Just for You

I rarely have time to create cards these days, let alone enough time to actually enter them into challenges, but this time it worked out well.  Ellie took a good nap this weekend and there weren't a thousand things to do around the house.

Below is my card for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #324.  I hope you like it!

Supplies:  MFT Friends Furever, MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edges, MFT Blueprints 29, Clearly Besotted Sweet Little Sentiments.

Pop Up Box Card

I've seen several pop up box cards around the blogs lately and I think they are really fun.  Recently Power Poppy had a tutorial on creating a pop up box card and I decided to give it a chance.  I needed to make a thank you for my mom for all the hard work she put in for my baby shower.  (Which was February 28 - I'm kind of behind.  I made a lot of other thank yous first.)

Supplies used:

Mama Elephant - Picket Fence Die
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Borders Die
Lil Inker Designs - Border Builders Dies
My Favorite Things - Adorable Elephants Stamps & Dies
My Favorite Things - Lucky Prints Paper
Copic Markers

Shimmer Cardstock

Oh, how I love shimmer cardstock!  I wish I could use it on everything.  When I saw the Monday Challenge from Simon Says Stamp I thought it would be perfect.  To make it even more fun, I used my Copics to color a flower from Power Poppy's Azalea stamp set.  I cut out the image with Lil Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles and matted with more shimmer paper!  The sentiment, from Clearly Besotted's Sweet Little Sentiments, was heat embossed in Ranger liquid platinum.

It Moose be Love!

My local scrapbook store was having a consignment sale last week and I got some great Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn stamp sets.  Most had never even been used and were $5!  I was so excited to find Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Arctic.  I love that moose!  So of course I needed to make a card with the moose.  I stamped and reverse stamped the moose and then colored with my Copic markers.  I added a hat to one moose and the sweet little heart.  The sentiment is white heat embossed on a banner from Mama Elephant Basics creative cuts.

Thanks a Bunch

I got the new Miniature Florals stamp from Clearly Besotted recently and I have been just randomly coloring each image with my Copics.  I decided to combine a few to create a card.  I cut them out and attached them each to a cross stitched rectangle from My Favorite Things with foam tape.  I white heat embossed the bow and sentiment.
