Happy Birthday Flower Card

Today, I wanted to join retro sketches challenge. Here's the sketch I needed to follow! I really liked the layout so I was pretty excited to make this card :)

I just received another Papertrey Ink package in the mail the other day. So I decided to use my new stamp set, Delightful Dahlia Stamp Set. So fun! For the background stamp, I used their Sheet Music Stamp Set. I used Stampin' Up's Calypso Coral's ink and paper. For the green I used Stampin' Up's Lucky Limeade ink and paper as well. For the tulle, I use what I had lying around from Joann's. On the inside, I stamped a simple Happy Birthday. So here it is. I hope you love it as much as I do :)

So I LOVE this card, and I'm entering it into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week. It was an anything goes so I had to use this one! ;)

So I decided to join another challenge this week. This time it's over at The Play Date Cafe
This week's challenge was to use the colors black, white and maroon. I didn't have maroon so I went with plain ole red and here's how it turned out. :) I used Stampin' Up's ornament cutouts and Papertrey Ink's Christmas Signature Sentiments. Everything else was older supplies I had laying around.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Here's another Make it Monday Challenge. The challenge was to use layered vellum. I used Papertrey Ink's Snowflake Medley Die Cut Set. I then took it's coordinating snowflake stamp and stamped it with VersaMark from Stampin' Up. I used some glitter I had lying around to put on top of the clear ink. As I let those dry, I made the base of my card. I used some old Christmas paper I had and placed a piece of vellum over top to soften it up a bit. I placed it all together using some glue. I then stamped a sentiment with Papertrey Ink's Signature Christmas Stamp. I used some of Stampin' Up's ink to stamp the sentiment. Love how it turned out :)

Just a Little Christmas Note

Here's another one I did for the faux pocket challenge. I loved how this one turned out as well. These are the colors found around my home at Christmas. It definitely got me in the Holiday spirit! I used Signature Christmas StampsTwinkle Stamp Set, and just some regular old paper. I also embellished it with some fun ribbon trim I had lying around the house!! I'm so glad I got into card making. I love it!!

Happy Holidays

Here's a card I made! It goes along with Papertrey Ink's Make it Mondays. It was faux pocket week and here's what I came up with. This is my first card and I think it turned out pretty good! :) I used their Snowflake Medley StampSignature Christmas Stamp, and some fun paper of theirs. I love the color scheme! Super fun :)
