Poppy Sketch #17

Back today with another card for Poppy Sketch Challenge #17.
This challenge is sponsored by Starving Artists Stamps.
I am using an adorable alien stamp called Final Frontier

I stamped the alien in Navy ink and paired it with a sentiment by Lawn Fawn.
The shimmering silver background paper is by Cut Cardstock.
The glittery star and raspberry papers are by DCWV.
I embossed the stars in white to create a background.
The circles were made with Lawn Fawn dies.  


Thanks for stopping by.
I can't wait to see what you create using this great sketch and color challenge.

Poppy Sketch #16: Gift Card Holder

Back today with another card for the Poppy Sketch Challenge Blog.
We are using Cut Cardstock for our cards.

Here's my interpretation. 
The base is Cut Cardstock. It has a bit of shimmer to it and it is VERY sturdy.
The patterned papers, die and stamps are all by Lawn Fawn.
I made a gift card holder by layering the LF "Stitched Journaling" die.
Stamps: Lawn Fawn "Birthday Tags" and "Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum"
Die cut: Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Journaling" die
Patterned Papers: Lawn Fawn's "Dewey Decimal"
Cardstock: Cut Cardstock
Punch: Fiskars
Can't wait to see what you make,

Sympathy Card

Sharing a card I gave to a friend going through a difficult time. 
The bunny's sweet face was sure to cheer anyone up.

I colored Rosie with Copics.
The twine is from The Twinery.
That raised panel is by Nestablilites.
The background stamp is "friendship definition" by HA.

 I am entering this into the Purple Onion Stacey Yacula card challenge.
Thanks for looking!

You are a Blessing

Sharing a card I made with a fall theme.
I was inspired by a sketch challenge at A Cherry on Top.

Here's the awesome sketch:

I used Lawn Fawn's "Harvest Season" and Stitched Journaling die.
The background is Punchinella by Neat and Tangled.
I colored the cornucopia with Copics and swiped a bit of Wink of Stella over the pumpkin.
The sentiment from the set is embossed with Ranger Platinum.  

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge.
I like to shop a couple different places!
Thanks for looking,

Baby Cards featuring Lawn Fawn

Sharing a card I designed to greet new babies.
Both cards feature Lawn Fawn's "Bon Voyage" set. 
The boy version also used "Harold's ABCs". 
The planes were colored with Copics.

The girl version features pink patterned paper by Echo Park and a sentiment by Verve.

I am posting to share these for the Lawnscaping FB DT call.
I think I have 23 Lawn Fawn sets and more on the wishlist.
ALWAYS more on the list...
Thanks for stopping by to look at my projects.
Have a great week!

Poppy Sketch 15

Back on this Monday morning with another card featuring the sketch from Poppy Sketches.
We are featuring wood veneer from Gina K designs.
I am also featuring a stamp by Gina K called Beyond Baskets

I didn't have any houndstooth patterned paper or stamps,
so I cut the background design on my Silhouette.
I colored the wagon with Copics.
I punched flowers out of the foil and glitter paper (both by DCWV).
I covered the wood veneer with Stampendous glitter.
To set the glitter, I sprayed it with a bit of HAIRSPRAY (whaaaaat?)
Please tell me how you would have done it. I didn't want to use gloss on top...

Here's a close-up:

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you play along with this week's Poppy Sketch Challenge!

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Glad to be joining the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!
As an avid coffee drinker (hot or cold) I was excited to play along!
Grab a cup of java, join the fun, link up and be eligible for some great prizes!

 Made two coffee themed cards.
Both feature "Be a Barista" stamp set by Reverse Confetti.
I added Glossy Accents to the liquid on both.

On this one, I used the plain liquid stamp (top left on stamp set)
at the bottom of the cup for a shadow.  I masked the cup. 
Those are my homemade enamel dots made from melted perle beads.

Thanks for hopping along. 
Have a great day continuing your journey through the awesome cards.
