Colour Dare #183

I've been making time for my craft room lately and have been on a card roll!!  I've been using up scraps and looking through sketch books and old catalogs.  For this next card I was originally inspired by a card on page 102 of the Spring/Summer 2013 idea book from CTMH.  I knew I wanted it to be a mothers day card though.  I saw the colours on this weeks Colour Dare and thought I would incorporate the two.  So here's my card:

I used a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card as my base.  Retired Confetti wishes as the backdrop.  The flowers are inked in thistle and honey and there's a bit of bling on the center of them.  The sentiment is stamped in pear.  Quick, simple card.  My favourite!!  :)

Thanks for looking!!

On a Card Roll!!

I've spent the past few days making cards.  With a craft fair coming up in April, I wanted to refresh my stash and also it's a great excuse to get in my craft room and play!!  I've been looking through my sketch books and digging through my paper stash.  Now, I'm nowhere seeing the end of my scrap paper, but it's a start.  It's a great way to mix and match and see what I've been hoarding.  ;)  So here is what I've made so far.  I plan to do more Mothers Day cards, and also work on Fathers Day cards as well.

Most of these cards use CTMH paper.  If I see a sketch that speaks to me, then I make that card right away while the vision of the card is still clear.

Thanks for looking!!  Now I have to go back to being a mommy and trying to get my son to clean his room.  :p  Wish me luck!!  ;)

AHSC #149

With Mother's Day right around the corner, I wanted to start making some cards.  I'm participating in a craft fair later in April, and I want to have some cards available.  I saw this sketch at Atlantic Hearts, and almost immediately I envisioned the card in my head.  I used the stamp set Mother's Day Occasions (retired), and some retired Chantilly and For Always paper. So here's the sketch:

 Here is what I came up with:

What's a card without a little bling??!!  :)  Inside is stamped "Happy Mothers Day" in the same topiary green.

Thanks for looking!!

Colour Dare #182

I saw the colours for this weeks colour challenge, and thought I would give it a go.  Over the weekend, I had a couple of friends over to make cards, and we used Roar! (retired).  I decided to use this stamp set, but make a more girly card because girls love dinosaurs too!!  :)  Here is my card:

The background is stamped in Lagoon ink, the mats are in Sorbet and the dinos were stamped in Hollyhock.  I also stamped "Hope your day is dino-mite" inside in Hollyhock.  This took me all of about 5 minutes, and I think I shall make a bunch of these in different colour combos.  :)

Thanks for looking!!
