The Paper Players sketch challenge

Hi everyone!

It's Sunday already, and time for the challenge at The Paper Players:

I thought this was a great sketch for a Birthday card. One of my friends has the QuicKutz candle die, and every so often I like to borrow it and cut out a bunch. I used one here, along with the "happy"word die from Stampin Up, Lil inker stitched rectangles, and Lawn Fawns stitched journal dies. I also added a few gems here and there.

Head on over to The Paper Players and join the fun!

Foxy Friends!

Hello Everyone!

I have a few Valentine cards I made for some friends that I didn't get a chance to post, this one is made with paper from Lawn Fawns Let's Polka paper pack. I kept it monochromatic.

I used a few snippets from my scrap box for the fox.

AND I used my Lil inker stitched rectangle and circle dies...which you all know by now, are my favorite dies. I tend to use them every time I make a card! They have a fun, brand new challenge, go check it out!

The stamp set and fox die is from Taylored Expressions.

 I sure had lots of fun this year making my Valentines. Have a great day!

Monday challenges...

Hi everyone!

Today I made a quick card for the challenge over at Merry Monday:

A Santa challenge!

I used the Santa from Stampin Up's Santa's List. I stamped him in cherry cobbler and cut him out with a Lil inker stitched rectangle. I added the words,"Merry Christmas" at the bottom.

Since I used my favorite Lil inker dies, the stitched rectangles, I'm linking this up to their brand new challenge:

Joanne has a clean and simple challenge this week at The Paper Players:

Feathered friends!

What a fun challenge. I decided to make a wedding card, and went white on white.

I used white textured paper, and scored a rectangle shape, then adhered the white MB tree, doves and tiny red hearts. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Many Mini's.
