You Did It! Card

you did it pink poppies

So, I couldn’t possibly make a collection of encouragement cards without using my FAVORITE poppy stamp, could I??

I embossed the poppies in black, and colored them using a combination of ink pads and reinkers. And I threw in a few Swarovski crystals just because anything saying “You did it!” needs bling.

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Papertrey Ink White, Stampin’ Up! Pink Pirouette, inks – Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride, Certainly Celery (retired), Pink Pirouette, Pretty In Pink (retired), Rose Red, VersaFine Onyx Black, jewels – EK Success Swarovski Elements, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.

Lighthouse Anniversary Card – Fusion Card Challenge {Elegance}

fusion {elegance} anniversary

I got motivated by the latest Fusion Card Challenge {Elegance} over the weekend.

I embossed the lighthouse, and then colored around it with Copics.

Here is the Fusion inspiration:

Oh Happy Day! Card – Essentials by Ellen April Mix It Up Challenge

eb ellen april 2015 mix it up oh happy day

The Essentials by Ellen April Mix It Up Challenge is to mix any Essentials by Ellen products with any Lawn Fawn products.

I knew immediately I was going to use the “oh happy day!” sentiment (Bold Blooms) with the Lawn Fawn dachshund (Critters at the Dog Park & matching die).

I blended the grass and sky with Distress Inks, and attached the dachshund with foam tape (I didn’t have the right size wobble spring!).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Lawn Fawn, paper – Papertrey Ink White, Stampin’ Up! Creamy Caramel (retired), inks – Copic 110, E19, E53, Y18, YR0000, YR04, YR68, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Mowed Lawn, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – Martha Stewart.
