Go-to-Gal Designer Challenge #1 (4-28)

Hi all!

Well, today’s post is a little different.

That’s because today I’m joining up with Betsy, Maren, Kim K., Kim H. and Jess for a little Paper Crafts Go-to-Gal challenge.

We all dig Couture Cardstock so we decided to challenge ourselves today to each make something with their cardstock.

Here’s a card I came up with.

It’s a pretty simple card, but it kind of plays on the whole variegated color trend.

This came together really easy because I used Couture Cardstock’s Young Love cardstock collection. It’s filled to the brim with pink cardstocks.

The gems and letters are from my stash.

Go check out the other gals’ blogs to see what they came up.

That’s all for now. I’ll be back tomorrow.

Today’s card (4-27)


Today’s post is short and sweet so let’s get on with it.

Meet today’s card.

Dum. Dum. Dummmmmmm. (<——-Sorry, I had the overwhelming feeling to add that.)

The text and sentiment are stamps. They are from Stampin’ Up. The leafy branch thingy bobber is a stamp from Judikins.

The rest is from my stash.

Be back tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!

Today’s card (4-26)

Hello, hello! 🙂

It feels like a two-fer day.

So meet #1.

This is pretty much an all Stampin’ Up card. The ribbon and words and flowers are from there.

And meet #2.

The colors on this one are a bit non-traditional for a love card, but it was fun to try something other than red and pink.

The words and heart  (times 2) are from Technique Tuesday’s Love, Ali set by Ali Edwards. The papers are from GCD Studios. The gems and string are from my stash.

That is all for now. Be back later.

Thanks for taking a little time out of your day to stop by!

Today’s card (4-22)

Hello, hello!

Meet today’s card.

This one features lots of stamps from Technique Tuesday. I guess I was in a TT stamping mood when I made it. 🙂

The flowers are from Growing Wild, the text background (on the blue) is from Verboose and the circle and family are from Ali Edwards’ Family Circle set.

The flowers are from Zva Creative. The rest is from my stash.

Nothing more to say so I’ll be back tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Today’s card (4-20)

Hello, hello! 🙂

Meet today’s card.

It’s one of those cards that I wanted to do because I just wanted to get messy and play.

I started out with the leaf frame. It’s actually a Technique Tile from Technique Tuesday. They come naked like this.

Then I added a few squirts of these.

I let the inks dry.

It was pretty, but I wanted it to be a little prettier so  I added a fat, super sloppy layer of Glossy Accents from Ranger to the tile.

The end result: What you see here. 🙂

Awww. It’s good to play.

Hard to tell, but I also placed a torn piece of vellum between the white card and the leaf tile.

The words are a stamp from Technique Tuesday’s Simply You set by Ali Edwards. The gems are from Queen & Co.

That is all I have for now. I will be back tomorrow. Thank you for stopping by!
