Happy Birthday

Hi everybody! I hope you had a fabulous weekend.
My Sunday was super nice, perfect weather and all afternoon at home with some time to play in my craft room.
I made this card using the sketch by Freshly Made Sketches and The Paper Players have a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week, so I used the diagonal Embossing-Bling- Birthday.


I dry embossed the white panel with a Cuttlebug EF, and I embossed the flower by Hero Arts and used Pearlescent EP by Inkadinkado. The sentiment is from SSS July card kit. I have several birthdays this month, so I'll be back soon with more birthday cards.
I'm also entering this in this week's Simon Says Stamps challenge "Anything goes"
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed week.

Thinking of you.

Hi everybody!
I hope you are having a wonderful week.
I have some time to play early this morning, and I made another card for Maddy.

The tag, felt flowers and sentiment are from Hero Arts. I made the bow with a Lil' Inker Designs die, and the letter stickers are 'Green at heart' by BG. I embossed part of the back ground with Cuttlebug EF.
I hope she likes it. I enjoy making it.
As I used a tag, I'm linking this to A Blog Named Hero and Simon Says Stamps "Anything goes".
Thanks for visiting!

Ombre Thank you.

After almost two years making cards, I now feel comfortable enough to 'experiment'. I've seen lots of cards using the 'ombre' effect, so I decided to try on the sentiment of my card today. I colored this stamp (By SSS  May 2012 card kit) with a marker and I did it 3 times on the first letters,2 times on the second and 1 on the 'k' and 'u', then I embossed it with Inkadinkado Perarlescent  ep, I know I have to keep practicing, but I do like the result.
I used the sketch by CAS(E) this sketch for this week. On the left, I used and embossing folder by Cuttlebug and Anna Griffin called "Poppy"
and to finish it up I added some Cherry blossom stickers by Jolee.

So, another thank you card ready for when I need it. :)
Thanks so much for visiting and happy crafting.


Hi everybody! I pray all of you are having a wonderful week.
Last Sunday between Church and Father's Day celebration (Joe has 2 lovely daughters), I made this card.  It's for the Fusion Challenge # 11.
Here is my take.

I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug EF, then sponged it with Distress Ink 'Salty Ocean' and 'Mowed Lawn' taking those colors and texture from the picture.  Then I stamped the 'Luminous Poppies' by Memory box using red Memento ink and embossed it and the  sentiment with Pearlescent embossing power by 'Inkadinkado'. I love the shimmer it gives. Then I cut it in 4 and mated  on red card stock
This card goes to my fiend Amy, even though we live in the same city she is always so busy and travelling for work all the time we hardly see each other.
Thanks for your visit! Have a blessed rest of the week.

Thank you.

Hello everybody, it seems this week is going too fast, or is it just me? Almost Thursday wow.
I have another card that I made on Sunday. It seems that I never have enough 'Thank you' cards, but then again I love giving them, so no complaints... This time I used the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch., and I went with bright colors .

I love this sketch and I'll be using it again for sure. Card stock, punched flowers and butterfly are by Stampin Up! the border is MS, the leaves is a die by Sizzix.

Thanks for visiting.

Father's Day

Hello everybody! I wish you all a fabulous week.
I played for a while in my craft room yesterday, but as it was raining I couldn't take a pic of my card, so I'm posting it today.  I used this sketch by Freshly Made Sketches and I used the colors by The Paper Players.

 I made this card for our Son In Law, Chad. (I love to put the name of the recipient in my cards, what about you?).
The stamp is an oldie by Stampin Up! the cardstock  is by SU! and the dp and banners are by Echo Park . The twine is by SU! and the button is from my stach. I used clear embossing powder over the early espresso ink on the main panel.
Thank you for visiting and have a blessed week.

My card for Maddy

Hi Everybody! I hope you are having a great weekend.
I worked this w-e, and I was just catching up with my e-mail when I saw this post at Simon Says Stamps blog.  They have posted a request to send cards to Maddy about two weeks ago, so on Wed last week I sent one to her and I was planning on sending one to her family too, I never thought of posting the card until now, so here it is.

The stamps are from CAS-ual Fridays and the inks are Distress Inks, by Ranger.
I'm sending this to Simon Says Stamps Challenge Blog too, this week is "Anything goes".
Thanks for your visit.
