Cupid Kisses!!!



This is my card that I designed for todays Sketch Challenge over at SCS. I love this Sketch!

On my card I stamped this darling little miss cupid :) She is from Valentine Cuties collection from Alota Rubber Stamps. I think she is t0oooo sweeet!!!!! she is colored the same as the one below in my last post. I did use pretty in pink, and a pink gel pen, and I added black polka dots to the bottom part of her dress, her socks I left white and her hair is alittle darker here. This Valentine dp I bought last year I believe, and Its sooo pretty, I love the hearts on this dp. On the white it does have embossed polka dots that are velvet like. Its hard to tell from this photo. Anyways I did enjoy making this card, and want to thank you for stopping by!!

Have a Happy New Year!!!!

Hugs,

Cheryl

Valentine Cuties/ Alota Rubber Stamps


This is my fun funky fold card that I designed for the TLC challenge on SCS. Here is a link to make this fun funky fold.

On my card I used this darling bear from the Valentine Cuties stamp set from Alota Rubber Stamps.



On the bear I watercolored him in choc chip, and used real red and pretty in pink on the roses, and real red on the heart. The sentiment is also included in this Valentine Cuties Stamp Set, and so is the heart!! The design paper is from Anna Griffin.


This is the inside of the funky fold! I just added the frames and stamped a heart, I left it open to have whatever stamped inside. There is an inside of the card as well, you just open it just like a card. and then there is this funky fold on the top of the card :) Hope that makes sense..lol its still early here, and Im try'n to wake up still :)



This is another stamp from the Valentine Cuties Set. She is soooo soooo cute, I love working with these stamps, Ive been having a ton of fun!!! Thank you Helene!!!!!

On this card I did use some shimmer paper, I ran it through the cuddlebug with the swiss dots folder. I also used a border punch for the black panel across the card. I then added su dp. I love these spellbinder frames that hubby bought me :) Thank you hunny!!!! I wasnt going to add ribbon to this one since I didnt leave enough room. But I had to add some, so I added a little ribbon treatment to the top with a heart button. I did stamp the sentiment "To My Sweet Friend" on a little frame that is layered just like this darling cupid is.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day, and thank you for stopping by!!!

Hugs,
Cheryl

aren't you sweet!!


Here is another card I designed with the same darling flower stamp set from Queen Kat Design. This set is due for release on Jan 1st, and is toooo sweeet!!! I did use the aren't you sweet sentiment on the outside of this one so everyone could see. This set does include 2 sentiments, and the flower stamp. Also right now the Queen Kat store is having a huge sale, you will have to go and check it out!! Have fun tooo!
On this card I did stamp the flowers in craft black ink and used clear embossing powder, and then heated. I used real red su marker to make polka dots in a few of the flowers. And pretty in pink in the others. I also used certainly celery to go over allt he steams, and leaves. I used my large marvey punch to punch out the flowers, and then just mounted that on black and cut it out. The dp is double sided, and sooo sweet! I then just stamped the sentiment on the bottom, and added my ribbon treatment to the top, with a white heart shaped button!
Thank you for looking, and hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Cheryl

Just Whalin' Around/Negative effect inked+embossed

Win this card!!! All you need to do is make a card using this Technique that Ive posted below, and post a comment here on my blog, and one Comment on Queen Kat Designs blog.

Also leave a link to your card, on either blog. I will then enter all names that have posted and played along into a drawing. You have until tuesday evening to post your card. Thanks for playing!!


Hi everyone, today I decided to show you this technique. Its Negative effect inked+embossed. I tried to keep my card as simple as possible to show you what the background looks like with this technique. What you will want to do is get a cuddlebug folder, and take your ink pad and rub it across either the bottom or top part of your folder. In this case I did the bottom part. Then lay your paper to be embossed and run it through your machine, just like normal.

On this card I did add corner pieces that i cut after i used the corner punch on them. This darling Whale is from Queen Kat Designs, and I stamped her on su dp. She is stamped 2 times, once on the white and then on the pink dp. I also used dazzling diamonds on her waterspout.LOL Not sure what that is called...LOL anyways


What do you think ????????

New Ian's from Pink Poison Stamps!

These are the new Ian's from Pink Poison stamps. I have 3 of them, and will have the fourth soon. They are sooooo cute!!! This is sheriff Ian, and I did this one for todays challenge on SCS to use something recycled. I used this button charm that was on an old top that doesnt fit me anymore, so I had taken it off about 8 months ago and saved it to reuse.


Next is Space Ian, on him I used some shells that my daughter was going to throw away. They were on a necklace that broke. So I said to her no , I will maybe someday use these on my cards. So that I did :)
Cant wait for my daughter to see this one, since I used her shells, that she was going to throw away :) She is going to love this!!
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!!!

Cheryl

Wishing Tree


This is my card for mondays TLC challenge. We were to take glossy paper, and ink it up, and then spray simple green on it to create our own dp. On mine I used white paper and then inked it up with Baja Breeze. Then I sprayed simple green, and waited about 2 hours for it to dry. I then ran it through the cuddle bug with swiss dots. Love that folder :)Next I used wishing Tree,this stamp is from Pink Poison stamps. I love how this one turned out!! the sky is watercolored with baja breeze, and the grass is old olive. The apples are stamped on riding hood red with craft black ink and heat embossed. I then added dazzling diamonds to all the apples. The braid across the bottom is 3 strands of ribbon 1.5 wide, tide a knot at the top and braided, then tied one at the bottom. I then added 3 big gem butterflies to the side.
Thanks for a fun challenge, and thank you all for looking!!!
