Simon Says Let’s Get Sentimental – Card 2

Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday challenge is to create a card that focuses on the sentiment.  So had some time today in my craft room and made several for the challenge.  Here’s my second card and it definitely focuses on the sentiment from Tim Holtz.  Love this sentiment….just need to remember it more often. Hope you’re having a wonderful Mother’s Day yourself or enjoying it with your mom.  Happy crafting.

  • Stamps: Round Repeats (Papertrey); We Don’t Stop (Tim Holtz)

Papertrey Ink’s Blue Sky Challenge

Papertrey Ink’s 8th Anniversary has been going on for the last week and this is the last card I am submitting for it.  This card is for PTI’s Blue Sky Challenge.  The challenge is to create a blue ombre background.  I made an ombre background using tim holtz distress inks and resist cardstock.  I made two cards with 2 different resist patterns.  The first one is for my son’s birthday.  I made one earlier this week but I think this one is more his style.  The second one was another struggle but I hate dumping a card so I finished it.  Hope you are having a great weekend!  Supplies are listed below.

Simon Says Ice Inspiration Challenge Card 4

I made some more cards for the Simon Says Ice Inspiration Challenge.  These two cards use some more of my snowflake punches in addition to the large Martha Stewart punch.  I used some of my smaller snowflakes to give the feeling of falling snowflakes.  Cheers.



Simon Says Ice Inspiration Challenge Card 3

I’m on a roll with making cards for Simon Says Ice Inspiration Challenge.  Snowflake card with stamps – check, snowflake card with dies – check, how about a snowflake card with punches.  I should be barred from buying snowflake stuff but I think it must be an addition.  So it’s about time I used some of those snowflake punches.  Here is one of them using my big snowflake punch. I used the snowflake image to ink the inked inside the card as shown in the 2nd photo.    Cheers!




Simon Says Ice Inspiration Challenge Card 2

I am in the snowflake zone so here is another snowflake card for the Simon Says Ice Inspiration Challenge.  This card is totally different from the last soft pink one.  I decided to focus on my snowflake dies for this one and made it more of a graphic card.  My snowflake panel is a Martha Stewart color swatch from Home Depot.  I love the texture of the color swatches….a fun change from cardstock. Supplies for the card are listed below.  Hope you are having a fabulous day!
