MA!)  and I've been feeling kinda lousy with a spring cold -

But.......   I just had to get a card done and posted for some of my FAV challenges -  so here it is:

I silver embossed the lacey doily and Noel sentiment on the blue panel - then simply added a clear rhinestone to the center.

And here are the challenges:

The April Waltzingmouse Christmas challenge in the Playroom of the WMS Forum - to use at least one non-holiday stamp on your card.
Little Red Wagon Challenge -  to use lace, real or stamped
CAS-ual Fridays -  all that glitters.

I hope you all have a great weekend -  Spring is finally arriving in New England! 

Please remember to stop by beginning on Monday to see what I have to show you for the WMS April Release.

And on Tuesday I'll also be posting a project using a wonderful new template from Creations by AR!

It's going to be a fun filled week!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Dainty Doilies Large, Compliments of the Season - Two
Paper:  White, Spring Rain - PTI
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories:  silver embossing powder, heat gun, rhinestone - from stash, glue dot.

Die Cut Love

Happy Sunday Stampers!

Today I have a card made for two challenges.  The Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast was a web store called Patina and I was inspired by this Love Pillow.
The Little Red Wagon challenge this week was Be a Negative Nellie - to use the negative part of your die cuts.

Here is my card:
A clean and simple design - I cut the letters using the Block Alphabet dies from Papertrey Ink.  I layered the patterned paper over the card base with foam tape to accent the cut out.  I will probably use this for either a wedding or anniversary card.

On Tuesday April 16th I'll be participating in a Creations by AR DT blog hop highlighting Adela's new April release template -  You're going to love it!!!

Paper: Terrecotta Tile - PTI, DP - Fun and Sunny - Kaiser Kraft
Accessories: Block Alphabet dies - PTI, foam tape
