OCC Dry Emboss challenge

We have family from the states coming to visit us in Germany tomorrow and I've got a whole list of challenges that I sooo want to finish before they arrive because I know the entire 3 weeks they are here I will probably not stamp very much at all. But I have a TON of cleaning and washing bed sheets, etc to do before tomorrow morning that I probably even will not get to the challenges I have on a list. I love reading the OCC blog and thought this was a challenge I could handle. The challenge is to use dry embossing somewhere on your card. I went over to Taylored Expressions blog to pick a sketch challenge because I love her sketches. Not to mention I have this new Hero Arts Cupcakes stamp set that had not been broken in yet. So I knew this was the chance to break it in. I think it came out pretty cute. I ran the striped squares through my cuttlebug using the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. I used some of the pink twill ribbon and the absolutely adorable Taylor Tots from Taylored Expressions.

supplies: Chocolate Chip, Gable Green, Regal Rose, & Whisper WHite cardstock, Hero Arts Cupcakes stamp set, Nestabilities, designer paper from Hobby Lobby, taylor tots

Happy Anniversary June & Anthony

My friend June and her husband are celebrating their 8th anniversary today so I had to make them a quick card. Of course I had to use my new Anniversary Birds set by Verve Visual because it's new to me and I just got it last week! So it worked perfect! I really like this set.

card supplies: Basic Black & Whisper White cardstock, Black & White Eyelet paper, Cuttlebug, Noir Black Palette inkpad, ticket punch, black brads

Lizzie Anne Birthday Sketch Challenge

I'm a day late posting my card I made for the birthday bash going on over at Lizzie Anne designs. I chose to use sketch #3. Sorry for the poor picture quality I think something is up with my camera. I used the single stamp Hey Cupcake. It's my first cupcake image and I use it a lot!

Girly Friendship

It's Mojo Monday time! I love Julee's sketches at Poetic Artistry. This is for Mojo Monday #44 check it out here. I wanted something very girly so I picked out my Doodlebug Black & White eyelet paper first and went from there. I knew it was going to be mainly black and white but I needed a pop of color so I chose Regal Rose. It's a color I keep reaching for lately. I also used the Regal Rose marker to put some color in her cheeks. I paper pieced her dress from the same black and white paper. You can totally tell I'm no professional at coloring. But hey practice makes perfect right? I hope you enjoy the card! Thanks for stopping by.
