Birds of a Feather

One last card before my journey to South Dakota. I wanted to make a card for the current sketch from My Favorite Things. I deviated a bit but I think it works. I used papers from various past card kits from Simon Says Stamp and my newest dies from MFT including Homespun Birdhouse. Stamp is also from MFT. A little inking on the edges and some Stickles and it's good to go. Thanks for looking.

Hola Amiga

Tomorrow is my hairdresser's birthday. Since I was seeing Ana today, I wanted to make a special birthday card for her. She has been performing wonders on my hair for at least 35 years and is a sweet gal. I wanted to use my new Avery Elle rubber stamp set called Papel Picado in honor of her heritage. The card may seem a bit disjointed because I started out with a Simon Says Stamp card kit and then veered off in another direction. Nevertheless, she liked the card a lot and I had fun playing with this set. I hope to make more cards and layouts using it so you should see it again. Thanks for looking. Oh, and by the way, I also used this for the August sketch over at Paper Artists Online

May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

Here's a little card I made based upon a sample provided by Jennifer McGuire in her recent Onlinecardclass. I copied hers very closely with the exception of the sentiment. This is a birthday card for my bestie Teresa and we are both fans of The Hunger Games. You know I had to use this sentiment on her card. We are eagerly awaiting release of the Catching Fire movie. The feathers and apertures were cut with dies from My Favorite Things. The stamp set is also from MFT. The feathers were colored with Distress Inks. Sequins and bling from my stash. Thanks for looking.

It's a Good Day

Another card made for a sketch, this one from My Favorite Things. Unfortunately I missed the deadline for posting at MFT but here's the card anyway.

I used cardstock from the Immortal Love stack from DCWV on a Club Scrap card base. Stamp and Double Dot die from My Favorite Things. White Pigment ink pad from Club Scrap. All other edging with Distress Inks. A little bling and it's done. Love the look of these fairly new Chalkboard Greetings stamps from MFT. Thanks for stopping by to look at my stuff.
