I ended up making 4 of these for a private card challenge that I belong to.

I used CUTplorations word dies “happy” and “BIRTHDAY” to die cut the words out of a panel I’d watercolored.

Here’s the card I made with the watercolored panel:

Cups of Shaker Tea

Hi! Today I have a fun card to share with you.

IMG_0818edited

 I had a lot of fun doing this card! The tea cup stamp from Stampin’ Up lends itself to all kinds of creative possibilities!

I’m playing this over at Virginia’s View Challenge #12.

Before this challenge over at Virginia’s View I hadn’t made shaker cards, but now I’ve been bitten by the shaker bug!

I would like to dedicate this post to Papertrey Ink, even though I didn’t use 1 PTI product on this card! You see, I found out today, via an email from Darnell, that I won PTI’s Year of Stamps contest!!!!! What an AMAZING blessing!

Thank you, Darnell for the sweet congratulations! I really appreciate your kindness. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

MIM #200- Rainbow Layered Cover Plate Hearts

Hi! Here’s a card that I made for Make It Monday #200: Layering Cover Plate Die Cuts with Dawn McVey.

IMG_9695edited

I cut out ROYGBIV card stocks with PTI’s Hearts Cover Plate Die. When I watched Dawn’s video on Monday, this idea came to mind instantaneously and then came together very quickly! I’m playing this over at SSS’s Monday Challenge H is for… (Hearts!) Speaking of hearts, you should see the pile of little die cut hearts I have! Thankfully there are always garlands to be made after Betsy’s inspiration last week! 🙂

I was inspired to try some other ideas too. Have you ever noticed how one card can lead to many more?! If you’d like to, you can check out some more of mine, inspired by this challenge, here here and here!

Thanks for stopping by!
