We wish you a...

Here is my card for the watercolor challenge over at A2Z Scrapbooking. I was watching a video by Kristie Marcotte and got inspired by a sketch she used. I love her series of making multiple cards using one 6x6 paper pad. If you haven't checked her blog/videos before, I highly recommend them!

Here is a look at the card, head on over to see the details on the blog!

Scary Cat

Today's is my day to post for the Die Cut Diva's. This month we are hoping you are inspired by the mood board we created  for October. Our sponsor is Bugaboo



This is my first card for our challenge, which started with printing 3 of the same image to fit on the front of my card. Once they were printed I used my copics to color the background of the images. I then trimmed the panel rounding two corners and did the same with the pattern paper I matted it on. 


For the background I used some distress inks to color the pattern paper so it matched the cat circles. Once it was colored I adhered it to the card base and then popped the smaller panel on using foam adhesive. My word is left overs from a background die that I used last year, glad I saved them they are coming in handy. ;-) After everything was adhered I added some glow to the cats eyes using Nuvo dots.

A2Z- joyous holiday

It's the first of the month already! I'm popping up with a post for the new challenge over at A2Z scrapbooking. Our theme this month is watercolor. Can't wait for you to share you watercolor creations with us!

a2z scrapbooking watercolor challenge
My card is designed with a watercolor panel I created. I wanted the panel to have a ombre look, it looks like it was dipped in color starting with the lightest pink to the rich purple. 

I then stamped my images and sentiment in black. I added some twine at the top before adhering the panel with pop dots.

DCD- little fox

Today's card is my last card for our masculine challenge over at the Die Cut Diva's. Our wonderful sponsor for September is Dies R Us. 


I couldn't wait to use this cute fox from Waffle Flower, I immediately visioned him playing with the pumpkin on his back. After stamping him I added some shadow with copics before die cutting the image and layering with pattern paper. I popped the die cut frame up with foam tape and added the panel to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Day 1 of Jr. High

I finally got time to sit down and make layout using my kit inspired from this months Counterfeit Kit. This may be the only one I get done... before the challenge ends at least. I also use this sketch for Stuck?! Sketches...


You can see my kit here. The lighting wasn't great so my paper looks a little pinker than it really is. I didn't want to add to many embellishments on my boys page, maybe I'll get over that and add what ever I want... Until then the embellies are a little light on the page. ;-)


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Birthday Drink


Today I'm sharing a card I made for my Father in Law. I used the Fusion Card Challenge for inspiration, I like the sketch and the colors were looking like the picture until added the pattern paper.  
My image is from a retired set by Avery Elle. I wanted to tie the card to the gift. My FIL likes non alcoholic beer so we got some new ones for him to try. 


I stamped the outline in black and the "beer" in Fossilized Amber distress ink. Then I die cut it with the double stitched rectangles from MFT stamps. I layered my pattern strips and image layer on gray cardstock. I measured the where the layers would be and stamped my sentiment so that it would be in between the layers. Then added all of my layers to my cardbase. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
