This week we were to use the colors: Blue, Yellow, Pink, and Green for the Embellish Magazine's challenge. When I read that those were the colors I right ways thought of flowers...so out came my Asian Artistry set from Stampin Up....I used markers to color the stamp and then sponged in my sunshine.....the butterflies were embossed using my embosslites die from Stampin Up....and the background of my card is embossed as well....these pre-embossed cards from Michaels have become some of my favorite cards...then add so much to your card and are a time saver....to finish off my card I added a trio of matching pink brads. Come on over to the Embellishments Magazine site and play along. They are offering some great prizes and the challenge will get your creative juices flowing!!
challenge. I usually go for the round card....I just
love them....but today I am making a gift for my Mother in Law.....a set of square cards for her....so I decided to play along with the square sketch. I used one of my pre-embossed cards from Michaels and went from there. Let me know what you think!
This is my double layout for the last Let's Scrap challenge. I used stars instead of circles and went with a very patriotic theme because of where we were. Thanks for stopping by and having a look......want some great inspiration?? Check out Let's Scrap and try of one of their sketches.

Chip pearls/Twill tape and linen thread/mini tag punch and some sponging around the edges!!

Today I made this cute little Party Favor Thank You baggie out of an envelope. I created a front and a back for the baggie using my Top Note die from Stampin Up. The Kraft background was embossed using a folder from ProvCraft....I think this pattern goes great with these little robots from Stampin Up. I stamped my little guy in Basic Black and added a touch of Real Red to give him some color. I then used my sponge in both black and red ink. This baggie was created for the Embellish Magazine Color Challenge.....use black, red, kraft, and white.

I love both of these challenges and always look forward to the inspiration that I get from them. I am trying to use up DP from my scraps folder....with a new catalog come and the changing of the colors....it is time for some house cleaning!! I am not sure which packs these two DPs are from but I do know that they are from Stampin Up. My sentiment stamp is from Verve. The main image panel is embossed with a folder from Cuttlebug. I used Pretty in Pink brads from Stampin Up and the ribbon was given to me by a friend....she know about my card making addiction so when she is given something with a pretty ribbon on it she saves it for me and says..."I know you can find some way to use this!" So there you have it for today!! I hope you have a blessed day!
Today's card was made for the Color Throwdown Challenge....I stamped my flowers 3 times and cute out the petals so that the flower could have some dimension.....my leaves were outlined with Garden Green marker and then blended with a aqua painter....my background was created with Garden Green cardstock (embossed) and Soft Suede dp.....my sentiement is framed with some Hodge Podge Hardware....Thanks for looking!!
Here is my card for today's Ways to Use it challenge over at SCS and the sketch challenge for Our Creative Corner. The Ways to Us it challenge asked for "Sweet Child" images. I didn't think I was going to be able to play along because of all my stamps.....I lack kid stamps!! Then I remembered this set that I had tucked away....Crayon Kids a retired set from Stampin Up. Think it qualifies!! I paper pieced the dressed and added some brads for the buttons. I think it turned out pretty cute!! I used dp that was in my scrap pile so I am not sure the name but it is from Stampin Up! I finished the card off with some ribbon and a corduroy brad. Have a happy Easter weekend!!
