SIP CAS Wedding Challenge

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a CAS Wedding challenge for you

And here is my card


I have to admit I struggle with CAS cards! So this was a good challenge for me. I decided to make a pocket card. I created the base with basic black cardstock. Next I embossed two pieces of whisper white with the Stampin Up script embossing folder, trimmed in half diagonally to match the side panels and then using a sponge dauber rubbed Cool Caribbean Ink over the embossed areas and added these to the panels and secured the panels together with adhesive.  To finish the pocket I die cut 2 leaves in glimmer vellum and attached them where the folds come together and added a flower in the center. For the inside panel I started with a piece of basic black and then a layer of whisper white. I stamped the sentiment using the set Best Wishes by Hero Arts.  To finish I stamped the frame using Stampin Up Four Frames and punched that image using the Decorative Label punch and then stamped the Mr. and Mrs. using Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched it out with the Jewelry tag punch. I adhered this to the top of the panel using pop dots. 

Here you can see the inside panel

Until next time

100th Birthday

Good morning! Today I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  We have a fun Sketch Challenge for you to play along with 

I decided to use the Sketch to make a bday card for someone who is turning 100 next week. That isn’t a card you get to make very often so I had so much fun putting it together! Here is what I came up with


I started my card with a Whisper White card base and then added a layer of dsp using one side of the design and then another layer using the other side of the design. Next using the bundle Nunber of Years by Stampin Up I die cut the numbers for the 100 in Tempting Turquoise and glued them down. For the next step I stamped the th, flag banner, birthday and sentiment banner using the same SU bundle and cut using the matching dies. I attached both banners using dimensionals.  Now I die cut the happy using a Hero Arts die once in Tempting Turquoise and then again in white and glued them together at a slight offset and added to my card above the 100.  To finish I layered 2 precut flowers together and added Stickles in the center.  After the Stickles dried I added the flower right below the birthday banner. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! 

Until next time

Bunny Love

Good morning! I’m here to share our new challenge this week over at Stamp Ink Paper.  We have a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for you to play along with!


I choose the middle horizontal row and this is what I came up with

One of my co-workers is battling cancer and currently doing Chemotherapy and Radiation. He is having a really rough time and a bunch of us ladies at work are putting together an Easter basket for him to help lift his spirits. I was ask to make a card for his basket. 

I started with a YoYo Yellow card base and then added a layer of Kraft and then a layer of patterned paper. I Die cut the basket with Kraft paper using a Gina Marie die. I created a strip of grass using green cardstock and my Stampin Up fringe scissors and layered it behind the basket. And then Die cut 3 egg shapes and colored with my SU markers and added them in the grass.  To finish the basket I tied a piece of yellow ribbon on the handle and then attached the basket to the card. Next I stamped the bunny from the Unity set Lil Wee Bunny and colored with my copic markers then fussy cut and attached to the card using a wobble.  To finish I typed the sentiment and printed on white cardstock and backed it on Kraft and added to my card above the bunny and basket. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you can play along with us this week!

Until next time

Be Inspired

Good morning! Today I am over at Stamp Ink Paper with our new challenge. This week we have a color inspiration challenge for you. 

This is what I was inspired to make

I used a concord crush card base with a layer of basic grey. The main layer is Whisper white. I masked off the center with an oval and sponged inside the oval with Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Concord Crush. Next I stamped the branches and flower with a set from I Brake For Stamps. I outlined the flowers in the branches with a while gel pen and colored the flower petals with a concord crush marker. To finish I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Until next time

Hats Off To You

And here is my shaker card


I used a black card base and matted with red and then another layer of black. For the top layer I used a white layer with a rectangle cut out for the shaker part. I stamped the sentiments and hat before using foam tape to border the inside of the rectangle to hold the sequins.  Super fun and quick card.

SIP Challenge #88 – Anything But A Card

Good morning! After such a beautiful week of warm weather last week the cold is back. One positive to that is staying indoors and what better way to occupy your time than crafting! 

I would like to share our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week.  This challenge is Anything But A Card

Last week 2 of my nieces, 11 and 13, were in a horrific accident. They were sitting in my moms car in her driveway listening to the radio, which they do frequently, and were hit head on by a drunk driver who lost control of her truck and went crashing through the front yard and landed head on into the car. One of girls had to be air lifted from the scene. We are so thankful that the girls made it through this. So for my project this week I made them each a journal that they can use to write in daily.


Here is the cover of one of them. I still need to add titles to the fronts. I created the front and back covers with chipboard covered with paper. Each journal has 11 signatures. 


To bind the signatures to the covers I used waxed linen thread and the Coptic stitching method. 


As the girls are still very traumatized as to why this all happened I hope these journals will help them put their thoughts down on paper and begin to heal from this all. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. 

Until next time
