One of a Kind!

Hey there!
Today is the third Monday of the month and that means there is a new challenge up at Cards In Envy! The challenge is to create a card using the colors red and blue, any occasion. White bases do not count as a color :)
I used Echo Park Scoot and came up with this thank you card:

I used the color red and two shades of blue- teal and navy.
I added some stitching and mini Authentique words and alphas.

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy!

High Fives

Happy Sunday!
Hope you are enjoying it! It's a beautiful day here in central Wisconsin- sunny and in the 40's! I had some scrappy time this morning so thought I would play with the February 15th sketch at Stuck?! I combined it with the Scrap Our Stash Tic Tac Toe challenge.  I used Paper House Productions All Star for this fun sports page:

I used a star cut file from the Silhouette store, cut it on white cardstock and backed it with patterned paper. I added some hand stitching using black embroidery floss and then painted the inside with grey watercolor and the outside using orange watercolor. Then I added some black spatters: 

I added some enamel triangles and dots and a football sticker with foam behind it to add some dimension:

For my title, I used Paper House, Making Memories, October Afternoon and Fancy Pants alphas:

Here is the sketch and tic tac toe board:

I used a tag, enamel shapes/dots and a mixed alpha title.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

A Winter Card

Hello and happy Friday!
I am here today to show you my take on the card challenge over at ScraPerfect this month. The challenge was to use embossing and to stamp an image:

I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch and ran it over my cardstock that I was going to stamp my image on, which in this case was the snowflake and embossed cardstock. This makes for a clean, crisp look.

Next I added the Best Glue Ever to my stamp and spread it around using my finger. Next, I stamped on white cardstock. Finally I added glitter. I forgot to take pics of these 2 steps. 

Next, I used the Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap to add glue to the edge of the embossing on the card:

Then I sprinkled it with glitter:

I tapped the excess of and this is what it looks like:

Here's a close up of the snowflake and the glittered edge:

Lastly, I cleaned my stamp with the Best Cleaner Ever and then rinsed it off with warm water.

Hope you will join in on the challenge this month. I had a blast playing along!

The Nest

Hope you are having a great week so far!
It's my day to post over on the Creative Embellishments Blog today and I wanted to share my layout here as well.
I used JilliBean Soup along with some fun chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments.

As soon as I saw this chipboard nest, eggs and birds, I thought of these photos I had taken a few years back and thought they would be perfect to use with them!
I heat embossed the nest with brown embossing powder. The eggs I painted with acrylic paints.

I also used brown embossing powder and heat embossed these Chipboard alphas. I added some stickers and some stitching.

I used acrylic paints and Gelatos to color the bird. I added a bunch of fussy cut doilies and black mist spatters.

Here are the products I used:

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy my friends!

Guy Valentine

Lastly, I added some twine.

These photos were taken on our California trip in 2010:

I fussy cut the "Roam Free" from the new acetate sheet:

I added some Puffy Stickers:

My second project was a 12x12 layout:

I also fussy cut the large cacti and the small one is another Puffy Sticker. I added a bit of striped patterned paper for a pop of color:

This cowboy hat was perfect for this fun page:

For my final project, I altered an old box:

Another CHA Layout

Hey there!
Today I am sharing another layout I had in the Paper House Productions  booth at CHA. I used the One Big Happy Family for this layout:

I used a scrap piece of paper and cut it in the shape of a heart. I cut strips of patterned papers from the collection and used scissors to cut the strips. Then I stitched them in place and cut them to the shape of the heart:

I added some papers and cards behind my photo:

I added some of the fun cardstock stickers and tangled thread:

I also added a piece of acetate:

I will be sharing the another collection I worked with tomorrow, so stop back!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
