Upsy Daisy for a Contest

I made this card for the Challenge that Vicki at Stamped Smiles had on her blog for a blog candy contest she was having , using a sketch from the DRS Design blog . Unfortunately I did not win the contest .
I used Stampin Up's Upsy Daisy stamped with their markers and used DD glitter on the flowers , the DP is by DCWV the green is a textured CS , I also used my oval nestabilities on this card , some faux dew drops that came from Michael's and some pretty purple ribbon . I also used a Martha Stewart punch on the side of the DP but you can hardly see it .
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Monday !

ETA: Just posted a new feature over on my side bar , it is called The Candy Dish , it is where you will find links to blog candy on blogs of other papercrafters .

Sparkly Pocket Silhouettes , A New Blog Look and Blog Candy Alert

I am not sure if I am entirely happy with how this card turned out , mostly because I am a bit of a perfectionist and want my cards to look a good as some of the top stampers cards do , I keep thinking it looks as if something is missing , oh well . I guess I will improve more with time . This card uses Pocket Silhouettes from SU! , DSP is also from SU! . Other Items used are : 2 different Martha Stewart border punches , Oval nestabilities , SU! photo corner punch , faux dew drops , DD glitter , ribbon , pink CS is also from SU! .
I decide to change the look of my blog again , I think I like it , hope you do too !

A Late Challenge !

Donna Baker issued a challenge on the Gina K forum on SCS at the last release to make a card with 2 layers including the card base and one ribbon and 3 embellishments all the same , this is what I came up with . I did not finish it in time to post it for the contest , I went 5 min over the time it was to be posted by so I did not post it .
I cut the card base out with my scallop rectangle nesties and the plain rectangle nesties for the white piece , I them took a black marker and went around the embossed frame to make it look like it had a layer of black behind it . I then added 3 rhinestone brads and ribbon . The main image is up on pop dots . Stamps by Inkadinkado .
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by !
PS. I still have the scallop punches for sale , scroll down to see the post !

Kody's Birthday Card

My youngest son Kody turned 14 on the 18th of October , he is a big fan of Hot Wheels cars and has a huge collection of them , so when I found these demensional stickers a few months ago at Dollar Tree I new I had to get them to make him a card for his birthday . Kody's dad Demitri helped me with the layout of the stickers and helped me chose the DSP to use . I used DSP from SU's Halloween Paper and Tempting Turquoise for cards base , Only Orange and Temp.Turq. were used for layering . The top piece looks layered but was too big to layer so I bordered it with Copic marker to make it look layered . I used my nestabilities to cut and emboss the white CS and use faux dewdrops (hand colored the red and green) to resemble stoplights . Kody really loved the card , he said it was awesome !

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !

P.S. Reminder that I have Scallop punches for sale second post below this one !

Lacyquilter Challenge

Melody over at Lilacs and Butterflies posted a challenge to make a card with lots of blue and atleast 1 butterfly , for a chance to win some blog candy , so this is what I came up with . I ran a dark blue piece of textured CS thru the cuttlebug with a Fiskars texture plate , used blue Spica glitter pen on some of the butterflies . Flowers are from an EK Success punch and have a glittered brad in the center of them . Used a butterfly corner punch in all the corners and added ribbon . Hope you like it Melody !
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day .

Scrap Bitz Blog Candy & Other Stuff

Suzanne over at Scrap Bitz has some awesome blog candy up for grabs , so hop on over and check it out !

I know I have not posted any cards in quite some time as it has been some time since I have had the chance to stamp . Our 14 year old autistic son has been extremely challenging over the past 6 months or so , which has left me physically and emotionally drained and I guess you could say mojoless if that is a word . I have recently made some cards , about 4 of them but I need to take pics of them so I can get them posted and I am going to try to get back in the swing of making cards on a regular basis again . Thanks to all of you who check my blog on a regular basis hoping to see something new posted . I should have something up in a day or so .
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !
