A new Freshly Made Challenge

Okay, this card might look hard, but this one actually has a short supply list and is really not that difficult:)

This card is for the Freshly Made Sketches #19 Challenge. I bought this fabulous die from Memory Box, it makes the most beautiful hearts! A big impact for not so much work;) I think I will make another one like this, only different. lol

The die is from Memory Box, but all the other supplies are Stampin’ Up!. Here is my supply list.

Friday Mashup challenge #42

Hello all:)  It has been cold and cloudy all day:(  A great day to stay inside and make cards!

I’m really enjoying the card challenges I have been finding.  I hope you are enjoying viewing my cards.  Today’s card is for the Mashup Challenge.  Not only did I do the color portion, I also did the paper piercing.  The paper pricking pattern came from Fred She Said. You can size it to fit the Top Note die from Stampin’ Up!.  For the flower, I used a combination of Fred She Said flowers and the center is a Boho Blossom from Stampin’ Up!.

Here it is, I hope you like it:)

Hmmm, looks pretty simple, but the product list it long.

Freshly Made Sketches #18

I’ve found another Challenge to play along with:)  I LOVE looking at what other people make!  Joining these Challenges, not only do I get to show what I’ve  made, I get to see what others have done with the same sketch or colors.  What fun! 🙂

Here is what I have made today, I hope you like it:) Be sure to pop over to Freshly Made Sketches to see all the lovely cards! 🙂

The background paper is Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy.  The snowflake paper was bought some time ago at Hobby Lobby. The deer are made with a die from Memory Box, isn’t it great! I made the snowflake with White Glimmer Paper from Stampin’ Up! I punched it out with a Martha Stewart punch.

It’s probably the shortest list of supplies of any card I’ve made lately. lol

Thanks for coming by:)

Merry Monday Challenge #3

I’ve entered a challenge over at “always playing with paper”.  I’m using one of my images bought at “Fred She Said”.  I love this image because it reminds me of my brother.  Well, my brother is actually over thirty now, but this is how I remember him when he was young:)

You can click on the Fred She Said blinkie on the right side, it should take you to the Fred She Said website.  It worked for me;)  Let me know if you have any problems.  Don’t forget to check out “always playing with paper” blog.

Real Red paper, and dazzling Details- Stampin’ Up!
