St. Patty's Day fun cards

I bought these cute shamrocks at convention a few weeks ago with the idea of making this shaker card for my Granddaughter.

The Sprinkled and the jar dies are both from Paper Trey Ink.  I put the jar on an Action Wobble for movement.  I was pleased with the way it turned out and hope my Granddaughter will enjoy it.

I was at my Thursday stamping group making some cards with the Sheltering Tree from Stampin' Up.  I had added some sequins to the trees and one of the ladies said you should make one and put the shamrocks on it.  So I did.

It just had to have a pot of gold under it so I added that and a bright sun.

Thanks for coming by.

Paper Pal Arts 291

PPA 291

Color challenge using Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush & Pool Party

My entry

I apologize for the picture quality.  I have to do something better! 

I started by stamping the flower and leaves from #1 of the Remarkable You stamp set from Stampin' Up with black Memento Ink.  Then I colored the flower with my Watermelon Wonder marker and the leaves with the cucumber crush marker.  I then "fussy" cut them. 
I stamped the ribbon in Pool Party onto White Shimmer paper from PaperTrey Ink with a stamp from a set called Ribbon and Bows also from PaperTrey Ink.
I stamped the "Thinking of You" in the black Memento ink and the stamp is from a set called Friendly Phrases by Stampendous.
Then I layered it over Stampin' Up DSP Birthday Bouquet and a base of Pool Party paper.
I wish I could have gotten a better picture because I was really happy with the way this card turned out.

Here is the link to the challenge if you want to play along.

Thanks for coming by and checking out my blog.

Happy Day

This card was made for this challenge.


The flower is from Flower Patch stamp set cut with the Flower Fair Framelits dies.  The sentiment is from Perfect Pairings which is a Sale-A-Bration set.

Obviously I haven't used my blog in a long time but I have still been making cards.   I am going to start trying to post a few cards again.

This is the card I made for my newest Grandson.  It was made for his cowboy themed shower in November.  He was due in January but came early in December.

I made this with my Cricut Explore machine.

This is a 5 X 7 card that I based on the sketch challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. 
This dragonfly is from the Art Philosophy Cartridge from page 24 under the Decorative Layer feature at 2.5 inches.  Then I cut the Dragonfly cut at 1.75 inches in a thick clear sheet.  I put some Zig 2 Way glue around the wing edges and sprinkled them with some Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds.
I cut the patterned paper for the two squares at 2.50 inches square and the solid bases at 2.75 inches.
I felt that there was too much space so I cut another solid square at 2 inches square and cut it in half and layered it on the patterned squares.  I added my gems to finish.   

I am also entering this card at Fantabulous Cricut for their Challenge Me Monday which this week is to use a bug on your project.

Bird on a Branch

For this 5 X 7 card, I used my Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridge.  I cut the bird and branch out in layers, but ended up only using the complete base cut.  I used some Diamond Stickles around the flowers added some pearls for the centers.  I added a pearl for the bird's eye also.  I tried to do some outlining with my white gel pen, but it would not work well on the printed image. 
The lattice border is a Martha Stewart punch.  The awning is from Lori's Garden also and is a scrap from an earlier project.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:

Bitten By the Bug2 -  Garden
