Three Little Cupcakes – Color Dare #293

It’s Friday…time for another Color Dare!

This week the Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team is creating with the colors:  Canary, Sapphire & Silver.

You might feel a theme happening with my Color Dare Challenges this month.  I really love the Festive Birthday stamp set and I can NEVER have enough birthday cards.  It’s been fun challenging myself to use the same stamp set but in totally different ways.

I hope you’ll take some time to create with us at the Color My Heart Color Dare , you can click HERE for the details of the Color My Heart Color Dare.

Thanks so much for stopping by…I hope you enjoyed my artwork and that you’ll take a minute to visit the other Design Team Members Blogs too!

Happy Mother’s Day

In 2012 I lost my mom to her third battle with Breast Cancer and I pretty much boycotted Mother’s Day until last year when a group of girlfriends asked me to a play and dinner. This year we are doing brunch and the Chihuly Glass & Gardens.

One of my favorite things about making cards is being able to personalize them. These are a few of the Mother’s Day cards that I made this year.

I hope you have a beautiful day!

Hey Cupcake – Color Dare #292

It’s Friday…time for another Color Dare!

This week the Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team is creating with the colors:  Bashful, Canary, & Linen.

Once again I used a pattern from Make It From Your Heart 4.  If you don’t have this little gem of a book – you need to get it ordered.  I also thought this sweet cupcake from the Festive Birthday card kit needed to find it’s way onto this card.  What’s a birthday without some banners and sparkles?

I hope you’ll take some time to create with us you can click HERE for the details of the Color My Heart Color Dare.

My question today is:  Do you think outside the box and use your card kit stamps for other than how they are packaged?

Thanks so much for stopping by…I hope you enjoyed my artwork.

 

One Pattern Four Ways

It’s no secret I’m crazy in love with the Make It From Your Heart pattern books and Volume 4 is no exception.  I reach for these books every time I need a little inspiration and a good pattern!

When you use one of the patterns you can simply rotate it 90 degrees in either direction and come up with a total of 4 magnificent patterns!

Each of my cards is made with the same pattern and papers from the Beautiful Friendship but they all have such a different look.

I appreciate you stopping by – I hope you’ll consider trying one of the Make It From Your Heart patterns on your next card making adventure.

 

Postcard Perfect

Did you know that May is National Scrapbooking Month?  Not a scrapbooker – no worries the Postcard Perfect products make GORGEOUS cards with a summertime theme.

The paper packet contains 16 sheets , including 4 sheets of white vellum in two different designs.  I love the printed design on the vellum…super cute when layered on B&T paper peaking through.  There is also a coodinating cardstock pack that includes an exclusive “mint” color that you won’t find anywhere else.

I’ll be sharing some fun artwork during May that will make you run right over to my website and add it to your cart.  Unfortunately, this special is only good during the month of May so you aren’t going to want to wait too long.

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment here and I’ll get back to you as soon as I finish my hula lessons 🙂

Good Things – Color Dare #291
