Papertake Weekly Challenge…

14 Jul

Well I managed to get some of the things I wanted to do, done today and now I’m back to this very addicting game of entering  into challenges 🙂  Everywhere I look there’s another challenge that entices me!  The wilder they get the more I love it!  The challenge at Papertake Weekly really sparked my interest as it was titled:  Hot Hot Hot.  This is the link to the challenge:  They were asking for Hot Colors including pink and that’s my favorite color to create with!  How could I resist?????  Here is the card I made for this challenge:

I totally cased this layout from one of my favorite Splitcoast members, AndreaEwen.  Here is the link to the card that inspired me  She makes the most beautiful cards!  If you want a treat, check out her gallery at SplitCoast Stampers or her blog: .   Thanks Andrea, I hope it’s okay that I used your layout for my card today! 🙂

I came across the Sentimental Sundays blog today and there were offering this sentiment digi freebie, the link to their blog is  They are offering this freebie for anyone and ask that we link their blog into out posts when using the freebie.

Now with that taken care of I will tell you a bit about my card.  I made the tag for the sentiment  using Martha Stewart Punch around the Page loops.  The flowers on my cards is by Heart Creations – Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set.  There is a matching Posy Patch Die, but I am going to have to save up for that one!  I cut the flowers out by hand which was surprisingly easy.  I stamped the flowers on to Stampin’ Up Melon Manbo paper using Onyx black ink by VersaFine, cut each flower out and rolled up the petals and glued them together.  Once I had them all glued together I added Fruit Punch Stickles to the edges of the petals and all the lines in the stamp and popped a gem in the center.  Here’s a closer look…

So pretty!  I couldn’t resist buying this stamp set, I love to make layered flowers for my cards.

If you click on the card it will enlarge it so you can see the fun paper piercing I did around the outside edge of the white background. For this I used Ecstasy Crafts Paper Punch Set PS101.  If you look back to this post  you will see a picture of this set..

Well I hope you get some inspiration from this card, it was really fun to make and I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for your interest!

Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger

14 Jul

Today I will be more productive…  Today I will not play in my craft room all day…  I have some errands to run and some stuff to do around the house so I thought I would make this post early and try to get moving!  Here is my entry for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger…

For this card I used the Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Punch around the Page punch set.  In the center of each little flower I put a dot of  buttercup Liquid Pearls.  I used my large Marvy daisy punch and punched out three daisy’s and then embossed them using my Bigshot and the Cuttlebug polka-dots embossing folder.  On each dot I put a little dab of Stardust Stickles to give them some glitz.  I put a black dot in the center of the flower and coated it with Glossy Accents clear dimensional medium to make it shine and added the little gem.  I thought this card turned out so pretty I just kept going with it…

I decided I want to make them for a set of all occasion cards in different colors….

Once I got all five completed I felt I needed to use a softer purple so the next time I will change this color.  Here is a closer look at a different angle…

I am very happy with how these little note cards turned out.  I think I will do up a few sets for gifts.

I hope you get some inspiration from my creations, and as always I love to read your comments, they always make my day!

Thanks for your interest!
