I was excited to see the beautiful photo for PTI’s April Blog Hop!

Ohhhhhh…….so lovely!

The layout for my card was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch #120.

I used PTI’s Brushed Blooms, Polka Dots Basics II and Background Basics: Super Stripes Stamp Set to make the blue stripes.

Here, I have another card inspired by this week’s fun Fusion Challenge: Heartful. This card was also designed with ATCAS’s Challenge: “Hugs & Kisses” in mind.

I really love the blue and white color combination on this card.

I used a heart and some blue from Fusion’s inspiration picture and a little of the sketch in my design. Time Out’s challenge #23 is Valentine’s Day with the Optional Twist of Hearts, so I’ll be playing this one over at Time Out.

The embossing and the heart also remind me of Muse’s Julie B’s cute Valentine’s card, so I’m linking up over there too.

I am also going to play this over at Less is More’s “Little Ones” Challenge. I like the little details provided by the two embossing folders that I used for this card. Also, X’s & O’s are little things with big meanings. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Here’s a card that I designed with ATCAS’s Challenge #56 Hugs & Kisses in mind.

Not very traditional Valentine’s Day colors, but I love blue and white together!

I like this stamp from Stampin’ Up’s Days of Gratitude stamp set and the Hero Arts blue ink always makes me happy. I think this card work’s nicely with this week’s Fusion , Time Out and Addicted to Stamps and More Challenges so I’ll play it over at those too. 🙂

P.S. This challenge got me into a creative niche and before I knew it I had made 6 cards for it! Since I can enter only 2 at ATCAS’s challenge I’ll share the photos here. 🙂

Celebrate the everyday

 Here I have a card inspired by last week’s CAS(E) this Sketch #107.

I love this DSP, Watercolor Wonder, from Stampin’ Up. “Celebrate the everyday”…..makings for a good birthday card, maybe?

I’m going to play this over at CASology’s Week 131: BIRTHDAY challenge.

I seem to be developing a trend of missing CTS’s deadline. 😦

I’m also playing this over at SSS’s Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes. I’ve got quite a few more cards to post, so I’ll be off now.

Thanks for stopping by!

15?

I’m going to play this over at CASology’s Week 131: BIRTHDAY challenge.

IMG_9373edited

I made a stencil with some punches, did some masking, stamped with PTI’s Polka Dots Basics and Background Basics Super Stripes.

Then I applied some Glossy Accents and some glitter.

Then, I drew in the two wicks.

I made this card for my mother to give to my niece, but my kids inform me that my niece is 14! Oh, well. It was a fun CAS card to make and I wanted to make more. Now I have a good reason. 🙂

I’m also playing this over at SSS’s Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

and Seize the Birthday’s: Anything Goes.

I’ve got quite a few more cards to post, so I’ll be off now.
