It's that time of the year, FINALLY!!! Out with the winter and in with Spring!
I was playing around with the March Stamp of the Month, called Choose Happy and a set called Your Own Kind Of Wonderful. When I realized that the colors I used are ones my Granddaughter likes, I decided to make this card for Mya's Birthday. I used the CTMH Floral Embossing Folder for the Pink Background. I cut the corner flourish element from the CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridge Art Philosophy. The two butterflies are from Your Kind of Wonderful and the stamped oval and the sentiments are from the March Stamp of the Month, Choose Happy. The butterfly and the oval were colored with ShinHan Alcohol Markers. The starting inspiration for this card started with a sketch from The Sketch File.

I needed a Birthday in a hurry and the first stamp set I found in my stash was this CTMH Set called Love Ya Silly. Even thought the sentiments are geared towards a valentine, I just used the images and turned it into a cute Birthday card for a little boy's 7th Birthday. The sentiments came from the Perfect Fit Birthday Stamp Set The inspiration for the card started with a sketch from The Sketch Aunts. I just turned it on it's side. I started with the sketch and the Confetti Wishes Paper Pack. I then used inks from the color pallet of the paper which is Pacifica, Pear, Thistle and Canary.
Here's another Valentine I made using the CTMH Hostess Only stamp set called "Sweet as Sugar". I could have used one of the sentiments in the stamp set, but I needed a skinny one to fit the sketch. Unfortunately I didn't finish the card before the challenge ended but that's OK. So the Sentiment and the small background hearts came from the "Forever in my Heart" stamp set. I used the Heartstrings Paper Pack again for this card. Ir's just so addicting. Also used the Teal Shimmer trim and one of the Aqua dots for the handle of the candy Jar. I added MS Glitter Glue to the hearts in the jar and the hearts stamped at the bottom. Challenges for this card: Pile it on - Hearts or Flowers The Craft Place - Love/Valentines My Sheri Crafts - Valentines Just for Girls -
I've had this Spellbinders dies in my case for YEARS, and never used it. When I saw the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, it made me think of this Die. I started with piece of Smokey Plum Cardstock and dry embossed it with the CTMH Quatrefoil Embossing Folder. Then I sponged the flower with Smokey Plum Ink. I dug out some old Belle La Vie papers but the side I was thinking about using was too dark. SO, I flipped it over and WaLa! The perfect look. I then sponged the leaves with Flaxen Ink and Matted the center piece with Flaxen CS also. I then got out my NEW CTMH stamp set called "Happy to be Friends". I stamped the Thinking of You and the mini flowers in smokey Plum and the little greenery behind them in Flaxen. In the centers of all the flowers, I used some MS Glitter Glue, which matched the Flaxen color perfectly.
I'm really behind with my calendar cards. These were suppose to be made before Christmas so I could give them as gifts. But, better late then never. For this I used the CTMH Brushed Paper Pack along with the "Your Own Kind of Wonderful" stamp set. Everything else was done with Dies and Punches. Challenges for this card: Paper Shelter - Punches and Dies Stampotique - Bright Colors Digi Stamps for Joy - Dies or Punched & favorite thing (Easel Cards) and Frilly dies and punches. Creative Colors - Pink, Blue, & White, Flowers and a Sentiment.
My card today is another Valentine or Anniversary card. I just love these colors together. I used Lagoon Cardstock and stamped the background with stamps for the Heartstrings Workshop on the Go with Lagoon ink for a tone on tone look. I then used the Brushstrokes Stamp set for the background of the sentiment. I then stamped "hugs and Kisses" using black Pigment ink and Clear Detail Embossing Powder. Then added some hearts from the WOTG set. I used a small scrap of Heartstrings paper for the banner. I used a strip of Glacier CS and stamped the edges using the WOTG stamps and then added some teal Shimmer trim. I put it all together and added a Hollyhock Bow. The inspiration for this card came from a sketch at Inspired by Stamping.
