challenge, coincided with my friend's birthday.
This was a wooden frame from Michaels, that I covered with paper, painted black, and added a few flowers. Not to bad for a 50 cent frame! Thanks for looking!

While checking out other challenges, Mark's Finest Papers, wanted a card that was anything other than the normal card size. Below, is what I came up with:
I used two circle punches, to cut circles out of double sided adhesive. I then removed the backing from one side, and dipped it into my art glitter. Once this was done, I removed the other side, and adhered the circles to my card. I dusted off all of the extra glitter, and covered the circles with diamond glaze. Not only does this help the circles pop, but it also keeps all of that glitter in place. I finished it off with a Hero Arts stamp, that I colored in with Copic Markers.

This card is for the My Favorite Things challenge. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I need a card for a baby shower next weekend, and the mom-to-be doesn't know the baby's sex. The notecard on my card is removable, so that the MTB can complete the baby information, and add it to the baby's baby book. I really like the bright, happy colors of this card!
Supplies: DCWV paper, Stamping Up ink, Kaisercraft and Stamping Up stamps, ribbon, flowers and a button.<
Supplies: Heartfelt creation, The Paper studio and Kaisercrafts stamps; Distress and Colorbox Ink; Glimmer Mist, watercolor paper, Stamping Up embossing powder.

I was on the Hero Arts blog yesterday, and found a Summer contest. Hero Arts are looking for summer interpretations. Winners will be announced August 4th, when they will be giving out a handful of $50 gift cards to their online store!
I was checking out their how to videos, and saw a technique in which you stamp 3 colors of distress ink onto a craft mat, stamp the image, and then spray the stamp with water for a watercolor effect. I decided to use gold glitter mist instead, to add some shimmer to my summery card. I am also trying to use all of the stamps that I just had to had, but never used. This is the first time I have used this flower stamp, and I am really happy with the end product. Supplies used: Mustard Seed, Fired Brick and Worn Lipstick distress ink; Memento ink; Hero Art stamps; gold glimmer mist; corner rounder; ribbon; colored beads.

I love the Taylored Expression (TE) challenges, and as soon as I it, I knew exactly what I wanted to make! The above card was stamped with TE stamps, colored in with Copics. I added rick rack, and a little diamond glaze to make the blender pop.

After I left CHA, my creative slump disappeared! I couldn't wait to get home to make more cards. The next card I created was for the Card Pattern challenge. I am trying to make more of my own backgrounds, so I used the"You're a Hoot" for my background. Supplies used: Kelly Panacci, Hampton Arts, and Hero Art stamps; copic markers, ribbon, My Minds Eye adn DCVW paper.
I made it to CHA last Friday, where I fell in love with DeNami stamps. I checked out their blog, and found this informal challenge. What cute colors! How could I not participate!
For this card, I used copic markers with Hero Art, DeNami and Stamps by Judith stamps. I added stickles to the cupcake top, and Diamond glaze to a couple of the cupcakes. Hope you enjoy!
