ATSM Challenge

Time for Addicted To Stamps and More Challenge:

For my card I started out with the Floral Lattice Plate die. I sponged some ink on it, starting very softly at the top and darker at the bottom. I used the Memory Box Side Butterfly Circle set for the rest of the card.
The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday called Faith Opens the Door. I just love this set as it has so many wonderful sentiments. I did also add one pearl to the butterfly....done!


I hope you will join us!

Dies R Us March Challenge

Hi everyone! The Dies R Us Challenge is anything goes with dies from the store.

I had some leftover cut outs from Christmas cards so I used them to make a "wintery" card. 

I took a piece of black and white checked paper for my background. Then I cut out a grey rectangle from Tutti Designs, heat embossed the white sentiment and added the Tutti Pine Forest. The forest has some white speckles I added with a tooth brush and some white ink. The lil snowflakes are just from the cut outs that drop off when you cut out the trees!

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Have a great day!

The Paper Players Sketch Challenge

LOL! I'm back at it with more gnomes!

Here's another one for this weeks Paper Players sketch challenge from Ann:

I used the same gnome from Simon Says, turning it into a St. Patrick's Day card. I also added some shamrocks from Frantic Stamper. The stitched rectangles are from Frantic Stamper,too.

My daughter was born on St. Patty's day, but we are not Irish at all. We certainly celebrate it though... like many others. In fact, when I worked at school I often turned the milk green for milk break in Kindergarten. We used syringes with green die into the individual milk cartons. So fun to see the kids faces when they opened it up and it had "magically" turned green!
